Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (quite mouthful eh?) A Heritage Resort that truly deserves to be visited. At approximately 4 hours travel time from Manila, this place will be your sanctuary.

Their tag line says it all:


How to get here from Manila:

– Go to Genesis bus terminal in Cubao

– Ride their Balanga, Bataan trip at 200 fare per person (in Lubao, Pampanga you will transfer into another bus – not sure If this is always the case)

– Alight at Balanga Bus Terminal (Cubao to Balanga,  3 hours)

– Ride Bagac Jeep at 47 fare per person (Balanga to Bagac, 45 minutes)

– The driver will drop you off at a street where there’s a tricycle that will take you to Las Casas at 10 fare per person (7 minutes)

We arrived at Las Casas at 1pm, and had an early check-in. See our room:


I love the four poster effect. The room is very elegant and old fashioned. That door with intricate design is the bathroom.

We joined the Heritage Tour at 3:30 pm with a very nice tour guide (Kim) – The tour lasted an hour, at the end of the tour, you get a cold towel and drinks (Sago’t Gulaman).

If you’re into historical sights and stories then this is the perfect place for you. I have always been fascinated with history and to be able to discover and stay in this haven is a wonderful experience.


Each of these houses has their unique story.


1. in old times, These are the houses of the poor, made of wood. 2. For Alipin Saguigilid, they’re only allowed to walk here so as not to be seen by their Amo, only Alipin Namamahay are allowed to go inside the house and face the visitors. 3 and 4. Before, If your house is made of cement and rocks, and has crownings – you are rich.


It rained during the tour, so they provided us with these disposal rain coats (I remembered Pope Francis ) 🙂



Some of the creative statues in the resort




Right after, we enjoyed the beach which is very private (I think there’s only 5 people in the area at the time) 🙂




At Dinner time, we went to La Bella Teodora, an Italian Restaurant. The food was great, kinda expensive (think Italliani’s) but unfortunately the service – not so much.


The greatest part that night? We get to walk in a historical and romantic park under the stars…


Waking up at 6AM on a vacation seems impossible, but just by taking a look outside our window I knew that we had to experience the cold breeze in this place. And so the first thing we did was to ride a bike at 150 per bike an hour. Circled the whole resort, took pictures and avail our free breakfast at Cafe Marivent.

Breakfast set of Rice, Fruit, Egg (Pair of 2: Daing, Corned Beef, Longganisa) with drinks: Coffee and Orange Juice.

Then to enjoy the last few hours in the resort, we once again toured the whole resort, took some shots, swim at the pool and beach.

One of my favorite houses in the place… Look at that color and materials 🙂

There;s this side of the resort that looks like a village. Very beautiful and the craftsmanship of each house is superb! Look in the details of everything!




These stones… imagine, piece by piece…




Check-out time at: 12NN. For commuters, they can call a tricycle for you and you just need to wait at the gate in the entrance to be fetched.

They also have a day tour package which you can avail at 1,800 per person. But what’s really special here is that most of the houses in the resort are for rent. At different rates, you get to stay in this historical houses. at One house, you get to have your own butler plus Hermes toiletries!

Our overnight stay in the heritage resort brings a blissful moment to relax and just appreciate the past. I am the type of person whose into history and culture, the reason that I enjoyed the place very much. I strongly recommend this place… Take the time off and disappear into a place where time stands still.

One thought on “Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

  1. Seeing the old houses there at Las Casas makes me happy as I’m assured that the future generations will be able to see and appreciate these structures that served as witnesses to our country’s colorful history 😀

    It’s just sad that only a few individuals like Mr. Jerry Acuzar of New San Jose Builders (the owner of LCFDA) actually exert effort to care for these. If these houses were still in Manila, they would have been dilapidated already due to neglect.
