Megaworld Unveils “The Sampaguita” Brand of Hospitality. Megaworld Hotels & Resorts (MHR) is set to offer an extraordinary and immersive experience that appeals to all five senses through its new brand of service.
Centered around sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch, this homegrown hotel brand will adopt the Sampaguita, the national flower of the Philippines, as the symbol of its warm and hospitable approach, commencing on July 27.
When traveling and staying in a hotel, guests often experience profound emotions. MHR aims to deepen this connection by infusing the essence of the Sampaguita into every aspect of their hospitality.
This iconic flower represents the brand’s dedication to providing meaningful stays, leaving a lasting impression on guests and fostering strong customer loyalty.
As the Philippines’ largest homegrown hospitality management chain, Megaworld Hotels and Resorts proudly showcases six diverse brands across 12 locations, offering a total of 8,000 rooms, with more exciting projects in the pipeline.
Despite challenges, the hotel group has flourished, evolving from its first property, Richmonde Hotel Ortigas under the Prestige Hotels Group in 1999, to become the leading homegrown hospitality brand, showcasing the best of the Philippines in each of its establishments.
Among the notable hotels and resorts under the MHR umbrella are Belmont Hotel in Boracay and Manila, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, and Iloilo, Savoy Hotel in Boracay, Manila, and Mactan Newtown, Hotel Lucky Chinatown, Twin Lakes Hotel in Tagaytay, Kingsford Hotel Manila in Paranaque, and the recently added Belmont Hotel Mactan.
The group is also eagerly anticipating the unveiling of the Chancellor Hotel in Boracay, boasting 550 rooms. As well as the grand introduction of the Grand Westside Hotel, the largest hotel in the country, featuring an impressive 1,500+ rooms.
Under the Sampaguita Project, MHR aims to elevate and captivate guests through the stimulation of their five senses.
