Red Planet Philippines announced that they secured the rights to their highly anticipated property in Bonifacio Global City-Taguig — Red Planet BGC The Fort. The feat is a milestone for Red Planet Philippines, being “The First Real Budget Hotel” within the district. The acquisition of its parent company, Red Planet Hotels Manila Corp. came into full circle through the recent ownership of Red Planet Hotels by Polaris Holdings Co., a JPX listed company based in Tokyo, Japan.
With an impressive 245-room inventory, it boasts the most beds a Red Planet Hotel has ever had yet. “We are confident that this acquisition will open new opportunities and help us further solidify our position as a leader in the budget hotel scene in the Philippines and beyond. We have exciting new features brought to our new flagship like hotel Wi-Fi 6, Google Chromecast, and our online Express Check-in,” says Red Planet’s new chief executive officer Florent Humeau.
Now in its final stages of development, the new flagship hotel is slated to open by January 2024, right in the heart of Bonifacio Global City’s thriving Uptown District. Director of revenue management, Bernice Santos, shares, “Our vision for this hotel is to be a game changer in BGC’s limited pool of budget hotels.”
With a flagship Red Planet hotel opening in one of the country’s most prime locations, this places the brand as one of the trendsetters in the industry’s niche. The current roster also saw major improvements in the last few months, and will continue to do so. Guests can expect a feeling of “Affordable Luxury” in each hotel, bringing all new features from Red Planet BGC The Fort to these properties as well.
“The hotel is very much anticipated and the online buzz never stopped! We are unfazed that as a household name, Red Planet BGC The Fort will be part of our new tagline, “Your Favorite Budget Hotels,” moving forward. Our innovations are sure to draw attention since these are things our competition does not have,” said Caezar Gawaran, Red Planet’s former group marketing director.
Red Planet Hotels is a privately owned regional hotel group, with properties in key locations in the Philippines (10 hotels in Metro Manila, four in select destinations) and Thailand (two hotels in Bangkok, three in prime destinations), operating a total of 19 hotels with 3,266 rooms. These hotels operate with Red Planet’s innovative technology platform, providing an advanced, efficient booking system, strong loyalty program, and the latest Wi-Fi technology.
