After closing for a little over 2 years due to the COVID Pandemic. Holiday Resort and Spa officially reopened its doors on April 29th.

Eugene the Operations Manager said,  “We didn’t open up full force. So we started out slow. But we’re very optimistic and tourism is the main bread and butter of the island and generating a lot of jobs. So it’s very important and it feels good. It feels very good that we finally get to open our doors after 2 years of being closed.”

According to Seong Jung Cho – Holiday Resort’s Executive Director – it is thanks to the Resort’s staff for sticking around and willingness to come back to work following the COVID pandemic that they are able to stick around. Seong adds,  “Although, not all the staff that I’d like to thank can be in attendance today. I’d like to take this opportunity and this moment to let you guys know thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

The event, according to some of the Holiday Resort Staff, also helps signifies the reopening of Guam. As the island’s restrictions lax, with the recent lifting of the mask mandate, according to Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, who spoke at the event, now would be one of the best times to revive the tourism market.

Governor Lou Leon Guerrero in attendance stated that, “It is a good time for Guam. I think we have finally made the very strong efforts a result. And want to just report that our virus continues to be contained. And we have our tourism coming. And of course the Korean market is the first one that has opened their doors and are willing to travel.”

During the resort’s hiatus, and in preparedness for its eventual reopening, the resort got a fresh coat of paint. As for the future Holiday Resort, Eugene says that room and infrastructure updates are coming up soon.
