6 Reasons White Chocolate Hills Resort Is Your Best Vacation Choice

It’s the best way to ruin your vacation…You do lots of research, you read reviews, you look at pictures.
You book a vacation, and look forward to that special moment when imagination becomes reality.
And yet, more often than not…the pictures were staged, the bad reviews were deleted or hidden, and your internet research has let you down….you end up sleeping next to a construction site, eating sub-par food that lacks passion and taste, and paying extra hidden fees for activities, outings, and even basic housekeeping services….What?!

This is why we are proud of White Chocolate Hills Resort – We are simple, authentic, and we genuinely care about creating the perfect atmosphere for relaxation and rest. Here are six big ways we stand taller than all of our competitors, and why you should choose us for your next vacation to the Philippines.

6. Our Pictures Aren’t Staged

This is possibly the best reason why we stand alone when it comes to our online presence…What you see is exactly what you get.
We do have a photographer on our staff, and yet she does absolutely no staging…of course, she knows all of the tricks to maximizing the aesthetics of a hotel room, a plate of food, or a landscape….but here at White Chocolate Hills Resort…genuine transparency to our potential guests is absolutely important.
When you see pictures like this:

Our Modern Relax Bungalow

You can be guaranteed that it is exactly what you’ll see once you get here.

( Unless we plant more plants and flowers, or you order a different breakfast option of course! )

 

 

 

5. Our Reviews Are Genuine, and We’re Not Afraid of Negative Comments

If you visit our TripAdvisor or Facebook Pages and read the reviews, you’ll notice that we take the good with the bad.
You’ll also notice that we’re quick to respond to feedback, and we genuinely care about our Guest’s opinions.
Not every resort or Hotel is as transparent as we are, and for good reason: If you found out their breakfast menu was bland, or that their rooms & facilities were dirty, falling apart, or outdated…they would lose their grasp on the tourism market!

We take a much different approach here.
We love our jobs, we love our Guests, and for quite a few of the staff here, this is our home!
We take good care of our home, and we invite you to come experience our genuine hospitality.
We know that we cannot please every single person in the world….but we’ll sure try!

 

 

 

4. Our Reputation Has Grown Organically…Just Like Our Food!

We don’t rely on heavy marketing campaigns, PR stunts, or industry networking to lure in customers.
Sure, when someone visits the resort and wants a few brochures to give to friends and family, that’s fine by us! …but we don’t actively fish for leads.
Other resorts dump money into PR management, Marketing Teams, and Event Sponsorship in order to get their name out into the world….
We know that if we provide excellent service, excellent quality food, and excellent, clean facilities, people will want to hang out and stay with us.
Over 4,000 Facebook ‘likes’ and 43 Five-Star ratings in less than five months is proof positive that we’re the new, young leaders of the pack in our industry.

We’d rather genuinely curious, happy, excited people here at our resort than someone who comes here based on false or faulty advertisements, or someone who comes here as part of a marketing deal. We show you the real ‘us’…so we can meet the real you!

 

 

 

3.  We’re Beautiful 😉
Not to toot our own horn, but our landscaping is impeccable, and so wonderful to look at and explore!White Chocolate Hills Resort 2064
We have over 17 different species of edible fruits, herbs, spices and plants….and we have over 10 different varieties of flowers.
Not to mention, we’ve created a ‘Little Bohol’, and own eight mini Chocolate Hills right here in Zamboanguita!
Our architecture is 100% unique to all of Asia, and there are no boxy apartment buildings or eyesores…just pure, green, lush plants….vibrant flowers, and mind-blowing views of Mt. Talinis mountain and Pacific Ocean from our deck.

2. We’re friendly, and Not Afraid of Having Fun

From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave us, you will be showered with warm smiles, great conversation, passionate service and the comfortable feeling of being at home with family.

Our staff are known for being accommodating to any and all requests and our office is open to any question you may have….from local activities, to cultural questions…even book or movie recommendations…they’ve got you covered.
Our Disco nights are easily becoming the talk of the neighborhood…dance tunes and affordable drinks…as well as room specials and free entrance.
We also have the best dance moves ever. 😉

Countless resorts in the Philippines have the reputation of being pretty to look at…but not so wonderful to talk to.
We’re not sure why…the Philippines is known globally for having the happiest people on the planet!….Maybe they’re just sad they don’t work with us.
If you want a hassle-free check-in, and a quick, painless checkout with absolutely zero hidden fees and expenses, book your stay with us and experience the easiest, most honest customer service in the country.

 

 

 

1. Rain Won’t Spoil Anything Here

Another vacation-killer is normally a rainy day…but not here!
If it rains, we have a giant deck that provides complete cover for you to relax and have fresh-brewed, locally-sourced coffee…one of our hot home-made soups…or even just to read a book or gaze at the storm.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can always head to the beach & go snorkeling…if you’re lucky you can spot turtles, seahorses, exotic corals and fish, and so much more.

With reasons like this….and many more waiting to be discovered by you….you simply cannot pass up the opportunity to call White Chocolate Hills Resort your new home away from home.

