The Vacation That Didn’t Happen

It was the beginning of my longest weekend a couple of months after being retrenched when my dear friends Kristine Neri and Tom Castaneda asked me to hie off with them for a couple of days in Siargao, when it still was a bit under the hotness radar as a surf and sun destination. Sadly, for one reason or the other (mostly personal), I ended up not going. What an idiot I was.

One of Kristine Neri’s wonderful corners for Kaza Siargao: rustic brick, industrial cement, raw wicker, and modern tropical lamps from Hacienda Crafts (both images here are from Urban Abode).

And boy, look at what I missed: you see, Kristine was designing the interiors of KAZA Siargao, it wasn’t your usual beach resort. For starters, there’s a raw, industrial touch to it, with a dose of tropical modern. There’s also a hint of quirky sweetness to it, as seen in the curly pendant lamps in the hallways, along with the coral and turquoise-blue abel blankets in the bedrooms.

I wish I could say I would see it soon, but we won’t be going anywhere for a bit. 😦 Meanwhile, check out more photos of KAZA and Kristine Neri’s other projects here.
