A comfy queen-size bed with luxurious sheets and some real breathing space makes a difference. Even if it may just be a few nights away from home, where one lies down to either think or rejuvenate will spell the difference between getting rest and just living the same routine. Plumeria’s Standard Room comes with the basic creature comforts – toiletries, cable television, free Wi-Fi, a personal fridge, and complimentary breakfast.

Because I’ve lived in one room my entire life, working at the same table that you use to pay bills at and eat at, it’s going to be nice to have actual space.

MOUNT MAKILING  (Approximately 1 hour from Plumeria Hotel)

Mount Makiling in Laguna is a legendary mountain that has inspired numerous tales, poems, and legends owing to its mystical dweller and protector – Maria Makiling. Mount Makiling is an inactive volcano that rises to approximately 1,109 meters above sea level and stands at about 3576 feet. It is a forest reserve under the official stewardship of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). You can explore Mt Makiling through the UPLB College of Forestry and Natural Resources. The mountain is ideal for hiking, camping, trekking, mountain biking, and bird watching. Approximately 2,048 species of plants can also be found here.

Mt. Makiling hosts man-made attractions such as the Makiling Botanical Garden and The National Arts Center; its natural attractions include the mountain’s highest peak (the Peak II), the Flat Rocks, and the Mud Springs.

Mount Makiling

Day tourists/trekkers usually explore the relatively easy trail of flat rocks and mud springs; hikers and experienced mountain climbers ascend the Peak II and stay there overnight. However, the forest management recently banned staying overnight at Peak II for safety and security reasons. You can only stay there until afternoon and you must descend before nightfall (day hikes only).

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
