Ascott Celebrates 30 Years Of Hospitality Excellence

8:51:00 PM

CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), continues to extend its global footprint in the Philippines as it celebrates its 30th anniversary with special promotions for its customers that include discounted rates and free nights.

Ascott, which pioneered Asia-Pacific’s first international-class serviced residence in 1984, established its presence in the Philippines with the opening of Somerset Millennium Makati in 2000.  It has since gained a strong foothold in the Philippines with more than 1,500 serviced residence units across eight operating and upcoming properties.

Ascott has also garnered numerous awards in the Philippines. At the 2013 World Travel Awards for Asia & Australasia, Ascott The Residence and Ascott Makati respectively won ‘Leading Serviced Apartment Brand’ and ‘Leading Serviced Apartments’ in the Philippines.  Ascott Makati was among the top three serviced residences in Asia-Pacific along with other Ascott properties in the 2013 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards.  Both Ascott Makati and Somerset Millennium Makati have received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for four years in a row. 

Mr Arthur Gindap, Ascott’s Regional General Manager for the Philippines and Thailand, said: “As Ascott celebrates 30 years of successful business, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to our customers who have made Ascott Makati, Somerset Millennium Makati and Somerset Olympia Makati their home whenever they visit the Philippines.”

He said: “This year, we are launching Ascott’s Citadines brand in the country. With the opening of Citadines Salcedo Makati on 30 May 2014, travelers will now be able to choose from all our three brands of serviced residences to meet their different lifestyle requirements.  We also look forward to welcoming guests outside of Makati City with the opening of AscottBonifacio Global City Manila in September 2014, Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila in 2015 and Somerset Alabang Manila in 2017.  To further strengthen Ascott’s position as the largest serviced residence owner-operator in the country, we are looking to expand in and outside Metro Manila.”
MrGindap added: “At Ascott, we are committed to continuous innovation and going the extra mile to create the best stay experience.  Earlier this year, we completed the refurbishment of the apartments and guest facilities at Somerset Olympia Makati to provide guests an enhanced level of comfort.  To celebrate Ascott’s 30th anniversary, we would like to reward our customers and continue to give back to the community. In January 2014, with strong support from CapitaLand Hope Foundation, Ascott in the Philippines donated PHP1.87 million to World Vision to help rebuild the homes and livelihood and ensure the well-being of children through interventions in education and health.
