Weekend at La Luz Beach Resort

As early as 7am last Saturday, we drove all the way to Batangas for our family excursion. We arrived at La Luz Beach Resort past 12pm. It was a looong drive (with traffic) but all our stress were gone as soon as we saw the beauty of the place.

We chose this because we've heard nothing but good feedback about it from friends. Here's a picture of our room.

This is a standard room good for 6 persons max. The room was very nice and clean. I just wish they had bigger beds. Standard room P1800/$36.


Moi before the massage. It was really good. I can't even force myself to walk to our room after. P250/$5 for the Whole body massage.

It was a place loaded with rocks. Am I right? You can see huge coral reeves and unusual kinds of fish 10 feet from the shore already so it's best to swim during high tide.

A perfect spot if you like snorkeling or diving. They provide life vests for free and snorkling gears are available for rent P100/$2 for 3 hours.

A very relaxed atmosphere....

Me and my favorite niece Ianna.

All in all...I really enjoyed our stay at the resort. Their staff is accommodating and the place is peaceful. You just have to read the resort's rules and regulations first because they do not allow their guests to bring food inside. Instead, they offer food packages which for me are reasonable enough :). Also, you have to reserve a few months before to ensure your slot. You can check their rates and packages here:

After that, we passed by Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Lipa, Batangas.

This Church was said to be miraculous because this is where the rose petals (that supposedly has images of Mary) event took place. This is still being investigated by the Church.

This is where I offered two candles for my mom =)

Next stop, we visited the convent of the Missionary Sisters of Catechism (Lipa, Batangas). Pau's uncle is a friend of the sisters so he brought us there to see their place.

They offered us food. I just got a few pictures though.

Pure mango shake + sweet potato

Italian espresso. I love it!

The sisters toured us to their poultry area.

The soon-to-be Our Lady of Guadalupe Home Care. Still a lot of work so let's help them pray that they receive a lot of help and that they finish their project successfully.

We decided to hear mass at the beautiful Cathedral of Lipa since we won't make it to the last mass in Manila. I was amazed with the size of the church...look!

I hope you enjoyed the few pictures I shared and reading my weekend escapade. What did you do this weekend? I'd love to know =D Ciao
