I have been staring on this blank space for hours and every attempt to start writing nostalgically the memories of my once in a lifetime, luxurious experience at Villa Angelina Luxury Suites in Dapitan City, it just made me want to walk down the memory lane and relive everything on my head.
The cozy grand king size bed, the breathtaking view outside the balcony while soaking in the warm jacuzzi, the rain shower in the bathroom, the sumptuous food, the infinity pool, the van every time it fetches us from and to the resort, the thank yous and “maayong adlaw” greetings of the staff, and even the beep sound of the keycard whenever it granted me access to enter the realm of a royalty.
Every bit of experience literally gave me chills and until now, it’s still hard to believe that Zamboanga del Norte has a luxurious destination spot. It makes me honestly proud because as a local travel blogger who just travels around my home province because of pandemic, it’s beyond what I have imagined that it would be.
I am not going to be able to move on from this experience ever without sharing it. That’s why, I am so happy to show you a virtual tour in the most luxurious getaway and premiere hideaway resort in the south– the Villa Angelina Luxury Suites!

All private vehicles will be parked on the provided parking lot at the second gate where a complimentary van will take you from and to the villa. It will fetch you from the 2nd gate and bring you to the reception area of Villa Angelina or directly outside the doorstep of your assigned casita if you already have checked in.
It can also bring you into anywhere down in Dakak and pick you back up in the villa. Just ask any food establishment in Dakak to phone call the reception.

Style and living really go well hand in hand in Villa Angelina Luxury Suites.
More than fifty casitas are strategically perched on a seaside cliff. Just outside the balcony of the casita cliff, you can see the other casitas aligned beautifully and the view of the long stretch of beach shoreline of Dakak Park and Beach Resort.
Each casitas are world-class designed, elegant, spacious and well-lit. Interiors are rustic and minimal with a touch of a scandinavian design that I’m completely obsessed with which makes it very homey and lived-in feel while the glass wall with smart curtains to maximize the benefits of technology offers an even more posh atmosphere.
Every corner of this air conditioned, 206 square meter room is very instagrammable, too.

Where To Eat in Villa Angelina Luxury Suites
Most of the tourist destinations, no matter how expensive or affordable it is, it’s always the food that makes the guests come back. For foodie travelers, I know you’re curious on what Villa Angelina serves in their luxury resort.

Villa Angelina takes pride of its exceptional taste of authentic asian cuisine that serves, but not limited to Japanese and Korean dishes of Yugo Asian Fusion Restaurant.
Yugo Asian Fusion Restaurant serves a wide varieties of breakfast meal from the famous filipino silogs to some choice of bacon and egg which is a famous American breakfast to a light morning meal of continental breakfast. They have appetizers such as kimchi and tore karaage; salad, ramen noodles, sandwiches, entrees, rice bowls, soup, sashimi, bento box, and shabu-shabu.

This restaurant is also a contactless order resto in Villa Angelina that offers QR code which redirects you into a digital menu— a friendly-user menu access and the fastest serving time of food. You can also use this when you want to order food from your room or when you’re in the restaurant.
2. Korean BBQ in the Garden
It’s so unfortunate that I never got the chance to try their Korean BBQ in the beautiful garden view with overlooking scenery of the sea. This can be availed through a reservation a day before because of the tables being limited and the time spent for preparation of the food ingredients and everything.
To book, you can call the reception area from your casita and schedule your Korean BBQ day. Best time to avail this is on late afternoon going sunset. Noon time is not advisable because it gets so sunny and hot.
3. Sabores Del Mar
This soon-to-open Mexican restaurant is located on the semi-private beach within the complex of Villa Angelina just a few steps going down from the villa. It’s also the viewpoint if you’re At The Spa.
Sabores Del Mar being the semi-exclusive area of Villa Angelina with an amazing beach view, a lot of guests opt for a romantic setup here especially to those who wants to plan a surprise celebrations. Villa Angelina also caters a decoration service if you want. You may tell them your concept idea and they’ll try to make it happen for you.

With only one food restaurant that you can try in Villa Angelina, you can also go down in Dakak if you’re looking for a different taste especially when you’re staying for more than a night. Dakak has a lot of food to offer compared to Villa Angelina — from Italian, Hawaiian snacks, to Mediterranean cuisines.

Unfortunately, Dakak does not offer room service so you cannot have your food delivered to your casita. However, as a VIP guest, you will have the means to use the complimentary van and pick up the food instead.

Here’s a travel video summary of my 1-week trip in Dapitan City
I’ve heard a lot of things from other people of what they think about Mindanao especially in Zamboanga Peninsula. They think that this province is nothing but all just mountains and seas. It is! In fact, I don’t deny it and won’t ever complain because we are rich with culture, people, and nature. The beauty of it is our own luxury and it will never ever going to replace their high-rise buildings in the cities.
