As blogged here, I went to Palawan from March 12-15 with sistah-from-anotha-mistah Ana, to celebrate her 24th birthday in Dos Palmas (March 15 ang bday niya, and tanda ko noh hahahaaa). Since our boodgei can only accommodate the 3 days - 2 nights stay in this fine luxurious resort, we opted to stay in the Ardent Hotel for our first night (mga P1,500 lang ata dun per room per night! not bad!).
The next day, we set our alarms at around 5:30 am (To the tune of Teenage Dreams, haha)...So we can reach the Dos Palmas office for the first trip.
And dami na kaagad Day Trip people.
When you say Day Trip - no overnight and one day stay lang siya sa resort.
But inclusive na yung bus and boat transfers to and from the city, the use of the different Dos Palmas amenities like kayak, snorkling, different courts, resort bikes, billiards, videoke, etcetera. Plus may buffet lunch nadin siya, and complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day. :) Sulit na siya for P2,500! More on the packages in Dos Palmas Website.
Dos Palmas office / meet up point:
Bus going to port:
Since we went there early, Ana and I had our breakfast first in the katapat na karinderiya before riding the bus:
Antok pa, hehehe.
Then we transfered to a boat, going to the Dos Palmas Islands na:
Our tour guide, Mel Mar, is really nice and funny :)) Benta mga hirit niya sakin!:
Umeemote na si Ana, hehehe. Joke lang, gusto lang niyan umitim!
Habang ako, iwas sa araw, hahaha! Hindi ako magandang maitim hehehe :P
And after a few hours, finally...DOS PALMAS! :)))
Kami ata may pinaka malaking maleta hahahah :D Donya?
Pinahirapan ko si kuya ng bonggang bongga hahaha. Puno yan kuya, pero hats lang and accessories! Hahaha!
Ang ganda, kainlab. <3
We were welcomed with drinks...
And may tugtugan pa! :)) :D
Plus, they gave wooden beads necklaces to us as welcome gift. <3 Love at first sight nako sa Dos!
We were brought to our secluded house via an open jeep transpo (medyo malayo siya, pero nilalakad din namin siya eventually.) While the housekeeper brought our maletas via this pedicab hahaha:
May bikes din, but di namin nagamit, nakakahiya, di ako marunong mag bike hahaha. :P
Anyway! We stayed in the "Beach Villa". Medyo mahirap tandaan room number namin noh, F4! Hahaha!
A little room tour of F4 Beach Villa--our home for 2 nights!!! :)))
View as we entered the room:
Ana got in first, so she gets to choose her bed--I think King Size yun! :P Daya! Hahaha! Pasalamat ka birthday mo di nako nakipag agawan!!! Hahaha!!!
My humble bed (haha anodaw?? :D)..katabi ng veranda, Ana's favorite spot. Bakit kaya? Hahahaha!
In front of my bed is this "extra bed"--where we place our "tambak", and lie down pag basa na from swimming, hehehe.
Yup, walang tv sa rooms! Dami kong namiss na Mara Clara eps, hahaha!
Inupakan namin Pringles hahaha:
Going to the banyo, na wala pala akong pic, hahaha :P :
Mga kaartehang pwede gawin sa veranda, hehehe:
1) Pang outfit pic:
3) At habang suma-sound trip habang nanunuod ng breathtaking view. :) <3
Yan ang namiss out mo, Ana! Hahahaha! :D
