MANILA – Two properties in the Philippines are included in a website’s list of “amazing hotels you need to visit before you die.”

My Science Academy, which describes itself as an “educational science” website, noted how “everyone will find something interesting” in their list of top hotels, which include Dedon Island Resort in Siargao and Villa Escudero in Laguna.

The website showed the Waterfalls Restaurant of Villa Escudero, where diners can enjoy a meal with the sparkling waterfalls as a backdrop.

Meanwhile, a number of photos showed the natural beauty of Dedon Island.
