The “Taste of Heaven” is an eat all you can buffet where their restaurants offers you their finest dishes and desserts, this promo is offered every Fridays and Saturdays 6:30pm to 11:00pm for only P480/person, and yes I was very lucky to be invited to dine in there and dig in!

Want my top MUST TRY picks? I'd say it's the baked oysters, the leche flan, and the shrimp tempura is way better than the Japanese restaurant that I've tried.

TIP: Leave some space for one (1) round of rock lobster, and halo-halo if you want it since they're not in display. You may ask the waiter or tell them if you want to eat it already.

Don’t forget to like the Golden Prince Hotel and Suites fan page to get their latest updates on their rooms, promos, and of course their Le’mon Restaurant or check out the official website of Golden Prince Hotel and Suites to find out more about this hotel in Cebu.

Bulog Dos Island - Coron Palawan’s The Sand Bar

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Thursday, July 09, 2015
Bulog Dos Island is an island in Coron Palawan that is about 1.5 to 2 hours boat travel from the Coron Town. It’s a neighboring island wherein the Two Seasons Boracay is located, it’s just near to Two Seasons that you can see clearly the resort from the island. It is also said that it is actually nearer to Culion Island than Coron.

I actually thought that we’ll be just passing by to this island since it’s small that some may feel that just by looking at it is just enough. Our guide, Ryan said that we’ll actually drop by there and let us check it out for ourselves.

We spent about 30 minutes at Bulog Dos Island to take some pictures, go around, and swim. It was quick but just enough time to do that in a very small island.


Floating at Bulog Dos Island


Channel Snorkeling at Bulog Dos Island 
(She's actually getting the trash)

No worries, there’s a reason for this. There’s not much to do or see there, it’s best to spend your time on the other islands that you’d wish you have more time to stay at just like us.

Don't forget to take selfies though! It's really a great place to at least get some photoshoot but then I'm not a model so selfie is just enough for me.




Your kid will also enjoy the island as Lia did. She loves the sand, the beach, and it's not rocky, it's all sand, and the water is clear.


I know, the photos are not enough here but again, spend more time on the next islands especially in Banana Island and Malcapuya Island of Coron since they have a lot of corals there, and more corals means more fishes.

TIP: Arrive before or around 12nn at Banana Island in Coron since the fish seems to take lunch around that time too and there are a lot of big fish goes to the corals to eat and you get this amazing view – which I missed because I was hungry but my friend Channel did swim and enjoyed the view while the fishes eat.

With this, I'd like to thank Blue Lagoon Adventure Travel and Tours for taking us to Bulog Dos Island and Ryan our guide.

The New Exotic Philippines this 2015

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Monday, July 06, 2015
If you’ve been reading my blog since it started, then you must have surely noticed that I’m changing a lot to my blog frequently.

Yes, just give me few months, less than a year most likely I’ll change it again. From the website theme, the logo, even my style of posting blog posts in this blog have changed at least once to twice a year – sorry!

And yes, you guessed it right, I’ve made some changes to Exotic Philippines blog, the good news is it’s only the logo, but I love it!

The New Exotic Philippines this 2015

Yes, we now have a mascot, and it’s no other else than me. That’s actually me, a cartoon version of me, or let me just say a Bitstrips version of me. I’ve made it myself using Bitstrips. What I like about this is that I’d be able to make different poses for this and if I feel like it, maybe some hilarious ones.
Sadly, I emailed Bitstrips for the permission to use this because I don’t want to break any law. After waiting for 2 weeks, and the need to update my blog, plus the want to use the new logo, I just have to announce this now, with our without their permission.

Hey Bitstrips, I did email. Don’t want to break your hearts guys but I’m very much willing to work with you guys to make this all legal – hopefully no financial terms, can’t afford. But surely, with this hopefully people who haven’t tried your app will try it now. *wink*

Any other more changes?

