Bamboo Inspired Staycation w/ Star Monica

Posted By on Mar 26, 2017 |

Stayed with a group, the bamboo inspired interior beside the farm and lake made this resort to embrace nature to relax.

After our food crawl in Dagupan, a needed rest is vital.  Honestly, eating got us tired but best part smiling yet tired.

To get that sleep for another tomorrow’s gastronomy escapade, we stayed at Star Monica Hotel and Resort located in Lingayen, Pangasinan.

We got a group room but remarkably, there is an airconditioned room separated for me and husband.

Even without the television, it is just ok.  We shared also a common comfort room.  For a rate of P 4,000.00 per night with 6 to 8 persons can occupy, I think this is already affordable complete with comfortable bedding and towel to use.

As I woke up early, early morning beside our window room with rice field and coming sunset, now home with mother nature.

Bamboo inspired interior of the said resort soothes the spirit around. Back in the grind doing yoga pose to reflect before going to walk and swim around the resort.

As I walked around, the surrounding is clean while their big, long swimming pool got the crystal blue ready to dip.
Aside from that, basketball court is ready for play.

When our group got to try to swim around, there is a volleyball recreation within the pool which we literally enjoyed.

Amenities like the big pail with water that would tumble down in the middle of the pool made a child-like feeling.

Ang init, now missing pool playing. #ShareableSummer #StarMonicaHotel #Pangasinan #Lingayen

Sharing also here the video compilation that would visualize the resort’s amenities.

We all hate to go before lunch time but that’s all about it.

Definitely, this resort is highly recommended for big groups, couple, family and barkada for nature staycation right at the heart of Lingayen, Pangasinan.
