6. L’Sirene Boutique Resort

Self-confessed water baby and mermaid Sam Pinto opened L’Sirene Boutique Resort in Baler, Aurora in 2017.


She was inspired by mermaids and her love for surfing, that is why she decided to put up this business in the surfing capital of the north. This 15-room resort is quite small compared to other resorts but Sam made sure that these rooms will be spacious enough to hold families and friends (and pets!) seeking refuge from their busy lives.


The laid-back and minimalist rooms of the resort face a stretch of swimming pool with the call of the ocean and waves just nearby.