I will be also changing the blog’s design this is because it seems that the layout does not give me enough conversions like before – it lessens when I changed the theme, I guess you guys don’t like it much.

I’m still looking for a suitable theme for the blog, sorry, it’s just that Exotic Philippines blog is just under blogspot/blogger and it’s not easy to look for a well-designed theme that I will also like.
Give me few more months since I’m also busy with work, weddings (not my wedding), and itineraries (hurray for me!), and I’ll surely make everything here good for you guys. But please, bear with me and this current design and surely I’ll update it with a better one.

Got any suggestions for Exotic Philippines as a travel blog? Leave it as a comment below and if I like your idea, I may possibly implement it.

Hope you like the new logo too!

5 Things You’ll Love About Turtulele’s Ukulele

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Wednesday, July 01, 2015
5 Things You’ll Love About Turtulele Ukulele Cebu Philippines Guitar Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

My 13 years old niece have been asking and begging me to get her a Ukulele. I’m not sure at first if it’s because her friends have one or that she’s really into it. Since I live near this very known factory of guitars, I asked if how much is their Ukulele that’s good enough for a kid who wants to learn playing it. They did have a cheap one, but it looks like a toy, I check out the higher priced one but I’m not quite sure if it’s good enough – needed help from the experts.

As months passes by I forgot all about it but my niece keeps on reminding me about it every now and then – that she really would love to have her very own ukulele.

We’ll luckily for me and her, someone heard her prayers and it was granted by Turtulele’s and the DWYC's head of Product Development, Reginald Bernaldez. I brought it home, asked my brother to come over and bring the kids, and surprised my niece.

It’s been about 2 to 3 weeks already that she have been using her Turtulele, so I asked her few days ago what she loved about it so I can share it with everyone here who may also have kids who are begging for them to get one.

Fiberglass

5 Things You’ll Love About Turtulele Ukulele Cebu Philippines Guitar Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

Yes, it’s a fiberglass ukulele! It took Reginald a lot of time to finally get the perfect Turtulele, but it’s a great quality fiberglass ukulele.

Not Easy to Break

Because it’s a fiberglass ukulele, even your kids drop it by accident it won’t easily break or scratch. Believe me, I accidentally (not intentionally, promise) dropped it at the mall. Still looks perfect when my niece got it. She didn’t even know I dropped it when I told her, and she was like “Nooo! You didn’t!?!”

Light Weight

And because it’s a fiberglass, comparing to other ukulele it’s very light.

Design Quality

Other than being a fiberglass, the paint on it is actually hand painted. You may even ask them to personalize the ukulele for you.

Sound Quality

Reginald told us that the sound quality of this ukulele is like the P4,000 ukulele, I can’t prove this or guarantee this to you because I’m no expert but my niece brought her ukulele at school and she was able to compare the sound quality to her classmates ukulele. And my 13 years old niece and classmates proved that her gift from Turtulele has a higher sound quality comparing to her classmate’s expensive ukulele.

Like Turtle?

Well, Cebu Philippines is known for the guitar quality. And years back, they used to kill turtles for this because it is said that the turtle’s house gives you a really great sound quality. It was stopped of course, but the ukulele of Turtulele’s design was inspired by that.

5 Things You’ll Love About Turtulele Ukulele Cebu Philippines Guitar Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

So yes, NO TURTLES are harmed for this ukulele.

Want to grab one for yourself? You may find them here:

A 3D/2N Stay Review at Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Philippines
PROS:
* Great view. Grand View
* Great service. Awesome staff.
* Refreshing place
* Has a pool

CONS:
* Slow Internet.
* Too many stairs.

Book Hotel
It was last year when I won the Hotel Review Guru award from AsiaRooms.com, with that I get a chance to stay at any hotel in Asia that will then be paid by AsiaRooms. And since one of the places here in the Philippines that I’ve been wanting to go to is obviously of course Coron Philippines, I’ve searched online the choices of hotels in Coron and one of them that comes highly recommended is the Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron.

