Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Resort in Tayabas City
Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Hotel, Resort and Restaurant
This is actually an offshoot of the famous Kamayan sa Palaisdaan, found along the Tayabas-Lucban Road. The restaurant made its name for serving very fresh fish (caught before your eyes) in nipa huts actually located in the middle of the pond where the fish are raised. Be careful, though; unwary tourists have been known to take a header into the pond! The resort itself has a pool, trekking, and campsite facilities. It is a little pricey, but the food is good.

Mi Casa en Tayabas Hotel Resort and Restaurant
Literally translating to My House in Tayabas, this is actually more a hotel than a resort. It is a 6-story hotel furnished in the style of the Spanish colonial times with a modern twist. It is located in the city itself so it is easy to get around if you are there for the sights. The accommodations are standard and reasonably priced even for the locals.

Nawawalang Paraiso Resort & Hotel
The name itself is intriguing (Nawawalang Paraiso means Lost Paradise), but it isn’t all that hard to find. It is located in Barangay Camaysa and takes full advantage of the natural cold springs in the area to supply the swimming pools and make a stay in any of the cottages a pleasure. It is a little pocket of nature preserved on the foothills of Mount Banahaw, close enough to Tayabas and public transport to be convenient for backpacking tourists. It is very affordable to stay overnight, but you can also choose to just spend the day for a minimal fee.
