MANILA, Philippines – Despite being a major Philippine trading hub with the second busiest airport in Mindanao, Cagayan de Oro City in Misamis Oriental welcomed its first hotel designed to tap global travelers only last December.
Seda Centrio, owned by AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts and the Anflo Group of the Floirendo family, is set to upgrade hospitality standards in this city of family-owned accommodations, the biggest in Region X and the gateway to Mindanao from the rest of the country. Offering a paperless check-in experience with its 150 rooms located over the city’s most premium mall, Seda Centrio in Cagayan de Oro City introduced last December a boutique-hotel setting to this urban center of over 600,000 Cebuano-speaking residents mostly engaged in agriculture and services.
Seda Centrio’s sleek, contemporary lobby designed by Conrad Onglao has drawn positive remarks from residents and travelers alike. The fourth floor lobby connects to a smaller receiving area in the ground floor which provides easy access to the Centrio mall and its spectrum of dining and retail outlets, which they consider a big convenience.
Al Legaspi, chief operating officer of AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts (AHRC) which operates Seda Centrio, disclosed that the brand was developed “to prime opportunities in the country’s dynamic growth centers.” In addition to Seda Centrio in Cagayan de Oro City and the recently launched 179-room Seda Bonifacio Global City, AHRC is set to open Seda Abreeza in Davao City and a fourth Seda hotel in Nuvali in Laguna before the year ends.
Andrea Mastellone, Seda group general manager, observed that because each Seda hotel is a few steps away from an Ayala Land mall, residential and office spaces, each property is marked to be a destination in its city. In Cagayan de Oro and other underserved cities, Seda will further make available to global travelers state-of-the-art technology and the consistent delivery of the personable service associated with Filipinos the world over.
