Savannah: Over two decades of success in Iloilo

The charming lifestyle of the deep American South can be enjoyed in a sprawling community somewhere in the province of Iloilo.

Over 500 hectares of verdant land, spread over Oton, Pavia and San Miguel in the historic province of Panay Island, Savannah has evolved into an elegant new community with the vibe of the Southern State of Georgia in the United States.

It is a project of Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc., the listed integrated property developer, which is continuously finding new ways to fulfill one’s dreams in Iloilo. 

The stunning landmark destination is FIABCI’s Gold Winner for Masterplan Category 

Savannah, the flagship project of Vista Land in the Visayas and a prime example of the developer’s comprehensive style of integrated masterplanning, was recently hailed as the gold winner for the masterplan category in the recently held FIABCI Philippines Property and Real Estate Excellence Awards.

FIABCI is the French acronym for Fédération Internationale des Administrateurs de Bien-Conselis Immobiliers or The International Real Estate Federation. Founded in Paris in 1951, FIABCI is a worldwide organization that links thousands of real estate professionals. FIABCI holds the honor of being the only real estate association to obtain NGO special consultative status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Members of the judging committee for these esteemed awards include international real estate professionals and experts qualifying the well-rounded criteria of functionality, financial considerations, environmental impact, and community benefits.

Savannah has beguiled the gentle Ilonggos for over two decades, becoming the place where they chose to build their dream homes. Its grand entrance welcomes residents with a wide tree-lined avenue to a graceful rotunda that connects The Crest, The Trails, The Glades, The Glen, and The Orchard—the development’s five residential communities.  

Savannah’s property valuation has exponentially increased since it opened in September 2000.  It is expected to increase further with the introduction of its new plans of development.

Beyond these five residential enclaves and the amenities each offers, the property has its own school, the Georgia International Academy. Homeowners can walk their kids to school, enjoying an encouraging chat along the way. And with classmates who are also their neighbors, they can create friendships that will last a lifetime.  

Beside Georgia International Academy is its famous FIFA-standard football field—a tribute to the Ilonggos’ love for football.  It was inaugurated in 2012 by the Azkals’ James and Phil Younghusband, who taught aspiring young football players basic techniques of the game.  

Close by is St. Pio Church, a place of worship for Savannah homeowners and its neighboring residents. Within Savannah is the sprawling Vista Mall with its retail shops, restaurants, as well as service establishments. 

At the  Pavia and Oton entrances of Savannah are centrally located transport terminals with shuttle service units that move residents quickly and easily to wherever they need to go within the property and outside.

Everything in Savannah is designed to cater to the daily needs of the homeowners.  The facilities and amenities are all so close to home—it’s like one never has to leave the house for immediate needs. 

The development also houses a community service and utilities center, efficient property management, and roving security, and in line with Vista Land’s thrust toward sustainable building—a materials recovery facility that segregates and recycles garbage.

Conveniently located, Savannah—Iloilo’s destination city—sits on the edge of Iloilo, allowing residents access to the business and commercial centers of the urban capital.  This means easy access to the province’s and Panay Island’s hospitals, schools, government centers, churches, and  financial hubs.  

With over four decades of experience in building homes and communities all over the country, Camella has allowed over 500,000 Filipinos in 47 provinces, and 149 cities and municipalities achieve their dream of owning a home that they can truly be proud of.
