When I heard my neighbors Tony and Mary Teng were building a resort in La Union, it came as a surprise. They are in Laoag most of the time and extremely busy tending their businesses, two of which, the Hotel Tiffany and the hotel’s famous Macy’s Diner. On second thought, their children are now able to help run their companies. It was Tiffany and Tracy who helped the dad put together Maritoni Bali Suites and Villas in Bauang.
The 4800-sq. meter resort was designed by Architect Rex Hofileña (he also designed Sitio Remedios). Almost complete, the 2 family-style villas are underway while all of the 28 suites are ready for occupancy. Not to forget, Richard Bumanglag, the Hotel Tiffany manager, shuttles back and forth to oversee details.
The family’s close friends in Manila and Ilocos traveled to celebrate the ribbon cutting and blessing of Maritoni. The portmanteau is quite cute and suits the laid-back motif. I personally love the idea that you can also make it a wonderful pit stop in between a long travel to the north, or an alternative home if you’re going to surf in nearby San Juan.
The suites are fairly sized, couple friendly, and has indoor as well as outdoor shower spaces (In fact, my favorite part of the room. See what I mean in photo below).
A pool awaits guests and the beach is just across the street.
The ladies at Macy’s Diner, led by Sally, traveled all the way from Laoag to Baung to prepare the Ilocano buffet lunch for Maritoni’s opening.
