Robinsons Land opens Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu
Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) has opened the Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu, its first foray into the luxury resort niche.
Owned by RLC and managed by Thailand’s Dusit International, the five-star beachfront resort is at the northwestern tip of Mactan Island.
“Teaming up with Dusit International, a well-established international brand, is a step in the proper direction for the company,” says Arthur Gindap, senior vice president and Business Unit general manager of Robinsons Hotels and Resorts.
Some 11 kilometers from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the resort hotel is putting the finishing touches on its exclusive water transfer service, says David Baldwin, the resort’s general manager.
Cebu is becoming known as a prime destination for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) .
With its complete facilities, Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu is poised to become a top venue.
RLC’s other developments in Cebu include malls, office projects, residential buildings, subdivisions, and two other hotels.
The EON Group wins
Filipino communications consultancy group The EON Group was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award for Most Innovative Public Relations Agency of the Year, and a Silver Stevie Award for Excellence in Innovation in Business Product and Service Industries in the sixth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.
More than 900 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year for various categories, and the EON Group won both Gold and Silver in two different categories that recognize best practices on innovation.
“The communications industry is in the midst of a massive disruption, and the move to differentiate ourselves and focus on higher value services is the only logical way forward,” says Mori Rodriguez, EON’s chief innovation officer.
“Innovation is a corporate value and we live it in all aspects of the business, from product all the way to talent development,” Rodriguez adds.
While this is EON’s first win at the Stevie Awards, the communications consultancy has been recognized for its innovation by Enterprise Asia, winning an International Innovation Award for Organization and Culture in 2017. Among its list of recent accomplishments is the prestigious International Gold Quill Award in 2018 for the Philippine Trust Index, the company’s proprietary research that looks into the levels and drivers of trust among Filipinos, and Public Affairs Asia’s Gold Standard Award for Public Affairs Consultancy of the Year in 2018.
