Montemar Beach Resort

I’ve never been to the Montemar Beach Resort in Bagac, Bataan but I definitely want to try staying there given the chance. One criteria that I consider for a beach resort to be good is if it faces west and Montemar definitely fits the bill. Why west? Well, I love spectacular sunset views and beaches that face west give us a nice uninterrupted view of the setting sun framed by the sparkling water and a fiery sky!

According to the official website of Montemar Beach Club, the resort has been rated “AAA” by the Department of Tourism in Bataan. And based on the various informal blog reviews, I think the resort deserves that award. Montemar used to be an exclusive resort, but thankfully the management decided to open it up to non-members, although at more expensive rates.

Like any respectable beach resort, Montemar has a plethora of aquatic activities like jet skiing, banana boating, aqua cycling, and kayaking, among others. You can also go swimming in the pool, play lawn tennis, table tennis, or badminton, or practice your swing at the executive 9-hole golf course. And at night, you can have a beach bonfire (but it costs P650) or sing at the KTV room.

I’ll definitely suggest this resort as a possible place for my section’s team-building activity next year.

    When I visited… ~20 years ago, you could see the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant from there.

    @Miguel, really? Wow. Too bad the nuclear plant is still in low-res in Google Maps.
