a common theme i noticed among bluewater’s resorts is their use of wood. something that delights my senses because i love the rustic effect. it just adds a certain earthy feel to what would have been a sterile modern place.
as if it’s breathing.
maybe that’s why i love old wooden houses. or maybe it’s because i lived in one for the first 18 or so years in my life that i developed an appreciation for them that comes quite naturally to me. (nevermind the spooky bits.)
anyway, bluewater panglao beach resort felt warm and welcome-y like that. a lot of it had to do with the wooden structures. and, well, who am i kidding? the pool added a real nice finishing touch to the whole view too.
the second pool wasn’t too bad either. this one was located near the beach. (remember when i said the resort doesn’t really have a nice beach even if it’s a beach resort and all? well, their pools definitely made up for it.)
aesthetics aside, the best part of the pool that made me enjoy it the most was that you can go for a dip at night and the water doesn’t feel freezing. at all. as a matter of fact, it feels so comfortably warm you wouldn’t wanna get out, at the risk of turning into one happy prune. but, yeah, i think they have a water heater there or something so that was definitely a plus for me.
and for aeva too, most especially. squealing with laughter and recklessly jumping into the water in delight, confident that jeff would catch her each and every time. one time, jeff was being cheeky and deliberately left her paddling on her own for a few seconds.
the moment she resurfaced and got hold of her breathing, she immediately took the chance to reprimand jeff who was already holding her by her armpits: “BAD JEFFY!”
lol. fun times.