But then, since I was assigned to do a task in Boracay Philippines and decided to spend my AsiaRooms prize at Boracay Holiday Hotel. So, how did I still end up staying at Asia Grand View and give you guys my hotel review? The awesome people and owners of Asia Grand View have given me, along with 2 other bloggers a 3 days and 2 nights stay at the hotel. We were really thankful for them, because without their support I think we’ll be canceling the trip.

So yes, we got an x-deal for 2 nights stay at Asia Grand View Hotel in exchange for this honest review. I talked to them and it’s a part of our deal that I’ll still tell the truth to my review of the hotel – because if not I won’t review it at all.

Asia Grand View Hotel

 If you’re looking for a hotel in Coron that will be comfortable, quiet, and with a pool then you might want to check out Asia Grand View.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Philippines Hotel Review

The hotel has 6 superior rooms with a garden view, and 2 superior rooms with a bay view, and 12 deluxe rooms with a pool view (this is the room we got!). The hotel also offers scuba diving with a handsome scuba driver instructor, a whole day kayaking right at the back of the hotel, and obviously their beautiful swimming pool that I enjoyed so much.

The hotel is not within the small town of Coron, you may walk if you want to the town or take about 5 minutes ride via a tricycle. No worries, they can contact a tricycle for you. Few houses away from the hotel is a tricycle driver, so he can totally pick you up and the hotel staff knows him – so you’re safe. No near mini stores, or restaurants, but then again it’s just a few minutes walk for the ones who loves to walk.

The Hotel Rooms

I’ve asked them if they could let us tour around the hotel, and let us in to their rooms to take photos and see what the difference are with their rooms. Just to show you guys which room is better to sleep at the hotel – because I know that will also be your consideration in choosing hotels and a room.

The only difference between the Superior room with garden view and the Deluxe room with a pool view is that the superior is at the lower ground. The size is the same, the design, the whole room is totally the same, it’s just where it is placed that is different. And oh, the deluxe room is the one above, so you have to use the stairs.


Superior Room with Garden View / Deluxe Room with Pool View
The hotel gave us a Deluxe Room, there are a total of 4 adults and 1 kid (Lia), and yes we slept comfortably and we did fit in. That's because there are pull out beds under the beds which is good for 2.

The big bed by the way can also be split into two, just let them know when you book a room.

You also get a cable TV, a desk for you to work at when you book this room. I wasn't able t enjoy much the TV since when we got back from our tours we're all usually tired, just want to sleep, or I need to be online for my clients. But still, it was useful since Lia (the kid) love cartoons.

Superior Room with Bay View
There are only 2 rooms with bay view, but it’s more modern, and I think it’s more ideal for couples on a honeymoon. When I saw the door, I've already got the feeling I will like this room.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

What's great about this room is that you can actually just leave the door open and just lie down there and watch the great view.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

Just like the other rooms, this room also have a desk, TV, and fridge.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

The Superior room with Bay View is actually more on a modern style room with a bit mixed of what other rooms have. Whichever room that you'd want me to stay or choose, I'll be totally fine with either of the two.

The Hotel Bathroom

I always discuss the bathroom because for me it's really important to have a clean bathroom, and a bathroom that is well designed (in terms of the placement). I can tell you right away that I was happy on how everything is placed, unlike other hotels I've tried, I wasn't sure how should I squeeze myself into.


Superior Room with Garden View / Deluxe Room with Pool View
The bathroom for the Superior room with garden view and the Deluxe room with a pool view is really big. In the shower area alone, I think 2-3 people can fit in. It’s big, really clean, and well maintained.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

Basic toiletries is also provided. From toothbrush, paste, shampoo, conditioner, and soap is provided by the hotel. As for me, I have a specific brand of soap I need to use so I didn't used those.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

Having the bathroom in white is perfect. Guests can see right away that the bathroom is clean and that the hotel is well-maintained, plus I love white too.


