Redefining leisure

The concept of "forging memories that bond the family" was Ayala Land Inc.’s (ALI) inspiration for creating its first leisure project in the North — another vivid example of a long-term vision that proves the company’s leadership in the real property market. The name selected for this pioneering project is Anvaya Cove, a name drawn from the ancient Sanskirt word that means "Family."

"Of all the people in the world, Filipinos are the ones who put family above all," said ALI vice president Ma. Victoria E. Añonuevo, who is also the head of the company’s leisure and lifestyle communities group. "Despite our busy schedules, most of us strive to make time for our families. We love to enjoy life and consider these leisure moments as valuable opportunities to bond with each other."

Anvaya also pertains to the concept of "the natural order of things," a concept embodied in this development that will strive to work with the lay of the land and enhance the natural beauty of the varied characteristics of the landscapes within.

"To us in Ayala, Anvaya Cove is more than just a leisure venue — it is a community where families will truly thrive," added Añonuevo.

ALI’s decision to embark on this landmark development was also sparked by the fact that, for many years now, the demand for residential resorts and leisure living has been growing in the country.

"Ayala Land has recognized the potential of venturing into residential resort developments and we hope that our expertise and experience will raise the bar of such developments throughout the country," explained Añonuevo. "Through Anvaya Cove, we hope to redefine the concept of a leisure community by emerging it with the concept of family togetherness while retaining, protecting and harnessing the natural beauty that already exists in the site. "Thus is born a first-of-its-kind leisure residential resort where every aspect is geared toward creating the perfect setting for meaningful family bonding.

Anvaya Cove is envisioned as a place that will bond relationships with your family, with nature, and with yourself. It is set within a naturally beautiful seaside residential leisure estate just north of Manila - in the neighboring town of Morong, Bataan, near the pulsating leisure destination of the SBMA with its many new restaurants and activity nodes such as the Ocean Adventure, El Kabayo, Zoobic, Extreme Adventure, eco-trails and the like. Enjoying the full resources and backing of ALI, Anvaya Cove has now become the country’s most anticipated leisure development site.

Anvaya Cove truly embraces the natural order of things, boasting of a 3.5-kilometer coastline and a private cove within the Subic Bay, and framed by the Zambales and Silangan mountain ranges that rise majestically around the provinces of Zambales and Bataan.

Spanning a total area of 320 hectares, Anvaya Cove will primarily offer a Beach and Nature Club and residential components comprised of neighhood lots and villas for the perfect vacation or even primary and retirement homes.

The Beach and Nature Club is the heart of Anvaya Cove’s dynamic leisure lifestyle. It is designed for numerous recreational family bonding activities centered around specific natural offerings of the site. There is also an expansive pool area for adults and kids alike. At the water sports pavilion, parents and children can also have endless fun hours on jetskis, speed boats, and rafts. Families can sign up for sunset cruises, island picnics, or deep sea fishing. They can also opt to learn all about scuba diving, sailing and surfing with various lessons and clinics.

At the lagoon recreational area, both young and old alike can embark on row boating and fishing; hobbies such as kite-flying. Frisbee and mini soccer games can be enjoyed at the Great Lawn, a large open field developed especially for such big group activities.

Biking and hiking and nature trails will wind along the natural paths that extend across the 320 hectares, and the aventurous may get off the trails to try out the adventures ziplines and ropes courses.

The residential component of Anvaya Cove, meanwhile, is comprised of both neighborhood lots and villas. The development is not meant to be a passing leisure destination but as a thriving seaside residential community where grand beach billas will soon be built to offer the perfect home from starting families to grandparents to the generations after.
