SMIC looks for sites other than Hamilo Coast project to develop
By James A. Loyola, 25 Jun 2008
Source: Manila Bulletin


Hamilo Coast, Batangas-SM Investment Corporation's hotel investments division, through subsidiary Hotel Specialists Inc., is looking at options for beach resort projects in popular tourist destinations such as Palawan and Bohol in addition to its similar development in Pico de Loro, Hamilo Coast, Batangas.

In an interview with reporters, SMIC senior vice president in charge of SM Hotels Merril Yu said they are currently reviewing demographics to see if such projects will make sense for the company to develop.

While SM's hotel business is normally aimed at areas where there are existing SM malls or other projects within the group, Yu said the search for beach resort sites is being done in areas where the SM group has yet to acquire properties.

He said this part of the SM group's thrust to develop projects that will tap into the country's growing tourism industry in its optimism that the industry will be the source of strong growth for the group.

Yu said they are also considering island-resort projects but the focus will mainly be on bigger hotel projects that will provide great quality combined with good value just like all SM businesses.

SM Hotels expects to name an operator for its planned P420 million hotel project in Hami1o Coast's Pico de Loro, which is envisioned to be an upscale hote1 with 154 guest rooms.

SMIC is also constructing two beach clubs in Pico de Loro and is currently marketing 4,000 membership shares consisting of 800 corporate membership shares and 3,200 individual shares. Current price for a corporate share is P850,000 while individual shares go for P460,000 each.

SM Hotels is aggressively spearheading the group's entry into the tourism business by earmarking P6.35 billion for the construction of both luxury and boutique hotels.

Yu said that, from having just 128 rooms in Taal Vista Hotel, SM's hotels will have 660 rooms under its portfolio by the end of 2008 and 1,394 guest rooms by the first half of 2010.

Hotel Specialists is spending some P280 million to build two "beta" boutique hotels to test the market for the Small hotels they plan to put up near SM’s 30 malls nationwide.

Yu said they will start construction this year but declined to disclose the location of the two test hotels but said these will be beside SM Malls. They are now looking for foreign hotel operators to manage this new boutique chain.

However, he revealed that these will test out the two models they have which is for a 150-room hotel and a smaller one with just 50 rooms adding that cost of construction amounts to about P1.4 million per room or P210 million and P70 million, respectively.


The firm is also in the middle of the P650-million expansion of Taal Vista which will add another wing to the hotel with 132 rooms and a new ballroom that can seat up to 1,000 guests.

SM also invested P2.6 billion on the upscale Sofitel Cebu hotel which will open at the end of this year through a partnership With Accor Group which operates over 3,800 hotels worldwide.

Yeah 'Casa' and S& M earned sleazy connotations.

Is that what they are aiming for? Like a motel?

I believe this is a working name, they've said they were looking for hotel management partners.

bakit naman CASA ang pinangalan...although "Casa" means house in Spanish, in VisMin, it's a slang for "brothel"
