When people speak of and hear about Lopez, Quezon, it’s just usually about how quiet and raw the whole municipality is, or that it’s a few hours away from Bicolandia. It’s one of the largest municipalities in the province but to be honest, there isn’t much else to see and experience aside from 3 points of interest that you’ll come across when you run a search on Google. It’s the Pulong Niyogan or Coconut Island, Matinik Beach, and Lalaguna Marshland which I actually haven’t been to. Also, I have to mention that the area is surrounded by the sea and the view can be amazing especially at sunset.
That is until Lost Villa came into the picture. Lost Villa is a new tropical-themed resort in Barangay Lourdes in Lopez. It’s still in its soft opening as of this writing, but a lot of guests are already visiting from nearby towns and even from Manila.
The owner of the place is Lost Juan, a travel vlogger now with almost 300,000 subscribers on Facebook alone. Thus, the name of the place. While he doesn’t really like to introduce the resort through him, you’ll spot many references of his travels and adventures in the resort. There are decors from Basilan and the wooden plates where guests use are from a local supplier in Pampanga, among many others. This shows how intricate all details of the place can be and you’ll surely be inspired to travel when you visit.
Upon arriving, guests will walk through a large charming bamboo entrance with huge plants on the side which will already make you feel like a VIP. The whole place is surrounded by coconut and bamboo trees and various floras and faunas. It’s easy be reminded of Bali or Siargao when you’re here. Backed by lo-fi and calming music, you might find it hard to believe that this place exists in Quezon.
The place is mainly for relaxation and quality time with your family and friends. Of course, the swimming pool is the superstar but they have ATV for rent, as well. Recharging and lounging by the poolside is something you’ll really appreciate in this place.
Lost Villa has non-aircon rooms for couples and barkada of 4-6 or families, glamping in their gazebo, and they also accept day tours if you don’t have the time for an overnight stay. You can also rent the whole place exclusively. Food are upon requests with Philippine cuisine as their specialty and I can attest to how good their food is and how generous the servings are. They have silogs on the menu for breakfast and some pica-pica for snacks.
The best thing for me in this place? The delicious iced coffee they have on the bar while you bask under the sun or forest bathe. Another is the friendly and hard-working staff they have. They’re very attentive and accommodating.
