Beating The Heat At Island Waters Resort – Under The Glaring Sun Of Morong, Bataan

We're greeted by that very inviting sea!

A couple of weeks ago, my travel buddies and I went to a very much recommended place in Morong, Bataan. The travel time takes about 3 hours via Victory Liner Bus to Olongapo City in Zambales. From Olongapo, there’s a mini-bus that took us to Morong, Bataan.

The resort's infinity pool - bluer that blue! haha

This is simply the rightΒ  place for us to linger under the scorching heat of the sun this summer. It’s a newly constructed vacation getaway along the beachfront of Morong. The place boast ofΒ  “the only” infinity pool in the shoreline of beach houses and resorts. It is owned by a lovely and uber-accomodating couple who recently purchased the place and named it Island Waters Resort. It has a modern Western architecture infused with Asian designs.

You could stay at their "Nipa Huts" in various sizes good for two to a large group :)

The fun doesn’t stop at their infinity pool. We sang our hearts out at their karaoke and drank at the bar. (I missed taking some pictures here -we may have been too drunk to take some haha) You could also play Beach Volleyball (atleast we tried but we ended up laughing our arse off because no one seemed to know how to play the game! lol), we also rented a boat to take us to the newly built Pawikan Conservation Sanctuary. It’s a nice program of the town people which protects the Pawikan that lay their eggs in the shore of Morong.

Look! Baby Turtles!!!

We also did a little snorkeling. I personally do not know how to swim so it was a little nerve-wracking but it was all good since we’re given life vest to save me (us) from drowning haha.

We're so damn happy that time and it shows on our faces! Haha

At the conclusion of the three days of swimming, singing, snorkeling, soul-searching haha, laughing and eating – I guess the best thing about this trip is spending it with a great bunch of people and savoring every moment of it. Man’ this is life!

We'd definitely go back! :)

We’d definitely go back! πŸ™‚

  8. Hey guys! We are planning to visit this resort this weekend. We’ll be commuting from Manila to Bataan. Though, I really have NO IDEA how to get here. 😦 Can anyone shed some answers, please? πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    • Hi Djae!
      It’s very easy. Much like what we did, we simply walked in at Victory Liner in Cubao and book at trip for Olongapo Cicty. From Gapo, there’s a mini-bus that will take you to Morong πŸ™‚ From Morong, ask the tricycle driver/s to take you to the resort, tricy cost us about P50. Enjoy your weekend!

  9. any updates in this resort please? thank you.

    • Hi Beth!
      I tried to upload some update via their FB page which you can try to check but since I’ve been there last at around mid-2013 I cannot say for certain what the exact changes were. The pictures posted online were amazing though so I reckon that it’s way,way better now in terms of the overall structure of the place πŸ™‚

      Cheers!
