Welcome Back!

October 2020

The pandemic has affected the world in ways no one has ever imagined and it looks like it’s here to stay for a while. But as we all yearn for the “good ol’ normal days”, we’re hit with the realization that we’re better off accepting the “new normal”. Once you’ve accepted the new ways of things, it’s a lot easier to move forward.


We’re All In This Together

May 2020

Dear guests,
All around the world, the coronavirus has had a profound effect on the lives and economies of people from all walks of life. Each day brings new developments and we are still unsure about how or when this pandemic will be resolved. It'll take some time the experts say, but this too shall pass.

Right now, time is what we have a lot of, as we stay at home to protect each other. So in this issue, we'd like to share with you some ideas and tips on how to make the most of your quarantine time. From meditation to exercise to cooking, there's a variety of activities we can all try to make the best use of our days.

For us at Matabungkay, we're using this time to maintain the resort. Our stay-in housekeeping team follow the WHO guidelines for disinfecting and cleaning as well as social distancing.


Hello, 2019! Thank you, 2018!

January 2019

And just like that, it’s a new year: 2019. As we dive into the new year, we look back with gratefulness for the year that was.

Some highlights of 2018 include a photo contest we held in January, asking you, our community, why you love to return to Matabungkay. Some shared pictures of their weddings and anniversaries shared with family and friends. Some couples would come back with their children to celebrate their wedding anniversary as a family.


Batangas Food Festival 2018:
Food is the Filipino Heart

November 2018

Sometimes, it takes an outsider to show us how central food is to Filipino culture. A roommate of mine, doing an internship in the Philippines, once told me after his string of meetings, “Boy, you Filipinos just LOVE to eat, don’t you?!” And it was then that I realized that hardly any Filipino meeting will not have food at the center of it. Meetings at offices will have some sort of merienda; other meetings at restaurants will have food; and of course, when one meets at one’s house – professional or personal – the host will always have something prepared to munch on.
