|Cabanatuan Secret Paradise|
All manner of traveler's tales talk about how one resort outdoes the other. But for a while, seeing one is pretty much like seeing them all, and the thrill is totally and completely gone. But in the case of Tabon Fish Pool, a family resort in Cabanatuan, a welcome surprise awaits.

A canny play on words make "fish pool" a peaceful haven for calm water enthusiasts. Owned by a game fish hobbyist, life-sized statues of fishermen with their hooks and baits are strategically placed around the resort. The owner of this resort is also a traveler and found ideas on designs from his travels around the world. Also, since most of the times, he is not satisfied with the local resorts he has visited, he made one which will welcome him and act as his place of respite whenever he comes home.

This resort is all about water with four swimming pools - one is olympic sized, one is jacuzzi-like, one is for kids, while one has overhead sprinkler that mimics the rain. There are several interconnecting fishponds too where one can navigate using their fish pool bancas. And of-course, one may just sit down on several aisle in the pond and catch fresh water fishes that are abundant therein. This is truly a diversion from the plain rice fields that Cabanatuan is known for.

Tabon Fish Pool Resort is still a work-in progress but all the basic amenities are already in place. There are available rooms with their own bathrooms for those who wanted to stay the night. There are also several cottages and huts for day-trippers. Although it is not yet open to the public, this resort can cater to private affairs. For inquiries, you may visit their facebook page here.
And just for the sake of reminiscing, I have featured this place almost four years ago in this blog in a post entitled "Gone Fishing". How time flies and oh how the place changed drastically over the years. You may check out my post then here.
