We followed the directions provided by La Luz. When already in Laiya, a row of resorts can be seen, some were familiar names i have encountered when searching the net for alternative resorts in case we can’t get La Luz. La Luz was i think the 2nd to the last resort on that strip (Palm Beach was the last). There was really a rough road that goes way up. Good thing is, the road is already under construction and will be cemented soon. For sure that project is because of the elections 😛
Upon arriving the resort (there were already many vehicles parked), i was looking for the information/reception area. It was downstairs. It was not elderly friendly (think going upstairs). I hope they do something about that in the future.
Here are some pics of what’s around on our way to the dining area:
Waiting area (many big red ants roaming around the seats and table)
Mini playground for kids
Bikes for rent
Photos I took of Kelsea while enjoying the sand, the kayak and the fresh air.

The resort guests dinner was served around 7 PM. We were able to enjoy the buffet until 8:30 PM. My mom, dad and aunt already scheduled a massage after dinner. I also wanted that! Reservation was done in the resort office where you will inform them the time and place. Cut-off for reservations is 8:30 PM. Mom and Dad had their massage in our loft while my aunt and I chose to be pampered in the cabanas. It was very relaxing because of the fresh air while watching the stars in the sky and listening to the waves. I told myself I won’t fall asleep but I did hehehe. Massage was only p250 for an hour. It’s up to you to give additional tip 🙂
I wanted to wake up early to enjoy strolling along the beach before having breakfast so i woke up Mark and Kelsea (who was asleep for 7pm til 6am – she must be tired from yesterday’s swim and play) to join me. We were joined by my 10 yr old cousin Tintin. We were able to pass by the big rocks at the end of the beach resort and view the private beach house of the La Luz owner. Here’s a family shot of ours taken by Tintin.
Breakfast was served 7 AM. I love Filipino breakfast! We were all full and enjoyed the free flowing Kapeng Barako. After eating, Mark and I still had a 30-minute dip in the beach with my aunt Juliet. We had fun and funny pics there but they’re in my aunt’s cam. She must have really enjoyed our stay there wanting to capture her having fun in the water 🙂
Check-out is 11 AM so we already prepared our things and transferred them in the cabanas (were we had our massage last night) wherein guests can still stay there for free the whole day before checking out.
