Filinvest’s Grafik Hotel to boost tourism and Business in Camp John Hay

Filinvest Hospitality Corp. (FHC) is set to bolster Camp John Hay’s appeal as a prime tourism and investment destination with the introduction of The Grafik Hotel Collection. The latest hotel venture is poised to significantly contribute to the economic growth of Baguio.

At the Grafik Pine House Baguio topping-off ceremony on June 14, Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and CEO Joshua M. Bingcang highlighted the project’s importance in Camp John Hay’s development.
“We welcome this development as it will enhance the potential and future growth of Camp John Hay. This may be occupying a tiny spot in John Hay, but this will be the nucleus of growth moving forward,” said Bingcang.

John Hay Management Corp. (JHMC) President and CEO Marlo Ignacio V. Quadra also expressed confidence in the project’s potential to boost the John Hay Special Economic Zone’s appeal as both a tourism and investment destination.

“This project resonates deeply with our vision for Camp John Hay. As the estate manager, we aim to maximize the potential of this historical site to be a thriving economic center that brings not only tourism activities in this summer capital but also investment opportunities,” Quadra stated.

The Grafik Hotel Collection’s first property, located in Camp John Hay, Baguio, marks FHC’s latest line of hotels. It has a total investment of Php2.7 billion and will feature 256 upscale rooms and suites, five dining outlets, meeting spaces, and a spa–all slated to open in the 1st quarter of 2025.

FHC reports that the project has generated approximately 3,000 jobs during its construction phase and will create up to 300 more employment opportunities once it becomes operational.

“The Grafik Hotel Collection is poised to make a significant impact on the economy here in Baguio. It has created numerous jobs and will create more high-quality hospitality jobs as it opens. It will uplift the community,” said FHC First Senior Vice President Francis Nathaniel C. Gotianun.
