Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa (Day 1)

We set aside our Singapore trip for Bellarocca! We purchased this Bellaroca deal december of last year and scheduled the trip 1st week of May just in time for my BIL's annual vacation. ( He works in Dubai. ) Package includes a P20,000 welcome value credit which can be used for food and beverage, mini bar, massages, marine sports such as windsurfing, hobie cat sailing and jet skiing. Children below 12 yrs old are free of charge ( maximum of 2 kids). Bellarocca Island is situated off the south west coast of the Marinduque province. It was designed and patterned after the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. Upon arrival at the Marinduque airport, we were greeted by a bellaroca airport representative who took care of our luggage by loading them into the van. We were handed bottles of cold water and a cold towels to freshen up. Land transfer from the airport to the mainland took 45 minutes and from there, we were transferred via speed boat to the island itself which took 5 minutes. A refreshing pandan juice was served to us the moment we arrived at the lobby. Someone assisted us to our room and we just waited for our luggage to be delivered to our room. Our room was completely perfect for our needs. It was immaculately clean and beds were truly comfortable.



Original Value:Php 120,560. We got it for Php 48,500 excluding airfare. Roundtrip airfare is Php3,500 via ZestAir. Was it worth the price? I'll let you know in my last bellarocca post .



We arrived at exactly 10:30 in the morning.



The room I shared with cousin Rome.



It opens to a balcony with a beautiful view of the sea and Mt. Malindig.



View from our room. hmmm... not us but the background! hehe!



Dining area



We had buffet lunch before dipping in the pool. This was just part of the buffet area.



Some of the food I enjoyed eating.



Time to go swimming!



I love this canopy sofa!



Seaside Pavilion Infinity Pool with Sunken Bar.


Cousin Rome


We had the infinity pool all to ourselves!



Halo-Halo break after swimming.


Exploring the place for some photo session.


My sister with her hubby and daughter.



This picture could have been perfect if only our feet hadn't been cut off! lol!






We had dinner delivered to our terraza since we were lazy to go to the Clubhouse restaurant.

Ito ang isa sa PINAKA expensive na resort na alam ko dito sa Pinas. For me, you were the first one who indulged to this super luxury resort in Marinduque. World class.. I love the photos! Setting palang mukang mahal na talaga but seems worth it.
