Meet the General Manager
When you meet the general manager, Mr. Jerome De La Fuente, and get to talk with him heart-to-heart about running the hotel or the tourism industry in CDO, one tends to think of him as a Cagayanon who adamantly pushes to improve Cagayan de Oro’s tourism industry. This is because, for Sir Jerome, when you improve the tourist industry, you improve the hotel business in the city. For him this logic is not hard to comprehend. But in reality, Sir Jerome hails from Manila; quite a feat considering that being a native Manileno, he cares a great deal in improving the details that will attract anyone, Filipinos and foreigners alike, to come to Cagayan de Oro for business or pleasure. He also cares a lot for all the hotel employees, emphasizing that attitude plays a large part in the employee’s continued service and promotion.
He believes that the government needs to make an extra effort for Cagayan de Oro by stopping negative travel advisories that have no bearing on what is happening in the city or even the province. Though Sir Jerome’s background was more in advertising, his passion and glamor seeking was inclined to the hotel business, having had vast experiences in public relations, sales, and eventually being a general manager for famous international hotel chains in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore. After several years of working abroad, he decided to return to Manila and open a consultancy firm. One fine day, friend of Sir Jerome from his international stints introduced him to the Limketkai Center owners, who hired him because they needed someone with international experience in the hotel industry and great expertise in sales.

For the Christmas season, Limketkai Luxe is preparing a slew of activities geared towards making both hotel and non-hotel guests feel the real spirit of the holidays, including “lighting up” the whole area to the maximum, something that the city has never seen the likes of before.
Quotable Quotes from Sir Jerome
“Cagayan de Oro is not Mindanao. Whatever happens anywhere in Mindanao has no effect whatsoever on the city.”
“If you take care of your people, your people will take care of your customers.”

Cagayan de Oro has been heard time and again to be the pearl in the entryway into Northern Mindanao, or for the whole island for that matter. In spite of this, for decades Cagayanons have clamored for a 5-star hotel that will finally put CDO in the tourist belt map, and something to boast for that is more than at par with the best from other major Philippine cities. It’s only appropriate and fitting that CDO’s best and finest 5-star hotel should come from a local entrepreneur group, so here’s hoping that Limketkai Luxe Hotel can continue to be the city’s number one 5-star travel provider into the future.
