Updated July 19, 2017

Right next to metro Manila on the Philippine island of Luzon is the province of Laguna. In the middle of this province, between Laguna Lake and Mount Makiling, sits the district of Barangay Pansol, about an hour’s drive from Manila. Resorts around Makiling offer access to hot spring waters with therapeutic properties.

These resorts range in size from a couple of hundred square meters (meant for families and small groups) to a couple of thousand (capable of accommodating large groups). Most Pansol resorts have swimming pools, lodging facilities and added activities and attractions.
