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?

I’M HOTEL is one of the best Luxury Hotels to open in Manila this 2017. It’s the only 5-Star Hotel in the heart of Brgy. Poblacion that houses the first Onsen Spa and the largest urban spa property in the metro.
The name is an invitation to guests to call the hotel their own and to personalize it to their preference. The “I’M” is a good branding anchor that sets it apart from the other business hotels and backpacker hostels in the area.
I like how they put emphasis on luxury with more focused on the what is truly useful instead of the usual over-the-top material things.
Here’s our wedding anniversary staycation experience at I’M Hotel last January…
A few of our more memorable family staycations were in the middle of a natural forest, with a short walk to a body of water like a beach or a lake, and just less than 90 minutes away from Manila.
LAKE FOREST MANSION is one such place–the luxurious sanctuary of Club Balai Isabel resort in Talisay, Batangas, just beside Lake Taal. It’s the perfect spot for a high-end staycation, with butler and maid service, and the option for a romantic poolside dinner.
Here’s a photo essay and some tips to have an awesome staycation at Lake Forest Mansion…

Bluewater Sumilon Beach Resort is one of Cebu’s high-end resorts situated on the 24-hectare Sumilon island off the tip of Southern Cebu.
The word Sumilon comes from the word “sumilong”, which means to take refuge, as the island’s caves serve as shelters for fishermen from incoming storms.
The island itself is filled with history and natural attractions. Whether its being surrounded by crystal clear waters with beautiful varying aquamarine hues, snorkeling in the first ever marine sanctuary, and lying on its white sand shifting sandbar, or kayaking at the natural lagoon, swimming with the whale sharks, and even the occasional sighting of black tip sharks, Sumilon has something for everyone!
We love the resort because of the Filipino lifestyle experience with their modern Filipino rooms and the warmest greetings from their fully employed all-Filipino staff.
