Accor has partnered PTC Holdings to develop Asia’s first Pullman Living and Novotel Living brands in the Philippines.
Suitable for long and short stays, both brands are unveiled earlier this year to “reinvent the serviced apartment concept with social spaces and modern dining”, Accor said in a statement.
“We are very excited to introduce Pullman Living and Novotel Living to Asia,” said Jeff Tisdall, senior vice president of development, residential and extended stays at Accor.
“A highly innovative dining experience sets the Pullman Living brand apart, including pop-up restaurants and food trucks, while Novotel Living focuses on welcoming and relaxing social spaces where residents can meet, work, play and dine,” he added.
Slated to open in 4Q2022, the 200-room Pullman Living Manila and the 300-room Novotel Living Manila will be located within two apartment complexes in the Makati CBD, a short walk to the high-end district of Ayala Avenue and Greenbelt shopping mall.
Novotel Living Manila will offer residents exclusive access to a Clubhouse that features a shared kitchen, library and a play area. The development will include retail outlets, an all-day dining restaurant and bar, a spa, fitness centre, meeting rooms, business centres and a ballroom. Guests will be able to make use of in-house services, including kitchen stocking and re-stocking, personal trainers and pre-prepared meals.
Meanwhile, Pullman Living will provides a stylish and intelligent private sanctuary with re-imagined hospitality experiences including unique dining concepts, the Pullman Porter, seamless and intuitive technology and a bold, vibrant art-led design.
In addition to Pullman Living and Novotel Living, Accor owns nearly 300 extended stay properties under brands like Mondrian Living, Swissôtel Living, Mövenpick Living, Mercure Living and Hyde Living.
Accor currently operates eight hotels in the Philippines under the Raffles, Fairmont, Sofitel, Movenpick, Novotel and Mercure brands, with a pipeline of 12 hotels and serviced apartments scheduled to open in the country over the next five years.
