WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF

Bounded by the un­spoilt nat­u­ral won­ders of Coron, this hide­away is made for dream va­ca­tions

Philippine Tatler Traveller - - Art Of Luxury Travel Special Feature -

Clear turquoise seas, a thriv­ing marine life, the end­less stretch of blue skies and mag­nif­i­cent nat­u­ral rock for­ma­tions draw the tourists, both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional, to the is­land of Coron. The next best thing about the is­land is the Two Sea­sons Re­sort and Spa, favoured for its ex­clu­sive lo­ca­tion, breath­tak­ing scenery, and world-class ameni­ties.

It is also the first eco-friendly luxury re­sort in this choice va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion. Oc­cu­py­ing the Malaroy­roy penin­sula, ac­ces­si­ble through a scenic 40-minute boat ride from the Coron town proper, the Two Sea­sons Re­sort and Spa is a con­tem­po­rary oa­sis har­mo­niously blend­ing with the un­spoilt nat­u­ral won­ders of the is­land.

For starter, the bun­ga­lows for lodg­ing are taste­fully de­signed to com­ple­ment the nat­u­ral sur­round­ings. The Deluxe seav­iew units have breezy ve­ran­das over­look­ing the ma­jes­tic sea and its coast­line. The Beach units fac­ing the seashore have easy ac­cess to the pool and other re­sort fa­cil­i­ties. The Is­land Tip and Sandbar units share a view of the mag­nif­i­cent sun­set.

The re­sort’s in­door ameni­ties in­clude com­puter sta­tions, game and board rooms, and beach bar with pool ta­ble.

For the ac­tive souls and sports en­thusi - asts, Two Sea­sons makes avail­able an ar­ray of wa­ter­sport gears such as wa­ter­skis, snorkels and kayaks.

For a more thrilling un­der­wa­ter adventure, the Hy­droBob Sub­mersible Scooter and the Molokoni are must-try. Hy­droBob is easy to ma­neu­ver, with over 180 de­grees of clear view in any di­rec­tion un­der­wa­ter. The Molokini is a two-pas­sen­ger kayak with a hull made of trans-

par­ent poly­car­bon­ate for view­ing the Coron reefs up to 75 feet down be­low.

The Narra Spa is an­other rea­son guests en­joy their stay at Two Sea­sons.

Equipped with ver­sa­tile and com­fort­able EarthLite spa beds, this world-class fa­cil­ity adopts the best prac­tices and tech­nolo­gies in re­ju­ve­na­tion and re­lax­ation meth­ods. The re­sult is a spa ex­pe­ri­ence that is un­for­get­table, rich, and holis­tic.

The spa’s sur­round­ings are just as lux­u­ri­ous: narra fur­ni­ture amidst a har­mo­nious mix of in­dige­nous, nat­u­ral, and ar­ti­sanal fur­nish­ings.

The choice venues are the ca­banas by the beach, hill­top vil­las with breath­tak­ing sea views, or vil­las en­sconced in lush man­grove forests.

The staff are highly-trained and skilled in Asian, Poly­ne­sian, and ,mod­ern ther­a­peu­tic treat­ments.

With cof­fee, milk, and honey as in­gre­di­ents, each detox­i­fy­ing, mois­tur­iz­ing, or exfoliatin­g treat­ment be­gins with a cer­e­mo­nial foot­bath and ends with a ther­a­peu­tic cup of hot, freshly brewed herbal tea. In be­tween, guests are treated to a sig­na­ture flo­ral bath, a Vis­chy shower, and a Narra Spa mas­sage.

BATHS

The Narra Spa baths are suf­fused with the medic­i­nal and ther­a­peu­tic prop­er­ties of spe­cial mac­ro­bi­otic and eco-friendly herbs, min­er­als, spices, and oils. Ev­ery bath comes with a com­ple­men­tary fruit plat­ter and re­fresh­ing cala­m­on­dine slush.
