The whole trip and stay at Tugawe was near perfect!
We availed of the roundtrip land and boat transfers. We had the van all to ourselves from Robinsons Naga to Talisay Port. We shared the boat ride from Talisay Port to Tugawe with a wonderful family of 10. The sea was rough and it was raining but we were graced with a wonderful and sunny weather during the rest of our stay.
We got the Hilltop Casita/Cabana Room. The room was very spacious, not in its pristine state but still acceptable and classy. It has a mini fridge (we just discovered it during our second day) and coffee and tea making facilities. The advantage of getting that room is that it's near the resort resto and you can still get 'intermittent' wifi signal from the resto itself. Although, we had a hard time locking the room during our first day. If you're a couple, the Hilltop Cabana Room is great choice since it has a rooftop with reclining chairs where you can stargaze while talking about the mysteries of love and life.
Cecilia's, the resort restaurant, sits on top of a hill. It gives you a very calming vibe that your dining in one with nature. They serve tasty and delicious but quite expensive dishes. Price ranges from 350-700 php, good for 2 persons. Nevertheless, just like everything in Tugawe, you always get what you paid for. Tip: have your breakfast in the veranda overlooking the sea. 👌
The beach is picturesque especially when its sunny and in the afternoon. You can kayak and paddleboard for free. I heard that you could do snorkeling too.
The resort boasts two infinity pool, both of them picturesque and well maintained but I think what they lack were catchy pool lights at night.
A trek to the Lighthouse before the sunset completed our trip. It boasts a scenery that could be compared to Batanes.
After our 3D2N stay, all I can think about is the day that I could go back at Tugawe to rest and relax.
P.S. Kudos to the staff for always being ready to offer free anti seasickness meds!
