If you are from the Philippines and you want to experience Maldives but you cannot afford to travel there, Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort is the answer!

Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort is located in the Calatagan peninsula between the Philippines Sea and Balayan Bay in the province of Batangas.

The sand may not be white and fine compared to Boracay’s or Calaguas‘ but you will surely enjoy the beauty of nature at Stilts beach resort.

The cottage is spacious as it can accommodate up to 15 people. There are no stove or microwave oven in the cottage to cook or re-heat your food. There are no televisions and wifi, and this might be a nightmare for those ‘technology-dependent’ but this is actually a good time for bonding. Talk to each other. Play cards and/or drink!

From your cottage, you have an access to the beach. For your safety, better check if it is high or low tide.


It is highly recommended that you come with your family or friends because every angle of the place is picture perfect especially during sunset!

Since it is not allowed to swim in the beach in the evening, the resort has a pool which is open for a night swim. 

Night Swimming

For your food during your stay, a breakfast buffet is available at the pavilion and you can order your lunch or dinner from the restaurant. They will even deliver your food at your cottage. You will get a taste of the usual ‘tosilog’ (tocino-sinangag-itlog) or ‘tapsilog’ (tapa-sinangag-itlog).


How to get to Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort

By Private Vehicle

This is good for long-drive lovers because you will pass through Tagaytay, another tourist destination. There is approximately 2 kilometers of rough road from the national highway before you reach the resort. Don’t worry, it is safe for small and big vehicles alike. You can use Waze or Google maps for navigation. 

By Bus

From Pasay (near MRT-EDSA Taft Station), ride a bus going to Calatagan. Buses usually depart from 4:00 AM to 4:30 PM. You can then ask the conductor to assist you to drop you off near Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort and then take a tricycle ride to bring you inside the resort.
