Infinity Resort in Puerto Galera
I considered going to the mountain side, but my heart was really pounding to hit the beach. My skin is craving to feel the sun and the sea again. Just 3 days after, I satisfied my craving and found myself back in Puerto Galera.
it's so refreshing to see the clear sky and the blue water again
Since it's the rainy season, I'm surprised to see Puerto Galera this empty. I like it. Anyway, since I've been going to Puerto Galera since 2006 I think, White Beach is now never an option for me. I always consider going to Tamaraw, Sabang, or Talipanan areas for lesser crowd. But since there's this new and breathtaking new resort in Talipanan, then I already made a decision.
the beachfront Infinity Resort in Talipanan
There are direct boat trips from Batangas pier to Talipanan, but since it's the lean season - this trip is not offered. However, Infinity Resort provides free transfers from White Beach or Muelle to Talipanan. You have no idea how delighted Donnie and I were when the staff offered us muffins and cold drinks on our way to the resort. We're just so hungry! LOL
After the short trip, we had our first glance of Infinity Resort. It simply outshines the other resorts in the area. This resort started its operation just around 1.5 years ago. Actually, the spa, gym, and other villas are still being constructed. Fairly new.
The resort looks so pleasant to the eyes. It is almost like a gallery of finely crafted woodwork furniture. I've never appreciated wood until the day Mr. Morillo, the owner of the resort, took time to educate me with the kinds of wood. Thank you sir, and I promise to knock and examine all the wooden furniture I will see next time. =)

At the end of the hallway is the infinity pool and the beach. The view I saw was extremely breathtaking.
vacation mode - ON
Everywhere I look made me in complete awe. We contained our excitement and proceeded to our executive room.

..and that's our fabulous villa, with the view of the pool and the mountains
Infinity Resort offers Deluxe, Executive, Premier Suite, and Family rooms. If you're a big group, you can rent the whole villa which is a combination of premier suite, executive, and deluxe rooms. Click here for the Infinity Resort rates.
Take a peek at our Executive Room. Im so inlove with these beautifully crafted wooden furniture.
natural elegance and luxury at the same time
executive room has 1 king sized bed, flat screen tv, mini fridge, ipod dock, and own veranda
By the way, this is the view from one of the windows.
now i wanted to jump out of the window, literally!
Moving on, the bathroom has the nicest tub with a head rest, rotating shower head faucet, and of course the rainfall shower. Most of all, the water which comes out of these faucets are ready to drink! Mr. Morillo showed me their own water purification facility. Awesome!
the spacious bathroom with tub and rainshower
purified water comes out of these faucets, seriously!
Okay, I love the room, and I love staycations too... but not this time! We spent most of our time in the infinity pool, the jacuzzi, and at the beach.
Have I mentioned that Donnie and I were the only guests in the resort? It became our private place! ♥
this Infinity Resort instantly became my happy place!

Of course, it wouldn't be a resort if it's not by the beach. Infinity Resort's location alone gives a fantastic experience to guests because of the tranquility of the place.

hello beach, i so miss you!
reunited with my element
I immediately removed my slippers and excitedly ran towards the beach. It felt so good to bask under the sun and bathe in the beach again. Suddenly I felt so happy and refreshed.
We loved the beach, but actually the jacuzzi area was where we really spent most of our time. The water was so relaxing and the view was perfect. After this, Im so energized to go back to work. =P
best infinity pool and jacuzzi experience, ever!
jacuzzi time! ♥
We enjoyed this bubble bath til sunset. These soft warm bread and cold fruit shakes even made the experience more perfect! Kudos to the awesome staff for pampering us.
soft warm bread and chillers for snacks
For dinner, Donnie and I decided not to go anywhere else but The Brae restaurant. The dishes are fairly priced, specially when the taste was really good and servings were really generous. And hey, they gave us complimentary blueberry cheesecakes!

The infinity pools were equally stunning at night time. Do you agree?
lovely infinity pool at night
care for a night swim?
Anyhow, aside from the gorgeous pools and jacuzzi, Infinity Resort also offers water and indoor activities. The play room has dart boards, billiards table, board games, and of course - videoke room!

It was really a great and refreshing day. We ended this with a super sound sleep in the comfy bed. One of the best sleep experience I ever had.
Come next morning, the sun was still at its mightiest. The view from the window delighted me again. Thank you Lord for the good weather and another feel-good experience.
good morning view indeed!
The room rate comes with set breakfast for 2 at The Brae. This comes with coffee, juice, bread basket, fruit platter, and a choice between american or filipino plated meal.
complimentary hearty breakfast for two
gandang di mo inakala ^_^
Overall, it was one of the best quickie weekend getaway I ever had. I am completely happy with the Infinity Resort experience, and I cant stress enough how much I enjoyed their infinity pools and jacuzzi. It is actually comparable to my experience in Misibis Bay and Crimson Resort, maybe even better. Now I have a new happy place, and it's just near Manila. Definitely, I would recommend this to everyone who wants a luxurious and quiet getaway, without the need of purchasing a last minute expensive flight ticket.
The following Monday, I came back to the office happy and energized to work again. Thank you Infinity Resort for that wonderful getaway. =)
