Misibis Bay - The Sweetest Escape



Misibis Bay is sweeter the 2nd time around! ♥

Due to the unfortunate experience we had on our day tour in Misibis Bay, the management granted us an overnight Gift Certificate in a Garden View Room (worth P20,000), which was later on upgraded to a Junior Suite Deluxe (worth P27,000) for free! This generous gesture delighted me big time.

Airfare tickets are not included of course, but luckily we scored round trip tickets to Legazpi for around P782.00 only (c/o Cebu Pacific's P12 promo). Much cheaper and convenient than taking the bus.

And off we go again to Misibis Bay. As soon as our plane landed, the staff of Misibis Bay was already waiting for us. Free airport transfers and on-board refreshments (yummy cookies!) for Misibis guests.

Misibis Bay once again

As usual, some dancers welcomed us by performing the traditional Ibalong dance. After that we headed to the reception area right away. Refreshments and a little snack were served.

refreshments and snacks were served while checking-in

The reservation officer asked for my ID and a deposit fee of P2,500 (which will be refunded upon our checkout). Also, since we're a group of 3, we paid an additional P3,888 for the extra person. After that, the lady handed their suggested itinerary for us. There's truly a lot of things to do in Misibis Bay.

Since we arrived 4 hours prior the standard check-in time, I asked the officer in charge if the room is ready. She said yes, we may use the room as early as 10am. Very nice. And to our bigger surprise- she informed us that we got a free upgrade again. We'll be staying in a One Bedroom Deluxe, a poolside villa! Rate per night is P38,000 and I'll be getting this for free! Spell happiness! ^_^

Villa 22 - One Bedroom Deluxe

with flash ^_^
ang ganda!

The size of this villa is 65 square meter. Huge enough for 2-3 occupants.
Now the bedroom..

full sized glass windows and a big flat screen tv

2 double sized beds with ultra soft sheets and pillows

and a JBL ipod dock

native bags are given to guests too, for free!

I loved the dim light effect of our villa! As you know, I prefer my own room to be dim as well.
Now for the bathroom..

spacious bathroom with bathtub and shower room

2 sinks + a lot of toiletries

Armada Sport and Acca Kappa toiletries (only!)

Luxurious indeed, and another one of its kind is this easy pool access.

easy access to the pool ♥

It was such a delight to have a gorgeous villa for a day.

oh yes, i love this luxury!

Here's a panoramic shot of the poolside villas.

Who wouldn't turn into a camwhore if this place is all yours?

this is where the Korean stars 2NE1 stayed
yes, Sandara Park and the gang were also there in Misibis at the time. ano ngayon? hehe

astig dito!

oakley addict!

staycation at its finest

Im very much overwhelmed with the entitled GC that we received. It was more than we expected.


At 1pm, we decided to have lunch. Since we already tried the lunch buffet in Misibis, we chose to have ala carte dishes this time.

Lunch at Spice Market

Crispy Lechon Kawali - Bagoong Rice with Mango - Prawn Sinigang - Ice Candies

Surprisingly, these dishes were really yummy! Each dish is already good for 3 persons. We spent a total of P1,500- inclusive taxes and tip. A bit expensive but we concluded it's just right for a meal inside a luxurious resort. Besides, the dishes were really yummy, not to mention the very attentive staff - Ken. We're satisfied. Btw, these creamy buko pandan ice candies are free of charge. Rem ate 4 ice candies and I had 2. Ang sarap! ^_^


After lunch, we strolled the area and found ourselves in the pool. Still, there's not much guests. Only staff are everywhere to assist you with everything you might need. Service deluxe at its finest.

this is my favorite pool. these turtles provide soothing water massage. ♥

We then decided to take a nap and enjoyed our luxurious villa. Good thing we already visited these attractions the last we visited Misibis Bay.

the Cathedral, thr nearest church to Misibis Bay
obviously for wedding purposes


At 4pm, it's time for the non-motorized activities. These activities are free of charge. The gloomy weather was just perfect. Who wants sunburns?

hobie cat sailing in a gloomy day

it's interesting to know that this sailing boat is non-motorized. only the wind controls this boat.

hobiecat sailing is like banana boat ride- the speed, splashes, and the fun!

