In addition, the IR has a curated art programme and display comprised of celebrated names in the local and international art scenes, providing highlights to the resort’s spaces.

Solaire established the country as a contender in the international IR arena being the only fully Filipino-owned and operated IR that has received multiple distinctions from global award-giving bodies.

Enrique K. Razon Jr., chairman and CEO of BRC, remarked: “From a decade ago when we opened Solaire Resort Entertainment City, it has always been our mission to provide a fresh yet indulgent brand of luxury that has not been experienced in the Philippines before.

“With Solaire Resort North, we uphold the same mission in the hope that the property’ presence and operation will support Quezon City’s endeavours to enhance and promote tourism, generate employment for Filipinos (4,200 direct employment opportunities), and further attract opportunities for economic and social investments.”

“Quezon City is a highly urbanised city with a population largely comprised of locals with a wide range of demographic interests. We saw an opportunity to provide more exclusive experiences not just to our existing Northern clientele but to a larger untapped market,” said Thomas Arasi, president and COO of BRC, Solaire Resort Entertainment City, and Solaire Resort North.
