Punta de Fabian |A Bizarre Overlooking View of Laguna de Bay

Are “Ber” months also keeping you off from exploring islands, beaches, and mountains as there is always a possibility of getting stranded???

Why not explore nearby resorts, I recommend Punta de Fabian in Baras, Rizal for its infinity pool showcasing the spectacular, panoramic, and breathtaking view of the countryside and the Laguna de Bay.

Directions from Metro Manila

getting there

Once you’re there tell the security guard that you’re up for a day tour. He will ask for an ID and will let you in. The resort is located uphill and the road is too steep, you need to walk if you don’t have a car. I’ve read from another blog that there is a shuttle service, but it is not available during our stay.

As of December 2018, day tour rate is 350php inclusive of the entrance fee, use of swimming pools, tables and benches. Starts from 8am up to 5pm.

VERDICT

Not worth staying overnight considering the rates and the resort doesn’t have much to offer except infinity pool and overlooking view of Laguna Lake.

If you opt for an overnight stay to a resort with the same ambiance, try Luljetta’s Hanging Garden.

But all in all, we had a great time and enjoyed our trip so much. Serene, relaxed and memorable.
