Magnificent view of Mount Banahaw and “waterski alley” section of Caliraya Lake where Ferdinand Marcos was a regular water-skier.
Only 100kms from Metro Manila, it is a natural environment with clean air and cool elevated climate. Total lot area is 6700sqm with look-out section overseeing the lake.
Interaction with Guests
A caretaker family is permanently on-site to assist guests. They will do as much for you (or as little) as you wish.
The resort home faces onto a section of the lake known as “water-ski alley,” considered the best area of the lake for water-sports such as kite-surfing, windsurfing and, of course, water-skiing. Ferdinand Marcos obtained his world-renowned water-skiing skills in this location as he and his many friends and guests were frequent visitors. (The lot is the largest of 6 originally designated by former President Marcos for his most senior military generals. The property’s original owner was General Sarmiento.)
A nice boat man is available to escort you and your guests to and from your parking area. He is also gives great tours of the lake.

Caliraya Lake is located 100km south of Manila near Pagsanjan. It is a freshwater mountain lake situated 300m above sea level with a comfortable year-round temperature.
