It brings to life the idea of a “millionaire’s playground” where discerning guests can “Play Bold. Live Bold.”
The all-new integrated lifestyle resort features Hann Casino, Clark Marriott, Swissotel Clark, and, in a few years, Mercure Hotel.

We are set to open Clark’s first fully integrated resort, and our guests can expect only the finest in hospitality and entertainment,” said Daesik Han, chairman and CEO, Hann Philippines Inc. (HPI).
Opening in phases
Hann Casino Resort will open in phases, with the recent soft opening of Hann Casino and Swissotel Clark soon after, marking the first phase. Hann Casino is triple the size of the previous gaming area in Widus Hotel & Casino, featuring hundreds of table games and over 800 slot machines.
The second phase will see the grand launch of Hann Casino and the first flagship franchise of Swissotel Clark, a five-star international brand well-renowned for its intelligent design, quality craftsmanship, and mindful approach to sustainability. Swissotel Clark will also usher in top-notch international and local cuisines like no other.
