To beat the heat of summer we decided to have a day get away to a resort in the outskirt of Manila, Los Banos, Laguna. Splash Mountain Resort-Hotel was out choice. Just more than an hour from Alabang and we were off to a greener place. It is destination for family, friends and even company outings. It has several swimming pools which cater to all ages complemented with picnic huts, poolside kiddie slides and giant waterslides . According to its website the Resort can accommodate up to 3000 people. This Resort has Function rooms can hold up to 400 seminar participants and 350 wedding and party guests.
The entrance fee ranges from 60.00-180.00 pesos per head. Giant waterslides area has a higher price. In our case we opted for Giant waterslides because with this package we could explore the resort unlike with the ordinary entrance fee there is a limitation where the guests can go. Those guests that take giant waterslides have wristbands, it shouldn’t be removed while in the premises of the resort.
We didn’t know that it is a hot spring resort until I smell rotten egg while swimming. I was like where that coming from. Then we realized the water is coming from a hot spring because of the Mount Makiling. The water is lukewarm that I thought it was because the water is exposed to sunlight that makes the water warm.
Our niece enjoyed the water so much from the moment we arrived till the time we went home, she was in the pool. The only times that she would get out from the pool were to eat and pee. She and my sister took 9 slides from the tornado slide, she wanted more but my sister was so tired.
It was a great day to beat the summer heat. For those who want to have a last minute to enjoy the summer why not try Splash Mountain Resort.
