Accor has announced plans to develop the first Pullman Living and Novotel Living standalone apartments in Manila.

Both properties, developed in partnership with PTC Holdings, are to open in the last quarter of 2022. The Pullman Living Manila will have 200 rooms, whilst the Novotel Living Manila will have 300.

The new properties will be located within the central business district of Mataki in Metro Manila, a short walk from Greenbelt shopping mall and the 'Wall Street of the Philippines', Ayala Avenue.

"Pullman Living provides a stylish and intelligent private sanctuary with re-imagined hospitality experiences including unique dining concepts, the Pullman Porter, seamless and intuitive technology and a bold, vibrant art-led design," said Accor's chief operating officer for Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia and the Maldives, Patrick Bassett.

"Novotel Living brings a co-living experience to the serviced apartment category. Novotel Living is all about making everyday moments matter in a warm, relaxed and friendly environment."

The Pullman Living and Novotel Living brands launched in early 2019, born from Accor's Pullman and Novotel brands.
