To be able to come up with a large list of Laguna resorts, we have to rely on our own family experience and online geekiness once again. The 3 of us, Ana, TJ and me, Sam, had to talk and recall the family's previous escapades during summer and Christmas Holiday seasons.
This paradise in the South of Philippines is our yearly destination when we celebrate our family reunion as in the whole clan who lives in Manila and some from Aklan. We've rented private pool resorts and sometimes public swimming pools and got accommodation and reservation during December on a yearly basis. This will help us get to a head start and shortlist of the best options for the Filipino people when it comes to visiting and getting booking for the best yet cheap resorts in Laguna. For starters, we will be listing those from Pansol and
I remember when I was a kid myself thinking of the times I hear the famous 70's Sampaguita song, "Laguna, ng ito ay marating ko, para bang ako'y nagbago, kakaibang damdamin ang iisipin mo". This is true, this is how I felt getting there... This is our family's quest to provide Pinoys a center for looking and searching for probably the largest listing of Laguna resorts online.
We'll start off with places like Calamba, Pansol and Los Baños. Mind you that there are now nature resorts to visit in Laguna as the Laguna waterfalls are great venues too. We will cover them out in another dedicated page as we've been to some that we want to share with you all.
In our travel Philippines page, our family have mentioned about the different resorts in the province nearest Metro Manila that we regularly visit. Based from our actual experience, we've come up with only 3 classifications below (private, public and hot springs). We've been to numerous waterfalls too and we don't classify them as nature park instead of just a resort in Laguna.

Waterfalls are focus-building blocks for our mind and soul. These places are special. They make us feel closer to nature, serenity, and an idea of absolute seclusion from the maddening crown, dust and noise pollution in the city. Unlike swimming pools, they don't have the dangerous chlorine added in the water and you can feel the all-natural relaxing effect of nature at its best.
Cold free-running waters flow
continuously from the waterfall brink or weir which is the source of H2O
to the catch basin or the pool pond. If you are somebody looking to
alleviate your nature tripping experience, our family highly recommends
that you bathe in natural mineral water. Go visit any waterfall nature park from our list below or exchange your summer fun for an overnight stay in any of the listed Laguna resorts above. Whichever, we're pretty sure you'll have a great day ahead of you.
Other points of interest in Laguna may come in hiking trails for mountainers, pasalubong extravaganza buys along the sidestreet (buko pie of Colette's and El Mare, woodcrafts of Paete, Liliw sandals, sampaloc candy of San Pablo) trivia about the place, food to eat, festivals celebrated in the different municipality and barangay and culture of the people. This has helped countless tourist couples and singles decide to live and retire to this majestic place. Some have bought their own real estate properties and built their houses there to stay for good.
