Here we are again, planning another trip to Laiya in San Juan, Batangas for April 30-May 1. I've spent most of this afternoon surfing and searching for a good value-for-money resort. Thus far, I've narrowed our choices down to two. Inquiries with regard to the availability of rooms were already sent. I'll be crossing my fingers in anticipation of the replies.
In the meantime, here's a list of the resorts in the stretch of Laiya Beach. Just click on the name of the resort to get directed to their respective websites. Hope this saves you a lot of time :)
April 20, 2010 Update: Both of my initial choices (La Luz & Kabayan) are fully booked for the weekend of April 30-May 1. I went through my list above and contacted each of them. All the resorts are fully-booked as well, except for White Cove but they could not accommodate our small family (as they require a minimum of 5 meal packages on top of the room/cottage rental).
Just 10 minutes ago, I was able to get a reservation with Laiya Austria Beach Resort, which is just beside or is actually an extension of the Kabayan Beach Resort. I was able to book an executive room for Php 4,000. The contact person is Grace who is very nice and accommodating. She may be reached through mobile numbers 0918-3163386 and/or 09157459396.
Whee! I am so excited now!
