Concerns about mammoth complex within Boracay

SMC arrange for Caticlan and also Boracay within 2015

By Ellen Tordesillas

It’s only February and that we are now sensation the beginning of summer.

It’s now time to look for budget provides from airlines and also out-of-town accommodations.

Boracay is a logical destination for us because the place in Antique is simply three hours away by bus towards the popular island.

A current Facebook post by the peripatetic Teddy Montelibano upon Boracay on the plan of San Miguel Corporation to develop Boracay makes it compelling for all of us enjoy Boracay right now.

Teddy’s write-up was from the FB page of the state of Aklan boasting from the “Country’s biggest resort and coliseum to increase at Boracay Airport terminal Complex. ”

The actual project which had at least Chief executive Aquino as guest once the renovated Caticlan airport was inaugurated in 06 last year is usually to be undertaken through TransAire Development Holding Corp., the subsidiary associated with San Miguel Corp.

The state release mentioned: “Once the Boracay Airport complex spanning Caticlan and Nabas within Aklan becomes fully functional over the years to come, a number of its structures will certainly set Philippine records regarding sheer size. And for environmental friendliness.

“The many imposing structure within this $300 million airport complex will be the mammoth 5, 200 room budget-hotel. When completed, this resort will be the largest budget hotel within the Philippines. It will also become the largest hotel in the nation, and also probably in all associated with S.e. Asia…

“Room rates at the budget-hotel are expected to range from P1, 200 to P2, 200 per night. The actual rates compare favorably to budget room rates upon Boracay and are, therefore , clearly affordable regarding inbound tourists. The actual budget-hotel is intended to help decongest Boracay, which is flooded along with about a million tourists this year and probably up to three million in the next few years…

“The planned dome-shaped convention center will be able to seat up to twenty five, 000 persons, or 10, 000 more persons that the Wise Araneta Coliseum within Cubao, Quezon Town in Metro Manila. It will become both country’s largest convention center and its biggest indoor arena.

“The new terminal building would be the ‘greenest’ terminal building within the Philippines. The large windows will permit the free circulation of fresh air through the entire building thereby decreasing the need for substantial air-con.

“It will certainly derive part of the electricity from solar panels; will use a rainwater collection system and will have its very own wastewater treatment grow. ”

I seriously doubt the stability of five, 000-room budget resort in Caticlan where you have to take the ferry boat to go to seaside. But that is Ramon Ang’s problem.

I am more concerned about the impact of thousands much more tourists in an already over-burdened and much-abused island.

Article writer Clinton Palanca did his / her math and gave us a scary scenario associated with Boracay if that giant of a hotel project succeeds: “ When the 5000 rooms are usually filled with two persons each, that’s 10, 000 people in addition those staying at accommodations in Boracay. Whitened Beach is 4. 5 kilometers lengthy. If these people did nothing but take a seat on the beach, they might be two heavy in a space a split meter wide for each individual. ”

Teddy Montelibano painted a scarier image: “They’d all possess breakfast in Caticlan after that go across Boracay and also, like meerkats within the Life of Pi, cover the entire length of Whitened Beach, from north to southern. ”

The actual project is anticipated to be completed in 2015. We now have only two years to enjoy what remains from the once- splendid Boracay.
