Tsubaki Tower, the self-described luxury Guam hotel that’s under construction and aiming to open several months from now has approximately 340 jobs that are open.

The hotel held a job fair Saturday at the Hotel Nikko Guam, adjacent to the Tsubaki Tower construction site along hotel row in Tumon Bay.

The hotel is hiring for various jobs within its housekeeping front desk, food and beverage, culinary, recreation, engineering, accounting, purchasing and receiving, reservation and human resources departments.

The Premier Hotel Group, a subsidiary of Japan-based Ken Corp., recently announced Tsubaki Tower will open on April 25, 2020.

Tsubaki Tower wasn’t ready to answer when The Guam Daily Post asked about the project’s cost and whether it’s on budget and on schedule.

The Tumon Bay hotel will offer 340 rooms, including 62 suites.

The upcoming hotel will offer restaurants and bars, an infinity pool, The Garden Plaza and Sky Wedding, an outdoor chapel on the 27th floor.

Tsubaki Tower will increase Ken Corp.’s portfolio of hotel investments on Guam to six.

Another subsidiary of Ken Corp., P.H.R. Ken Micronesia Inc., was established as an operational company for five hotels and one golf course on Guam: Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort, Hilton Guam Resort & Spa, Pacific Islands Club, Hyatt Regency Guam, Hotel Nikko Guam and Country Club of the Pacific.
