Negros Getaway

"Nestled 154 kilometers south of Bacolod City lies one of Negros Island’s best-kept secrets. Punta Bulata White Beach Resort and Spa is a tropical hidden paradise that truly reflects the laid back lifestyle of the opulent sugar barons of Negros Island. Enjoy one whole kilometer stretch of white sand beach in privacy and exclusivity as you spend quality time with your friends and family.

From native Filipino nipa-hut cottages to luxurious spa rooms, guests at Punta Bulata Resort are able to choose from a wide variety of accommodations that are all just a few steps away from the beach. Step into Capiz-shell doors and garden bathrooms, take in the fresh ocean breeze, and wake to the call of orioles at The Ayu Spa at Punta Bulata, where twelve unique spa guest rooms await the weary traveler in search of a comforting temple of relaxation.

Punta Bulata Resort is known to have one of the finest and whitest beaches in Negros Island, comparable to those of the popular island destinations of Boracay, Bohol, Cebu, and Palawan, and its waters are teeming with marine and coral life. A mere 10-minute boat ride from Punta Bulata Resort, Danjugan Island Marine and Wildlife Reserve is a small island surrounded by coral reefs as diverse as the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. Aside from having some of the best diving sites in the Philippines, day trips to Danjugan Island also allow you to enjoy several other outdoor adventures and activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, trekking, and bird-watching."

I think this will be on my list after watching this on a travel show. The bonus is I can travel to Bacolod City for it's culinary attraction, up north to Talisay City & Silay City for their heritage mansions and old ancestral homes.

'You won't have the North Node in your sign for that much longer so now is the time to make the most of it. And what, you may ask, are you supposed to "do" with a North Node? OK, well this little astro critter is the one who has been pushing you oh-so forcefully outside of your comfort zone for the past few years. If you've taken a blind leap of faith and you're already starting to feel better for it, then you can thank the North Node. And if you haven't? Then as Tony Robbins would say "You must". What are you really capable of?'
