8 Romantic Places in Iloilo City for Valentines Day

Aside from being known for being the "Queen City of the South," Iloilo rightfully earned its moniker "City of Love" for its strategic geographical location at the heart of the Philippine archipelago. It is also for this reason that Iloilo is frequented as a romantic destination to go to for couples every Valentine's Day.



If you're heading to Iloilo City this upcoming Season of Love, this blog from Lumina Homes gathered up all the best romantic places in Iloilo City where you and your dearest can come to, exchange your "palangga ta ka" affections, and simply relish the season of love together.



1. Iloilo River Esplanade

If you enjoy strolling and just admiring quietly stunning views, the Iloilo River Esplanade, or simply Esplanade for Ilonggos, is a romantic destination to simply be with your loved one and relish the quiet yet romantic moments spent together. The best time to visit the promenade is during the early morning in time for the sunrise and during the late afternoon hours for the exquisite twilight views along the river.



2. Molo Mansion

For cultural heritage aficionados, the recently restored Molo Mansion is the ideal setting to share a moment together and admire its architectural splendor. Built during the 1920s by the ancestors of the Consing family, the mansion boasts of Neoclassical grandeur that people taking a huge interest in architectural art will certainly appreciate. After your brief but meaningful visit, you can roam around, drink classical coffee at a nearby food establishment, and savor good food choices around the area.



3. Jaro Cathedral

A church date in Jaro Cathedral is perfect for couples who want to start the day spiritually. Church dating means you have shared beliefs, and that you take the Lord to be at the center of your relationship. This is almost a way to say that you can picture yourself gracefully walking down the aisle together in the church, and that you see yourselves building a family together in your own house and lot in the Philippines.


After your church date, you can simply roam around the city, visit the La Paz Market and savor the nationwide famous La Paz Batchoy, an Ilonggo noodle soup specialty.



4. Cafe Aroma

Want to go on a coffee date with an Instagrammable background and cozy atmosphere? Cafe Aroma is the perfect, aesthetic setting in the City of Love. Cafe Aroma takes a minimalist approach with its interiors, but this is exactly what makes it appealing to caffeine lovers and lovers in general. Cafe Aroma offers both coffee-based and non-coffee drinks and beverages, as well as delicious food to accompany the relaxing coffee sipping. Enjoy the peace and quiet and create a core memory at Cafe Aroma this Valentine's Day!



5. Iloilo Museum of Contemporary Art

If you need some time to reflect, an art museum in the City of Love makes for an ideal place to admire art pieces with the one you hold dearest to your heart. Some may say that museums are a thing of the past, but in an internet-saturated era, taking the time off your phone and gazing at contemporary artworks can be a source of mental and emotional relaxation. If you're happily unattached, a museum is undoubtedly a safe and comforting space for single people this Valentine's Day.



6. Festive Mall Cinemas

Valentine's Day dates almost always typically involve seeing a movie together. This will never go out of style, as watching a film together in a dark movie theater in front of a giant silver screen is the peak romantic ambiance. In Iloilo City, Festive Mall Cinemas is the right place to be to watch a movie this Valentine's Day. You might want to join other lovers by watching the Remastered version of the classic Titanic, which is showing in the Philippines for its 25th anniversary. Or you can both wax nostalgic and watch The First Slam Dunk. Either way, watch the film that you think both of you will love!



7. Muelle Deli and Restaurant

After watching Titanic together, the next best thing is to take each other to a fine-dining restaurant to devour good food and share a sumptuous mix of local and international meals. There's nothing to dislike about going to Muelle Deli: aside from the mouthwatering selections of good food, Muelle Deli features a stunning background of the Iloilo River and the Provincial Capitol. To make your date even more romantic, a live acoustic band will serenade you alongside other lovers who will be in this part of the city for Valentine's Day.



8. Blink Rooftop Bar

It's not unique, but it's always been timelessly romantic: go on a perfect little date with your significant other in Blink Rooftop Bar to toast over fine drinks and enjoy each other's company in an open-air setting.


Iloilo is indeed one of the resoundingly richest provinces in Western Visayas and the country at large. It is brimming with culture, traditions, major industries, festivals, tourist spots, and employment opportunities, among others.


It is for this reason that Iloilo province is a hotspot for developing residential and commercial properties to fulfill the ever-growing demand for affordable housing and, by extension, commercial establishments to make homeownership even more convenient for Ilonggo residents.

Lumina Iloilo is near hospitals, reputable schools, marketplaces, tourist spots, malls, and the city proper, to name only a few.
