Eager to escape from the daily grind, but only have a few days to spare? Instead of flying out to distant destinations, we suggest you go on a road trip with friends instead! Not only is a road trip easier to plan, it's also an affordable way to unwind during the summer weekends.
Before the June rains start pouring, we recommend you round up your buddies and head to the world-class Camayan Beach Resort and Hotel in Subic Bay.
When choosing your weekend crash pad, take your pick from Camayan Beach Resort and Hotel's 44 Superior rooms (P4,500+) and 38 Deluxe Rooms (P5,000+)--each air-conditioned and furnished with two queen-sized beds--and three spacious, luxurious Suites (P7,500-P10,000+) for those extra bongga outings. The rooms' architecture allows you to bask in the beauty of your natural surroundings. Take in the breathtaking view of the tropical forest, watch incredible sunsets, and catch the cool ocean breeze, all without leaving your room!
Once you get settled, there are tons of fun activities for you to choose from, such as diving among the coral reefs and shipwrecks of Subic Bay, kayaking, snorkeling, boating, biking, and horseback riding. Animal lovers can even visit the dolphins and sea lions housed at the nearby Ocean Adventure. And after a long and tiring day with your pals, you can all unwind by trying out the relaxing massages.
During meal times, dine at the open-air Reef Restaurant, which serves a delicious mix of international cuisine. For post-dinner drinks, make a beeline for The Sand Bar and get buzzed on their specially designed cocktails.
