Red Planet Hotels has delivered on its key promise of sustainable and planned expansion to announce it now has over 3,000 rooms under construction for the pioneering value Tune Hotels brand, contained in a portfolio of 19 hotels spanning three countries – Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia.

The milestone of 3,000 rooms under development comes exactly 12 months after the investment company passed the 1,000-room mark, posting growth of 200% over the last year.


This sustained strategic growth sees Red Planet Hotels with projects worth USD120 million now underway before it hopes to raise another USD100 million in equity by the first quarter of 2012.

Red Planet will have six Tune Hotels open by March next year, and will have 15 properties operational by December 2012. Chief Executive Officer, Tim Hansing (right), said the company will use revenue from the soon-to-be operating hotels (see table below) to invest and increase its room inventory further – aimed to increase by a minimum of 2,000 rooms per year over the next five years.


“We have delivered on our aggressive growth targets and our track record now speaks for itself,” he said. “Taking Red Planet Hotels from 1,000 rooms 12 months ago to 3,000 today is a remarkable achievement and is testament to the quality of our people and our ability to hit planned and strategic expansion projections.

“The team has built a highly effective platform to enable our investors to benefit from the surge in hotel demand across the region and, in particular, from the leisure consumer and business market segments seeking unrivalled value that Tune Hotels deliver.”

Red Planet Hotels has a franchise agreement with Tune Hotels and will operate their portfolio under the Tune brand. Tune Hotels is the accommodation associate of Asia’s largest low cost carrier - Air Asia - and its growing global portfolio that will revolutionise the way “limited service” hotels are managed and the experience they provide.

“This year has been a year of acquiring and building, we will continue with this pace of growth for the foreseeable future. In December we will open our first Tune Hotel in Thailand, after which we will open an average of one hotel every month,” Mr Hansing said.

"Once this opening schedule is underway we will look to raise additional funds to allow our pace of strategic growth to increase so we can open a hotel every two weeks.”

Red Planet Hotels currently has assets in Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia and will soon have sites for development in China. The China hotels will also come under the Tune brand.

Tune Hotels is a value hotel brand that provides high quality accommodation with the basic essentials such as central and convenient locations, a clean environment, 24-hour security, highly comfortable beds and power showers. Using a demand-based pricing booking system, guests can book rooms at prices starting from USD3.

MANILA, Philippines — Department of Transportation and Communications (DoTC) Secretary Mar A. Roxas II said by the end of 2012, a new gateway to Mindanao will be opened once the P7.8-billion Laguindingan International Airport in Misamis Oriental is completed.

Roxas said the construction of the airport is currently ongoing with no delays so far. The airport will be the northern counterpart of the Davao International Airport, which is located in the southern part of Mindanao.

The project is funded by the Economic Development and Cooperation Fund of Korea, with a $30.60 million share; the Export Credit Loan Facility of the Korea Export-Import Bank (KEXIM), with a $62.75 million contribution; and the Philippine government with a $60.36 million counterpart fund.

Relatedly, the construction of the Air Navigation and Support Facilities is estimated to cost $13.38 million.

Upon completion, the Laguindingan Airport will be transferred to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

The operation and maintenance contract of the terminal facilities will be bidded out to the private sector in the first quarter of 2012.

Languindingan Airport is one of four airport projects under the DoTC Greenfield Program. The other three airports are located in Bohol, Puerto Princesa, and New Legaspi.

Roxas said President Benigno S. Aquino III is currently interested on where to establish a new airport in Bohol — whether at the existing airport in Tagbilaran or at Panglao Island. The project’s estimated cost is P8 billion.

“The President wants to be frugal and cost-effective in using the people’s money. So he wants to determine whether it is better to expand the Tagbilaran airport by 700 meters versus building 2,500 meters in Panglao. The cost of the terminal is the same. The avionics will be the same. At the end of all of this, Bohol will get its modern facility," he said

Roxas explained that if the project would push through in Panglao island, the airport will have to be built from scratch. If it will be in Tagbilaran, the existing airport will be extended. The feasibility study on the project is said to be due this November.

On the other hand, the feasibility study on the P4.2 billion Puerto Princesa airport is expected to be completed by the end of the last quarter of this year. Through an Official Development Assistance (ODA) fund, Koreans have expressed willingness to fund the air and land components of the project. The $71 million cost will be payable over 40 years with an annual interest of 0.1 percent.

The proposed international airport in Legaspi is to replace the existing airport to maximize tourism potential of the beaches and whale-watching sites in Caramoan, Camarines Sur and Donsol, Sorsogon respectively. An ODA fund will finance the construction of facilities, runway, apron, and terminals.

October 16, 2011

Foreigners who will visit the annual Lanzones Festival to be held next week on Camiguin Island will have a chance to update their visas without going to the immigration’s main office in Intramuros, Manila.

