Take an Extreme Adventure or Just Chill at Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa

The last weekend of February had us driving to UPLB to fetch Ralph who went on an overnight debate competition. Since February 25 was declared as an official holiday, we thought that it would be the best time to spend the night at a resort in Los Baños. It was a last minute decision so I failed to reserve us a room at the Makiling Onsen Spa. Thankfully, Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa was just a few hundred meters and a phone call away.



It was actually my husband first discovered Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa. He saw a viral post on Facebook about it and tagged me. I didn't realize that it was also located in Los Baños until our car drove past its signage along the highway. Luck was on our side when I booked because there were still a few rooms available. As the night passed, we saw guests coming and checking in the rooms beside ours.

Nemiranda ArtHouse


Nemesio Miranda is one of the highly-acclaimed contemporary artists of Angono, Rizal. He is known to introduce "Imaginative Figurism" in art. His family is a clan of artists. In fact, his youngest son, Don, already reaped awards at a young age of 12. His other kids have different styles in painting as well.

We went to their home cum art gallery one lazy Sunday afternoon. For a small entrance fee of 30 pesos, we were able to go around and see his, and even his kids', works. With us were two foreign tourists. One of them, a Japanese, showed us a Japanese book where Nemiranda's works were featured. He said that Nemiranda is very famous in Japan and that is the reason why he went to Angono and visit the famed artist's abode.
