Laguna is known for its 'hot spring' resorts and the famous original-if-you-buy-it-at-the-right-store buko pie. The resorts there get very busy and often require reservation months in advance during the summer. We were lucky to have known a friend who knows a friend of a friend that knows this resort's owner. We had the place to ourselves, and we even got a discount.
Aqua Marc Resort
is located in Calamba, Laguna, about 1.5hrs drive from Central Manila.
