This New, Pet-friendly Escape in Batulao is Open to All Ages & Bookings are Selling Out

The summer heat is already creeping in, and understandably, traveling families, couples, and solos are looking for getaways to cool down. There’s one in Batulao, Batangas that’s particularly in demand these days – so much so that after officially launching in January, bookings were sold out in a few weeks. Right now, rooms are already fully booked the whole month of March.

The is the Sanctuary Batulao. 

This refreshing Nasugbu escape lies on a cool spot where Tagaytay and Batangas converge, offering travelers not only easy access to the trendy food and leisure destinations in both locations but beautiful mountain views, too. And get this: It’s open to everyone (babies and seniors included) and does not require guests to present health and travel documents! Plus, for a minimal cleaning fee of P600, you can also bring your furry babies! 

Note: There’s a limit of 2 pets per villa. Pets are not allowed in the swimming pool.
