Luxus Residencia de Baler feels like a manor house of your long lost rich grandparents or as they say in tagalog, bahay ng mayaman na lolo at lola.

The property is just a tric away from baler central terminal and just a few more minutes away to get to the resort to sabang beach.
Yes, it is close enough to the city proper that you would feel you could get around to places easily and would not miss anything, but is far enough to feel that you are on a more private and intimate location.

First thing I loved about the place is it's ambiance. It doesn't feel like a generic resort nor hotel. If anything, it made me feel like a grandson to rich grandparents that wants to welcome me home, make me feel at home and tells me "you could stay as long as you want, everything is fine, we'll be taking care of you as long as you want" without the whole mushy awkward conversation you may or may not have with your own grandparents.

Speaking of ambiance, note for all the photographers, the ambient light on this property is just superb. One could get all sort of great shots just by pointing the lens even on the most common frame because of the quality of the ambient light it receives.

Following that, the second thing I loved about the place is its architectural design and quality. My words wouldn't be enough, it is better to see it personally with your own eyes.

Third, the water on the pool is clean. You may arrive at the property with a side of the pool with no water, which is because the management sees to it that every pool is clean, the water on it is clean and the pool does not need chlorine to be clean. There are about 4 or so sides to the pool, that even if the other sides are not accessible, you could just use the others, which is guaranteed to be clean.

Fourth, the management and the staffs doesn't feel like just "employees" that was hired to take care of the property. They feel like long lost relatives and friends that you could depend on. Even just on the process of booking and asking for information, it would almost feel like a "too good to be true" situation. Don't worry, it is real. They are still learning but I trust that they would grow more and grow better.

The price tag may be higher compared to other lodgings targeted more for barkadas or surf-centric stays, but if you are looking for something more than just a lodging place after surfing at sabang beach, if you are looking for something that you want to take your special someone with and have a romantic time on baler, if you are looking for something that you could bring your family on a more private accommodation, if you are looking for something that is on a more quiet side of baler without traveling all the way out to cemento nor diguisit, Luxus Residencia de Baler may be the place you are looking for.

If you are worried about the images you see here or at their fb page, they just need an update and a more dedicated team to bring out the "luxury" the property has to offer. Trust me when I say that the current images(early may 2017) just scratches the surface of the potential it has.

For that, I'm rating this place 10 koi fishes out of a pond with a stone bridge.

A note for the ones who would commute via tric ride, remember the phrase/reference "malapit kela ben mata", it would help you immensely.

We recently spent a night at this property.It was highly rated but in the end we preponed our departure .This was a charming property,well maintained and with good housekeeping.But it was quite far from the beach and no in house catering facilities and was far from any eating or shopping facility.In fact it has no staff after 5 PM .
But before I finish I must add that the all girl staff was very curteous and ready to serve.

FYI our location is just 5 minutes from the beach, we are just 3 minutes from poblacion where most of the shoppping center are located and restaurant, we have staff at the hotel for 24 hours, and and we take pride that we are a very exclusive private place only open to guests that are booked to our hotel, our place is the official residence of Miss Baler Candidates last August 2015 and August 2016

This here is not a hotel and it is a little bit far away from the beach, but no problem as a tricycle drive you there for 3 persons for 50 P. Staff is very helpful and the rooms was very clean, and there was a lot of Tv canal, but WIFI very slow. Breakfast is as in the PH, and nothing special,

This is a lovely hotel showcasing the artistic skills of the owner. The details of the house turned to a hotel shows how grand and luxurious it is, from the garden, to the lobby, to the rooms and the swimming pool. I was worried at first that this hotel might not meet my expectations given that i see less reviews about it. But, when i came in yesterday, I saw how lovely it is and the feeling of elegance showed inside and out.

This is highly recommended to those who wants a cozy and homey atmosphere, 10mins away from the crowded beach.

Pros:
+ the whole hotel itself shows how artistic, beautiful and elegant it is
+ swimming pool with different levels,
+ lushious garden with pond
+ wide lobby and reception
+ different bed sizes with 4 posts
+ bath tub with heater and cozy rest room

Cons:
- no restaurant

We were looking for a quiet hotel with good facilities and could not find anything near the beach so tried here..... It was a good choice.
Like staying in big mansion with many pools and a great garden, rooms were more than enough for our 2 families and the buffet breakfast was more than enough.
I would certainly stay here again but if you have small children you should be careful with the pools as none have any depth markings and some are very deep.
