If you are looking for a place to spend the night or a weekend in Batangas I highly recommend Martinello’s Bed and Breakfast Nasugbu .
Martinello’s Bed and Breakfast has a beautiful view of Papaya cove, it is a very peaceful retreat away from the noise and the crowds of the city.
Situated on the west coast of Batangas it is just 2.5 hours drive from Manila if you go via the Cavitex. Once you get away from the traffic of Manila it is a very pleasant drive and it takes you through Mount Palay – Palay National Park which is a really beautiful drive.
Mount Palay – Palay National Park is just 10 minutes away from Martinello’s Bed & Breakfast and with its winding mountain roads and the Kaybiang Tunnel it is a favourite ride for motor bikers and cyclists.
From the roof terrace of Martinello’s Bed & Breakfast you can look over the bay and sit and watch the beautiful sunset, and watch the Cranes as they fly in from all over Luzon to roost in the mangroves for the night, thousands of them fly in every evening, and for bird watches the terrace is the ideal place to view the sceptical. If you are lucky you can sometimes spot Eagles hovering on the wing.
If you look inland from the terrace you can see the famous Parrot’s Beak of Mt Pico de Loro (also called as Mt Palay Palay) which is a favourite of climber. The mountain has a very distinctive monolith summit, it is believed Spanish sailors gave it the name Parrot’s Beak because it looks like a parrot’s beak when viewed from the sea. I am told the Parrot’s Beak is in Cavite while the monolith is in Batangas as the border for the provinces runs between the two points.
If you intend to climb Mt Pico de Loro Martinello’s Bed & Breakfast is a perfect place to stay so you can get an early start or to rest after a hard days climb.
On the large terrace there is a large Nipa hut that can sit 12 people where you can sit and relax.
The rooms at Martinello’s Bed and Breakfast Nasugbu are very clean and comfortable, it has safe parking, free Wi-Fi so you can post your pictures of the beautiful area to Facebook and the breakfast is fantastic.
For just 2,000 peso for a standard room and 3,500 for a room with aircon it is a fantastic deal.
Boat trips of the coves available.
