Synonymous to this town, once it stood witness to our country’s dark and tumultuous times, when our countrymen and that of those young men from the USAFFE gallantly and courageously took the stand to defend our motherland, risking life and limbs, against the invading imperial forces from then Imperial Japan. Combined defences of heroic albeit futile efforts both by our Filipinos and Americans soldiers converged in this once sleepy town of Mariveles, crossed the Manila Bay channel and set-up their last stand in the island of Corregidor. In just a few months in those horrendous years of 1940s saw how our young defenders gave up their lives, spilt blood on the soils of this beautiful town, how the invading Japanese forces raped, pillaged, and murdered their sons, daughters, mothers and fathers. Those dark days of this town in Bataan Province -- cemented by blood and hardship -- the scars of history of that dark decade was likened to a devilish nightmare.
Fast forward in time, the year now is 2018. With so much history of hardships and death engrained in the town’s soil and descendants, it yearns to go back alive. Like the rebirth of a phoenix rising from its ashes, the town of Mariveles – throughout the efforts and grandeur designs from Camaya Coast Beach Resort – it has bounced back to live again to share its beauty and majestic place sans the horrors that once stood there.
Upon an invitation of Ms. Rian Aceron, gentle Ilongga sales executive of Camaya Coast Beach Resort (+63 997 167 5417) relates that the development and dreams of this wonderful place of more than 100 hectares are up for sale only to such exquisite and privilege owners who prefers the exclusivity and privacy of the place, gentleness and simplicity of nature, despite the enormous expanse of the area they’ll accord only 30% of the land for development of beautiful homes. Most of the open spaces would be left untouched to have that majestic view of Mount Mariveles as your morning sight and that fable sunset of
Manila Bay... all can be seen from your hillside abode. She added that in the offing wouldbe
mountain biking trails, jogging trails, organic farming spots side-by-side with an internationally-designed 18-hole golf course, their exclusive Camaya Cove Beach Resort & Hotel (for families and guests of the property owners), and a whole lot more. Should you want to have a piece of heaven to be called your own in this side of Bataan, just give her a call or a message, she added. Not to spoil and open much of the Pandora’s Box, this opportunity definitely is worth every square inch. Give Rian Aceron a call soon, set a schedule should you be interested, and let her show you this marvellous place.
I could tell you more about the secret waterfalls after a good hike with wild deer, boars, fresh mangoes, cashews, other fruit-bearing trees that grows abundantly in that private enclave, or that perfect picnic ground to chill or camp over the stars at night with the view of Mount Mariveles and Manila Bay opposite – plus its attractive location just an hour by boat from Mall of Asia. Get a chance next time you’ll have your own house there for a quick chit-chat or a friendly banter with Marian Rivera, or Gary Valenciano, or Drew Arellano, or Ogie Alcasid, or to the Queen of Showbiz herself Kris Aquino, as your neighbours – but then, that’ll another story to tell. He he!
Indeed they have Reinvented Mariveles... you should take a look and visit the soonest.
Life is Good!
