With construction of the Laguindingan Airport project in Misamis Oriental on schedule, the builders of the proposed hotel and beach resort of Club South Pacific Philippines in nearby Gitagum town are now processing all necessary licenses to start the first stage of its development.
The airport at Laguindingan, a town next to Gitagum, is now approaching 50 percent of its completion, with the access roads now completed.
The development of the resort hotel will be in two stages and expected to be operational in 2011-13. Stage one of development will be 118 luxury rooms and is estimated to be completed in the year 2011. The rooms will have an area from 40-, 60-, 64-, 80-, 140- and 160-square meters. There will be high-standard restaurants, lounge, coffee shop, conference rooms, function rooms, spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and aqua sports facilities. Stage two of the project includes development of 350 luxury rooms and is estimated to be completed in 2013. The most exquisite amenities include hotel accommodations, residential condos, swimming pools, conference rooms, convention rooms, function facilities, business center and music rooms. The magnificent design and relaxing view of Marina will highlight the project.
The founder of Club South Pacific Phils. Co., Inc. who happens to be the same person who founded Terrace Downs High Country Resort in New Zealand, will handle the development in Mindanao. And the resort that will be built will become another destination for members.
As soon as the resort hotel gets operational in 2011 it is expected to boost tourism in Mindanao and also in the country as card-bearing members come to enjoy the company’s services.
