Berjaya Tioman Resort Malaysia To Close Down
News update. Berjaya Tioman Resort Malaysia To Close Down on 15 June 2020. This is announced on Berjaya Tioman Resort Malaysia official Facebook Page yesterday and the story is picked by the local dailies too.
Berjaya Tioman Resort Malaysia is a popular four star resort in Tioman Island. They offer 268 rooms and suites and managed by Berjaya Hotels and Resorts. The resort is more than 50 years old.
We visited Berjaya Tioman Resort Malaysia ten years ago for the ORIS Col Moschin Launch event. To be honest, the condition of the resort was not up to its glory days. With this COVID-19 pandemic, it do not help the local tourism industry either.
The official statement is as below.
It is with a heavy heart to announce that Berjaya Tioman Resort will cease operations with effect from 15 June 2020 due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic which has adversely impacted the tourism industry. Throughout this closure, the management will embark on a much-needed major redevelopment to revitalize the resort which is more than 50 years old.
Our hearts go out to those who have been affected by this closure. It is with deep regret that retrenchment will be carried out and all affected employees will be fairly compensated in accordance to the Collective Agreement (CA) and the Employment Act, amounting a total compensation of more than RM 8 million.
Upon completion of the redevelopment exercise, the Management will consider offering new employment to all our affected employees. Thank you for dedication and for staying with the resort though thick and thin.
Until then, stay safe and we hope our paths will cross again in the near future.
