Experience the Santorini of the North : Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point La Union

“Nestled on a cliff overlooking the West Philippine Sea, Thunderbird Resort Poro Point is as captivating as its magnificent milieu. In this 65-hectare Mediterranean-inspired dream destination in North Luzon, white-washed buildings with cobalt blue domes and accents blend with the azure waters and skies. A beautiful scenery that takes you to Greece’s famous resort-town, but without having to leave local shores.”

A family friendly hotel where you can celebrate special occasions and enjoy your stay-cation! This is where we spent our weekend for Mother’s day celebration.

The Lobby

  1. Serene environment –Upon arriving at the lobby, you will see the Grecian-themed hotel painted in white with blue dome that is very similar to Santorini and famous beach destination in Greece. Physically, the hotel replicates the serenity of Grecian design and architecture but the hotel does not take away the signature beautiful Filipino smile and the feel of warm hospitality of their staff.

2. Fascinating Facilities

Game Station/Waiting Area.  The check in time is 2:00pm but we arrived early. So, we make ourselves busy by taking pictures, enjoying the entertainment zone (here you can watch movies, play table tennis, scrabble, hoola or play with the kids in the kids zone).

3. Picturesque venue –  You can’t stop from taking photos on each scenic area of the hotel. Every spot starting from the lobby all the way to the beach is good as a subject of a photo.
