This post is loooooong overdue. Well, I actually got hundreds of long overdue travel photos up in my hard drive begging for me to post them. The thing is, I was actually in transition since last year, trying to decide if I should let go (or not) of my travel blog ( The Wandering Peach). Well, I decided last January to let go and I am in the process of transferring them into this blog since it’s all about our family’s travel.
Up until now, I am still not finished transferring all of my travel post but hang in there. It should be done by te middle of this year.
Anyway, our family swimming to Emerald Villa in Pansol, Laguna happened because my Aunt Becky wanted to treat her grandchildren to a family swimming. My sister who calls herself Anney was the one in charge to look for an affordable private resort that can accommodate all of us. And she found this.
The rate that was given to us last August 2014 was ₱9,000. The resort was all ours from 8am to 5pm! And that includes three rooms with 6 beds.
The rooms are quite big and the sheets were clean when we got there. The only problem I had with the rooms is that only the first room has a/c and that it’s filled with mosquitos.
Good thing I always bring mosquito patches with me wherever we go.
The resort also has a billiard table to keep young guests entertained. I don’t know how to play billiards.. tsk tsk.
Since it was a private resort, we brought our own food. We had Dalandan Juice as our drinks served Sago-gulaman style..LOL! and Fruit Salad for dessert.
We had Squid Adobo, Shrimp, Chicken Teriyaki,.. and lots of chips…
We also grilled some pork belly, hotdogs, and fish..

I was around 6 weeks pregnant at the time. This is right before we found out about the Anembryonic Pregnancy.
There are two swimming pools in the resort. One adult swimming pool, one kiddie pool, and one jacuzzi which you can rent for ₱500 per hour.
This is the jacuzzi. We had it running for two hours.
Ykaie and her cousins had some great underwater shots.
This is our epic fail family underwater shot..LOL! For the life of me, I couldn’t bring myself to open my eyes.
We really had a great time at the resort. Nobody rested nor slept inside the rooms because of the mosquitos. Those who wanted to sleep, did in the first room where there’s a/c.
Ykaie and Cyra
Ykaie and her cousins loved jump shots in the pool!
It was really fun and we had a great time at the resort. I just wish they would fix the mosquitos in the room and put electric fans for the convenience of the guests.
Emerald Villa is located at Natalie St. Purok 5, Brgy. Pansol, Calamba City, Laguna
