Mt. Malarayat Golf & Country Club review

When it was just me and Jason, we were game for any out of town place. But since having Greyson, we consider if the place is child-friendly. Can I say this place is perfect for emerging toddlers! Just 2 hours away from the Metro via SLEX and located in Lipa, Batangas. The air is cooler as there are lots of trees, the grass is perfectly manicured – good for walking barefoot for the toddlers (no trash, debris, very few insects), the roads are safe for strolling and biking. Prepare to walk though since the amenities were pretty far from each other. You can use a golf cart too / their shuttle service but we like walking to enjoy the scenery and the fresh air away from the Metro!

But first things first! We went here to join my family and this was one of the few places available in Batangas that Father’s Day weekend so this became the choice. Good thing too because it was such a nice discovery!

We booked via Agoda since it was cheaper than walking in or booking via their website, plus I could avail of my Agoda discount.

We went to the Country Club to check in and were escorted to our room in Tanguile. We were at the 2nd floor and had a nice view of the mountains and trees.

We were also walking distance from the huge pool which was around 4-5 feet tops!

Nearby was a kids playground which my toddler enjoyed so much! (I did as well!)

The playground is built for kids and adults alike 😂 We had so much fun here!

The pool wasn’t crowded too and the weather was perfect because of the trees.

It was so nice breastfeeding here as it feels a bit private plus the view is awesome – greenery everywhere, mountains, water. I wish we stayed longer! Not to mention there was a lottt of water in the shower 😂 It’s been 4 months now since the water crisis and it just feels so nice to have good water pressure and a heated shower 😂

Bikes were available for rent at Php 150/ hour. So it was perfect to tour the area!

Just 2 things though, there doesn’t seem to be an attendant always like when you would use the gym, no one was available at the reception area. The price at the restaurant was also around 400-500/head a la carte so best to bring snacks and quick meals if you are on a budget. Their buffet though was sulit at 600/head! :)

This reminds me of Las Casas in Bataan! Overall our stay here was awesome. I would like to live in a place like this 😂 I feel that this would be our new go to place if we want to breathe in fresh air and have a safe space where the kids can swim, play and run around. Big thanks to my cousin for discovering this family friendly place which is now our new favorite! ❤️
