6. Hoyohoy Villas

The Hoyohoy Villas is a place where five of the country’s strong winds lie, at least when you consider that the place’s individual construct’s name as a point of reference—yes, each of the five-building is named after the kind of wind which varies from location to location, whether it’s the northwest, southwest, northeast, south, southeast, and the southwest. But rest assured, no storm brews directly from this place.Hoyohoy Villas

While the idea presented may just be a gimmick, the establishment’s presentation—and thereby its existence—is not. Seamlessly mixing both what is plain as well as the intricate, the Hoyohoy Villas is a venue of simply beauty.

Another of Hoyohoy Villas’ greatest strength is the exclusivity of the place. With literally only a few countable structures to acknowledge, this place is never overcrowded which makes it a perfect location for individuals or small groups of people who are seeking a place of respite from an otherwise noisy and cramped crowd.

7. Ogtong Cave Resort

For the locals of Bantayan Island, the name “Ogtong Cave Resort” is an icon. Being the first establishment to ever considered the island as an ideal location for a hospitality business, this resort is a pioneer.Ogtong Cave Resort

But being the “first” in the area is not the Ogtong Cave Resort’s only strength, it also has established itself a strong reputation in terms of layout design which makes it a benchmark of what is good or bad in the business. To say the least, the Ogtong Cave Resort is a leader which has all the qualities to justify its title which any discerning guests can see for themselves.

Much can be said about Ogtong Cave Resort’s overall external appearance, all of which boil down to one thing—it is fantastic.

Yet, while its beauty is indeed obvious from the outside, there is also something hidden about this venue that also adds to the establishment’s appeal and mystic. It has an underground cave—hence the name—where people can dip into but is only exclusive to those who are indeed customers of the resort.
