Say 'Aloha' to your Hawaiian Paradise in Laoag
July 01, 2011

Sometime in the 19th century, the so-called Ilocano Diaspora brought hundreds of thousands of Ilocanos not only to Central Luzon, Cagayan Valley, and Metro Manila, but even as far as the United States where they comprised the largest number of Filipino expatriates.

A huge chunk of those migrant Ilocanos settled in Hawaii, which perhaps should come as no surprise given that the environment and the climate of the youngest of the 50 states of the US is comparable to that of their homeland: abundant with plant life, with temperatures typically tropical with welcome temperate spells. This resulted to an interlinked culture between Hawaii and Ilocos.

Now, Hawaii-based Ilocanos thinking of either returning to or reconnecting with their historic homeland can do so without feeling like they have journeyed far from their adoptive US state. Robinsons Homes, one of the four residential brands of leading real estate developer Robinsons Land Corporation, introduces Hanalei Heights, its third residential project in the Ilocos region following its successful Brighton Parkplace and Brighton Parkplace North.

Hanalei Heights is situated in Brgy. Balacad, Laoag City, the first-class city in the province of Ilocos Norte where modern comforts happily co-exist alongside the rustic charms of incredible heritage sites and the verdant topography of the province. Hanalei Heights is located within just a few minutes away from the Laoag International Airport, schools, churches, hospitals and commercial districts such as the Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel and Robinsons Place Ilocos Norte.

Arch. Rex Hofileña, design architect for Hanalei Heights explains, “The island of Hawaii is often associated with a tropical paradise so we wanted to translate this feel to our development theme.” With a name that is coined from the Hawaiian words “hana” meaning beautiful and “lei” which means flower, Hanalei Heights pays homage to the Ilocanos’ deep ties to Hawaii by infusing a refreshing Contemporary Hawaiian in the over-all architectural theme of the subdivision.

The gate and guardhouse, crafted with indigenous rocks that are reminiscent of Hawaiian Lava Stones, is well-worth a marker for this residential community. Inside this 22 hectare property, residents can enjoy a special family gathering at the clubhouse, delight in a sporting activity at the multi-purpose court or indulge in a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. Hanalei Heights’ wide open spaces have also afforded its residents with nature parks and play areas. Even non Hawaii-based Ilocanos and their families will delight in the beauty and the avenues for good living that Hanalei Heights will bring to everyday life.

“In Laoag City, only Hanalei Heights offers a breathtaking view of the city, a natural rolling terrain and lush greeneries,” describes Hofileña. Coupled with its excellent location in the progressive city of Laoag, this tropical paradise might as well provide a year-round vacation to it residents. 

Robinsons Homes is one of the four residential brands of Robinsons Land Corporation offering choice lots with housing option located in projects nationwide featuring simple but fun amenities for recreation and relaxation. With over 15 years of real estate experience, Robinsons Homes continues its mission of bringing the good life to each Filipino.
