Abaca Boutique Resort ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

It is that time of the year when I just want to be alone. Alone in my presence, alone in my thoughts. 

IMG_7283Okay, the date is a giveaway, but you all know how delinquent I am, and you all forgive me
because I am cute, right? Errr… please?

IMG_7320Baybayon. My home for the night.

IMG_7251A plush king-sized bed fit for a queen (ahem!)

IMG_7244The Baybayon room comes with a daybed, too, and it is where I have my breakfast next morning.

IMG_7292The door opens up to a simple yet modern shower area

IMG_7263And THIS! Woohoo!

IMG_7317Cotton pads, balls and buds

IMG_7268My room opens up to a lovely pocket patio

IMG_7321And that lovely pocket patio gives me this view

IMG_7294 Rise and shine!!! Breakfast in the comfort of my room

IMG_7310Delicious freshly baked breads, homemade jams, fresh orange juice

IMG_7316 Abaca Eggs Benedict – poached eggs, crostini, shaved ham, tomato hollandaise,
herb potato hash. The best I’ve ever had!

IMG_7300French pressed coffee and raw sugar

I spend the day swimming, snacking, sunbathing, reading, napping, snacking, lazing around, amidst couples snuggling, romancing, hugging, kissing, etc. etc.

Abaca has an in-house spa, too, but that has to wait until my next visit.

IMG_7331I think this is a beauty

I have a romantic dinner by myself, amidst couples smiling, holding hands, looking into each other’s eyes, whispering sweet nothings into each other’s ears, etc. etc.

I do not mind. I care only about the food, and the food at Abaca Restaurant is so wonderful it deserves a separate post of its own.

For a different experience the following night, I request to be transferred into the second floor suite, Panganod. 

IMG_7384My home for the second night. No, not the wooden banca, duh!

IMG_7365Panganod Bathroom (I am standing in the shower)

IMG_7366Tub or bed? Hmmm…

IMG_7352The Panganod room opens up to a small terrace

IMG_7353With the view of Abaca’s infinity pool and the beautiful ocean

IMG_7443When I wake up the next morning noon, I tell my butler (yes, you get a butler who
services you 24 hours!) I wanna have my breakfast in one of the cabanas

IMG_7429I can get used to this forever

IMG_7430Cinnamon Brioche French Toast with Candied Orange and Berry Compote, freshly baked breads, fresh watermelon juice, cappuccino

I want to live in Abaca forever.
