The 313-room Paragua Sands Hotel in San Vicente, Palawan will be just a few steps away from the beach and will feature views of the nearby beach and mountains
Property giant Megaworld, the country’s largest developer and operator of homegrown Filipino hotel brands, is building its second hotel development inside its 462-hectare Paragua Coastown ecotourism township in San Vicente, Palawan.
The 10-story Paragua Sands Hotel will offer 313 guest rooms and suites in varied layouts, ideal for tourists and travelers visiting the picturesque town of San Vicente. Room types and sizes range from Twin Suite (up to 32 square meters), Queen Suite (up to 32.5 square meters), Junior Suite (up to 61 square meters), Executive Suite (up to 60.5 square meters), and Presidential Suite (140 square meters). There will also be dedicated Specially-Abled Suites (up to 34 square meters) for guests needing special room arrangements during their stay. These rooms will feature varying views of the nearby mountains and the nearby Pagdanan Bay.
“We are very excited to introduce our 20th hotel property in our portfolio, and what better destination to host it than in San Vicente, Palawan, which is home to the longest beachline in the country and the second longest in the entire Southeast Asia,” says Cleofe Albiso, managing director, Megaworld Hotels and Resorts.
Paragua Sands Hotel will be just a five-minute walk to both the beach and the mangrove reserve park, which will form part of the sprawling township. It will sit right beside Savoy Hotel Palawan and Oceanfront Premier Residences, the first hotel and residential condominium developments rising inside the township respectively, and surrounded by lots from the soon-to-rise Mercato Shophouse District nearby.
The hotel’s façade will showcase gradient-colored balconies and walls with art murals inspired by modern contemporary art, which will further distinguish Paragua Sands Hotel from all the other surrounding developments.
Entering the grand hotel lobby, guests will be welcomed by interiors characterized by a variety of earth tones and natural elements inspired by the lush and rich surroundings embracing Paragua Coastown. The hues of the floor will reflect some of the most beautiful shades of the fine sands of the beach, which San Vicente is well-regarded for. Local materials, like solihiya and rattan, fused with modern expressions will be used for the furniture, decorative lights, and screens throughout the interiors.
Paragua Sands Hotel will feature a variety of exciting facilities and amenities located at the central amenity area on the second and third floors. These include its own swimming pool and kiddie pool, a pool deck with seating area, an outdoor deck and balconies, a kid’s club, spa with treatment rooms, fitness center with yoga area, and male and female changing rooms with wet and dry sauna.
The hotel will also feature a ballroom that can accommodate up to 220 people, function rooms that can host up to 80 individuals, and meeting rooms that can have up to 66 people. There will also be a business center with four (4) workstations for those who want to squeeze in some work during their stay.
Paragua Sands Hotel will also feature four (4) food and beverage outlets: an all-day dining restaurant with both alfresco and private dining areas, Zabana Bar & Lounge, pool bar and grill with outdoor dining, and a specialty restaurant. There will also be a gift shop and several retail spaces at the ground floor.
Additionally, suite and VIP guests will enjoy exclusive access to the Executive Lounge which offers beverages and hors d’oeuvres all throughout the day, as well as breakfast in the morning.
To be managed and operated by Megaworld Hotels & Resorts, Paragua Sands Hotel is scheduled for opening in 2029. It will be the 20th hotel property launched by Megaworld Hotels and Resorts, the country’s largest operator of homegrown hotel brands. Out of the 20 hotel properties launched, 12 are operational with around 5,000 hotel room keys, namely Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, Savoy Hotel Newport, Savoy Hotel Boracay, Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown, Belmont Hotel Manila, Belmont Hotel Boracay, Belmont Hotel Mactan, Kingsford Hotel Manila, Twin Lakes Hotel in Laurel, Batangas near Tagaytay, and Hotel Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, Manila. ###
