The town is rich in historical landmarks including the San Nicholas de Tolentino Church, the town hall which was built around 1734, the Baluarte Shrine and the Tree of Bondage.



In 2007, the new Iloilo International Airport, designed to serve Iloilo City and the rest of the province and the island, was built in Duyan-Duyan, Cabatuan.






The club site, also located in Cabatuan, Iloilo, is a 7-minute drive from the New Iloilo International Airport making it easily accessible to visiting members and guests, and made even more convenient with the club's airport-shuttle service.

One Madison Place Iloilo Bigger and Better! Preview of 2nd Condo Tower

One Madison Place Luxury Residences at the Iloilo Business Park is expanding due to strong demand for residential condominiums in Iloilo City.

One Madison Place is the first condo development by, real-estate giant, Megaworld Corporation in Iloilo.

Two months after pre-selling of condominium units at One Madison Place started, over 85% of the initial 156 condo units was already sold out. The highly successful sales performance prompted Megaworld to add a second 10-storey condo tower to its One Madison Place project.

The second condo tower (Tower 2) at One Madison Place will be built right beside first tower (Tower 1) along Megaworld Boulevard.

The building will have 10 floors with a total of 127 residential condominium units. Tower 2 will have less condo units but more spaces for recreational facilities. Each floor will have 15 to 16 luxury condo units.

P2-B W. Visayas Tourism Economic Zone to rise in Iloilo

The first Tourism Economic Zone in Western Visayas will soon rise in Cabatuan town in Iloilo with the whole project targeted to be fully operational by 2017.

An estimated P2 billion worth of investments will be poured into the four-phase Ilawod Courtyard and Country Club Project, with the first phase expected to be completed by next year.

Ilawod Estates Philippines, Inc. founder Teodorico E. Zaragoza said the project has been conceived years ago but it finally came into fruition with the endorsement of the Department of Tourism (DOT) to the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).

He said the 10-hectare development project has three components, namely: the country club, the 235-room hotel with capacity for expansion and the 2,500-capacity convention center.

He said the project is expected to provide at least 1,000 indirect jobs during the construction stage and some 600 jobs for the locals during the actual operation stage.

Zaragoza said the project is responsive to the tourism needs of the city and province of Iloilo and will address the gap between the number of rooms available and the number of tourists coming to Iloilo.

Citing the recent economic developments in Iloilo City, particularly the mushrooming residential areas, Zaragoza said the country club will be a place outside the city where the members and even guests can relax and spend some time with their families.

DOT Undersecretary Maria Victoria Jazmin and PEZA Director General Lilia De Lima, meanwhile, both lauded the Zaragozas for the undertaking.

Jasmin said there is no other opportune time to push through the project than now, noting the country’s bullish economy, the continuing increase of tourists visiting the country, and the number of investors who are willing to pour their investments in the Philippines.

De Lima, on her part, noted the number of jobs the tourism facility will create and vowed that the government, through the PEZA and DOT, will continue provide support for these development projects to promote “inclusive growth” which means the growth can be felt by all Filipinos.

Imagine the number of jobs this tourism will create, De Lima said. She also stressed that the hospitality and rich culture and history of Iloilo and the town of Cabatuan will be one of the come-ons that will lure more investors and financing institutions to support the project.

The project is expected to be fully-operational by 2017. Amenities in the country club will include café and restaurants, sports facilities, swimming pools, museum and library, aviary and animal ground, chapel, man-made lake, picnic ground, fitness trail, among others.

Aside from PEZA and DOT, the project was also endorsed by the Housing & Land Use Regulatory Board, Department of Trade and Industry, and the Sangguniang Bayan of Cabatuan.

Megaworld starts Iloilo Business Park project


Megaworld Corporation, the country’s #1 residential condominium and business process outsourcing (BPO) office developer, is set to break ground today, May 6, on its Iloilo Business

Park project.

The company is setting aside P2.5 billion initially over the next two years to develop the road network within the 54.5-hectare IT park and for the construction of Richmonde Hotel Iloilo and Richmonde Tower plus two more BPO office towers within this time frame. The first retail component of the project, Festive Walk, will be completed in the latter part of 2012, after which Megaworld is set to invest more to bankroll the development until 2020.

The site of the project is the former Iloilo Airport, which Megaworld acquired from the National Government in 2007 for P1.2 billion in cash.

“With our groundbreaking rites today, we affirm the strong business prospects of Iloilo City and the Western Visayas region in particular. The Iloilo Business Park is an important component of the BPO triangle I am envisioning that will make the Philippines an exciting and thriving BPO destination worldwide,” noted Megaworld Chairman and CEO Andrew Tan.

“The Iloilo Business Park marks the second leg of our BPO triangle after our two cyberparks in Metro Manila, with the final leg to be launched in the next few years. Together, these will give BPO investors strong prospects not just based on location but the human resource component as well. Early on, we decided to launch our BPO presence here considering that Ilonggos naturally have a pleasant vocal tone, are highly educated and are very hardworking,” the business tycoon continued.

The groundbreaking ceremonies for Richmonde Hotel Iloilo and Richmonde Tower mark the first projects to be started within the Iloilo Business Park. The 12-story hotel will host 90 guest rooms, ranging from superior rooms to junior suites. Its seventh-level amenities deck features play amenities such as a lap pool, children’s pool and fitness center, while the business center on the same level will include meeting rooms and a conference room. Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is the third project of Megaworld under this hotel brand. The hotel is projected to serve businessmen and tourists who flock annually to witness Iloilo City’s historic and colorful festivals.

The Richmonde Tower will occupy the second to sixth floors of the hotel, offering more than 9,000 square meters of prime office space for BPO locators. Both projects are slated for completion within the next two years.

Since the Iloilo Business Park was granted a certification by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority as an information technology (IT) park in January 2010, BPO locators at Richmonde

Tower will be entitled to exclusive perks such as income tax holidays, duty-free importation of office equipment and repatriation of earnings, among others.

At 54.5 hectares, Iloilo Business Park is the largest IT park yet of publicly-listed Megaworld Corporation, the country’s #1 business process outsourcing (BPO) office landlord. The master plan for the entire community includes hotels, BPO office towers, a convention center, a skills training center and retail components. With its premium brands, affordable boutiques and al fresco dining areas for restaurants, the two-kilometer retail and dining strip of Festive Walk is expected to become the next hip hangout for Iloilo’s youth and a vital tourist spot.

With its strong Work-Play-Learn components, Megaworld is projecting that Iloilo Business Park will fill more than 24,000 seats for the BPO sector, whereas its retail component will infuse more than 200,000 square meters of space for the commercial sector. All in all, Megaworld expects to help create about 40,000 new jobs within Iloilo City, thus helping spur up the local economy.
