When did you open Parrot Resort Moalboal and what inspired you to do so?
We started with one small apartment for friends and visitors, and now, a few years later, it is a small hotel resort.
What do you love most about Parrot Resort Moalboal?
I like to work in a tropical place near to the beach and to create my own rooms and place. There is something to repair and improve every day.
What has been the most rewarding part of opening Parrot Resort Moalboal?
Living your dream and earning your daily money at the same time.
What has been your biggest challenge and how have you overcome this?
The biggest challenge was to do better than everyone else but we succeeded in the end.
Tell us about your team (how you built the team/what you love most)
We are 12 people for 10 rooms, parrots, and a garden - basically a big family.
How has Tab helped Parrot Resort Moalboal?
We already had a card reader that was constantly offline and always gave us problems. Then I tried TAB and we were so happy with it that we canceled the card terminal at the bank 3 months later.
What is your favourite feature that Tab offers? Why?
My favourite feature is the ability to create advance bookings and also the online payment for our restaurant!
Why would you recommend Tab to another business?
It is easy to use, mobile, and the staff and guests like it.
Why are the Philippines a great place to visit?
The Philippines is home to world-renowned natural wonders like rice terraces, waterfalls, and whale shark-watching. There are incredible diving spots rich in biodiversity, colourful public transportation, unique cuisine, vibrant festivals that showcase its colourful culture, and friendly locals who are regarded as some of the happiest in the world.
What would your advice be for anyone thinking about starting their own tourism business?
Be unique, excel above others, and love what you do.
