Located in Puerto Galera, Infinity Resort and Spa is the vacation of your dreams this Holy Week 2022. With a 2-hectare property, this place offers endless opportunities for you to explore. What are those, you may ask?
They have a variety of accommodations, ranging from deluxe rooms, to suites and to luxurious villas. They also have a restaurant, a pool bar, and, for all the love birds out there, offer an exclusive private dining experience by the beach.
Hang tight as we’re not yet done! They have a 300 sqm spa area, called Malasimbo Spa, overlooking Mt Malasimbo of Oriental Mindoro. It features (the first and only) fish spa in Puerto Galera, sauna treatment rooms, jacuzzi, bathtubs, shower rooms, foot therapy, and a mani-pedi room. All products used are 100% natural, with each treatment providing a therapeutic benefit.
If you’re keen to go diving, there are numerous dive sites around the resort too. With all the amenities and facilities mentioned above, they also have a game room, an entertainment room (karaoke, anyone?), and a gym.

If you prefer a destination nearer to the metro, Kapusod is the one for you. It is a unique, homey, and eco-friendly accommodation located in Batangas.
There’s not much you can do here, though, as the place only offers a natural pool (or water garden as they call it) and a tiny restaurant that serves Filipino food like tawilis, adobong baboy, and kinilaw na ampalaya. They also do not accept huge groups to keep the place clean.
However, if your primary goal this Holy Week 2022 is to reflect, meditate, or be one with yourself (and nature!), this is your safe space. Kapusod has a treehouse, an earth dome, and three open huts, plus a majestic view of the Taal Lake.
5. Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort
