"If you want to break free from the Vigan stereotype, head to this hotel and enjoy its modernist concept." 

[BANTAY, ILOCOS SUR, PHILIPPINES] ► 'Metro Vigan' is used to refer to this cluster of towns around the city of Vigan. Vigan's tourism boom has stimulated economic growth not just inside the city proper but in the whole Metro Vigan area. In the town of Bantay, a hotel was built to break the rules—in a good way.

The World Heritage City of ▼ #VIGAN

#VIGAN


made a buzz globally because of its intact culture and heritage. The New 7 Wonders City and UNESCO World Heritage city statuses have been enough to bring tourists in the city—at some points, more than it could handle. There was even a local joke claiming that there's no longer a peak season in Vigan, only "super peak season."

When we talk about accommodations, Metro Vigan has many options. History lovers would love staying in ancestral houses turned hotels. For budget-conscious ones, transient houses have recently mushroomed in this city. For lovers of modernist, full-service hotel that offers the Ilocano hospitality that you wanted, the town of Bantay has many of it and Metro Vigan Fiesta Garden Hotel is ready to turn your Ilocos trip comfortable and convenient.

The Food Fiesta

Actually, this hotel started as a restaurant called Garden Fiesta Restaurant. If you're looking for Ilocano dishes, don't worry, they'll provide it for you. If you want some food other than Ilocano dishes, they have a wide array of offerings. Just check out their menu.

In our case, they prepared the food ala fiesta. All the food were displayed on the table and all we had to do was to pick what we wanted. Fiesta talaga! My favorites were the pinakbet, bagnet and poqui-poqui. I also love their soups!

Location, Contact Info

This hotel is conveniently located along the national highway in Guimod, Bantay, Metro Vigan, Ilocos Sur. It's around 10 minutes drive away to the tourist spots in Vigan.

When I visited this hotel, some of its buildings were still under construction so expect that they will be providing more services and rooms in the future.
