“Villa Igang Park formerly known as Puerto del Mar is the happy midpoint between sky and seabed. Whichever direction the eye chooses to go, it will catch only a sense of rightness. The resort was originally planned as a conservation area for tropical foliage and marine life and important lines are drawn toward this end. Virgin coral beds and old trees are equally protected with love, and a keen sense of the future. It is located at Poblacion, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras adjacent to other resorts along Alubihod Bay.” (Source)
Arriving at Villa Igang on a drizzling day one February afternoon found the resort nearly empty save for a few guests.
I was hoping for a nice sunset view but was disappointed.
I, for myself was hampered with an 8th-month pregnancy, so I was not able to explore the resort and its cliffs, caves and views as much as I would have liked.
“A cozy resort by the sea enveloped by lush greenery of every kind that nature can offer, Villa Igang is the place to hang out in at any time of the day or night… “to behold the mesmerizing dawn just before the first rays of the sun come to view…” “to see the full impact of the noonday sun without getting scorched by it… “to laze at dusk on a warm sundown waiting for the overcast and lovely cool of evening set in,” amidst the delightful little silly noises of crickets and those of some significant little others. And more deep into the night, when the heavens regale the star struck with a panoramic view of the sky dominated by the serene and seductive moon gracefully parading the firmament with her entourage — the constellation.” (Source)
My cousin went to Guimaras a few months before and this is where he stayed, and consequently recommended.
Though I myself, in hindsight, would not recommend the place as I found it ill-maintained at that time; I would not be able to think of a better place to stay in Guimaras. It was very quiet so I appreciated that; but the rooms left so much to be desired.
This is where I stayed and I picked it for its balcony and view.
“Villa Igang welcomes visitors to its haven in this exquisite piece of nature’s delightful legacy. With 23 rooms, seven of which are air-conditioned, Villa Igang is likewise equipped with an open conference room allowing the participants to savor unrestrictedly the fresh sea air. A leisurely walk along the shores of the hilltops in the early morning and early evening, and a swim in the coves of Villa Igang will certainly cap one’s unforgettable sojourn in this kingdom by the sea, with the memory of the experience haunting the beholder long after the “trick’s over”.”
