We were driving around Subic Bay Freeport one lazy Sunday afternoon when we saw a sign pointing to Nabasan Beach. Curious what the beach looks like, we let the road that cuts across the Ilanin Forest lead us there. After a short nature trip of thick foliage and some monkeys on the side of the road and on the trees,
we saw a structure. Like new and unused crisp clean linen, we breathed deeply with appreciation. Ahh! This place is new!
Still to open tentatively on January 17, 2011 is Kamana Sanctuary Resort andSpa. It has apartment style rooms and Casitas on concrete stilts on the beach. We rushed to the Casitas to see what scene will surprise
us since they are placed on that spot. Fronting the casitas is the bay with the tranquility of the mountain beyond. A large rock that stood proudly above the waters near the casitas made me wonder how long a shadow will it cast when the sun sets. A resort would not be complete without a swimming pool. The infinity pool is placed strategically to ensure you enjoy without obstructions the scenery of Subic Bay. We have not seen the spa since this place seems to be still in the works. Yet I think this is quite an experience to look
forward to on summer, don’t you think?
