Summit Hotels and Resorts opens its fifth property in the heart of Tacloban City, Leyte this 2018. Summit Hotel Tacloban joins four other leisure resorts in the Philippines bearing the upscale hospitality brand of Robinsons Land Corporation—Summit Circle Cebu, Summit Ridge Tagaytay, Summit Hotel Magnolia, and Summit Galleria Cebu—in serving the intrepid and stylish traveler.




Super Room

The hotel has a total of 138 rooms, all exuding a tropical Filipino vibe with the neutral hues, natural wood, and native stone in its finishes. To highlight Tacloban City's reputation as the gateway to the various sights and adventures in Eastern Visayas, the reception area features wooden arches for welcoming guests. Basket-weave and coconut-leaf patterns are also found all over the hotel to emphasize its paradise vibe.

Pintados Suite

Like Summit Galleria Cebu's cultural-themed suites, Summit Hotel Tacloban's six guest suites with three different styles also echo the various celebrations in Eastern Visayas. The first is Sangyaw, which is named after the religious and socio-cultural festival that culminates with a colorful parade of lights. The second is Lubi-Lubi, which is inspired by the indigenous street parade that celebrates the city's abundant coco plants and materials. The third is Pintados, which describes the native Visayan tribes who tattoo their whole body as a symbol of nobility and bravery.

"The design takes inspiration from Region Eightâs colorful history, [and is] a commemoration of the promising future brought about by the abundance of its natural resources and the warmth of its people despite past trials," said Summit Hotel Tacloban's architect Albert Yu of Asya Design.

With the opening of this luxury hotel, it's only a matter of time before Tacloban City's tourism hotspots go back to its former glory.
