We really can’t blame the Kardashians if they can’t get enough of infinity pools, can we? The sight of infinity pools can make us see how beautifully a man made pool connects to something much bigger that is God-made —may it be sea, sky or mountain top. And so, the continuous search for the best viewing infinity pool has been a thing. Well, Philippines couldn’t be the last to be known for this. 140 km south of Manila is the infinity pool of Acuatico Beach Resort in Laiya, Batangas.
Acuatico Beach Resort is a premium luxury resort and has been a destination resort of Philippines for the past 11 years. The resort’s infinity pool has made its way to be known worldwide. Internet articles don’t miss out on mentioning the resort’s name when it comes to the search of infinity pools. Some of these articles are — 10 Drop Dead Gorgeous Hotel Infinity Pools Around the World by Huffington Post New York; Infinity Pools that will Take Your Breath Away, by Luxury Escapes Australia; 36 Epic Beach Hotels to Visit Before You Die by Insider; 22 Incredible Infinity Pools That are Calling Your Name by Trendir; Top 23 Most Insane Pools You Won’t Believe Exists by Bright Side.
Infinity pool is open from 6:00 am to 10 pm.
Aside from its famous infinity pool, the resort is also known for its excellent guest service and great food. They highly value the privacy and exclusivity of the resort and the personalised service of the staff. No wonder why they keep on topping as Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards.
Inspired by Balinese design, the resort has 21 rooms of 2-3 bedrooms, some are located beachfront. There are 8 room types, kindly see unique accommodations of each room type, here. Rooms include much for a luxury resort, and mentioning here are the things I care about — flat screen TVs, coffee & tea facilities, complimentary water, fruits (wow), hair blower, and bath tub. Rooms ranging from P6,000 for 2. Check out for their prices here.
The resort is also known for its Acua Bar, the famous floating pool bar. It offers cocktails, wines and spirits. If you wanna drink without tripping off the pool they offer non-alcoholic drinks and bar chow items. Acua Bar is open from 9am until 12mn.
Another Acuatico’s pride is the Oceano Restaurant. It is a buffet restaurant so as usual –there’s so much expectations, from the range of food selections up to the food service. The restaurant serves mostly Filipino dishes. Some may reviewed the restaurant as having few selections but me being a fan of Filipino dishes enjoyed the food so much like, grilled tuna, adobo, caldereta and bulalo. Like I could taste freshness in every bite. And as always, hands down to their service.
