How to Get to Sampaguita Gardens Resort in Aklan

Ttrip from Kalibo to the town of New Washington just about 20 minutes away on mostly breezy beach and seascapes along the way. There are even resort-like restaurants by the roadside Hire a tricyle from Aklan International Airport us that this strip of highway only gets busy when there are the big passenger ships arriving from or departing for Manila, There are even 2 seaports in this town that is only about 10 kilometers from Kalibo. You must not miss it if you are to take a vacation at Boracay. Its just a 1- 2-hour ride from Caticlan to New Washington, Kalibo. Another thing that makes your visit or vacation at the resort so overwhelming is the warm treatment of their staff. Even if you are just an ordinary person entering the resort, you are very well accommodated and assisted by their staff.

The Precious Moments Gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Other Galleries are currently being developed to add to the many interesting and very educational amenities of Sampaguita Gardens.  onder how come there is anything like this in such a remote town like New Washington. There is even the Italian-styled “Sir Sam’s Ristoranti” which we learned generally serves as the breakfast area for the resort’s guests. But a portion in the area also serves as front desk and business center. A very nice place for both young and old.

Sampaguita Gardens Resort in New Washington, Kalibo Aklan

To ask what else can I see in and around Kalibo since I was about to go heading to Antique that time. I was gladly told of many things, and Sampaguita Gardens was one of them. Sampaguita Gardens was originally owned by an American named Samuel Butcher, the creator of Precious Moments artworks. Mr. Butcher, who owns Precious Moments Park in Carthage, Missouri, put his ideas into action in December 2001 and in June 2003, the resort began commercial operations. There are gardens everywhere. And they’re all well-maintained. Figurines and statues dot the gardens. Two life-sized horses made of bronze by the entrance to what they call the oriental garden are a fantastic photo-op.
