Dive Solana, Mabini, Batangas

Dive Solana, Mabini, Batangas

Dive Solana is a premier resort located in Anilao in southern Luzon. This splendid dive-dedicated resort offers scuba classes and underwater photography. Anilao Peninsula is surrounded by the Batangas Bay and the Balayan Bay, both famous their fabulous reefs and vast schools of colorful fish.

There are fourteen cottages that have private bathrooms, air- conditioning, balconies with beautiful sunset views, and are just steps away from the crystal clear water.

So in Solana, the food covers are from Sulu. The bedspreads were embroidered in Paranaque. the pillow cases from Taal, the soap essences from Tagaytay, the cushion covers are by the T’boli, the baskets by the Mangyans. The chocolate and the coffee come from the hills around us. Even the massage therapists are actually masters of the Filipino art of hilot!

More importantly, I had the honor and pleasure to interact with traditional craftsmen at work. I saw them thatching the roof. I saw them carving the columns. The result of their labors give the resort such an integral organic look because the skills used in creation arose from the land. The cogon roof and bamboo beams of our diving pavilion are so wonderful to look at that one almost forgets to get into one’s gear.
Of course, not everything is traditional. The chairs are plastic because they have to be left outdoors. But they are so cleverly made that they resemble their rattan models. And like their rattan counterparts they were also produced by hand using age-old methods.

The pottery is designed by foreigners, using imported methods as we do not have a tradition of high-fired glazed ceramics in the Philippines.

Dive Solana is a family-friendly resort, and there is plenty of space to run around and play. Swimming lessons, snorkeling, and sea kayaking are available. Three sumptuous buffet-style meals per day are served in the open-air restaurant overlooking the ocean. Whether on the fine white beachfront shaded by coconut and talisay trees, or underwater in the clear, cool depths of the bountiful sea, you are embraced by nature at its exotic best, and pampered by the friendliest and most hospitable staff and dive crew in the area.

    Dear Joel:
    Hope this finds you well! Had the chance to spend time with your cousin Elsie a few months ago, and it was fun to be caught up on yo9u and your world. When will you come back to visit in New York?

    I have a winner for the prize you donated to the Ma-Yi Fundraiser last year:


    I was the one who won the Anilao raffle at last year’s Ma-Yi Theater benefit. We are just now trying to finalize plans for taking advantage of this opportunity. I will be leaving for the Philippines in about 10 days and would like to finalize reservations at Anilao before then.

    I would like to use my raffle winning for my self and my wife, Ramona Benitez McClelland and to add my son Bryan, my nephew Geordie and his wife Lindsay for which we would pay full fare. Can you reiterate the terms of the award and check to see if we can reserve dates of either March 17 – 19 or March 24 – 26?

    Can you let me know what I need to do to finalize arrangements.



    Glenn McClelland
    P.O. Box 2129
    Wolfeboro, N.H. 03894-2129”

    As you can see, he would like to calim his complimentary weekend with you, but he woulod also like to book two more rooms at rack rate for his party.

    Can you tell me if you can accommodate on either of the two dates he gave you above?

    All best,

  • Patricia Verano

    hello! can you give me an idea of the travel time from Makati City? also, can the resort cover at least 150 persons. It is for our 1-day company outing.
