Karin and Tommy’s Adventure 

Fifty years old Karin Thorup and 52 years old Tommy Christensen visited Coco Beach Island Resort for the first time and stayed two weeks at Hilltop Cottage with an overlooking view of the sea from their balcony. According to them they were outside the church when a recruiter came up and showed them different places in Asia where they could spend summer vacation. They have chosen Philippines among other destinations and searched over the internet for a possible place in the Philippines and found Coco Beach.

 

Prior to their arrival Karin and Tommy has made an itinerary on what to do once they get to Coco Beach. Their first activity was the tour around the resort with Service Mama Jessica to get familiarized with the Coco Beach’s facilities.

On their second day, the couple spent whole day on a Beach Hopping Tour and Fishing Trip. They enjoyed swimming and lazing at the beach under the sun. They also caught some fishes with the help of the boatmen which they had for lunch aside from the hearty food that our cooks prepared for them.

The next day they went on a Biking trip with guide Edwin. The biking gave them a nice feeling of the wind and the sun touches their faces on their way to the famous Tamaraw Falls.

For more adventure the couple went on a Trekking trip to Mount Baclayan with Edwin where the couple stayed for a night. The next day they headed to Bulabod Beach for a relaxing dip in the sea.

Not only that the couple have also rented the glass bottom boat ride to explore the beauty and colorful marine life with out getting wet.
Karin and Tommy shared that they truly enjoyed their stay and would love to come back with the whole family.

New Moon Festival - April 21  

The New Moon have transformed into a Festival with tricks up its sleeves.

Move and groove to the beats of Indio I, Green Leafy and Iraya Band.

Indio i is a band that was formed in 1994, to bring reggae music to a different dimension of popularity to those distinctive Filipino ears. They launched their first album, self-titled Indio I, in 1997 under Star Records. Upon penetrating the local music scene, the band was given recognition by award-giving bodies and networks. At the 1997 NUROCK Awards, Indio i garnered 8 nominations, and at the 1998 Katha Awards, the band brought home the Best Reggae Song Trophy for “Di Mo Lang Alam”. This song along with “S on My Chest”, “Earth to Man” and "Diwata" can still be heard over the radio and at beach bars up to this very day and still continues to be crowd favorites on live gigs. In 2005, Indio I came up with a single, Sister Sinister, as part of the compilation album Doobie NIghts which again proved to be another favorite.

Today, Indio I boasts of it's impressive roster of accomplished musicians from Mike Bewer on lead guitars/backup vocals., Byl Cuenca on rhythm guitar/backup vocals, Alvin Arevalo on bass guitar,Gerald locsin on drums to Paw Bondoc on percussions plus the occasional presence of another original member, guitarist Martin Rey Aviles to accompany it's almost forever main man, Vic Facultad on vocals. Having had numerous changes in line-up since 1998, it continues to hope to bring rock reggae music at it's best the Indio i way!

Aside from the beats of these bands, the Silab Fire Dancers will scorch the night with their fiery performance and free lessons at that.

Then, there's the Needle Juice Tattoo Booth by world-class Onat Buenaventura and Chico Sarayba who can make permanent and temporary tattoos. Let's not forget your hair as we're bringing in Bob Apolinar who makes great dreads (dread locks) and fire dance, too! But not at the same time...that would be crazy.

There's also a bazaar for with souvenirs, clothes and more. Plus, a telescope for the kids to observe the moon and stars!

Just Php 1,050 per person for a Clambake Dinner and New Moon Festival or Php 250 per person with two local drinks for the New Moon Festival only.
