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 :)
My husband proposed to me at the beach (Matabungkay, Batangas) ,
we exchanged our vows in a beach too (Laiya, San Juan Batangas).
Then, we celebrated our First Wedding Anniversary still at the beach (Boracay, Aklan)
And since our Baby Zee turned ONE last May 28, 2014, we’ve decided to celebrate it in a beach. hehe :)
Then we saw AQUARIA BEACH RESORT online, a new beach resort in Playa, Calatagan, Batangas. It is part of Playa Calatagan’s Leisure Tourism Estate developed by Landco. From Manila travel time is 3 hours.

Zee with Mimi :) They have really great landscaping designs.
The place looks safe for kids.. This made the resort great for family get-away.
Pool time with Didi, I’m sure your kids will love this area – my Zee loves the fountain…
The sand… not so white.. not so brown.. its CREAM :)
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 :) there’s no corkage fees.
Refreshing Melon Shake…
Breastfeeding along the shore? Love it!
Family Shots :) Thankful to God for this wonderful day, for His beautiful creations,
