It is known as Maldives-inspired luxury resort in Batangas because of its floating cottages. The resort is just approximately 3 to 4 hours away from Manila, depending on the traffic. The resort is located along the western coast of Calatagan in the province of Batangas.
The resort is really huge and you can choose from the three main beaches to explore: Serenity, Harmony, and Destiny. But the most popular among these beaches is the Harmony beach where most day-trippers are accommodated. One thing I like about the resort is that it’s pet-friendly, so you can bring your furbaby with you on this trip.
There will be an entrance fee of 500php/head and an environmental fee of 30php/head. If you plan to go there for a day tour you will be directed to the Harmony Beach where you can rent cozy nooks (wood tables) at 600php good for 5-10 persons or an open hut for 1,250php that is good for 15 persons. You may check out their other rates here. They also charge corkage fees for food and drinks purchased from outside to be consumed at the resort.
Day tour is only up until 6:00PM, and you also need to leave early if you are commuting because the last trip for the bus is until 6PM, and 4PM for the van.
The Floating Cottages are not accessible to day-trippers as this area is exclusive only to its guests, but everyone is allowed to take photos above the cliff area near the resort restaurant.
The resort is really instagrammable. You will surely find a lot of IG worthy spots within the resort. I also noticed that there are guards patrolling the area surrounding the resort which makes your stay very safe. But be sure to still be mindful of your belongings!
Aside from swimming, the resort also offers its guest to go on boat adventures, sandbar tours, ATV adventure trails, Mangrove eco-tours, aqua sports and diving. You’ll surely never run out of things to do here in Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort.
Overall, Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort is perfect for people looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy quality time with their family. We really enjoyed our stay and will surely come back soon!
