Canyon Cove Resort: A Paradise Beach in Nasugbu, Batangas

Canyon Cove Resort

Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa – Summer has just started and most of us instantly yearning for the beach where we could finally enjoy and relax away from the boring things we were doing every day. Yes, I mean office work! hahaha. You can definitely enjoy your family outing, team building or maybe your friends yearly bonding in this resort. This is another paradise beach located near Metro Manila.

Canyon Cove Resort

We were searching for a resort that can accommodate a large group and we can comfortably sleep as there are infants and babies with us. The first choice was the Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort but unfortunately, it’s already fully booked. So we ended up to Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa, and it didn’t disappoint us. This beautiful beach resort is located in Nasugbu, Batangas. Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa has a lot to offer aside from its white-sand shore and the clear water that surround the cove. It offers a lot of fun activities and high-end facilities that make it to the top choice of the best resort where you can spend your ultimate summer vacation.

THE BEACH AND THE SWIMMING POOL

Looking for a beach and a pool in one place? I think Canyon Cove Beach Resort is what you’re looking for! The beach was really nice. Actually, the water is clean and clear and the temperature was perfect. There was a floating water park but it was expensive. The sand is very comfortable to walk on but it can be very hot in the afternoon.

The next day, the beach was covered with tons of seaweeds due to the southwest monsoon that makes us feel uncomfortable to swim. The clear waters turned into a green like a garden of seagrass. Luckily, there’s a lot of resort staff that clean the beach area. It is very well-maintained.

If you don’t want to swim in the beach, you have another option. Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa has two swimming pool.  The pool area is big and it has a lot of cottages and it was surrounded by hotels and apartments from the aerial view. The water in the pool is also clean despite being crowded. The view of the beach from the pool area was really Instagrammable and picturesque. There is also a small playground near the swimming pool area for the kids.

OUR ROOM

We availed the unit from the old apartment type building located near the entrance. I think this is not being commercialized since I cannot find it anywhere on the internet. We got the unit from my brother’s friend so we got a discount from 15 thousand pesos 12 thousand pesos.

Watch the video below to see our room.

The upper part of the resort is where our room was located. Some of the buildings are not yet finished and looks like the developer doesn’t want to finish it anymore while some of them seemed like already abandoned. The room from this old apartment is much bigger and cozy than the rooms at the new hotel near the beach front.

The unit is fully air-conditioned from the bedroom up to the living room. It has two bedroom where each of them has its own bathroom. The bathroom is clean, well-maintained and it also has a bathtub. The only problem is the toilet bowl is clogged. Refrigerator, cable TV, and other necessary appliances are all free of use. The view of the beach can be seen from our unit’s balcony which is a perfect place for relaxation.

ACTIVITIES AND RATES

Canyon Cove Beach Resort wouldn’t be complete if you don’t experience their water activities. They offer a different kind of water activities such as flyboard, jetrovator, snorkeling, and banana boat ride to name a few. This resort is absolutely jam-packed with all the things that you might be looking for in your fabulous summer vacation. From the amenities to the activities they’re offering, it’s totally worth it.  However, one thing I noticed at Canyon Cove Beach Resort is their activities rate are more pricey compared to other resort that we’ve been to. For example, their Island hopping will cost you PHP 2,100 per person while in other resort it will only range around PHP 500-800 per person. So I wondered why it cost too much? What type of Island do we visit? Do they have extra activities during Island hopping? Or it includes lunch/dinner?

Canyon Cove Resort

Anyway, it’s up to you if you want to try one their activities. I think all the activities are all worth a try even though it’s pricey.

CONCLUSION

My final verdict, it was fun and we had a great and memorable experience at Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa. No matter what the season, beachgoers can relax on the sunny, peaceful shores of Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa. The only thing that disappointed me was their water activities seemed like overpriced. Nevertheless, it is a good place to consider if you’re looking for a beach and a pool where you can also stay overnight. The best for families with kids. However, As I read the other reviews, the customer service needs to improve in this resort. Overall it was good and worth a visit.
