|Solomon's Paradise main building|
Solomon’s Paradise Bar Grill Resort, along the 3-km. long Patar Beach, is operated by the nice and friendly Australian Brett Solomon and opened last March 2008. This place truly lived up to its name, being located in a short but very private white sand cove between towering, wave undercut rock formations. Both rock formations have two sea-sculpted caves and each had small huts on top where one could do quiet contemplation while enjoying the invigorating sea breeze and admiring the huge South China Sea waves crashing against the rocky shore, a scene truly reminiscent of the movie “Wuthering Heights.”
The resort has a main building with roof deck (where you can watch the sunset or dine al fresco) and a well-stocked bar. Behind it are accommodations for guests consisting of a native-style rowhouse with 3x4 m. fan-cooled rooms (PhP1,600-2,000 for 2 people and PhP2,500-2,900 for 4 people) with common verandah. In front is a beach volleyball playing area. Common toillets and baths for guests are located at the main building. The resort is a 3-min. drive from Cape Bolinao Lighthouse. During calmer moments, guests can swim at private coral-lined "bathtubs" and explore the sea caves.
