Casa Blanca beach resort is officially called the Casa Blanca By the Sea by its corporate owners.
I first visited this resort in October 2015 during my first visit of the popular Olango Island group. It is located just right beside the resort (Sagastrand) where I enjoyed my short stay.
I discovered this resort not when I searched the internet but only when I started to explore the island that day. I didn’t even know that this place with its structure and facilities exist.
Yup, just when I pedaled for a few times I couldn’t stop but notice the simple gate and the structure inside the that gate – a palace-like building with green sprawling lawns.
I saw some passersby and gently asked if anyone is allowed to go in and see the place.
Got the answer saying ‘yes’ but still ambivalent since the place looks very upscale and private.
Anyhow, as a tourist exploring the place I told myself that I can make any excuses if I commit trespassing. I was somehow correct and wrong at the same time. Yes, it was a private beach resort but they also welcome visitors who might be willing to stay in or just explore its facilities.
As I cycled carefully over the concrete path cutting across the green Bermuda grass, I heard music and was people gathered over a tent with party facilities under it – food, drinks, tables, chairs, musical instruments, etc.
Then I watched gently approached by a woman who asked who I was and my purpose of getting inside their facility. I introduced myself and she responded saying they are having a birthday celebration for one of their business partners. She’s one of the co-owners of Casa Blanca Beach resort!
Telling them who I am and what my purpose for intruding at their resort, one of the ladies generously guided me to see the facilities and the surroundings of this elegant place. Below, you will see what I saw…
I saw the place and witnessed with my own eyes and other senses the resources for vacation or social event they offer.
Casa Blanca Beach Resort has an expanded and articulated swimming pool. I call it expanded and articulated because it is not just the normal rectangular-shaped pool. It is shaped like number eight and there is an island in the middle with plants on it and a small white overpass (or bridge) crosses over and above the pool.
Certainly, it is great for cooling off, enjoying the sun, relaxing on the lounger with parasol above you and cold drinks on your table beside.
The beach area is also fantastic for games and barbecue party. The beach area is big enough for a family or big group for any event and games you have in mind. Of course, you can swim on the fresh seawater during high tide (mostly).
By the beach area, you will find this floating facility where you may enjoy your meals. I guess you need to make a special request for this facility in advance, which is not a problem at all.
Restaurant & Dining Area
Yes, they also have a restaurant and dining area which can accommodate for a lot of guests for any social or formal event you wish to happen in this place.
You may arrange in advance your event or stay and for catering services you want to avail.
The resort can arrange island hopping activity for your group if you want to. Usually, as I have experienced, island hopping in this area offers it as a day activity and you may visit around three islands.
In those islands, you can enjoy your lunch (could be a package deal depending on your arrangement), swimming, snorkeling, fishing, among other activities you want to request.
This is a paddle boat that you can rent from the facility. It is a relaxing way to explore the nearby place, see the fishes underwater, explore the mangroves or go fishing.
You can do this during your island hopping activity. Or, visit the marine sanctuary nearby by either arranging with the Front Desk or visit the sanctuary by yourself.
