The Laiya Austria Beach Resort

The Laiya Austria Beach Resort is located in the same compound as the Kabayan Beach Resort. It is a 3 minute walk to get to the beach, passing by the parking lot of Kabayan. 

It offers very basic accommodations but the friendly caretaker, Gener, and his wife are very able in making sure that the resort is clean and they attend to the needs of the guests. They allow guests to bring in and/or cook their own food and they provide eating and cooking utensils for the guests' use as well. Mineral water is also available at the resort.

There are only three executive rooms available, each with its own toilet and bath. Inside is a small refrigerator and own set of eating utensils. There are two double sized beds and an extra mattress is provided to sleep a maximum of 6 persons. We rented our room for PhP 4,000 a night.

Two trailer rooms, distinguished simply by their exterior colors, are also available for rent. These are just cool for barkadas or large groups of friends. I was told that call center agents are the usual occupants of these trailers. I got to take pictures of the interiors when the occupants checked out. Pardon the interior pics as Gener was still tidying up the rooms when I went inside to take the pics.

The pink trailer has a maximum capacity of 12. It has an extra small room and the whole trailer has 2 air-conditioners. It also has its own tiny kitchen and bathroom. It can be rented for PhP 5,000 per night.

The white trailer can accommodate 8-10 persons with a rate of PhP 4,500 a night. A common bathroom can be found outside the trailer.

All in all, I would say that the Laiya Austria Beach Resort offers a good alternative to the more exclusive resorts in Laiya. It is quite ideal for budget travelers looking for a quick out-of-town escapade.

We went there last year. We rented the 2 Trailer Trucks that Laiya Austria has for our Team Building. :)

Mang/Kuya Gener and his family were very accommodating to our group.
It was a nice and intimate experience for me and my team.
