Hop onboard and let your stresses drift away on La Rita’s refined take on a floating cottage! Their spacious cottage has a huge floor area and offers guests a lot of room to move about while bonding with friends or family at sea.
The cottage is almost as big as a house, and is comprised of a dining area, the deck, a pool, and a comfort room.
The dining area has one long table in the middle with 5 wide benches surrounding it. Notably, there’s a lot of legroom to go about, which makes it easy to walk through without stumbling into the furniture or other people. The dining area is particularly perfect for boodle fights and finger-food snacking.
Beside the dining area is the deck of the cottage. It’s a wide area for walking, sitting, and gazing into the sea. Then, conveniently installed in the middle of the deck is the swimming pool. Now, in every barkada, there’s always that friend who’s afraid the ocean or the friend who can’t swim. The pool is the best fit for that friend who wishes to swim in absolute safety. It is an area lower than the deck cottage that allows water in, making a safe area where one can dip or paddle around without worry!
The cottage is purely open air, which means the scent of the sea and the spray of the saltwater freely passes through all areas of the cottage. This makes such an immersive time at sea and really brings you into the moment. At this point, you may wonder where one can get some privacy when nature calls. Fret not, as La Rita’s also has a fully functioning comfort room that doubles as a dressing room. With that covered, you are free to enjoy more of their amenities like the hammock installed onboard, and swimming with their free-to-use life vests.
La Rita’s Floating Cottage is based in Bantayan Bay, Cordova, a strip of beach known for its remote sandbar, crystal clear water, and mangroves. It may be best to set sail early to maximize what Bantayan Bay has to offer.
