I consider it as my birthday getaway. But if truth be told, we’re just obliged to visit
the place for the Clan’s (DH’s side) forthcoming grand reunion. La luz has long been in my bucket list but
never had the chance to visit. Glad that
we were tasked to inspect the place which pressed DH on to grant me my birthday
wish. That is, spending my birthday in La
Luz Beach Resort. The simple ocular
inspection turned out to be our brief vacation. An accidental birthday getaway! Our nephew came with us along with his wife
and son. They were our guests cum co-inspectors! But unlike us (DH, DS and DD),
this young family chose to stay only for a day.
La Luz Beach Resort, for all I’ve heard of, is one of the most beautiful if not the best resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. It isn’t too far from Metro Manila, (just about 4 hours drive more or less ) and it offers packages that could suit our reunion’s needs. Thus, the getaway! .. Or rather, the ocular inspection! Armed with the clan’s go signal, we were set to pay the fee to reserve. But we had to call it off . You’ll find the reasons why!
Not too far is the reception hall. It’s a “hall” of pebbled soil flooring and bamboo benches to rest on while sipping the Gulaman welcome drinks. The welcome drinks are included in our food package that cost P1,350./pax for overnight guests and P900./pax for day tour guests. After registering on the resort’s log book, we headed down the steep stairs leading to the resort proper. While stepping down, I thought of my MIL, the clan’s grand matriarch, as she would certainly have to exert extra effort climbing up and down that high steep stairs. We are 100% sure, she would complain.
