Kuya Avel and I were excited about attending the opening of Isla Jardin del Mar
The trip to Glan, Sarangani was uneventful
I slept for the duration of the trip
Eh siempre si Peter Pilot ang driver!
The new resort is located in Barangay Gumasa, Glan
Lampas ito ng Rosal Beach and White Haven Resort
Impressive ang concrete road network na ginawa
One will really get the notion that the Provincial Government mean business
Sarangani’s best shot to fame is its natural TOURISM destination
Supporting private sector initiative is the best way to go
Isla Jardin del Mar is latest project of Marfin and Rose Tan
Putting in millions of pesos to a resort of this magnitude is no joke
What was once a rugged terrain of coconut trees and wild grass
Is now transformed into a modern beach resort facility
It took years to develop the entirety of the Tan Property
Their daughter, Wanchin, attests that seeing it now is worth all the effort
So there we were, still struck by the awesome sight
Trying to blend with the multitude of guests
When the emcee announced that the two buffet tables were ready
Eh nasa tapat kami ng sashimi nook, di ba bongga!
We had our fill our the fresh yellow-fin tuna sashimi
The buffet line was so long that I thought it reached Malapatan Town
But surprisingly, when we lined up, there was still enough food to spare
Way to go, Wanchin, I take my hats off to you and your team
It was also a witty move to include a beach volleyball competition that day
It was a good way to while one’s time away
Although the attire of the players were quite distracting
The game in itself is engaging!
Isla Jardin del Mar just bagged this event for the Sarangani Bay Festival
Hands down, they have the best venue for a beach volleyball game
To totally enjoy Isla Jardin del Mar, one has to be adventurous
Our team navigated the resort from end to end
And as you go farther from the main area,
The sand becomes finer and the view is even more captivating
No wonder, Sarangani’s Tourism Czar Michelle Solon is smiling from ear to ear
There are enough possibilities in Isla Jardin del Mar
And we couldn’t wait to be back to explore it even more
Ganda Ever So Much rates Isla Jardin del Mar 4 out of 5 stars!
