Huli sa Instagram! Berna Puyat wants Subic resort investigated for operating despite lockdown

Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat has ordered an investigation into a resort in Subic, Zambales, which was found to be accepting guests from the NCR Plus bubble despite the prevailing modified enhanced community quarantine.

Acea Subic Beach Resort’s clandestine operations were discovered after the wife of broadcaster Anthony Taberna, Rossel, shared photos of their “couple’s getaway” out of town.

Taberna even promoted the 50% promo for bookings in the property, which is branded as a “work from paradise” promo that runs until May 31.

The DOT got wind of Taberna’s post before she managed to delete it.

“Following receipt of a social media post involving an accommodation establishment in Subic allegedly accepting guests from the NCR Plus Bubble, the DOT through its Region 3 Office is now conducting verification procedure and shall release a formal investigation report on the matter,” Puyat said.

The Tourism chief reminded the public that non-essential travel is still banned for those who are part of the NCR Plus bubble while the MECQ is in effect until May 14.
