Who would have thought that right at the heart of Koronadal City hides a man-made paradise that is fit for anyone's getaway, summer or not. Yap! If you ever find yourself heading South anytime soon, here is one place that might just interest you!

Discover Paradise!

Welcome to Paraiso Verde Resort and Water Park! It's everything you’ve ever wished for a water park without having to fly up North. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, you and your family can enjoy the aquatic attractions without having to hit the sea. Let out the kid in you and frolic under the sun while you chase and tease the real-like waves of Moby - it's a whale of a wave pool with a giant bucket that gives a big SPLASH!
The resort also features Wiggle, a pool with a wide slide , mini buckets and showers that is just perfect for your toddlers , and FreeStyle, a lap pool, if you're feeling a little athletic or if you simply want a relaxing swoosh in the pool.
They have different cabanas and function halls around the resort to accommodate big parties and gatherings or you can opt to rent a tent for a more affordable shade. Colorful inflatables are also available for a day's rent of only P30.00 so you can enjoy the pool all the more!
What about the food? You can go ahead and prepare your picnic basket and pay corkage at a minimum rate or you can just hit the road to paraiso and order your meals from their canteen! Their sister company, Cinco Ninas, partners with the resort in providing sumptuous meals minus the hassle of the preppies! They have meal packages that would easily fit in your pocket! Spell convenience!
Here's a glimpse of my quick escape to
Paraiso Verde Resort and Water Park:

Your Home in Paradise.

Just a few steps before you reach Paraiso Verde Resort and Water Park is a haven you can call home when you are in the Land of the Dream Weavers : welcome to Paraiso Verde Hotel!

A bonzai display will greet you as you approach the hotel's facade. The lobby boasts of high ceiling with a modern-feel to it.I especially like the wall treatment at the front desk and the earth tones everywhere all the more made it look very homey yet sophisticated  to me, not to mention that all the corners of the lobby are highly instagram worthy!
The rooms provide ample space, well-appointed with comfortable bed and pillows and offers a balcony where you can enjoy both your coffee and the morning sun.
Standard Matrimonial Room
Standard Twin Room

Room rates are inclusive of breakfast for two and access to Paraiso Verde Resort and Water Park which is just a stone's throw away! Cool!

The two properties featured here are perfect options for a quick escape from our busy schedule. This is where you can definitely mix business with pleasure!

Life begins at forty. Indeed, you start feeling all the signs : signs of aging, signs of getting bigger , etc. etc. I have just about joined team FA (forty-above, hahaha) and am already feeling the signs, ugh! So recently, I found myself enrolling at a nearby fitness gym to get me started with this "getting healthy" thingy and while I am happy with the program introduced by the resident instructor, I often find myself hungry for more demonstrations. Thanks to Youtube , I  get to watch fitness vids and get my enthusiasm burning---tho' not without a decent internet connection. :(

"Smart’s postpaid plans just got a major boost 
with the biggest data offers yet 
and a much simpler and easier way 
to build your very own postpaid plan 
starting at only P399 per month. "

Now , here is a good sign!!! This also means having BIGGER data allocation not to mention more free chat apps (FB Messenger, Viber and Whatsapp) plus, you get to send unlimited all net texts. Although you have the option to add a handset to the plan of your choice, #SmartPostpaidPlans let you BUILD YOUR OWN PLAN without getting you locked in a device or limited set of services so you can enjoy everything you want online , including  youtube enthrallment, anywhere I go! Lol!

"Smart’s new offers start at Plan 399, 
which now comes with 3GB data
 (up from the previous 1 GB data),
followed by Plan 599 with 5GB data (up from 4GB), 
and Plan 799 with 8GB data (up from 7GB)."

This is really neat especially if you are the wanderlust type who loves sharing to social media the beauty of the world around you. It's time to make every moment of every day BIGGER because with a smart postpaid plan, you also get to enjoy the country's fastest LTE speeds! Awesome! And the best part is, all you need to enjoy these and more is just a valid ID--no more of the usual application requirements. Practically anyone can upgrade to Line-only Postpaid Plan with just a valid ID! So what are you waiting for? Ugrade na!

Pili ka na ng plan that will work best for you. Meantime, imma try to do this side-plank properly.

Enjoy a much bigger mobile lifestyle now by getting a new Smart Postpaid Plan! Head to the nearest Smart Store or visit for more information.
