A Relaxing Stay in a Mountain Resort

We had a refreshing vacation in a resort nestled on top of a mountain, overlooking the enchanting views of Laguna de Bay and Mount Makiling; and with uniquely designed pools of pure mineral water coming from the mountain. They also have outdoor hot-spring indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi. I do not really swim in pools because I hate chlorinated water but here the water is pure mineral/spring water ranging from cold, lukewarm. I spent long time soaking in the lukewarm pool and hot Jacuzzi. It was so relaxing! What relaxing thing did you do lately?

is the shape of the mountain still looking like the profile of Mariang Makiling? when we went them in late '90s, i saw the shape of the mountain as the side view face of a lady sleeping.

@salonga that sounds wonderful! I am happy you had such a relaxing time. I haven't done anything to relax lately....I think I have forgotten how to relax or what being relaxed feels like.

Oh dear, I know for sure why. But don't worry, all these will sure come to pass. God has always a good purpose in everything that he allows to happen to us whether good or bad.

@salonga , I guess so, it comes down to that tests or lessons thing, but there is a reason.

Wow, that's a very nice resort. You have a choice of hot and cold pools to soak in. You really have enjoyed it so much, basing from the pictures. We haven't gone to any resort yet since summer began . We forgo of the plan to go to one last Easter Sunday, because we attended a cousin-in-law's thanksgiving intimate lunch party.

That sounds so lovely. We have some mountain resorts with similar amenities. But we always go to the mountains in the winter!! Or late spring anyway

That sounds great. The only time I've been in a jacuzzi is on a cruise ship.

I know, even I can't stand the smell of chlorine but have no option but to go and swim in the pool. The pictures look amazing and shows the amount of fun you must have had.

That resort looks beautiful. Recently we did not go on leisure trip, except to Goa on 31st December. But we always take mini trips, one day or one night stay.
