There are a lot of sights to see in Laguna and I have been there a lot of times, but it was only recently that I heard about its hidden jewel, Bato Springs Resort. Situated in the town of San Pablo, it’s a two hour drive from Manila. Before the spring was opened to the public, the flowing pool is formerly a river where several spring waters was coming out beside the river bank. People used bamboo shoots to catch the very cold water for drinking.
Last April, we decided to visit the resort. We packed clothes for an overnight stay, swimming gears, food, drinks and electronic gadgets. Of course, the kids didn’t forget to bring their ultrasone headphones with them; they can’t seem to go anywhere without their music.
We stayed in one of the resort’s air-conditioned huts where there were 4 bunk beds. We were 15 adults and 5 kids but the place was still big. Below our rented hut is a kitchen where you can cook and dine. Each hut has a ready barbecue grill, but you need to bring your own charcoal or you will have to go out of the resort to buy.
Bato Springs resort is a perfect venue if you are looking for a place to rest and relax close to nature. I would suggest though, not to go there during the holidays because there are a lot of people.
