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If you found out their breakfast menu was bland, or that their rooms & facilities were dirty, falling apart, or outdated…they would lose their grasp on the tourism market!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

Our First Caturday…and A Story About Cat-Island

Image

Good Morning!
You all know what day it is at the White Chocolate Hills Resort blog…..it’s Caturday!

Recently, we carved a very special treat for guests, and it fits perfectly into today’s blog.
Our chef is amazingly talented when it comes to food art, and this Hello Kitty watermelon carving was no exception.

 

Image


Doesn’t it look tasty?
(Spoiler Alert: It was.)

Fun Fact:
When our Elite Office Geek, Jessica first moved to the Philippines a year ago, she adopted over ten stray cats!
She would spay and neuter them, make sure they had all their shots, and gave them a forever-home.
Here is a picture of one of her adopted cats, ‘Splatter’ having a nap:

Image

Did you know?
In Japan, there are two islands that are home to just sixteen people, and one hundred people respectively, and collectively over Three Hundred feline fur-balls!

These islands used to be fishing villages, and ‘Neko Shima’ island used to cultivate silkworms.
Mice are natural predators to silkworms, so the locals brought in cats to keep the rodent population down….now, a few decades later, the island is a tourist attraction for every cat-lover on the planet!

Image

Here at White Chocolate Hills Resort, our Resident Canine Mascot, Foxy tends to keep cats and dogs away from the property, but sometimes at night, you can see cats hunting on the beach for fish and other tasty treats.

That’s all fur today 😉
See you tomorrow, for ‘Selfie Sunday’!

It was an awesome night…lots of jokes & laughing… Anna & Niecel gave an impromptu concert with coke-bottle guitars and rice-container drums, singing silly songs about living in the mountains and going to church, complete with wild, dramatic dance moves….it was definitely a sight to see!

Pork...So Good.


Our Delicious Barbecued Pork!

After eating, everyone played in the ocean, sat around talking, and just hung out for a while before cleaning up and heading home, or to bed….It was super fun!

A Special Thank You to the owners of White Chocolate Hills Resort for giving their staff a fun barbecue night!
Everyone really enjoyed themselves, and went to sleep with full tummies!

Speaking of full, thanks to our awesome maintenance crew, our pool was drained, fully cleaned and refilled in just one day!
That means we’re back once again with the cleanest pool in Zamboanguita, ready for you to bring your swim gear & your friends to our wonderful little resort beside the sea.

We got a few pictures of the empty pool…you can really get a feel for how big our pool really is when it’s empty!

Well, that’s it for today’s blog!

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

Welcome To Our Blog!

Welcome to our new blog!
Thanks for dropping by and connecting with us.

This blog will be updated at least once a week with news, special events, pictures and other fun content relevant to our resort.
Since this is the first entry, let us introduce ourselves!

secretsight

We are a reservation-only resort, meaning we try to keep things here quiet, peaceful and relaxing, so that you, our guest, can feel the ultimate in hospitality.

We don’t like our guests to feel crowded, so we won’t let just anyone walk in.
In order to stay with us, you can make a reservation up to three days prior to your visit.

We do, however, invite you to come visit our pool and eat lunch on Saturdays and Sundays for a greatly reasonable fee.

poolsunset

It only costs 150 pesos for you to visit, and that fee is a consumable fee.
This means that if you visit us, have lunch, and the total bill costs 200 pesos, you will only have to pay 50 pesos if you have paid the entrance fee before ordering.

The pool fee is also 150 pesos, which is a really great deal that not many of the other resorts in town can offer.
The pool fee for children aged two to ten years old is only 100 pesos, and children under one year old can swim for free.

All the kids need to be supervised at all times…since we are a private resort, there is no lifeguard on duty, and you swim at your own risk and responsibility.

Speaking of food… Glad you asked!

We are delighted to offer a fully organic menu, with over twenty unique items to choose from.
We have everything from Australian steaks, to pork adobo, delicious salads with house-made dressings, delectable deserts, and many other mouth-watering dishes.

We have two organic vegetable gardens, two on-site smokers for creating tasty smoked sausages and fish, and we also have a fully functioning aquaponics system….we are crazy about healthy living and do not use pre-packaged or pre-cooked foods.

Here is a great picture of our bartender Ramil with one of our fancy fruit plates!

Sounds good so far, right?

If you would like to have a longer term stay with us, our rooms and housekeeping team can’t be matched.

We ask a minimum two nights stay, but if you would like to stay for only one night, please add 25% to the prices.
Alternatively, if you stay for four weeks, subtract 35% from our prices!

We have two types of rooms to choose from, and both of the rooms have two separate designs.

Our Relax Bungalow is 40 sq meters, and the price per night for two adults is 3999 Pesos, which is about 66 Euros, or $88

Our Deluxe Bungalow is 60 sq meters, and costs 5999 Pesos, about 100 Euros, or around $134.

Children under four are free of charge if sharing the bed, or you can rent an extra bed for 1000 Pesos a night.

Both rooms include state of the art air conditioning units that are completely silent, a mini-bar, an in-room safe, a fully modern bathroom with beautiful stone mosaic floors, towels, complimentary perfume oil, complimentary breakfast, and free WiFi in the bar area outside.

Our ‘modern style’ design features sleek black wood furniture for a high-end, contemporary mood.
Our ‘native style’ bungalow design features Philippine-made & finished bamboo furniture, and creates a very natural, earthy mood.

Here at the White Chocolate Hills resort, your comfort and relaxation are our top priority, so don’t hesitate to call, email, or comment right here on our blog to find out when you can visit us!

In our next entry, we will show you some pictures of the rooms, and also explain our story: How we got our name, and more about our owners and staff.
Thanks for dropping by, and have a wonderful day!
