Unless you've been living under a rock, then for sure you've already caught wind of the biggest bombshell news over the weekend: Yes, it's true—Gerald Anderson and Julia Barretto are currently dating! And while the internet seems to have mixed feelings about their controversial romance, we'd rather just take cues from the newly-minted celebrity couple on where to spend our next summer getaway: Say hello to Hayati Private Resort!
Hayati, which translates to "my life" in Arabic, is owned by the 32-year-old actor. It's "a serene and scenic private tropical gateway resort in Botolan, Zambales," according to its Instagram page. It also claims to have the best view of the sunset—and based on previous reports, Julia might have witnessed that herself when she visited the resort with Gerald. In fact, the actress took to her Instagram Stories to promote Hayati Private Resort when it officially opened back in September 2020.
On multiple occasions, way before the couple went public with their relationship, some netizens claimed to have spotted the two spending some time together at the resort. And if Julia's caption for this IG photo is any indication, then it seems like she even planted flowers within the property. "My flowers growing beautifully," she wrote in October last year.
In any case, it's a great option for an unforgettable summer vacation! Hayati Private Resort is set right on the beach so imagine sleeping and waking up to the calming sound of waves brushing against the shore. Guests have full access to the beach and the rest of the resort's amenities, including a swimming pool, fitness center, billiards table, and fire pit. You can go swimming, biking, or kayaking. Or, if you just want to take things slow and enjoy the scenery, it would be a great idea to just lounge around and wait for the picturesque sunset that the resort takes pride in. Take lots of photos too while you're at it!
