Hafadai Hotel is now Grandvrio Resort


The Hafadai Beach Hotel on Saipan will now be known as “Grandvrio Resort Saipan.”

A statement from Akira Takaoka, the hotel’s general manager, said the hotel has seen “and accommodated a broad range of tourists in line with the globalized market in Saipan.”

“Hereby we are pleased to announce that our hotel name ‘Hafadai Beach Hotel,’ which has years of history and has been popularly well known by many people, shall be changed,” Takaoka said.

The new hotel will carry the “Grandvrio” brand, which has been developed nationwide in Japan, under the Route Inn group, the executive said.

“Grandvrio” originated from the Italian word “grand” and “brio” meaning “vigor.”

Takaoka vowed that the hotel will continue to “cordially welcome our valued customers and make our best efforts for them by providing comfortable accommodation and quality service.”

The executive did not say if the hotel will add more facilities to go with the name change.

The hotel currently has 425 rooms and, at 18 stories high, remains the tallest hotel building on Saipan. It is one of the oldest landmarks in Garapan and is strategically located near other tourist spots, including the T-Galleria shopping center.

The hotel will still be operated by Saipan Hotel Corp.
