San Antonio Resort Roxas City

The day started early at the Roxas City Cathedral, shooting the church with the sun rising in the background. Capiz’s grand festival, the Sinadya sa Halaran soon followed with drumbeats and dancing. Then a breather at Bitoy’s Balay Barbekyuhan near Baybay Beach. And finally a visit at the record-breaking bell of Panay Church.

The group needed another breather. And thankfully there’s San Antonio Resort to the rescue.

Sunset at San Antonio Resort Roxas City

San Antonio Resort at Roxas is one of the premier resorts in the city. Located a few minutes from the town center, the seven-hectare relaxation paradise houses a total of fifty rooms and suites, a swimming pool, a boating lagoon, bowling lanes, and four restaurants and bars.


The Outdoor Pool at San Antonio Resort Roxas City

The lagoon looked really serene in the afternoon light but I was drawn more to the infinity-like pool. I would’ve taken a dip too if we were not pressed for time.

Seafood Pasta at San Antonio Resort Roxas City

Sitting right beside the pool, a table was arranged for us with platefuls of seafood pasta and cold drinks. To be honest, I thought the dish wouldn’t sit well with my taste. I mean, mussels and tomato sauce?

But it was love at first bite. The combination of the fettuccine pasta, the cheese, the thick sauce, and the succulent seafood was just spot on. This is one of the best pastas I’ve ever tried.

Iridescent Clouds Roxas City Philippines

We roamed around the resort a bit after our filling snack and saw the most unusual skyscape. The sun, hiding behind thick clouds was throwing warm crepuscular rays left and right. It was great in itself, but what’s really strange was the glow emanating from it—greens, yellows, reds, and magentas. It was a rainbow of sorts, but it’s not.

I saw a sunset with mild green tones at Ilocos Norte’s Kapurpurawan Rock Formation before, but I have absolutely never seen anything like this one.

Iridescent clouds, I later learned. According to Wikipedia, it’s “a diffraction phenomenon caused by small water droplets or small ice crystals individually scattering light.” Alrighty. I like its other monikers better, cloud rainbows and fire clouds.

After a while, the glow faded.

And we went back to the table for a second helping of San Antonio Resort’s seafood pasta.
