Fundacion Pacita is one of the best boutique hotels in the Philippines. A Batanes experience is not complete without enjoying the "Wuthering Heights" ambiance of Fundacion Pacita — it is located on top of a cliff with a 270-degree view of the sea, mountains and the sky. Also, at this time of the year, this is one of the only places where you can feel it's "winter" in a tropical paradise like the Philippines.

Let me give you a photo tour of the Terrace View Suites so you can visually experience Fundacion Pacita Batanes…

Premium Terrace Suite


This is the best view from the "honeymoon" suite of Fundacion Pacita. It is located outside the main boutique hotel.

Outside the Premium Terrace Suite is the garden dedicated to the patriarch of the Abad family.

The first two terrace suites are built beside the Premium Terrace Suite. (Caution: You can hear the muffled voices in the adjacent terrace suites.)

Terrace Suite #2 (back-to-back with Terrace Suite #1)


This view is in between the Premium Terrace Suite and Terrace Suite #1.

Terrace Suite #3: Upper Sunrise Suite


There are two rooms at the main dining area level. The first one on the left is the Sunrise Terrace Suite.


One queen-sized bed. Maximum of two occupants. With view deck.


For me, this is the best terrace suite because you wake up to the awesome view of the sunrise!

Terrace Suite #4: Upper Sunset Suite

 
On the right of the main dining area level is the Sunset Terrace Suite.


One queen-sized bed. Maximum of two occupants. With view deck.


This room has a magnificent view since it is a corner room.

Family Terrace Suite: Lower Corner and Sunrise Suite


The next best room is the lower Sunrise Family Terrace Suite.


One queen-sized bed and one single bed. Maximum of three occupants. With view deck.


Next to the Family Terrace Suite is the Luxury Terrace Suite and Terrace Suite #5.

Luxury Terrace Suite

There's a Main Suite and an Adjacent Suite to be found here.


Main Suite Terrace View. Very spacious. This is where Pacita Abad used to paint.


The Main Suite has a king-sized bed.


The Main Suite bathroom.


The Adjacent Suite View.


The Adjacent Suite has three to four single beds. You have to pass through here to get to the Main Suite.


The Adjacent Suite bathroom.

Terrace Suite #5: Lower Corner Sunset Suite

 
This is the last Terrace Suite — found at the lower corner with a sunset view.


One queen-sized bed. Maximum of two occupants. With view deck.


It has its own cute little door. Good for a family with kids.


From Terrace Suite #5, you can go down all the way to the beach. 🙂

Family Loft 

 
One queen-size bed with option of a single bed. Maximum of three occupants. No view deck.


It is not enclosed and it overlooks the main dining area. It can get quite noisy in the morning. This is where the tour guides usually stay. There's no air-con except for fans.


The bathroom here is quite small but it has its own bathtub.
