Acuatico is the best beach resort in Laiya, Batangas. We stayed there for 4 nights. It is 87 miles south of Manila and is facing the South China Sea. Laiya is part of San Juan, Batangas. You can reach it by bus or you can drive there and it will take you 3-4 hours depending on the traffic.
This Balinese-inspired resort is fairly new and is one of the most popular resorts in Batangas. We stayed at their Family suite. The rate was about $250 per night. It has 2 bedrooms. The interior is very cozy although the rooms are too small and the space for your traveling bags is limited.
I love their infinity pool and the floating bar. They have an outdoor Jacuzzi too. We didn’t get to see their beach at its best since there was a typhoon when we were there.
Their buffet breakfast is decent and it came free with our room. Oceano Restaurant is the only restaurant in Acuatico. They serve Filipino, Asian, and continental dishes. Their food is a bit expensive and I’m not so sure about the quality. They can do better with their dishes.
Your stay in Acuatico Beach Resort will be best enjoyed if you go there during summer (March-May). There are several Laiya beach resorts but Acuatico has the best infinity pool.
Overlooking the beach
Come and explore Laiya and the rest of San Juan, Batangas. They have lots to offer to tourists. It’s a fun place to bring your kids. Beat the heat this summer and have fun at the beach. It's more fun in the Philippines! :)
