/ 11:08 AM May 24, 2022

Envisioned to provide a truly distinct Filipino luxury experience, Fili Hotel is set to highlight the global charm of Filipino hospitality anchored on traits that are genuine expressions of the Filipino culture. 

Fili will be one of the three hotel properties to welcome guests in the soon-to-open NUSTAR Resort and Casino, the first and only Integrated Resort outside of Luzon located in the picturesque Kawit Island in Cebu’s South Road Properties. 

Fili will be under the direction of General Manager Paul Rene Lee whose years of extensive experience in global hospitality management will serve as a solid foundation for a progressive Filipino luxury hotel.

Mr. Lee has more than 30 years’ experience in hotel & luxury resort operations & pre-openings,  business expansion, and has successfully completed strategy and business model refinement for several  luxury resort chains. He has a rich valuable work experience in global locations including USA, China,  Hong Kong & Macau, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and North America. From his deep exposure in dealing with diverse hospitality cultures, Paul has then cultivated a cross-cultural perspective in hospitality management. 

Now overseeing a new 5-star hotel brand in the Philippines, Paul’s direction is expected to be anchored on the Philippine cultural heritage. “Fili will embrace the core traits of Filipino culture. The Philippines is globally known for its people’s warmth and friendliness and we want to harness that atmosphere when guests come and visit”. 

Striving to foster a uniquely Filipino service culture that’s founded on showing the pride and joy of Filipino hospitality, the hotel will be positioned as a paragon of the iconic Filipino warmth where distinct Filipino luxury is experienced through Fili’s service, spaces, and senses. 

In its opening, Fili will boast of over 300 rooms and suites ranging from deluxe kings, presidential suites and villas that are hinged on elegant comfort. All rooms are spacious, characterized by contemporary Filipino décor, and have a stunning view of the sea, Cebu’s magnificent mountains, and the brimming city skyline. 

The Fili experience extends to the restaurants of the hotel and the property. Guests will be taken on a culinary journey of the region by Filipino chefs and serviced by warm Filipino associates in the Fili Lobby Lounge and Fili Cafe. The dining spaces are adorned with Filipino accents and elements celebrating Filipino craftsmanship. Management and staff of Fili invite everyone to celebrate the finest leisure experience in the Philippines by visiting and discovering the pride and joy of a truly world-class Filipino hotel.
