Summer’s almost here! If you’re looking for a beach getaway with your family, Sundowners in Bolinao, Pangasinan may just be the one to book.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the Hundred Islands in Pangasinan. But if you want something that’s a little more intimate, booking a vacation villa is the way to go.
What to expect at Sundowners Bolinao
Sundowners Bolinao has four major villas, each with cozy room options. The area also has a bar and restaurant and a souvenir shop.
The Cliffside Villas are located atop a hill, which gives visitors a good view of the ocean. The building’s architecture is inspired by Santorini — quite minimalist and clean. The area is pet-friendly and gives you access to the common infinity pool.
If you’re not a fan of heights, perhaps you’d like to stay at one of the accommodations at the Marina Villas instead. They’re located at the foot of the hill and is the closest to the sea.
Private Pool Villas
Not a fan of shared spaces? Book a stay at the Private Pool Villas instead. If it’s just you and your S.O., the Honeymoon Suite is the perfect option because it has a plunge pool with a view — talk about romantic.
Aside from lounging, you can also book a massage or a day tour of Bolinao while you’re here.
The main down sides of the place is it’s not PWD-friendly and the ocean around it is not advised for swimming as it does not have a sand area.
Accommodation prices start at P3,950 to P25,150 per night during peak season.
Want an even more private vacation experience? The Beach Mansion, which has 8 rooms, is the one to book. It’s right beside the ocean! And it has practically all of the amenities you’d want for a hassle-free time by the beach. It has a fully-equipped kitchen if you want to do some cooking but you can also just buy from the place’s C!AO restaurant. The best part is this space is actually PWD-friendly! Just take note that this is 30 minutes away from the main Sundowners Villas.
The entire place can be booked for P49,950 per night.
