Golden Sunset is one of the country's premiere resort, just a two-and-a-half-hour drive south of Metro Manila. Located in the historic town of Calatagan, Batangas, it is fast becoming the destination for vacationers and beachgoers alike. Golden Sunset has something for every member of your family: a Serendipity Spa where you can relax and unwind, a Butterfly Sanctuary where your kids can learn more about butterflies and various restaurants where your whole family can wine and dine to different types of cuisines. Finally, the vacation you and your family truly deserve!

Golden Sunset offers to its guests the perfect mix of breathtaking natural features, world-class amenities, relaxing yet exciting leisure activities and excellent service from a courteous and well-trained staff: all the ingredients of a relaxing and memorable vacation in one destination! Take a stoll along their sandy boardwalk, swim in their crystal clear waters or simply marvel at the beauty of their golden sunset.

Owned by famed hairdresser Ricky Reyes, the beach resort was built on a 20-hectare property in Barangay Uno, Calatagan, said to be the marketplace for transient Chinese traders during the pre-Spanish era.

In 1958, during extensive diggings made by Robert Fox and National Museum personnel in the same place where the resort is now located, it yielded Chinese potteries, heirloom, and human relics indicating their stay in the area. The discoveries now known as the Calatagan diggings collection are kept today at the Ayala Museum.

"I bought this property which was left barren by that extensive archaeological diggings with no sign of life except for a lone tamarind tree in its middle. If not for the magnificent view of the Golden Sunset I would not have bought it," Ricky Reyes told the Bulletin.

But today, like the phoenix, the legendary bird, it rises from the ashes (wasteland and an abandoned fishpond) to become a prime tourist destination with all the facilities and amenities of a resort of international standard.

Very soon, in support of the medical and beauty tourism program of Tourism Secretary Ace Durano, the Golden Sunset Resort will put up an Operating Room (OR) to cater to the health and beauty needs of balikbayans, particularly from the United States.
