Hilton, one of the renowned hospitality companies in the world, today announced the opening of the 308-room Hilton Clark Sun Valley Resort. Owned by Donggwang Clark Corporation, the hotel is a short 12-minute drive from Clark International Airport and located close to the city’s main business hubs and entertainment attractions, such as Clark Museum, Aqua Planet and Nayong Pilipino.
It sits on a 300-hectare land that includes a casino, a private golf country club, an international school, and luxury residential villas, among others. The hotel provides guests with a complement of services and amenities, including 1,800 sq.m. of meeting space, outdoor pool, valet and laundry services, fitness center, outdoor jogging path, spa, and restaurants.
“We are delighted to welcome Hilton Clark Sun Valley Resort to the Hilton family as our third hotel in the country,” said Paul Hutton, vice president, operations, South East Asia, Hilton. “Hilton is on a promising growth trajectory in the Philippines, with the launch of Conrad Manila back in 2016 followed by Hilton Manila in 2018. This is testament to our commitment to the Philippines and we are confident emerging destinations in the country, such as Clark, are well positioned to cater to both business and leisure travelers from within and outside the Philippines.”
For her part, Alexandra Jaritz, senior vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, said: “As our flagship brand, Hilton Hotels & Resorts is known the world over for its exceptional service, delivered by a team of committed and passionate Team Members. Our Hilton hotels have also set the benchmark for hospitality around the world, providing new product innovations and services to meet guests’ evolving needs. I am confident Hilton Clark offers domestic and, in the longer-term, international travelers to Clark, exactly that and more with its strategic location and a wide range of leisure facilities that are all readily accessible, providing an all-encompassing experience for guests staying with us.”
In recent years, Clark has earned its place as a thriving business, aviation and tourism hub in the Philippines. With Clark International Airport now positioned as the second major gateway to the Philippines, the city is more than a free port zone, connecting visitors to year-round festivals and celebrations, such as the Vios Racing Festival and the Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.
