Visiting Southern Luzon: Staycation in Misibis bay & Albay Bicol City Tours

Before reading my post, I invite you take a  view on our Albay Trip avp 🙂

Hope you guys enjoyed watching our Bicol fambam MTV.

We arrived in Legazpi Airport last August 21, 2015 to have a staycation in Misibis bay since it is a long weekend holiday. The weather is not so so good but Thanks to God we  landed safely.

Misibis bay is 5-hectare island resort may be reached via a 50-minute flight from Manila to Legazpi, then a scenic travel by land (50 minutes), by a private helicopter (15 minutes), or by a fast watercraft (30 minutes). They claimed it as a luxury island playground in the Philippines. Well, indeed for me it really is. It might be not so first-hand since resort was built by 2009. Still, it is lavish and great place to have your vacation. It is private tropical hideaway built on a pristine stretch of beach along the southern tip of Cagraray island in Bacacay, Albay. Misibis is member of luxurious hotels worldwide.

Day in Misibis

Upon arrival we were greeted by the staff, offered welcome drinks and cold towels to freshen up. At first, I have a feeling that there will be dull moments on the resort since the weather is not so friendly at the moment. I also expected to see a a little of their welcome dance from their staffs since most of the write ups about  Misibis Bay mentioned it. sadly, we didn’t see it but it’s okay  because the way they accommodate us from the airport is truly hospitable and remarkable.

 

There’s a complimentary hand-made souvenir bag upon check in our room. Isn’t it amazing? Yeah I sooo like it! 🙂

 

We’ve decided to get out and roam around in the resort, My first impression???
Yes. It is First Class. The luxurious villas, The lagoon and infinity pool it was so inviting. Like other 4-5 star hotels the staff were hands on and very  on what we need.

We love to take a picture on each resort’s corner.

We also played on the giant chess ground.

 

Unfortunately we didn’t try some activities in the resort which are segway, boat riding and Hobie cat sailing due to weather conditions so we  just opt to relish their pools and beach area.

Dining in the hotel was a bit expensive but somehow worth it (depends on your taste buds)

 

We also barge in the Eco park since its nearby the area . We take a tour in AmpiTheatre (Featured in Amzing race Asia)

Chapel in Cagraray Island (located inside the eco park) is a wonderful venue. It overlooks the bay and has Mt. Mayon as its backdrop if the weather is soooo good.

Lezaspi Day Tour 

Of course, we wouldn’t want to miss the City tour so before our flight we visited some of Albay’s tourist spot

As much as we want to take a close up look with the world-renowned Mayon Volcano but she couldn’t allow us. (sabi nila pag unang punta mo hindi daw talaga mag papakita ang bulkan sayo) I think this is true since we wasn’t able to take a whole picture of it.

We also visited Daraga Church

We also go over to see the famous Cagsawa ruins. This park is being managed by the municipal government of Daraga. It is actually the most visited tourist spot in the town. Visitors can enjoy the classic postcard view of Mayon Volcano with the Cagsawa belfry in front. you can also try the different trick shot for this iconic sightseer field.
