Pico De Loro, Batangas

While most people flocked the pristine beach of Boracay on Labor Day, Cariza and I went on a spontaneous roadtrip adventure to Nasugbu, Batangas to relax and escape at Pico De Loro. I’ve never been to Pico before, so I have no idea what to expect but I assumed it’s a great place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Since this trip was all about relaxation and forgetting the stress of my existing yet petty problem, I shall let the photos do the ~talking~

About Pico de Loro

Pico De Loro is a beach and country club developed by SM Properties, equipped with a full range of sports and recreation facilities. They have a boutique hotel and 8 residential buildings. Some units of the residential buildings are rented for vacation goers.

How to get there?

From Manila, there are three routes to Pico De Loro. The shortest route is via Cavitex, while the longest is through Tagaytay via the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway. I recommend you check with Google Maps for the best route from your location. Sadly, I have no idea how to get here via public bus. A car is highly recommended because the entrance is also far from the resort.

What else do you need to know?

Pico De Loro is a members-only resort, but you can access the facilities if you know someone. In this case, Maine Manalansan is renting her unit. All you have to do is show the proper documents, which Maine has provided, and pay certain fees. I had to pay a membership fee of PHP1,000 (per pax). The resort is also using a reload-able cash card for your transactions, which also cost PHP1,000 (valid for a year). With this card, you’ll be able to access a bunch of sport and recreation activities in Pico de Loro, such as swimming, bowling, billiards, frisbee and horse-back riding.

Where to stay in Pico?

Cariza and I stayed at Brick & Mustard’s unit. It’s a cozy one-bedroom unit at the Miranda building (about 5-minutes from the beach). The place has everything — bed, TV with cable and DVD, kitchen, microwave, kitchenwares, and so on. All you need to bring is the food, drinking water and your personal toiletries.

The rate is PHP6,000/night good for six (6) people. So, that’s like PHP1000/person/night. I’d say that’s a pretty cheap deal considering how clean and pretty the place is.

    Hi. I’d like to ask if the 1000php card for the recreations is mandatory. Today, 1,200php na ang entrance fee. So assuming we still should pay for the card, 2,200 na per head? Thanks!! I’m with my family and we’re 10. We paid for a room in Jacana and it was pretty expensive.

      Hi Bianca! Nope, the card is not per head unless your family wants a separate card.

      Correct me if I’m wrong but for a family of 10, the amount should be PHP12,000 (entrance fee) + PHP1,000 for the membership card.

    Hi. Just want to ask if the 1,000 membership fee is on top of the room rate. So, that means you had to pay 2k/person? Thanks.

      At the time of visit, yes. The 1,000 membership fee is on top of the room mate + cash load.