Superior Room with Bay View
First thing I want to show you about the bathroom of this room is that glass near the fridge. The effect on the middle of the glass is blurry but you can actually see and know that someone is there (if someone's using it. 

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

I don't advice this room if you're with group of friends or family. But if you're on a honeymoon, this is the room that you should totally get.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

Right in front of that shower is the glass that I was talking to you about. So, if you're using it, and someone's at the room, all that person can see is a blurry view of your back. Still, it's obvious that you're naked.

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

Comparing this room's bathroom to other rooms, it's a lot smaller. I prefer the other room's design and size. It's more spacious compared to this.

The Hotel Restaurant

With the boat rides and activities in Coron, we were too tired to leave the hotel to eat so we have our dinner for 2 nights at the hotel. Here are a few photos and food rating for each dishes we ordered and served with.

The thing is, I totally forgot the name of each dishes. But I do still remember the taste. I'll update this post once I got it. LOL. Sorry!

4 Stars

Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Hotel Review Hilltop Hotel with Swimming Pool

4.5 Stars (a must try)

There are not a lot of choices for the buffet breakfast, but it was just enough for me. I eat the basics for breakfast, and usually I don't eat breakfast so I don't mind having a lot of choices. But comparing to other hotels that I've been, yes they have a fewer choices but the food are great, and the staff are happy type of people.

The Hotel Room Rates

I was able to get my hands on their 2015 room rates, so please take note that the rates may change anytime since this is the rate that was shared to me. It’s best to visit their official website (provided below) for the official room rates, or try to use the booking button below to get the best booking price for the hotel.

Asia Grand View Hotel Room

Deluxe Room
P 7,700/night
Superior Room
P 6,600/night

* Rate is good for 2 persons.

  • Kids 5-12 years old (sharing with parents) P350.00
  • Inclusions: daily breakfast, welcome drinks, use of swimming pools, activity center with billiards, darts, table tennis, board games, and videoke room.

Exotic Philippines Hotel Ratings

If you’re going to ask me if I’ll recommend the hotel to you? It depends. It depends on what you’re looking for in a hotel. If you don’t mind taking steps going to the lobby, to the restaurant, then go for it! I’ll highly recommend this place, their food is great, and their staff are happy people and accommodating. It’s the ideal hotel if you don’t want a hotel that is within the town to be away from the town noise (well, they’re not that noisy) but if you can easily wake up with a small sound then sleep here.

Some people also complaint about geckos here. When I stayed there it’s not that many (as some have described) I just heard about 2 or 3 of them and just saw 1 of them outside our door. They were not so noisy for 3 days we stayed there, were able to sleep well too.

There are also some complaints about the air conditioning during the day, well to be honest we didn’t stay there during the day since we got a lot of tours and activities outside the hotel. We just come back to the hotel around 6PM onwards, so I can’t really share or say if it’s true or not. But it was cold enough at night.

Anyway, the Exotic Philippines hotel rating for Asia Grand View Hotel in Coron is 4 out of 5 stars. I love the view of the hotel especially at night, their food are great thanks to their awesome Chef, and I really appreciate how clean the area is and keeping it clean. Not to mention their lovely staffs.

I deducted 1 star because after a whole day of swimming and all, it hurts a lot to go up and down just to eat or go outside the hotel. I even remember going to the lobby in the morning and saying “ouch!” every step. Also, every good hotel need a strong internet access, their Wifi is just available at the lobby and restaurant so you don’t get a free internet access at your room. I was also using my mobile internet on 2 different mobile networks, and it seems hard for me to find a good signal.

Other than the “too many steps” and the internet, I have no other complaints. I’m used with the geckos sounds and don’t mind it at all as long as they don’t jump on me.