This after Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. approved yesterday the request of the Camiguin provincial government for the bureau to set up an immigration booth when the province celebrates its festivity on Oct. 20.

David said a team of BI officials will travel to Camiguin and man the booth which will serve as a one-stop shop for foreign tourists who will be visiting the island during the festival.

The BI chief added aside from providing visa extension services, the one-stop shop will also entertain queries and disseminate information about the various services provided by the BI to foreigners visiting the country.

“We hope that through this one-stop shop, foreigners who will join the festivities will be encouraged to frequently visit not only Camiguin but also explore other tourist spots in the Philippines,” David said in a statement.

He said the BI will study the feasibility of putting similar one-stop shops in other places of the country that hold annual festivities and attract large numbers of foreign tourists.

BI boarding section chief Theodore Pascual disclosed the one-stop shop activity will be held in the capital town of Mambajao on Oct. 20 and Oct. 21.

Pascual said personnel from the bureau’s computer section in Manila and the BI-Cagayan de Oro field office, including a payment assessor and cashier, will man the booth to provide visa extension services to foreigners.

Other agencies such as the Department of Foreign Affairs, National Statistics Office, National Bureau of Investigation and Professional Regulation Commission will also participate in the one-stop shop activity that was organized by the Camiguin provincial government.

Pascual was invited to speak at a public forum to discuss the latest policies and regulations implemented by the BI as chief regulator of the entry and stay of foreigners in the Philippines.

Aside from boosting local tourism, the activity also aims to generate employment opportunities for Camiguin residents, according to a primer released by the island’s provincial capitol.

White Island in Camiguin (Photo by Rhonson Ng)
MANILA, Philippines -- The smallest island province in Northern Mindanao is shaped like a pear with its land area measuring only 29,187 hectares. An estimated population of only 75,000 locals ranks it the second smallest province in the Philippines. But this small wonder is filled with a rich historical past, and a territory replete with a pristine ecosystem, shaped from the natural course of volcanic movements.

This top tourist destination is home to seven volcanoes, and is basically volcanic in origin, making it a veritable hot spot of a location (locals refer to it as the “Island Born of Fire”). Volcanoes that shaped both land and culture of the people are Mount Vulcan, Mount Guinsiliban, Mount Timpoong, Mount Uhay, Mount Tres Marias, Mount Mambajao, and the most active, Mount Hibok-Hibok. A challenging trek to its peak will afford a panoramic view of Mindanao, Siquijor and Bohol.

To us, it didn’t matter whether or not seismic activity would happen as we neared the island. We were determined to explore soon as our eyes caught sight of it from the ferry we boarded on.

We booked our stay in advance at the Paras Beach Resort (www.parasbeachresort.com) as it was the Lenten season, and the island was filled with tourists out to have some quiet R&R with friends and family. The resort was an ideal location because it was only a short trip from Mambajao, its capital town, and just a three-minute ride by boat across the sea to the famous White Island.

This striking powdery white sand bar is usually first on the list to explore. Shaped like a parenthesis, it is entirely uninhabited, save for vendors with their makeshift roofs and umbrellas who offer to catch fresh seafood and cook your meals for you. From its backdrop rise Mount Hibok-Hibok and Mount Vulcan. Boats float on standby for rides, while parasailing is a frequent adventure for the more daring ones. The place is best for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing, but you better lather the best sun protection you can find all over your body. It gets hotter as the sun rises midday.

At noon when the tide rises, though, most of the white isle is submerged by a couple of feet, so some tourists leave by that time. It didn’t bother us, as we ate grilled tuna and barbecue with the knee deep waters around us. Low tide came back later in the afternoon, as we waited for a glorious sunset to cloak the island in a muted, reddish glow.

The island tour is an educational experience as well as a feast for the photographer’s eye. Rent a jeepney or van and you can round up Camiguin’s best sites in a day.

The Cross Marker and Sunken Cemetery located in Bonbon, Catarman was once a community cemetery devastated and sunk by the 1871 volcanic catastrophe (Vulcan Daan) and is now marked and guarded by a large cross. What makes it an interesting dive site is the sunken gravestones you find underneath.

Built in 1623, the old Catarman or Gui-ob church (Cotta Bato) in Bonbon once stood proudly before it was devastated by the 1871 Vulcan Daan earthquake, wiping out a Spanish settlement dating back to 1697. What remained are the moss and vine-covered stone walls, belfry and convent as a lasting memorial to its Spanish era.

Katibawasan Falls cascades down at 76.2 m. (250 feet), one of the highest waterfalls in the country. The water is icy cold where it touches the rock pool surrounded by lush giant ferns, plants and shiny boulders from granite mountain walls. People come in for picnics and a cool, invigorating swim after a humid day. One has to descend into a stairway of more than 60 steps to reach the falls.

