contributing to the goals of The Society. They will be able to participate in a continuous selection of events formal and informal happening through the year: small events like music concerts, literary soirees, old and new movies shown in our salon…As well as big events like a series of performances for dance, opera, and theater both classical and contemporary.
The guest cottages will vary in size, price, and style from native chic to simply lavish. Some will have cable TV, Internet, and AC.
The service will be of barefoot luxury, friendly and attentive. The food will be simple but fresh and wonderfully exotic, not forgetting the must-haves like wonderful café au lait in the morning, fine wines and champagnes, sparkling waters, and divine desserts.
On special occasions…Helena and Richard will host formal events where guests will be requested to dress and sit with them at sumptuous table for dinner. After, drinks will be served while playing billiards in the game room, there will be dancing in the moonlight with an orchestra, or conversing in the Salon.
There will also be water sports: diving, snorkeling, boating, sailing, kayaking, and windsurfing. Also tennis, biking, hiking, and swimming in the natural pool right in our Botanical Gardens.
Other amenities will be part of the Mangenguey experience: eco-safaris through The Calamianes with picnics in our bankas. Also trips to neighboring villages to see how the work of the Society is helping transform these communities with sustainable enterprises, preserving their ecosystems, and reducing poverty.
