Hooked on Island Cove!

After visiting a few relatives in Kawit, Cavite, my whole family was treated to a fun-filled outing in the area as they brought the clan all over the most famous tourist spots. Of course, a bubbly cousin shared her knowledge on their hometown along the way. The name, Kawit, is derived from the Tagalog word kawit (hook) which is suggestive of its location at the base of a hook-shaped shoreline along Manila Bay extending to the tip of Cavite City. Kawit is the birthplace of Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the Republic of the Philippines. It is also the location of his home, the Aguinaldo Shrine, where independence from Spain was declared on June 12, 1898.

Our last stop for that Saturday was the Island Cove Resort and Leisure Park which is a 12-hectare island sanctuary in Cavite. When coming from Manila, it is a breezy 25-minute drive from the tree-lined Roxas Boulevard. Pass the scenic Coastal Road, and you will arrive at Binakayan town in Kawit, Cavite and onto the Island Cove Resort. It sheltered an environment of convenience and ease, laid back in elegance and warm suburban Asian hospitality. With over 130 rooms ranging from hotel suites to deluxe rooms, from simple units to duplex structures, each room is complete with air-conditioning units, refrigerator, a safety deposit box and also comes with a telephone for room service and outside connections. The stay at Island Cove was a refreshing way to end the Kawit Tour—or so we thought.

My cousins and I totally relaxed and laidback in our rooms while the children enjoyed the bubbling and bustling adventures of the water park with the various pools, inflatables and exciting slides. There are also other outdoor options for basketball, bicycle rentals, fishing, horse riding/rental, and kayaking with additional fees. We also discovered that we can indulge in a pampering treatment at the resort's full-service spa, Island Spa. Services include massages, facials, body wraps, and body scrubs. The spa is equipped with a sauna. A variety of treatment therapies are provided, including aromatherapy. Then we capped off the day with a drink at the bar, complete with a selection of imported wines and spirits.

My two kids really enjoyed at Oceania Water Park. The buffet breakfast at Sangley Point is very good with very accommodating staff since we were a big, rowdy group. The Island Grill serves only the best lunch and dinner buffet, specially prepared for distinct taste buds. Fruits in season are turned into a sparkling shakes and refreshing juices.

Upon check-out, the front desk staff was very helpful to us when asked more about the hotel-resort, and they boast of elegant and fully- equipped seminar halls and function rooms to handle all types and sizes of meetings. From conferences and banquets, be it for a private tea party, a convention for a thousand persons or even cocktail receptions for 2,000 guests, they claim they have had serviced special affairs complete with lights and sounds facilities. 

As a whole, the Island Cove Leisure Park provided an abundant set of memories for my clan, of kids and adults alike.

Villa Alfredo’s Resort

A Paradise resort in Pampanga...

They say that Villa Alfredo’s Resort is the paradise at the heart of Pampanga, and they could not have been more right. Sited in San Fernando, Pampanga, which is smack dab in the city, Villa Alfredo’s Resort is hailed the most stylish garden resort. I would have never thought to take a vacation in Pampanga until I saw an ad online for it and I decided, why not? And that why not became a wonderful opportunity to experience a comfortable stay amidst the lush tropical gardens, teeming with exotic flora and fauna.

Slide ‘til You Drop at Splash Island!

Not all water theme parks are created equal. Splash Island offers something thrilling for everyone at any stage in life.
Splash Island Rates,Reviews

Located at Southwoods Ecocentrum in Binan, Laguna, my wonderful experience at Splash Island started when we saw some Metrodeal promo on Facebook.  Our package was five day passes free with every purchase of five passes. What a deal! So all four adults, and six kids with ages ranging from 10-16 years, got into a van for this late outing to Laguna.

A short getaway to Antipolo Star Resort


Antipolo Star Resort would be my recommendation to you if you want to escape from the heat and noise of the Manila but you have only limited time, it would be a fabulous spot for a short getaway to unwind and relax. It is in Antipolo’ east end, located at 25km away from Manila.  It is really convenient and doesn’t need you to burn off your pocket for a budget to escape because it is just an hour away from buzz of the city! We were looking for someplace to chill and relax during weekend when we made the business trip to Manila. We got a good picture of the resort from its official website and it didn’t disappoint us when we checked it out.

