CLARK FREEPORT – With the soft launch of the first Swissôtel property in Pampanga, the art of Swiss hospitality is making its way to the Philippines.

Swissôtel Clark is a vibrant new location inside the Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone, a two-hour drive from Manila, in this increasingly popular tourist and leisure destination.

During the soft opening phase, 270 Premium and Swiss Advantage Rooms will be available for booking beginning March 1, with the entire hotel complex set to open in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The Swissôtel Clark, with 372 rooms, is the tallest hotel in Northern Metro Manila, with a modern 22-storey building. The hotel puts a modern twist on Swiss design and architectural elements to make it a place where guests can relax.

One of the design features in each room is a statement wall that mimics the pattern of the Swiss Alps. All rooms have an abundance of natural light and magnificent dawn or sunset views, with views of the city and its surrounding rolling hills.

“The Swissôtel brand is internationally renowned for its high standard of Swiss hospitality that is infused with the freshness and vibrancy of alpine energy.

In every detail of the Swissôtel experience, vitality is the key philosophy that focuses on well-being and enjoying a high quality of life. We are delighted to introduce our first Swissôtel property in the Philippines, which will keep the brand’s promise of promoting quality in life. Swissôtel Clark will offer an inspiring atmosphere, complimented by authentic Filipino charm, “said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer of Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.

Perfect for families, leisure, and business travellers, the hotel’s intelligently designed guest rooms, variety of culinary offerings, and exciting facilities make the hotel a destination in and of itself. The hotel will offer a relaxing base for all travellers to explore the very best that Clark has to offer,” said Tarek Auoini, General Manager of Swissôtel Clark.

The Clark Museum, Aqua Planet Water Park, Dinosaur Island, Puning Hot Spring, Mount Arayat National Park, and Walking Street are all within walking distance of the hotel.
