Resorts World Manila to See 3 Million Customers By End of 2015
- August 25, 2015 By Nemanja L. -
Travellers International Hotel Group has very ambitious plans for its Resorts World Manila complex, the company representatives have moved to confirm.
The Travellers chiefs believe that RWM’s member base will go past the 3 million mark by the end of the current year as numerous expansions are planned.
Resorts World Manila currently has a strong base of 2.7 million members and the figure is expected to increase further in the coming months as the gaming company plans improvements to both gaming and non-gaming establishments.
RWM corporate communications director, Owen Cammayo, has revealed that the main objective is not only to improve the gaming sector, but also turn the resort into a family destination.
RWM to Build Three More Hotels
The hotel capacity will be seriously increased, from 1,226 rooms to nearly 4,200 rooms over the next four years as Marriott and Maxim Hotels are set for expansions and Hilton Manila Hotel, Sheraton Hotel Manila and Belmont Hotel will be built from scratch.
A 4,000-capacity Marriott Hotel Ballroom was recently launched by the RWM, and they clearly aim to roll out a number of new establishments in the coming years and profit from the recent uptrend in fortunes and strong results from both gaming and non-gaming sectors.
Travellers Enjoy Impressive Results in First Half of 2015
Travellers International Hotel Group has announced net profit of P2.4 billion ($51.39 million), resulting from gross revenue of P14.2 billion ($304.1 million) for the first six months of the current year, with gaming revenues contributing P12.5 billion ($267.7 million) of gross revenues.
The gaming company saw some 19,718 visitors per day on average or a 5.5% increase on the same period in 2014, which is a great result if we take into account a number of holidays that fell during said period and traffic jams caused by ongoing construction work.
There were more good news for RWM chiefs as their hotels Maxims, Remington and Marriott had an average occupancy rate of impressive 86 per cent in the first six months of 2015.
Resorts World Manila clearly has very ambitious plans for the period of next few years and these include improvements in the non-VIP sector, attracting more international visitors and further improving the non-gaming revenue.
