LA CHEVRERIE RESORT AND SPA: First Five Star Luxury Resort in Anilao, Batangas


We have just experienced an awesome staycation at the first ever five-star luxury resort and spa in Anilao, Batangas. Opened just recently, it’s already gaining a steady flow of visitors from all over the world and that’s maybe because of its genuine Filipino hospitality paired with the manifique taste of modern French interior designer. The owners chose Modern Industrial Chic design, which is mostly whites, wood, steel and glass. All furniture were shipped from abroad and they are absolutely beautiful. Every area is like a scene from a high end furniture shop or from Ikea.

Below is a photo-blog to show you why you should come and visit La Chevrerie Resort And Spa:





1. ALL rooms have a breathtaking view of the sea.

2. The rooms are HUGE with sleep-worthy pillows, beds and comforters. 
I love the fact that they provided a big table in replacement of small office desks you find usually in other resorts/hotels. Oh! And they have a safe provided in each room. Also, their toiletries are really good, leaving your skin and hair soft like that of a baby. (Yes, it is that good that you would love to just hoard and take them home. But NO, we actually didn’t).

Huge and comfy. (Be careful not to let the bed bugs bite.) ☚

3. They have a suite which has the biggest space with the master’s bedroom having a veranda that has an astonishing view of the sea. The crashing waves will put you in a deep sleep as you rest in your room. This is perfect for honeymooners. It’s like you’re in a far away place, lost in the vastness of the sea.

4. La Chevrerie Resort and Spa offers a full service restaurant. 
Price is a bit on the expensive side but that is primarily due to the high cost of getting the freshest ingredients from the right places. Since most of the resorts in the area are far from the city, you could just imagine the cost of getting fresh produce in order to serve the guests good food. Also, not all resorts in Anilao serve fresh green salads or cheese, etc, so sometimes they have to source their ingredients from Tagaytay and even Rustan’s. What we love about the restaurant is how heavy their breakfast serving is. It’s like breakfast of the champions. One order can feed two pax at least.

Their wine cellar is full of hand-picked wines from abroad.

We highly recommend the braised seafood in eggplant, gratin cauliflower, shrimp cake, sesame beef, seafood and vegetables (Basically, our favorites would be their veggies and seafood selection)

5. La Chevrerie Resort and Spa has an alluring pool located just outside the room.
The pool is shaded from the harsh sun since it is covered under the dancing leaves of the coconut tree.

6. La Chevrerie’s Spa is something you should look forward to. 
Even if you are booked at other resorts in Anilao, Batangas, make sure to reserve a slot ahead to experience a heavenly massage at La Chevrerie. It would be extra nice if you can schedule your spa service an hour before sunset because the view is spectacular. Also, there is no need for spa music as the soothing sound of the gentle waves crashing to the shore lulls you to dreamland.

The spa services are very affordable for a five star luxury resort. The price ranges from Php 1,200 to Php 2,800. Not bad for the quality and ambiance.

We all loved their Swedish massage as the masseuse’s soft hands touched our body with the right pressure and used long strokes that helped relieve all the tensions from our sore muscles. Goodbye, stress; Hello, bliss!

After the massage, this was our view from the spa room as we sip our cup of tea.

7. La Chevrerie Resort and Spa can arrange a trip to a mountain peak (where you can see a striking 360 degree view of Batangas) – perfect venue for PRENUP or POSTNUP PICTORIALS

8. Aside from diving in Anilao, Batangas, La Chevrerie Resort can also arrange other activities for non-divers like me such as snorkeling and island hopping. 
Rates vary on the number of pax joining. One boat can accommodate 4-6pax per trip. Moreover, they include picnic lunch ☀ by the beach, too ☼

La-Chevrerie-Resort-Batangas
Since the resort opened just a few months ago, all items in the dive shop are still BRAND NEW. We were among the first guests to use the snorkels and masks. The divemaster informed us that all their stuff are from good brands and they wash and sterilize the items at least once a week (even the diving suits).

We truly enjoyed our weekend trip to Anilao, Batangas because La Chevrerie Resort and Spa made it memorable. This is definitely a great family staycation venue since it is only 3-4 hours away from Manila. Also, I highly recommend going here if you are planning on having your prenup or postnup soon ♥
