6. Oakwood Premier, Ortigas

7. Nurture Spa, Tagaytay

Rates: Packages start at P9,500, but individual service rates and promos are also available

Nurture Spa is a household name when it comes to wellness and rejuvination. Tucked in the highlands of Tagaytay, this is the best place to go when you really want to temporarily run away from it all. Enjoy wonderful massages and healthy dinners while relaxing in a green and calming environment. 

8. Las Casas Filipinas de Azucar, Bataan

Rates: Starting at P10,000 per night


Turn on the Filipiñana feels at the Las Casas Filipinas de Azucar, a sprawling venue of 18th century villas and casas reconstructed brick by brick not only as place for you to rest and relax, but also as an homage to history. Make sure to tip your hat to the ilustrado you'll probably bump into along the cobble-stoned street!

9. Camayan Beach Resort, Subic

Rates: Inquire at +63-47-252-8000


You can always sit back and relax by the shore, but if you're up for an adventure, Camayan Beach Resort offers diving lessons and equipment rental. How's that for a weekend getaway?

10. Lake Pandin, San Pablo Laguna

Rates: Less than P1,000 for an afternoon at the lake

There's no lodging along the shore of Lake Pandin. You'll need to book somewhere else, commute to the area, and walk a little before you can get to this gem, but trust us that it's worth it. You'll be eating the freshest catch of the day on a bamboo balsa while enjoying the cool afternoon breeze. You can also jump into the water, but you'll need to be careful as it's very deep.

With a list like that, you’ve got at least got a couple of weeks covered.  Not only are these places totally relaxing, you’ll get there in only a short amount of road time. Happy travels!
