Baguio City, Philippines

Filinvest Hospitality Corporation (FHC) formally topped-off its latest hotel development, Grafik Hotel Collection, located within Camp John Hay. This marks the official launch of FHC’s Grafik Hotel Collection, a new line of hotels aiming to deliver guest experiences that will inspire stories about Filipino culture and heritage. The project is in partnership with the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and John Hay Management Corporation

With a total investment of PHP2.7Bn, the Grafik Hotel Collection Baguio will offer 256 upscale accommodations, five food & beverage outlets, a grand ballroom, meeting spaces and a spa. FHC targets to open the hotel in the first
quarter of 2025. “The Grafik Hotel Collection is poised to make a significant impact on the local economy. By creating numerous employment opportunities, we aim to engage and uplift the community,” said Francis Gotianun, First Senior Vice President, Filinvest Hospitality Corporation.

“Our project will not only boost tourism but also foster a sense of pride and involvement among the residents of Baguio. We are committed to contributing to the city’s growth and prosperity.” “The BCDA welcomes the
establishment of FHC’s new hotel, as this will enhance Camp John Hay’s position as a leading tourist haven and hub for leisure and business. This is an excellent addition to the worldclass hotels lining up Camp John Hay, and we hope this entices more tourists to choose John Hay as their next destination,” BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Joshua M. Bingcang said.

Catering to both domestic and international travelers, the new hotel will support local businesses and contribute to the overall economic growth of Baguio City. The project has generated approximately 3,000 jobs during its construction phase and will hire around 250- 300 employees when it becomes operational. “The Grafik Hotel is set to significantly boost the revenue for the John Hay Special Economic Zone by attracting a larger number of tourists. It will play a key role in job creation, balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability.

I am confident that through our collective efforts, we can transform Camp John Hay into a model of sustainable tourism and community development, setting a precedent for others to follow,” said JHMC President and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Marlo Ignacio V. Quadra. The Grafik Hotel Collection aims to bring the world to the
Philippines and to take the Philippines to the world, pioneering new paths in Filipino hospitality through fresh
perspectives and unforgettable experiences. The core purpose of the brand is to transform explorers into storytellers.
