Beach Resorts all around Laiya Batangas

Laiya is a relative newcomer to the beach scene in a country where beaches are a big draw for both local and foreign tourists. Situated about 87 miles south from Metro Manila in San Juan,  Batangas,  it is not as accessible as some of the more popular Batangas resorts. However, Laiya has 3 miles of shoreline, and it is ideal for beach bumming, diving, snorkeling, and even fishing.

Developers call Laiya “life in color,” but actually most of what you will see is white, green, and blue, which is just fine for nature lovers. Because of its long shoreline, there are perhaps more than 50 resorts in Laiya. However, if you are planning a day outing, weekend getaway, or team building, and you want the best experience you can get, you may want to consider these top 4 beach resorts all around Laiya, Batangas

If you are a big group, and you don’t mind sleeping on the floor, One Laiya may be the place for you. Formerly the Tayabas Bay Beach Resort, the new management offers day tour cottages good for 25 people for PhP2,500 (add Php1,000 for overnight until 7 am only), and you can bring in food and drinks, which is a rarity for most Laiya beach resorts. If you plan to overnight, you can get the air conditioned  White House for PhP15,000 that is technically for 12 people, but can accommodate up to 30 people with extra mattresses in the common areas. It also has a kitchen to cook meals, and common grilling facilities outdoors. Whatever you get, add PhP100 per person over 12 years old plus the extra mattress charge, and you have your affordable vacay! Senior citizens and drivers (one per group) get in free as well.

Of course, you want more than a roof over your head. The beach is clean with the typical white (not powdery) sand of the Laiya coastline. Swimming and beach bumming is free, and the water is shallow for the most part, so it safe for kids and non-swimmers. Water activities include jetskiing, banana boating, kayaking, and snorkeling (for additional fees). You can also rent a videoke if you feel like singing.

Because it is quite affordable, you can expect it to be full on weekends. The best time to go is Sunday afternoon and anytime from Monday to Thursday.

On the other hand, if you want the luxury experience, you can check out Acuatico. It is the most expensive place to stay in Laiya, but the facilities are top-notch, so it is value for your money. Their most affordable package is PhP6,300 a night for two persons, and it includes free Wi-Fi, an excellent buffet breakfast, use of the infinity pool, and use of their pedal boats and kayaks. An extra person costs PhP1,575, which is not bad at all. The rooms are neat and clean, and so was the beach. On weekend nights, you can enjoy your dinner by the beach and watch a fire dance. If you’re looking for VIP treatment in Laiya, this is definitely the place for you. You need to book in advance, however, as it is very popular.

Phone:(02) 847 0953

Formerly Balai sa Laiya, and a stone’s throw away from Acuatico (which owns it), Acuaverde is less expensive than Acuatico. A typical room for two will cost about PhP6,000, but  it comes with full-board buffet style meals (or plated in the off-season) and the food is good though nothing to write home about. It has lots of trees and wide-open spaces, and the concrete accommodations blend nicely with the surroundings. The beach is wide and clean, dotted with sunbeds and cabanas. Note, however, that the water level drops suddenly quite near the beach, so watch your kids. It has no swimming pool, but they have a mini playground, bar games, and usual water sports such as  jet skis and kayaks. You can also play beach volleyball.

La Luz Beach Resort

La Luz is distinctive because it operates more like a private beach club than the usual beach resort. They have very strict house rules to maintain the cleanliness and natural beauty of the area. The owners originally intended it as a family getaway, but because it became so popular, it has opened its gates to the public. You will see the use of native materials such as bamboo, and everything is extremely clean.

Despite this air of exclusivity, La Luz is actually quite affordable. A room for two costs as little as PhP3,600 a night, and an extra bed is PhP540, maximum of two. However, you have to add the PhP450 entrance fee, and you can’t bring in food so you have to pay for their full-board buffet food package at PhP1,485 per person (children 5 years and younger are free of charge). The food is delicious, so it is not bad at all.  If you want the day tour, it is PhP850 per person inclusive of entrance fee, lunch, and afternoon snack.

For a fee, you can rent all sorts of sports equipment, play board games, get a massage, play beach volleyball or badminton, and even go on a cruise! If you prefer to just relax around a bonfire, you can do that free of charge!

If you are planning a beach getaway or barkada outing, consider Laiya as your destination. You can check out these four best resorts, or you can simply check out each resort along the coastline. Whatever floats your boat!
