Hidden Island Resort is one of the island getaways in Bucas Grande Island, Socorro, Surigao del Norte, Philippines that I long to visit . For one, I want to see for myself the veracity of the stories being told that it has been transformed into a world-class resort by its owner, my good friend Roger Pimentel. Though I live in the island but it was already quite some time that I visited the place since it was first constructed around 5 years ago.
Hence, on February 14, 2011, armed by my newly-acquired Nikon D 7000, I embarked on a sight seeing trip around my island home with the Hidden Island Resort as my first tourist spot destination.
Truly, after our boat maneuvered at the back of one of the secluded islets within the vicinity of Barangay Dona Helen, I was awe-struck when my eyes caught this view . . .
As I disembarked from the boat, my appetite to dive had soared upon seeing this dive board. . .
The Hidden Island Resort reception desk is simple and comely . . .
With its Patio so elegantly designed . . .
The simple yet elegant Blue Marlin Cottage had really caught my attention . . .
More so with the schools of groupers swimming on the azure waters beneath . . .
I saw for myself that guests in the Dolphin Cottage are treated like kings and queens as evidenced by this exquisite bedroom . . .
Standing at the resort’s catwalk, I cannot help but be inspired by the resort’s signage . . .
The sight of the resort’s flagship billeting place, the Lobster Cottage, is simply amazing . . .
But, nothing beats the exhilarating view of the island scenery as seen from the Lobster Cottage veranda . . .
Savoring the beauty of floating dish garden-like islets dotted on azure seas as viewed from Hidden Island Resort’s Lobster Cottage veranda would surely excite the urban guests and make them forget the hustles and bustles of city life . . .
Even I, an islander myself, so dearly admire the view of the Hidden Island Resort from atop the limestone view deck . . .
Truly, as my boat had sped away towards another tourist spot, the spot had left an imprint in my mind in that . . .
judging from its facilities and amenities, Hidden Island Resort would surely dig deeper into the company of world-class vacation resorts capable of offering tourists a wholesome island vacations.
