1. Coron, Palawan. Georgina Wilson-Burnand and her brood spent part of their summer at Club Paradise in Coron, Palawan. Nothing short of luxurious, the family of three’s choice island resort hotel boasts of private rooms that overlook Palawan’s pristine white sand and crystal clear waters.
Must-do activity: Treat yourself to a well-deserved massage at the Glow Spa. They’re especially known for their “Four Hands” treatment that involves not one, but two massage therapists!
2. Baler, Aurora. Along the popular coastline facing the Pacific, Andi Eigenmann together with boyfriend Emilio Arambulo and daughter Ellie stayed at Baler's Costa Pacifica. Situated on Sabang Beach, Costa Pacifica assures visitors that with their myriad of activitites and amenities, there is “something for everyone”—making it perfectly suitable for adults and kids alike.
Must-do activity: Take advantage of the waves! Whether you’re a newbie or a pro, check out Surfskwela Baler, just as Andi did, for the ultimate surf experience!
