Richard Lim, president and chief executive officer of Sunland Development Corporation (SDC), gave a glimpse of what’s to come as work begins on the new addition to their growing hotel chain.
He, who dreams of adding a hotel every six months, said SDC’s biggest, luxurious and most elaborate project — Red Hotel Suites — is located along Marcos Highway in Marikina City. This new hotel is just a stone-throw away from malls and just a few kilometers from various tourist attractions in different Rizal provinces. It is scheduled to open by fourth quarter of 2019.
SDC celebrated the start of construction for Red Hotel Suites with Richard Lim; Simon Tan, vice president for Operations for Sunland; Dr. How Din Lam, Ponchie Santos, executive assistant/officer-in-charge Tourism Office; Joni Jocson, executive assistant, Marikina City; Judge Felix P. Reyes, architect Don Lino, Kevin Richard Lim, David Cayetano and engineer Ruel de Luna, during the ground-breaking ceremony held last 22 July.
“This is Red Hotel Suites’ third branch and by far the biggest. It is expected to become a game-changer on the eastern side of Metro Manila,” said Lim, who reveals that red is his lucky color, during an interview. The other branches are in Cubao, Quezon City and EDSA, Pasay City.
Lim added: “Everyone is welcome at Red Hotel Suites, especially those from Antipolo or Tanay, Rizal. You don’t have to go to Makati or Quezon City just to enjoy the facilities of a luxury hotel. Enjoy our complete facilities at Red Hotel Suites along Marcos Highway, Marikina City.”
The 21-storey hotel will have 250 rooms, an infinity pool at the top, bar, gym, sauna, swimming pool, four-floor parking area, big function rooms and restaurants.
The rooms and suites will be simple and refined but elegant. They will feature clean-lined, modern furniture with wood, marble and quality fabrics that lend a relaxed air.
The group is scheduled to develop more projects soon as Red Hotel Suites will be built on Roxas Boulevard, North Edsa, Malate, Coron, Palawan, Davao, Cebu and other key cities.
