CORAL BEACH CLUB Batangas

note: 3 people guessed my contest trivia last time. GOYO, Feil Khun and Ardee Sean. I picked the winner via draw by lots. LOCATION: Binangonan Rizal.And the book goes to...drum roll --- Fiel-Kun. congratulations!!


I am growing weary of this alternating sunny and rainy weather with matching humidity beyond tolerable levels, my most hated time of the year when you don't know what to expect. Di nalang umulan kung umulan. Been hitching for a retreat.

Good thing my friend offered her condo in Coral Beach Club Batangas.

CORAL BEACH CLUB  Batangas

taken in the bus yesterday.
Suddenly gloomy again due to the low pressure area above Manila.

Only 4 of us were available out of 6 who planned for it. I made a resolve that I will go there even if it takes only Teresa and me. Sure enough, the weather was cooperative last Saturday. You can reach Matabungkay for 2 hours if you have your own car. It took us 3 hours to commute.


Coral Beach Club

CORAL Beach Club is probably one of the best resorts in Batangas, specially in the area. I am not saying this because my friend's husband is part of the consortium of foreigners married to Filipinas who set up this resort but because it is the most decent and luxurious place to stay.

Room rates start at 1,999 so I guess they are good. We didn't get to check them coz we stayed in my friends condo just across the street, a comfort afforded only to the owners of the resort. Since they live abroad now, they opened the place for rental should there be guests or families big enough to fit in one room. We had all of it for free.....

si Teresa parang Dona lang ah...hehe

The condo has a private pool so we were pacing back and forth from the beach to it. I noticed that other resorts don't have pools. The beach area is so so. Sand is fine but if you are looking for powdery white sand, don't go here. Matabungkay is just famous especially to foreigners because there is an Ayala-owned golf course nearby and some dive sites.

I could just stay under the tree and stare at the open sea the whole day....

Coral Beach club is complete with amenities, pool area, restaurant ( not all resorts have resto)cable tv, wifi connectivity, bar, play and hilot area. Prices are a bit expensive though. Full body massage is at 500 php per hour and the food is also pricey. What we did is buy our own food and cooked. That's against the rules of the resort .We were able to do that since we stayed in the condo so it saved us a lot on the food.

The good life. I just got back to Manila but I am already looking forward to another out of town retreat. haha