Getting to Antipolo Star Resort

Antipolo is accessible by jeepney or FX taxi. It is very easy to get in there by commuting on Jeepney from terminals in Metro Manila. To feel more like a local, we got in there just by jeepney. To go by car or by taxi will just take about an hour following on the navigation.

Unwind and Relax

They have the first saltwater swimming pool in a resort in Philippines. What so special about it?  Yeah, no more sore eyes or skin allergies after swimming. According to the staff, the salts are imported from Australia and it makes the pool like a healthy spa which can help to soften skin and hairs. There are three pools in the resort. One adult with 4 to 5 ft, and another two kid pools with 1 to 2 and 2 to 3 ft. There are three large waterfalls and five big mushroom shades with fountains on top. Chilled by the poolside and surrounded by the overlooking views which I loved the most.
The resort is the 3000 square meters of manicured lawn. I lay down on the lawn and enjoyed the overlooking view of Sierra Madre range of mountains and the endless vista of views over the rice fields of Teresa. It was splendid and breathtaking! The cooling breeze was so refreshing and comfy. You can just take Instagram-worthy photos easily.
They have different size of Kubo, Pavilion and Gazebo which would be perfect to accommodate a lot of people from 10 pax to 75 pax. It is suggested for group activities like company teambuilding or friends and family gathering. There is a “Sawali Stage” which you rock and sing like a star. I think it would be best if you come in a group with family or friends to spend the day at its finest.

Kabayan Beach Resort Batangas Review
Affordable Batangas Beach Resort

An unplanned road trip is always a great way to unwind and shake off the stresses of Manila.

A friend of mine recently bought a new car and wanted to take it for a road test. Deciding on just a day trip to Batangas the following Saturday, and with no idea where in Batangas we would be going, I excitedly packed up a few things for swimming that Friday night.

So three of my friends, plus my girls, left at around 9:00AM for the long drive to Batangas. Expecting slow-moving traffic along the way, we also loaded on some burgers, chips, and drinks to keep the trip bearable, but the journey was faster than we really anticipated. Maybe also due to the gloomy weather that day, traffic along the highway was light and breezy. In no time, we were having brunch at a quaint store in Lipa City as we tried to keep costs at the minimum.

We kindly requested for some affordable resort recommendations from the store owners, and Kabayan Beach Resort seemed the most attractive, given our budget of P400/head. They also provided simple directions on how to get there, since the resort is a local favorite spot for family day tours. After an hour of driving, passing by Padre Garcia Public Market, Rosario Junction, and San Juan Town Proper, and another 20 minutes traversing Laiya Road led us to Kabayan Beach Resort.

Now if first impressions really stick, then this resort’s aesthetic reeks of the native sense of beauty and hospitality. Welcomed by accommodating staff, we were charged P100/adult with the additional P1,500 for a nipa hut and included access to the beach, the fastfood area and the Pavilion. With the strong drizzle and overcast skies overhead, we opted to hang around the pool area for an additional P100/head.  It might be a little bit over our estimated budget but watching over the kids under a roof was a greater convenience than the rainy alternative.

Now being into the consulting business that I am, I decided to scope out the place for areas where outdoor teambuilding activities can be done. Their office staff assisted me with the ocular and there were many options there with their special packages for group functions. Thus, they will definitely be on my list for recommendations for these types of programs.

Beach Resort in Laiya Batangas

Probing into their history, they said that they started as a private rest house of the owners, when friends requested to rent it out. Seeing the potential, they started with the name Laplaya Beach Resort, and is now called Kabayan to create a friendlier and localized atmosphere. Today, equipped with modern-day accommodations like air-conditioning and cable TV, their hotel-like rooms and cottages can house more than a hundred pax at full occupancy, and are inspired by the native furniture and design components.  

The whole experience of Kabayan was pleasant and would become highly recommended for both day trips and overnight stays. Friendly staff, clean and safe premises plus a wide array of things to do there, I am definitely going back. It became a very homey spin to an on-a-budget road trip.
