A lot of people think that camping means sleeping on hard rocky surfaces and waking up with a sore body the next day. While this can be true in some instances, there are campsites like La VeryOl’s who make it a point to provide a relaxing vacation while delivering an unforgettable camping experience.

I wanted to book an overnight stay the first time I saw a photo of the place on Facebook. So I did.  I booked a reservation for a Wednesday night and I had the place all to myself. This is my first solo trip by the way, and it’s in Tagaytay! Wooh. Hurray for me. Rock and roll.

Upon my arrival, I was awed by the view – series of mountains stretching far and wide. It made me think of my hometown in the Cordilleras. The air was fresh, and there weren’t a lot of houses. It gives off that ‘communing with nature’ kind of vibe.

Plus, La VeryOl’s have a lot of plants around. There are gumamela flowers, bamboos, bushes and a lot of other I-don’t-know-what-are-their-names plants. You better visit so you can check it out. They even have a small fountain so you’ll be hearing the sound of water at night – the kind that lulls you to sleep.

Oh boy. This was what sealed the deal for me. I mean, the first time I saw the Kawas in Antique, I wanted to go there, but it was too far. So when I saw that they had a Kawa hot bath here, I booked. Needless to say, it was perfect!

The first thing I wanted when I arrived in La VeryOl’s was to soak in the hot bath. But they had to prepare it first, so I had some time to look around the place, chill in my tent and eat tapsilog.

To prepare the Kawa hot bath, the staffs filled the kawa with water from the bamboo designed faucet. I love what they did there. Then, they will warm the water to your desired temperature.

Afterwards, they added some alagao, eucalyptus, gotu kola, oregano, mint leaves and some essential oils. You can choose your preferred oil. I chose herbal, and it smelled so good! They will also give you a dipper made from a coconut husk and a round rock for scrubbing off dead skin.
