With just a week to go until Hann Casino Resort in Clark, Philippines opens with a soft launch, we take a look at what to expect from this brand-new ‘ultimate millionaire’s playground’.
Despite delays caused by the pandemic, the ambitious project, which is set to open in phases and at a total expected cost of US$ 247 million, is almost ready to be revealed to the public, and guests can expect quite the experience when they visit. Much like the array of other lavish casino resorts that are popping up all over the world, this is one is no exception with an ambitious set of experiences set to be available to visitors to this part of the world.
Formerly the Widas Hotel and Casino in Clark Freeport Zone, the area is being given quite the facelift in order to draw in affluent crowds looking for the ultimate escape, with the total project being given a final estimate of around US$1 billion alongside another expansion project in New Clark City Tarlac and up to 1,000 jobs being created once this resort is complete.
With such a huge undertaking and hefty budget, we talked to a spokesperson at top10-casinosites.net, the leading destination for the most up-to-date online casino bonus for their opinion on just why these new resorts are going so big and bold.
They said: “I think any savvy businessperson will see just how much money there is to be made in the entertainment industry and those big resorts of the likes of Las Vegas and Macau will certainly be inspiring to those looking to draw in tourism, create jobs and boost the economy, while simultaneously providing an entertainment hub that can be enjoyed for years to come. Everyone needs a little escapism in their lives, and the bigger the resort and the more lavish, the more likely it is that those affluents guests are to part with their cash.”
The vision of the president and CEO of the Hann Development Corporation, Daesik Han, is to offer a world-class leisure and lifestyle destination that perfectly showcases the global Filipino lifestyle and culture that also marries well with the range of international brands that are joining forces with the development.
Han said: “We remain committed to our vision of raising the concept of play into a lifestyle that people would want to discover through world-class experiences. With the soft opening of Hann Casino Resort, we aim to attract tourists and investors to the area to help kickstart the Philippines’ economy and revive the tourism industry.” (as quoted by various local media outlets)
So, what can visitors to this casino resort expect to find when they take the trip?
Phase one of the expansion project will see 130,000 square metres of space covered, which includes the ‘world-class gaming space’, 19 floors of hotel space, totalling 380 rooms, a range of dining experiences, executive lounge, function rooms for those big events, retail stores and more.
When the project is complete visitors should expect to find plenty of further exciting entertainment options both indoor and out across the two neighbouring sites – Hann Casino Resort and Hann Lux Luxury Resort – including golf across its three planned 18-hole championship golf courses and wide selection of pool and spa facilities from the luxurious hotels that are part of the plans.
Big name hospitality brands that are setting up shop across the two sites include Banyan Tree Hotel and Angsana Hotel, Mercure, The Luxury Collection by Marriott International and Swisshotel Hotels and Resorts, with the two latter properties located at the Hann Casino Resort. Anyone who has stayed at hotels or villas under the above names will know just how seriously they take customer care, with the amenities in each promising to only add to the visitor experience.
The casino itself looks set to offer quite the experience with lavish décor, an exclusive VIP gaming room and plenty of options to keep those who are keen to have a flutter busy, and as it is currently the only planned casino across the whole expansion, we are sure that the experiences inside will be rather impressive. Add to that the fact that the facility will be well air-conditioned with high-efficiency filters to enhance air quality for reassurance on Covid, and staff are regularly tested with 90 per cent of employees said to be vaccinated and guests can rest assured that their experience will be a safe and pleasurable one.
