I've tried a lot of affordable luxury resorts in Luzon and nothing compares to my infinity pool experience at Acuatico in Batangas. The resort is 3 hours only from Metro Manila. It's located in Laiya, that strip of long shoreline that most Filipino families have probably visited.

A stay in Acuatico is more expensive compared to neighboring resorts in Laiya and it should be that way. The resort garden is well-manicured. The accommodations are cleverly designed to make use of small spaces. The villas from the outside all look inviting and good for picture-taking. Each villa is angled for you to see the ocean from your window.



Food at the restaurant is done gourmet-style. Most of all, Acuatico's infinity pool is top-notch. It's always clean and it stays lukewarm the whole day knowing that it gets cold early in the morning or in the evening. I was in the pool almost the whole time of my stay.

Booking Tip: With several OFWs opting to have a vacation at the resort, booking is best done 6-months to 1 year before your stay. You may try to book a month before your stay but don't say I did not warn you. The resort has 8 various types of villas. It has a total of 21 rooms that can accommodate a maximum of 70 guests. Each room or villa has its own unique feature that corresponds to the needs of guests, whether they are a family, a group of friends on vacation or a couple on a honeymoon.

Getting There: I rented a car for this trip because there is no direct commute to it. However, if you need to rent a more affordable mode of transportation, all you need to be mindful of is the way to the resort from Manila. Click here for the route.

Acuatico is also more than the infinity pool. It's also about good food.

    1. Right, Em. Luzon pa lang naman so far mga travels ko so in Luzon, the best for me ang Acuatico so far. Food was served gourmet-style pa. I've already had relatives try it, too. The booking nga was done 6 months before the stay pa kasi laging fully booked!

    2. Ah tlaga? In fairness, nakaka-tiempo nmn kami ng 2months in advance :) But I heard during summer and December, dapat talaga at least 6months in advance ka magbook :)

    1. Yes, Ram. Batangas, plus Tagaytay and Rizal offer so much more than how they are perceived. Maraming pwedeng puntahan on weekends sa mga areas na 'yan and I'm also discovering it as I continue snooping around.
