Tucked away in a quiet beach just outside the busy town of El Nido is a small family-owned resort that offers the perfect escape to a tranquil getaway in the island—intimate yet accessible with an awesome view to match and, quite possibly, the best and only swimmable beach in this side of town.
Maremegmeg Beach Club is the future of eco-luxury beachfront resorts in El Nido, Palawan!
I found myself on American soil, enjoying the very best that the island life has to offer, and it only took me a 3-hour flight from Manila.
That’s faster than learning how to say “Hafa Adai,” which means “Hello” in Chamorro, the native language of Guam, by the way.
So, what’s there to do in Guam?
To begin with, Guam is a U.S. island territory in Micronesia in Western Pacific or on the eastern side of the Philippines. It is famous for its tropical beaches, age-old customs and, of course, tax-free discounted goods from the States.
But aside from shopping, many religious Filipinos also frequent the island to learn more about its rich Catholic history, but more specifically, St. Pedro Calungsod.
The Crowne Plaza is a global brand and chain of business hotels managed by the IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) which includes its more famous sister brand, the Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts.
Much like the one in the Philippines, they cater mostly to business travelers and operate in almost every major city in the world. Their hotels are usually located in city centers, business districts or airports.
Built-in 2014, The Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is the first Crowne Plaza property in Manila. It is strategically located at the central business district of Ortigas Center, at the heart of Metro Manila in Pasig City.
Tucked away in the heart of Makati’s Central Business District, The Alpha Suites is possibly one of the most overlooked if not the best luxury serviced apartment in the city.
Offering a wide range of stylish, well-equipped suites that are more spacious and up-to-date than those of other neighboring luxury hotels, The Alpha Suites is not your typical staycation hotel in the block as it offers unbeatable value for such well thought out and designed interiors that millennials would surely enjoy.
Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.
I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.
Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.
On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.
The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.
