Thunderbird Resorts to spend $60M on Philippines hotel expansions

Thunderbird Resorts Philippines is earmarking approximately $60 million to expand its hotels in La Union and Rizal province by building more rooms, villas and other amenities that will turn the facilities into mixed-use developments.

The company allocated $30 million to its resort-casino property in San Fernando City,  La Union where 200 rooms will be added. Thunderbird Poro Point hotel GM Marvin Lanuza said the La Union property is anticipating an upgrade this year as the construction of a 29-room condo-hotel is expected to be finished by the middle of 2014.

Currently, the La Union property has 32 rooms, four suites and a villa.
