Villa Jovita Resort Travel Guide: The Bali of Batangas

Villa Jovita

Flocked by tourists for its relaxing ambiance and riverside pools, now Villa Jovita will give you more reasons to visit.

Villa Jovita has taken the social media by storm with their non-chlorinated swimming pools. A dip in one of their pools will make you feel refreshed especially with all the bamboos and the view of the river nearby. It’s nature at its best. The resort is the best place to go to make your worries go away and feel better.

Now, Villa Jovita is going viral because of their Bali inspired set. With all the beauty surrounding the resort, you’ll feel like you’re in Bali. Yup. You read that right. Bali right in Batangas. It’s just 2 to 3 hours away from Manila.

Villa Jovita: Bali of the South

This September the resort opens its Bali inspired corner to everyone.

There’s no need to fly to Bali to get an instagrammable photo. In fact, Villa Jovita did a pretty great job at creating this Bali corner. Anyone who sees your photo would think you really did go to Bali. When I went there, we were joking about ‘checking in’ at Bali when we post our photos on Facebook. Haha.

Just look at these photos.

The resorts Bali inspired corner more than exceeded my expectations. It’s like getting transported to a magical place that you never want to leave from.

At first, the swing might look a bit daunting, but the moment you’re up in the air, you’d wish it went on and on and on. The view is beautiful and combined with the fresh air hitting your face, it all feels amazing!

If it were up to me, I’d rent the nest for the night and sleep there. Hahaha. It’s just so cute and well made, you’ll want to take a gazillion photos.

I’d love to come back here. It’s like my small happy place. *insert smiley

When I went to the resort, there was only another group and me. Needless to say, I had tons of fun walking around the resort and swimming.

The staffs were very accommodating, and I even had the chance to meet Miss Mariza, the resort owner. She was very friendly and kind in assisting me with the Bali inspired corner of the resort. And since I was all alone, she was the one who took these awesome photos of myself.

I’m forever thankful Miss Mariza.


Aside from the Bali inspired corner, the resort has five natural pools. The deepest is at 5ft. There’s also a recently built pool which has a slide. If you’re a group, there are tables and cottages for rent for the day. There are also shower areas and toilets in the resort so be sure to bring your shampoos, towels, and soaps.

  1. Been there last October. Bali inspired setting is perfect! Instagram worthy and the whole place is just amazing. Gonna blog about Villa Jovita soon. I like your blog cheers ?

  2. Do they follow strict COVID-19 safety protocols? I asked for Holy Week measures (since it might get crowded) but the FB page doesn’t seem to elaborate about their rules. How’s your experience on safety measures? Thanks!
