Whenever we are in the mood for an easy access hide-away and yearning a breathe of fresh ocean air, our go to place is Laiya, San Juan Batangas.
We have tried a few resorts at Laiya, but just recently found our favorite one. Welcome to Acuatico Beach Resort.
Acuatico Beach Resort is a Balinese-inspired luxury resort made up of modern villas and rooms surrounding one of the most beautiful infinity pools we have been to. The resort shares the stretch of pristine beach with neighboring resorts Blue Coral Beach and Acuaverde. The beach is undoubtedly clean, however, the sand is a bit rough and coarse (you would have to keep your beach sandals on, to be safe).
Philippine sunset is simply magnificent ~
We booked a Casita unit. Casitas are two bedroom (a masters and a second room with 2 twin beds) units located at ground floor fronting the infinity pool.
Location is perfect for those with kids who wont leave the pool.
I spent 4 days and 3 nights with my Ex (now husband) in Macau. Yes, it was difficult to leave my boys with my parents and I got a bit guilty, but later figured they will be fine (they are big boys now and besides, it was after all just 4 days).
We flew via AirAsia and arrived at the Macau International Airport (MFN) at 11am. RT Airfare originally cost P5500, however, I wanted a relaxed leg room and decided to pay extra (which rounded up to an additional P500/way) for "hot seats". It was one of the best decisions we've made on this trip.
After touch down, we made our way to buy a local phone sim, since this mommy was dying to call check on her kiddos. There are various local brands to choose from (you can easily buy through a vendo-machine or approach the tourist travel desk located near the airport exit gates) and ended up buying this brand. Service was good, but can't compare really since it was the only one we tried.
