5 Reasons Why You Should Spend A Weekend At Punta Verde Resort in Lobo, Batangas

Image may contain: outdoor
Located in the far south of Batangas, Punta Verde is a hidden gem you must see and experience!

So last weekend, me and my blogger "lodi" friends visited this resort in Lobo, Batangas. Punta Verde is a perfect refresh for those who are hectic and exhausted with the life in the metro. Located at the edge of a seaside cliff, you can feel the air and the vibe that will definitely want you stay for long in this place. Thanks to Riza for inviting me 'cause I really had a great time and a quick relaxation here.



But why we visited this resort faraway from the metro? Imagine, you have to travel 4-5 hours from Metro Manila just to get here! Good thing, we have kuya Rex and his Toyota Grandia for this trip. It was less hassle for us to travel that long. :)


So is it really "worth the trip" as their tagline says? Lets see! Here are the five reasons why you should go and spend a weekend at Punta Verde Resort:


1. THE VIEW

Overlooking the beach from the resort.
Secluded from the town, this resort is blessed with breathtaking views from different angles. Strategically located on the ridge of a mountain, it will give a beautiful overlooking view of the seas of the Verde Island passage.

I would spend my life with this kind of view.
Beside, you can also enjoy a relaxing view of their infinity pool from left to right.

I'm pretty sure that you will also enjoy these views when you get here, too! :)


2. THE FUN

With the amenities that Punta Verde has, you can enjoy from having a dip in their infinity pool, do water activities or visit a nearby natural spring.

I'm confident that you will have fun here, too! :)

3. THE NATURE

This place is indeed blessed with nature. All the villas and lodges are connected with a cobblestone walkway and wherever you look around the place? It's all covered with green leaves and brown woods.


We also noticed that although this resort is covered with trees, you won't feel any mosquitoes biting you. Yup! Not at once. So this place is also kids-friendly. In fact, most of the guests we saw during our stay are families with children. It's really a perfect getaway bond with your family.

Beach down the cliff where the main resort is located at.
Just a few stairs away, you will witness this blue and pristine waters of the seas. Though, we didn't see white sand, this beach is picturesque and good for some photo-ops. :)

Here are some of mine. :D
If you are a nature lover or a beach lover, well, this place is absolutely for you.

4. THE RELAXATION

Relaxation - YES! That's what I really love in this place. From cozy rooms, to soothing veranda, refreshing air, there's nothing you can wish for. Plus good food, of course to complete the experience! :D

I also find this pool relaxing in a way that I can stare at the horizon of the seas (just me and the sea ang peg). hahaha seriously, it was peaceful.

Free breakfast at 8! :)

FOOD! Upon arrival, we already asked for the menu and we're a bit sad because we heard that the Sinampalokang Manok here is really good and it wasn't on the menu for the dinner. Riza, (and unanimously, I guess) chose this bowl of "Sinigang na Isda". Yup, that's how they call it.

Sinigang Na Isda
Well, for me it was good. The sourness of sinigang was there. It's just like the regular sinigang that has fish instead of pork. That's it!

Oh, did I already mention that their brewed coffee is for free? Yeah! :)

If you are looking for a place to relax, detox from the stressful life in the city, then this is the place to be! Stay at least for a weekend. :)

5. THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE

For me, my weekend spent here was fun, relaxing and complete! There's no other place you can visit with total package of those things I know you are looking for a vacation.

No WiFi. No mobile network reception. A complete disconnect from the world. Haha

SIDETRIP

Faro de Punta de Malabrigo is one of the 24 lighthouses erected in the Philippines during the course of the Spanish Colonial period.



The century old lighthouse can be spotted at the top of a cliff in the town of Lobo, Batangas. It is overlooking Verde Island and Mindoro from afar. By private car it is around three and half hours drive to get to see the historical landmark.
