Enjoy the summer heat with AQUARIA

My adventure to AQUARIA in Playa Calatagan was another extra-ordinary experience to welcome the SUMMER season.

Aquaria is the premier leisure and entertainment destination of the Playa Calatagan Leisure Tourism Estate. The newest world-class beach resort in Playa Calatagan, Batangas is designed to provide Nautilus Condominium residents and guests an enjoyable, one of a kind and memorable resort experience. Don't worry Aquaria Resort is open for walk-in visitors and guests.

Going to the resort is about 2.5 – 3 hour drive from manila (it depends on traffic jam and season) via South Expressway through Tagaytay to Calatagan, Batangas.

I was fortunate to be invited by Aquaria to experience their resort on what they can offer for beach and resort lovers like me and to all hard working individuals who want a beautiful place that can spend quality time with their love ones.

It was a beautiful Thursday morning when we headed to Aquaria. My blogger friends and I arrived in the resort past 10am. We were greeted with an elegant welcome center.  The resort’s staff are very hospitable. They gave us some refreshing drinks to enjoy and be seated on artistic-designed chairs. 

Honestly, I thought Aquaria is just like other beach resorts in Playa but it’s NOT. You will not only enjoy the  natural beauty of the sea,  you will definitely love their amenities and features include bath houses, a kiddie pool, cove pools, wooden cabanas, cove pool cabanas, a sunken pool bar and a three-storey giant pool.

The water in the swimming pool is clear and clean. The chlorine content level is balance and I don’t smell anything on the water. It’s very pure and very smooth to skin.

All the kids out there will definitely enjoy the 3- feet kiddie pool where water squirts from the floor and concrete mushroom. 

If you’re tired in swimming, go to the sun loungers and lie down on their cozy chairs with jumbo umbrellas while sipping your fresh fruit drinks. Or you can go to Aquaria’s dining pavilion called “The Sands” which serves sumptuous Filipino cuisines and cocktails and other beverages. I love all the seafood dishes especially the grilled sugpo. It's "RAPSA" (delicious)

After we enjoyed the fun in the swimming pools, we headed to the sea. It’s 20 to 30 meters away from the pools. Ahhhhh...that's the only word that came out from my mouth. Everytime I'm in front of the sea, I feel  so energetic. All my stress inside my body suddenly wipe out. I'm such a workaholic and busy person and I  deserve to be relaxed on this beautiful place.

The water in the beach resort is clear and clean. It has intense turquoise color which perfect for photography.  It has also pure and white sand.

The resort offers a whole range of water sport activities jet-skiing, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, stand-up paddle board surfing (SUP), boating and others. You can also play other beach activities like volleyball, soccer and Frisbee games.

Overnight accommodation is not available as of the moment as the Nautilus Condominium which will serve as the hotel for the whole development is still on it's pre-selling stage and will be operational by next year. Beach Campsite is one alternative for those who prefer to spend a night or two and watch the famous golden sunset by the beach. Overnight Camping thou has an additional fee on top of the General Admission fee.

What I'm wearing: shirt from Chief clothing, short from Bizaare, shades and necklace from Sm Accessories

I'm so happy on this adventure, I was able to learn properly Wind Surfing. At first, I'm having a hard time to stand on the surfing board and pulling up the vinta. I understand why... not listening to my instructor.. hehehe.  I'm on hurry to learn and  I thought it's easy for me...but it's not....One of the easiest way to learn this kind of sport is to listen carefully and attentively with your instructor and it really works to me.

Aquaria is the best getaway destination for family, friends and couple who want to escape from the busy metro. This is the best place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and natural environment with quiet luxury.

Thanks Aquaria for a wonderful experience. Looking forward for the accommodations. This unforgetable experience is a great start for my upcoming adventures this SUMMER 2013.
