Caramoan: Tugawe Cove Resort
Hello there! I've finally gotten the chance to write the 2nd part of our Tugawe Cove vacation. Sorry if it took a while. I wanted to write immediately a couple days after the first part, but as usual, life got in the way.
After the exciting travel to Tugawe Cove Resort (read about it HERE), we were welcomed with warm smiles and some yummy refreshments.
We loved their maruya so much (they're banana fritters, I think?) that we ordered them every chance possible. Sigh, how I wish they can deliver to Rizal. Haha!
|This is their reception area.|
We got a lake side casita, and because there were no king beds available, we settled on the one with twin beds.

The room wasn't huge, but we had ample space for ourselves. The bathroom was the same. It wasn't huge, but it spacious enough for two people to shower at the same time.
Here's the view right outside of our room:
It was tranquil and a stone's throw away from the ocean. What we didn't anticipate was that we would hardly be spending time at the beach... And that the restaurant would be at the top of the hill. Grabbing a meal meant going up the hill every single time - not a walk in the park if you're not exactly fit. Haha! So we ended up ordering room service for dinner all the time.
Here's the beach. I think we only went there once. That was it. Haha!
Here are the stairs that we had to endure every time we had to get to the top of the hill:
Yes. It's quite a climb. Haha!
Good thing they this buggy that you can ride to the top - but you still have to climb halfway.
It's quite slow and when you're riding to the top, you're facing downhill... But if you absolutely can't bear the stairs and you're not in a rush, then take the buggy. Hehe!
Everything can be found on top of the hill: the restaurant, the pool, a playground for the kiddos, the entertainment area... If I had only done my research properly. LOL!
|More stairs going up to the restaurant, the pool, and the entertainment area.|
We loved lounging in the pool. The view was awesome and the birds were quite an entertainment. There were a few birds that liked to dive into the pool only to get their feathers slightly wet. Some others only did some fake dives. Haha!
It's just now that I realized that we don't have any pictures at the restaurant. I guess it's because we're always very hungry by the time we get up there. Haha!
Tugawe Cove Resort is a wonderful place. It's very exclusive (not like there's a choice) and the staff are friendly. If you're looking for a place to party, this place might not be it though. It's very peaceful and quiet, especially at night. It's the kind of place you go to if you just want to chill.
Do check them out if you've plans of going to Caramoan. Here's the LINK to their website. :)
