hot pools of pansol

The stormy weather these days should not deter one from taking a dip into a pool, most specially if it is in Pansol, Laguna. The hot springs from Mt. Makiling provide the soothing waters which envelop one’s being after wading into the pools.

Because of the warm waters, resorts have been long established in the area to provide relaxation and rejuvenation to many for a minimal fee.  Yet some homes have also catered to tourist trekking to the area who want to have the pool just for themselves at a slightly higher cost. Just drive to the main roads of Calamba, and one gets to see dozens of men with small “karatolas” (signages) which will direct you to these homes.

But one may call Mang Rudy (0919-8636952/0922-6398849) to show around the hottest resort homes of Pansol. They’re “hot” not only because of the heated pools, but because these places are the town’s poshest in terms of architecture, accommodation and amenities.
