Camp Netanya: A Slice of Santorini in the South

11925618_10206620878873937_1823057279_nWho would have thought that in only about two to three hours travel from Manila, you’d be transported immediately to that sunny Mediterranean isle of Santorini in Greece!

That cinematic moment..the feels!. 🙂 🙂

But yes, a white jewel glistening under a tropical sun exists just south of Manila in the popular diving site of Anilao. The whitewashed walls and cobalt blue domes of Camp Netanya resort echoes that of a Greek island resort simplicity, that would make one feel like singin’ Mamma Mia!… if ever you knew that movie of course hehe.

That sweeping pristine view of the sapphire sea and the white jewel of the South.

Situated on a sloping hill facing a sapphire blue sea, this architectural beauty ( by the renowned architect Palafox) is undoubtedly perhaps the most picturesque resort I’ve ever been to date in Luzon. No wonder we spent a lot of our time taking pictures from morning till sunset.

An escape to tranquility 🙂

Moment ko to ok haha! Ahh the scorching sun and the breeze ( thank you sunblock) 🙂

I only learned of Camp Netanya through a friend who went there after gushing through his awesome photos. They currently don’t have a website, but they can be contacted through their Facebook page, or the resort manager. We were informed that this was actually a private resort which discreetly opened to the public. But due to only a number of accommodations, the place isn’t as crowded as most resorts in the area, which is suitable for those looking for a truly comfortable and relaxing getaway.

Picturesque! The setting sun and the foamy waves at the beach area. Lots of rocks though, since Anilao is actually famous as a snorkelling and scuba diving site 🙂

The Blue lagoon..actually the Infinity pool haha! Just be careful ’cause after the floaters that separate the 5 feet area it immediately drops to 12 (or 10?) feet!

The highlight of the infinity pool is an unobstructed view of the beautiful sunset right smack in the middle of the ocean! So perfect for relaxation and smoothies at the pool while watching the vermilion skies give way to gazillions of sparkling stars.

Early morning madness! Braving the rooftop not minding my fear of heights just to get that scene from a movie that I can’t even remember the title haha!
