The Widus Group, owner and developer of the Widus Hotel and Casino and the Clark Marriott Hotel in the Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone, has unveiled a new luxury lifestyle brand.
The move will see Widus bringing together its two resort developments in Clark under the new Hann Resorts banner.
Widus Hotel and Casino will be rebranded as Hann Casino Resort when its current expansion is completed in late 2020. Aside from the existing Clark Marriott Hotel, the resort will include the Hann Casino and Swissôtel Hotels and Resorts, which is expected to open by the last quarter of the year. The Widus Hotel and Casino shall be converted to the Mercure Hotel after its renovation is completed by 2022.
“[Hann Casino Resort] is going to be a genuine, truly first integrated resort outside Metro Manila with Marriott, with Swissotel, with Mercure, and a lot of entertainment and F&B,” said Daesik Han, president and CEO of Hann Development Corp, a member of the Widus Consortium. He added that Hann Resorts seeks to establish itself not only as an international destination brand for tourists, but also as a “powerful master brand”.
Meanwhile, a recently announced $238m development in nearby New Clark City will be called Hann Lux Lifestyle Resort.
