Our Weekend Getaway at the Lighthouse Marina Resort

Glittering sun, stretches of emerald blue-green sea, powdery silvery sands and magnificent sunsets…the combination is indeed inspiring.

Designed and created by Palafox Associates, The Lighthouse Marina Resort is devoid of grandeur and massive multi-floor layered structure of a typical five star hotel. It simply is impressively elegant on its own. Strategically located along the marvelous scenic bay area of the Subic cove in the province of Zambales. Its proximity and leisurely accessibility from the hustle and bustle of the Metro is just an hour and a half drive from the North Luzon Expressway access point in Balintawak. 

Conveniently situated along the beach front at the end-stretch of Waterfront Road directly facing the imposing cove with the grand panoramic view of the forested mountains of Morong, Bataan to the left and the Zambales mountain to the right.

The Lighthouse is an excellent place to laze, relax, unwind, enjoy, contemplate and savor the leisurely life. It was conceived to exclusively cater to the discriminating and whose yen for life is only the best. The Lighthouse is committed to offer only what is expected: exclusivity of the place, friendly and personal service.

It has 34 rooms (7 suites and 27 deluxe), function rooms that fit according to your needs, karaoke bar and resto-grill, al fresco dining, adult and kiddie pool Jacuzzi, broadband access in all rooms, Wi-Fi in public areas and the hotel had also been designed with PWD’s in mind, it had a handicap ramp and handicap toilet.  
We stayed in one of their aqua verdana suites where there was 42” colored LCD cable TV, as well as fully equipped mini refrigerator and mini bar. Upon opening the aqua terraces and verandas, the stunning bay view will be greeting you.  Kyle loved the ultra-comfort mattresses and lush pillows and fabrics our bed had. My Mom on the other hand, liked the fact that coffee and tea making facilities are in every suite rooms like the one we had. But I loved it best for its own Jacuzzi tubs (where I can take a bath while watching my favorite TV program) and private bath plus a rainforest shower head in a separated glass enclosed shower.

Chocolate lovers will be glad to know that there’s a chocolate night cap drink served, that’s aside from the welcome drink and fresh fruits.
