How do you plan to spend your summer?

Main Pool

Kids, a day job, a business, chores, community work, further studies, and maybe even a demanding hobby. A combination of these can make you feel like your 12 hours a day are never enough.

Like money, time can slip through your fingers. But unlike money, once time's gone, you can't make more of it. Your next bet is to wake up another day and make your minutes and hours count – which is why you need to make sure your summer vacation is well planned and well spent.

Matabungkay Beach Hotel has over 4.5 hectares, so there's a lot of freedom to walk around and lounge about. It offers so much space – something the city has in short supply – so your mind and body can breathe. Stroll along the beach, snap a selfie by the pool, or enjoy a drink at any of our tents at sunset. It's your time to do whatever you want, wherever you want.

If you want a break from the heat, Matabungkay Beach Hotel has three swimming pools (two adult pools, one kiddie pool) for you to cool off in. Go for laps or just chill in one place with your friends (one of our pools has jacuzzi corners) while our waiters serve you a drink from the poolside bar.

Out in the sea, you can get a great workout on a pedal boat with your friends or an adrenaline rush from a jet ski ride. To slow things down, you can also take a balsa (wooden raft) out into the waters and just relax. Apart from this, there's the banana boat, kayaking, scuba diving, and snorkling.

For the less adventurous, there's always indoor games at the Sports Bar where you can go for several rounds of billiards and darts while sipping on gin and juice. When hunger sets in, our restaurant Café Caballero is just next door with a menu as wide as anybody's appetite.

When nightfall arrives, it's the perfect time to gaze at the sky and sit on the sand, listening to the water lap against the shore softly. Nearby, Matabungkay Beach Hotel's firepit provides a nice warmth and glow to balance out the cool breeze of the evening. It's a nice time to rearrange your mental furniture.

When you're at Matabungkay Beach Hotel, time slows down and the din of the city is far, far away. So when you're here, leave your worries at your desk (they'll always be there when you get back). Here, your 12 hours a day are your own.
