Although I stayed at Villa Igang, Raymen Beach Resort is just its neighbor. It was decided that the beach, considered as the most popular in Guimaras, was worth a visit.

Villa Igang Park formerly known as Puerto del Mar is the happy midpoint between sky and seabed. Whichever direction the eye chooses to go, it will catch only a sense of rightness. The resort was originally planned as a conservation area for tropical foliage and marine life and important lines are drawn toward this end. Virgin coral beds and old trees are equally protected with love, and a keen sense of the future. It is located at Poblacion, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras adjacent to other resorts along Alubihod Bay.” (Source)

Arriving at Villa Igang on a drizzling day one February afternoon found the resort nearly empty save for a few guests.

I was hoping for a nice sunset view but was disappointed.

Though the resort, on a sunny day, gives one beautiful views, and photos, like the few that Edcel Suyo was able to capture HERE and HERE.

I, for myself was hampered with an 8th-month pregnancy, so I was not able to explore the resort and its cliffs, caves and views as much as I would have liked.

Nagarao Island, Guimaras – The Forgotten Resort

Guimaras By August 14, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , 4 Comments

In the photos, the resort looks really nice. They have a website here and it’s still up – www.nagaraoresort.com, but when you get there, you can’t help but feel sad. The resort is really what it says on the website – a beach resort all your own. The resort holds so much potential, you would want to buy it and run it yourself so it can be as nice as it should be.

The staff does not disappoint in terms of service though.

Nagarao Island has a sister inn in Iloilo City – Iloilo City Inn.

Iloilo City Inn is a very quaint inn situated at 113 Seminario St, Jaro, Iloilo – right in the heart of the historical and cultural district of Jaro, a few minutes ride to downtown Iloilo City. It has 12 airconditioned rooms with Cable TV, Wi-fi access and hot and cold showers.

The inn is where reservations and bookings for Nagarao Island Resort are made.

There is also a German restaurant on the ground floor called Bavaria Restaurant and its homey ambiance will make waiting for transport pick-up a pleasant experience.

If transportation arrangements were made with the resort, van pick-ups for guests bound for Nagarao Island are also made here. The van will pick up guests and take them to the wharf, where you will need to take a 10-15 minute motorized outrigger ride from Fort San Pedro to Jordan Wharf in Guimaras.

From Jordan Wharf, your travel by land via jeep or van to Kupo Wharf in Brgy. San Isidro for an hour and from there, Nagarao’s private motorized pumpboat will ferry you to the island in less than 10 minutes.
