Misibis Bay!

The main reason for my trip to Legaspi is I did an ocular visit to the MISIBIS BAY resort.  I was tasked to design the uniforms of the staff, so they flew me in so that I may get a feel of the place! When I drove up, I was filled with anticipation because I have seen the drawings of the resort and from the drawings alone, I could feel that this was something that appealed to my aesthetic.

The resort is located along the Misibis Bay on a sprawling island that has really majestic views!  When I visited the place, it was 80% complete.  Even at that point, I could already feel that this is going to be a must- see destination in the Philippines!  The resort will be managed by Rain Tree group, the same group that has been receiving massive raves from other resorts like Discovery Shores in Boracay, Camp John Hay in Baguio, and the Discovery in Tagaytay.

The Resort opens on May 1 and they have a promo already listed in their website at www.misibisbay.com  For all of you adventure buffs, this is the place to go!  I encourage you to come and be the first to visit this beautiful property!  I guarantee that you won’t regret it!

Since the main entrance was still in its finishing stages we entered to the  side.  This was the kids pool are.

I was really inspired when I visited the rooms as I am in the works to do my dream beach home and this was the kind of look that I was aiming at!  Don't you just love the large glass sliding doors and mirrors?

This is how the room looks like! I am loving the clean lines and soothing colors! Mind you, this is not yet done and they still have to add some finishing touches.

 The villas are linked by a large pool lagoon.  I love the fact that each room leads to a swimming area just a few steps away.  The pool was so inviting!

 You can rent out their chopper if you want and have a quick zip around the area.  This is a super cool way of visiting the Mayon volcano, you can really see the crater up close.

    Hi Rajo, I got the chance to see your creation, the uniform you designed for Misibis Bay staff. Here’s my post about it with photos:

    And I stayed at the beachfront villa (your photo #12)! You’re right waking up to the sight of the beach is priceless!!!
