Romantic Get-away Suggestion

My younger brother enjoys out of town trips with his girlfriend and though he is fully aware that I’ve never had any romance in my life and that I prefer remote destinations with not a lot of amenities, he never fails to bug me for suggestions where they can go.

He even asked me to browse a certain resort once. It’s called Acuatico and is located in San Juan, Batangas. I’ve been here before. It’s the jump-off to Mt. Daguldol, a popular hiking destination here in the Philippines. The base of the mountain is near several resorts. The water is clean and very blue way back in 2006. I haven’t returned here since so I can’t vouch on its quality now.

I found the website of Acuatico and was amazed by the pictures I saw of its infinity pool. It looks really romantic and I wouldn’t mind spending days here – if it’s free. The price range of the accommodations here is around 5,000 to 21,000 pesos depending on the number of heads and the type of room. That’s enough to cause a heart attack for a backpacker like me.

Here’s some information, in case you want to check it out.
