Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar, Bataan: The Resort

The interesting thing about Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar in Bataan is that it’s not just another photogenic historical place you could tour around in; it is actually a resort.

We stayed there overnight, which is just enough, really, especially since we visited during the rainy season. We got the package from Metrodeal at P3,238.00 for two. This was published as having 50% discount, but doing my own computations based on their rates now, the discount is only at around 40% – inclusive of the Studio Deluxe Room and entrance fee for 2. Still, that’s a lot of savings.

If you’re planning to go, you can check out their promo rates – they have packages for couples, groups, or even meetings.

This is the building in which we stayed.

The room is actually some kinda modern, some kinda antique. It doesn’t smell old at all, and it’s pretty cozy.

Not shown in my photos are the curtains surrounding the bed (imagine four poster bed). It’s actually supposed to be romantic and queen-like, except that I’m a coward and it gave me goosebumps trying to sleep at night.

Lots of space to move around in for a room for 2. Thinking about it now, and realizing that the deal we got is a really, really good deal.

The bathroom was spacious as well. Passed my standards.

And there’s a tub!

Right outside of the room there are terraces. This is the view from up our room in the second floor. The first photo in this post is also taken from the terrace.

The “batis-inspired” pool is really neat. You wouldn’t imagine having this amidst all the antique-ness.

Since we went in June and I guess because it was rainy and gloomy, this was all we did save for the tour. But if you look at their site, apparently there are other recreational activities that could be done in the resort. To name a few, there are water sports facilities, you can swim in the beach, there’s a spa, a game room – the usual resort stuff.

They tried to make it look really natural.

This is how the beach looks like the time we went. The water would probably be clearer in the summer – it’s a season thing. Also, I didn’t see anyone swimming or doing water sports anywhere.

An overnight stay in Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar is just about enough. When you get there, you can rest a bit, go around and take photos of the place – it’s really nice to take pictures around. You can also take a dip in the pool – it is kid-friendly (meaning there are shallow parts). Take the afternoon heritage tour; they will give out hats as it is a walking tour. If you have grandma and grandpa with you, you can rent out a golf cart so they can join. It is incredibly hot because you will be walking under the sun, so wear something comfy.

Overall, I don’t think that this is a resort where you should stay for a long time – there aren’t a lot of things to do. But this is definitely a place you have to go to at least once. It’s beautiful! This is the only resort I know in the Philippines that gives this experience. You know, the I-can’t-sleep-because-I-feel-my-dead-ancestors-are-watching kind of experience?
