The newly-opened BellaRocca Island Resort and Spa, a luxurious resort perched on a 20-hectare island of mountainous rolling terrain reminiscent of Santorini, Greece, inspired IslandsPhilippines.net to create a package that will allow travelers to enjoy paradise in a refreshingly new tourist destination.

The Philippines, an archipelago of 7,107 islands, is famous for its white sand beaches and other natural formations that make it a perfect adventure destination. But apart from its natural beauty, the Philippines is also proud of its rich culture and heritage. With the strong Christian background bequeathed by the Spanish rulers during their more than 300 years of occupation, the Philippines is known for its numerous festivals that feature a display of color and traditional and ethnic dances in honor of a city or town's patron saint or a remarkable event. These festivals usually last for a week or even a whole month, highlighted by parades and street dancing during the last two days of the celebration. The costumes, music, dancing, food and laughter that abound in Philippine festivals draw quite a number of foreign visitors to come and take part in a celebration they will not see or experience anywhere else.

Known as one of the most colorful and intriguing festivals in the country, the Moriones Festival is filled with Roman costumes, painted masks and exotic settings. Legend has it that Longinus, a half-blind Roman centurion, pierced Jesus on the cross with his spear and was healed by the blood that spurted out from Christ's wound. The Moriones Festival is a commemoration of the passion of Christ and of the miracle that converted Longinus to Christianity.
