The Magic of Playa Laiya


Playa Laiya is another luxury resort community, this time on the other side of Batangas and about a two-hour drive eastward from Tagaytay. Barangay Laiya in the town of San Juan is a famous tourist destination thanks to its stretch of white sandy beach, and Playa Laiya uses its generous slice of it to full effect. In Playa Laiya‘s exclusive Beach Club, guests can swim in the infinity pools, luxuriate in the jacuzzis, or simply stretch out and relax within the lush trappings of the beach houses and cabanas surrounded by green mountains and facing the serene waters of the Verde Island Passage, one of the world’s most diverse marine ecosystems. The clean lines of the club’s contemporary Asian tropical architecture contributes to the laid-back vibe Playa Laiya exudes, inviting visitors to unwind, let their hair down, and just let the sea breeze soothe their cares away.
