Still in its initial stages, Midori Clark Hotel and Casino is giving its early guests a sampling of how grand it’s property would be by the end of the year. With 44 rooms opened so far, the 111-room hotel (including a presidential suite), opened its doors to showcase a sampling of its authentic Taiwanese cuisine, huge 46-sqm sized room in its simplest category, outdoor balcony bathtubs in selected rooms, 400 person sit-down dinner capacity ballroom, mahjong rooms, and one of the best casino technologies equal to Macau.
At the end of the year, Midori Clark will be a Php40 billion, 10-hectare hotel, gardens, 400-room staff house, a 3-storey facility for long-staying guests, and a casino complex. It is expected that the property will contribute to Clark’s domestic and international tourist figures, especially with the promise of opening an ultramodern water theme park in October.
Already, the hotel has employed 400 hotel staff and almost an equal number in its casino reflecting its commitment to excellent service through its high employee to guest ratio.
“This is our first venture in Southeast Asia,” says Vic Chan, the hotel’s general manager. “We see a big opportunity in the Philippines as its economy improves year after year, I love it here,” he enthuses.
Clark Freeport Zone is set to become a major destination in the country as it becomes serious with plans to develop a Green City, the two-runway Clark International Airport, and talks of a Manila-Clark-Manila railway project.
