Caliraya Weekend Resort Home

Take a journey that pays a priceless moment. Welcome to the Weekend Resort Home in Caliraya.

A two-hour drive away from Manila lies a very beautiful spot in Laguna, where serene beauty of nature and calmness intertwining everything and becomes music to your soul.

Consider it yours for a day or two or more, book here.

The lake is beside Mount Banahaw, known to locals as “holy mountain” and a place of pilgrimage. It is also one of the country’s highest peaks and a protected national park.

The Space (Excerpt from AirBnB)

Enjoy lakeside retreat situation in a private lagoon with 35m waterfront on Caliraya Lake, considered the country’s best for watersports.

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.

Guest Access
Enjoy natural and healthy activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, badminton, volleyball, camping and sight-seeing. There are 50-60 coconut trees, enjoy lots of buko juice.

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 Neighborhood

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.)

Getting Around

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.

Other Things to Note

The resort home features a full kitchen, 2 toilets and baths, open dining room and sleeping area for 10 people (2 king-size beds, 1 queen-size bed and 1 pull-out).

The lot has 35 m lakefront coverage situated in a private lagoon. It is a natural environment that features 50-60 coconut trees plus mahogany, narra and other varieties. It is terraced into 3 main zones. The lakefront has 2 open grassy areas for lakeside activities such as swimming, boating and fishing, as well as badminton and volleyball. The middle zone is designed as a camping area and able to handle a generous group of tents with an open-air fireplace. The uppermost zone of the lot features a magnificent view of a large section 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. The lake gained a reputation as playground of the rich-and-famous during Marcos’ time as the leader and his many guests and friends were frequent visitors. Today, most property owners are various high-profile business people, foreign expatriates, prominent celebrities, retired diplomats and the like.

The lake is beside Mount Banahaw, known to locals as “holy mountain” and a place of pilgrimage. It is also one of the country’s highest peaks and a protected national park.

How to get there

South on SLEX – Take the Calamba exit (about 45km from Manila) and go east towards Los Banos. Continue all the way to Pagsanjan. The road hits a T-intersection at Pagsanjan Church and turn left going toward Barangay Bagong Silang. When you see the sign to Caliraya Lake turn right and follow a winding road upward and travel about 10 kms to see the lake. Look for a resort called Lagos Del Sol on your left and enter to park your vehicle. The entire trip is about 100 kms from Makati.


Summerific Staycation at St. Agatha Resort


My great summer bonding experience with my family at St. Agatha Resort in Sta. Rita, Guiguinto, Bulacan 30 to 40 minutes away from Quezon City. The Hotel-Resort isn't that fancy but it offers  happiness to every individual who "stay and visit" the place. Hotel Rooms are huge that can accommodate 4 to 8 guests and their cottages  also houses 8 to 10 guests with cable TV and mini bar, sounds cool right?
