AquaTerra was founded to make five star luxury hotels and resorts more widely available in the Philippines to match a growing and increasingly lucrative travel market and to establish the Philippines as a significant regional player in pairing tourism with sustainable development. Building on its expertise in greenfield projects, island infrastructure and logistics, local permitting, and raising capital, AquaTerra is perfectly situated to be a leader in ecologically responsible development. By working with world-class experts and consultants in the high-end hospitality sector across a range of disciplines, AquaTerra is committed to bringing the elite of the hospitality industry to the Philippines.


AquaTerra is developing a project pipeline throughout the Philippines, matching each distinct location with a unique luxury resort experience tailored to future guests.

Hermana Mayor

With development already underway, Hermana Mayor is a 500 hectare private island destination ten kilometers from the Philippines’ main island of Luzon with over seven kilometers of white sand beach. AquaTerra is developing Hermana Mayor to be a world-class resort, offering an extensive range of leisure activities and amenities located throughout the island. Through initiatives in clean technology and sustainable design, sustainability will touch all aspects of the resort.

At the heart of the island’s future will be Rosewood Hermana Mayor, the brand’s debut property in the Philippines. With an eye towards Asia’s increasingly affluent travelers, Rosewood Hermana Mayor is designed as an experience-based ultra-luxury resort featuring unique cultural touches and subtle tropical elegance. Every destination tells a story, and Hermana Mayor is the story of a revolutionary new travel experience in Southeast Asia.
