Buri Resort & Spa - Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro

Saturday, August 23, 2014
Howdy Guys and Gals! I hope you're in the midst of having a great night. As for me, I can still smell the fresh surroundings of Buri Resort & Spa, a 4-star boutique resort and spa in Puerto Galera that I had have experienced 2 weeks ago, the non-polluted air that I breathe. Ouch! Why reality bites me so quick… Gee… as of this writing, I'm in the Metro! That getaway was so relaxing and the most awesome trip that I had this year. Can someone bring me to paradise having a great company of nature – beach, green scenery, trees, birds chirping and the likes, pretty please?

More so, let me share with you guys what had have welcomed us on this 3 days and 2 nights stay-cation in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro (Puerto Galera is the northwestern most municipality in the province of Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. It is located at the southwestern end of the Isla Verde Passage, about 130 kilometers south of Manila.)

My first and last visit to this place was 5 years ago before this Buri Resort & Spa trip that was our team building. Yeah, I had thoughts of coming back but it is always not on my top list. Maybe because I already hated the crowd. The Puerto Galera's white beach is for the beach party goers with a jam-packed crowd that you can't even enjoy the area which is not my likings. But not until the day, that Buri Resort & Spa brought us to their romantic, serene and secluded haven.

I know I already gave you a hint and updates on what's going on during my stay thru my Instagram account as well on Facebook fan page and some OOTD (here and here) posts that I'd posted because, albeit, every corner is a picture perfect and deserves to have an OOTD taken.

Anyways, the sun shines so bright that day. At 9:00am everyone was so early on our meeting place and quite excited for this excursion. Everything was on place – perfect timing, no late, no mischievous – travelling from Metro Manila to Batangas was very smooth and seems like everyone took the chance to score a nap all throughout. And when we reached the pier everyone was so energetic and ecstatic, just can't wait to see and feel what's waiting for us. Though there was a wobbly encounter with the waves as our boat was sailing on our way to the resort because of the monsoon. But aside from that, everything was fine.

As we reached the romantic and secluded haven of Buri Resort & Spa, Helen, the resort's manager, greet us with a huge smile painted on her face. It was a very warm welcome telling us that we will be having a great time staying the resort. Well, the green scenery plus the pocketful of sunshine already connotes that we will going to have a fabulous stay. The staffs handed us a cold towels, what a better way to refresh after a scorching heat and bumpy boat ride, then as for the welcome drinks they offered Calamansi juice that was so refreshing! Then before heading to our designated room, we first had our sumptuous lunch at Animasi Restaurant. Chicken Adobo and Pork Sinigang tastes scrumptious and I just had Banana Mango Shake as for my drink.

Everything was so perfect and fab! Greens and blues were everywhere. Perfect blue sky, lush green leaves of the trees, the infinity pool is inviting and every corner of Buri Resort & Spa was designed and maintained properly. Perfect for a running-from-chaotic-world-of-Metro Manila drama.

There are 12 luxurious villas built like a traditional bahay-kubo or nipa hut that nestled among palm trees that color the island's hills green. Yani and I had the Family Villa that is good for friends and families of 4 to 6. It is a 2 level, fully air-conditioned villa with 1 queen-size bed on the ground floor equipped with 29-inch flat screen LCD TV with satellite channels and 2 single beds available in upper floor, 1 bathroom, a fully stocked mini bar and the spacious balcony.
