Project Review : The Thunderbird Residences Condotel at Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point La Union

There's a beautiful and new place to visit in the North : The Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point

The Thunderbird Resorts is a 65 hectare beachfront development at the Poro Point Special Economic and Freeport Zone in San Fernando City, La Union in the North. Poro Point used to be the location of the US Military Base-Wallace Air Station. The resort boasts  a 5-star hotel,   facilities and amenities like : a golf course, a beautiful infinity pool by the sea, a spa and wellness center, fine dining restaurants, a casino and a creamy white-sand beach. The resort complex is perched on a cliff overlooking the China Sea. The resort buildings' architecture are Greek and Mediterranean-inspired which makes it stand-out in its location by the sea. This resort development is definitely a big tourism boost in the Ilocos region.

Incorporated in the resort and hotel development are the Point Residences, a residential village (where lots and villas are being sold) and the  Thunderbird Residences, a condotel. The Thunderbird Residences Condotel is being offered as an income generating investment package.

The Thunderbird Residences privately-owned condotel units will be pooled together as part of the hotel managed properties and whatever income that is generated from the renting out of a condotel unit will be shared by the two parties (i.e unit owner and hotel management). On income sharing, seventy(70) percent  goes to the condotel unit owner and thirty(30) percent goes to the hotel management. Even if the unit is not rented out, a condotel unit owner still gets an income from the use of the common areas facilities.  It seems to be a very good investment indeed.

I hope that more developments of this type will sprout in the northern part of the Philippines. Having visited many provinces of the country, comparably, Ilocos ( Region 1) is one of the most scenic and historical region in the country. Add to that the hospitable and friendly Ilocanos of the North, this new resort development will indeed be a beautiful place to visit, live and invest in.
