The Abuyog Hotel formally opened its doors to the public in simple inaugural and blessing ceremonies held Eastern Sunday, April 24, 2011.
Abuyog Mayor Octavio “Bebot” Traya and former Represesentative and now Baybay Mayor Carmen Cari led the ribbon cutting ceremony formally opening the new three-storey, P29M project of the Abuyog Local Government Unit (LGU).
Located at the heart of Abuyog near the Public Market and the Municipal Building, the new hotel now provides comfortable accommodation options to guests and travelers traversing the central-eastern region part of Leyte province.
The three-storey landmark showcases a well-refurbished lobby, a restaurant, function rooms, and a rooftop cafe and lounge with a panoramic view of the entire municipality and environs.
For the internet savvy, there’s free high-speed wi-fi web access.
The hotel project was started in 2006 during the time of former Mayor Ofelia Traya initially funded by a P15 million allocation. Another P14 million was released this year for its completion.
The hotel is currently staffed by some 20 local personnel and would be complemented by students taking up Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) at the Abuyog Community College (ACC).
An added direction further boosting the tourism industry in the area is the LGU’s plan to develop soon a mountain resort in Barangay Balinsasayaw.
The hotel’s promo room tariff ranges from P1,788++ to P2,700++.

An Waray Party-list once again produced this year’s tuba festival, aptly billed as the “3rd Oktubafest” last October 23 at the Leyte Park Convention Center, Tacloban City.
Hatched as part of the continuing efforts to promote the region’s cultural heritage and the coconut and the tuba industry in Eastern Visayas, the Octubafest showcased the local coconut wine, tuba.
The day-long affair also featured a photo essay contest, the on-the-spot kawit (tuba container) painting contest, a tuba wine tasting contest, a cooking contest featuring tuba-infused dish and kotil and several other entertainment numbers.
The festival saw the participation of several municipalities from all over Eastern Visayas with their respective tuba exhibit booths.
