Last weekend, I was invited by Ayala Land to visit and experience their newly opened “Veda Spa” and “Nature Camp” both located within the Philippines Premier Seaside Leisure Community called Anvaya Cove Beach & Nature Club.
Set against the backdrop of the Silangin and Bataan mountain ranges amidst the calm waters of Subic Bay is the Anvaya Cove Beach and Nature Club. It boasts a massive 320 hectare property where the slopes of the mountains roll gently reaching out to the sea. The neighboring hills are filled with narra and mango trees and water is abundant from natural flowing streams. The resort’s highest point is over 130 meters and looks out over a 3.5 kilometer stretch of the coastline which contains two private coves.
Anvaya cove is a seaside leisure community that was developed by Ayala Land Premier. Owners can choose between an Anvaya luxury villa which comes complete with its own private pool or building their own vacation home right in the middle of the stunning sea views and lush forests.
Anvaya cove was designed to create a different experience for each member of the family. It combines leisure and nature seamlessly by providing top notch modern living luxuries interspersed with the fauna and flora which is unique to its location. The developers put aside sixty percent of the site’s environment to be left un-developed which allows the residents to be immersed in a beautiful interactive nature setting which promotes family bonding.
Unlike other leisure communities, Anvaya offers many resort like amenities, events, services geared toward the mountain experience as well as beachside pleasures.The Main Pavilion houses the Bamboo Cafe, Sambali Music Lounge, Wine Room, and Library Lounge. The Beach and Nature Club’s Pool is large enough to be a small lake. Swimming in this pool you will feel like you are actually swimming in the ocean because of its close and expansive panoramic view of the sea.
Families with kids might want to check out the Seahorse Kiddie Village where you can check your kids in the Beach and Nature Club’s daycare. Your children will have fun in the Kiddy Pool, Children’s Arts and Activity Play Center, and Children’s Indoor and Outdoor Play Zones. And for serious pampering, the Veda Spa will provide you with a profound peace and well-being. Veda means divine knowledge or wisdom in Sanskrit.
The beach here is very swimmer friendly with calm crystal water and a gently sloping sea bottom. Also at the beach you will find the Pawikan Bar and Grill, Game Room, Beach Cabanas and a Lookout Tower and Tower bar which offers incredible views of the local sea and mountains. If you are an active type, check out The Great Lawn. Here you can enjoy a game of pick up soccer, softball, Frisbee or just fly a kite or RC planes. This is a perfect place for a family reunion or party or any huge outdoor gathering.
Guests looking to stay for an extended period of time can stay in the Lagoon Suites. These are elegant accommodations that range from one to three bedrooms and have awesome views of the Great Lawn, Main Pavilion and Lagoon.
Explore nature and yourself at the Nature Camp. This area provides wilder activities such as zip lines, a ropes course, ecological trails, camping grounds a kiddy obstacle course and an open air amphitheatre. And of course what resort would be complete without the ability to scuba dive, jet ski wind surf, kayak or go deep sea fishing? This is all possible at the Watersports Pavillion.
The resort is only 2.5 hours away from Manila, thanks to the opening of Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway – the 96kms long highway that connects all the big cities in the North and Central Luzon. This highway makes Anvaya cove the fastest accessible leisure property in the country. Through Anvaya Cove, more are realizing what Bataan has to offer. And families are building their own history within Ayala’s seaside residential community – memories to cherish for a lifetime.
