Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park: Unearthing this perfect family getaway in Cavite

Definitely not an ordinary resort to begin with. Unlike any other tourist attractions, Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park is a league on its own that offers an off beaten path toward a happier and momentous celebration of life and living. It envisions to provide everyone a more unforgettable getaway that is completed with a unique experience in embracing the beauty and wonders of nature. Established with a vision to provide one and all a perfect place to go away with the hustle and bustle of the metro, Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park boasts of its high-class amenities and facilities that allow everyone-of all ages from all walks of life-to have a taste of sweet vacation and enjoy life to the fullest.

It's been more than a decade since I first saw the beauty of Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park. I was very young then-totally unaware and innocent on what the island could truly offer. In fact, I remember not being able to roam around that much because we were there on a very limited time. I could vividly recall how my family and I enjoyed Oceania Swim and Splash Park and the giant chess display where I even had a photo taken as remembrance.  But, what made our trip more extraordinary was the refreshing offerings made in a more personalized way by the Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park staff.

Island Cove was indeed the ideal place to bunk out because the moment we arrived, we felt home and couldn't ask for more. Nestling along Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite, Island Cove give both locals and tourists something new and better. Though the hotel resort isn't considered a "rookie" in the industry, it keeps up with the challenge through its incomparable features and quality services. Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park has accommodations that serve guests and clients of every need and budget. In fact, they have recently finished major room renovation of their accommodation facilities. 

Each rooms now have USB charging ports, wi-fi internet connectivity, flat screen TVs, and modern bathrooms. I am also pleased that they have remote control dockers. The suites are truly cozy and inviting. Moreover, connecting and handicap rooms are available. And get this, they have two units on Superior De Luxe for PWDs (Persons with disability). This is really good news for me because my mom has orthopedic disability. I'm pretty sure the other families would also appreciate that their PWD loved ones are given importance in this hotel/resort. Of course, that is aside from the discount that PWDs receive when they make the booking. 

At Island Cove, there's always something for every member of the family to enjoy. Dog lovers will also be happy to note that the resort allows guests to bring in their pets. Kids will surely have a blast as they spend hours at the Oceania Swim and Splash Park. The 3,000 square meter kid-friendly splash park were installed with water safe rubber flooring  to minimize the possibility of accidents. They also have four giant slides and inflatables. These spots are perfect for guests to bask under the tropical sun. Certified lifeguards are also on standby as well as first aid and basic life support by the Philippine National Red Cross. An outdoor lap pool, a lounge pool, and a jacuzzi can likewise be enjoyed by the guests.

For the more active kids, Island Cove also has what they call as King Crawler. Designed by a Dutch company, it's a vertical urban play structure which combines both play and climbing opportunities. The brightly colored platforms are floating between muted posts and wire mesh. They're perfect for energetic kids to while away their time.

Island Cove also boasts of their Wildlife Sanctuary which is home to different species such as reptiles, mammals and birds. Guests can feed crocodiles, monkeys, tigers and ostriches. If you're adventurous enough, you can have photos taken with a 15-foot python. It also has an adventure zone where guests can do paintball, air soft games and they can also try their Island Cove Maze Challenge too. Other outdoor facilities include basketball and tennis courts, 1.4 kilometer jogging path, children's playground, bicycle rentals and a giant chess.

For those who hate the outdoors, there's an indoor billiard and table tennis, a game room where guests can play Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox consoles. Of course, when families and friends would gather, singing in KTV will always be part of it. Island Cove has their Bayside KTV which can accommodate seat groups from 2 to 30 pax. It has nine private function rooms for your enjoyment with the latest songs in Chinese, Korean, English, Japanese and Filipino.

What is a vacation without rejuvenation? Island Cove is equipped with its first class spa facilities and top-notch services, ensures that each resort guest is treated to detoxyfying treatments and therapies. Island Spa has well-trained masseuses and therapists. 

Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park's Executive Assistant Manager, Ms. Malu Samaco explains that they always welcome everyone here, "We want to put in personal touches to our services, so our guests would feel welcome and home." Apparently, we just felt that. For this year, Samaco says they want to continuously improve. "We always look for something new, something fresh. We think outside the box, but we don't usually follow the flow. We also make sure we head into that direction that we want," she shares on how Island Cove is able to outplay its rivals.

For those eyeing a relaxing spot, Island Cove is truly the place to be. With the resort's offering of ecological wonder, a lost soul may find reprieve under the trees situated within the premises.

With 21 bamboo huts atop the water with the sight of the spectacular view of Makati and Manila skylines. It provides guests an ultimate and unique dining experience.  I'll have a separate blog post on the above mentioned restaurants on my food blog if you're interested to know what can I say about their food at the resort.

What's more? Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park features a picturesque setting, ideal for those who are planning to tie the knot or for those who are looking for a pre-nuptial photo shoot destination.
