Scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2016, Mövenpick Resort Boracay is the second Mövenpick branded property in the Philippines, after the 245-room contemporary-styled Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.

"We are delighted to welcome Stefan to our growing team in the Philippines," said Andrew Langdon, Senior Vice President of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Asia. "He is a high-calibre hotelier and very well-versed in Mövenpick's upscale hospitality attributes, which I am sure will continue to be well received as we grow our brand in the Philippines with the upcoming opening of our second property."

Swiss-national Stefan Keel, who speaks four languages, has worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

He started his career as a hotel management trainee with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in 1995 and over nine years worked at Mövenpick hotels in Zurich, Switzerland, El Gouna, Egypt and Aqaba, Jordan. He has also worked for hospitality brands Almapura, Swiss Inn, Rezidor and Ramada.

"I am very excited to be given the opportunity to launch a property of such enormous potential and with so many unique characteristics," said Mr Keel.

"Movenpick Resort Boracay is a low-rise resort, leaving a light footprint on the environment, while embracing the beauty of the stunning private cove setting, which is perfect for weddings, romantic occasions and families.

"We are looking forward to showcasing the property, our Swiss standards, unique brand characteristics such as Go Healthy, Chocolate Hour and Power Bites, and the destination itself to domestic and international visitors."

The 333-room Mövenpick Resort Boracay is located in the northwest area of Boracay island, on the idyllic Punta Bunga Beach, famed for its powdery white sand, breathtaking sunsets and aquamarine waters. It comprises a village community-style cluster of nine low-rise buildings that blend seamlessly with the natural environment nestled around a multi-level lagoon pool.

Movenpick Resort Boracay will be the second Mövenpick hotel in the Philippines as the Swiss hospitality management company expands in the country. For high resolution version, click here.

Key features include eight innovative restaurant concepts with Italian, Japanese and Korean outlets and intimate beachfront private dining spaces, plus an organic garden from where Mövenpick's chefs will source the freshest and healthiest ingredients.

Meanwhile, the beach lifestyle will be celebrated to the full at Mövenpick's Beach Club, featuring music and entertainment, while a wellness centre with six treatment rooms, including a dedicated couples' room, a full range of fitness care programmes including yoga, tai chi and aqua aerobics, and a water sports centre will cater to an extensive range of activities.

Children will be well taken care of too, through a spacious Kids' Club, offering fun and learning activities, as well as a kids' check-in area, special in-room amenities and outdoor activities.
