The art of Swiss hospitality is arriving in the Philippines with the soft opening of the first Swissôtel property in Pampanga. Situated in the Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone, Swissôtel Clark is a vibrant new destination within this increasingly popular tourism locale, a two-hour drive from Manila. As of March 1, 270 Premium and Swiss Advantage Rooms will be available for booking during the soft opening period, with the broader hotel complex launching in the last quarter of 2022.
Situated in a contemporary 22-storey building, the 372 room Swissôtel Clark is the tallest hotel in the Northern Metro Manila region. The hotel incorporates a modern take on Swiss design elements and architectural touches, resulting in a space where guests feel at ease while they recharge. A statement wall reflecting the pattern of the Swiss Alps is one of the design highlights in each room. Overlooking the city and its surrounding rolling hills, all rooms feature plenty of natural light, with dramatic sunrise or sunset views.
“The Swissôtel brand is internationally renowned for its high standard of Swiss hospitality that is infused with the freshness and vibrancy of alpine energy.

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
