Feature Friday highlights businesses, people, fashion, and basically anything under the sun!
Celebrating my birthdays for two consecutive years outside Ozamiz had been helpful for me to forget that it’s my birthday on that day. Last 2012 was in Albay and last 2013 was in Iloilo. I did that ‘coz I wanted to forget my special day so I won’t feel lonesome in any sense. And since we (JCI-Ozamiz Red Rose) missed NatCon this year, I ain’t got a birthday destination but I’m beyond glad to have had celebrated the actual day of my birthday with my family.
So with this, my birthday for this year deserved another destination! And I’m happy that there’s Punta Meriam Beach Resort and Spa which is only a 40-minute drive away from Ozamiz. There’s no hassle bringing kids over for we don’t have to endure a very long drive with kulit ones.
Punta Meriam Beach Resort and Spa is conveniently located just a few meters away from the public market of Panaon, Misamis Occidental. It is accessible to any vehicle because the road leading to it is not bumpy. Right from the hustle and bustle of the highway, you’ll enter a tranquil place where you can see a vast expanse of the sea.
Aside from the beach, Punta Meriam also has a swimming pool for the kids to enjoy. For swimmers out there, you won’t like it because you can’t have a fill of it. It is only good for kids and for pictorial purposes.
Since I’m into much pictorial, I enjoyed the place quite pretty well for its rustic design. I love the details of their wood works and they are Instagram and Pinterest worthy.
Other amenities are the resort basics – a function hall, clean toilet and bath, cottages for day use and rooms for overnight use. However, since the name says “Beach Resort and Spa”, we haven’t found any spa at all. And when we asked the staff about their massage, they simply replied that there’s no hilot available. Hehe. Maybe the hilot is on call.
Anyway, they also have beach volley, boating and island hopping to a sand bar which we haven’t tried anymore. But the kids enjoyed their kayak session spearheaded by cuzzy Rio.
And what I like about the resort is the safety they give to their guests. The life guards are so strict in looking closely to each child in tow. With that, you don’t have to keep watch all day so you can also have some time to catch up with the others, have some me time to do muni-muni, or take a nap while enjoying the calming sea breeze.
If the kids enjoyed, then that makes a happy tita! Tag along the whole family for a fun-filled day at Punta Meriam Beach Resort and Spa. I suggest that you bring your own food and beverage because it’s corkage-free so you don’t have to buy inside the resort. Food inside costs an arm and a leg, you know.
