Stilts: Maldives-Inspired Resort in Batangas 0

Maldives-Inspired Resort in Batangas  Stilts Beach Resort

Stilts Beach Resort is just about 3 hours away from Manila. It is located in Calatagan- Matabungkay  Road, Calatagan, Batangas. You can reach the resort by private car. It is famous for its floating cottages built with stilts over the water, hence it was dubbed the Maldives-inspired resort in Batangas.

It is a sprawling 24 hectare resort with 3 beaches to choose from:  Destiny, Harmony and Serenity. We have been here a couple of times with family and with friends, peak season and off peak season. We keep coming back here not only because the place is beautiful and relaxing but also because the staff  and service are great!

Not many are aware that Stilts offer day tours for a reasonable price. Here is a guide on what you can do for a day at Stilts.

Upon arrival, the guard at the entrance will ask your name to check if you have reservation.  As you drive along inside the resort, you will be greeted by rows of pretty flowers and trees. You will also pass by their greenhouses of organic vegetables and herbs.  Proceed to the Reception Office to fill out forms.  They have a service van that can bring you and your things to your cottage or cabanas.  Vehicles are not allowed in the beach areas.

We prefer to stay and chill in Harmony Beach and enjoy the view here.  They have picnic tables, daybeds, and cottages. There is a beach volleyball area and a shop for water activities.

The restaurant, Sweet Spot, is nearby too. We find it comfortable that  we can order from the restaurant and have them set our meal in one of the picnic tables in this beach. The restaurant staff were accommodating and the food was delicious. They can also cook and grill for you with a fee. Bringing of food is allowed but corresponding corkage applies.

Sweet Spot is an open air restaurant and has a beautiful view of the sea. Chairs and tables from the restaurant spill into the view deck which is a perfect spot for Instagram worthy photos of the floating cottages.

The pool is just beside Sweet Spot and has two levels. Upper level is for kids while lower level is for adults. We like staying under the flowing water of the pool from the upper level. When the heat in the beach becomes unbearable, we go to swim in the pool.

For Day Tours,  entrance during  Peak Season is 385 Php per head. Peak season is March-June, December and Holidays. Off peak rate is 350 Php per head.

Entrance fee is inclusive of pool use and access to the beaches.
