Accor's South Palms resort will open its doors next year.
A major new tourist development is set to open in Bohol in the Philippines.
Panglao Shores, overlooking the Mindanao Sea, will kick-off a phased opening with the launch of a resort by international hospitality group Accor next year. The development will fully launch over the next ten years, with the phased opening of attractions including a shopping mall, night market, restaurants, performance areas, international resorts, residential villages and a beach club. Panglao first opened up as a tourist destination in 2018 following the construction of Bohol-Panglao international airport.
The site is currently home to South Palms Resort which will expand under the development.
The 57-hectare development will foster sustainable measures, including a closed-loop water system with rainwater capture and water bottling station, naturally ventilated buildings and zero carbon renewable technologies.
Accor’s second MGallery branded property in the Philippines, the five-star South Palms Resort Panglao Bohol - MGallery, is slated to open in the first half of 2024. The 188-room property is located over six-and-a-half hectares of palm tree-strewn land off the powder-soft beaches of Panglao’s south coast.
South Palms Resort Panglao Bohol - MGallery is ten minutes drive from Bohol-Panglao airport, which has direct flights with Philippines’ capital city, Manila.
Accor is a major hotel operator in the Philippines with ten hotels, resorts and branded residences currently in operation and a further 16 hotels scheduled to open over the next five years.
