Experience “Santorini of Asia” in La Union Soon!

The famous Santorini in Greece is one of my dream destinations because of its breath-taking beauty and picturesque perfection. The view of the sky kissing the sea from the exceptional mainland parallel to the horizon will never fail to captivate my heart. I am deeply honored and grateful to have witnessed this scenery last June 17. Dreams do come true indeed!

No, I didn’t have to fly to Greece to have this life-goal of mine checked from my bucket list. I was invited at a groundbreaking ceremony in San Fernando, La Union. Thunderbird Resort and Casinos Poro Point promises to be the prime tourist spot in the North.

Santorini of Asia”, the future of Thunderbird Poro Point, pushes the hospitality standards to the highest possible level by recently adding 47 Mediterranean-inspired villas to accommodate the growing number of resort guests. By September this year, there will be a total 200 luxurious holiday homes that will give every visitor the complete Santorini experience.  

The event was joined by important personalities that will make this vision tangible - Engr.Renie Soriano;Mr. Angel Sueiro (COO of Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos); PPMC Chairman Yves Q. Nisce; Ms. Allee Lourdes Sun (President and Chairman of Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos); La Union Vice Governor Augusto Aureo Nisce, PPMC President Florante Gerdan, DOT RO1 Director Martin L. Valera; Mr. Mario Vincent Lanuza (General Manager of Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos); Architect Alvin Seneca; Interior Designer Alvin Ayong; Engr. Joseph Batuac; and Engr. Eric Senica.

To add, there are a throng of restaurants for a unique gastronomical adventure such as the newly opened Deli Pianosa Café and the Asian-Mediterranean-themed Ouzo Restaurant in the resort's casino.

The 10-year old Thunderbird Resort and Casinos will boast world class facilities and recreation amenities like semi-Olympic pool, driving range, tennis and basketball courts, and exquisite gardens, making it a full-fledged 5-star resort hotel. The resort, which is characterized by Greece-inspired white and blue domes, is impeccably situated on the Poro Point Peninsula, the panoramic West Philippine Sea serves as the picture-perfect background.

Santorini of Asia” will be pronounced in a series of events in the next few months. Watch out for my blog post about my wonderfully over-the-top hotel experience.
