Midori Hotel and Casino — a P4-billion 5-star resorts complex formally opened at the Clark Freeport Zone over the week.
This, as Midori Hotel and Casino former president Ireneo “Bong” Alvaro who led the soft opening on July 1, also announced phase one development of the P2-billion water theme park will be completed in 2017.
Alvaro named the water theme park project as “Clark Aqua World.” He added that some 80 40-footer container vans containing imported items have already arrived, which will be used for the first phase of the water theme park project.
The multi-billion Midori Hotel, is the first world-class five-star hotel to be established in Central and North Luzon.
The hotel and casino alone has a total area of 9,900 square meters. The hotel complex is characterized by simplicity yet sophisticated style from inside and outside, making it the best holiday destination.
Midori Clark Hotel and Casino features two independent structures linked with a sky bridge on level 2. One building serves as the hotel site while the other serves as the casino site. Such design is aimed to provide a holiday-making venue as well as a leisure and entertainment complex, creating a one-stop service with diversified options for discerning guests no matter if they are locals or traveling to the Philippines.
Hotel Midori has 110 luxury rooms, 19 suites, and standard rooms that will have minimum of 40-square meter floor area in a 2.4-hectare property. Alvaro said that his group of investors poured in some $100 million for the entire Midori project in Clark.
However, as of its soft opening last week, P4 billion has already been poured in this project.
Midori offers airport limousine service such as express check-in/check-out service, free shuttle service to SM Clark Mall (scheduled), city tour arrangement service, complimentary fruits and delicate snacks, wedding banquet and conference services, business center, high-speed and wireless internet access.
The hotel also offers food and beverage reservations hotline, laundry and valet services, safety deposit boxes, 88 parking space on B1/ Valet parking service, in-house clinic, foreign currency exchange, babysitting service, 24-hour concierge service, and five wheelchair accessible guest rooms with special support in the bathtubs and toilets.
Alvaro said that aside from the iconic structural design, the hotel will have bigger than usual hotel rooms, convention center, swimming pools, restaurants, and other amenities that local and foreign tourists will enjoy during their visit.
The hotel structure has been completed on time but the (recent) port congestion problem has made a huge toil on the completion of the project, Alvaro said.
Alvaro, who is also the president of the BB International Leisure Resort Development Corporation, said the implementation of the masterplan for the water theme park near Midori is on schedule as part of the firm’s commitment to complete its facilities.
“We have a legal obligation to finish the theme park in 2017 because we deposited $500,000 to CDC. If we fail to finish it on time, the money will be forfeited,” he said. This is on top of the $5.5 million that we paid in advance, Alvaro said earlier.
