To hold a wedding reception in Palmas del Mar or to make Palmas your home while in Bacolod is to experience a little of how it is to be the guest of one of the sugar industry's most prestigious families.
The Lizareses were among the first to establish mechanized sugar mills in the island. So successful was the clan's matriarch, Enrica Alunan Lizares Tana Dicang as a sugar planter and investor that in time, her family had controlling interest in three sugar centrals, Talisay-Silay, Bacolod Murcia, and Danao. The family's ancestral home, the Balay ni Tana Dicang http://balaytanadicang.webs.com in Talisay City, is a classic Spanish-Filipino Bahay na Bato that was constructed in the early 1880s but which is today the oldest and best preserved ancestral home in the province.
Dr. Antonio A. Lizares, one of Enrica's 17 children, was the original owner of the Palmas del Mar property. He was a governor of the province, the founder of what is now the University of Negros Occidental Recoletos, the owner of several sugar plantations, and a philanthropist who gave generously to the church and the community.
Palmas is managed by the grandchildren of Antonio: John Marie S. Lizares as President, Ronnie A.Lizares as general manager, Rocky A. Lizares as Treasurer, Andrea Lizares Si as member of the Executive Committee, and representatives of the families of Heriberto and Vicente Lizares as directors.
In the manner of our great-grandmother, Enrica, the corporation that owns Palmas del Mar carefully invests a substantial portion of earnings back into the property, making it possible for guests to always look forward to new developments within the resort. Because success never comes alone, John Marie and the heirs of Heriberto Lizares also developed Pacific Shores http://pacificshores-ph.com, an upscale seaside resort community in the Lizares hometown of Talisay.
With good management and the Lizares brand of hospitality, the Palmas del Mar success story should remain a bright light in the province's tourism and hotel industry for many many years to come.
