This Stylish Escape has the BEST View of Patar Beach in Bolinao!


Poolside at Veue Beach Cabins in Bolinao

One of my primary travel mottos is that you needn’t a plane ticket for a grand holiday. We’re quite lucky that in a country as beautiful as ours, island getaways don’t necessarily require booking a flight – possibly a fair amount of time on the road, yes, but when the scenery is as rewarding as the one we’ve just witnessed on our latest trip, we’re sure you too would agree the long ride was worth it.


Gorgeous sunset!!!


Patar beach a few steps away from our cabins.


Six hours from Manila, at the remote end of Patar White Beach in Bolinao, you’ll find Veue Beach Cabins. Six stylishly compact cabins set against Bolinao’s famous white beach, and home to breath-takingly stunning sunsets (and you know me, I’m picky with my sunsets.) With its nonexistent mobile reception and apparent scarcity of tourists, this place literally allows you the luxury of “getting away from it all.”


Location/Getting There

Veue is at the very end of the Patar White Beach resort trail, accessible from up a rocky hill, and about an hour away from the Hundred Islands national park in Alaminos, Pangasinan. It’s currently the last property on the border of Patar, which consequentially guarantees you a crowd-free beach, and a secluded spot to lounge and relax as you wish.


We had to learn the hard way that the best route to take was by the main highway passing the towns of Sual, Alaminos and Bani, all the way up to Patar Road. Whatever you do, DO NOT take any left turn except on the Saturnino-Camiguin road, lest you’d like to end up on a rocky dirt road that can be a pain to drive through. Detailed directions (with helpful tips!) can be found on Veue’s website here. (https://www.veue.ph/#!contact/c127u)



Our cabin, the “Kiukok House,” was named after National Artist Ang Kiukok.


Minimal, modern and tastefully industrial – Veue’s bungalows stick out like a sore thumb against Patar Beach’s tropical setting, which I think makes it all the more appealing. The bungalows’ exposed concrete finish and sharp angles offer a stark contrast to the lush greenery surrounding it, while warm ambient lighting, iron-wrought chandeliers and light wood furniture soften its interiors. It’s also pretty cool that each cabin is named after a renowned national artist!


In each cabin hangs a painting of the artist it was named after.


Their spacious cabins afforded us lots of room to lounge and relax


The beach right outside our house!


I love compact, functional spaces that have everything you could possibly need available, and that’s exactly what Veue’s vacation home rentals offer. All 55-metre cabins are exactingly identical, each having a living area, dining area, cable TV, a king-sized bed, bathroom, and offer unobstructed views of the sea from their floor-to-ceiling windows. The couch in the living area can be converted into a cozy day bed for two, allowing a maximum of four guests per cabin.


Our cabin also included a toilet and bath with hot and cold showers, towels and toilettries.


The cabins also house kitchens complete with a full-sized refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, cooking utensils, and a dining set for four. We had absolutely no trouble preparing and cooking our own meals during our stay, and highly suggest you do the same. You could even request the staff to prepare an outdoor grill to cook your food with.

Overall, Veue Beach Cabins offered a truly relaxing stay. The lack of mobile reception and Internet forces you to disconnect with your gadgets and social media, and gives you the opportunity to really take in the sights around you. This also makes it the ideal place to bond with friends, family and loved ones.
