Sheridan Boutique Resort: A Haven in Iloilo

I get a different kind of high and excitement every time I discover something new while I'm traveling in our dear country. There's nothing better than exploring your own home. The best thing about it is that I get to share most of these discoveries with all of you. A few weeks ago, an invitation to travel to Iloilo fell on my lap. Another travel opportunity presented itself. One of my best friends from college wanted me to be at the opening of her new restaurant called Punot (Modern Flavors of Iloilo. Another blog post. Please do visit!). Since I had already been to Iloilo a few years before this trip, I did not like the idea of staying in a run-off-the-mill 3 or 4 star hotel. After all, as a blogger, I have a certain responsibility to my readers.  Thanks to my blog's Facebook page, I was able to ask you all where I could stay in Iloilo for the weekend. A good number of you had suggestions but I went with one resort that stood out: Sheridan Boutique Resort.

Sheridan Boutique Resort was everything I wanted for this short sojourn: Refreshing. Private. Clean. Relaxing.  Located in Oton, 15 minutes away from the city proper, this resort transports you to a different world. I could say this resort is comparable to most of the high end resorts in Bali. The only thing missing is the beach.

Our jaws dropped when we entered the premises of Sheridan. 

The Azure infinity pool is easily the center of the whole resort. Instead of the ocean or sea, you have a lake in front you.
