Pannzian’s food is created with love and happiness. A taste of the food makes the senses relax. It is a therapeutic session to soul. Everyone is invited to savor the expression of hospitality. Pannzian Beach is the hidden gem of the north. Where the people take pride in their prized processions which are nature’s gift and their community. The 10-hour drive to this place is definitely long, but the reward if serenity and calming wind breeze is something to look forward to.


The immensity of the shore gives you a sense of stillness with a panoramic view of the West Philippine Sea.

Having the mountains as your background you can spend a day trekking its path, jumping off nearby waterfalls, and swim its pristine surrounding clean rivers.

The town is quiet and sleepy. A perfect place where you can calm your thoughts.


Mindful Advocacy 

Pannzian Beach advocates slow tourism and farm-to-table dining. They grow almost all of their vegetables that they serve in-house comes from their own huge farm. From greens, grains, edible flowers, and herbs. They grow their own poultry products as well.


They are pretty much active in providing upskilling to their staff. Livelihood production like jam making, extracting lemongrass, etc. All proceeds from products sales go directly into a cooperative fund.


Co-existing with other communities 

They also help neighboring communities, one of which is Adams, which is a 30 min drive away from Adams. They produce wines (Bugnay),  coffee, ginger and turmeric tea, and tablea in Adams which Pannzian resells to its guests or features through their food.

Bugnay, by the way, is the Ilocano name of the berry-bearing tree that is widely known as bignay in other parts of the country. Its botanic name is Antidesma bunius.



Soft beds, a private bathroom, and a hot shower. That’s it. In essence of promoting a clean, stress-free, and healthy lifestyle. All rooms don’t have television sets or anything that is distracting as seen in other resorts. The time is slower and more relaxed.


  • Duplex (starts at 7,000php)-  The duplex rooms each have a second floor and a shared balcony overlooking the beach and camp grounds. Each floor have airconditioning-units, providing ample cooling during the warm season. These rooms are ideal for families and groups.