Exotic Philippines Tips:

  • When you don’t want to walk too much, ask them to give you the nearest room. They have about 4 Deluxe rooms near the main building, and the nearest Superior room is the one with a bay view since it’s just below the restaurant and near to the hall.
  • If you're going to stay at this hotel for your entire visit in Coron, then no need to bring a towel since you can borrow their beach towels. 
  • If you want to chill, relax, want to be alone, or just want to get a great view. Asia Grand View Hotel is called “Asia Grand View” for a reason, and that is because they have an awesome view. Other than the restaurant’s view, go to the rooftop during sunset or sunrise, and surely you’ll love the view there.
  • Go night swimming. The view is priceless.

Taking Your Family for a Holiday

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Wednesday, June 03, 2015
Taking Your Family for a Holiday

When it's time for you to go on a family holiday, you may want some advice on how to proceed. This isn't too hard to learn about, you just have to get a few ideas in mind before you get started with it.

You need to pick a time to go on your holiday vacation with your family when you can all get work and school off. Perhaps during the summer break that schools have you can make sure your job will let you have your vacation time as well. Whatever the case may be, losing a job or getting a child in trouble at school wouldn't be something good to come back to after a relaxing holiday. You might even have some luck taking a holiday break to do your family trip, but know that it will be crowded in most places during this time.

You may want to think about getting a hotel room if you're going on a family holiday to a place that's out of town. Even if you have relatives there, it can be hard to get a whole family into another family's house for a few days. It might also be stressful to your hosts, so if you have the money a good hotel can save you a lot of trouble. Try getting a nicer hotel with a pool and free breakfast if you want to be sure that your family has something to do when they have down time.

If you're going to go to a theme park or some other kind of attraction somewhere, it's a good idea to get things booked well in advance. This is due to the fact that you may end up going all the way out to somewhere just to find out that the places are all booked up on the days that you were wanting to go to them. When you plan early, you can be sure that you get a spot at the place you want to go and the place you're trying to stay with your family.

You're now aware of what you can do the next time you want to go on a family holiday. This is great to do because you can spend the needed time with your family to create new memories. Use the great tips from here to help you with this and you'll do just fine!

20 List of Recommended Hotels in Davao City

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Monday, May 25, 2015
20 List of Recommended Hotels in Davao City

Last year, I was in Davao and was able to try out 2 hotels in Davao City which are the Park Inn by Radisson Davao and ALU Hotel in Davao. So obviously, I couldn’t endorse to you all the hotels in my 20 list of hotels in Davao City that I am making and sharing to you in this blog post,  but then these hotels comes highly recommended not only by yours truly, but also by their hotel guests.

So yes, I’m also basing my list on what others say about the hotel.

Also, I was able to search all hotels (that can be found online) before I went to Davao Philippines which gives me a total of 61 list of hotels in Davao City. So pretty much I have my list of candidates since last year and got a lot of choices, and with the help of other guest’s reviews I was able to filter it and bring it down to 20 hotels in Davao City that comes highly recommended.

20 Hotels in Davao City

Again, these list are not only from me but also from guests around the world who have tried their hotels. The list will also be automatically updated depending on their reviews and ratings from their new guests. The list may be a mix of Davao hotels and inns, some may also have a pool, some may also don’t. Some may be affordable, some may not. Since the list is according on their reviews and ratings.

So here are the list.

I’m happy that (as of today, while I’m writing this blog post) one of the hotels in the list of hotels in Davao City I've given you,  I’ve tried is within the top 5 recommended hotels, which is the Park Inn by Radisson Davao. It’s just at the back of SM Lanang Premier and walking distance to Microtel Inn and Suites Davao. So, maybe you want to check out my post too before booking any of these hotels.

The other hotel that I’ve also tried is within the top 10 recommend hotel, which is the ALU Hotel located in Downtown area.  If you’re looking for a cheaper hotel yet serves your needs, this is an ideal hotel for you to stay at, but again we have different preferences so please do check out my blog post on my ALU Hotel Davao review to see what you should expect from the hotel as one of the affordable hotels in Davao.
