L’Sirene Boutique Resort in Baler, Aurora is yet again another gem we came across in finding the best secluded locations for a weekend getaway. Being the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, Baler is teeming with large groups of tourists seeking exciting activities and has been an absolute favorite destination for most. For those looking to see Baler in a different light away from the mainstream crowd, we highly recommend staying at L’Sirene Boutique Resort.
L’Sirene was originally a rest house for the surfing adventures of actress and avid surfer – Sam Pinto, the resort has officially opened its doors to the public last April 2017. It is approximately 5-6 hours from Manila and is the perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle.
Accommodation and Ambiance
The Bali inspired rooms are beautifully minimalistic neatly painted in white with neutral colored decors. Each room has a small area outside with a tanle, chairs, and a hammock for relaxing siesta moments after hitting the waves of Baler.
Additionally, it is a pet friendly accommodation. Perfect for pet parents!
Quiet, relaxing, peaceful, and serene, the place is like an island of its own with no nearby resorts and establishments. We surely enjoyed having the sense of privacy, especially when we went surfing (no audience to watch us flip over repeatedly from our surf boards).
Note: For security purposes, guests are required to bring at least 1 valid ID.
Activities and Services
A gorgeous looking pool sits at the very center of the resort. Since L’Sirene is relatively new, plans are on its way for the construction of an infinity pool with the overlooking view of the beach.
* Board games
* Bonfire by the Beach
* Movie Night
* Massage (room service)
* Fishing (SOON!)
Note: They can also arrange tours in Baler for their guests.
L’Sirene provides excellent customer service with their friendly staff and amenities. The Sirena Swimwear by Sam Pinto is also available at the reception.
A visit to Baler wouldn’t be complete without riding the waves. L’Sirene offers surf lessons for 400/hour (surf instructor with board).
The beach area is exclusive for resorts guests. We had the whole beach all to ourselves when we were having surf lessons – such a relief! The surf instructors are really good and patient with beginners like us.
Food: Siren’s Bar and Resto/Johnny Kahuku’s
We love everything about L’Sirene and the food is certainly amongst the top of the list.
The food are really good and they add amazing twists to typical Filipino dishes: Tinolang Tahong, Ginataang Adobo, Cheesy Grilled Bangus, Paco Salad etc. Everything is just delectable! Special mention to the marvelous chocolate ice cream cake which we all finished in a 3 minutes and forgot to take a photo of because that’s how good it was.
