Islas de Gigantes, a.k.a. The Islands of Giants, is a popular getaway in Iloilo because of its beautiful seascape. It features pristine white-sand beaches, amazing karst rock formations, and breathtaking underwater sights. But as with most bucket-list destinations in the country, getting there isn't easy. It takes a total of five to six hours to travel by bus or van from Iloilo City to the municipality of Carles, and then by boat to reach Gigantes Norte. And the opening of a new luxurious resort—Solina Beach and Nature Resort—just at the jump-off point to your island adventure is a huge bonus.
Solina Beach and Nature Resort is the first to provide glamping accommodations in Northern Iloilo. Their Kamalig Cabins, which are actually rows of spacious tents, have everything you need for a complete rest before or after your tiring but fulfilling island-hopping activity. Each cabin has its own veranda, queen-sized or single beds, and a private toilet and bath. Rates, inclusive of breakfast, start at P3,600 (for two).
The beach-front resort also has stylish villas complete with air-conditioning and flat-screen TVs, starting at P6,000 (for three). Amenities include a large swimming pool with a hot tub, a kiddie pool, an in-house restaurant called "Angga," and a bar with a panoramic view deck.
Solina Beach and Nature Resort is along Balasan-Carles Provincial Road, Guinticgan, Carles, Iloilo. For more information, send a message to 0917-110-8344, 0920-949-0557, or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow Solina Beach and Nature Resort on Facebook.
