Summer Destination: Aureo La Union

Summer is almost here and we’re on the hunt for the newest weekend getaways outside the metro.
Aureo Hotels & Resorts is a sweet escape for fun and relaxation with beautiful amenities and calm sea. Secluded from the many resorts in La Union, it is just a 4 hour drive from Manila.

The place is really HUGE with over 50 villas available for guests. Their villas are inspired by Asian architecture and are simply beautiful.

Aureo has lounge areas in their garden for a slow lazy afternoon.

They also have 2 pools available to accommodate guests wanting to relax under the summer sun floating around on a pizza, donut, or a swan. 

The floaters are available for rent to guests for 100 pesos per hour.

The Lagoon is an infinity pool with the perfect view of the serene beach in La Union. It is far from the conventional beaches from La Union and not ideal for surfing.

They set up tables and bean bags in the beach area during weekends where guests can hangout and order food and drinks from the in-house restaurant.

The room accommodation comes in with free breakfast from their restaurant. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner. They also have a bar wherein they have many option for alcoholic beverage. Their staff are really friendly and accommodating.
