It is not often that you find a luxurious resort complex, set in amazing scenery on the shores of a lake, that is equipped with fantastic amenities and only just over 100kms from Manila.
Mountain Lake Resort is such a place.
Set in lush and green surroundings beside a beautiful lake, Mountain Lake Resort is an amazing venue that is bound to have an appeal for all age groups within a family as well as be a great venue for businesses looking for somewhere to stage a company get together and team motivation/bonding days.
The vast majority of the facilities are appealing to all visitors, and can be selected on an ‘a la carte’ basis to suit your motivation as well as your pocket and we will cover those shortly. One of the truly unique appeals of Mountain Lake, is the amazing Arnold Palmer designed 18 hole golf course which plays in the settings of Caliraya Lake and surrounding mountains, around which the whole resort is set and is not only spectacular but a highly enjoyable, if not challenging, course to play. Of course if your not into golf in any way, then the other eclectic amenities and activities are stupendous.
The fishing is also great, and you can catch very tasty Dory fish and once you have, the resort will have them cooked for your evening meal – you could say that was a truly delicious feature!
There is so much to do and occupy you, that is difficult to know where to start, but whether you a little lazy or highly active, there are a lot of activities (rates depends per activity) and obstacles course (P150/Head) to choose from, rest assured you will never be bored!

That gives you a good flavour for the place and of course there are more leisurely activities such as a gentle stroll through the magnificent gardens or a walk across the hanging bridge (not for the faint hearted as it sways quite a bit!). Another relaxing pastime for the nocturnal visitor, is the Astro Camp; best experienced around 3am for a wonderful view of the cosmos.
The hotel itself has winning amenities and everything you might expect from a multiple star facility, including:
● Restaurants on-site
● Souvenir Corner
● Car Parking
● Daily Maid Cleaning
● Conference Room
● Night Security
In the main body of the resort there are a selection of excellent quality guest rooms that range from Standard to Superior including Family Rooms, but far more uniquely, you can also book various size cottages that will sleep between 4-10, or, my favourite, a luxurious Boat House which extends on stilts into the water and includes a waterside balcony – a memorable experience.
There are also Glamping Tents for 2 or 4 people. Mountain Lake Resort really does have it all and no matter what you expecting from a visit you will not leave disappointed and will simply be thinking when you can get back there for another visit!
