April 16, 2015 - PRLog -- Batanes, Philippines — In an Inquirer article featuring celebrities sharing their 'Best Summer Destinations', Rajo Laurel picks Batanes as one of his favorites. And Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge is where he stays when he is here.

“Batanes is so arrestingly beautiful that you are left in awe,” says the Filipino fashion designer in an interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI). For him, Batanes is the Philippines' most beautiful because of its scenic views and landscape, great food, and culture. He adds, “I also appreciate the Ivatan culture—the people are innately proud of who they are as a people. The quality of air, like that of life in Batanes, is pure and innocent. These qualities are what draws me back to Batanes.”

Along with Rajo Laurel, also interviewed by PDI are model and actor Derek Ramsay, and food and fitness enthusiast Erwan Heussaff. The 2 named Palawan and Siargao as their choice escape.


Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge is one of the few vacation destinations in the country that provides this melange of holiday comforts:
