Camp Netanya Resort and Spa: Little Santorini in Batangas
Feel like going to Greece? Why don’t you stop by Camp Netanya in the Philippines first?
(Mabini, Philippines) – The Ancient Greek culture has always been one of the best of its kind in the world. A lot of people would agree that the Ancient Greek Civilization was one of the greatest and the most advanced during its time—it flourished in agriculture, in fields of knowledge like rhetoric and philosophy, in governance and democracy, and in architecture.
In terms of architecture, Greek is notable for its colossal pillars, its curvy buildings, its semi-sphere-shaped roofing, its white façade—and a lot more.
Knowing this would make you want to visit the cities of Greece now, and you will be pleased to know that you don’t have to go out of the country to see Greek’s architectural brilliance—there’s a small place here in the Philippines that resembles Greece from soil to sky, and it can be called the Little Santorini of the country: Camp Netanya Resort and Spa (check rates), in Anilao, Batangas.
Camp Netanya is literally a resort by the sea, which only adds more to that Greek elegance. With the view of the beautiful sea in front of you, and the lush vegetation behind you, Camp Netanya is truly a paradise on Earth. Its proximity from the city makes it tranquil and suitable for sheer relaxation and romantic getaways. You can bring your own food here, and you can even ask for an outdoor grill, if that’s what you prefer.
Camp Netanya’s 2-floor white buildings resembling Greek architectural design also appear to be a very big mansion, so the resort gives off a feeling of privacy and seclusion; there’s also just a total of 10 rooms, so there’s no need to worry about overcrowding or noisy neighbors. Facing the sea also means that you only get to breathe in the freshest air, aside from getting a healthy amount of sunshine.
Facilities and amenities include a car park, an outdoor pool that overlooks the sea (there’s also a kiddy pool), and non-motorized water sports. Wireless Internet connection is also available. Anilao is also one of the best diving spots in the country, so you may choose to temporarily explore Batangas’ diving spots while you have the time.
