Beach Resort in San Antonio, Zambales: Pundaquit Luxury Resort

Pundaquit Luxury Resort is a mid-range inn located at Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales. It is one of the resorts that serves as a gateway to the Zambales Coves - Capones, Anawangin and Nagsasa.It is beside the famous Nora's Beach Resort and Canoe Beach Resort.

Originally, my cousins and I planned to camp at Anawangin Cove for the holy week holiday. However, with a baby and some adults in their 50's coming with us, our plans did not push through. Instead, we decided to check in a Pundaquit Luxury Resort. One of the advantages of this resort is that they have a pool- good for kids and adults unlike with other resorts in the area. (Yeah, I'm starting with the background story.)

We rented a mountain view room and 4 kubo huts since there were 17 of us. The mountain view room is actually good for 4 people but they only allow up to 3. This is worth P 2300. It has two single beds, cable TV airconditioner and toilet & bath. The beds, tv and aircon are about average. The toilet was a disappointment though. It was small and cramped. For adults who are quite large in body frame, I wouldn't be surprised if you'd be suffocated. Good thing was they have toiletries- soap, shampoo, toothcare kit and tissue. Towels are not free so bring a towel!

The kubo huts have two types. The first one has two single double decks and the other one has double decks which are double beds. (Haha! I don't know how to describe it) Point is, the nipa huts can accommodate 4 people comfortably. All the nipa huts are fan rooms which really isn't a problem since the air is cool esp. at night. Downside would be we didn't have our own toilets and the location of the huts is about 30 steps from the actual resort compound. If you're a toilet-crazy person, get a room with a CR. Although the common toilets are clean, they are not tiled.

Pundaquit Luxury Resort also offer island hopping services with the same rates of local boatmen.

Boat Rates:

Small Boat (good for 4 people)
P 1500 - Camara, Capones, Anawangin
P 1800 - Camara, Capones, Anawangin and Nagsasa

Big Boat (good for 10 or more people)
P 350/ pax - Capones and Anawangin
P 450/ pax - Capones, Anawangin and Nagsasa

Service is also good. The staff are cordial and prompt. They also have cooking services for a fee.
They have a small garden for outdoor dining and a restaurant on the roof deck for viewing.

Pundaquit Luxury Resort may not necessarily live up to its name of "luxury" but the place was clean and comfortable.
