Bagac is Bataan’s tourism capital, well-known not only for its stunning beaches but also its heritage. Whether it’s a beach trip, a hiking adventure, or a solo or family vacation (or staycation), Bagac is a great destination for those who want an adventurous vacation experience.
Aside from beaches and mountains, Bagac is also home to Rancho Bernardo Luxury Villas and Resort, Bataan’s only European-inspired luxury resort. Rancho Bernardo is built on an 8-hectare property within the lush mountains and infinite landscape of Bagac, so guests are sure to enjoy breathtaking views from the comfort of the resort’s stunning suites and villas. The resort is owned by the current mayor of Bagac, Ramil Del Rosario, his daughter Mel Christine Del Rosario, and the shareholders who own the 8-hectare property the resort is built on.
Rancho Bernardo officially opened its doors to guests in December 2020. Since then, it has quickly become a luxury destination favored by celebrities like Ellen Adarna and Derek Ramsay, who tied the knot at the resort in November 2021.
Aside from its palace-like event venues and beautiful villas, Rancho Bernardo also offers a variety of facilities and services so guests can have a fun and relaxing experience during their stay. For those who want to get some exercise done, the resort has a well-equipped gym, a basketball court, and a swimming pool. For those who want a calm and relaxing way to rest and recharge, Rancho Bernardo recently introduced the newest addition to their facilities, CURA Spa.
On November 25, 2023, Rancho Bernardo invited guests to the opening ceremony of CURA Spa, the resort’s new luxury spa. To celebrate the spa’s grand opening at the resort, guests were given a tour of both the spa and Rancho Bernardo’s suites and villas and were treated to massage sessions at the spa.
The name of the spa is derived from the Latin word meaning “help” and “care.” CURA Spa is dedicated to providing the resort guests a sanctuary where they can rest and rejuvenate. The luxury spa has a variety of treatments that are specially curated for relaxation, restoration, and inner harmony.
CURA is committed to helping guests rest and rejuvenate during their stay, so their massage treatments are centered on physical relaxation and soothing relief. The spa’s signature massage is an aromatic massage that provides both physical relaxation and emotional rejuvenation.
For those who want a luxurious spa experience, CURA’s Luxury Bliss features a revitalizing Himalayan salt and virgin coconut oil body scrub along with their signature massage.
If you want a spa treatment to soothe body aches and pains, CURA also offers the traditional Filipino hilot, which is good for promoting circulation in the body. There are also the Rejuvenating Massage and Deep Muscle Massage sessions for soothing pains and calming the body and mind.
CURA also provides other services for a luxurious spa experience, like face treatments, waxing services, and spa treatments for hands, feet, and nails.
CURA Spa is Rancho Bernardo’s newest luxury spa facility. If you’re eyeing Bataan for your vacay destination this holiday season, Rancho Bernardo and CURA Spa are definitely worth checking out.
