Subic Riviera Hotels and Residences aims to make mark in hospitality industry in Olongapo

The Subic Freeport Zone has long been a center of hospitality in Olongapo City – its landscape is dotted with numerous hotels and accommodations each offering their flavor of Philippine conviviality and warmth. This competitive space is where Subic Riviera Hotel and Residences decided to enter and with much enthusiasm, presented their brand of exceptional service supported with fiber connectivity that’s second to none.

The Subic Riviera Hotel and Residences was established by Myung Kook Kang in the middle of the global pandemic and opened its doors just in November 2023. As a new business, management had its share of hesitation and nervousness, especially catering to a post-pandemic market.

“We opened in November 2023, and at first, there were not too many customers because they don’t know the place,” said Kang.

“Medyo ninenerbyos after the grand opening kasi inisip namin noon na baka walang pumasok na guest,” affirmed Ivy Grace A. Garcia, General Manager of the hotel.

Fortunately, with the stellar amenities and offerings of the hotel – which include a sky lounge, the Essa cafe, a restaurant, 150 rooms, function rooms, and two private villas with a private pool – word about the hotel quickly spread around town.

Now, said Kang, the hotel is almost always fully booked and attracts foreign travelers as well as local ones.

Touted as a ‘family-friendly’ hotel, the hotel’s two villas are always in demand by families wanting to celebrate special occasions with their own private pool and extensive rooms, noted Garcia.

Supporting the word-of-mouth campaign in the promotion of the hotel is of course the hotel’s social media, powered by the fiber connection of Converge.

“Malaking bagay si Converge because it’s through the internet that we update and promote our Facebook page. Without it, wala kaming communication with our clients,” Garcia added.

Subic Riviera Hotel and Residences continues to reach out to vacationers and travelers through its social media, all while offering 300 mbps speeds to its patrons which can be accessed anywhere in the hotel.

This fast and high-speed connectivity will all the more enable the hotel to grow its business as it takes its place as a mainstay in the hospitality scene in Pampanga.

“Right now, wifi is crucial for our communications and we’re happy to have wifi that we can depend on for our operations,” added Kang.

Kang is confident that Subic Riviera Hotel and Residences will become a permanent feature of the hospitality landscape in five year’s time, at which time he will put up another branch of the hotel.

“After five years, I plan to have another hotel branch in Subic,” notes Kang.
