A hidden gem tucked away at the edge of a coconut plantation in Dipaculao, Aurora, will surely be your new favorite place to unwind. Côte Resort has a unique and relaxing vibe, and their accommodation is nothing short of underwhelming. Allow us to indulge you with reasons that will have you planning a summer retreat!
Feel like an exclusive guest of the resort. Côte Resort is home to only 6 uniquely designed cabins, all of which are made out of repurposed container vans, has a 36 sqm. floor area and are fully air-conditioned. You can choose from a king or twin-sized beds, and since there are only a handful of cabins, it will almost feel like you’re the only ones there. Think of it as your own secret beach hideaway, a place where you can chill out without any worries, which brings us to our next reason.
Busy yourself with their complimentary services. Looking forward to learning how to surf, or do you just want to hit the waves for some summer action? Here, you can do both and more! Côte Resort offers complimentary surfing lessons or if you already know how to, you can borrow one of their boards and start hitting the waves. They also have various board and card games you and your friends can use to while the day away. There are other amenities you can enjoy as well for a small fee, like riding ATVs along the beach or to explore the rest of the resort, or even schedule a bonfire while you stargaze at night. All this talk about activities is making us hungry; so let’s move on to our next reason.
Never worry about food. If the first two reasons are still not enough to convince you, maybe this will. All meals are included in the fee. Yes, you read that right, from breakfast, lunch, merienda to dinner; this amazing resort has you covered. So you don’t need to worry about hunting for food when you go hungry after a full day of activities.
Disconnect from the city and be one with nature. Because of its secluded location, it’s truly an invitation for you to explore the natural beauty of the Philippines. Surround yourself in calmness and serenity and take this chance to finally do some yoga with the wind whistling through the coconut trees and the lapping of the waves across the sand. It’s the ultimate backdrop for some downtime.
It’s Instagrammable. Need we say more? Imagine the clear blue sky and the sun’s rays shining through the trees. Choosing between the ocean waves or the coconut trees for your background is no easy dilemma. The resort’s look also gives you a gorgeous combo of natural and industrial.
