For Manila-based residents or travellers, here’s a resort that you do not have to ride a plane to get to: the Lago de Oro Resort in Calatagan, Batangas which is located about 2 hours from Makati. What might you do there?

You can waterski, play golf, go fishing, ride a carabao down the beach during low tide, swim in the South China Sea, and have lunch in a balsa (something like a floating raft?), among others. Room rates are reasonable at about P3,800 per night. They likewise have special rates and accommodations for drivers and householdhelp so you can have a more relaxing vacation. Children below 12 years old are free of charge.
