Thunderbird Resorts – Poro Point
Sun, sand, and Santorini
Perched on a scenic cliff in San Fernando, La Union is Thunderbird Resorts-Poro Point. It is a six-hour drive from Manila, or a 45-minute plane ride from Manila to San Fernando (Zest Air flies on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). Overlooking the South China Sea, the Mediterranean-themed resort is inspired by the Greek island of Santorini—and with structures of whitewashed walls and blue roofs, the place does paint a picture of faraway lands.
Thunderbird Resorts-Poro Point is the only five-star hotel in the north, and boasts the requisite luxury amenities. Guest rooms are equipped with LCD televisions, home theater surround systems, and iPod docking stations and speakers. Free Wi-fi access is also available. While you’ll have enough reason to hole up in your room, the resort also has facilities for those who enjoy the outdoors.
You can choose to take a dip in the resort’s private beach or their Santorini Swimming Pool. If you’re up for some livelier recreational activities, you can visit the Cliffs Golf & Beach Club for other recreational activities like golfing, kayaking, or jet-skiing. You can even try your luck at the Fiesta Casino. The resort is also home to a string of bars and restaurants: Vegas Café, Cabana Bar, Olives Restaurant, Santorini Lounge & Bar, and The Pool Bar.
