Disclosure: I have partnered with Casa Antonio Glamping for this post. All opinions are my own.

I love camping. I love it so much that I have a list of campsites and glamping sites I want to go to. You can even find on this blog lists of campsites in Pangasinan, Zambales, Batangas, Laguna, Tagaytay, Cagbalete, Quezon, and Baguio. One glamping site I always wanted to check out when I was working in Batangas was Casa Antonio Glamping. Now, I’m happy to say that I can cross them off my camping bucket list.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking for information about Casa Antonio Glamping. Well, lucky you! You’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you should know about Casa Antonio Glamping.

About Casa Antonio Glamping

Casa Antonio Glamping is one of the pioneers of glampsites in the Philippines. For a few years now, they’ve been offering their tents (and now also their glamping huts) to every glamper.

Located in Calatagan, Batangas, Casa Antonio Glamping is a wide supporter of the indigent(?) people in the area. They’ve gone as far as providing jobs for the youth who are willing to be working students. Yes, that’s right. Every time you book, you’ll be helping the locals specifically the students since they have working students within their staff. Booking fees provide educational materials for one child, as well as sustain the soup kitchen. This is what made me love Casa Antonio even more!

  • Check In & Check Out Time: Flexible ( You can arrive as early and leave as late as you want.)
  • Walk-ins are not allowed.
  • Want to bring your furbaby? Go ahead. Casa Antonio Glamping is pet-friendly.
  • No corkage fee. (Yipee!)

Things To Do

You’ll love Casa Antonio Glamping. Here, you can choose from a range of activities to take your glamping experience to the next level.

Kawa Hot Bath

Recently, kawas have become a rave. After all, there are only a handful of places that offer this relaxing experience. So when you’re in Casa Antonio Glampsite, don’t forget to try this. It’s a must-try!

When Ryk and I had our kawa hot bath time, we requested it to be around 4 to 5 PM. This way, we can soak our stress away while waiting for the sun to set. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the sunset because of the rain. Huhu.

Massage

Casa Antonio’s signature massage? Try it. Explaining to you what it feels like to be relieved of stress won’t be enough. You have to try it for yourself to understand why it’s so good.

Kayak

I rarely do kayaking but with the shallow waters of Casa Antonio’s beach, I wanted to give it a go. Just imagine yourself kayaking and bam, you fell into the water. There’s nothing to worry about. The water only reaches your knees during high tide and above your ankles during low tide. But for safety purposes, just get yourself one of their life vests.

Oh, and did I mention? Kayak use in Casa Antonio Glamping is unlimited. But the kayaks available are only limited. It’s a first come, first serve basis so be early and avoid the peak seasons.

Chill

Stressed at work? You’ll have a great time chilling here at Casa Antonio Glamping. There are hammocks, stunning views of the ocean, beach tables (where you can just sit, relax and watch the waves), as well as plenty of space to run around in.

Check Out The Lighthouse

The Cape Santiago Lighthouse is near the glampsite. You can get here by walking or renting a tricycle. Just ask the locals for directions.

Book A Boat Ride

One of the well-known places in Calatagan, Batangas is the mini-bora or starfish island. To get there, you’ll have to rent a boat.

Bonfire

Once the sun goes down, it’s time for the bonfire. You can ask the staff to help you set it up. (So don’t forget to bring your sticks and marshmallows. As well as your ghost stories.)

Amenities and Features

Glamping Huts

Rain or shine, you’re good here. When we went to Casa Antonio Glamping, there was an incoming low-pressure area and a tropical cyclone leaving the country. We were pretty happy with the glamping huts since these babies can withstand the wind and rain.

Inside the huts, you’ll find mattresses, pillows, and blankets. There’s also a power outlet, as well as a light bulb so you don’t have to worry about your gadgets and the light. Depending on which hut is assigned to you, you can wake up to the view of the ocean once you open your hut and step out.

Glamping Tents

If you want to be nearer to the beach, choose the glamping tents and camp in style. These are also equipped with mattresses, blankets, and pillows so you’re comfy during your stay.

If you’re planning on going during the rainy season, I’d recommend you to book the glamping huts since the tents might not withstand the strong winds and rain.

Bathroom & Toilet

There are common bathrooms and toilets around the glampsite. And there’s plenty of water for you to use. However, we found the bathrooms and toilets to be a bit old.

Food

Don’t worry about the food if you booked a package (see list of rates and packages below) that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’re going to get stuffed! We had the time of our lives eating away and getting full at Casa Antonio Glamping. Their lomi tasted divine! Look forward to eating

Plus, you can choose to eat your meal at the beach and watch the waves while you chow. If you ask me, it’s the best place to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Haha.

What To Expect

Maliya

This is Maliya.

  • Do you love dogs? There are plenty here. The Casa Antonio Glamping has several rescue dogs that are quite friendly. They help guard the place so be kind to them. And don’t worry, they don’t bite. They’re vaccinated, too. Look out for Maliya. She’s the glampsite’s superstar! She’s very friendly and will continuously ask to be petted. Haha. She’s adorable.
  • If you’re not a fan of dogs, (boooo) let Casa Antonio Glamping know in advance so they can assign you to a hut where the dogs don’t hang out that much.

  • There are a few cows in the vicinity so you might find some cow poo around the area.
  • The beach isn’t white but more of a creamy color.
  • Bring your aqua shoes, the beach is a bit rocky.

  • The waters in front of the beach are very shallow. You can walk to a hundred meters and still find the water level to be on your knees to waist (high tide) or below the knee (low tide). This makes swimming on the beach hard. But with the kids, it’s a perfect spot.
  • Casa Antonio guarantees no overcrowding. During the weekdays, there were only 2 or 4 other people besides us. On the weekends, there were around 20 to 30 but it wasn’t too crowdy. You still get to enjoy yourself. However, there are only limited kayaks (first come, first serve) and kawa hot baths so you better be early in telling the staff when you want to take your kawa hot bath.
  • Depending on the season, you will find seaweeds scattered around the beach. Plus, with the waves, plastics can be washed ashore. If you find any plastic, please pick them up and put them in the trash can. And don’t litter!

  • You can store your frozen goods in the glampsite’s chiller. Just ask the staff.
  • There’s no store here but you can ask the staff to buy some stuff for you.
  • Night swimming is prohibited. Safety first.
  • Bring your own towels and toiletries.
