“We intend to replicate in CDO what we have successfully started in Cebu and in all other areas where we operate—which is to contribute to the local economy and further boost the region’s tourism sector. We will be able to do this while we remain truthful to our commitment to elevate the living standards in the areas where we operate. This time, in CDO, and it is our pride to be the one to open the first 5-star hotel and residences in the city,” Manigsaca said.

Additionally, international interest, such as Malaysia’s consideration of increasing flights to Mindanao, underscores the region’s potential.

“Our values align as we share a mutual vision for elevating hospitality standards in the country. This further shows our dedication to establishing lasting partnerships, and enhancing VisMin regions’ appeal for tourists and stakeholder investors,” said Manigsaca.
