DIY Travel Guide to VALENTINO SPA & RESORT in Batangas



I know what is everyone's feeling this summer. Each of us want to get out of the heat and head to the nearest swimming getaway.  It seems but it is not an intention of mine but I have been featuring the best resorts in Batangas! First there was Aquaria Resort now with Water Park included, then the Manuel Uy beach resort in Calatagan and the Virgin Beach in San Juan.

Since I got so inspired to add my growing list of  best resorts and beaches in Batangas, I would like to present Valentino Spa & Resort, the Oriental pool palace in Batangas. It's another worth - visiting resort that's just a few hours from the metro. This travel guide is shared by Vaughn Kieffer Jocson‎ who just spent a night there with her girlfriend. Here's a guide to help you plan your vacation at Valentino Spa and Resort:  






Rates: 
Day Tour Time: 7 am - 5 pm 
Day Tour Entrance Fee
Weekdays:  Php 275
Weekends: Php 300 

Please make sure to register first than being a walk - in customer.  Your 6 hours (roundtrip) of travel time could end up wasted.You're required to rent a cabana or cottage. There are no bench or umbrella-style huts for those who are on a budget tight trip.

Small Cabana: Php 350
Medium Cabana: Php 550




Vaughn's tip: "I suggest to get the medium-sized cabana which is good for 3-4 persons. We're just 2 but we want a wider space for us and for our belongings. Also no pets allowed, 
corkage  is Php 25  for cooked food only, and food is fairly priced compared to Manila standard."


Amenities: 
Spa
Pool / Jacuzzi
Sauna
Function hall
Volleyball / Badminton
Children Playground
Restaurant 




How to get there?
From Gil Puyat Lrt Station, ride a bus (DLTB or Jam) going to Lemery Batangas. (Php 137 per head) then then get off at Cuenca. Don't forget to remind the driver to drop you off at  Valentino Spa Resort particularly in  Pinagtung-ulan. There's a signage so it wouldn't be hard to get lost. You just need to cross to the other side of the street.




Vaughn's tip: "If you have a lot of stuff with you, a tricycle for rent (Php 10 each) but it is just 5 minute-walk so if you have the strength to carry on, walking is the best option. I also suggest to leave Manila around 5:30 am so that you won't get stuck in the middle of traffic in Lipa then reach Cuenca around 7 am or 730 am."






Where to eat in Batangas

If you haven't taken your breakfast yet, there's a famous local lomi house in Batangas called "CORCOLON LOMI HOUSE". It is only one tricycle away from the Valentino Spa and Resort. One bowl of lomi costs Php 100 only.
