Caliraya Lake, Laguna is one of the most accessible travel destinations for Metro Manila residents wishing to take a relaxing break from the busy city life. Caliraya Lake, located in the town of Lumban, Laguna, is about 2 hours away from Manila and very near Laguna Lake. Visitors to Caliraya Lake are treated to a scenic view of the famous Laguna de Bai.
The lake of Caliraya is a man-made lake that used to be reserved for the elite. Today, it is an ideal place for spiritual retreats, company team buildings and wholesome vacations for the family.
Our company recently held our team-building activities at Caliraya Re-creation Center & Resort. Excitement gripped everyone just as we entered the vicinity of Lake Caliraya. Caliraya Lake provides a breath of fresh air among lush, green landscape set against the Sierra Madre mountain range.
Upon arriving at the lakeside, visitors will have to board a boat to get to the other side of Caliraya Lake. That’s where the resort facility is located. Caliraya Lake is not too big, but it sure is gorgeous and serene at the same time, perfect for people seeking peace and quiet.
Caliraya Re-creation Center & Resort is built and conceptualized specifically for spiritual retreats. There are facilities amenable to quiet solitude and contemplation. Although the resort is also a popular venue for company trips, such activities do not get too rowdy that they disturb other guests. The resort includes facilities for various activities, including a zip line, mudslide, swimming pools, and water sports activities such as fishing, kayaking, and jet ski.
The Caliraya Lake resort is a perfect destination for residents in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. It offers accommodation fit for families as well as small and big groups. There are designated hours for meals, served in all-you-can-eat buffet at the mess hall.
Overall, Caliraya Lake is a great getaway, meeting the needs of every guest. The best part is that resort employees are service-oriented and very courteous to guests.
How to go to Lake Caliraya
Directions: From Manila, there are two ways to go to Lake Caliraya. One is via South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). The other route is via Manila East Road. On a typically heavy-traffic day, it would be better to go by Manila East Road. This route would go through Antipolo, Teresa, up to Paete and Lumban, where Caliraya Lake is located. Coming from SLEX, go to Calamba, then Los Banos, up to Pagsanjan and turn to Lumban. As this is a very long and quite complicated journey to people not familiar with the area, it would be better to bring a physical map to navigate better.
