Top 3 Reasons to Live or Invest in the only Westin Residential Property in South East Asia

Posted on at

In recent years, a lot of Western luxury branded hotel and residential properties have been coming to the capital of the Philippines. We've had the Shangri-la brand around here way before these Western brands came along but now we have these American brands like the Paris Hilton beach club amenity in a Paranaque City condo, the Trump Towers and the Singapore branded Raffles Residences in Makati City to name a few. It's no wonder that the Westin brand has also come to our shores.

The Residences at The Westin Manila Sonata Place is a mixed-use residential luxury project by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., with Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) as it's licensee and developer.

Licensing deals like these don't happen as often as a franchisee can build a McDonalds in different areas of the Philippines. This kind of licensing most probably involves a lot of risk and trust. John Gokongwei, Jr. being the second richest man in the Philippines and the Chairman of JG Summit Holdings, Inc. might have something to do with the trust given by Starwood.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is an American hotel and leisure company headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. One of the world's largest hotel companies, it owns, operates, franchises and manages hotels, resorts, spas, residences, and vacation ownership properties under its 11 owned brands.

In September 2016, Starwood was acquired by or successfully merged with Marriott International, Inc., a multinational hospitality company, thus making it the world's largest hotel chain.

Under Starwood are different brands of hotels like Westin, W Hotels, Le Meridien and St. Regis to name a few. Aside from owning and managing hotels, resorts and residences, the company also has a guest loyalty program called Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG). This is already available to all hotels under Marriott & Starwood which is definitely a great incentive to frequent flyers. And of course this is extended to would be residents of this pre-selling RLC/Starwood development. Learn more about the benefits in the video below.

Since Westin is under this multinational company, SPG will definitely be accessible to anyone booking in a Westin hotel or living in its residential property. As a new resident at The Residences at The Westin Manila Sonata Place, you will get an SPG Gold Card 5 year membership, which is normally availed via an equivalent of 10 eligible stays or 25 eligible nights at Starwood hotels in a calendar year.
