Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta.

Exclusive Accommodation: El Masfino Hotel and Resort

Folks living in Metro Manila who wants a quick getaway and get off of the busy city, they will pack their bags and head straight to either Batangas, Laguna or Tagaytay to get a dose of Vitamin Sea or perhaps an overnight stay in a hot spring resort, but little did I know that aside from these provinces there is also a place just an hour away from Manila that you can enjoy fresh air and relax for a weekend. 


Bulacan is just an hour away from Quezon City and getting there is easy as pie, just head straight to EDSA then NLEX and exit to Balintawak and head straight to San Rafael Bulacan and there you will find El Masfino Hotel and Resort located at Royal Northwoods. An exclusive hotel that offers affordable hotel rooms, a Deluxe Room is only 5,400 PHP / 110 USD per night good for 2 pax inclusive of free ala carte breakfast and free use of lap pool, wave pool and karaoke room (first come first serve basis).

Our Deluxe room has a comfy bed, cold a/c and an easy access to the pool. And the resort also has a playground and beach volley area. If you are traveling and staying with young children and young adult they will surely enjoy their stay here. There are so many things to do here in El Masfino. 

We totally had a great time overnight with fellow bloggers, I even had a chance to drive a gold cart and doon buggies. We also had a chance to try golf but I haven't because I was busy packing my bag and flying my drone, lol. 

Also, that there is a community located in Baliuag Bulacan - A Square. This is the first community hub that gives a great opportunity for Bulacuenos Entrepreneurs. And there will be an open-air bazaar on July 23rd at the parking area of A Square. Lots of concessionaires will join the bazaar to sell clothes, food and a lot more. 

To book a room at El Masfino visit and you can get a 30% discount.


Exclusive Accommodation: El Masfino Hotel and Resort


  1. It looks so inviting! The swimming pool area is so elegant!

  2. I honestly underestimated Bulacan a lot, my lolo's hometown. I can't wait to check in now!

  3. What a lovely destination! Love the pool and the car! So much fun. Philippines is on our bucket list for 2018. Will keep it in mind.

  4. El Masfino looks like a great place to stay and unwind! I particularly love places that offer some activities. I love Go Karting and the description of the place is great! So I would love to visit El Masfino based on your advise.

  5. Looks like a good stay option in mid budget range. The amenities are good.
    Wonderful captures of the place with drone.

  6. The place actually looks amazing especially the swimming pool. Too bad I didn't learn about this place sooner; I was actually tasked by my teammates to look for a place for our team bonding. Had I known about this, I would have recommended this. And you can actually play golf?! That's so cool, I have always wanted to try golf. ​

  7. The fact that Bulacan is so near to the city makes it an attractive destination to get away in the weekend. The El Masfino looks like a great place to unwind and relieve the stress of the week. Seems like a lovely resort set in the midst of nature. The pools looks gorgeous. It must make for a relaxing and rejuvenating stay before heading back to the city.

  8. This is like a dream place. From rooms to the lawns everywhere seems to be so specious and so beautifully done. And it has so much greenery. I would love to spend a getaway time here.

  9. El Masfino surely looks like a gorgeous resort for a luxury vacation! I was in Manila for 2 weeks and had Bulacan on my list, but somehow never went there! Great that you enjoyed the amenities of the place! Loved this.

  10. Wow ang ganda ha! And so near the city. Punta tau lahat ulet

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean.
