Just a year ago, SM Iloilo opened their mall extension, giving Ilonggos more reasons to shop at the biggest mall in Western Visayas. Last November 11 ( Friday), SM City Iloilo opened another area of the ever growing mall with Southpoint – your new favorite hang out in Iloilo!
Open and Park-Like
We all know that Philippines’ doesn’t care about our wide open spaces and we definitely lack clean and safe parks. The opening was graced by no other than Hans Sy and during our “ambush” interview, he shared that he wanted Southpoint to have an ” open-park” feel and to make use of their vast space.
I just love the idea. We need to appreciate space, the outdoors, and enjoy the therapeutic green hue. Southpoint has well manicured lawn, complete with a fountain area.
At this digital age, we need more green spaces. Have you noticed how rapid Iloilo’s development has been in recent years?
Hans Sy also revealed that they will be building a Park Inn hotel in Iloilo that will be connected from Southpoint. Hello, Staycation!
Iloilo is a foodie paradise and SM wants to celebrate that with Southpoint. Southpoint is a place where you can enjoy great food and company even beyond mall hours. Restaurants at Southpoint closes at 10pm and with SM’s core values, diners can avoid those rowdy drunkards we often meet in restaurants closing late at night.
One of the restaurants to dine at Southpoint in Jaime’s Steak Room. I will be blogging about this new restaurant in Iloilo soon.
Christmas is coming and if you have friends coming to Iloilo, enjoy Southpoint with family-friendly restaurants or just to enjoy the area. It’s a nice place to walk around even with kids in tow.
Congratulations to SM City Iloilo for this new addition and for bringing something new to the Ilonggo shoppers. Hang out and enjoy Southpoint!
