KAHUNA HO­TEL

This re­sort boasts ex­cit­ing wa­ter ac­tion and ma­jes­tic views

Real Living (Philippines) - - La Union - Sun­shine Selga Funa

The lush grounds and amaz­ing views at Kahuna are enough rea­sons to make you want to stay for more than a day in San Juan, La Union. Whether you’re with fam­ily, friends, or a loved one, the re­sort has a lit­tle of ev­ery­thing for ev­ery­one—even if you don’t know how to surf in this surf town.

The Ba­li­nese-style re­treat, for one, fea­tures cozy huts and vil­las that are ei­ther sur­rounded by re­fresh­ing greens or are fronting the rugged sea and its pa­trons of surfers—avid and ama­teurs alike. If you’re feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous, take ad­van­tage of the waves and sign up for surf lessons cour­tesy of the La Union Surf School. And be­cause all that pad­dling and pop­ping on the surf­board can get re­ally ex­haust­ing, head straight to Spa Luana for some pam­per­ing. If surf­ing isn’t your cup of tea, the re­sort has a pool where you can en­joy a leisurely dip. End your day with an early din­ner at The Big Kahuna Bar and Restau­rant, which serves in­ter­na­tional cui­sine, and be treated to a mes­mer­iz­ing view of the sun­set.

“Ours is a lux­ury-style re­sort unique in the area,” says Gly­nis Balagot, direc­tor of sales and mar­ket­ing. Es­tab­lished in Septem­ber 2010, Kahuna has re­cently ex­panded to put up Kahuna Makati, a bistro that has the same laid-back am­biance as the town it hails from. kahuna ho­tel, Cafe & reStau­rant, na­tional hiGh­way, BrGy. ur­Biz­tondo, San Juan, la union; Mo­Bile (0917) 830-0363, (0998) 8552837; tel.
