It’s been 2 years since we haven’t gone for a staycation due to a busy schedule and circumstances. We’ve been into some places before and Caliraya got my attention and immediately booked online. And truly I and my family had a relaxing and well-spent birthday treat again. And I will share my honest review of this place.
Caliraya Ecoville Recreation and Farm Resort are envisioned to be a premier agri-tourism center in Laguna wherein it promotes organic and aquaponic farming, farm-to-table lifestyle, integrated with amenities and activities that support relationship building and quality time with families and friends. Indeed a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life to get back to nature. One can bask in the cool and windy weather of Caliraya while enjoying Filipino comfort foods that are cooked using naturally cultivated ingredients.
Where is it located? Caliraya Ecoville Recreation and Farm Resort are at Lumban – Caliraya – Cavinti Rd, Cavinti, Laguna. And about 2 and a half to 3-hour drive from Makati. The most popular route is via SLEX, exiting Calamba thru the Bucal By-pass road of Greenfields development, and exiting to Los Banos. From Los Banos, continue to drive-thru Sta Cruz and finally Pagsanjan, before going up the hill of Caliraya.
ABOUT THE ROOM
The rooms are clean and well maintained. Kasi para sa ating mga travelers cleanliness and comfort were rated the most critical factors in the hotel. I’ll give them 5 stars (yan ang highest ko haha). There was a minor issue sa comfort room pero it was immediately attended to ng staff nila pero malinis and mabango ang rooms. Gumagana ang heater. Funny karamihan ng napupuntahan namin medyo hindi nagana ang heater which is sobrang disappointing lalo na sa mga ayaw maligo sa umaga at malamig.
ABOUT THE FOOD
(Unfortunately, I don’t have the chance to take photos kasi sobrang gutom na nung dinner and busy na kami nung breakfast. When I booked online, breakfast is already included. Masarap ang food, served hot and the price is just right which is good for 2-3 persons per serving.
THE RESORT AND ECOVILLE FARM
If you are looking for a place that will give you a moment of peace, I highly recommend Caliraya Resort because of it’s relaxing scenery that will calm your inner being. Far away from all the noise and smoke.

And also discounts will be applied as well. All booking platforms don’t acknowledge any privilege. You can bring along prepped meals, drinks and any other else. They provide vanity kits for the guests. The TV is cable ready with TV- plus connection. Free use of swimming pool din, they provide towels naman pero I suggest bring your own narin. Perfect bonding place ito for a family who are looking for fun like riding sa horse, kayaking, and fishing.
