It wasn’t a weekend and yet we’ve spent a whole day of fun and exciting experience at Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park in Kawit, Cavite – which is just a 15-20 minutes ride on an easy traffic day from Coastal Road Parañaque via CAVITEX plaza.
Toll fee for Class 1 vehicles entering Coastal Road and CAVITEX are P24 and P64, respectively, one-way.
Representing Juan Manila Express and Biyahero Travel Guide, we joined a group of bloggers who assembled from Makati and shuttled all the way to Cavite early Monday morning. The invitation was part of Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park’s celebration of its 20th year in the local travel and hospitality industry.
Started in 1998, Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park has been recognized for the variety of its attractions, there is something to do for every part of the family – this quick getaway destination is also pet-friendly, welcoming four-legged ones continuously since day one.
And twenty years after, the destination remains a preferred choice. “We strive to keep interesting and exciting for our guests by offering fresh all the time. We also make sure that our facilities are up-to-date and continue to cater to the changing needs and wants of our market,” said Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park Managing Director, Gilbert C. Remulla (or GCR, as he is fondly called).
As soon as we reached Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park, we were welcomed by our PR contact and introduced to its Operations Manager, Malu Samaco, who is a very nice and wonderful person. Miss Malu and her team made sure that we had the best time of our day trip while we were at the resort.
If you’re a long-time patron and visitor of Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park you will remember that they have a wildlife sanctuary within the 36-hectare property owned by the Remullas.
At present, this wildlife sanctuary has been relocated to a new site and is now a smaller version of the old zoo. Thus, the Aviary was born.
Aviary is a comfortable 20-minute walk through the 3,500-square meter animal zone. It will expose you to different birds such as the Brahminy Kite, ostrich, and peacock. There are also turtles, iguanas, Phil Sailfin lizards, a 200lb Burmese phyton, rabbits, and koi fishes. Entrance to the Aviary is P50 per person.
The Aviary is part of the new features from the updated attractions and lined up promos for Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park 20th anniversary.
“We are most proud of our ability to be consistent in delivering excellent service. We make an effort to fulfill our mission to satisfy our guests and partners, and go an extra mile to help them,” GCR shared.
Aside from the Aviary, new attractions added are the go-karts, King Crawler, horse-back riding, and the Mermaid Swim Experience.
Fitness and Entertainment
Old time favorite amenities like the fitness center Fit Club will be introducing a transformation challenge to be dubbed as Fit Club Fitness Journey. It aims to reward those with the biggest weight loss.
The Bayside Deck is the latest addition to Island Cove’s inventory of function areas. Overlooking Manila Bay, this 170-seater is perfect for events on sweltering days.
For food lovers, the Fishing Village expanded its menu to include Kamayan Set Meals good for 6 to 8 persons with price ranging from P2,800 to P3,300.
And for the hotel guests, Sangley Point’s Western cuisine menu has been spiced up with new dishes too. Schedule a food trip and try the Starters Platter, Buffalo Chicken Burger, Linguine al Vongole, Rigatoni al Salmone, and the Madras Style Vegetable Curry.
