Start the year right at the Taal Vista Hotel, yes?
So we survived another year, and it’s time to look towards another year of fun and travel. I don’t really have anything major planned for 2013 yet, but I’m hoping to start it off with a relaxing weekend at Tagaytay, at the Taal Vista Hotel. Have you made plans yet?
Le Monet in Baguio
You can head up to Baguio, and experience first-hand how cold it can get in the mountains in January. Check out this deal for the Le Monet Hotel in Camp John Hay: overnight stay for two for only Php 3,850, inclusive of buffet breakfast.
Playa Tropical in Ilocos Norte
Looking for someplace farther? How about Ilocos Norte? Work on your tan by the beach, visit the Paoay Church, eat poque-poque pizza and inkalti at Saramsam, marvel at the Kapurpurawan Rock and the Bangui Windmills, and re-enact scenes from Temptation Island at the Paoay or La Paz Sand Dunes. After all that, you can take a rest and get massages at Playa Tropical in Currimao, where you can get a room for five with its own private pool for only Php 7,800. Not bad, eh?
Peacock Garden in Bohol
If you want to head down to the Visayas, the Peacock Garden Resort and Spa has an enticing offer for Php 11,400, where in you get 3 days and 2 nights in a Deluxe Sea View Room, which includes breakfast for two, 30-minute massages, and round trip transfers to and from Tagbilaran airport.
Sumilon Island in Cebu
I am likewise enticed with the Sumilon Island package: 3 days and 2 nights in a deluxe room, daily breakfast, roundtrip airport transfers, and discounts at their restaurants. I guess I’m just antsy for a beach trip.
Arena Island in Palawan
You can also go all out and head to a private island in Palawan. Arena Island in Narra is offering 3 days and 2 nights stay in one of only two casitas in the island. The package includes full board meals (3 full meals and 2 snacks), roundtrip transfers to and from Puerto Princessa airport, your own personal staff (your own bulter! Cook! Masseuse!), and use of all amenities and activities (including snorkeling, turtle interaction, fishing, kayaking, tree house and floating veranda). Package price is Php 34,000. Quite a sum, but it’s an amazing deal as the original price is Php 60,000!
Hard case luggage from Segue
If you’re on the hunt for a new luggage to use on your 2013 travels, check out these awesome 3-piece luggage sets from Benetton and Segue. Hard case, four multi-directional wheels, and lightweight. I want these!
Looking forward to Cintai Corito in Batangas
I’ve already made my purchase from Deal Grocer’s Christmas Collection and I am looking forward to redeeming it next year: a Terrace Villa stay for four at Cintai Corito’s Garden in Batangas. Balinese décor, four swimming pools (four!), and peacocks wandering around the garden…it’s going to be one lovely weekend.
