Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa

Here is the latest news on Bellarocca Resort and Spa-formerly Elephant Island. It is a shame that the resort is not open to the local public for a daily visit or use of their restaurant. I have the current promo rates if you are interested.

Below is the information I received from Mr Paolo Gamalinda, Resort Manager, Marinduque in response to my e-mail inquiry.

Warm greetings from Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa!

Thank you for your interest in Bellarocca Island Resort which
opened last February 14 2009.

We opened our ten private villas, thirty hotel rooms (including
junior suites and 1-bedroom suites), hotel facilities, food and
beverage outlets and select water sports activities and tours.
The other accommodation types such as the four terrazas are
scheduled to open by April 9, 2009 and the nineteen Casas
(1, 2, 3-bedrooms)by July 2009. The spa rooms will be available
by April l5, 2009 and the golf course by July 2009.

We are currently extending up to 40% discount on our room rates
until October 31, 2009 as our special introductory rates.
The discounts are not applicable during peak seasons such as Easter.

Please find the attached information and rate sheets of the resort
for your immediate reference.(I will send you a copy of the promo
rates if you like).

The cheapest hotel room is $252 per night and the most expensive
is $752 at the current discount rate of 40%, plus 12%VAT and
10% service charge excluding meals and other services.

Current airline flying to Marinduque is Zest Air. The flights are
four times a week (Mon-Wed-Fri-Sun) to Marinduque Airport.
Advance purchases of promo airfares online are being offered
as low as PHP3,000.00 net round trip per adult. From the airport,
our guests are picked up by private speed boats and yachts,
depending on the expected number of arrivals.Travel time on the
boat is around 35 to 45 minutes. Transfers can also be made by
land on our private vans, depending on the weather and sea conditions.

The restaurant offers dishes ranging from 500 to 2000 pesos
per dish.Special meals such as vegetarian or kosher dishes
may be requested ahead and can be served in your suite.

Rumor from the locals indicated that the resort is a member of
International Interval(II) and may be available for vacation
exchanges. However, after I talked to II, this rumor is indeed
just a rumor.The resort is not a member of Interval International.
The resort website, www.bellaroccaresorts.com is under construction.
