HANN Philippines, Inc. (HPI) is set to open its integrated casino and resort in Clark on Dec. 15.

The company hopes to attract tourists and investors with the soft opening of the Hann Casino Resort, which is described as a “world-class luxury gaming space.”

“Despite the disruption the pandemic caused, our vision of creating the ultimate millionaire’s playground in Clark remains the same. We are set to open the first fully integrated resort in phases, and guests can expect only the finest in hospitality and entertainment,” Daesik Han, president and CEO of HPI, said in a statement.

At the casino’s grand opening, over P15 million worth of prizes, including a BMW X7, will be given away in a “Rev Up to Lux” raffle promo.

Hann Casino Resort is expected to create over a thousand jobs when it fully opens. Its employees undergo regular swab testing and more than 90% are fully vaccinated against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The casino will use air conditioners with high-efficiency filters to provide better air quality.

“With the soft opening of Hann Casino Resort, we aim to attract tourists and investors to the area to help kickstart the Philippines’ economy and revive the tourism industry,” Mr. Han said.

Hann Casino Resort features Hann Casino, Clark Marriott, Swissotel Clark, and in the future, a Mercure Hotel. HPI is a member of the Hann Group, the consortium behind the Widus Hotel & Casino and Clark Marriott.
