Summer is far from over! This is actually the best time to get out, take a swim and enjoy with your family and friends. But the question is where to go this summer? Hmmmm...? If you're too lazy to go far, checkout one of the resorts near Manila where you and your friends will surely have an awesome summer geatway! I highly recommend La Virginia Leisure Park and Amusement Resort!
Just 2 hours away from Metro Manila is the sprawling and very lovely La Virginia Leisure Park and Amusement Resort located in the town of Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas. Set on an 8 hectare secluded property, it is one of the largest privately-owned resorts in Batangas.
Getting there via public or private transportation is very easy. Just follow the instructions listed on this Travel Tip.
La Virginia ResortUpon arrival at the resort, we were warmly welcomed by their friendly staff. Since we already have a reservation that was arranged by their marketing officer, checking in was a breeze.
But since we arrived very early and our room is still occupied, we just left our bags at the hotel's reception area then went around the expansive resort and had our lunch in their restaurant while waiting for the standard check-in time of 2:00 PM. We went back to the hotel at around 1:00 PM and our room is now ready. Awesome!
La Virginia HotelOur room is located at the 2nd floor of the hotel. It is very spacious and could fit up to 6 persons using extra beds. I am totally impressed as this is ideal for families or a group for friends wanting to be on the same room while enjoying their vacation.
All rooms at the hotel are basically the same. It has 2 queen-size beds with thick foam mattresses and coupled with clean white sheets, blankets and comfy pillows.
The room is also equipped with the much-needed amenities for a comfortable stay. There's an LCD Television set with cable channels, a refrigerator, cabinet, a breakfast nook, a telephone and an en suite toilet and bath.
On one side of the room is a sliding door the opens to a private veranda where you could see the stunning view of the surroundings. You may request for a room with a stunning view of Taal Lake or a room with a beautiful view of Mt. Maculot.
The toilet and bath is very basic but complete with hot and cold shower, water closet, sink and mirror. Clean and fresh bath towels and basic toiletries such as shampoo, bath soap and dental kit were also provided. I am satisfied!

Don't Miss the Sunset!If you love sunsets, don't miss the stunning sunset at La Virginia resort! We went to the accommodation at the far end of the resort where we enjoyed the magical view of the sunset. As the sun drowned into the mountains overlooking Taal Lake, its rays filled the sky with radiant and fiery colors. I was mesmerized as the sun slowly disappeared in the horizon, it's like a painting done right in front of me. Truly amazing!