Other highlights of the Camiguin experience are the 14 Stations of the Cross (life-sized cement statues depicting the passion, death and resurrection of Christ are scattered across the old volcano slope), the Sto. Nino Cold Springs, Ardent Hot Springs and other falls that dot the island. Every October, the Lanzones Festival is observed with pride to celebrate the abundance of harvest of this sweet fruit.

For dive enthusiasts, a visit across the six-hectare mushroom-shaped Mantigue Island is a must. Merely a 30-minute boat ride away, the isle is endowed with a thick forest bordered by white sands and blue waters. A spectacular drop off showcases an underwater aquarium that will delight divers.

Philippine Airlines flies from Manila to Cagayan de Oro daily for an hour and 20 minutes. A cab from the airport will take you to the bus terminal at the Agora Market. Ride a bus bound for Balingoan town, where a ferry boat travels for an hour to Camiguin. The Benoni Wharf and Guinsiliban are two points of entry to the island. Ferry boats are on hourly schedule, and some visitors opt to take their vehicles across the sea for convenience (but more expensive).

Don’t leave Camiguin without buying a souvenir item from its long stalls of inexpensive stuff sold and created by the locals themselves. There are trinkets, bracelets and necklaces that are unique and ethnic-inspired perfect for pasalubongs and for personal use. As one sign board puts it, “COME AGAIN SOUVENIRS.” ---a brief but exact description for an enchanting island you would like to revisit soon.

Although it’s pretty obvious, the pedestrian overpass linking Limketkai Gateway to Mindanao University of Science & Technology (MUST) is slowly exhibiting a Chinese-inspired design.

Its been a long time since I posted updates on this one. My previous post was last June 2, 2011. As shown in the photos, modern Chinese architecture is evident with the layered roofing. I believe the designer considered the overpass as an extension of the Limketkai Gateway building which also reflects some Chinese features.



Accordingly, the access stairs seen will be complimented by an escalator…now, this is something new.

MANILA, Philippines - The government is on track in implementing the P7.8-billion Laguindingan airport project in Misamis Oriental province, which will have a new international airport and become a northern gateway to Mindanao once the project is completed by end-2012, according to Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Mar A. Roxas II.

“By the end of next year, you will have a fully operational airport in Laguindingan,” assured Roxas in a statement Friday.

Laguindingan’s construction is on-going and is not seen to encounter delays, Roxas said.

Operation and maintenance (O&M) contract of the terminal facilities will be bidded out to the private sector in the first quarter of 2012.

The Laguindingan airport is one of the government’s greenfield or missionary projects.

It is eyed to be the main airport of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities in northern Mindanao, as a counterpart of the Davao international airport in Southern Mindanao. It is expected to help boost Mindanao’s potential as a national food basket being an exporter of the country’s major agricultural exports such as banana and coconut.

The construction is funded through the $30.60 million Economic Development and Cooperation Fund of Korea, $62.75 million Export Credit Loan Facility of the Korea Export-Import Bank (KEXIM), and $60.36 million from the Philippine government. The Air Navigation and Support Facilities Plans is estimated to cost $13.38 million.

It will be transferred to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines once constructed.

Three other airport projects are part of DOTC’s Greenfield program. These are the Bohol, Puerto Princesa, and New Legaspi airports.

“The government is fully committed to a world-class airport for Bohol’s tourism drive. It will have a modern terminal facility, modern avionics (electronic systems in aircrafts) and communication facilities. It will have a 2,500- meter runway. There’s no time delay because the feasibility study is due to be finished by November,” Roxas said.

However, President Benigno Aquino III is interested in determining the best location for the Bohol airport—whether in the existing airport in Tagbilaran or the prospective tourism spot in Panglao Island. The project was originally estimated to cost P8 billion.

“The president just wants to make sure whether this facility will be in Panglao island where we have to build from scratch, or in Tagbilaran and simply extend the airport,” said Roxas.

In Tagbilaran, there is already a 1,500-meter runway.

“The president wants to be frugal and cost-effective in using the people’s money. So he wants to determine whether it is better to expand the Tagbilaran by 700 meters versus building 2,500 meters in Panglao. The cost of the terminal is the same. The avionics will be the same. At the end of all of this, Bohol will get its modern facility,” he said.

For the P4.2 billion Puerto Princesa airport, a feasibility study is expected to be completed by the end of the last quarter. Koreans have expressed willingness to fund the air and land components through an Official Development Assistance (ODA) fund worth $71 million payable over 40 years at 0.1 percent annual interest.

In Legaspi, the proposed international airport was envisioned to replace the existing Legaspi airport in order to maximize the tourism potential of the beaches and whale-watching sites of Caramoan in Camarines Sur and Donsol, Sorsogon. Its airside facilities, runway, apron, and terminal are proposed to be financed too through an ODA. The terminals will subsequently be bidded out for private sector operation.

