Travel: Stilts Resort, Calatagan Batangas
Last March, I had my first 2016 summer outing with my family at Stilts Resort in Calatagan Batangas. At first, I am so careful looking for a resort for my family summer outing. My dad is so 'maarte' in terms of place. He's not really into a crowded place. He likes quiet, peaceful and very greeny place. So, tadaaaaaa! Thanks to my friend who recommended Stilts Resort - a place that is good for family and couple to have a get together.
HOW TO GET TO STILTS RESORT FROM MANILA:
1. Get to bus station in EDSA-Taft, Pasay or in AliMall Cubao going to Calatagan, Batangas.
2. From Calatagan Bus Terminal (town proper), take a tricycle going to Stilts Resort.
** if you're going to Stilts via car, you can visit their website to check the location road map.

Stilts Resort has its 24 hectares of very tranquil, alluring and a friendly mother earth ambiance. They have three stations: 1) Serenity Beach
2) Harmony Beach
3) Destiny Beach.
We stayed in Harmony Beach for a day tour only since my parents have their business operation the next day (I know..., they love to work..hihihi). I rented open hut and requested to have it near a tree and in front of beach. My request is granted - so perfect! The open hut that I got is also near the Aqua Sport station, Resto Bar and swimming pool. I know, it's awesome! They knew what customer wants.
There's an incident that we've waited for almost two (2) hours to have our complimentary drinks and I've waited for almost 45 minutes for the waiter to tell him my order. But it's okay, they served it good and yummy and good thing we brought our own food for lunch.
Staff are very approachable - being hospitable is there. They helped us put our things from our car going to the open hut and helped us also to put back our things to the car after the checked out.

We had a Banca Aqua Sport for an hour. The staff dropped and picked us in Destiny Beach after the water activity. My family enjoyed it and the two staff who accompanied us took good care of my family. The two (2) staff keep on eyes on my siblings while they are splashing around the ocean. Seeee, they know how to take good care of their customer. I had a good deal also with them - free entrance fee for our driver and housemaid and free corkage fee for the food we brought (looks like they are charging for corkage fee if it is a heavy meal only) *wink*.

I am wholly in love with this so relaxing and alluring resort. Perfect to stay and relax. A very inspirational resort I'd visited - all area has an inspirational quotes written in a very art-y wood. Lots of flowers and trees that will swing you in good mood. In fact, this resort is one of my option for my wedding reception. *wink* #kiligmuch
