About the Resort

Blanketed by nature, time stops to afford you to immerse in whatever you wish to do

Between Bagac’s verdant mountains and the blue waters of the West Philippine Sea, La Jolla Luxury Beach Resort is a cocoon for relaxation amidst the beauty of nature.

An uphill drive on a private road lined with flame trees showcases panoramic views of verdant mountains and rolling hills playfully dipping into valleys: a foretaste of the visual feast to come. Rising from what was once a mango orchard, the preponderance of mango trees throughout the grounds provides not only shade and lushness, but also gives La Jolla a distinctively refreshing ambience. More so, during the fruit bearing season when these trees are heavily laden with luscious mangoes in various stages of ripeness.

TROPICAL LANDSCAPE

The secret of La Jolla’s flourishing grounds is that the luxury resort’s layout is worked around the existing trees in the estate. The structures were constructed to nestle in between the property’s many trees, only a minimal number were cut to accommodate these to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings. Its 5.5 hectares of teeming tropical vegetation is the fruit of allowing the trees to dictate the physical flow of the resort.

Blanketed by nature, time stops to afford you to immerse in whatever you wish to do.

It can be an early morning walk around the grounds’ tiered gardens bathed in dew while birds flit and flutter about on your stroll down to the beach.

Or you can push your physical self to do water sports or face the challenge of beach volleyball.

Swimming has its varied choices, with a lagoon inspired swimming pool amidst a tropical setting to create a natural vibe and a children’s play area adjacent to it; an infinity pool and jacuzzi sitting on the mountain slope; and a beach with gentle waves of its cerulean waters endlessly caressing the shore.
