I am positive about this that when someone speaks of Lian Batangas, Matabungkay Beach Resort enters your mind.The resort property has been around for 30 years it has been synonymous to this side of Batangas. With it is a rich legacy.Long before Boracay and other destinations became famous, the then Matabungkay Beach Club used to be the "it" place for beaching and resort standard.
But 30 years behind it could also be a drag. The Filipino customer of our generation has never been as discriminating as it is now.Social media has made "buzz creation"much faster.When people are not satisfied about a resorts services and/or facilities, people speak of it real time and the implications could either make or break a place.
MATABUNGKAY BEACH HOTEL recognize that. The response is the re-branding of the property and the continuous upgrading of its facilities. Matabungkay Beach Hotel is now juggling to introduce such changes while making sure it stays true to its tradition and rich heritage.....that's no easy feat.
But with all the metamorphosis going on, why does Matabungkay Beach Hotel continue to attract vacationers by the thousands?
MATABUNGKAY BEACH HOTEL Batangas
here are the
The beach is perfect if you want to have that beautiful tan. It's shallow so it's perfect for families with kids with them. It's also perfect for activities such as kayaking as you don't have to worry of drowning if you topple from your kayak---that is, if you don't know how to swim.This is a family friendly beach.
This is a major sell for Matabungkay Beach Hotel. It's very famous for group retreats. Groups come in hundreds and sometimes in thousands. With other resorts in the area not capable of accommodation big number of guests, the hotel is on the leaderboard when it comes to group retreats. I saw a couple of groups by the beach doing team building on our way to the beach concert when we were there.
And speaking of beach parties, Matabungkay Beach Hotel hosted a summer kick-off concert last time with no less than THE BLOOMFIELDS as guest performers!!! I will be talking about the concert on my next post. For now, I wanna say, I am now an avid Bloomfields fan!!! And to Matabungkay Beach Hotel, more beach parties please!!!!
This is what I mean when I say the resort is ALIVE!!! There are so many things to do so people don't lock themselves in their rooms.They go out, they play, the socialize!!!!
There are tents available at one section of the resort should you decide to give your weekend retreat a twist. Camping anyone?
There's still something for those who prefer indoor sports. The start of summer in the Philippines has been weird.It was strangely "wet"and wet it was when we arrived at Matabungkay Beach Hotel. It rained the moment we started eating lunch!Hahaha.
The rain might keep you out of the ground but it doesn't mean there's nothing more to do here. There's table tennis, dart of billiards. And if that is not enough, there's even a VIDEOKE ROOM for you!
If you are like me, you might need to loosen up a bit before you grab that microphone and sing. Order cocktails at the Cogon Bar. They have the perfect mix for you.
Who doesn't love videoke anyway? This facility is a sure hit.Wet summer? I don't think so. Let's give "singin in the rain"another name.
After a long day and all the fun activities. There's nothing like a relaxing massage.In our case, ito pa nga ang inuna namain when we came. yeah, we all lined up for the massage.
I am sure some of you still want to see the upgrading going on in Matabungkay Beach Hotel that I was talking about a while ago. I will update you with it and the photos I took in connection to that on my next post.
