Dalitiwan Resort, Majayjay, Laguna
With the scorching summer heat, it would be a great relief to take a swim in a cold spring pool. Dalitiwan Resort in Majayjay, Laguna is a perfect destination for those seeking respite from the unbearable temperature. Dalitiwan Resort has a man-made pool but the water in it comes from the cold springs of Mt. Banahaw. The water in the swimming pool is all natural, untreated/unchlorinated. This cold spring resort is a great getaway for families because of the amenities they provide - cottages for day trips and overnight stay, grilling area, and of course, the swimming pool.
Mini-falls in Dalitiwan Resort
Aside from the man-made swimming pool, Dalitiwan Resort also has a natural attraction - the mini-falls where one can stay under for a "back massage." Beware though, the water is sooooo cold! We were able to tolerate the cold temperature of the waterfalls and we enjoyed staying beneath it. But honestly, we were not able to swim in the pool because the water was so bitingly cold.
Enjoying the waterfalls
While in the resort, you will be able to appreciate nature. Lush greens and breathtaking views surround the area and you may momentarily forget the stresses of everyday life.
We also amused ourselves by having henna tattoos. The service is offered in Dalitiwan Resort and it's quite surprising actually because you would expect to find henna tattoo service in popular beach destinations such as Boracay and Puerto Galera. The cost of henna tattoo in Majayjay, Laguna ranged from PhP 50-300, depending on the size and complexity of the design.
