The best boutique hotel I have experienced in the Philippines !
We took a taxi from Manila , 2 1/2 hours (2,500 pesos) to Batangas Port and a 'Comandos' ferry (200 pesos) to White Beach , 90 minutes) . White Beach is very scrappy . 5 minute ride to hotel round the corner on the best beach .
The hotel has been open about 2 years and is beautfiully desinged and thought out . Very spacious room , double and 2 singles ,Wi Fi , TV , modern bathroom and private balcony .
The hotel has it's own private beach and there are some good walks around the corner along a much larger but uncrowded beach . The weather wasn't perfect but it didn't matter , we ate all our meals at the hotel , the food is terrific both European and local menus , all very fresh and good value . One of the very few places in the Phils where they actually serve proper coffee , decent milk shakes as well !
Lots of nice touches , flowers on the tables and nice paintings in the rooms . Very attentive and charming staff , nothing too much trouble . A golf course nearby , a waterfall and water sports available .
The owners have got it spot on and i wish they could transplant their obvious hotel management skills to the other places at which I've stayed !!More
