Hotel on Spotlight: Best Western Plus Hotel Subic

Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) has grown to become one of the country’s most important economic and ecotourism zones, with duty-free shops, wreck diving, water sports, sunset cruises, and guided jungle treks taking prime spot in to-do lists.

With the wealth of things to do in Subic, hotels continue to burgeon in the former US Naval base. And where hip hotels are concerned, there’s one that stand outs among its peers: Best Western Plus Hotel Subic.

Top-of-the-line amenities

Best Western Plus Hotel Subic rests on an easily accessible spot in Dewey Avenue, a short walk from bargain shopping and water sports action. For those on a hunt for cheap gadgets and home appliances, a SAVERS Appliances outlet can be found on the second level.

The hotel’s proximity to Clark International Airport makes it popular with business travelers looking for a cozy spot to sleep in for the night. It offers useful amenities such as dry cleaning, free local and international calls, and a 24-hour business center equipped with fax, printers, and computers. Meanwhile, conferences may be held in an events hall at the ground floor. 

The rooftop infinity pool and jacuzzi, Sky Oasis Pool, overlooks Subic Bay and the Cawag mountains and remains the biggest tourist draw to date, particularly for couples. On a cloudless dusk, sunset colors shimmer against the lap and kiddie pools, making for dramatic frolicking. 

A well-equipped gym lies just steps away from the pool, available for use from 6 am until 10 pm.

Worthy grub

Surrounding the pool area is High Tide Pool and Cafè where you can grab cocktails and hard drinks until 10 pm. Sumptuous finger foods, sandwiches, and juices are on offer too.

For formal dining, there’s Spencer’s Fusion Bar & Restaurant at the hotel lobby, which offers a vast selection of mouthwatering Filipino and Western dishes, from pastas to lechon kawali to cakes 24 hours daily. Complimentary buffet breakfast, consisting of Continental, Oriental, and Filipino cuisine, is served here.
