Contemporary over-water villas is primarily what makes Huma Island Resort & Spa really attractive. It's something different from the usual beachfront villas situated in startling white sand beaches which the resort also has within the enclave that also has a lush rainforest landscape.
The best thing there is for peeps like me was the fact that there is a huge telco tower that allows us the convenience of Internet access to stay connected even while on the island. Though some would prefer not to be interrupted by these distractions of the busy business world. It's quite different for me who prefers to manage my other obligations even while having a great time away from Manila. Who says you cannot effectively manage both work and leisure together at the same time. But I guess being a freelancer does have its advantage over a traditional employee. I am the boss of myself so I get to chose when to be serious and busy, or when to take it calm and easy.
Palawan has been a dream destination and it sure feels great to stay at one of the most luxurious resorts. Getting pampered by its lavish accommodation, sumptuous buffet meals, enticing pools and beaches, and other spectacular water sports and activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, island hopping, kayaking, etc., aside from the wonderful amenities like the gym, spa, archery range, and wall climbing area, makes Huma Island Resort & Spa an idyllic premium hideaway ideal for honeymooners and couples who want the most memorable weekend of their lives.
But why stay only during the weekend? Spend more than just a couple of days. Make the most of it and stay for an entire week. Believe me, you'll never get bored bumming around the pool or beaches. This is a great place to relax and refresh so when we go back to Manila, or any other location around the world, we will feel rejuvenated and filled with renewed vigor.
You'll be greeted by a long over-water pathway leading towards the reception area of the resort, and beside it are other over-water structures like the restaurant, gym, dive shop, library and playroom, etc., There's something magical dining with a view of the clear bluish waters where you can see the marine life below. It's an amazing view for plenty of photo ops and selfies if you wish.
The beachfront is another picturesque view that offers a soothing time to unwind and enjoy the comforts of lying on the beach all day under shade of a beach umbrella admiring the scenery. I could spend several days here if only I don't have urgent matters to attend to back at home.
The infinity pool beside one their restaurants is stunning. A kiddie pool is also available so you don't have to worry abou the younger kids. Night swimming is relaxing so you don't need to worry about putting on a sunblock for protection from the UV rays of the glaring sun. I keep forgetting to put on again some sunblock so I would always end up several shades darker after a weekend stay at a resort. I think it's about time they invent and long-lasting sunblock.
I mentioned the over-water villas as the highlight of the accommodation having its own jacuzzi fronting the sea, but inside there's also a bathtub, a shower room, a toilet, a huge are for the bedroom, a pantry for the coffee-maker, mini fridge, and other standard amenities like the LED television with cable TV connection, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi access, etc.
You get around the island with golf carts driven by their staff. You just need to call the reception or any of their staff to pick you up from your room and take you wherever you want to go around the island.
But I will tell you the detailed stories on a different blog post soon. It's better I share my experience in "almost" bite size stories so you'll not be too pre-occupied with a lengthy article. See you back soon with my Huma Island Resort & Spa series.
