Ycasa Villas: A Serene Tropical Escape in La Union

San Juan, La Union is steadily becoming the northern counterpart of the bustling Boracay—without the white sand, but with the almost same nightlife and crowds, especially during long weekends.

If you’re planning a trip to the Surfing Capital of the North but prefer a quiet place to retreat after a long drive and a night of partying, you should book a stay at Ycasa Villas.

Ycasa Villas is a serene tropical sanctuary tucked in San Juan, La Union. It is quite the hidden gem because it’s quite modest size-wise from the outside, but you’d be surprised that the property actually has three spacious villas that can accommodate up to 4 people.

The best part is that each villa has its own private plunge pool!

We got to stay in their Loft-style Master Villa for our quick trip to La Union. This villa can comfortably accommodate groups of 4 people. There are two super comfortable queen-sized beds in the villa—one on the ground floor and one in the loft where you can also find a smart TV.

The ground floor is so spacious! There’s a dining area, an electric kettle, a refrigerator, and a wardrobe.

The best thing about this villa, though, is the sliding glass doors on one side of the villa that opens directly to your very own plunge pool.

The plunge pool is chest deep which is perfect for refreshing dips, especially in the scorching heat of the summer. There’s also a private deck where you can lounge around and chill after a long night of partying in Surftown.

The Main Villa offers more than enough space for a family, but if you’re in La Union for a romantic getaway, you should check out their one-bedroom suite.

This romantic suite also has a queen-sized bed with direct access to the private plunge pool. And if you want an extra relaxing stay, you can also enjoy the bathtub in the suite and their loft villa (also good for 4 pax).

Your stay also includes a hearty and delicious complimentary Filipino breakfast from The Coffee Library, one of their many sister companies in Surftown.

And of course, you can also enjoy the beaches of San Juan when you stay in Ycasa Villas. It may not be beachfront, but it’s only a minute’s walk away from the shore. A huge bonus: the beach is quiet, serene, and definitely not crowded. Plus, it’s only a few minutes’ drive to Urbiztondo where most of the food spots and parties are located.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and quiet space to enjoy San Juan, La Union, Ycasa Villas is your tropical sanctuary.

Room rates start at PHP 8,000/night. Book via their social media pages.
