MANILA, Philippines — A total of 268 hotels and resorts can now accommodate tourists and visitors in Boracay, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) announced Wednesday.

Among the establishments now allowed to operate, the Fairways and Bluewater Resort and the Savoy Hotel in Barangay Yapak have the highest number of available rooms at 700 and 559 rooms, respectively.

Boracay reopened last Oct. 26 following a six-month closure for rehabilitation.

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier called for the closure and clean-up of Boracay after raising concern about the island’s environmental and zoning problems.

Last Nov. 26, a total of 243 accommodation establishments have been accredited by the Department of Tourism after securing permits and clearances from the Department of Interior and Local Government and the DENR. /muf
