We work hard and looked for somewhere absolutely away from everything to relax. My wife and I discovered Buri Resort & Spa through a friends recommendation. We arrived at sunset having enjoyed a 45 minute boat cruise over from Batangas Bay, including dolphins swimming about the boat as we cruised. The sunset in the area was just beautiful and set the scene for a wonderful few days for us to reconnect with each other and just relax. The greeting on arrival was warm and genuine, the food at Animasi was not expensive, fresh and tasty. Blue Bar had cold cocktails and good mood music, the pools were beautiful, the landscape lush and natural. Our room a Buri Villa had two floors, downstairs main bedroom with plunge pool off the 2nd balcony, main balcony overlooking the gardens, pool and ocean, incredible views. The main bathroom had big rain shower and was clean. Upstairs was a chill out lounge with big flat screen TV and more great views. Unassuming luxury we would say. The Nurture Spa at the top of the hill has the most incredible views although its a climb to get there its worth it to spend 3 or 4 hours relaxing and getting rejuvenated, they are upgrading it so check it out if you go, the views and photos you can get up there are fabulous, the Spa speaks for itself, try the Prince/Princess treatments.. WOW! We had some trips around the islands and bays, sampled local fresh seafood and just chilled out together, from Bangkok its a 3 hour flight, 2 hour car trip from Manila and 45 minutes by boat.... all time well spent for a most relaxing 4 days in paradise at Buri Resort & Spa.
We rate it one of the best short vacations we have had.

Unique Qualities: Great Views
Unspoiled Scenery
Genuinely warm service & hospitality
Quiet surroundings, even when busy you feel absolutely secluded
Unassuming luxury surrounded by nature
Diving in the area is awesome, some of the best we have seen and all close to the resort, none of these 2 hour bone jarring speed boat rides to get to the dive sites like you experience from Phuket and other locations
