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reason: If you found out their breakfast menu was bland, or that their rooms & facilities were dirty, falling apart, or outdated…they would lose their grasp on the tourism market!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!

To Be Creative Means To Be In Love With Life

Good Morning Blog-Readers!

If you visit the markets and out-of-the-way village areas in the Philippines, you will be lucky enough to witness the impressive creativity of the Philippine people.
Hand-carved lamps, chairs, lizards, masks, and necklaces are only a few of the items available as keepsakes of your visit here.

One group of people in particular, the Ifugao, have been globally hailed as among the best in wood carving.
The art of Ifugao handcarving has been passed down from generation to generation, and the largest living village today can be found on Asin road, on the way to Baguio City.

The 1st Pa-ot Festival in Tadiangan, Benguet took place last May 22-24, and was a spectacular festival showcasing the Ifugao people’s innate ability for producing beautiful, intricate carvings.
There was also a native wine-making & tasting event, cultural dance & song clinic, backstrap weaving contest, broom-making clinics, and rattan weaving demonstrations.

Traditionally, Bulul sculptures were used for ceremonies centered on healing & rice production…the statues were highly prized and represented ancestors, guardian gods & spirits.
Today, many different items are carved, and not only just out of wood…sometimes stone is used.

Here at White Chocolate Hills Resort, if you look carefully, you can see that we have quite a few hand-carved masks and statues…keeping this lovely art alive is vitally important, and each unique piece has cultural value and significance.
If you have the chance to stop by Malatapay Market, there is a souvenir shop run by three brothers that know the art of hand-carving, and create amazingly detailed pieces for sale at very affordable prices.
Tell them we sent you!

Humpday Heroes

Good Afternoon, Lovely Readers!

As you know, Wednesdays are all about honoring those who are doing great things in the Philippines to help the people and communities they live in.

This week we’re not so ready to reveal who we’ve chosen, but we can give some hints for next Wednesday, when we hope to have a full interview!

Image

  • This person came to the Philippines on vacation, and fell in love right away with our country.
  • They decided they wanted to make a difference after seeing children carrying water on foot for long distances in jerrycans.
  • They’re younger than thirty years old, and yet began two major projects in the Philippines…one to provide people with clean water, and one that helps people create a livelihood for themselves.
  • They went on a cross-country ‘Motour’ and have been in almost every major city of the Philippines!
  • Their latest project reinvests 50% of their profits back into the communities….That’s amazing.

 

Can you internet-savvy types guess who we’re talking about?
Post your guesses in the comments section below, and stay tuned next week to see if you were right!

Unexplored Paths Lead to Undiscovered Treasures

Good Afternoon to Our Awesome Readers!

This morning, before all the excitement started to ramp up for the day, our Elite Office Geek Jessica, our Talented and Charismatic Waitress, Miss Jenelyn, and our Second In Command Kitchen Master, Jai Jai went for a quick grocery run to Malatapay Market.

Image

For those who haven’t experienced Malatapay, we can’t even begin to describe the sights and sounds.
You have to go early, otherwise you miss out on the spirit & sense of a true old-world marketplace, and you run the risk of missing the Lechon…said to be, hands-down, THE best Lechon in the entire country.

You want something?
Name it, and you’ll find someone selling it:
Fresh fish, chicken, pork, beef, etc…
Vegetables & Fruit
Jewelry and clothing…from cheap trinkets to pearls and silver.
You need a cow, a goat or some chickens? No problem.
Need DVDs, comics or video games? They have you covered….even before the theatres do… 😉

One of our favorite vendors there is a store owned by three brothers…..they sell beautifully hand-carved and hand-sculpted souvenirs…necklaces, bone pipes, seashell lamps, and inspiring original artwork.

We managed to get a few shots, but we were only there for a quick run, so we didn’t get to visit the whole area.

Enjoy the pictures, and we’ll see you tomorrow!
Please don’t forget to share, like and follow our Blog, Twitter account, and our Facebook page!

Virtue In Work And Virtue In Rest… Use Both, Overlook Neither

Good Morning, from your friends at White Chocolate Hills Resort!

We hope you had a relaxing, safe holiday weekend!
This weekend at the resort was very busy, but also very fun…everyone smiling and having a great time, relaxing and letting their stress melt away.

Today’s blog post is just a quick update, some inspiration, and a little bit of humor for fun!

We know many businesses like to treat their workers with working vacations, and White Chocolate Hills Resort is one of the best resorts you can find to cater to your employees.

Our resort is quiet, private, and ideal for productive inspiration….
Our landscape is pleasing to the eyes & imagination, soft, windy breezes rejuvenate the spirit, and the ocean’s gentle heartbeat can be heard in the distance, soothing the mind.

The rooms at White Chocolate Hills feature state of the art Plasma Ionic Air Conditioning…completely silent and excellent for your health…research shows that our air conditioning units eliminate up to 99.9% of serious airborne diseases like SARS & Influenza A.
We have an in-room safe for valuable items, a mini-bar in case you get thirsty and don’t feel like sitting at the outdoor bar, Hot & Cold modern shower for your total relaxation & comfort, Free & fast WiFi connection at the bar area, and of course, our giant pool & beachfront area in case you want to unwind and spend time away from the computer for a while.

Not to mention of course, our food nourishes you from the inside out, is totally organic and house-made, very tasty and highly affordable…our portion sizes are an amazing value for your money!

Image

For those businesses who would like to hold meetings, presentations, or events at our resort, we have some excellent news….Our Events Room is almost fully completed! Once finished, it will be able to accommodate 30-40 people.

Image

Better yet, the use of our many different outdoor areas is completely free!
You only have to pay our very affordable 150 Peso consumable entrance fee.

If you and your group get hungry… Don’t worry!
For a minimum of 30 people, we offer a very tasty buffet with four different options & price ranges to choose from….everything from pasta and salad, to seafood, chicken, pork & steak…we’ve got your hungry employees covered, so you can focus on the important stuff.

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

That’s all today from White Chocolate Hills Resort!
