Our Secret Getaway Place: Berna Beach!

Iiiiii'm back!!! I finally have a stable internet connection at home. Woots! Got Globe's 3mbps broadband plan and so far so good. I hope it stays this way forever. Steady ka lang Globe ayoko na mastress. Haha. Anywaaay, I'm feeling excited to blog again, so I'm posting the rest of my backlogs until there is no more. Starting my cleanup with this long overdue post. I, together with the Berna crew, wanted to keep this amazing place, our home away from home a secret. But, bilang love ko kayo lahat we decided to let the cat out of the bag. Sharing our secret getaway place now na. Hep, hep!!! Outfit post muna. Quickie lang:)

Very simple lang db? Haha. I miss wearing floral so I took out this thrifted top (that has been sitting in my closet for 2 years) for a spin! And sorry naman sa very dirty Bensimon sneakers. Proof that I use it ALL the time. Such a winner!:)


And now... say hello to our little paradise, BERNABEACH Resort!

It's just a 2-3 hour drive from Manila via Tagaytay or Cavite. We discovered this place by accident during a random Tagaytay trip August of last year. Our original plan was to stay and tambay in Tagaytay then drive to Laiya the next day. Unfortunately, all hotels and hostels in Tagaytay were fully booked. We were so close to giving up when Nico suggested we drive to Nasugbu and check out this resort he went to a year ago. Having no place to spend the night in, gumora na kami coz we had no choice na din. It turned out better than we expected! Plus, kami lang ata tao that day so solo namin the place. Woots. I love how they have a HUGE pool and a nice beach. That time we were on a tight budget so we opted to stay in their cottage. It costs P1,500 for 24 hours. Not baaaad! Entrance fee is P100 (it's now P200) per person. No entrance na if you avail their aircon rooms. 6 people could fit in the cottage! Wag lang maarte. If maarte, 4 lang. Lels.

Here are photos of all our Bernabeach getaways starting with the most recent one, my sister's birthday!;)


 our resident chef, Igi Boy! We brought an electric stove so we could cook meals and pulutan hehe.

It was my sister's first time in Berna and they brought Miles' brothers, so we chose to stay in their Dorm Room. They didn't have cottages available na din. It was priced at P4,000 per night with 2 double deck beds, aircon and ensuite bathroom with hot & cold shower. Nice! The rest of the gang stayed in the nipa huts at P1,500 per night.

 Haha huli ka Kikoy boy!

They have 3 big cottages and 2 small ones. Big cottages have double deck beds, fan and veranda. Common bathroom is okay. Pwede na. ;)

Open cottages are for rent too. Perfect for day trips.

Dorm rooms and other rooms are located at the ground floor

Dorm room is P4k per night (entrance fee waived and they provide clean towels)

Bathroom:)

Second floor

Twin Room - P2,500 

 Family Room (big) - P7,000

 2 bathrooms, dining table and ref

And here's the biggest room, Ocean View! Good for 12 people. Perfect for parties!:)
 
 Niiiice

 view from the side window... hi friends!

We arrived 8pm of February 1 and checked out 12pm the next day. If you're staying in the cottage, you can checkout the same time you came in. :)

Left Bernabeach early to be able to go to Tagaytay and Nuvali bilang request ni sisterette. The rest of the gang went straight home coz they wanted to avoid the traffic.

 Meryenda at Bag of Beans!

 Shepherd's Pie for P125. Yum. 

Cinammon bread with cream cheese dip for P110

Hot chocolate and frozen chocolate. Forgot the prices but I think they're P110-P125 a mug/glass 


 with the Birthday girl

Last stop was Nuvali where we ate dinner and visited different outlet stores. Was able to buy a black bandeau swimsuit from Aldo for P400! Quite a steal! Also bought shirts and lingerie from Bench. Will post photo soon:)

That's it pancit! Nice noh?! It's the perfect place to chill lang with friends and family. It's not hard to locate, you could even use Waze or Google Maps for navigation. I'm thinking of celebrating my birthday here. What do you think? Ocean view room noh? Haha. Tara?:)
