  • Resorts in La Union

    I was supposed to post this last September. I just noticed that I've been getting visitors who were directed here when searching for resorts in La Union. Too lazy, it took 7 months before I could finally publish it.

    By the way, La Union is the province closest to my heart. Although I was born and raised in Ilocos Sur, I've learned to love La Union more than my own province (read: Chavit).

    Anyway, here's the list of different La Union resorts, inland resorts included. I know there's a lot more so if you know one, please inform me.

    1. San Juan Surf Resort
    Location: San Juan, La Union
    Website: www.sanjuansurfresort.com


    I once stayed here over night back in 2008. San Juan is the surfing capital of the north (or is it the entire country?), so expect to see waves and surf boards. Definitely not ideal for midnight swimming; they usually hold parties here during peak seasons. Jericho Rosales is a regular visitor.

    2. Puerto de San Juan
    Location: San Juan, La Union
    Website: www.puertodesanjuan.com

    One of the few beach resorts here with a pool. The beach is just not recommended for swimming as the water is quite deep. Nonetheless, they've got nice hotel rooms and amenities.

    3. Sebay Surf Resort
    Location: San Juan, La Union

    San Juan and Sebay surf resorts are just neighbors, although Se-Bay is more visible from the national highway. They have wider and bigger facilities too.

    4. Normis Beach Resort
    Location: San Juan, La Union

    Normi2s (pronounced as Normi Normis) is probably one of the most affordable resorts in San Juan. It's ideal for large groups. I was here last September 2009 and the place is better than what I've expected. Swimming pools are really necessary in this area; no wonder they have two.


    5. China Sea Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union
    Website: www.chinaseabeachresort.com.ph
    Update: Their new website is http://www.chinaseabeachresorts.com. Thanks to China Sea Beach Resort for the information.

    I'd always remember this place as it is where I treated my friends after my college graduation a few years back. They have a small swimming pool that we loved! Guests are mostly foreigners. The rooms are quite affordable.


    6. Sea Park
    Location: Poro Point, San Fernando, La Union
    Website: www.seaparkbeachresort.com

    Poro is what I call the mini Olongapo of La Union (yes, what you're thinking is right). Americans use to occupy the Wallace Air Station, now transformed to a Casino and a five star hotel. Sea Park is just near these land marks. I've never been to Sea Park, but I've heard they've got white sand.


    7. Thunderbird
    Location: Poro Point, San Fernando, La Union
    Website: www.thunderbirdresorts.com/philippines

    Perhaps the most expensive place to visit in this province. The hotel itself is amazing and the view is just breath taking. Imagine Santorini....

    8. Oasis Country Resort
    Location: National Highway, San Fernando, La Union
    Website: www.oasiscountryresort.com

    One of the inland resorts in La Union. As what my former college instructor said "It's so near yet so far (to the beach)" as he wondered why an inland resort has to be built in a place popularly known for its beaches.


    Below is a list of other resorts dotting along the San Fernando/Bauang beach. Most of the owners of these resorts are foreigners so expect to see quite a number of white people (with their exotic find) when you visit.

    8. Cabana Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union
    Website: www.cabana.com.ph


    9. Bali Hai Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union
    Website: www.balihai.com.ph


    10. La Mer Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union

    11. Coconut Grove Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union

    12. El Caseron Beach Resort
    Location: Caba, La Union
    Website: elcaseron.tripod.com


    13. Southern Palms Beach Resort
    Location: Bauang, La Union
    Website: www.southernpalms.com.ph
