About Balituk Resort
According to the owner, Balituk comes from an Ilocano word which means “GOLD” in English. There are a lot of coconut trees that surround the resort and the sea is right in front of it. I admire how the place shows simplicity which makes the ambiance looks more restful. In fact, the entire place is adorable! It looks so calm and relaxing.

Things to see at Balituk Resort
The Teepee Hut
As you arrive at the resort, three teepee huts are already recognizable outside. The teepee hut looks so cute and inviting at the same time. It is good for 1-2 people but can accommodate up to 4 people. It is not as spacious as ordinary rooms, but the room is huge enough. The interior is simple, nothing much special about it. There are a fan and mattress beds inside the hut.
My friends and I decided to stay in a teepee hut. Actually, when I heard that the teepee hut is a non-fan room, I didn’t know what to feel. I thought at first that it wouldn’t be a good idea to sleep here. But, I was wrong! I had the best sleep here and it was very comfortable inside. It wasn’t hot at all even in the afternoon!! As a matter of fact, we didn’t have to use the fan anymore at night since it was already cold!
The setting of the teepee hut is indeed a great idea! You get to experience the sound waves of the ocean, the rays of the sun, and the smell of the ocean breeze. It will certainly put you into a meditative state. As a matter of fact, it is so relaxing that you just want to lay in bed all day. Yet, you have to go out for the restroom. Anyway, the restroom isn’t that far from the teepee hut.
The Air-conditioned Rooms
So far, there are four air-conditioned rooms available in the resort. The rooms come in different colors. They come in yellow, purple, red, and green. They look colorful which is pleasing to the eyes! What’s so interesting about these rooms is, they look like shipping containers. You can find these colorful rooms on the upper part floor of the container building. Its concept looks like a wonderful idea! The rooms are well-maintained and clean. They look plain yet well-furnished. Besides, each room has its own restroom!
The Lounge Area
It is on the first floor of the teeny container building. You can watch television, relax, and chitchat together with your family or friends. Additionally, it provides a wooden table, wooden chairs, and some colorful pillows. If you don’t feel like going swimming or sleeping, this is the best place to relax. Also, it is the best place to kill time if you have nothing else to do.
This is one of the things I liked about Balituk Resort; they have provided a kitchen. You can save money and time by making your own food in their kitchen! You don’t need to eat out anymore. More to that, all the cooking tools and equipment that you need are all set!
The Nipa Hut
There are two nipa huts that could serve as a dining area and a place for socialization. In fact, the setting is such a great idea! Imagine yourself having meals with a fantastic ocean view? How amazing!
The Swimming Pool
The pool area is right beside the lounge area. If you don’t feel like swimming in seawater or going surfing, swimming would be the best thing to do for relaxation. If you want to get away from the crowd, this is where you can find peace and make yourself calm.
There aren’t many people on the beach. Sometimes you will find yourself spending time alone hitting the sand! In terms of accessibility, it is kind of difficult to reach the resort. The road still seems to be under construction. The place is not familiar yet with most of the tricycle drivers so you better them to take you to North Shore. Then, you can find Balituk right before that resort. If you plan to go surfing, you can tell the staff and they will look for an instructor for you. Do not hesitate to talk to the staff because they are nice and accommodating.
Since the resort is still new, you might find the rooms aren’t enough to accommodate a bunch of people. The staff told me that they are planning to add more rooms in the future especially the teepee huts.
Things to do
Here are some interesting things to do while staying at the resort.
Get some fresh and relax
Balituk Resort is a great spot to stay away from or avoid the crowd. The place is really peaceful so you can definitely have some time to relax in the resort.
It’s no doubt that Baler is one of the most popular surfing spots in the Philippines, most especially in the Luzon region. Balituk Resort is actually offering surfboards that you can rent at a cheaper price. If you are a first-timer, I believe they also offer surfing lessons.
One good thing about this resort is it is beachfront, so obviously, the beach is really accessible. You can easily go swimming in the sea. Or, if you can also dip yourself in their swimming pool.
Since Balituk resort is located in Baler, Aurora, this is your chance to travel around the town of Baler. There are actually a lot of things to see in the town. Don’t miss out on visiting some of the popular landmarks here such as Diguisit’s beach, Dimatubo Mother Falls, Ampere Beach, Dicasalarin Cove, Balete Tree, and many more!
