Mountain Weekend Getaway and Staycation over at Soro Soro Springs in Batangas

soro soro springs edited (190 of 234)
It has been way too long since my last adventure, so I went south a couple of weeks ago. While Batangas is usually known for beaches, there is also some (not so) secret places you can crash to. Especially for that little peace and quiet atop the mountains while dipping in the pool. Like Soro Soro Springs Mountain Resort.

The place is well equipped for a weekend getaway- be it for a day tour or overnight stay. We got there in record time- around an hour and 30 minutes but on average, it will take you 2 hours to get there from Manila. The spots that I loved the most is the pools, especially the one that's on the topmost part of the resort. All of the pools are filled with natural spring water.

The whole place in itself is a mountainside escape, everywhere you look, you know you can lay down and curl under the shade of trees with a good book.

While the place accommodates a day tour, I would suggest you go for an overnight stay to fully appreciate the mountainside relaxation Soro Soro Springs Mountain Resort offers. 12 hours is not enough. :D

The Filipino Rambler and the IG Worthy hanging bridge

The adventure here comes in the form of their air bike and the two hanging bridges that will take you to the other side of the resort. You will have to take a short hike starting with these bridges to get to the resort's highest point.

I swear, the mini hike is worth it for a view like this.
Since the place is vast, it is a great place to have team building activities and weddings or debuts. The garden area near the casitas can easily seat up to more than 150 persons. They also have a function room for smaller and more intimate gatherings.

You can bring food here- they have no corckage for food. They also have a convenience store in the area so drinks, chips and necessities are abundant. But if you want the full experience I suggest that you order from them a boodle fight set (1500 Php) that is great for up to 10 persons. Ours had:

Baby Back Ribs
Steamed Mussels and Shrimps

We stayed in their Casitas, which can house 2 adults or you can have a kid here too. The feel of the Casitas is bahay kubo bunker, with a functioning shower, toilet and syempre, may bidet rin dito which is a plus for me!

How to go to Soro Soro Springs Resort

Soro Soro Springs Resort is in Baranggay Soro Soro Ibaba, Batangas. When going for a drive, you can traverse the SLEX-Star toll and exit at Ibaan. Then take the San Jose Ibaan rd. to Soro Soro Springs Mountain Resort.

If you're going on commute from Manila, take a bus to the Batangas Grand Terminal. Price depends on where you started but if coming from Buendia, I would estimate 300 Php. From there, ride a jeep that says "Bayan" and tell that you're gonna get off at Hypermarket Balagtas.

From there, there are 3 options:
  • Ride a tricycle to the resort (Special Trip: 200 Php).
  • Ride a jeep to Sorosoro and get off at SIDC. Then you can ride a tricycle to the resort (tricycle fare – P50).
  • Opt for the Van Transfers from Hypermarket Balagtas. It would cost you 600 Php as it takes 6.2 km to get there.
