Bali has become one of the standards for that perfect tropical island getaway in the world because of its gorgeous beaches, cozy villas, teeming flora and fauna, and picture-perfect scenery everywhere. Unfortunately, the ongoing global pandemic has temporarily put a stop to those of us who want to travel there.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own slice of Bali in the Philippines. In fact, so many resorts here have even dubbed themselves as the “Bali of the Philippines.” This picturesque resort in Maragondon, Cavite is one of those. Its Bali-inspired design may just take your breath away.
Paradiso de Rich Lopez
Located at Pinagsanhan A in Maragondon, Paradiso de Rich Lopez is the next best thing to paradise. Ideal for barkadas and family gatherings, this private beach resort features incredible amenities perfect for bonding and relaxation. It’s pet-friendly, too.
You’ll be greeted by lush trees and flowering plants once you step inside the resort. Reminiscent of Bali’s beautiful beach resorts, Paradiso de Rich Lopez features 4 kubo houses, 2 pugad houses, a main house, and an entertainment area.

There’s a swimming pool which you can use from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM, and from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Just make sure you maintain proper physical distancing.
You can also have your very own pictorial by posing in one of their giant kawa (a type of wok), woven hammocks, and in front of the Bali-style beach cabanas.
There’s no corkage fee on outside food, so take advantage of the resort’s kitchen. Here, you can use their refrigerator, rice cooker, and other cooking utensils for free. Bring your own charcoal if you want to use the grill.
