General Santos City (or GenSan) in South Cotabato is dubbed as the "Tuna Capital of the Philippines." But it is so much more than its seafood restaurants and booming fishing industry.

Whether you're flying to GenSan for leisure or for business, you're now guaranteed a luxurious stay at the newly opened four-star Grand Summit Hotel. Soft opening was held on October 13, and it's expected to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2022.
