Wild Orchid Subic
In recent years there has been a noticeable change in the Subic Barrio Barretto, Olongapo area and this change has taken the form of dynamic growth. There are now more bars, more restaurants and a diverse range of hotels than at any time in the last fifteen years.

Spearheading the change when it comes to hotels is the Wild Orchid. Situated on Baloy Beach road just across the road from Blue Rock this hotel is in many ways in a class of it's own. It is part of the Wild Orchid group and it is designed to give guests a luxury resort feel. This is the pace setter when it comes to hotels in Barrio Barretto.

The Wild Orchid Subic is in a class of it's own when it comes to resort style hotels in the Subic area and to be honest it has so many features one is at a loss where to start.

For me the major attraction of the Wild Orchid is the swimming pool and tropical garden area. When I go to Subic I like to get the feeling I am on holiday and at the same time enjoy a little luxury. The Wild Orchid with its splendid pool and tropical garden gives me this feel like no other. There is something to be said for rolling out of bed with your head pounding from the previous nights indulgence, walking five feet and jumping into the crystal clear waters of the Wild Orchid swimming pool.

The pool is large so if you want you can use it for exercise or like most people do just float in it and let the worries of the world idly pass you by. The pool also features a series of Jacuzzi tubs which are close to the bar and food and beverages can be delivered while you recline in the Jacuzzi. Another advantage is that it is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden which features green grass, lush vegetation and a number of tables with large umbrellas to keep one sheltered from the elements. This is a great area in my opinion and a major feature of this hotel.

In the hotel trade it is a commonly held belief that a hotel is only as good as its rooms and in the case of the Wild Orchid the rooms are probably the best available in Subic. There are several types of rooms which range in luxury and price. The rooms range from the Deluxe and Executive rooms through to the luxurious Beachside rooms, the spacious Poolside rooms and the truly impressive Penthouse suite the likes of which is unrivalled in Subic. All rooms feature quiet air-conditioning, hot and cold shower, in room safety deposit box, 32" flat screen cable connected TV, DVD player, refrigerator, telephone, free internet connection and 24 hour room service.

As the name would suggest the Penthouse is the top of the line suite and trust me when I say this room is truly impressive. The Penthouse suite is on the fifth floor and offers 3 separate bedrooms, an expansive dining area a luxurious living room, a built in kitchen with all modern conveniences included and an outside grass covered balcony which offers splendid views over Subic bay and the immediate surrounds. The Penthouse is not cheap but if one is the mood for luxury then no other hotel room in Subic can compete with this.

The other rooms that truly impress me are the poolside suites and the beachside rooms. The poolside rooms are literally five feet from the swimming pool which comes in tremendously handy when it comes to waking up in the morning. Nothing can compare with the refreshing embrace of the Wild Orchid swimming pool after a heavy nights drinking. For the beachside rooms these are impressive because they offer panoramic views of Subic bay, a lush tropical garden which one can relax in while taking in the ocean vista and the rooms are the epitome of modern functional design. I particularly like the jacuzzi in each room along with the rainwater shower and the very large and super comfortable beds.

Another area where the Wild Orchid excels is the food and beverages. To this end they have Scallywags bar and restaurant on the ground floor which features a wide range of food and drinks which can be enjoyed in the open air restaurant or the wet bar area overlooking the pool. The Wild Orchid has a distinctive design throughout all its hotels and this includes extensive use of timber and Polynesian native carvings. Both these feature prominently in Scallywags and give the area a unique and relaxing ambience. Scallywags is complimented by Captain Robs barefoot bar which is situated in the beachside garden overlooking Subic Bay. Captain Robs is basically a laid back open air bar area where people congregate to enjoy the sea breeze, some refreshing drinks, a quick snack or a full fledged meal from the grill area. Captain Robs grill area features a complete range of steaks and is the ideal venue if one wants a delicious meal overlooking the nighttime vista of Subic Bay.

The Wild Orchid Subic is definitely a step above the rest especially when it comes to a luxurious hotel that features the best of modern day facilities combined with a unique tropical resort ambience. If you are looking to enjoy Subic and pamper yourself at the same time then look further than the Wild Orchid, the hotel that stands alone in Subic.
