When time or money won’t allow you to go on a real vacation, the next best thing is a staycation. Which usually means booking a hotel room, stuffing your face with junk food, and binge-watching movies until you pass out.
But staycations don’t have to be so predictable! They can be just as exciting as out-of-the-country getaways without the hassle of going through airport security or sitting still in a plane for hours.
If you’re looking for an adventure-packed staycation experience, there’s this one beach resort in Anilao, Batangas where you’ll be doing SO much more than just lying around in bed. And get this: it’s only about a three to four-hour drive from the city!
Go swimming, island hopping, snorkeling, and scuba diving at Eagle Point Resort!
Eagle Point Resort, a family-owned business, has been around for over a quarter of a century. Throughout the years, they’ve come to be known as a luxurious but affordable weekend escape, drawing in nature lovers, beach bums, and the occasional group of employees coming in for their team building event.
You’ll also find this place packed with snorkelers and scuba divers, but it’s no mystery why–it’s the leading diving destination in Anilao! Situated at the tip of Calumpang Peninsula in Batangas, Eagle Point Resort is right smack in the middle of THIRTY diving spots! Which makes it one of the best places in the region for water enthusiasts to do what they love.
You don’t even need to ride a boat to find a good diving spot because literally everywhere is the perfect spot! Guests can jump off from any of the resort’s piers and they’ll be treated to a spectacular view of Anilao’s underwater paradise. Snorkeling and scuba diving are year-round activities here so you can try them out whenever you want to.
If you’re not into snorkeling or scuba diving, there are a bunch of other water activities you can do here like riding a banana boat, kayaking, or island hopping. But if you want to stay away from the ocean altogether, you can always just take a dip in the pool.
Though you might have a hard time deciding which one to swim in because there are three!
There’s the two-level swimming pool that’s connected by a slide. Then there’s the south end pool from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Maricaban, Sepoc, and Sombrero islands.
But the coolest one would have to be the 12-foot reef pool, complete with saltwater and marine animals (including baby sharks!) It’s the perfect training ground for novice scuba divers or anyone who’d like to get a feel of the ocean first before actually plunging into it.
There are 75 guestrooms to choose from, all with an amazing view!
Obviously, you can’t call it a staycation if you don’t have anywhere to stay in. So go ahead and choose from any of Eagle Point Resort’s 75 Cottages and Terrace Hotel Rooms! The best part is, they all have verandas that overlook the sea!
Another requisite of a great staycation is delicious grub. Luckily, you don’t have to go far for that because all the tasty food you’ll need is right here! If you’re looking for a full meal, you can go to Eagle’s Nest Restaurant, the resort’s main dining concept.
You can start out with appetizers like the Chicken Satay, Sisig Spring Roll, and Gambas ala Pobre. You can then move onto entrees like the Pad Thai, Penne Al Pesto, and Pepperoni Deluxe Pizza. But if it’s drinks and pulutan you’re after, hit up Mojito Poolside Bar & Grill or Bayview Dive Club Bar & Resto!
From adventure, to comfort, to food, all your staycation needs are covered at Eagle Point Resort. Round up your fellow weekend warriors and plan your getaway already!
