When summer started, we noticed the rush of buses (tourist buses) on the streets of our humble town, all heading to one place a few kilometers from the poblacion. Heading to what has been (or maybe still is) the most frequented destination in Mataasnakahoy for the past weeks — La Virginia Resort.
So this will be another personal blog. I just want to share some of my favorite resort features in La Virginia from the last time I visited, well, that’s around three months ago. Perceiving I’m sharing the same favorites with the recent resort visitors.
I went there for a day tour and lucky enough, there weren’t too many people that day considering it’s a Sunday. Or maybe the area is just too extensive for me to see other guests in the resort.
Okay, let’s start off with —
The View of Taal Lake
Nature’s beauty never fails to amaze me. How about you? La Virginia Resort offers a generous view of Taal Lake. It brought serenity down to my soul. Naks. But seriously, it did.
The Buddha View Deck
I had a couple of pictures in front of the huge Buddha statue and when I used one of the photos as my Facebook profile picture, a couple of friends thought I went to Thailand! Haha. Nah, it’s one of the best backgrounds there for photo ops with friends. Make sure you have a picture with the Golden Buddha as your background. Panalo!
The Ifugao Village
I’m half-Batangueña, Half-Ilocana. That’s why I have close affinity to what’s there up north; not an Ifugao native though. This part of La Virginia features cottages which resembles the abode in Ifugao. It’s like you’re visiting the Tam-Awan Village in Baguio City.
The Infinity Pool
Because it gives you a good spot for the sunset. Imagine swimming in the infinity pool while the sun sets on the horizon.
The Hanging Bridge
I like bridges. It brings that certain shake on your nerves but at the same time, it challenges you to go on keep walking until you reach the other end.
The Tree House
See the best features of La Virginia Resort from the top of the tree house and you’ll wonder how it was landscaped to become what it is now. It was breathtaking up there. Perfect for some more picture taking. Say cheese!
The Zipline Rides!
I wasn’t able to experience the La Virginia Zipline Rides during my visit. Next time, I promise i will!
These are just some of the resort features that I love about in La Virginia Resort here in Mataasnakahoy. Batangas is indeed blessed with such beautiful destinations and it makes us proud being among the top provinces to visit here in the Philippines.
