As the most accessible surfing hotspot in Metro Manila, La Union has become quite the weekend destination, with locations such as the famed El Union or Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel being the topic of conversation among friends every so often.
If you want to take a breather from the busy town of San Juan, however, a quieter resort located in San Fernando will do the trick. Aureo La Union offers both tranquility and a different type of excitement without losing the signature charm of La Union. As someone who has not visited that side of the town before, it was a refreshing change of scenery.
Located at San Fernando, beachfront resort Aureo La Union offers elegant accommodation and facilities, with 40 comfortable villas. You can choose to stay in either their Deluxe Room or the slightly smaller Superior Room. Each villa opens up to a balcony that gives you a wonderful view of the resort.
Soon, the scorching sun will make you want to take a dip in one of their infinity pools. Located near their Sun Chaser bar, you can also enjoy a cocktail in the water as the sun sets. And if the beach is more your type, no problem—you can simply walk out to the shore and enjoy the serene company of the ocean. If you’re up for some excitement, Aureo also offers a number of water activities such as jet skiing and kayaking. The range of activities make the place ideal for any group, whether it be a group of friends or a family with young children.
When it comes to their food, Aureo offers a number of cuisines suitable to any individual. Grab a bite at their Coast Restaurant, where you can enjoy a quality meal while enjoying the view of the pristine beach right in front of you. The restaurant offers Filipino and international cuisine that ranges from Asian to Mediterranean. If you want a house favorite, go for their Stick Pork Ribs or their Lime Butter Prawns with Kimchi Rice. For dessert, you will be taken back home with their Baguio Strawberry Cheesecake. Aside from this, the resort also has a daily breakfast buffet, making sure that you will start your mornings right. By nightfall, you may also choose to have dinner by the beach, complete with a round table on the sand and live acoustic music. With delicious food and drinks and great company, could it get any better than this?
And if you still find yourself craving for the energy of San Juan, no need to fret—it is only a 15-minute drive away. So if you’re the type, you will definitely enjoy the best of both worlds.
