Paradise in Bohol
By Ricky Tuazon

Fri 15th April 2011

A considerable stay in the metropolis can be rather exhausting, tedious traffic, ccornucopia of malls, restaurants, buildings and a constant flow of people and vehicles. There is then an impelling need for respite in one of the souther islands. First choice of course would be Boracay but this has ceased to be a pristine island  and is now teeming with tourists and a hoax of establishments. Cebu has become another tourist favorite but is slowly gaining ground in developing into another mini metroopolis.

An island that has to be considered is Bohol which boasts of refreshing verdant rice fields, lush vegetation and quaint villages. In Baclayon hidden on a mountain top is a resort that will take you to another world and where tranquility could be felt in the expansive area of the PEACOCK GARDEN resort. The way to the resort is a steep winding path and as the gates open you can breathe in the serenity as the vehicle traverses the winding path concerted with trees historically identified and accentuated by a  lone peacock proudly parading his fan feathers.  And there perched om the mountain top is the villa in its understated elegance of European influence. Indeed you have ceased to be in the Philippines as resident Chito Lloren ex Bayanihan dancer and former Parisian resident now based in Yagna commented everytime he visits the resorts.
