Last Sunday, we had an outing to Splash Mountain Resort in Los Baños, Laguna—about two hours away from Manila. Venturing in this resort is best for those who are looking for a kind of adventure that’s friendly for everyone in the family. Activities done here will surely make your vacation memorable and meaningful. 🙂 Read on for a host of things you need to know when planning for a visit.

Top 5 Things You Need to Know When Visiting Splash Mountain Resort (Los Baños, Laguna)

1. Room Rates and Reservation

Splash Mountain Resort boasts a variety of excellent lodging options, all housed in its tastefully developed outbuildings. Guests can choose to stay in for the night or just book a room for the day. Room reservations can be done via email or phone call. The room rate is the same for both day and night. This means that even if you are not staying overnight, you’re still charged the same amount. Check-in time is 2pm and check-out time is 12nn the next day.

For more info about the room rates, visit their website.

2. Food

Splash Mountain Resort has a restaurant that serves American, Filipino and Chinese food and it’s open from 6AM to 10PM. If you don’t prefer eating food from the inside restaurant/cafe, you are free to bring your own. Selected items such as alcoholic drinks and softdrinks incur some corkage fee though. You may also grill seafood, meat and vegetables, as charcoal grills are available for rent. Moreover, they can accommodate kitchen service.

Note: They offer complimentary breakfast for occupants of the Suites and Oasis hotels. No need to worry about breakfast. Whew! 🙂

3. Swimming Pool

For me, the main attraction in this resort are the swimming pools—19 of them, in various sizes catered to all ages! This is a great place to experience natural hot springs from Mount Makiling and the relaxing breeze of the countryside.

There are activity pools with waterslides designed for both children and adults. Also, the giant waterslide will be opened in the summer of 2015, so watch out!

With regard to swimming attire, the resort management is not strict. Any clean and decent shorts (not briefs for men) and shirts can be worn while swimming. That said, you don’t need to feel shy about wearing tight swimsuits (two-piece or a maillot) and short trunks. 😛

4. Other Facilities

Aside from swimming pools, Splash Mountain Resort has a gym, a basketball court, a tennis court, and venues for team-building activities and events such as weddings, debut parties, and seminars that accommodate up to 400 guests. (The Splash resort phase I has a capacity of 1,000 to 3,000 guests.) Plus, they are open for an exclusive day tour package for the whole resort to include lodging, swimming and food.

5. Entertainment

Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you have to completely unplug from the world. Wireless free internet (wi-fi) is available in the lobbies of Splash, Suites, Oasis and City of Springs hotels. Surf the net all you want. 🙂

For those who want to sing, the good news is that they have a coin-operated videoke in the resort area. If you’re staying in a function room, you can choose to also rent a mobile videoke setup at the convention building in front of the giant waterslides.

A convenience store slash souvenir shop is nearby, where you can buy gifts for your loved ones back at home.

Wrap Up

Dreaming of sun-kissed days on a resort? You’re in luck. Splash Mountain Resort is open all the days of the year. Whether you already live in a steamy locale (like we do) or are just looking forward to a sunnier climate, you’re likely going to both beat the heat by swimming into the colder pools or relax with warmer pools here. Hate the sun? Stop by in the late afternoon or early evening. Their gates are also open for night swimming.

Another good thing is that this resort is easy accessible. For directions on how to go to Splash Mountain Resort, read this.

    We planned to visit this place years ago. However, it never transpired. Your post somewhat gave me another push to plan it again.

    Wow, 19 pools??? That’s crazy! Sounds like a great getaway place, but at the moment i cannot even think of another sunny place, Surabaya is boiling hot i just want to lie in the fridge all day…

      Haha yeah, the same is true here in Manila. But now since it’s nearing December, we can almost experience the “amihan” season when cool winds are more likely to blow through.

    This looks like a great place to stay especially for families. My son would love the pool with all the slides and stuff.

    Dude 19?! WOAH!!! That’s a lot! The fact that they allow you to bring in food and let you grill them and there is a karaoke machine then, I got to say that this indeed caters to the needs of a Filipino barkada/ family.. Karaoke and grilled food is love! awesome 😀

      You’re welcome, Cindy! The resort is spacious and I never felt like I was stuck somewhere and seeing the same group of people in the same places (like some resorts start to feel).

      Laguna has plenty of resorts in the same area placed side by side. Seriously, you will have a hard time deciding where to go. Here’s one reco so you can have Splash Mountain Resort already shortlisted. 🙂

      You’re welcome. 🙂 The slides were most enjoyed by my sister and mother who even went to the point where they took the slide at the same time (my mom sitting at the back). #FUN #GOODTIMES

      Yes, you’re right with that observation. During our visit, it was almost like we had reserved the entire Oasis section to our group since we were the only people there. Privacy/seclusion in the quiet is one advantage of going to this kind of resort during non-peak season. 🙂

        It was actually raining in the afternoon. That didn’t stop my family from swimming under the rain. Good thing they didn’t get sick, haha. I was just scared of thunder and lightning (so I better be out of the water). 🙂

    This looks like an amazing place for the whole family to visit. I would love to spend a couple days there with the family. Thanks for sharing.

      You’re welcome, Rebecca. Check out the hotel rates posted on their website. It’s best to inquire by reaching out to them if they have promotions ongoing so you can have the best deal. 🙂

      This was also our first time to visit. First stop was Oasis and we thought that was the only pool at the place (so why bother to go farther from our house…), then we walked around and discovered the other pools and facilities in the same resort! Waaah 🙂

    They have numerous swimming pools! I checked their site and the room rates were cheaper than the others, considering that this is a nice place

      I was also surprised that the entrance fees are super affordable. If you’re not staying in and just renting a cottage/table for your belongings and dining, an outing here won’t put even a small dent in your wallet. 😉

    Yay! Thank you for sharing this. Now I have an idea where to go in Laguna for our summer outing. I’ve seen this place already because we go to Quezon once a year so it’s along the high way naman.

    It’s been awhile since I last heard of the place – and I think I’ve never been there myself, lol… always at the wrong time to even go there but I always wanted it – seems fun.
