It all started with one man's simple idea of building his own resort in the island paradise of Boracay where his family and friends can enjoy a hassle-free vacation. Fast forward to the present day, that same idea has materialized as a world-class company, and whose name is synonymous to great accommodations, excellent service and value for money. "When I first visited Boracay, it was love at first sight; I fell in love with the island right away," said Henry Chusuey, chairman of the Henann Group of Resorts. The island's powdery white sand beaches and crystal clear waters definitely left a special place in Chusuey's heart. These captivating qualities of Boracay made the visionary businessman realize that the island had the potential to be a prime tourist destination. Banking on this realization, Chusuey opened his own resort in the island, the Boracay Regency Beach Resort. Boracay Regency started out with 43 rooms, a swimming pool, a restaurant and 65 employees trained according to international standards. The resort focused on offering quality accommodations and facilities at a very reasonable rate, thus attracting more and more patrons. Even at this early stage, the resort showed excellence in its performance as it was the first resort at the long beach to receive the highest resort rating from the Department of Tourism. To date, Boracay Regency Beach Resort & Spa has 302 rooms, almost seven times bigger than its original 43 rooms. With Boracay becoming a more well-known tourist destination here and abroad, it is not surprising that new resorts were being built in the island while the other resorts started upgrading. "During the expansion of Boracay Regency, competition in the island also grew; but we do not let them catch up," said Chusuey. So in 2009, the company joined the bandwagon by acquiring its neighboring Korean-owned Hotel Seraph and named it Boracay Garden Resort. Four months after the acquisition, the company opened its third venture in the island, the Regency Lagoon Resort. Fifteen years since Boracay Regency's inception, Henann Group of Resorts continues to add new members to its growing family. As such, construction of a 100-room beachfront resort in Station 1, the former Chalet Tirol, will start in a few months. Following that, another 180-room beachfront resort at the area of Boracay Beach Chalets will be constructed. There will be more than 1,000 rooms across the properties in Boracay. The expansion of Henann Group of Resorts will also cover two new emerging tourist destinations in the country - Panglao, Bohol and Coron, Palawan. On 2014, the company will open the biggest resort in Panglao Island, Bohol the Henann Resort, Alona Beach, situated in a 6.5 hectare property surrounded with lush gardens and the longest stretch of white sand in Panglao's Alona Beach. The resort will feature 400 world-class designed rooms, three massive swimming pools, a convention center, a luxury spa and dining and entertainment venues. For those traveling to Coron, Malcapuya Island will be the home of the planned Henann Resort Malcapuya - a 13.5 hectare, all-villa resort being designed by well-renowned architect, Jun Palafox, and will be one of the best high-end resorts in the country. By the year 2015, Henann Group of Resorts will have a total of 1,500 rooms under its management. Our customers are always our priority.
