ABUCAY, Bataan Inland and beach resorts abound in Bataan but Villa Amanda Resort and Restaurant in this town counts among a few that has roofed swimming pools, a mini-zoo and serves the much-sought-after pesang tilapia. It has two kiddie pools, a pool for children and another for adults that are with roofs that protect swimmers from direct sunlight. Bathers enjoy the water even during the hot noon and afternoon sun.

“Hindi lamang may bubong ang aming mga swimming pools kundi laging bago at malinis ang tubig nito,” resort supervisor Jason Dilig said. Jason is one of the children of Amanda Dilig, owner of Villa Amanda, who personally supervises all areas of the resort “to see that visitors are safe and enjoying.” Lifeguards are on tight watch over swimmers.

Entrance fee is P80 for adults, P70 for children. Picnic huts are available for P200 – P300. The resort that lies adjacent to the MacArthur Highway is accessible to passenger jeepneys and tricycles. It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. “We also have a restaurant that serves the best pesang tilapia, inihaw na tilapia and other cuisine at reasonable and affordable price,” Jason added.

Tilapia for sure is fresh and clean, being raised in ponds right in the resort. “Pumupunta kami rito upang makalanghap ng masarap at sariwang hangin,” said Aida Santos of barangay Lamao, Limay. She was with a big number of relatives.

At the back portion of the resort is a mini-zoo that children love to roam around. There are two big Burmese pythons, different fowls and birds, a bayawak, a crocodile, monkey and peacocks.
