Batangas is often the go-to beach destination for those living in Manila and nearby cities. It is so because of its ivory shores and clear waters, perfect for bumming around, swimming and other similar activities. One of the places in the province to visit is Laiya.
Laiya is just a barangay in San Juan, Batangas. But just for clarity, over the years, it has become synonymous with the entire southern coast of the municipality. Resorts that are located in neighboring barangays are also being marketed as a Laiya resort. For example, La Luz Beach Resort is, in fact, within the territory of Brgy. Hugom, but it is often tagged by travel agencies as a Laiya property.
After spending time on the beach, getting a tan, swimming, snorkeling or diving, you’d want a comfortable place to stay to regain your energy to do it all over again the next day. Before you go on your weekend getaway, it is important to look for an accommodation that fits your budget and other characteristics that complete your vacation.
Just like other places in the province, Laiya has a variety of resorts and guesthouses for all types of travelers. You’ll easily find cheap but comfortable places to stay or high-end resorts for an ideal staycation. If you just want a room with a bed and toilet, you don’t have to spend extravagantly. You can find cheap but comfortable guesthouses in Laiya. For those who are willing to pay more, you’ll find plenty of mid-range to high-end resorts in this part of Batangas.
When searching for resorts in Laiya, pay attention to the details and fine prints. Some resorts look cheap but mandatory meals are not included. These meals can take much of the cost.
