Hidden Valley Springs Resort in Laguna is a tropical rainforest paradise located in Calauan town. Many people mistakenly think that Hidden Valley is located in Alaminos, Laguna but it is only the entry point to the resort; its actual location is in Calauan, Laguna. The natural springs and waterfall are surrounded by lush vegetation, including approximately 153 species of plant life and towering Amlang trees reported to be more than 300 years old.
Six natural pools can be enjoyed by guests of Hidden Valley, including two shallow kiddie pools and one natural jacuzzi. The other pools are:
The lovers' pool. It is located in a secluded area, offering privacy to honeymooners.
Soda Pool. Also known as the massage springs, these pools have a forceful flow like a jacuzzi, so you can just lie underneath the waters to experience water massage similar to European spas. You also have a choice between cool and warm water.
What was the origin of these natural springs? It is believed that hundreds of centuries ago, a 300-feet deep crater was formed during a volcanic upheaval (Hidden Valley is wedged betwwen Mount Makiling and Mount Banahaw). Consequently, more than a hundred natural springs of varying temperatures surfaced, composed of pure mineral waters that are said to be medicinal and rejuvenating.
Aside from swimming, another activity is hiking/strolling in the surrounding rainforest. Be one with nature and savour its peace and serenity: Follow the path to scattered springs and the "hidden waterfall" through wooden bridgeways and stoned pathways.
For your dining needs, Hidden Valley has an outdoor/open air restaurant that serves buffet meals. During lunch and afternoon snacks, guests are serenaded and entertained by a band of folk singers. And if weather permits, the tables and chairs are set on the garden beside the restaurant for a starlit dinner.
RESORT FACILITIES: Warm & cold natural swimming pools, gazebos (first come, first serve), air-conditioned dressing rooms, shower & lockers, restaurant and cafe, souvenir shop, air-conditioned room accommodation with private toilet & bath, hot & cold water, verandah or deck providing view of the rainforest.
