Bato Springs Resort, Laguna Travel Guide

bato springs resort

Imagine swimming in fresh flowing spring water surrounded by lush green trees. This is what Bato Springs Resort has to offer.

Tucked in the city of San Pablo, Laguna, it is frequently visited by weekend warriors in search of a relaxing environment.

For our friend’s birthday, she invited us to a pool party at the Bato Springs Resort. Hearing of a mini-falls and a refreshing swimming pool, we immediately accepted the invite and looked forward to the trip.

On the road near the resort, there are rows of trees which scream “awesome resort straight ahead.”

The Bato Springs Resort

True enough, the Bato Springs Resort exceeded my expectations. There were HUGE trees, clear water, and clean pools except for the occasional leaves falling from the trees.

Being so close to nature, one can also see dragonflies and butterflies here. With three swimming pools, the resort is a perfect weekend escapade, especially on a hot summer day.

Unlike regular swimming pools, rip-raps surround Bato Resort’s pools. This design gives the place a unique feel.

The top attraction of the resort is a man-made waterfall. The water was so cold. Standing under it will make you feel like one of those people who train and meditate under some falls.

From swimming to photo ops, the resort offers a one of a kind experience. Here are some of the best spots to take photos when you get the chance to go to this excellent place.

One of the pool’s edge is done in a riprap fashion

Not only are the pools here clear and clean, but the running water also overflows and creates a fantastic view of the impressive rip raps with the trees behind. The view gives off that ‘wow’ factor to your photos. Look at the samples below:

The highlight: man-made waterfall

Of course, let’s not forget the primary attraction of the resort, the man-made falls. It’s stunning. Just looking at it, makes you wanna say “Take a picture of me.” Although it’s freezing, the fantastic experience is worth the chills.

You can even swim to a cave

On the farthest pool, you can find a mini cave. Behind a curtain of water, the cave is a pretty good place to relax, chat and take photos.

Lots of huge trees

I mentioned this before, but I’ll repeat it, the trees here are colossal. The roots below the tree are also sticking out which gives the tree a better view.

Pools are all natural

Last but not the least, the pool. Don’t forget to take a photo by the pool. With the trees around and the clear water, why not?  This is what makes the resort worth the visit. Too bad though we enjoyed the two pools that we forgot to give the other pool a visit.
