Saturday, January 23, 2010

January 23, 2010 the Opening of the newest Paradise Gumasa, Glan Saranganni has to offer. The ISLA JARDIN DEL MAR, owned and managed by fishing magnate Mr. Marfin Tan also the owner of Sydney Hotel and Isla Parilla.

(The Group Brendel and Lyle, Sheng and Kyaw, Arnel and Jinky, Bariles, Orman, Gilbert, Mandi, Mr. John, Me and the owner Mr Marfin Tan)

I was invited to join by Go Sarangani Travel & Tour's Michelle Solon and fellow bloggers. I got excited when i was informed that Davao Bloggers Lyle and Brendel are also coming.

We left Gensan at around 1:30 Michelle fetch us joining us were ate Sheng, sir Gilbert, kuya Arnel, Brendel and Mr. John Achaval (Michelle's friend). We were chit chatting and I enjoyed it that I didn't realized we were there already. As any other travels first thing you will look for when you land is the COMFORT ROOM. And Comfort Rooms are very important especially in resorts because that's the first thing I look at and this will be the deciding factor whether to bathe or not.(too bad i don't have photos of their WIDE and CLEAN comfort rooms)

A wide white sand beach front is their number one come on not to mention they also have a Lagoon unlike in Isla Parilla (a man made island) I think this lagoon comes with the property naturally.

They have Jetskies, motor speed boats and I'm not sure if the ATV's are for rent or a guest brought it there.


(jetskie, i hope they are for rent)

They have 10 aircon cottage rooms and 10 non aircon cottage rooms. They also have open cottages.


Each cottage has a banga full of water to wash away beach sands before entering the rooms. This is a small but critical things that the management really thought about and I commend them for it.

We walked to the South end and their were skim boarders enthusiast enjoying the wave so i took photos.

At the other end a tall wall with small caves was our subject and background for our photos.

We also enjoyed our jump shoots. :)
