IBA: A four-story hotel aimed at generating income and boosting tourism in Zambales was recently unveiled at the provincial capital.
Gov. Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. said the Zambales Hotel is located inside the Zambales Sports Complex, overlooking the track and field oval and an Olympic-size swimming pool.
The P64-million hotel will be operated by the provincial government. It will be used for meetings and seminars of local governments as well as community groups.
His Excellency John Momis, president of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, was the guest of honor during the ceremony.
Ebdane and Momis also inau-gurated the two-story Zambales Training Center, which has housed the two batches of trainees from Bougainville.
“For so long, our beaches and islands have attracted tourists, and our rivers, mountain trails, and lahar dunes have drawn sports enthusiasts. Now, we’re trying to develop another market—those who go out of town for meetings and conventions,” Ebdane said.
