CAMP NETANYA: Santorini-inspired Resort & Spa in Batangas!

by Abigail Javellana

Camp Natanya

Camp Netanya Resort & Spa is a luxurious Greek-themed resort situated on the tropical paradise of Anilao, Batangas.

Here you can enjoy a little piece of Greece--soak in their pools, indulge in their Mediterranean fare, stay in their Santorini-inspired villas--all with a touch of warm Filipino hospitality.

We love the resort for its family friendly atmosphere, the amazing sunset view by the gorgeous infinity pool, their delicious food, its access to Anilao's world-class snorkeling and diving sites, the relaxing hike up Mt. Gulugod Baboy, and the fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Did I mention, it's just about two hours away from Manila?

Here's a photo essay of our stay...
