Full steam ahead!

This seems to be the battle-cry of everybody working at “The Oriental Hotel – Leyte” – the new hotel taking shape at the former site of the MacArthur Beach Resort at Red Beach, Palo, Leyte – when we visited the site today, December 15 for a first hand view of the project.

Singaporean-backed conglomerate LKY Property Holdings is rushing construction of its P300-million resort hotel; its soft opening has been set before the end of the year.

Developers pushed not just for a renovation but a total reconstruction of a new hotel.

New structures have been erected where the buildings of the old hotel once stood.

An elegant lobby now sits adjacent to the restaurant and spa lounges.

The hotel will also have outdoor pools and fitness facilities.

The new hotel offers new facilities for functions, meetings and conferences all housed in a new building. It boasts of having a 1,000 seating capacity ballroom suited for big conferences and conventions.

This answers the clamor for a large venue which has been a major problem in the region when hosting national conferences.

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++.
