Best Resorts in Batangas You Must Visit this Summer

Sadly, we’ll have a rainy summer. Oh why, oh why? Due to the untamed and quite confusing climate change on earth, summer here in the Philippines could be a wet one. Tsk.

But there is no reason for us not to enjoy this season especially the young ones who would take a rest from school. Check the best resorts in Batangas through this list:

Residencia de Riego Resort, Alitagtag

Although it would be a bit crowded on weekends, it’s still the best time of the week to visit this one-of-a-kind resort in Alitagtag. Residencia de Riego has great facilities and we’d have to give plus points on the cool vibe flourishing all over the resort. Get to enjoy the 12 color logic lights on the three swimming pools. Enjoy backstroke or freestyle as the water changes its reflection from red to violet to green and so on.

To learn more about what Residencia de Riego has to offer, click resort in Alitagtag, Batangas.

Galilee Place Resort and Spa, Balete

When the team visited Galilee Place in Balete a year ago, (the first Galilee Place is in Brgy. San Sebastian, Mataasnakahoy) it was still under construction and whatever will rise on the location, aside from the already existing huts and rooms, were all shared to us through our interview with the resort owners.

Galilee Place Resort and Spa is located along the shoreline of the vast Taal Lake. Do you want a serene summer destination along a majestic natural wonder? Galilee Resort and Spa in Balete will give you the serenity and recreation your overworked body needs to have.

For a complete feature on this Balete, Batangas resort, click Galilee Place Resort and Spa.

Villa Khristalene, Talisay

It’s the ‘poshness’ of luxury resorts squeezed in this property. By land area, it’s not as vast as other beach resorts you frequently visit. But Villa Khristalene has something really special.

One, it’s also sharing the lovely view of Taal Lake and the Mt. Binintian across. Two, guests must try the food in the restaurant, particularly the Pinoy dishes. Three, it’s a pool resort, you can enjoy a swim, or try their other activities – billiards, boating, fishing, or singing out loud in their videoke room. If you want a treat for your tiring muscles, their have massage chairs there.

La Virginia Resort and Hotel, Mataasnakahoy

When you get here, it’s like you’re setting foot to a couple of different resorts with the extensive land area that cradles many resort features to enjoy.

Take a refreshing dip in the infinity pool; take pictures on The Buddha View-Deck and feel like you’re in Thailand; have a massage in the spa village; ride on the La Virginia Zipline! Whatever you want to do – roam around and take pictures, eat at the restaurant, or take a snooze in their hotel rooms – a day wont be enough.

You can visit their site to check on the rates and other important details: www.lavirginiaresort.com

Club Balai Isabel, Talisay

When I did the “wedding venue of the stars” article, this resort sits perfectly on the earlier part of the post as it has only been a few days ago before that article was written, when celebrity couple Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Sotto got married in Balai Isabel.

This 10-hectare resort reflects Filipino hospitality matching the global standard in the industry. People might think that this is owned by a foreign business tycoon when in fact, this is owned by a family who hailed from this side of Batangas.

It’s among the numerous resorts in Batangas which shares the captivating view of Taal Lake and the ‘often mistaken to be the Taal Volcano’, Mt. Binintian. Club Balai Isabel’s infinity pool is one of the largest swimming pools I’ve seen so far. Just like any other resorts, Club Balai Isabel has a lot of fun activities available for every guest’s satisfaction. (Photo Credit: www.tripadvisor.com)

La Sueña Brisa Beach Resort & Events Place, Lemery

This one you should check out if you’re heading to Lemery. La Sueña Brisa is located along the shoreline of the Lemery beach. The resort boasts of its two main attractions – the infinity pool with color logic lights and the butterfly garden which adds the ‘close to nature’ experience.

La Sueña Brisa has an in-house catering service and the Bien Cocido Restaurant to satisfy your cravings for sumptuous dishes while on vacation.

A few more resorts coming up! :)

Have the best summer vacation! Either sunny or rainy, just enjoy the trip. If a stay in any of the resorts mentioned above won’t be enough, check out other things you can do in Batangas.

    will try out a newly opened resort in Balete Batangas – Punto Miguel Lakeshore..hope to have at least a decent stay this Saturday. I can’t find any reviews yet for it.

  • Wendy

    been to Punto Miguel Lakeshore – good feedback: courteous staff, acceptable but really simple food taste. But all other things you’ll be looking for a decent resort? nada

    1. rooms cannot be cooled by their aircon. their aircon is too underpowered for the room. not to mention that their structure are more like a workaround solution for the contractor (eg fillers for the aircon window are obviously plywood. and the pole that supports the back of the aircon – is just a wooden plank.
    2. do not forget to bring mosquito repellers – nope not for the outdoors, but indoors! you’ll be swarmed by mosquitos inside the rooms!
    3. it’s hard to walk on their shoreline. and walking barefoot is a no-no. funny how they advertise their resort that they have a nice man-made white shoreline.
    4. their Pool is clean, but some tiles are already broken considering that this is a newly opened resort! Did i mention that you cannot, again – cannot swim in the lake. Too murky. Made me thinking why the hell do they have a banana boat?!
    5. Nothing to do here. Sight not even good. I can’t figure out where the hell is Taal volcano from where they are located?
    6. Their rates are too pricy for the experience you’ll get. they charge 1650/night/pax for a complete 3-meal set. I’d say 500/head is enough – just like paying for the mediocre food.

    Punto Miguel Lakeshore, do something about your resort issues otherwise you won’t last long, that’s for sure.
