Sometimes you don't just need a vacation, you need a quiet vacation. We hear your clamor for silence and have exactly eight suggestions for your next getaway—we've got a list of spots with private pools that'll whisk you away from noisy, overpopulated beaches and the city's trademark bustle. The best part? These are all IG-worthy and highlight interesting design ideas, too.

1. Mahogany Beach Resort, El Nido

Designed to be harmonious with the lush nature surrounding it, Mahogany is nestled in a 5,000 sqm coconut grove! Luxuriate in El Nido's idyllic beauty and expect wellness and comfort amidst a tropical garden. Your dream vacation: realized.


2. Blauset House, Siargao

An Airbnb gem, Blauset House is the place to stay if you're planning a barkada trip to popular Siargao. Welcoming a maximum of eight people, it boasts modern furniture, spacious beds, and, of course, a private pool. Oh, and there's WiFi available, too. What's not to love?


3. Shangri-La Resort & Spa, Boracay

Top-notch service is Shangri-La's middle name. Choose from over 200 suites and villas, then be prepared to want an extra night—booking the Tree House Villa, with its sweeping view of Boracay's unrivaled skyline, will ensure you'll never want to leave.


4. Isla Cabana Resort, Siargao

Isla Cabana only wants you to slow down and soak up some sea—a fantastic idea, in our opinion! The resort's long stretch of white sand is unmarred and makes for arguably one of the best beachfronts in the area. Get your surf on, then relax in your very own ensuite jacuzzi right after.


5. Pangulasian Island Resort, El Nido

Also known as the “Island of the Sun,” Pangulasian has breathtaking views of both the sunrise and sunset. There's a marine sanctuary right at its doorstep, by the way; the place prides itself on sustainability and has been proudly dubbed El Nido Resorts’ "eco-luxury" island retreat in Bacuit Bay.

6. Abaca Boutique Resort, Cebu

Mactan's got another treat for you! This chic little resort is a tropical hideaway that offers the tranquility of secluded deluxe suites set against the backdrop of a rich tropical oceanfront.


7. Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa, Bohol

Sitting pretty on the southern tip of Bohol, Eskaya is perfect for that secret getaway. There are only 15 villas, all beautifully inspired by traditional Filipino architecture, and most of them come with their very own swimming pools. Gorgeous.


8. Badian Island Resort & Spa, Cebu

Check into the Thalasso Pool Villa, a veritable cocoon of sheltered elegance. It's easily the finest of Badian's accomodations: the 98 square-meter suite's private pool contains ionized seawater released from a built-in waterfall and is equipped with a swim jet system for the ultimate dip.
