The Call of the Sea

Subic Bay’s The Lighthouse Marina Resort, world-class nautical charm

Glittering sun, stretches of aqua-blue waters, silvery sands and magnificent sunset... the combination is awe inspiring and mind boggling.

The allure of the sea and a guiding light in the heart of Subic; such is the charm of the Lighthouse Marina Resort.

The Lighthouse Marina Resort

Situated on the prime waterfront of Subic Bay in the province of Zambales, a quaint boutique resort hotel design by world-renowned architects and urban planners, Palafox Associates, calls to those seeking the adventure of enthrallment of maritime rest and relaxation. The marvelous scenic bay area of the Subic cove, sets a dreamy backdrop for the Lighthouse, which has become a standout feature of the bay’s skyline.

What began as an exclusive rest stop for sailors who ported in Subic Bay, the Lighthouse has since expanded into a full-service resort for regatta aficionados and vacationers alike. With its trademark “parola” that is the resort’s namesake; it’s no wonder guests return year after year to imbibe what this world-class hotel has to offer.

Maritime charm

Devoid of grandeur and massive multi-floor layered structure of a five-star hotel, Subic’s Lighthouse resort is simply impressive, elegant and classy. The exclusivity of this 34-room hotel is marked by its modern amenities, innovative architecture, and unique nautical theme.

With rooms with a terrace view of the bay, al-fresco dining at the resort’s Sands Restaurant, and a picturesque 720-degree view deck and bar, the Lighthouse makes ideal use of its beachfront location. Couple this with paintings and photos of sailboats, oceanscapes, and local attractions of the Subic Freeport which decorate the resort, the Lighthouse exudes a true sense of oneness with the waters which surround it.

Contrasting the stoic appeal of the Lighthouse Marina Resort are the modern amenities that the hotel has to offer. Wifi-equipped rooms with 42” LCD colored televisions, centralized air-conditioning, taxi services, business center with grand function rooms, pools and jacuzzis plus friendly well-trained staff, the Lighthouse is a home away from home.

Setting sail for everyone

Sailing enthusiasts from around the world already know what the Lighthouse has to offer. As host to several regatta events, the Lighthouse also caters to families who wish to taste the leisure that ocean has to offer. Guests can charter and have fun with family and friends for an unforgettable sunset cruise around Subic Bay on board a champion club racer over wine and cheese, refreshments and gourmet sandwiches; all these can be provided and arranged by the Lighthouse Marina Resort. Aspiring boaters can relax and unwind for the entire journey or choose to be actively involved in helping sail yacht.

Close to home

Its proximity and leisurely accessibility from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila is just an hour-and-a-half drive from the North Luzon Expressway access point in Balintawak. Likewise it is conveniently located along the beach front at the end stretch of Waterfront Road directly facing the imposing cove with a grand panoramic view of the forested mountains of Morong, Bataan to the left and the Zambales mountain range to the right.
