MANILA, Philippines — Camiguin province is poised to become one of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)’s most sought-after tourist and event destination as two companies are set to expand their hotel business here, Gov. Maria Luis Romualdo said over the weekend.

Romualdo said two prominent hoteliers in Cagayan de Oro will be putting up their facilities in the island-province’s two towns.

A hotel owned by Limketkai will stand in Barangay Tupsan Pequeño, Mahinog town, while Mallberry will expand its hospitality business in Barangay Bonbon in the municipality of Catarman.

In Cagayan de Oro, Limketkai operates the 213-room Luxe Hotel located within its mall complex. Mallberry, owned by Roger Chiu, has its own Mallberry Business Suites Hotel within the Limketkai mall.

With the completion of these two new hotels, Romualdo said Camiguin will be ready to accommodate any event and welcome all visitors.

“Camiguin will never back out from hosting any major event,” she said at the sidelines of the annual street dancing competition, one of the highlights of the 38th celebration of the Lanzones Festival held last month.

The Lanzones Festival, an event celebrating the bountiful harvest of lanzones, which is abundant in the island, is among the major activities in Camiguin, drawing local and foreign tourists to the island. 

Last year, the ASEAN Center for Biodiversity declared Camiguin’s Mount Timpoong and Mount Hibok-Hibok natural ranges as ASEAN Heritage Parks, one of the few areas in the Philippines recognized as such.

With this recognition, Romualdo said it won’t be long for citizens of ASEAN member-countries to visit Camiguin.

“We will never say no to anyone who would want to come and visit us. Yes, we are now ready for them,” she said, referring to the potential tourists from the Southeast Asian region.
