Bato Springs Resort of San Pablo, Laguna is a delightful spot for someone who loves spring bath and immersion in nature. It covers the river coming from Mt. Banahaw and the natural springs overflows beside the river bank.
Portions of the resort includes a swimming pool and the spring area but the latter is what the resort considers as their main attraction. I have only tried the spring when our family had our outing there.
Most of the areas surrounding the spring are covered by forest trees. Thus, even though the spring has been manually altered, the nature feel has been preserved and you don’t have to worry so much about the sun. However, that also means that the spring is not isolated from indigenous crawling creatures! Hahaha! But if you are a nature-lover, you will surely enjoy this environment.
The water there, which they said that comes naturally from spring, is so cold that it made my finger joints numb and my body shivering intensely. I had to actively move whenever I submerged my body into the water so I could outlast the cool temperature.
My most favorite is chilling beneath the flowing waters on the wall of rocks. The pressure is strong that the water seemingly was massaging my back but tolerable enough to stay in place for an amount of time.
Rooms for Improvement:
The resort can be more enjoyable if the facilities will be properly maintained in terms of aesthetics; the place is generally clean though especially in the most essential areas like the shower rooms. Some of us only have a complaint about the water flow in the shower rooms but in the men’s shower room I used, all is well.
