We offer a very basic requirement. Our brand essence is for our rooms to be clean, convenient, comfortable, and safe,” Wipulakorn cited. “We make sure that all of these are consistent to all our clients here and in our upcoming branches in the near future.”

The leading hotel operator in Southeast Asia has allocated around 10 billion Baht, or about P12 billion, for its five-year investment plan aimed at further growing its Hop Inn network in the region.

Thirty percent of that will be in the Philippines,” the Group’s president said of their P3.6 billion capital expenditure to build around 20 three-star hotels nationwide by 2020.
As the leading investors in the hospitality sector in Thailand, The Erawan Group currently operates 41 hotels there, with a total inventory of 6,000-rooms.

“Next year, it’s going to be 50 hotels, including two in the Philippines,” Wipulakorn bared,
referring   to the P200 million-worth Ermita property   and the 190-room  Makati branch the latter now
under construction in preparation for opening in September 2017.

“We have created job with our on going construction already. We will set up an operation team in 
the next few months and the plan is to hire local staff as much as possible as they would understand
customers` requirement and respond well to market,” Wipulakorn said.

Impressed by the positive turnout of the guests following the official opening of the flagship Hop Inn outlet in Manila the Group
has already identified their captive market in  the Philipines.

“In Thailand 85 percent of our  guests are international.  But we have a very good domestic market
As well. So about 15 percent would go to domestic . But I think over here will be more domestic,
maybe 85 percent. So we expect more business travelers here more than leisure guests,” she
pointed out.

Bullish on their first venture overseas, Wipulakorn revealed that they intend to double their target
number of hotels in the next 10 years.

“We also look at maybe investment into the midscale of four-star category in the Philippines,” she
stressed. “I hope that we bring a good quality product to the Philippine market and that we get a
good response. We also want to be a part of the community here.”
