Robinsons mall, hotel to open in Butuan City in 2013


MANILA, Philippines—Robinsons Land Corp. is expanding in Mindanao and is building a new shopping mall in Butuan City with a 100-room budget hotel on its top floors.

RLC announced on Wednesday that it had started the construction of Robinsons Place Butuan with Go Hotel in Butuan, which should be completed by the third quarter of 2013. The five-story building, which will contain both the mall and the budget hotel, will have a gross floor area of 45,300 square meters.

Situated at the major thoroughfare of J. C. Aquino Avenue in Barangay (village) Bayanihan, Robinsons Place Butuan is RLC’s fourth mall in the region. It is envisioned to be the premiere shopping mall in Agusan del Norte. It will feature popular shops and restaurants, a wide array of service establishments, a food court featuring the dishes of the region, and four digital cinemas including the first 3D cinema in the province.

The upcoming mall will be anchored by Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Department Store, Handyman, Robinsons Appliances and a Robinsons Bank branch.

“Butuan is a progressive city that is increasingly becoming the commercial and business hub of northeastern Mindanao. We are glad to be part of its development through this project that will surely generate thousands of employment and attract even more investments into the city,” said Arlene Magtibay, general manager of RLC’s commercial centers division.

Atop the shopping mall building will be the budget Go Hotel, RLC’s value hotel chain that now has five branches across the country.

Operating under the motto “A place for every Juan,” the RLC’s growing Go Hotel chain offers clean, affordable, secure and strategically located but no-frills hotel rooms, mostly through online booking at gohotels.ph.

Pricing is variable, similar to the system used by RLC’s affiliate airline Cebu Pacific, in which the rate is cheaper the earlier a client books. The price of a room per night could be as low as P388 and as high as P2,088 plus value added tax.

The Go Hotel Butuan’s 100 rooms will all be equipped with amenities such as Windsor beds, rainshowers, flat-screen TV and WiFi connection.

“Go Hotel Butuan will cater to both business and leisure travelers. By making available the most important hotel room features that customers look for, and combining these with our pocket-friendly rates, people traveling to Butuan can look forward to a more convenient and pleasurable experience,” said Elizabeth Gregorio, Go Hotels’ general manager.
