Decompress from life’s pressures in the healing tranquility of an environment that truly feels “away from it all.” If you have ever spent time at a tropical plantation, you know what we mean. If not, come and discover a refreshingly different Flavor of Life. Whether you’re traveling for a family vacation or romantic getaway, for business or pleasure, this is far and away your best choice in the Philippines.

For what you pay here it’s not even worth it. We stayed for 6 nights which dragged on forever. Even trying to get out of this place wasn’t even worth the travel either. For what you pay here you’d think that you could do a lot of things. But no we were very restricted. Can’t

Yes as the others replied, perhaps you were a day visitor and not a guest staying, think they would impose a charge in that case, all guests have cards to redeem freedom of towels.

Thank you for your inquiry. Our beachfront is 88 meters long and admittedly, smaller than those of other resorts our size. Conscious that we are beach-challenged, we built extensive internal lagoons plus four freshwater pools of varying designs for our guests to enjoy. Plantation Bay is also a man-made environment, and if you prefer a natural beach, a different resort would be ideal. On the other hand, at Plantation Bay, you'll never have to worry about riptides, sea urchins, jellyfish, and the other usual annoyances of open water.

"Choose a lagoon view room"
"choose a diff hotel terrible expierence"
"get a villa, well worth it"
"Waters edge room is the best"
"If you don't care about direct access to the pools, then get a 2nd floor unit to avoid the terrible noise."
