Laguna is almost synonymous with private pools. From team buildings and birthday parties to family getaways, the province is one of the top destinations for pool-loving groups as it abounds with all kinds of resorts—natural spring resorts, lakeside accommodations, and of course private pool resorts which are particularly a dime a dozen in this part of the south.
As such, in the new normal, Laguna is the perfect escape because it offers a lot of options to take a dip, go swimming, and celebrate good times intimately with people who matter without having to mingle with crowds. Its proximity to Metro Manila and other major provinces like Cavite and Rizal also make it highly attractive.
For your next getaway, here are the most amazing accommodations in Laguna with private pools!
Casa Tropica Villas, Calamba
If you look at Calamba alone, there is already an overwhelming number of options for private pool accommodations. However, Casa Tropica Villas manages to stand out with its sleek and artsy design and remote work-ready and pet-friendly facilities. The resort has creative touches like tropical plant prints and colorful murals, which are perfect photo corners! Moreover, it boasts fast WiFi and, once you’ve shut your laptop, amenities for play such as billiards, table tennis, darts, board games, and more.
The villas can accommodate up to 25 people. Rates start at PHP 18,000.
Lotuspod Bed and Breakfast, Bay
If you’re beach-deprived and missing Bali or Boracay, Lotuspod is a close enough alternative! Perfect for couples and small groups, the casitas are designed for utmost relaxation and privacy. Each casita is designed with a stone-built hot spring tub adjacent to a pocket garden, as well as a private terrace. Feel like you’re in a private onsen and soak up the tropical vibe while you’re surrounded by greens.
While the infinity pool is not really private, there are only three accommodation units so it would never be too crowded even at full occupancy.
Casitas range from PHP 8,500 to PHP 9,500.
The Lake House, Lumban
Go swimming and a whole lot more at The Lake House! Replenish yourself with clean air from the mountains and some peace of mind from the solitude of Caliraya Lake. The wooden cabins fit perfectly in the lush environment not only with their design but also with their use of solar power. That said, certain appliances such as a rice cooker, hairdryer, iron, and gaming consoles are not allowed. But that shouldn’t be a problem as there are many other things to keep you entertained, such as kayaking, paddleboarding, and fishing—in addition, of course, to swimming in the pool!
The Lake House is good for up to 12 guests. Rate starts at PHP 28,000.
Location: Lumban-Caliraya-Cavinti Rd, Lumban, Laguna
