For those of you who don’t mind spending some downtime and discovering the unique charm of a seaside or lakeside property when it’s raining, here’s a list to get you started.

The best part about Escala is that each room has a balcony overlooking either their Instagram-worthy infinity pool, or the remarkable Taal Lake. The interiors are a stylish combination of glass and wood, complemented with a touch of green. You can dine alfresco in the hotel’s restaurant and enjoy the cool breeze, treat yourself to a relaxing in-room massage service, or simply enjoy a quiet moment and read a book by the balcony. Escala is located off the main road so the hotel has a great intimate vibe.
