Snapshots: Misibis Bay, Albay, Philippines







While being a cube-dweller for a corporate multinational entails staying within the four walls of flourescent-lit office space, eyes staring at a computer screen filled with spreadsheets and Powerpoint presentations for most of the year, thankfully, it also entails a few travel perks. Last year, I got to stay at the lovely Misibis Bay in Cagraray Island, Albay, Philippines for four days and three nights for a company activity.

And while I derive a certain happiness and sense of achievement from roughing it out and backpacking/flashpacking (e.g. hanging out on a foreign sidewalk at 2 am after a red-eye flight, because we didn't want to check in at a hostel anymore as we waited to take an 11-hour cross-country bus ride at 6 am the same day), I wouldn't say no to a free stay at a luxurious resort either.

Impeccable facilities and good food are basic requirements for a fancy resort, but I think that what really makes a resort luxurious is exemplary service, in which case staying in Misibis Bay is quite literally sitting on the lap of luxury. There was a bit of a mess when we checked out on our last day, however, but I'm inclined to cut them some slack for the mishap, as they had just newly-opened at the time, and we were an entire department trying to check-out in order to get to our early flight back to Manila, so things were bound to get a little crazy. But it was nothing they couldn't learn quickly and be better at in due time.

I'll write more about my stay in Misibis Bay in due time (I tried windsurfing for the first time when I was there - it was awesome!), and post more pictures of the place soon.
