Tacloban City (November 17) -- The 43-room MacArthur Park Beach Resort, one of the best hotels in Region 8 which is now under the Philippine Tourism Authority, will soon be under the management of the Provincial Government of Leyte.

This is contained in Executive Order No. 756 which was signed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on October 2, 2008, upon the request of Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho L. Petilla.

It was learned that although the Resort is now being managed by the Philippine Tourism Authority, the more than five-hectares land where the Resort is situated, is owned by the Provincial Government of Leyte.

Under the Executive Order, the Provincial Government of Leyte " shall have full control of the operations, management, maintenance and further development" of the MacArthur Park Beach Resort.

Initial reports coming from reliable sources stated that the Provincial Government have plans to rehabilitate and improve the hotel. The Provincial Government of Leyte is reportedly looking for some private partners in this endeavor.

The Executive Order underscored that all the personnel of the hotel who are currently under the Philippine Tourism Authority, "shall be transferred to the provincial government," which have the prerogative to rationalize the personnel complement in accordance with Civil Service rules and regulations.

Situated along the historic Red Beach, site of one of the greatest naval battles in history, MacArthur Park Beach Resort is a " Class A Resort " which is just a stone's throw away from the MacArthur Landing Memorial.

Situated in a 5-hectare property, the Resort has rooms all tastefully decorated with native materials. There are 43 aircon rooms with cable T.V., telephones, private toilet and bath with hot/cold running water. Also among its facilities are two swimming pools, conference rooms and ballroom dancing every Fridays and Saturdays. (PIA 8) [top]