Call, message, visit or text us today and book a reservation….we promise you’ll leave with a smile, and maybe a few tears!

The Water Doesn’t Know How Old You Are

Good Morning, from White Chocolate Hills Resort!

Today’s blog post is all about swimming, our pool, and the ocean.

Unfortunately, our pool will be closed for three days for cleaning and maintenance…
As you know, the Holy Week was very busy here, and many people took advantage of their weekend by swimming in our huge crystal-clear pool.

We use a natural alternative to chemical chlorine, which is safer and easier on the skin than harsh chemical systems, but it also means our pool is more delicate, and needs to be used properly….

This means of course, Proper Swimwear – No cotton fabrics, T-Shirts or Jean shorts, etc….Proper Sanitary Care – Shower before you enter the pool, Don’t swim if you’re sick or have an infection or open wound, etc….and the most important of all, Proper Pool Etiquette – No spitting, chewing gum, or peeing in our pool!

With a large number of people, it can be harder to keep track of who’s adhering to our pool rules and regulations, and unfortunately, it seems like a few too many people didn’t read the rules.
😦

Image

Our pool is one of the many amazing parts of our resort experience here at White Chocolate Hills, and we want to make sure everyone enjoys themselves…but also respects our other guests who want to enjoy themselves too!

As always, we have 2000 square metres of beachfront that is accessible for our guests to use….so if you don’t have proper swim gear, or if you want to play water games like Marco Polo, Sharks & Minnows, or Chicken Fights…you’re much better off using the beach…not only will it be safer for you, but it will also ensure you’re not disturbing a guest who can’t swim as well as you, or who just wants to relax and float around.

edit2

Another concern we have at our Resort is the waterfall wall pictured above….it can become very slippery when wet, and we see many people climbing and sitting on it…in our rules, we tell you not to do this as it can be very easy to fall!

Also, the small pool that the waterfall flows into is NOT a children’s swim area or even a swimming pool at all!
It is actually the cleaning & filtration system for the larger pool above it…it would be very easy to become injured if you were to swim here, because it contains vents for filtering the water…small children are at risk of getting their fingers and toes trapped if they play here.

When you visit us, it is very important for you to read and follow the rules set in place!
We have them for a reason, and we want you to be aware of them so you can enjoy your visit with us safely.

Did you know:
Humans have recorded the art of swimming since prehistoric times.
The earliest record of humans swimming come from cave paintings dated to be about 7,000 years old, and swimming has been mentioned in the Bible, the Illiad & Odyssey, and even the Epic of Gilgamesh.
The first swimming book was penned by a German Language Professor…Nikolaus Wynmann, and it was titled ‘Der Schwimmer oder ein Zweigespräch über die Schwimmkunst‘, which means ‘The Swimmer or A Dialogue on the Art of Swimming.

Everyone can learn to swim, including babies!
Here’s a really amazing video of a 21 month old swimming!!

Not only is it the most fun activity in summer to participate in, but it’s also extremely healthy for your body…it builds and tones muscles, works to strengthen your lungs and other organs, relaxes and de-stresses the body, is used for rehabilitation of victims of accident or trauma, and even improves posture!

Of course, there are always risks when swimming, especially in the ocean, where you can encounter jellyfish, sea urchins and sharp rocks, but if you take care and are aware of the dangers of your area, you can easily swim worry-free anywhere in the world!

Well, that’s all for today!
We hope you enjoyed today’s post, and we encourage you as always to comment, like and share our blog posts with friends and family.

Happy Swimming!

Image

Now for a little bit of humor to end today’s post.
At the bar, we love to listen to awesome dance tunes…and this summer season, we think the best song is YLVIS’s ‘What’s The Fox Say?’

We love this song for a good reason: Our Resident Resort Mascot’s name is ‘Foxy’!
To our knowledge, no one’s been able to figure out what our Foxy says…..Until now!

If you know your memes, you will know the popular trend of doge, which is how we’ve learned exactly what Foxy is saying these days!

We present to you: Cool Foxy

Choosing Organic – Taste The Difference!

Hello again, from White Chocolate Hills Resort!
What a beautiful day it’s been…A great day for swimming, indeed!

Today’s blog is all about food!
Here at the resort, we are committed to serving delicious, healthy, organically-grown food.

The fact of the matter is, organic food options are not only tastier and more nutritious than pre-packaged items, but they are more sustainable for the environment than ‘one-harvest’ GMO plant varieties, and also contain less harmful chemicals, sprays, additives and modifications.

Pineapple!

Here at the resort, we are absolutely crazy about sustainable gardening & agriculture practices!
We have a fully-operational aquaponics system, that grows green onion, tomatoes, red radish & okra, and houses our own fish.
We have an organic garden for the kitchen that grows pineapple, tomatoes, lemongrass, red & green bell peppers, chilies, and many others.
We also have a large variety of fruit trees, such as papaya, jackfruit, large calamansi, coconut, banana, guyabano, and even grapes!

We work hard to reduce our kitchen waste, and maintain an organic compost that benefits our vegetable garden as well as the other plants around the property.
