Our Anniversary Getaway (Part I)

Hubby and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary last September 11th. For a change, we went to a beach resort called Sunset Bay Beach Resort in San Fernando City, La Union. I've seen this  place in the internet a couple of years ago and just by looking at the photos, I was so captivated. I've seen quite a few beach resorts while browsing the net but this one really caught my eye. I told hubby about it and he agreed that we spend our anniversary there. So a day before our anniversary, hubby and I went there with my youngest brother as the driver. It was a two hour drive from our place. It rained while we were on the way but I was glad that when we reached La Union, there was no rain there.

Sunset Bay Beach Resort is set in well established gardens and I so loved the landscaping. This small secluded resort fronts onto a safe, white sandy beach and the sea is crystal clear. It is so tranquil and very relaxing atmosphere.
When we checked in, the receptionist was so friendly and accommodating. I learned from her that the owners of this resort are 4 foreigners, British and English guys and are currently based in Hong Kong. I forgot to ask how often they visit Philippines. We got the Deluxe room (triple sharing) and she gave us the key to our room not too far from their bar and restaurant. They have a total of 23 rooms and all have AC, fans, satellite tv, hot and cold showers, WIFI internet connection and there was a safety box. Our room was clean and well-maintained, AC was so cold.

I was so eager to see the place so hubby and I roamed around. There were quite a few foreigners who were checked in here. Some were having a conversation in the garden. Hubby and I took turns in taking photos and we were so impressed with the view, garden and everything. Perfect! Let the photos speak for themselves.

Below is the infinity pool complete with waterfall and overlooks the sea. This is good for the kids because it's not that deep.

More photos taken at the beach. No sunset this time because the sun didn't show up and it was cloudy.

My li'l brother followed us after a while so I snapped a photo of him and hubby.

When we were done, it was time for supper so we went to dine in their restaurant. There were quite a few people dining in already. We all ordered beef chili but we chose different side dishes. The food was just so-so, and the meat was too greasy. I didn't eat it all my foods. The price is high for me. I had better foods at Deluxe Restaurant and a lot cheaper too. Below are the pics of the foods we ordered. One plate (1 order) costs Php250 and 1 small bottle of gatorade costs Php65. Too pricey and I was not satisfied. 


We got the chance to meet the manager of the resort. He is an Aussie and has been living in the Philippines for 40 years. and he can speak Tagalog! He's married to a Filipina and has 3 kids. He has a business, making sausages. Hubby ordered 1 kilo of Hungarian sausages.  He is pleasant to talk with, friendly and he even gave us 2 packs of cinnamon rolls that he bought from a shorty lady and gave hubby a free cup of coffee. By the way, their coffee costs Php60 per cup. I think that's too expensive cup of coffee. I'm cheapskate, I won't buy that. I will just drink their service water, at least it's free, lol! The best thing in our conversation is that we had the chance to talk to him about salvation. We told him we need a Savior and our sins to be forgiven in order to get to heaven. He may not got saved right away but we planted a seed in his mind. He had something to think about.
