As travel slowly makes its way back, many travelers are choosing to look for destinations that are closer to home, especially those that have expansive outdoor spaces and allow activities that are conducive to social distancing.

Set to be Bataan’s first luxury mountain resort, Rancho Bernardo Luxury Villas and Resort sits on a 40-hectare property that boasts an expanding number of amenities including private villas with outdoor jacuzzis, curated gardens and koi ponds, and a palace-like events space. Nestled within the lush mountains and infinite landscape of Bagac, Rancho Bernardo is a beautiful blend of nature’s charm and modern luxury.

There’s nothing quite like waking up to fresh mountain air and a glimpse of the beautiful scenery outside your window. A stay at Rancho Bernardo is a welcoming escape from months of quarantined life. Villas start from 79 square meters and are intricately designed with handcrafted floor-to-ceiling woodworks. The panoramic windows overlook the mountains and green fields which can also be enjoyed at each villa’s private balcony and patio. The plush king-sized beds offer comfort in every way, while the marble bathrooms adorned with 24-karat mosaic tiles, deep soaking tubs, glass-enclosed showers, and Molton Brown bath amenities undeniably speak luxury. Technology adds a touch of play to the guest experience as room controls are enabled by Google’s voice command, Alexa.

Aside from its luxurious stays, Rancho Bernardo makes it easy to explore and savor the great outdoors. Jogging and trekking paths are all over the resort’s vicinity as well as meditation areas. The resort also offers a complimentary shuttle service to nearby tourist spots and private beaches where one can bask under the sun or enjoy the simple pleasure of soaking up the beautiful scenery.

In the coming months, the resort will continue to increase its accommodation capacity with additional villas and rooms complemented with state-of-the-art facilities including an overlooking, glass-enclosed chapel, a basketball/tennis court, a wellness spa and a new wing featuring villas designed by renowned architect, Cathy Saldana of PDP Architects.
