Sarangani Beach Resort Series: Rosal Beach

Posted on by in , ,

Rosal Beach Resort was recently visited by a famous personality, the Queen of All Media, Ms. Kris Aquino.

Although not part of her pitstops for her week-long KrisTV Birthday special on General Santos City, her spur-of-the-moment decision to visit the place located along the white sand beaches of Gumasa, Glan, Sarangani landed it a spot on the top-rating show.

As part of the LGU staff who accompanied her during her two-day visit in the Tuna Capital, I witnessed how much she enjoyed her brief visit to Glan, Sarangani’s crown jewel and prime tourism destination.

Upon after her arrival at Rosal Beach after an hour-long drive from Sarangani Highlands in GenSan where she and her crew were billeted, she immediately took off her shoes and walked barefoot in the immaculately white beach of the resort.

It was love at first sight for the Presidential Sister who even quipped that she would want to buy a property there.  We from GenSan and the Tourism officers of Sarangani who were with her, could only silently clap our hands with glee.

Everybody wants to be my neighbor,” she even joked.

She also tweeted about her discovery.

Rosal Beach, for the past years, has been a choice weekend destination of people in Southern Mindanao.  One of the resorts of the Adarna Family in a four-kilometer stretch of white sand beach,  which is the main activity area of the annual Sarangani Bay Festival,  it has the most number of overnite rooms.  Although quite pricey than the nearby White Haven Beach Resort, Rosal boasts of bigger cottages and more amenities for its guests. Soon, two-story apartment-type accommodations plus villas on the hillside farther back will be part of the whole resort.
