Travel Guide to Isola Vista Beach Resort in Batangas

Batangas - Tabangao - Lobo Rd, Batangas, Philippines
Isola vista beach resort batangas

"Isola Vista beach resort is one of the most affordable beacfront accommodations in Batangas that offers certified Instagrammable infinity swimming pools. In other luxurious resorts in the Philippines, you will need to pay a fortune for this. This is also a haven for those who wanna see lots of colorful fishes without needing to do island-hopping. All these you can experience for one ride away from SM Batangas."

I think my blog is destined to showcase every beautiful beach and beach resorts in Batangas. For some reasons, I keep on stumbling upon fellow travelers who are enamored to Batangas. Maybe because for 3-4 hours one can reach this province from Metro Manila and get a much-needed tan. 


Sometime ago, I met this girl who posted only four photos of a beachfront resort in Batangas in a very popular Facebook travel group in the Philippines. Without so much efforts, her four photos have gathered 4, 000+ likes and 1, 700+ comments! I knew I need to send her message if she is willing to share her photos and travel tips to Isola Vista Beach Resort. I am so glad, she said yes. Just recently, another fellow traveler Ms. Maurine Guardacasa posted 36 photos in the same group taken in Isola Vista adding very helpful tips so I asked if I can feature her and she said yes. 

Please see below a very short travel info about this resort. I'm planning to do a DIY trip in Isola Beach Resort so soon, I will be writing a thorough review and guide about it.  For now, let's read it from Yra Kirsten Durana's personal trip to this resort.

Isola Vista beach resort is truly a hidden paradise in Batangas City. It is made of hree Infinity pools, it is a beachfront resort  with a roof deck that offers a stunning beach view to all of its guests. If you're looking for a worthy resort to swim in Pagkilatan, Batangas - this is the place to be. Isola Vista Beach Resort name was derived from Italian words "isola" and "vista" which mean "view of an island".
