The Treasures Of Bamboo Beach Resort

The Bamboo Beach Resort is located in Puerto Galera, one of the top vacation sites in the Philippines. Unlike other popular beach destinations, it is here where one could find tranquility.

Guests could lie on the sand and enjoy the splashing of gentle waves or the salty yet enticing aroma of the ocean breeze. The paradisiacal surroundings could just lull one into a heavenly sleep.

Of course, no fun would be had if a whole vacation were spent snoozing. Adventurous souls could satiate their thirst for thrills by doing one of the myriad activities available to tourists. The clear water here makes it a perfect place for scuba diving and observing the life forms under the sea.

Competitive guests would have the time of their lives with hash running. This race, which is essentially a party game, was invented by some bored English guys in the late 1930s. The contestants are made a trail, marked with chalk, through the most picturesque places on the beach.

The aim is to find hidden beers and get to the finish line where a feast is laid. The Puerto Galera Hash House Harriers, one of the many hash running communities in the world, would definitely give guests a great time. Races and/or meetings take place every Sunday at 4PM at Sabang Beach, a 15-minute boat ride from Bamboo Beach.

The Ponderosa Golf Club is available for those less inclined to digging for alcoholic treasures. The 9-hole course is situated at the foot of Mount Malasimbo and is high enough to afford one a panoramic view of Puerto Galera. Arrangements to go here could be made through Bamboo Beach Resort. Bringing one’s own equipment is not necessary (unless preferred) for the club rents out gold clubs and balls and even a server for drinks.

After a day of excitement, guests have comfortable rooms waiting for them back at Bamboo Beach Resort. As the name suggests, all of the rooms are made with beautiful sturdy bamboo. These include the bed, the walls, the door, and the tables. A simple bedspread, pillows, and a net adorn the sleeping area while the window is treated with humble lace curtains.

There are three kinds of rooms to choose from. The deluxe room is ideal for those on a budget. It can accommodate a maximum of two persons, has a double bed, a refrigerator, bathroom, and a large veranda where one could sit under the moonlight. The family suite can fit five members with its double bed and three single beds. There also is a fridge and a bathroom and an even larger veranda where kids can play safely. The seaview suite is the perfect room for couples in their honeymoon or not. It’s overlooking of a huge part of Puerto Galera, which makes it a very romantic spot. This could be done at the veranda. Guests here also have cable TV and a bathroom.

Spending time by the ocean is truly rejuvenating. It is even better when done at Bamboo Beach Resort.
