Yats Resort Philippines Subic Reviews
Beautiful Resort, relaxing laid-back ambience, clean and safe Sep 19, 2009
There is a white-sand beach, man-made, with an adjoining swimming lagoon, overlooking the large 3ha lake. Across the lake is a wooded area called Frolic Garden where we found a croquet garden, swings and hammocks and a couple of horse-shoe throwing grounds.
From there you can see theamphi-theatre that again overlooks the lake with the stage actually setting over water. This venue looks ideal for small concerts, plays and other entertainment for a small capacity of about 150.
I was told that many weddings took place in Yats Clearwater Resort and I can see why. This place smacks of romance. I think it is even better for honeymoon. There is this row of 8 log cabins sitting right by the edge of the lake with a verandah over water. I stayed in one of them and I can tell you it is really something else to wake up and walk out to this view. I made special arrangements for my breakfast to be served on the verandah and it was magical.
It is a fairly large place so we need to be ready for a but of walking, although I understand there are golf carts that you can rent to get around. To me, that defeats the purpose of spending time in a park. But we did rent bikes to paddle around and that was a nice experience. Can't really do that in cosmopolitan Manila. Can't even walk the streets much in that confused city let alone paddle.
Rooms are basic, furniture a little sparse compared to resort hotels. I would characterize the lodgings to be in the class of bed-and-breakfast and not resort-class.
There is a cafe which serves good breakfast and basic lunch and dinner. We opted to drive over to Mimosa about 3 minutes away just a bit too far to walk, to have dinner at the fine-dining Yats Restaurant and Wine Bar www.YatsRestaurant.com. This restaurant is 5-star, better than anything in the Philippines. The wine list is mind-blowing. Prices are surprisingly affordable.
For more information about Yats Clearwater Resort, visit www.YatsLeisure.com or email them at Resort@Yats-International.com. I didn't get the phone numbers but I am sure you can find that on the web site.
I enjoyed my stay and will certain return for more. The rain dampened my say a little. I don't mind it but I am sure I would have enjoyed the rainy version of the resort if I had brought rain coat and an umbrella.
