Kabayan Beach Resort – San Juan, Batangas

By | May 23, 2007

My family and I had a lot of fun at the Kabayan Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas last May 12 and 13.

In our opinion, the resort’s facilities, in terms of space and ambiance, are better suited for family and group outings than that of the Blue Coral Beach Resort, where we held our company outing, which is situated roughly half a kilometer away from Kabayan. Even though the rooms at Blue Coral were better looking than that of the simple yet cozy Kabayan rooms, the Blue Coral beach front was too cramped for our liking.

We definitely recommend Kabayan Beach Resort as one of the places to go to in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas.

Update:
This has turned out to be one of the most popular pages in my blog and a lot of readers have been asking about the rates, amenities and facilities of the resort.

The resort area itself is quite clean and well maintained. Facilities-wise, they have a playground, an aviary, a chapel, fresh water swimming pool, gardens, multi-purpose hall, restaurant, souvenir shops and a convenience store.

Some of the amenities or activities offered by the resort include beach volleyball, kayaking, cove hopping, snorkeling, hiking/trekking, billiards, and massage.

We particularly liked the fact that big trees supply decent shade from the scorching sun throughout most of the “inner” resort area, except when you’re at the beach area, of course.

The rooms/cottages are clean, well maintained and have air-conditioning and cable TV. And we also liked the fact that you could bring your own food and not be charged with corkage fees or other charges like what other resorts do. Some of the cottages even have their own kitchen, complete with cooking equipment and a refrigerator, and all you have to do is bring your own cooking ingredients.

If it’s a Sunday, and if you’re religious, a priest actually comes over to celebrate mass at the resort’s chapel. Which is quite good, since you won’t have to worry about hurrying back home to hear mass. (No excuses here, ha!)

And if you’re finicky when it comes to the type of sand the beach-front has, the downside is – don’t expect it to be the powdery-white, Boracay-type sand variety. Taking a stroll while barefoot can sometimes be a challenge.

All that being said, I can say that the overall beach vacation experience we had at the place was pleasurable and worth repeating.

    Hi Regina,

    You may check this link out: http://kabayanresort.com.ph/rooms.html, for the room/cottage rates.

    It lists the number of beds and persons allowed per room. Just click on the corresponding room name to find out the room layout and the cost.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    hello. Our family is planning to go somewhere in Batangas this summer. We were originally planning to go to Blue Coral but we’ve read bad reviews about it, the rooms not being not clean, bad service, and that the food (worth P950/head) did not match up to its price. I’ve visited Kabayan’s website, and one good thing I’ve found is that we can bring our own food there. But what about the cleanliness of the rooms, CRs, beach and pools? Service?

    Hi Meg,

    The rooms and resort grounds are well maintained, well, at least the room that we were in. And as for the public rest rooms, I don’t recall any bad smell coming out of these places unlike those of Blue Coral.

    And yes, you can bring and cook your own food. Plus the staff are courteous and friendly and the service is also great.

    Cheers!

    Pwedeng magdala ng pagkain dun. Pwede ka din mamili sa palengke at lutuin na lang sa cottage. Kumpleto sa gamit (ref, stove, utensils) yung ibang mga cottages dun.

    i am recommending kabayan beach resort esp for company outing. been there last year and our employees really had a great time including our expats big bosses. they even offered 2 rooms for free for the advance party/summer outing committee with free breakfast. during the outing day we had the place exclusive for us with all the cavanas and rooms for free!!!!.

    Thanks for the feedback! The beach area was okay the last time we went there, sayang…

    My guess is the reason why the beach was littered with debris was because of the string of typhoons and heavy rains that recently hit the country.

    Perhaps the resort owners would take note of this and take some sort of corrective action.

    Cheers!
