Easy-breezy summer escapes
It’s official (according to Pagasa): Summer is here.
And with that official declaration comes the unbearable heat of the season. City dwellers can’t wait to run away from the urban jungle every chance they get to escape to the beaches and resort towns that are sure to provide even a temporary relief.
At the end of a long and grueling workweek, all roads lead outside the city and into quick summer getaways where weekend warriors can cool down and recharge before enduring yet another scorching week in the city.
Trusted property developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. (SLLI) offers its line of resort developments and hotels that will provide you respite and relaxation on the hot summer days coming your way.
An easy two-and-a-half hour drive north of Manila is Club Morocco Beach Resort and Residential Estates. Located right in the middle of Subic, Zambales, it is an exclusive residential community and a stone’s throw away from the beach.
Club Morocco features exclusive and first-class residential areas where you can enjoy breathtaking views each day and savor your quick summer break: Villa Monaco, Villa Ibiza, Villa Venezia and Costa Malaga. Its newest village, Costa Malaga is located at the top of the beachfront. From here, you can indulge in the breathtaking view of the beach while in the privacy of your own home.
If you’re in love with the visual richness of the Moroccan culture, then this place is the perfect must-visit for you. The fusion of Arabic, French and Spanish architecture makes everything Instagrammable at Club Morocco.
A water park also just recently opened in this Mediterranean haven.
Summer days are meant to be spent by the pool. Greet each morning with refreshing views of cool blue pools at the Aquamira Resort. Built around a water park, Aquamira has a huge swimming pool, a wave pool and a lazy pool.
Located inside the 600-ha Saddle & Clubs Leisure Park in Tanza, Cavite, the resort offers full-service condotels for those who are looking for a place to invest in. More than 100 units, each measuring 28 sqm, open to a sweeping view of Aquamira’s expansive pool.
