Calatagan has been a known destination for beach lovers seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of the metro. Going to Calatagan has its perks as it is just a quick two and half hours drive from Alabang via scenic and gastronomic Tagaytay. The weekend traffic at Tagaytay will make travel time longer by 30mins to one hour, though, which is why some would take the more exciting drive via the Kaybiang tunnel from Cavitex.
A lot of changes have been noted in the Nasugbu-Lian-Calatagan area in the past few years. Sprawling prime resort communities such as Punta Fuego in Nasugbu and Playa Calatagan have made the area an instant destination during the weekends.
Lago de Oro, located just at the boundary of Lian and Calatagan, is more known as a wakeboard park than a hotel or restaurant. It is actually the first wakeboard park south of Metro Manila catering to those who want to do watersports without traveling as far as CamSur for CWC. Aside from its wakepark amenities, Lago de Oro has its own concoction of watersports -jetskis, kayaks, snorkeling, and other favorites.
A family venue, Lago de Oro hosts birthdays, weddings and other celebrations at its open area just beside its pools. The swimming pools are actually a stone's throw away from the beach and from the wakepark 'lago'. Calatagan is known for its wide and shallow beach area where you can actually walk as far as 500 meters from the shore hence fishing and dining rafts have become a common sight.
I have to mention that sunsets here are just spectacular as the Lago de Oro beach area is directly facing west. For photo buffs, the 'golden hour' seem to be longer as you watch the sun go down and a vast array of colors flood the sky until sundown. The low tide just gives you more shoreline and sand to enjoy the sunset with your foot dipped in shallow waters.
The restaurant is located just by the beach, accessible from the pool and wakeboard park. Food for dine-in customers are quite pricey (around P500 for plated breakfast, or around P650 for lunch), but is quite practical for group check-ins as breakfast is already included in the overnight accommodations, and buffet lunch (or dinner) may be served, depending on your reservation package. The food is prepared to satisfy your
cravings. Nothing fancy though for those seeking artistically plated dishes.
We haven't stayed overnight but from what I've heard from friends, accommodation is actually good. Overnight rates are also quite practical.
Parking space is enormous and can handle a lot of visitors.
I do wish we could go back to Lago de Oro, perhaps try wakeboarding again, or simply walk along the long shore of Calatagan watching the awesome sunset.
