Year 2015 has just started and really eyeing for a more memorable trips all throughout the year. To start off my journey, this January, together with my seven craziest friends, we spent a lavish weekend staycation in a world class private beach resort community, called Hamilo Coast. The resort is a sprawling seaside sanctuary located at the head of the Nasugbu coastline which is just a 90 minutes away from Manila through Ternate – Nasugbu Road.

Hamilo Coast is an expansive 5,900 hectare property with 13 coves, a 31 kilometer coastline, rich marine life and abundant flora and fauna. One of the properties of Hamilo Coast is Pico de Loro Cove which is a 40-hectare “Residential Resort Village” and is the first development in the “Premier Sustainable Coastal Resort Town” of Hamilo Coast. Pico de Loro Cove is one of several marine protected areas in Hamilo Coast where marine life is preserved and enhanced in partnership with the World Wide Fund (WWF) for Nature Philippines since 2007.

As we entered to the vast property, I really feel that our weekend staycation is going to be a great experience and a lot of fun.

Pico Sands Hotel

It was late afternoon when we arrived at the Pico Sands Hotel, a tropical contemporary seven – storey hotel with 154 spacious guest rooms amidst the stunning backdrop of the mountains and the serene lagoon. The hotel provides accommodations primarily for the members of the Pico de Loro Beach & Country Club and their endorsed guests

A warm welcome was given to us by the friendly staff and immediately assisted us to the reception where checking - in is efficient. The reception area gave us the impression of opulence; the palette used is so cool to the eyes and brought up an ambiance of peacefulness.  

Our group checked in at Lagoon View Premier Deluxe room, each room has a balcony that window an amazing view of the lush green mountains and lagoon. Average room size is 37 meters and well designed. The room has two queen size beds and equipped with basic facilities and of course an access to wi - fi.  Complimentary fruits and slice of chocolate cake added a nice welcome to the guests. Check out promo rates here

Right after we placed our belongings and checked the rooms, we proceeded to Pico Restaurant and Bar for a snacks. Just when we thought it’s gonna be a very lite snacks, it turned out a full regular meal for us. Since the restaurant specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, we had a pasta and pizza, all were mouth-watering and really delicious.

Breakfast at Lagoa Restaurant and Pool Bar

The following morning, we woke up around 8:00 to catch the breakfast buffet at Lagoa, a restaurant located at the Country Club. Friends who have been here bragged about the breakfast. Truly, the fusion of Asian and Western cuisine was really good. Dining outside the restaurant with the overlooking of the infinity swimming pool added an overwhelming treat. I couldn't wait to finish my food to dip in the pool. 

Lunch at Sun Coral Cafe (Members Only)

After satisfying plunge in the country Club pool, we roamed around the lagoon area, had a quick shoot and went straight to Sun Coral Cafe for have our lunch. Our group had a feast over these delicious Filipino food made specially for the members of the club. Suggested to the group to have kare-kare and it didn't fail us, so flavorful.
