Solitude Acacia Resort (formerly Acacia Dive Resort) is one of Anilao (Mabini), Batangas’ top diving and leisure resorts. It re-opened its doors in 2020 after undergoing a full world-class makeover.
As it is only a 2~hour drive from Manila, it has become the ideal weekend getaway and perfect choice for a holiday to a world-class diving destination.
The resort hosts guests in 25 spacious, comfortable rooms that complement its beautiful tropical surroundings.
Two blocks offer rooms with sea views while two other blocks house deluxe rooms. The modular designs in all rooms can accommodate twin or king-sized beds. In addition, some of our rooms are adjoining and great for families or friends requiring more than one room.
Free Wi-Fi is available in all room categories.
Sea View Suite
Situated on the top floors, these rooms offer lots of space being the largest of our room types, accompanied by an unparalleled view of the ocean and the pool from the west facing balconies.
Sea View Deluxe
Located on the ground and first floors, these rooms also have the best views of the ocean and the pool from the west facing balconies.
Our most modest rooms are only a minute away from the main area of the resort and the ocean view. *Insider tip: There are 2 of these that have the Ocean View as well, ask about it when making your booking
*Mattress sizes are W96.52cm x L203.20cm (80”) for twin-beds and 193.04cm x 203.20cm for king-beds. All rooms can be set up as a twin share or king-sized bed.
One of the most important considerations when rebuilding Solitude Acacia Resort was the Kitchen and Dining areas, which has been endearingly named ‘The Acacia’.
The glass walls, ceiling and hanging plants allow guests to enjoy the cool ambience of a tropical setting without sacrificing the beautiful views of the resort and the ocean. Alternatively, guests may also choose to dine in our al fresco balcony section for an uninterrupted view of the sea.
Our restaurant prepares meals using quality ingredients and fresh produce; serving a variety of different cuisines to quell any hunger. All meals are plated expertly by our trained chefs and served à la carte.
Guests on a package have a full-board meal plan although there is always an option of selecting something else from our usual menu, there is always a specials menu from time to time and not to mention the secret menu curated by the management and staff.

We have choices of vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose from our menu and we are also able to accommodate most guests’ specific dietary needs, if it is needed. Should you have any dietary requirements, please let us know before your arrival so we have time to source the right ingredients for you.
