A celebration for Azure

Water certainly has a way of calming one’s nerves. No wonder, a dip in the beach or the pool is always part of everyone’s idea of fun and relaxation.
Thus, Sheridan Boutique Resort located in Brgy. Buray, Oton, recently launched its latest attraction – the Azure Infinity pool.
“Lavish yourself with the tranquil abundance of scenic and man-made details,” goes the resort’s invitation to dip in the pool, which is situated at the elevated portion of the resort.
Around it are Asian images and at another side is the lagoon that connects to the Batiano River.
The pool and lagoon are not the only attractions inside the resort, which was designed by architect Jomarie Yao who is known for his modern Asian touch.
Casitas Premium Rooms are situated at the left while at the other side are Asian murals and the Wilfredo's Ballroom which is ideal for conventions because it can accommodate 400 guests.
Just near the pool is the Ayanna Restaurant that serves a fusion of eastern and western cuisines and is open from 10 to 2 in the morning and from 6 to 10 in the evening.
At the main building, there’s a pond of huge koi, a mini-falls and a garden. Someone said that it’s good feng shui to have koi inside the house, because the property and the people living and doing business in it, are blessed.
A walk in this 1.5-hectare property is leisurely because of its paved pathways and impeccably manicured lawns. Along the way, one can find wooden benches from where one is afforded a view of the length of the lagoon and the resort’s facilities.
Also, Sheridan Boutique Resort was the official home resort of the recently concluded Mutya ng Pilipinas 2012 search.
So, to treat the Ilonggos to a taste of the search, owner Joseph Tan and his children Jefferson and Jackilyn, invited four candidates to grace the launching of Azure Infinity Pool last August 3.
Apart from that, some guests won in the raffle comprising of accommodations, dinners and entrance to the resort. Although we at The News Today didn’t win anything, we felt like winners anyway because we experienced how Sheridan Boutique Resort is breathtaking
especially at night, the good food, and the fun party because of the daring fire dancers and
the fireworks.
Sheridan Boutique Resort can be reached by taking an Oton jeep from Iloilo City.
For more information and reservations, they can be reached through 3373624 or 09228025351 or e-mail to wilfredosgarden@yahoo.com.ph.* (The News Today, August 17, 2012)
