It's officially summer and when the opportunity came to visit a resort in Calatagan Batangas came, I hurriedly grabbed it. It's a few hours away from Tagaytay City which is also pretty close to Manila. This is Aquaria Beach Resort. A sprawling property developed by LANDCO Pacific Corportaion, the same people that brought you Playa Laiya, Playa Calatagan, Hacienda Escudero, Terrazas De Punta Fuego and others, this world class property at Playa Calatagan, Calatagan, Batangas is but a piece of paradise that would cater to people of all walks of life, in this place, anytime. We ventured to Batangas the morning of March 23rd with my blogger friends. If you're finding some place to be in this Holy Week or just about any other day this summer, check out this video about our journey there, plus the things I enjoyed the most while in Aquaria Beach Resort!
It was fun, it was glorious, you'll feel blessed to live in a country like ours. Aquaria Beach Resort has amenities that would be envied by other establishments of the same nature, and they've done this quite nice in some of the resort's awe-inspiring areas.
When you get off your car, you would be greeted by this imposing structure in front. This serves as their front desk and arrangements before you enter the resort happens here. Entrance Fees cost 500 for Adults, 250 for kids on a weekday and 700 for Adults and 350 for kids on a weekend. You can also rent a Cabana in the beach front for around Php 1000 or Php 1,500 that can fit around 10-15 people. Make sure you also bring proper swim gear and other stuff that you deem necessary for a beach trip, toiletries and towels included (because I don't think they have that on hand as of now). Property owners and their guests get perks of course so if you're thinking of getting a beach property anytime soon, they've only got a few units left so you better do it in haste!
Don't worry about having enough shower rooms or comfort rooms because this place has a lot inside this building. It also houses the locker rooms if you want to keep some of your things safe while you frolic in the sun, they've got that covered.
This is the Kid's Pool Area. They've got several fountains, water guns and water showers inside this area. I've seen life guards both in the beach and in the pool area so I think everyone's safe. Adults should stay in the other side which have around 4-6 feet of water if I'm not mistaken. Aside from that, this particular feature is fun!
This is Aquaria Beach Resort's Giant Water Slide. It's a big tube where you can fit huge 2 prong lifesavers that can fit 2 people in it. You go down the tube together and whirl your way down the pool, make sure you listen to the person upstairs so we don't get into trouble while doing the slide. It's ultra safe, but probably not for kids. Unless of course they swim like a fish for a living then that's an exception.
Up on the beach front they have these cozy cabanas which I deem you try and get if you wanna go here. It's a place where you and your family could spend the whole afternoon lounging around, having a glass of wine, a bottle of beer and barbecue. You can also rent a grill from them and bring your best meat, fish or poultry products if you're up to it. I got my massage here and it was very comfortable. They've got the beach volleyball, beach football amenities right beside it. Aside from that, they've got henna tattoo stations beside them as well. I got one before I left the resort and it's still here... I totally loved it!
As you saw on my video up there, they've got a ton of beach activities including open sea Kayaking, snorkling, island hopping, banana boats, jet skis, or just bumming around the beautiful shore. They've got around 4 kilometers of it if I'm not mistaken. They also have scrumptious food served at the beach restaurant which they call Sands. Kudos to the chef who grilled my baby back ribs, it was so good I had a few kilos of it still in my system. As with the other things, it'll be in my memory of this place... of which I promise to go back to when I need a beach refuge that doesn't entail a plane or a boat ride at all.
Thank you so much to the great people from Aquaria Beach Resort for making our stay memorable. I've already got friends and family asking about it and I won't hesitate to share how I got here. It's their turn to have some fun under the sun!
