Weekend Getaway at the Mountain Peak Resort

Sunday, June 13, 2010

There's a hidden weekend family getaway that we've discovered last Saturday where everybody had a blast! It's a pretty new private hot spring resort located 600 meters above sea level on the southeastern part of Mt. Makiling which offers breathtaking view of Laguna de Bay. The only challenge is getting there but once you reach the spot, you'll be glad you didn't yield to the fear of traversing a steep slope. Upon reaching the peak and seeing the place, the agitated and nervous feeling would soon turn to awe and excitement.

We rented the place for an overnight 12 hour stay . The owner however allowed us to stay a little longer from 6 PM to 10 AM that morning with no extra cost as a token to us for celebrating her birthday that day. She became really very accommodating when she learned that we used to be neighbors when they were still living in manila. The place houses two connected units, the rental for a 12hr stay at the topmost  unit (MP1) is 12k while where we stayed (MP2) at the lower part costs 10K. Both units has 4 air conditioned rooms and 6 bathrooms and several balconies and verandas, 2 adult pools and 1 kiddie pool and unlimited use of karaoke.

Going downhill is the easy part but going up there especially at night will scare the wits out of anyone but that's the thrill ride you need to experience and yes, its all worth it!!! Just forget the smell of burnt tires and the sound of screeching tires, LOL!

  6. Hi Gee,

    yup the 10k is for the whole unit with 4 rooms. I think they would allow 25 heads...
