Quietly settled in Olongapo, Zambales, Subic Bay is probably one of the most popular bays in the country and is referred to as the safest and deepest bay in the whole Pacific Isle. With a view of yachts in still parade, a bayutiful stay is guaranteed at Subic Bay Yacht Club.

Subic Bay Yacht Club

Just a three-hour drive from Manila, Subic Bay Yacht Club offers that home-away-from-home atmosphere. Exclusive for members, I appreciate a getaway in the place because of its cozy ambiance minus the bunch of crowd. I was fortunate to stay for a night at Subic Bay Yacht Club when I attended a social media marketing workshop conducted by Tag Media & Public Relations.

The moment we get off of our van, the first thing that caught my attention from afar is the procession of beautiful yachts. The view of the yachts just across the entrance of Subic Bay Yacht Club gives me a stimulating feeling making me forget of the busy city life.

Getting in, a stunning staircase set on a nicely designed floor signals a night of relaxation and comfort. From the reception area, the hotel provides a huge lobby for guests. If you go to the second floor, a more spacious one is available with a grand piano on display. You can get here a magnificent view of the yachts outside.

Ending our day, we had some short and intimate socials where we talked about goals, dreaming, the power of positivity and the law of attraction. I learned a lot from the group especially from Ms. Grace Bondad-Nicolas, COO and founder of Tag Media.

After a few drinks, I look forward to finally hitting the hay!

Hit the Hay

Going to my room on the third floor, I’d pass by a small living room area.

With a dim light, the deluxe, air-conditioned room is more than spacious for four people. Having two largely-sized beds all for myself, I can jump from one bed to another. A television set, a dressing area, cabinets and complimentary drinks are all provided.

Soft pillows and warm comforter – I couldn’t ask for more! I’m a very appreciative person even when I was younger but now more than ever, I increased my gratitude level to even a greater extent. And the soothing bed in my room is more than happiness to me! I actually fell asleep within the first five minutes I landed on the bed. View from the window room is the main road but surprisingly, I was not distracted by any noise from the street. The quiet night spoiled me even more.

Waking up really the next day, a warm bath helped me prepared for a brand new set of activities. Aside from a non-negotiable clean bathroom, a hot shower is always a must for me especially on cold mornings.

The bathroom is huge with a jacuzzi – which is standard in all rooms – and a complete set of toiletries.

Ready to embrace another wonderful day, I went down to the hotel’s restaurant to have breakfast with my fellow workshop participants.

On the Plate

You don’t get a buffet breakfast with an unlimited brewed coffee (important for coffee addict like me) everyday and Subic Bay Yacht Club offers one for PHP499 from 7AM – 10AM. Making your breakfast even more delightful is the view of the yachts outside. What a way to start the day!

Don’t expect an overly wide assortment of food in the buffet. But I think they have a good combination of food to choose from including breads, cereals and usual breakfast favorites like egg omelette, tocino, tapa and chicken.

Swimming Pool

Because of the membership required at Subic Bay Yacht Club, you’ll enjoy more the use of facilities like swimming pool. In the past years, the tourism industry seems to be booming a lot where people are really into taking vacations making some popular destinations crowded. And this sometimes steals the relaxation you are seeking. Utmost privacy is one of the things I like most about Subic Bay Yacht Club.
