Are you planning for a week end getaway and stay away from city’s air pollution? But fed up on searching online where to stay? I recommend Hidden Valley Spring and experience a tropical rainforest adventures. Trekking to Hidden Falls. Swim on a warm pool. Soak in a cold water fall at Soda pools I and II. Enjoy and swim with quiet surrounding at lovers pool.
How to reach Hidden Valley? Hidden Valley is located at Barangay Calauan, Alaminos Laguna. 86 Km South of Manila or Marikina City area. I drived all the way to SLEX then took the Santo Tomas, Batangas exit. If you depart from Marikina at 04:30 Lt, allowing only one breakfast stop over, You will arrived Hidden Valley spring resorts at 07:15 LT. They start receiving guest at 07:30 LT. Take note, Don’t go late in order not to miss the morning view, I can say it is the best time to be there while still very quiet.
How much do you need for a day tour? Adults – $50 or 2,500 Pesos Kids below 11 YO – $25 or 50% Off discount. Prices includes 1 Buffet lunch between 11:30 to 14:30 Lt and 1 Snack time from 15:00 to 17:00 Lt. The best time to view the hidden falls is when the weather is dry and during the morning. Its a 15 to 20 minutes trekking. While enroute you’ll pass the lovers pool. The coldest pool in the valley. It’s about 8 minutes walk from soda pool II.
All the pools have a very clear spring overflowing waters, walled by and finished with brick-stone, It has sandy bottom. You can see it through the bottom. See our trekking route: https://youtu.be/S5ifKgqT37c Part 1 and https://youtu.be/OchFVaSoPIo Part 2
The hidden falls is located in between rocks. The water is really clear and cold. They preserved it well by not allowing anyone to take a bath. you can only hear the sound of the water falls and birds humming around.
Hidden valley spring resorts entrance is about 3 kms from the national highway in Alaminos, Laguna. The area’s asset offers a real greenery that means fresh air.
If you want a real fresh and rain forest experience, I recommend Hidden Valley Spring resorts. It’s a quiet place, People who work there are hospitable and respectful. It’s really peaceful, a perfect getaway weekend. Next time, We’ll try to stay overnight.