MANILA, Philippines -- There are times when city life can become dreary. The smothering pollution, the endless heavy traffic and the massive number of people have been slowly taking its toll on urbanites. The chaotic monotony has compelled city dwellers to look for kicks that either aim to get away from the confines of the metropolis or look at it under a completely new light.

Although it’s a lot easier to just pack your bags and head off for the weekend, the latter option also holds a lot of promise. Apart from saving a wad of dough, searching for quirky activities in the city is an adventure in itself.

While weekend fun runs might suffice for thrill seekers to exploit, Rexona ups the ante by bringing in a whole world of adventure into the metro. With the Rexona Adventure 2011, the brand continues its thrust of promoting sports by recently hosting the Rexona Run together with the Rexona Adventure Hub along the sprawling SM Mall of Asia grounds.

“We’re really focusing on our sports advocacy and the events that we have this year are a reinforcement of what we started last year,” shares Rexona brand manager Anne Remulla. The Rexona Run is already on its second year and the organizers decided to make the event bigger by including other activities at the Rexona Adventure Hub. “Last year we only had the Rexona Run but this year is different because aside from the run we also have the adventure hub to go along with it,” Remulla adds.

The Adventure Hub was up for the entire weekend but it really came alive during the morning of the Rexona Run as the runners, together with their family and friends, continued feeding their adrenaline with the adventure activities installed. Among the highlights of the hub were a completely disorienting Zorb Maze, a nerve racking Free Fall, a tedious Wall Climb, an exhilarating Zip Line and an out-of-this-world Reverse Bungee.

“What we really want to do was make the people experience adventure. So we thought of bringing different adventure activities you can do in different places in the Philippines into one place for people to enjoy,” Remulla explains.

Adhering to their advocacy towards promoting sports development, proceeds from the event will be donated to the Field of Dreams project. The program seeks to build a multi-purpose field in the Smokey Mountain compound, provide equipment and implement a sustainable training program for the children around the area. Spearheaded by Junior Chamber International Manila and Gawad Kalinga, the project aims to reach eight schools and more than 5,000 families around the community.

Aside from opening a venue to spend an adventurous weekend, Rexona also provided a chance to go on a real adventure through the prizes given away during the activity. All finishers were qualified to win one of three adventure trips to the Great Wall in China while Adventure Hub participants got a chance to bag an adventure package for four to either one of three local destinations: Mt. Province, Bohol or Cagayan de Oro.

BMW posts 30% sales hike, to expand network

SUNDAY, 16 OCTOBER 2011 17:19 ARMIN A. AMIO / COMPANIES EDITOR

IT appears the country’s premium luxury market remains unaffected by the continuing economic slowdown. This, as Asian Carmaker Corp. (ACC)—importer and distributor of BMW cars in the country—reported a 32-percent share of the market at sales of 560 units. Month-on-month, September car sales went up by 30 percent.

While the total automotive industry is down, the total premium luxury segment in the country registered a 3-percent increase in September 2011 year-to-date figures compared with the same period in 2010. ACC President Maricar Parco attributed this improved performance to the “strong performance of the X Series, 7 Series, 5 Series and 1 Series.”

The X Series was the best-selling SUV in the premium segment with total year-to-date unit sales at 158, chalking up 32-percent share in this category. Flagship model 7 Series held a 27-percent share of its segment, with year-to-date sales at 33 units. It was, however, the 1 Series which achieved the largest growth in all classes, with a sales hike of 94 percent. With a minimum of P2-million retail price in this class, this is ACC’s “most affordable” model in its lineup.

Glen Dasig, Executive Director for sales and marketing, said the company plans to strengthen its position as having the largest network among the luxury premium car market by further expanding to southern Philippines. ACC will open its sixth dealership in Cagayan de Oro, seen as one of the emerging provinces in Mindanao. “The goal is to sustain growth and momentum,” Dasig said.

Year-to-date growth in sales for BMW in the Philippines is currently at 8 percent. Dasig said the company is confident that it will end 2011 with a double-digit growth rate in car sales.

ACC expects to launch another model before the year ends, possibly the new 1-Series which was revealed by BMW in June.

Global sales of BMW in September saw a 9.3-percent increase in sales as against the 2010 tally, resulting in a 14.5-percent year-to-date growth in sales over that of last year. In September, BMW sold 128,446 units worldwide. BMW Global reported 2010 year-to-date sales at 892,000, while it has achieved over 1,021,000 unit sales in 2011.

“BMW remains to be the undisputed leader in the premium luxury segment for nine consecutive years,” said Parco. “A well-positioned and identifiable premium brand supported by leading-edge products and a highly professional dealership network are key strategic advantages that allow BMW to keep its leadership position and deliver joy to customers here and around the world.”
