I Love BICOL (Part 2): Siama Hotel

(Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post.)

My family and I visited the province of Sorsogon regarding an urgent matter last June 2, 2015 and having read about Siama Hotel in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, my sister, my Dad and I thought it best if we could drop by the hotel and check it out since we will be passing it by going home.

After finishing everything, we headed off towards Brgy. Bibincahan which is just a few miles away from the city proper along the diversion road. Thank God for Google maps, we need not ask around for specific directions and found ourselves looking at the gates of the Siama Hotel.

If you are in need of a breather away from city life and opt to enjoy the bounty that nature has to offer, this would be the escape you’ve been needing. The hotel is situated in a secluded estate which is primarily cultivated as a coconut plantation. We already had an idea how the place looks like seeing the pictures in the local newspaper but to see is to believe.

We arrived after lunch time and the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the minimalist exteriors of the hotel lobby is that they wanted to enhance the interior decorations and furniture which was designed by one of the owners, Mr. Milo Naval, a well-acclaimed interior designer.

Indeed, the interiors of the hotel lobby from chairs, tables, lamps and cabinets are all a work of creative art and truly a masterpiece. What is interesting about it is that Mr. Naval came up with the idea of using indigenous raw materials such as rattan, native coconut products as well as wood from local trees depicting so much of the Bicol region.

Their very modern pool is the highlight of the hotel. It is just a striking fusion of having this beautiful modern pool nestled at the center surrounded by giant ferns and tall coconut trees in contrast to the minimalist, local design of the hotel’s exteriors.

They also have a hall for events and this is just suitable and perfect for wedding receptions, conferences, birthdays and other special occasions. Once again, the interiors as well as the exteriors of the hall did not fall short in evoking that subtle and yet sophisticated style – definitely no grandeur, shining, and shimmering designs everywhere. But if you ask me about elegance, Siama Hotel nailed it.

They are currently constructing an outdoor spa which is one of the things I am looking forward to when they are done with it. I must say it is going to be a one-of-a-kind outdoor spa which, once again, exemplifies designs made from local materials such as bamboo.

The outdoor spa are those surrounded by bamboo stilts behind the coconut trees and there are 3 of them being constructed as of writing.

This is going to be one of the best and state-of-the-art hotels in Bicol especially if you are in the province of Sorsogon and you plan to have your vacation in class and in style. Surely, your vacation will be worth it. 🙂

This is their website: http://www.siamahotel.com/.

P.S.

You’ll also find this very peculiar but creatively designed “eco-padyak” which is but a magnificent piece of art and a rarity.
