The unique commingling of civilisations, personalities and natural forces that shaped the Philippines’ colonial era remains encapsulated in the architecture and social fabric of the coastal city of Vigan. Rooted in the history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and contributing to its cultural richness is Hotel Luna, a new member hotel of Worldhotels.
As the only museum hotel in its country, the recently opened Hotel Luna occupies a majestic residence built in 1882 by the affluent Don Jose Florentino as a wedding gift to his daughter. Now completely restored, the hotel is an exquisite blend of colonial artistry and contemporary style. Stone staircases, opera balconies, a glass lift shaft and a resplendent 20-foot mural, along with some of the most exclusively curated artworks, complement the unique experience this heritage hotel affords.
“We are very proud to build on the existing partnership with ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc (AHMGI), the highly competent organisation that owns and manages Hotel Luna and Baguio City’s Le Monet, also an affiliate of Worldhotels,” remarked Roland Jegge, Worldhotels Executive Vice President Asia Pacific.
“The induction of Hotel Luna continues to expand the diversity of our curated collection of top-notch hotels in the region, and Worldhotels’ integrated global distribution network and sales and marketing forces will propel Hotel Luna forward in setting the benchmark for hotels in the country, ” added Jegge.
“Hotel Luna is very much honoured and excited about this new partnership,” said AHMGI’s Chief Marketing Officer, Ari C. Singson. “AHMGI’s aim is to deliver guest experiences that embody Gracious Hosting in every aspect – from the most luxurious and innovative accommodations to the gourmet offerings and dedicated services. This partnership between Worldhotels and AHMGI will open new doors for the group and Hotel Luna alike. We believe this is the time for the world to witness how AHMGI and its properties pave the way for change in the Filipino Hospitality industry.”
