Casa Consuelo in Blue Lagoon, Pagudpud Is a Sanctuary Overlooking the Twin Island
Blue Lagoon is known to be a top beach destination in the North and what better way to experience a full island life than getting a perfect sanctuary overlooking the unique twin island of Dos Hermanos.
Snorkel your way to the marine life and hike towards the island during low tide to see the beauty beneath the West Philippine Sea at Casa Consuelo.
Situated in Blue Lagoon, Sitio Baniaran in Barangay Balaoi, Casa Consuelo offers a home close to the heart of the marine life.
Get to experience island accommodation when you book a Casa, which they offer in two types—the Casita and the Triplex Casa. Casitas can accommodate five to six people.
For Triplex Casa, they have Room Uno (Php 3,400/night), which has a front porch, a queen sized bed, and a complimentary breakfast. Room Dos (P4,800/night), on the other hand, is good for four with one semi-double sized bed and two single beds.
Triplex Casa Php 3,200/night good for 2 pax and Php 4,800/night good for 4 pax
The last room from the Triplex Casa is Room Tres (Php 4,800/night), which is also good for four but has two double sized beds. Each room comes with a private bathroom with a hot and cold shower, a wifi connection, TV, toiletries, and complimentary breakfasts.
Additional rate per person starts at Php 600 inclusive of foam mattress, linens, towels, and breakfast. Kids under 12 years old staying with their parents or guardians and using existing bedding is free of charge, but breakfast is chargeable at Php 170 minimum.
Casa Consuelo also houses La Cocina de Consuelo, a Filipino restaurant serving fresh seafood, and Ilocano home-cooked meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They also have an infinity type swimming pool free for guests to use.
Non-guests may also swim in their pool at Php 250 for adults and Php 200 for children. Beach hut rentals for walk-ins are at Php 500, inclusive of shower and toilet use.
Give snorkeling a try as Casa Consuelo is just a few steps away from the island reef. Mask rentals are available in the area for Php 350/hour. They also have a beach boutique so you don’t have to worry about swimwears and souvenirs.
And if you get tired of all the water activities the resort has to offer, opt to relax and get a full body massage for Php 500/hour. For those interested in Ilocos tours, they also offer tour packages. Just ask them for possible itineraries.
An all in one beach life, away from the toxicity of the city, Casa Consuelo will let you experience the beauty of marine life throughout your stay.
