Santaya Resort review | Hot spring and events place

Nothing beats a great celebration in a private place especially when the space gives you that awesome vibe. Well, if you are looking for a great host with a touch of something different like in the form of a hot spring pool-type.. feel free to read along.

Santaya hot spring resort is located in Calamba, Laguna - Philippines. It is a flexible event place made for private celebrations and gatherings featuring their main attraction which is their natural hot spring presented and stored just like an ordinary pool.

So after 2 years of the pandemic, at last, we had the opportunity to celebrate 3 birthdays of our family members at a single party joined by 2 different clans. This was something to appreciate as we seldom do this with both sides at the same time.

THE VILLAS

The resort is divided into villas and we were blessed enough to have rented 2 which were connected with each other. The reception room is very neat and spacious as the theme of the place is South East Asian-inspired.

Here on the first floor, a karaoke machine can be used until 6:00 PM, a grilling station is also present, plus a back kitchen can be used whenever needed.

The second floor houses more rooms which also has its own mini lounge area near the balcony. I like how they are spot on with the details because they have a lot going on here outside the lounge and how simple the rooms are. I mean they are that intentional with the design which is something to recognize.

My favorite spot among all is their balcony which faces the mountainside. I mean why should I not? This space is just so ideal for that morning coffee to start that day right. Well, the weather was with me that time as those rain clouds passes through those mountain edges setting up that picturesque view. sigh*

Of course, lastly, featuring their main attraction which is their hot spring pools. Man, I usually don't dip in regular pools but this was an exemption. Aside from that its private and we did it at night, the natural hot water is just relaxing to experience.

The pool has its side for the kids and can go as deep as 5 feet for the adults. A shower area is also present on the side and the middle divider between the pools can be moved if necessary. One of the great things this place can offer is its strategic location of things. Since we were a big group, we almost did everything simultaneously.. some were belting their favorite songs on the karaoke, some were busy preparing and eating the food, while some were enjoying the hot spring pool.. all at the same time.

We did even have the opportunity to pull off something for the celebrants using this home projector and do some fun and games while in the "pool".

So as per experience, their intimate space and the exclusive vibe were some of their strongest features. You can even peek at the happenings below even from the 2nd floor! They are really recommendable for such gathering which sets a perfect host for a lot of things that is not limited to celebrations and reunions buts to even private meetings or maybe just a simple staycation.

Good job Santaya Resort! I am looking forward to dipping in that hot spring pool again. Even though the blankets were a bit short (haha), I still did have a nice rest. Thank you!
