Chateau-du-Mer is a small, quiet resort in the island of Marinduque, Philippines. It is located in Barangay Amoingon (Boac), and is less than 10 minutes driving either from Cawit Port or from the Marinduque Airport. With a well-designed beach house, a spacious garden, a conference room that has been used for regional meetings, the place has also become a popular venue for wedding receptions, anniversaries and family affairs.

Recently, a beach wedding was held there. While fairly new, the owners are now considering more refurbishings in the area, apparently encouraged by similar public and privately-marked efforts to pursue the island-province's potential to be a byword among eco-tourism destinations in the Philippines.

Marinduque continues to be touted by developers as one of the next hottest tourism hotspots in Asia in view of its proximity to Manila, unspoiled island beaches, some of which could rival Boracay, and the establishment during the last couple of years of the ultra-luxury Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa.
