The property owning company, New Riviera Hotel Development Corporation, said in the official statement, that it has decided to close JEN Manila permanently as part of their redevelopment plans for the property.
“The hotel will continue to operate, and honor reservations made up to and including 31 August 2022, after which it will cease operations,” the company spokeperson said.
The 46-year old property has seen its glory days of tourism when it was opened in 1976 under the management of Holiday Inn. In 1995, Shangri-La took over under the brand Traders Hotel followed by JEN Manila brand in 2014.
JEN Manila said, “Every effort is being made to support all affected colleagues through this transition, including the provision of a fair compensation package and extension of healthcare insurance coverage until 31 December 2022.”
“We would like to thank all our guests, partners, colleagues for their unwavering support over the past 27 years, particularly during the challenging pandemic years.”
