SAN ROQUE PARADISE HOTEL
To be in Batangas, the main highlight would often boil down to one of two things—to be by the beach enjoying the shallow waters of the seashore and the beautiful sceneries therefore or to do almost the same thing, but by the lake.

A family-owned small business, the San Roque Paradise Hotel, only has ten rooms to accommodate people, which makes it’s a typical venue for a small number of people traveling in a group.

But, of course, the main highlight of being in this place is the lake itself, which is an ideal swimming spot by visitors who often prefer the freshwater of the lake over the salty one at sea. For the adventurers who like to get a comprehensive experience of the surface water of the lake, traveling by boat is undeniably a superior experience. CHECK ROOM RATES HERE
