Day 1: Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel + Day 1 Contest


Fort Ilocandia is the only 5-star deluxe resort hotel!  That's what I read on the website when I researched on the place I will spend 2 nights on.  And I agree when I arrived, we were welcomed by wonderful singers as I borrowed a tambourine and sing and dance like I was part of the team!


As you go inside the hotel, a nice chandelier greeted me!  The interior of the reception area is quite cozy.


A welcome drink!  Pineapple Orange juice! It was really hot so I sipped right through it!


I'm on Room 292 and see how huge this hotel room is!  And I am staying alone!  I can jump from one bed to another I swear!  :)


My huge bed!  I guess this room is a room for 3!  I feel so pampered!


Me and my girl friends inside my room applying Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 prior to leaving the room for a quick city tour.



Pool side plus the view of the rooms!



Golf course, a very nice shot from the lady in white!


A "Venetian-like" canal which reminded me of the recent Macau trip I had!


A lengthy pool!


Fort Ilocandia is quite huge!  I like it that they have "signs" on random areas!
No reason to get lost!




The wonderful beach that took my breathe away!  Waves aren't bad but it's super windy! I can literally taste sand!!!  It was really gorgeous and we took time to emote down here! :)


And what more could you ask for?  A nice photo-op with a local Carabao!  He's 12 years old by the way!  And he's super sweet!




And of course, I don't want you to forget my face! lol
ME!  


The carabao's skin is quite warm!  Feels like summer! :)
It's a very nice place to stay and I'll enjoy it while it last!
I'll be off for another adventure tomorrow! 
Stay tuned!

  54. Ilocos Norte - it is my father's hometown! Definitely a scenic and historic place! So sad I haven't been to Fort Ilocandia yet.

    For the guessing game, I really think that "the room" was your favorite. Elegant, spacious, and fully equipped, you definitely had a wonderful time experiencing a "queen-like" treatment and feeling inside the room!
