ThunderBird Resorts Philippines: Poro Point San Fernando, La Union Hotel

By on August 7, 2010


Recently, I was invited by Thunderbird Resorts Philippines to come check out their Mediterranean-inspired architecture at Poro Point. The Thunderbird Resorts Philippines’ San Fernando, La Union hotel!

It was a wonderful three day stay for me and my friends! The resort itself was very beautiful and seemed like the ideal place to have the best rest and relaxation sessions of your life! I was told that weddings and company retreats are also very common here, but most often, guests come to relax and get away from the crazy busy city life.

Here’s an except from theirsite:

Discover the exotic charm and majestic beauty of Thunderbird Resorts’ first destination in Asia: the island archipelago of the Philippines. With our two integrated luxury resort venues in the highland oasis of Rizal and in the Mediterranean-inspired peninsula of Poro Point, you can live your dream – and live it spectacularly.

Leisure, business, travel, recreation: no matter the purpose of your visit, book your stay at Thunderbird Resorts, and you’ll get that delightful feeling of not wanting to be elsewhere. Be charmed by the inspired, mood-setting architecture of our resorts. Embrace the pleasures of modern comfort and privilege that we offer. Indulge in our smorgasbord of international cuisine and innovative dining. Enjoy our world-class service, and then be surprised by the warmth of local hospitality. Delight at the scenic, dreamy views of nature, and be thrilled by the vibrancy of nightlife and entertainment.

We invite you to Thunderbird Resorts Philippines. It’s an invitation to an experience of luxury, set amid the tropical havens.

 

Overall, it was a great experience! The rooms were clean and I love their beds and how it just seemingly made me melt into them. In the room was also a nice flat screen television and WiFi access throughout the Thunderbird Resort. There was an amazing view from the patio.

The bathroom was beautiful and clean. Best of all, it was really spacious. Unfortunately, the rainfall shower was broken in my room and they weren’t able to fix it before I left so I wasn’t quite able to enjoy the very spacious bathroom as much as I had hoped. I’m sure it would have been a very relaxing shower had it worked.

Oh and did I mention the extra cool stuff at the resort? They had everything from an 18 hole golf course to a giant pool with a pool bar!

Also, do try out the restaurant “Olives” within the Thunderbird Resort. The breakfast buffet was great and we also tried some wood-fired / brick oven pizza for lunch which tasted great.

Most of all, you really need to just come here to relax and melt your stress away. The amazing sceneries, the breathtaking architecture, the serene surroundings and pretty much a complete package of serenity will surely make you wash away any worries.

So next time, When In Manila, take a relaxing trip out of town to Poro Point San Fernando, La Union and stay at the Thunderbird Resorts! Do try out their golf course, swim in their pool, appreciate their Greek / Mediterranean style architecture or just come to relax. Oh and I’ll also share with you our city tour that Thunderbird Resorts took us on in a later post.
