Philippine Love: Escape to Valentino

11:11 PM

I've been spending too much time in the beach this summer and a resort and spa was a breath of fresh air. My Saturday was made for relaxing. Valentino Resort and Spa makes you feel like you're in your own private rest house in Batangas.

Start of your morning with a walk around the place. It's a place you can imagine having your pre-nuptial shoot. You have romantic benches, a hanging bridge, and a view deck for Mt. Makulot. There are flowers and trees everywhere.

Once you've gotten tired of walking around, take a dip at their pools. Or at their not-so-hot but very bubbly jacuzzi. You'd have to walk from the kiddie pool to the jacuzzi since they're in different areas. The jacuzzi is beside another big swimming pool. You can stay at either side to relax.

You can let your kids play at their small playground near the kiddie pool. Or channel the kid in you and ride the see-saw or swings.

Always a kid at heart
Spend your afternoon getting a full body massage. Make sure you have an appointment beforehand (or make one in the morning). You can also buy massage oil and body scrubs from the front desk.

Below their spa are their standard rooms
Perfect for couples!

Bond with your loved one in their big cabana. Lie around, tell stories or take a quick nap after your massage.

Retire for the night at their apartment-style rooms or villas.

I bet you'd wake up in the morning feeling relaxed and ready to start a new work week.

How to get there (by public transportation):
1. Ride a bus going to Batangas Tambo Exit in Buendia (Php124.00)
2. Get down at Tambo Exit (past Star toll). It's the first stop of the bus so you won't miss it.
3. Ride a jeepney going to Lemery. Ask the driver to drop you down Valentino. (Php10.00)
