Discovering Thunderbird Resorts at Poro Point La Union

Posted by on Jul 29, 2010 in Art & Photography, Featured, Pilipinas, Travel | 10 comments

This has probably been one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had.  It must be the scenic view, the clean facade, the ocean, the trees,the green grass and the many facilities that made my stay so pleasurable.  If you too are looking for a relaxing getaway and you want to get out of the city, then this place is just for you. It was really good for me to experience this kind of luxury away from the city.

Thunderbird Resorts is inspired by Mediterranean architecture.  It is like being in Santorini Greece and you just need to drive 5 to 6 hours away from the city. When we went there, it was sunny by day and but it rained during the afternoons.  I didn’t mind though, the weather just made me want to chill and relax more.  It made me want to sleep and forget the city buzz.  For what its worth, just looking outside the veranda overlooking the sea and the pool is just therapeutic enough.

I can’t really say enough how I loved being there.  You have to experience it for yourself.  The rooms are around Php 5,000 a night which is really not bad for a relaxing luxurious getaway.  It includes breakfast for two (which is also lovely to blog about it next).

Anyway, there’s more to love about this resort.  If you want a day trip you can also ask for them to tour you around the city for P 850 net per person on the weekdays and P 950 net per person on weekends.  This is also good for day trips I believe and in this case, the package includes the use of the pool and food and beverage consumables worth P500.  I’m like “OMG cheap and good!”  This promo is only happening from April 5 to September 30, 2010 though and reservations are recommended. City trip includes the Pindangan Ruins, La Union Botanical Gardens and the Ma Cho Temple which is next in my blog post queue so do come back and subscribe 🙂
