Chilling in Hot Springs of Pansol

We have been wanting an out of time get together as a team, and I guess this has been long overdue.  So i grab my feet and set my mood for another weekend trip all the way south to Pansol, Laguna. The home of the famous “Hot Spring Resorts”

Pansol is part of Calamba and a component city of Laguna. Situated 54kms south of Manila and as mentioned popular for numerous hot spring resorts and of course the hometown of our national hero Dr Jose Rizal.  It lies on the northern slopes of Mount Makiling, a dormant volcano, reason for its therapeutically hot springs.

There were only four souls who confirmed that we are pushing through. So we hop on the bus bound to Pansol located in Quezon City and paid less than Php 100.00. The trip going to Pansol is a bit long maybe because it’s a Saturday and we left late in the afternoon.  We arrived at around 4 o’clock in the afternoon at RockPoint Resort.  If you opted to stay in the same resort just tell the bus driver to drop you at Sol Y Viento, walk 500 meters and you will find signage that will lead you to the resort.

I just had my braces adjusted so eating is somehow inconvenient for me. I just love my buddies as they were so considerate :) I had to eat slower than usual.

After filling up our empty tummies we went back to the resort for a hot-cold splash on the pool.  The resort is just perfect if you want a relaxing ambiance. Soothing music playing all over the place. If you want to unwind and forget about the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila, i think this is one great place to stay.  The resort itself is designed for staycationers, everything you need is here: spa, fitness gym, meditation garden, restaurant and lounge, karaoke room and of  course the two hot spring water pools. On top of that, they serve great foods too.

I deserve this break so much and I am grateful to my weekend buddies for making this happen. A simple resort can turn out to be a great escape to heal some brokenness and be ready for the next chapter. Pansol carved that in  my heart. This is my first time in Pansol and definitely not the last!

The resort is highly recommended for friends and family outing. Make sure to have your reservations ahead of time. You can visit their website for futher information.
