Outfit Details

Dress: 6 Shore Road (similar) / Sunglasses: Karen Walker

While in the Philippines, I had the unexpected pleasure of touring Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. It’s a project under construction by owner/architect Jerry Acuzar, whose goal is to buy and relocate the most beautiful and noteworthy Spanish colonial houses from the Philippines onto this picturesque strip of beach in Bataan.

You can rent out an evening at these amazing homes!

You see, Bataan is my father’s hometown and I left it up to him to plan our itinerary while out there. There are a lot of hidden treasures and historical sites that I wish I read up about before coming to the Philippines. The locals and other people in-the-know take day tours to Las Casas, but the place still largely remains vacant and unknown. This is probably due to it’s ongoing construction. My dad mentioned nothing about this stop so my first introduction to this place was when I arrived at it’s gates. After the next few hours touring the grounds, I vowed to come back and stay at this resort in the future so that I could fully take advantage of all the wonderful things it has to offer.

This place is like a Discovery Channel episode crossed with Disneyland crossed with a beach club. I have never experienced anything quite like it. When it’s completed, it will be a real winner.

You’re totally right. I was very happy and excited to show up when I did. It was definitely a pleasant surprise however I love to know where I’m going and plan all the time. Lol I can’t just play it by ear. I feel like there might be important things I’d miss. Luckily this was not one of them!

Even though the place is still under construction, what ever that is already there already looks beautiful. I can only imagine how majestic the place would be once the construction is completed and I do hope you’ll go back! That dress is stunning on you and dang, white pedi looks great on you!
