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.
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.
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.

Contact details may change since they still don’t have an official website yet, so I suggest to send them a message through their Facebook page. They are almost always fully booked since their accommodations currently are not as many as the other resorts so book in advance. You can also send me a personal message through Facebook https://www.facebook.com/uned.algabre and I’ll try to provide their contact details, but again I can’t guarantee if it’s still the updated number/s.
