Weekend Getaway in Chateau Royale


I thought hindi na matutuloy itong gala na to just because madaming nagback out. It was supposedly a girl bonding with my closest friends at work, and I was uber excited pa nung halos lahat sila nagsabi na sasama. After few weeks heto na, isa-isa ng nagsabi na hindi na sila makakasama for some reasons like hindi nakapagfile ng leave. I understand naman the others na valid ang reason, pero yung hindi nakapagfile ng leave.. hay naku! Parang kahapon ko lang ba sinabi sa kanila na may lakad kami on that date?! Hay naku.. wala lang.. nakakadisappoint lang kasi I was expecting na mabubuo kami. Next time hindi na ko magaaya. Anyways, enough of the ranting.
Ayun nga, last last Friday tumuloy kami kahit 4 lang kami. We avail the promo deal from Cash-Cash Pinoy which is 50%. We got it for only 1999php good for 4 pax. Uber good deal di ba? Pumapatak lang na tig 500 lang kami. The package includes accommodation, breakfast and tour of the area. When you got the voucher, you can call the resort for reservations. Chateau Royale is situated in Batulao, Nasugbu, Batangas City. It is just 10 minutes away from Tagaytay. You can ride a bus from Buendia Taft (via SLEX) or Baclaran(via Coastal Road) going to Nasugbu, approximately 2 hours of travel time.
We got there around 2pm and Chateau Royale is just beside the road kaya hindi sya mahirap hanapin. Nasa entrance gate pa lang kami nakakarelax na yung place. Sabi kasi nila mas mataas pa yung lugar sa Tagaytay kaya malamig yung hangin. At ang shala ng lobby, prang isang malaking receiving area ng mansion because of the furnitures. I tried agad yung wi-fi nila kung gumagana and I was happy kasi ang bilis makaaccess. While luzil was talking to the receptionist, nilabas ko na agad ang x5 ko at nagpicture-picture na ko. After we got the key, lakad kami sa loob hinahanap yung room namin hanggang nakarating kami sa auditorium nila. Hindi namin alam na we need to ride a shuttle para makarating sa log cabin namin. Sorry naman! While waiting for the shuttle ayun photo shoot galore muna kami.
ang yaman nila sa chandeliers



ang shala ng mga sofa nila

Then the shuttle came, wala pa ata akong 5 minutes nakaupo baba na daw kami. Akala ko naman kung gaano kalayo yung lalakarin..hehe! Uber pampered naman pala ang guests nila, ayaw nilang mapagod sa paglalakad. Parang thai inspired un place kasi may mga buddha na nakahilera along the way to our log cabin.
When we got to our log cabin, we were amazed how cute it is. Pang tropa talaga! There were 2 single beds and a bunk bed on the other room, a cable tv, a shower with hot and cold water. Inviting yung bed, gusto ko muna matulog. Umpisahan ang pagrerelax..hehe! 4 pm pa naman ang tour kaya we have time to nap muna. Bago mag 4pm nagising na kami and we headed to the lobby para sa assembly ng tour.


First stop: Wellness Center and Spa

Second stop: Greenhouses with different organic veggies



Third stop: Mini zoo

Fourth stop: Mini market

Fifth stop: Wall climbing site

Sixth stop: Orchidarium

Seventh stop: Floating Restaurant

Eight Stop: Lotus Garden

Ninth Stop: Fishing Lake

After the tour, we went back to our log cabin and decided to try the pool Yey! Swimming time na ng biglang umulan! Buti daan lang, tuloy ang swimming. We had our dinner at the resort restaurant. Grabe ang sarap ng food!

Dami kong nakain at dahil dun maaga akong bumagsak.. bumagsak sa kama! May plano pa kaming uminom pero nung pinatay ang ilaw, sumabay na ang mata ko sa pagpikit.
At dahil maaga kami natulog, maaga din kami nagising. We headed to the resort reception ball to eat breakfast. Buffet style yun breakfast pero you had to choose 1 viand lang, its either adobong manok, hotdog or tinapa with fried rice with egg and either coffee or juice. Busog pa din kasi you can have another round of rice naman.
After kumain, we decided to dip into the pool. Sayang ang oras, maaga pa naman. After magsawa sa pool picture picture naman sa may obstacle course and tried kung kaya ba namin yun. Laugh trip and camwhoring lang!






Ng mapagod we decided to go back to our cabin to shower and get ready to go home. It was uber relax weekend for an uber cheap budget. Looking forward for more weekend getaway with you girls!

Chateau Royale is open daily and you can visit their site for more information.

IM SHARING YOU GUYS MY COMPLAINS TO CHATEAU ROYALE......
Hi Mr. Marc Montesa this is Ann Abrio. I don't know if you still remember me but i talked to you regarding my concerns/complains during our stay in Chateau Royale last Dec 27-29.. I wasnt able to write it all in your comment sheet.

Me and my whole family went to Chateau Royale for Christmas vacation last Dec 27 to 29,2012 but unfortunately,we are disappointed with the service.Was not expecting such BAD EXPERIENCE because in your website it looks like the place,people,service is very good but its not.I listed my concerns/comments/complains/observations.

1) Dec 27 arrival- log cabins needs maintenance & looks old.tried to transfer to bigger log cabins but so plenty of ants and finally decided to just get 2 rooms in Skylight Premiere.

2) Housekeeping/personnels who attended us dont know exactly what is the standard bed set-up per room as if they are new employees.I keep on asking them if how many beds are really included so i would know how many extra bed i would be needing.

3) Switch of light & door lock in CR are defective in Room 1 Skylight Premiere.. Door lock of CR in Room 2 Skylight Premiere also defective..We asked for your maintenance to repair but the door lock is still not ok.I thought rooms in Skylight Premiere are your best rooms but i think its not maintained...And why is it your water heater has schedule?so uncomfortable for the guests..

3) Veranda Cafe- dont use menu anymore if most foods are not offered or indicate it in the menu if its not available.that's why when we had our luch in Veranda Cafe i just asked the waiter, WHAT DO U HAVE?since most of what we want to order are not available.???? Then the next morning i called them for food delivery ( breakfast)..the one who answered the phone doesnt know the available breakfast,she even called the waiter.the waiter itself not that familiar which food is available & even ask your kitchen first..

4) Dec 28 we had breakfast in the ballroom behind Veranda Cafe then next day we assumed that same venue for breakfast but its not!!! we were in the main reception already when we found out that the breakfast is offered in your floating restaurant!!!we walked from our rooms to the main reception then walked again back to floating restaurant that is just beside the Skylight Premiere!!! When we arrived in the floating restaurant,almost all the tables are dirty!! no one is cleaning it.hayyy

5) WORST OF ALL IS WHEN WE USED YOUR SHUTTLE GOING TO MAIN RECEPTION AND THE SHUTTLE HAS FOUL SMELL!!!! THEY JUST USED IT TO BRING OUT THE GARBAGES!!!YOU SHOULD HAVE SEPARATE SHUTTLE TO BRING OUT THE GARBAGE & FOR YOUR CUSTOMER'S TRANSPO..
