The moment you land in Dipolog Airport, Zamboanga del Norte, you will be welcomed with an orchid lei while a van waits to whisk you off to a 45-minute ride to Villa Angelina Luxury Suites in the neighboring city of Dapitan.
Dapitan is known as the shrine city and the place of exile of the Philippine National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal.
Villa Angelina Luxury Suites is a resort located within the Dakak Park and Beach Resort of Taguilon, Dapitan City and is surrounded by its signature lush green forest. As you enter the Villa’s premises, wooden ranch style gates would open to a fountain courtyard that would be your entry to luxury, privacy, and intimacy.
Each secluded villa faces the 750-meter white sand beachfront of Dakak and its iconic rock wall, the gentle sea in its cove, the Sulu Sea, and the green mountains.
Your well-appointed villa has elegant yet subdued interiors starting with a very comfortable king-sized bed that looks out on a terrace with your very own Jacuzzi.
Afternoons can be spent lounging in bed or luxuriating in a bubble bath. You can literally feel your tired muscles go down the drain or pop with the bubbles.
You can also refresh in your large bathroom that has its own outdoor mini-garden.
But the best way to get rid of those muscle knots is a session at the Spa within the complex or right in your own bedroom. Highly recommended is their signature four arms whole body massage that has two attendants massaging you in synchronized moves. It would bring you to bliss.
The spa has a unique sauna that has a large glass window facing the villa’s private beach and the back greens of the resort’s golf course.
As if that view and the afternoon massage session is not enough to help you relax, take the sunset cruise on the Dapitan Bay, sip wine, nibble on hors d oeuvres and let nature’s display of fiery colors remind you of how beautiful life is.
When you come down from the cruise, head off to Yugo Bar and partake of Japanese-Korean food as you gaze on the twinkling lights on the water and land and then retire to your room.
Wake up the next morning and start your day with a relaxing dip or swim at the infinity pool.
Or spend your morning trying on their aqua sports facilities of jetskiing, scuba diving, kayaking, banana boat and the latest, the parasailing.
Everything fades away as the wind carries you up and you have the huge expanse of the blue sea and sky below, around, and above you.
Or you might want to try, ziplining, horseback riding, trying the ATV or with a round of golf at its Greg Norman-designed 9-hole golf course. The panoramic view from the Teebox No. 9 is awesome. You might want to stay there longer and take in the view.
Getting there is half the fun as you stop on each hole with waterfalls, manicured greens with water lilies in the water hazards, or sand hazards near the sea.
Have snacks at the Golf Café when your game is done.
If you want your own private beach front, instead of the cliff side villas choose the garden casita, beach front casita, or the beach front casa which are still a part of the Villa Angelina Luxury Suites. Everything is as splendid as the cliff side villas.
Whether you stay at the cliff side or at the beach front, a day would not be enough to live out the whole blissful experience. Stay longer. Live the life of luxury and appreciate the better things in life at Villa Angelina Luxury Suites.
