Villa 21: Our Home in Misibis Bay Resort and Casino


We arrived in Misibis Bay Resort and Casino at noon time. Check in was smooth and fast, and our villa was ready by the time we came in. The resort was even generous to upgrade our Garden View room to a villa! The Garden View rooms are the newest addition to Misibis' roster of about 90 rooms. These are located adjacent to the main resort, in a village-like setup.

Our villa is located near the lagoon pool, as well as a few steps away from the infinity pool, the beach, and the restaurant. The location is perfect!

When we arrived at the villa, we were surprised to see how beautiful it had turned out since my last visit in 2008! It's now beautifully furnished with pieces that radiate a luxurious feel. The queen-sized bed houses soft and huge-able pillows and soothing comforters for a well-deserved R&R.

There is also a daybed next to one of the huge glass windows that can serve as an extra bed if you're a group of three.

The entire villa is enveloped by blinds that you can easily adjust to suit your preference -whether you want to see the lush gardens outside, or you want to hibernate from the outside world. It's up to you.

Upon arrival, there were complimentary welcome fruits and  bottles of water. The villa has a small dining area  so you need not worry about spilling your coffee on the bed! At night, slices of sweetened bananas are delivered right at your doorsteps. Should you get hungry anytime, room service is available from the resort's restaurant, Spice Market.

There's a Krups coffee-making facility, and a daily supply of their signature coffee beans and apple tea. I love the idea of having my doze of caffeine fix within reach. I usually have coffee after a big meal, or after doing water activities to keep me warm. Or when I wake up, just before taking a shower. I'm such a coffeeholic.

There's a console behind the bed that serves as a working table with these Misibis  Bay signature stationery. And do those leaf leis look familiar to you? Yes, the same as what I got from Pangalusian in El Nido! Very Filipino! I like it!

There were also two complimentary woven bags which I really adore! It's perfect for keeping your stuff with you while roaming around the resort.

And now, let's go to the bathroom. Taking a shower here is such a pleasure with all the Hansgrohe bathroom fixtures. The water pressure is strong enough, making the massage function of the hand shower a perfect treat after a long day at the eco park. The rain shower is soothing, too!. Plus, did I mention that there's a bath tub where you can enjoy a warm dip any time you want?

The bathroom amenities are something I should brag about -- all L'Occitane products are everywhere in the bathroom. I heart the smell...very spa-like.

The bathroom is spacious and well-lit. You'll never feel claustrophobic.

There well-lit closet has a safety deposit box that can fit your laptops and other gadgets. There's also an iron and a board just in case you need to smoothen up some of your wardrobe.

The slippers are made of abaca, a famous material in the Bicol region.


The villa has glass windows and sliding doors all over. Lush gardens surround it, so you will really feel like you are in a tropical paradise. It's so conducive for relaxation and having some me-time.


Our villa has a small  veranda by the garden where  I would have my first cup of coffee everyday.

At the veranda

Just a few steps away from our villa, we found this tree that intrigued me a lot. It has leaves all over as if it's a huge bear covered in thick fur. I wonder what tree is this.

What tree is this?

Like other resorts, there are stations where you can wash your feet before entering your respective villas. This is very important as it does not only keep your villa clean and free of sand; it also helps in preventing sand from getting into the shower drain which can eventually lead to clogging.

"Foot" for the gods

Our villa can be connected to another villa that faces the lagoon pool. This is a  good idea especially if you are going with a big group or with your whole family.
