Vigan is now named as one of the 7 New Wonder Cities of the World and if you are planning to visit Vigan anytime, I suggest you book a room at Hotel Luna.
Hotel Luna is located a few steps away from the famous cobblestone street, Calle Crisologo. The perfect place to relax after a day of touring Vigan or walking the famous calle.
This is the entrance of the hotel. The hotel is fairly new but the design matches those of the old houses in Vigan. Upon entrance, you’d be impressed how the hotel maintains the “old” aura. Even the Hotel rooms have the ancestral feel, bathroom included!
This is the lobby of the hotel. With this architecture, it’s not too hard to imagine your receptionist to be in her Maria Clara dress. As you enter the hotel, you’ll notice the many artworks displayed in almost every corner. There are paintings, sculptures and art installations to marvel at.
And this is the view from outside our room (view below). The pool area is quite small but the kids had fun in the pool. I had fun too.. and you know it means big. I didn’t worry that much though the pool was 4 feet deep. Sati and Chico just stayed at the pools steps. The kids also had fun with the waterfalls effect on the right side of the pool (the one that is not in the photo) and the changing pool lights.
As I have mentioned in my Vigan post (read: Vigan Travel Experience), we had a corner room at Hotel Luna. Our room was really big, spacious and very homey. I love that it is carpeted. I have a thing with floors.. and any carpeted floor is my new bff.
Here’s the photo of the room:
See how big it was (the glass door over there leads to the bathroom). Not in this picture is the vanity area and coffee table.
This is is the bathroom..which was a bit cramped. I actually had a problem with the sink being that near the toilet bowl.
the other side is the bath area..
And this is the fun part! Imagine an ancestral looking hotel with this kind of technology inside the bathroom!
Cool di ba? San nakakabili nito? Gusto ko din ng ganitong high tech sa banyo ko haha
More room photos..
We only got to try their breakfast and we’re more than satisfied with the food displayed..
But more than the food, it was their staff at Comedor that is worth mentioning. They are very attentive and courteous and very helpful too!
As mentioned in their website, Hotel Luna is the first and only museum hotel in the Philippines, indeed they are. Although I cannot vouch for the fact that they are the only museum hotel, I can attest to the fact that Hotel Luna is really a museum hotel. Every corner is a place to admire.
At the right side of the hotel lobby is a grand staircase that leads to a grand sala where most art installations and paintings are located. This is also the part of the hotel where the Executive Suite is located.
Our overall experience at Hotel Luna is excellent . And my kids said we should go back at Vigan and stay again at Hotel Luna.
For that trip, I bought two hotel vouchers from Deal Grocer. A night stay at Double Queen Deluxe (with breakfast for 2), for less than $100 USD or 4000 PhP. I booked the room via email and Hotel Luna was very prompt in answering my inquiries and booking my reservation.
Hotel Luna is located at Luna Street, 2300 Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Accommodations vary from Queen Standard, Deluxe, Double Queen Deluxe, Executive Suite to Loft Suite. Accommodation price starts at 3000+ PhP
