Hotel 101-Cebu Mactan Airport, touted as the biggest airport hotel in the Visayas and Mindanao upon its completion, has been fully sold out, DoubleDragon Corp. announced.

The hotel is being constructed by DoubleDragon subsidiary Hotel of Asia, Inc. on a half-hectare property near Mactan Marina Mall along the Mactan Airport Road in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

It will have 548 rooms, DoubleDragon said in a disclosure Wednesday, June 7, 2023. It will also be the first Hotel101 project to adopt the new global version of the hotel’s 21-sqm standardized signature HappyRoom.

It will be one of the most technologically advanced hotel chains as the next version of the Hotel101 App is set to integrate the fully automated self-check-in system with IOT (Internet Of Things) capability.

In its statement, DoubleDragon said Hotel 101-Cebu Mactan Airport was fully sold out 21 months after pre-selling started and more than a year ahead of its target completion date.

“Having just fully sold out the 548-room Hotel101-Cebu Mactan Airport project, and having fully sold out the first two Metro Manila Hotel101 projects — the 606-room Hotel101–Fort and 518-room Hotel101–Manila — we are excited to very soon announce the start of our third Hotel101 project in Metro Manila and first in Quezon City, the 745-room Hotel101-Libis Bridgetowne on E. Rodriguez Avenue, Libis Quezon City,” DoubleDragon chief investment officer Hannah Yulo-Luccini said.

The new Hotel101 global look has been designed for construction and operational efficiency, optimizing the use of modular furniture and fixtures and prefabricated bathrooms.

Hotel101 has chosen the banig, a handwoven mat, for its signature look. Its colors were carefully chosen to radiate happiness and evoke a Filipino touch in all Hotel101 projects across different countries worldwide.

The banig look was designed by AI to manifest that Hotel101 will always stay ahead of the curve in technological advances.

“Hotel101 Global has spent several months putting together the most ideal hotel room. We have meticulously gone over each and every detail of the new signature 1 SKU Hotel101 HappyRoom to ensure that it can become the most efficient hotel room to build and maintain while fulfilling every essential need to delight the growing number of Hotel101 customers from various parts of the world,” DoubleDragon and Hotel101 Global chairman Edgar Injap Sia II said in the same statement.

“If there is one hotel chain that can optimize the use of modern technology in the global hospitality space, we believe it will be Hotel101, given its pioneering standardized signature 21-sqm HappyRooms and asset-light concept globally. Eventually, when you stay in any Hotel101, no matter what country you are in, for the first time you will know exactly what to expect,” he added.

As previously disclosed, Hotel101’s pipeline of inventory from secured prime-titled land sites in Cebu, Libis, Boracay, Palawan and Bohol is expected to generate P18.14 billion in revenues, excluding the dollar revenues to be generated from the Hotel101 overseas projects.

The Asset Light Hotel 101 concept allows DoubleDragon to generate revenue and income twice from the pre-selling of the Happy Rooms and hotel operations. (MVI/Ventures Cebu)
