Travel: Experience Canyon Cove at Nasugbu, Batangas

This post might be a little overdue because it's been 8 months since we traveled to Nasugbu and went to Canyon Cove for the first time. It was crazy then because the morning of our wedding, we had an emergency getaway to Baguio with my husband's relatives. At first, I told Jaycee not to agree in joining the Baguio group because it's not included in our budget plan and we just got married on Dec 5 and they want us to leave 5am of Dec 6. We barely had sleep! The feeling was intense tiredness that I just want to lay down on bed all day after our big event! Imagine all the crazy stress during the last few days of the wedding and when you just want to rest all day after it happened, here's one big stress-buster! However, we still decided to join because 1) his relatives will be leaving on the 7th to go back to Leyte, and 2) because I need to adjust to my married life now. 


Anyway, going back to the deal I secured on Canyon Cove. I went through the Metrodeal website and they had an offer at 57% off. It was originally priced at P6999 and it's only for P2999 for 4 persons, 2 adults and 2 kids. We both agree to get it to use it for our honeymoon. We only had a week of work leave for the wedding and we need to make the most out of it. So our schedule happened like this:

December 5 - WEDDING DAY
December 6-7 - Baguio
December 8-9 - CANYON COVE 
December 11 - Jaycee's back to work
December 14 - I'm back to work 

We slept and rested on the 10th and on the 12 and 13, I cleaned the whole house and transferred my things in my new home. Crazy yet fun! 

Let's travel back time last Dec 8. Since we came all the way from Pampanga, we left home at 8am and arrived in Batangas at around 2pm. It's crazy travelling in Manila nowadays. It's been so long since I went to the Metro and once the car or bus set foot around Manila, time is already wasted. 

Bus from Pampanga to Avenida - P102 each
LRT from Avenida - Gil Puyat - P20 each
Bus from Gil Puyat to Nasugbu, Batangas town proper - P155 each
Tricycle from Nasugbu Town Proper - Canyon Cove - P80 for one way

Check-in time at Canyon Cove is 3pm and check-out time is 12 noon the next day. Even if we're a little early, they already accommodated us and let us in. They only have few guests during that time so I think they weren't totally strict regarding the check-in time. 

I was surprised when they told me that I have to deposit P2k before checking in. I don't know why they had to do that. That regulation isn't included with the terms written on their website and even at the Metrodeal site. I know that there's a surcharge of P2k if the date of the reservation becomes a holiday, it will be applied but as far as I know, there's no holiday then even in Batangas. Though the P2k will be refunded upon checking out. Good thing we have money then or else they won't let us in! I hope they will update it so as not to confuse their other guests!




While we were waiting for everything to be processed, we waited at the lobby. Their lobby was spacious and they have free wifi there. Their wifi didn't reach the rooms so we had to go down whenever we want to connect on social media.





When we arrived in our room, I decided to take some shots of the room first. We were just so tired and lazy and all we wanted was to rest but for the sake of blogging, I need to do it! Haha. That's why you will notice that Jaycee was just resting in bed in one of the photos. 











There's also this picturesque view in our room that will take your breath away! It's my favorite part of the room, actually! Good thing we had a welcoming weather when we arrived there.






We're a little hungry when we arrived so we decided to eat some snack first before touring the place and of course before swimming.  They are partnered with Max's Restaurant so expect Max's pricing with a little additional. For me, I think the food was expensive. 




After eating, we toured around the place. We decided to swim later in the evening around 5pm. 













They also have a lot of water sports activities for groups and families. We skipped venturing into those activities because we think it's a little expensive and I honestly just can't cope with everything's that's happening after our wedding. All I want to do during those times is to swim and rest. Now I regret not doing it! Hopefully, I'll have the moolah and energy soon to do those kind of things. 






So after touring and swimming, we decided to have our dinner. When we got back in our room, this is the view that welcomed us. Wonderful sunset in our porch. How I wish I can see a sight like this everyday of my life. 



Overall, we had a great time with our Canyon Cove experience. It might be a little expensive with the trip and all but it's still worth visiting the place. I hope we can have more travel sesh especially with the firstborn coming on the way. 

More travels soon! Ciao!

    1. I really think I had a great deal. The downside is, I was just so tired that time. Our travel time was longer than our stay at the resort. Haha.

  2. I think you did a great thing by going on the trip. The pool and the views over the sea look lovely and you got a chance to actually relax in the sun. A mini honeymoon :)

  3. Canyon Cove looks like a very luxurious resort. Strangely, I haven't heard of it before. For something that looks this good, it should be more famous!

  7. Most of the hotels and resorts that we've visited, there is really a deposit. There is a hotel pa nga na mas malaki yung deposit kaysa sa hotel rate. #nakakaloka

    1. So this is already a norm for most hotels? They should have disclosed it to the customers, right? Thinking you don't have to pay for anything then suddenly you will be required to deposit is somehow vague for me. They should put it in their regulations too!

  9. First of all, congratulations! May you always find bliss in your marriage and God bless you both! :)

    Second, good job on sucking it up and still going to the Baguio trip with your husband's family, even if you're dead tired, that's called sacrifice and you'll make many more for your husband and his family, but that's alright, if you married into a wonderful family, it's worth it. :)

    Third, wow, 50% off on hotel stay, that is amazing! I definitely have Nasugbu, Batangas as a vacation place on my bucket list of places to go to. :)

    1. Downside though is that they didn't wrote the 2k deposit. The rest is okay.

  11. This gives me more reasons to not unsubscribe and continue with my Metrodeal subscription. I havent checked any of their deals yet as I always find myself busy with my baby or household chores or would rather sleep than check mail. You got a pretty great deal and it seems you had an awesome stay there.

  16. I was there couple of years or three years ago. I remember the place being nice. If there is anything I didn't like, it was that the food I thought were expensive. Other than that, for the price, so yes, the rooms feel older than they really are, but overall a great place to stay at.

    1. True! I also think that the food was expensive. Our snack alone is worth 300 and our dinner was around 600. They charged additional 10% service fee pa! Kaloka!

  23. Not bad for a deal. Well, as for the deposit, that sure is quite confusing most especially for those who aren't aware. Much worse for those who have no extra funds with them. But nonetheless, at least you have noted it here. So those who will read your post will be aware about it. :)

    1. It's real I tell you! Haha. Since they have water activities and if you want to try those (with additional payment) then I can recommend staying there for 2 days. We booked for 1 night and 2 days there but we left really early the next day because we need to go home in the North and travel time is our enemy. Our travel time was longer than our stay at the resort.
