Just a couple of hours away from Manila, the bayside towns of Batangas have long been a favorite escape of the well-to-do. Many have even taken to buying property among these municipalities that surround Taal Volcano, from San Juan to Nasugbu to Calatagan.

Calatagan, in particular, has been a go-to for the rich and famous because of its near white sand beaches in its peninsula that comes between Balayan Bay and the South China Sea. Some have referred to Calatagan as the “Forbes Park of the South” because of the number of prominent families who own property there.

Resort living

Well, Batangas’ vast landscape is about to get even more premium. Landco has just recently announced two new projects under its Leisure Tourism Estate (LTE) and BeachTown segments: Club Laiya and CaSoBē.

Located in the municipality of San Juan, Club Laiya spreads across 24 hectares and features wide open spaces and beautiful promenades, with parks and retail landscapes. Here, property owners and tourists alike enjoy an active lifestyle with water activities such as windsurfing, kayaking, and yachting.  

CaSoBē, on the other hand, means Calatagan South Beach, and is 15 hectares big. It is more laidback, and provides more relaxation and entertainment attractions. Harbour Estates are lots offered within CaSoBē. These estates are classified as commercial or mixed use where lots are for residential or commercial or both.

These LTE serve as tourism and lifestyle destinations in a community setting. Its diverse resort amenities make it an attractive weekend getaway, work from a resort option and a venue for events and conferences,” stated Landco president and CEO Erickson Y. Manzano of the master-planned developments.

Promoting destinations

At these locations, Manzano reiterates that investors have flexibility of choice. Their purchased properties can either serve as either dream beach houses or a second home, or a commercial structure for a resort business.

“Or a blend of both in the thriving destination of Batangas,” he continues. “Through these projects, Landco helps promote Philippine tourism and jumpstart local businesses.”

These beachside properties are designed to evoke a sense of harmony with nature. Club Laiya and CaSoBē are envisioned to contribute to the quality of the leisure tourism experience in its locality and promote the three main principles of sustainable tourism.

These are environment, economic, and socio-cultural sustainability. The two properties are aiming to be both Edge and LEED certified. Ecological conservation projects particularly the conservation of marine life and sea turtles are also in place in both developments.

Work and play

According to Landco, these projects are also future-proof investments, and thrive on the booming tourism market of the province it is in.

The amenities at both properties were created under the developer’s Millennial Resorts. Included in the plans are unconventional accommodations like the capsule-like rooms of Cocoons to Crusoe Cabins’ beachfront view of Calatagan’s fantastic sunsets.

In terms of water amenities, the highlights include Aquaria, a water park with a three-level pool slide at CaSoBē and the Beach Club at Club Laiya.

Being at the location will not, apparently, halt productivity as a beach-side co-working space will be in-place at the property’s The Colony.

Landco is a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Corporation. For more information about Club Laiya and CaSoBē, visit or FB page @LandcoPacificCorporation.
