• Cebu Landmasters signs deal with Ascott

      Cebu Landmasters Inc. (CLI), the leading VisMin-based housing developer, has formed a strategic alliance with The Ascott Limited (Ascott) to build more serviced-residences in the region and serve its growing tourism market.

      The partnership would double CLI's number of apartment units under Ascott’s award-winning brands from 804 to 1,600 by 2022.

      “We are happy with our partnership with Ascott as we increase our hospitality portfolio and expand to key cities in the Visayas and Mindanao," said CLI Chief Executive Officer Jose Soberano III after the signing of the memorandum of understanding at The Ascott Makati in Makati City. "Ascott’s expertise in the hospitality business is a good counterpart for our familiarity with the VisMin market.”

      Kevin Goh, Chief Executive Officer, The Ascott Limited, said: “Ascott’s alliance with CLI in the Philippines builds on the strategic partnerships we have forged around the world to accelerate Ascott’s growth globally. Leveraging Ascott’s global network and strong hospitality expertise, as well as CLI’s well-established reputation in the Philippines, the partnership will allow us to gain access to a pipeline of quality projects in the country. This will fast-track our expansion and strengthen Ascott’s leadership position as the largest international hospitality player in the Philippines. Having leading industry players choose to partner with Ascott speaks volumes about the value we bring to our partners. We are confident that Ascott will exceed 80,000 units in 2018 and expand to 160,000 units worldwide by 2023.”

      To date CLI, the leading VisMin- based housing developer for both horizontal and vertical developments according to Santos Knight Frank, has a total portfolio of 969 rooms.
