It’s cliche but it still amazes me how many rich people there are in the Philippines.
SM Development Corporation developed this lavish 5-star resort in Hamilo Coast,
Nasugbu, Batangas called Pico de Loro. It is exclusively members only – unless you are
a corporation looking to have an outing or seminar or you get a member to endorse you.
For a minimum of PHP 4.5 million (equivalent to roughly USD 105k), you get to buy one of these condo-type units and enjoy all the amenities.
All the units you see in the picture above are all sold out. SMDC is building a new set of units somewhere within the area.
If you’re not a member, you can also enjoy what Pico de Loro has to offer by (getting a member
to endorse you and) booking a room in Pico Sands Hotel. The room rates are quite reasonable
and range from PHP 6k to PHP 10k a night for double bed to loft-type occupancy.
Personally, I think I’d rather spend on a vacation in Discovery Shores Boracay,
but for Manilenyos who want to enjoy the benefits of a beach via a short landtrip,
buying shares in Pico de Loro may be something to consider.