The next we tried is Wind Surfing. And it's not easy at all. Ang bigat. Ang hirap i-control. I commend the patience of the staff for teaching us, one by one.

ang bigat!

ang hirap mag-wind surfing =(
good thing is the staff did it for me, haha!

I had no interest to do Kayaking after, but seems I had no choice. Haha Let's do it then.

kayaking in Misibis

The wind and the wave direction were so strong that we cannot control our sailing anymore. The staff rescued us. Haha

I salute every staff for warmly accommodating us. Our bottled water and fresh towels awaited us after we've done an activity. Thank you mga bossing!

non-motorized water activities in Misibis Bay

We have tried snorkeling in Marina before so we skipped doing that one.
Aside from these activities, guests can also do parasailing, jet ski, wake boarding, diving, ziplining, and a lot more. You can also visit some interesting spots nearby like the glass cathedral and amphitheater. Click here for Misibis Bay day tour.


We went back to our villa and enjoyed taking a bath in their luxurious bathroom. One of the best bath time ever!

At 8pm, we went out to have dinner. Buffet is served but guests have the option to order ala carte dishes. Since I think the buffet spread is not very exciting, we chose to have pizza and pasta meals instead. What I love most - my favorite pumpkin soup and mango panna cota were given as complimentary appetizer and dessert! Super like! ♥

pizza elizaldy (house specialty), pumpkin soup, and DIY pizza (with 5 toppings)
the pasta is too spicy. the pizza had overwhelming toppings. the soup - divine!

complimentary mango panna cota for dessert Ü

Anyway, there's a live band performance too. And since the Korean pop stars and the crew were also there, the band played some Korean songs that night. Yes, pasikat. ^_^

live band entertainment

We spent a total of P1,500 for this dinner. Good enough specially they gave us that remarkable pumpkin soup, mango panna cota, and superior customer service. =)


Misibis Bay at night

The scene is nothing but glamorous and elegant. Agree?
No booze for us that night. We chose to have coffee and tea instead in our own veranda.

our villa - the first one on the right


Come next morning, we had our complimentary breakfast buffet in their restaurant. Still, there's not much guests. I believe 2NE1 had a good choice, Misibis Bay has privacy.

What's for breakfast?

dried pusit, danggit, fresh salad, waffles, pancakes, tocino, sausages,
cheese and bread, congee, omelet station, angus beef tapa


a good morning indeed

Misibis Bay is SWEETER the 2nd time around ♥


Before going home, we strolled the beach area for the last time.

beachfront villas with beach beds

for the record, the sand in Misibis Bay is not pink ^_^

The sand may not be pink, but that's not Misibis is all about. It's about the world-class service. It's about luxury and exclusivity. Mind you, it's 1 of the 3 resorts in the Philippines that is accredited by the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

We concluded it was really an outstanding experience in Misibis Bay. I have never experienced this kind of service until I stayed there. This is the finest. Im proud that there's kind of luxury resort in Legazpi.

..and yes, Im willing to save money to afford a Misibis Bay getaway in the future.

thank you so much for that outstanding experience
as of this writing, im still nostalgic about it

Naku, kundi, sira agad repustasyon nila! :) Haha! :) Pero super ganda ah. :) Awesome pics! :) Parang gusto ko na din pumunta dun! :) Pero antayin ko muna ung less pricey rooms nila! :) Ubos savings naman kasi ang per night rate nila. Hehe. :) Di mo pa rin sinubukan ung zipline? :)

What do you mean it's not sponsored - they gave you a GC for the inconvenience when you first visited. You're a blogger with a decent following. Go figure. That's how Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet got started.

Sheena Bree said...

Ang ganda dito Te! :)

Ivy Rose said...

I super love your blogs. I hope to visit them all when i come home. Its more fun in the Philippines indeed :)

We didn't have those Armada sunblock though. :(

Chyng said...

hi sol!
aww i saw you were in misibis too! lovely no?

Anonymous said...

hi chyng! nice blogs!
15 of us were at the misibis just last week. we simply didn't like the place. overrated. facilities were just so so. food was not good too. very expensive day tour. we went by land from legazpi, the scenery going there was the one worth the trip. :-) having second thoughts of recommending it to my other friends.
