Have you been dreaming of that iconic Santorini getaway? Well, La Union has its own Santorini if you want a taste of it without having to go in Greece. No kidding!
Know Inside Out
A company-sponsored summer outing can’t get any better if the destination is as beautiful as Thunderbird Resort (Yes, I’m a lucky girl here.).
Thunderbird is a luxurious 65-hectare resort-hotel, a paradise siting prettily over a 100-ft cliff, at the highest point of the Poro peninsula. The entire place replicates Santorini’s domes and white-blue themed architecture.
It’s a Shore Thing
Thunderbird has a lovely shoreline with white sand. I appreciate the markers they put indicating the approximate sea depth.
The resort has one huge pool from where you can actually witness a fabulous La Union sunset. Pool water is warm and shallow at 5ft.
They also have a smaller pool for kids.
Hit the Hay
We stayed in one of their deluxe rooms and I must say, it was one of the finest ones I had seen. The room speaks luxury for itself – from the huge beds to the clean bathroom equipped with complete toiletries. There is a free wi-fi access and signal was good.
Food is also great in generous serving. They have complete set of meal with gourmet dishes.
- Santorini inspired architecture.
- Luxurious amenities.
- They have provision for team building activities.
- The resort is strict with swimming attire so bring a proper one.
- Recommended venue to celebrate special occasions like wedding.
