-= BATO Spring Resort =-
« on: June 19, 2009, 09:17:01 PM »
BATO Springs Resort is a perfect venue to unwind with nature, a place that has been spared by modernization, a natural home ground for butterflies, dragonflies and birds. It is one of those places in the South of Manila where you can bring your friends over and relish the natural beauty of Laguna. It is on the border of Laguna and Quezon, on the foot of Mount Banahaw, about 2-hour drive from Manila and 15 minutes away from San Pablo City proper.

Its main feature is its clear and sparkling river directly coming from Mount Banahaw, plus the trees which will make it very difficult to tell which time of the day it already is. The resort features two man made falls which are channeled into a large swimming pool and streams around it. The main pool is about 4 feet deep and has a groto/cave hidden with a stream of falling water, water flows from this to a second pool which is about 2 feet deep. This pool has two water falls around it where you can sit and have your back massaged by the flowing water.

tip sakin ng care taker, sat at sun daw maraming guest. kaya mas oks pumunta ng weekdays. kami nga lang guest ng pumunta kami, last week. oks din ang chibug, pwede ka pa luto ng gusto mo. imagine 1 whole chicken for 350 petot lang.
