Aquaria Beach Resort (Review)

Sep 2, 2014 | Family & Life

If you’re going to ask me and my husband what our happy place is, that would be BEACH!

So if you are looking for a resort near Manila, why not check out a new place we’ve found in Calatagan, Batangas πŸ™‚

My husband proposed to me atΒ theΒ beach (Matabungkay, Batangas) ,

we exchanged our vows in aΒ beach too (Laiya, San Juan Batangas).

Then, we celebrated our Wedding Anniversary still atΒ theΒ beach (Boracay, Aklan)

And since our Baby Zee turned ONE last May 28, 2014, we’ve decided to celebrate it in a beach. Β hehe.

Then we saw AQUARIA BEACH RESORT online, Β a new beach resort in Playa, Calatagan, Batangas. It is part of Playa Calatagan’s Leisure Tourism Estate developed by Landco. From ManilaΒ travel time is 3 hours.


Here’s their admission rates for non unit owner:

The sand…Β not so white.. not so brown.. its CREAM πŸ™‚

The sea is calm, clear and bluish.. This beach looks like a virgin island.. perfect if you want to relax and unwind..

The resort doesn’t have any rooms, we’ve rented a table for PHP 200 only…

They have a restaurant, we’ve tried their chopseuy & calamari..

But if you wish to bring your own food, its ok πŸ™‚ there’s no corkage fees.


Refreshing Melon Shake…
