Mention Iloilo and what immediately comes to mind is its city's Old-World charm and the surrounding islands' pristine beauty, especially that of the famous Islas de Gigantes. Now, another hidden island paradise is sure to be the next big beach destination as Huni, a boutique resort on Sicogon Island, started welcoming guests to its beachfront property on July 2.

It was in 2013 when Ayala Land acquired the 1,100-hectare Sicogon Island with the intention of developing it into a tourism estate, much like what the firm did in El Nido. By December 2016, it started testing the waters by opening Balay Kogon, which is lined with hilltop villas and beachfront huts. Huni boasts 52 spacious rooms in its two-storey property. Solo travelers or couples can choose the 33-square-meter deluxe room while families can enjoy the 53-square-meter suite. The resort is nestled between Mt. Opao and San Fernando Beach, which makes it a beautiful setting for a relaxing weekend (or even week-long) stay.

Ayala Land plans to open more facilities within the year, including a trail for mountain biking and a tower for zip-lining from a nearby islet to the main beach. Its old airstrip, which was the most direct way to access the exclusive island in the '80s, is also under rehabilitation to make way for the reopening of chartered flights to Sicogon.

Huni Sicogon is in Barangay San Fernando, Sicogon Island, Carles, Iloilo. For more information, visit Huni Sicogon's website.
