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

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?

Bambanti Festival 2017: The Pride Of Isabela (Photo Essay)

Bambanti Festival is the official festival of the Province of Isabela.  Held annually in the month of January, the award-winning festival has become a key factor in helping to build a cultural identity for the residences of Isabela.

People flock from all corners of Isabela to celebrate their rich agricultural heritage in song-and-dance, and a little friendly competition.

The festival derives its name from the Ilocano word for “scarecrow”, and the Bambanti have become the iconic symbol for the farming communities of Isabela.  Its meaning is emblematic of the historic ties farmers have with scarecrows and their crops, and represent the diligence and resoluteness of the people of Isabel.

Festivities start on the 23rd of January, culminating in a show-stopping extravaganza on the 28th.
