We booked a 3d/2n package on Deal dozen for this lovely, Greek-inspired island resort, of the coast of Marinduque in the Philippines. Zest Air flew us from Manila domestic airport to Marinduque, and we were greeted by Bellarocca staff at the airport, whisked to the port, and rode a rubber speed boat to the Island.
Since it was off-peak season, there were only about three or four other groups in the whole of the island.. it seemed that the resort was all to ourselves. Nice breath-taking scenery, and photo opportunities; lovely pools by the beach; Nice snorkeling and paddle-boating around the port.
Best of all the food was excellent. from the freshly baked bread, to the buffet dinners.
I would recommend this for families, corporate outings, and romantic get-aways.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa in Marinduque is distinct from the other upscale, luxury resorts of its category anywhere in the country. All 20 hectares of Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa is mountainous terrain, with its highest point at 114 meters above sea-level. To many seasoned travellers, the images of the picturesque island of Santorini in Greece come to mind upon approaching the resort. Common to both are its rolling terrain and immaculate white buildings perched atop its cliffs: white structures that reflect the sun and contrast with the azure blue sea below. Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa is located on a small mountain island of the southern coast of Marinduque and offers 69 luxurious deluxe suites, casas, terrazas and private villas (with individual Jacuzzis and infinity pools). Guests relax in utmost privacy while enjoying the resort's complete aqua sports facilities, a full spa and wellness facility, a 9-hole golf course and other land-based recreational activities. Guests arrive on the island direct via commercial flights (SEAIR or Zest Air), private helicopters, chartered flights from Manila to Marinduque or onboard an exclusive luxury yacht. ... more less
