La Bella Boutique Hotel (Tagaytay, Cavite)

La Bella Boutique Hotel in Tagaytay, Cavite, resembles Santorini with its hilly terrain and charming white buildings with blue accents. Despite not being on the Tagaytay ridge, its ambiance and cool weather evoke the feel of the Greek isles.

Issa’s Haven (Oslob, Cebu)

In Oslob, Cebu, there’s a special place called Issa’s Haven. While people mostly know Oslob for its whale sharks, this town has more to offer, like this cool resort. Issa’s Haven is a small resort inspired by Santorini, Greece. It’s not just a place to stay; it’s also a spot for events.

They have different types of rooms: one for solo travelers, villas for couples, and bigger rooms for groups. And guess what? There’s a pool right in the middle of the resort! Plus, they have a fancy rooftop bar and restaurant where you can eat.

Everything here reminds you of Greece. Outside, it’s all white with splashes of blue. Even the pool umbrellas are blue! And when you step inside, the rooms keep up the white and blue theme. It feels like waking up in Greece every morning. So, if you’re planning a trip to Cebu, don’t miss out on Issa’s Haven!

Camp Netanya (Batangas)

Looking for a taste of Santorini in Batangas? Check out Camp Netanya Resort & Spa in Anilao! This beach resort has the same charming style as Santorini, with its white walls, blue doors, and domes, and even a windmill that looks just like the famous one in Oia village. It’s like stepping into Greece, but right here in Batangas.

Anilao is known for its protected marine sanctuary, making it a great spot for diving and snorkeling. You can book dive trips or rent gear to explore underwater. And when you’re not in the water, the resort has plenty to keep you busy: there’s a spa, a gym, and an infinity pool with stunning views of the resort and Balayan Bay.

As for accommodations, there’s something for everyone. Couples can cozy up in a Superior King Room, families can spread out in a Family Loft, and big groups can stay in the Master Villa, which sleeps up to 14 people. So, whether you’re here for relaxation or adventure, Camp Netanya has you covered!

Vitalis Villas (Ilocos Sur)

Even though people mainly visit Ilocos Sur for its historic city of Vigan, this resort is a hidden gem. It’s often called the Santorini of the Philippines, and if you see it from above with a drone, you’ll understand why.

Perched on a cliff overlooking Santiago Cove, it offers stunning views of the sea. The resort’s white walls and blue touches stand out against the greenery around it. Walking around, you’ll feel like you’re exploring the hilly streets of Santorini.

There are seven types of accommodations to choose from, ranging from simple rooms to luxurious villas with private pools and butler service.

Even though it’s tucked away, there’s plenty to do at Vitalis Villas. They have a bakery, snack bar, pools, a pool bar, restaurant, spa, gym, and even a petting zoo! For adventure seekers, there’s zip-lining and water sports like kayaking and wakeboarding. So, if you’re looking for a mini Santorini getaway in Ilocos, this is the place to be!

Estancia Hotel (Tagaytay)

At Estancia Hotel in Tagaytay City, you can experience top-notch accommodation in uniquely designed rooms. Each room comes with amenities like air conditioning, a TV with cable, and a minibar. Plus, you’ll have a cold water supply and a telephone for your convenience.

The hotel is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the city, giving you a peaceful escape. From your room, you can enjoy stunning views of Taal Lake and the surrounding lush landscape, all within a refreshing tropical climate.

Estancia Resort Hotel is just about 60 kilometers away from Makati, which takes about an hour and a half by car. It’s located in Brgy. San Jose, close to Tagaytay’s rotunda and market. Whether you’re coming from Makati or Sta. Rosa, Laguna, you’ll find it easy to reach this serene retreat.
