A Luxurious Stay at Siargao's Nay Palad Hideaway

by - Friday, July 27, 2018



How far would you go to be treated the way you deserve?

You won't have to go great lengths. You won't need to spend a lifetime searching. You'll only have to fly to Siargao!

Nay Palad is an all-inclusive, barefoot luxury resort situated in Siargao. The name was actually derived from the two words "nanay" and "palad", which in translation literally means "mom" and "palm". The meaning behind it is that they will care for you as if you are resting on the palms of your mother. In here, you are a queen (or king). Everything is done according to your liking.

TRAVEL FROM AIRPORT TO RESORT 

Our Ride: Custom-Made Jeepney 
The resort's staff was waiting to welcome us at the arrival area of the airport when we landed. Our ride was also waiting for us there, and it's a custom-made jeepney with couch-like seats. We were also offered cold towels, cold drinks in stainless steel tumblers, and finger food that helped us get through the 40min ride to the resort.

Upon arrival, we were welcomed by the whole management - from the general manager to the chef. We were then informed that Nay Palad is literally a barefoot luxury resort, so right there and then we removed our footwear and let our toes touch the sand all the way to our villa.

There are 10 villas in the resort, but the management only allows the booking of a maximum of 5 villas at a time to ensure total exclusivity and enjoyment free from the crowd. This made us feel like we owned the whole resort!

Master Villa: Tree House

We stayed at the 3 bedroom master villa (maximum occupancy of 6 pax), each having their own bathrooms, and their beautiful views: beach, pool, garden. It is surrounded by koi ponds and has its very own private pool. There's also a fridge per room, with the drinks all free for grabs. It also has its own bonfire, movie room (complete with a comfy couch, stereo, projector), and a treehouse. The villa also had all sorts of furnitures, like the chairs and couches with the super cute pillows that I loved. There were also sun blocks, mosquito repellents, beach bags, chargers, basically anything you will probably need.

ACTIVITIES

There are a lot of activities you can do in this resort. And because it's an all-inclusive resort, you can just leave your wallets in your vaults for the whole duration of your stay, you won't be needing it! You can then go nuts and experience everything the resort has to offer!

Some of the activities Nay Palad has arranged for us (yes, they’d be arranging it for you! just tell them what you want and they’ll make it happen) are: 
  • Surfing (they can arrange this for you at Cloud 9, with a coach, transportation, snacks and drinks) 
  • Yoga sessions in front of the beach 
  • Gym 
  • Spa! (Massage, mani-pedi, romantic bath for the couples) 
  • Island Hopping (includes transpo - your very own speed boat with tour guide, island picnic, your own beach umbrella and seats that they will set up for you. Yes, they're that extra!) 
  • Snorkeling 
  • Sports: volleyball, table tennis, billiards 
  • Water sports: kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing 
  • Cooking demo with chef (they granted us access to the kitchen and watched the chef prepare our meal)


RESORT TO AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION

Just when we thought that our time as princesses was over, the resort's staff comes with us inside the pre-departure area of the airport to wait for our plane. They brought with them a cooler with drinks and more snacks, leaving no loopholes in the timeline and making sure they serve you well from the moment of your arrival up to the moment of your departure.
We had such a fun and memorable stay at this resort. We felt like royalty the whole time. We have never been pampered the way we were pampered by Nay Palad. Everything was better than we expected, thus the 5-star rating (which I wish can be higher!!! Especially since Nay Palad is a 6-star resort LOLJK corny )

You can find the rates and booking details at www.theluxenomad.com 

All I can think of while I was at the resort was how I didn’t want this vacation to end (and how I wanted to come back for my honeymoon LOL)

P.S. I will be making another blog post for the activities arranged for us by the resort, and the food that we had during our stay. Please do check them once they're out :)
