Amihan Villa, Puerto Galera

“I will give your heart a place to rest
when everything you had has turned and left.”
- The Last Lost Continent


Needed a transient home for your restless mind and weary heart to rest? Well, Amihan Villa, about three to four hours away from Manila, may be just the perfect place to unwind and forget life's problems. Set on a romantic hilltop setting in Aninuan, Puerto Galera, Amihan is a two-storey villa, assured to provide guests with the much needed relaxation and simple recreation.

Very tropical vibe

The communal living area has a modern-rustic feel, with its wooden ceiling and furniture, and some art works. There are several books and magazines for those who want to lounge around the area.

The villa consists of five modern, spacious bedrooms equipped with sliding glass door, flatscreen TV, internet connection, air conditioning, and a bathroom creatively designed with a free-standing bathtub and separate shower enclosure. Each room has its own balcony where guests could wine and dine or simply enjoy the panoramic views of nature.





The surrounding scenery, which includes the deep-blue West Philippine Sea and verdant Mt. Malasimbo, is breathtaking and soothing to the eyes. Don't you wish you could take it all home to Manila?



Within the grounds of the villa is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi.

When the ocean becomes too enticing, guests could bask on the sand of Aninuan Beach, a good leisurely 10-minute downhill walk from the villa. The neighboring infamous White Beach, which is just a short walking distance, is also accessible from the shores of Aninuan.

Goodbye stress!


But all good things must come to an end 

Amihan Villa may be small but it is truly stunning and intimate. The staff, particularly Ms. Gemma, is warm and helpful, ensuring guests’ hassle-free respite or vacation. Staying in this gem of a place is like being gently blown by Amihan or cool northeast wind – refreshing and invigorating. I’m certain, you heart will leave happy again.
