The Visit Discovery Travel Mart is back – and this time, it’s got a new heavyweight ready to take on Metro Manila and the Makati City skyline.
Get ready for it.
The recent (and still on going) Visit Discovery Travel Mart which was launched at the SM Mega Fashion Hall last October 10, 2014 showcases the newest and, dare I say, greatest Discovery Leisure Group towering star – Discovery Primea.
Discovery Primea forges a new partnership
I learned during our exclusive time at the Visit Discovery Travel Mart through Discovery Primea’s very gracious General Manager, Mr. David Pardo de Ayala, that Discovery Leisure Group’s luxury business hotel located along Ayala Avenue recently signed a partnership with the prestigious Preferred Hotel Group (PHG) as a member of their Summit Hotels & Resorts brand.
What is the Preferred Hotel Group?
Preferred Hotel Group is an incredible global collection of more than (get this) 650 independent hotels and resorts in over 85 countries. It is comprised of destination resorts, city center hotels, luxury residences, and unique hotel groups.
So, what makes being part of this group special, you might ask? It gets quite technical. But please bear with me…
The Preferred Hotel Group provides independent hotel owners and operators a competitive advantage, with services including strategic group, corporate, and leisure sales, integrated marketing solutions, comprehensive revenue management, global connectivity through reservations services, progressive distribution technology, and individualized guest support.
Whew! Hope I didn’t lose you on all those words. Hahaha!
You know how some hotels offer valuable points to regular guests and customers via a loyalty program? Well, Preferred Hotel Group has their very own version of that. If you’re one who frequently stays in hotels (or even if you don’t), you’re going to want to know all about this…
All guests of Discovery Primea are eligible to enroll in iPrefer, the world’s first guest loyalty program for independent hotels, which extends points redeemable for cash-value Reward Certificates, elite status, and special benefits such as complimentary Internet to members upon every stay at more than 500 participating Preferred Hotel Group locations worldwide.

Intimate merienda with Discovery Primea
I’d like to thank the good folks of Discovery Primea for hosting a wonderful and very intimate merienda for us at Tim Ho Wan during the opening of the Visit Discovery Travel Mart. It was a joy to exchange pleasantries over great food and with amazing company.
Not only that. The personalized touch and exclusive ambiance they so happily prepared during our short get-together was really something. Thank you so much.
If our merienda was any indication, I am confident that Discovery Primea is going to be THE destination of choice for people who appreciate attention to detail and top-notch world class service.
It is only a matter of time before their much anticipated opening.
Discovery Primea is coming
Discovery Primea is soft opening in the 1st Quarter of 2015 and is the latest hotel in The Discovery Leisure Company, Inc., the same group behind the multi-awarded Discovery Shores Boracay, Discovery Suites Ortigas, Discovery Country Suites in Tagaytay and the recently acquired Club Paradise in Palawan.
I actually heard that Discovery Primea will have one of the fastest internet connections you can find (and enjoy) anywhere in the country. I can’t wait to experience that when they open their doors early next year.
If you want to know more about Discovery Primea and the other amazing properties of The Discovery Leisure Company, Inc., head on over to the Visit Discovery Travel Mart at the SM Megamall Atrium. They will be there until October 14, 2014.
