Four Points by Sheraton, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extraordinary portfolio of 31 hotel brands, announces the brand’s entry into the Philippines with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Palawan Puerto Princesa. The new hotel, the first Four Points by Sheraton property in the country, is located along beautiful Sabang Beach, about 70 kilometers or 90 mins drive northeast of Puerto Princesa City. The hotel is set to welcome ‘bleisure’ travelers, or travelers who combine business and leisure, as well as families to one of the country’s most gorgeous island destinations that retains its untamed wilderness, giving it a reputation as being ‘the Philippines’ last frontier’.
Nicknamed ‘The City in a Forest’, Puerto Princesa is famed for its breathtaking scenery with plenty of natural, cultural and historical sites to explore, including the Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Four Points by Sheraton Palawan Puerto Princesa is located at the heart of the natural reserve and is surrounded by long stretches of palm-lined white sand beaches, dense jungle, ancient mangroves, and limestone mountains. The area offers many opportunities for adventure, from its 8.2 kilometer-long Underground River to explore, the Sabang Mangrove Forest to paddle through, jungle paths to hike, crystal-clear waters to snorkel in and day trips by boat to the nearby isles.
“We are delighted to debut the first Four Points by Sheraton in the Philippines with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Palawan Puerto Princesa,” said Duke Nam, Area Vice President, Korea and Philippines, Marriott International. “Palawan is a destination that offers unparalleled cultural and natural adventure, allowing our Four Points brand philosophy of ‘Travel. Reinvented’ to shine. The new hotel welcomes guests with everything they need, including modern guest rooms, genuine service and an authentic sense of the locale in one of the Philippines’ must-visit destinations.”
Taking its design cues from its lush tropical setting on 5.25 hectares of unspoilt beachfront and the surrounding 22,000 hectares of protected marine area, the hotel invites guests to enjoy the luxury of space, and kick back and relax with a modern, breezy, open-air ambience. Throughout the hotel, spaces are framed by natural brick and wood, locally inspired high timbered ceilings and comfortable soft furnishings in palettes of sand, emerald and blue that echo the shades of the beaches, forests, ocean and sky.
The hotel offers 168 guest rooms, each featuring the signature Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed, modern marble-floored bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as balconies with scenic views of the mountains and beaches. Suite rooms offer increased flexibility with 47 square meters and a 65-inch flat-screen TV.
Two restaurants and a pool bar let guests explore the delightful cuisine of Puerto Princesa, inviting them to embrace a true farm-to-table dining experience featuring the best of local ingredients. Guests can dine outdoors by the sea at Evolution, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant with an open kitchen and live cooking stations. Italian restaurant Il Fiore also features al fresco seating, where guests can enjoy upscale Italian cuisine and creative cocktails with the fresh ocean breezes of Sabang Beach. The best accompaniment for every meal is a local craft beer straight from the tap, courtesy of the Four Points by Sheraton signature Best Brews™ selection, which showcases the area’s culture and authentic flavors through locally brewed beers.
The hotel’s 1,367 square meter swimming pool, with the iconic Pool Bar right in the middle, is the ideal spot to relax and sip cocktails. Guests can work out at any time of the day at the hotel’s 24/7 fitness center and wind down at the sauna or in-house spa. For families traveling with young children, the playground at the Kids Club makes for an exciting hangout.
For events, Four Points by Sheraton Palawan Puerto Princesa offers outdoor open-air setups, perfect for social gatherings such as weddings, parties, and concerts. Indoor venues for meetings will be available in 2024, offering complimentary fast Wi-Fi and equipped with the latest audio-visual technology.
“Sabang Beach is the perfect destination for solo travelers, groups or families looking for adventure off the beaten path, and to wake up every day in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage site,” said Dietmar Platz, General Manager, Four Points by Sheraton Palawan Puerto Princesa. “Our hotel is ideally situated for enjoying all of it together with the outstanding hospitality of Four Points by Sheraton, and we look forward very much to welcoming guests to discover and explore this uniquely beautiful destination.”
The new hotel is approximately 75 kilometers from Puerto Princesa airport and a 90-minute direct flight away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, making this destination easily accessible to local and international travelers.
