Lima Park Hotel is CALABARZON Tourism Champion
The Department of Tourism (DOT) conferred on Lima Park Hotel the Tourism Excellence award during the 4th CALABARZON Tourism Summit on November 27, 2017.
With the theme "Working Towards Sustainable Tourism and Building Partnerships Through Appreciation and Recognition," the Summit was the venue for recognizing the efforts of individuals and companies supporting the tourism sector. Lima Park Hotel was cited for its valuable contribution in adherence to tourism accreditation, quality standards and services, generation of data and information on tourist arrivals, both for overnight and same-day visitors, and initiating programs aligned to the National Tourism Development Plan of the Department of Tourism.
Rated by DOT as the first and only 4-star hotel in the province of Batangas, Lima Park Hotel has been consistently promoting tourist arrival in the Lakeshore District of Batangas province by creating tour experiences that include the Lake Taal cruises and Marian Orchard pilgrimage site in Balete. The hotel is also involved in numerous annual multisectoral and community activities such as the Batangas Development Summit, the Batangas Earth, Wind, and Water Festival, Karipasan Run for Wellness, Bisikleta Iglesia, among others.
DOT Region IV-A Regional Director Rebecca Villanueva-Labit said, “We have everything in the region, we have so many things to offer. The strength of this region is actually the goodness of the spirit of all our partners, the private sectors, the public sectors and the local government units." Labit, in particular, cited Lima Park Hotel for its innovative approach to tourism that even includes community development and environment protection.
