It’s almost summer!
It was an early getaway before the holy week starts. Last March 27-28, we went to one of the famous resort in Laguna which is Caliraya Resort Club, Inc. A 7.6-hectare resort in the middle of the lake.
It was a company team building. Our accommodation and transportation are all free. Some brought their +1 partners along while others brought their family. The total headcount was around 60+. The more the merrier!
We left around 12PM and arrived at around 4PM. It was a long roller-coaster drive. Here’s a map that you can follow to get to Caliraya Resort, Inc.
Before you reach the main resort, there’s a 5-minute boat ride to cross the man-made lake.
Upon arrival you can either walk or wait for the resort’s jeepney that will take you to the different places of the resort. It’s a huge place that’s why a jeep is more convenient especially in the afternoon.

Here are the room rates:
After we checked in, we tried this mini zip line where you can either sit or stand.
We had our first meal in the resort. All meals are served BUFFET style.
There’s a certain time for every meal so be sure to get there on time. Leftovers and take-outs are not allowed.
Don’t worry you’ll never leave the table without a full stomach. Just eat as much as you can handle and don’t forget to bring your food stub for every meal which is included in your package.
After our meal, we went to the wave pool for a night swim.
I had to wear a life vest because the wave gets too strong. It’s hard to float even though I know how to swim.
The pool area is open until 10PM and closes during meal time.
There are 3 pools, a kiddie pool around 3 feet, a huge 5 feet wave pool and a pool divided by a 4, 10 and 12 feet pool. I stayed on the last pool the next day.
The day ended with a few drinks and some sang along with a guitar.
We had a full view of the lake and the resort at the top of the dining area building.
There’s also a Hanging Bridge.
We tried the mud slide.
I tried wall climbing.
Check out my Kalanggaman Island trip.
You can climb as much as you want for P150 for 30 minutes. The wall has three levels of difficulty, the second and third wall were inclined. Level one was the easiest since it’s a straight wall and I reached the top. I didn’t finish the second level though, but it was still another accomplishment for me.

Some of my colleagues played volleyball using that giant ball.
Others tried the zipline.
Taking biking to the next level, now on air! Don’t look down and just sing-along with the St. Francis Square theme song.
There are other things that you can do in Caliraya. There’s a separate fee for the amenities and facilities, here’s the list:
We had a lots of fun and it was a great weekend before we head back to the city again.
