Joining the SmartOtels’ growing portfolio of represented hotels and resorts is the Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines – a sizeable luxury resort in the centre of the island of Palawan which fronts onto the white sand Sabang Beach and lies a short distance from the Subterranean River – one of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites on Palawan and the longest navigable underground river in the world.
Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa has a complete range of facilities to provide the perfect tropical island holiday with its own 340′ pool (largest on Palawan) onto which many of the rooms and suites face with their own private balconies. Other rooms and suites face the impressive mountain range behind or the colourful gardens.
Palawan is a centre of eco-tourism and sustainable tourism and this is reflected around Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa in many ways – from the organic food served in the resort’s main restaurant, much of which comes from their own organic farm to the tours available to guests which, aside from the Subterranean River Tour include a Jungle Trail through lush green rainforest – a chance to get amongst the many species native to the island and appreciate the lives of the residents of this island, rich in natural resources.
Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa has many other facilities to attract clients of SmartOtels including 3 bars and cafes, an excellent range of rooms and suites, extensive facilities for Meetings and Events and the ability to host exceptional exotic overseas weddings and honeymoons. SmartOtels is providing a unique service amongst UK sales representatives to give a liason point in London between wedding and event organisers and the resort’s own team. The resort also includes a Spa based on holistic concepts of health and beauty traditions from S.E. Asia, blended with a touch of modern trends in well-being for physical and spiritual beauty.
Matthew Brooks, co-founder and CEO of SmartOtels said: “Given my own close personal ties to the Philippines and my frequent visits there, it is a real pleasure to be able to announce the addition of Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa as an early client in our rapidly growing of portfolio of hotels and resorts we will represent for sales and marketing in the UK and Europe. Tourism from these markets to the Philippines is growing rapidly and SmartOtels is firmly committed to helping to grow that further and aid the country’s economy recovery from recent events. Growth in tourism and business will be further helped by Philippines Airlines recent launch of direct flights from the UK.”
Jacqueline C. Tan, Managing Director, Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa said: “We have high expectations from our business relationship with SmartOtels and we feel confident that Joaquin Cababie and Matthew Brooks, who I have met, can deliver. We were delighted to find a representative who already knows the Philippines well, has a thorough hotel and travel background and, so, understands our business and our needs well. We look forward to welcoming many more guests from the UK and Europe in the months ahead as a result of SmartOtels’ efforts.”
