Authentic Filipino Style in Five-Star Suites Hotel
Vivere Suites has carved out a niche for itself in the local five-star hotel sector by offering a winning combination of authentic Filipino style with world-class amenities and services. It was not easy for Vivere Suites to make a name for itself in a market dominated by global brands, but, as Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon, General Manager puts it, “We make use of Filipino materials and emphasize Filipino culture. This makes us unique, very different from standardized international hotels.”
In fact, Vivere Suites is the only five-star hotel in the Philippines with a 100% Filipino staff. “We have faith in Filipino talent and expertise, and every part of our hotel has the Filipino touch,” Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon says proudly.
Vivere Suites draws guests from all over the world, especially Europe and the US. Most of them are executive travelers attracted to Vivere Suites’ special style, fully equipped luxury suites and many business-oriented facilities, including a business center and an executive lounge with a special dining area.
In addition, the hotel’s staff members are well trained in providing the kind of world-class service international executives demand. Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon says, “Service is our competitive edge. If we say we will deliver something in 10 minutes, we try to deliver it faster than that, because we are usually serving business people on a schedule. For this reason alone, we have a lot of corporate customers.” The hotel’s location in the booming Alabong area is another advantage.
Vivere Suites actively supports the efforts of the Philippines’ Department of Tourism, including the ‘It’s more fun in the Philippines’ international marketing campaign. Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon says, “The Philippines is the place to be, and I believe that the Filipino people are this country’s main asset. When visitors come here, we welcome them to stay in our 100% Filipino luxury hotel.”
