Thunderbird Resort (San Fernando, La Union, PH)

Be an explorer. The universe is filled with wonder and magical things.
— Flavia

Greece is definitely an ideal place to be lost if I were to venture into that side of the world. But that seems to be a far-fetched reality for now. Good thing, my mom’s province offers a piece of the Greek vibe in La Union.

Radically situated in a prosaic cliff of Poro Point Freeport Zone and overlooking the West Philippine Sea, Thunderbird Resort is more than a lavish relaxation facility.  The Mediterranean-inspired architecture evident from its facade to its interior, the hotel services and amenities are definitely at same level with international standards. This 65-hectare property also offers a stylish and ambient atmosphere of an international casino, a golf course and the tranquillity of an exquisite seaside.


Momentous events like a quixotic wedding to a company team building or maybe just a family outing, this resort would be more than perfect. Indeed, this place is an ideal venue for an invigorating and exciting break away.

So why do I consider Thunderbird a staycation delight? Because of their large rooms with very comfortable beds, spacious bathroom, a veranda with an awesome view, a restaurant that offers delectable food and my favourite? Very scenic sunset!

***Olives Restaurant is the only restaurant in the main resort. It is strategically located with a view of the sea, the verdant grassy landscape of the hotel (and the sunset). The ambiance of which is really relaxing. They offer a wide variety of food from Mediterranean cuisine to Ilocano dishes.
