This is a native bungalow but really nice resort, you stay here like at home. The food taste really excellent. The staff are very approachable and kind. Quite and lovely place. We used to Dive here around. You just used the boat and enjoy your day.

The resort is peaceful. I like their wooden bridges for some reason. I didn't mind the short walk to the beachfront. Their rooms are good with spacious bathrooms unlike other resorts which make them teeny tiny. The food is 3.5-4.0 out of 5. It's not a five star hotel but they have variety. I liked the barbecue which they surely... More

I love this place. Good food, friendly staff, secluded and quiet. Perfect for a weekend getaway. A place do not have to be grand to be beautiful. This place is simply gorgeous and relaxing. Recommended!

1) Service: the workers in Balai Resort are very helpful and warm. They were all smiles when doing their job which made us feel welcomed. 2) Food: Was great! Seriously..:) 3) Room: Decent and basic but clean. Our electrical point in the room was pretty flimsy and exposed. I hope the management will look into it and do something about... More

We had a magical day trip to Balai Anilao in Batangas. The resort is about 2.5 hours drive from Manila, easy driving, 130kms, along provincial roads in the south of Luzon. We left the house at 6 and were at the resort by 8:30 in the morning. The directions from the website are pretty clear, we had to ask a... More

love this resort because it is like a home. food is excellent and dives are cheap! staff are friendly. it is nice because it is quiet (they do not allow karaoke!) and you have enough space to fix your dive gear, and relax afterwards. the deck by the dining area is the best place to sit, hang out and have...
