Take the Land Tour to Marian Orchard and Amore Point

The Batangas Lakelands' Land Tour packages can offer city dwellers a reverent retreat to nature and prayer. From the hotel, the Amore bus will take you to the Marian Orchard Pilgrimage Site, a 5-hectare land blooming with flowers and sprawling with religious monuments of impressive sculpture and architecture.

Every corner of this spiritual oasis feels like a must-see spot, so be sure to take the time to appreciate this wondrous place as you recharge your weary soul. Take a hike up the Sacred Heart Chapel and Tower, which offers visitors the picturesque landscapes of the orchard from above, or follow the saint-laden pathway of Two Hearts Promenade leading to the splendid structure of the Dome of Mary Mediatrix. Pray and reflect inside the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel or cite the rosary while stepping over human-sized beads at the Rosarium. The Chimes of Mary consisting of 14 custom-made bells from Netherlands, also gives visitors a ring every 15 minutes.

After your religious tour around the Marian Orchard, the Amore bus will then take you to Amore Point, which is a lakeside property that acts as a dock to the catamaran boats ready for the Lake Cruise travelers. The Land Tour package inclusive of snacks and a lunch meal at the Lima Park Hotel's Garden Room is priced P3,180 while the Land Tour inclusive of snacks and lunch or dinner at Amore Point is priced P2,220.
 

Cruise to the Beautiful Sunset of Lakepoint Manakah

Make your Batangas getaway more memorable by cruising on a yacht’s roofdeck and capping off the wondrous trip with a beautiful sunset over the panoramic waters of Taal Lake. All of this is possible with the Batangas Lakelands’ Lake Cruise package.

The tour starts at Amore Point where your yacht awaits at the dock. You will then cruise over Taal Lake’s pristine waters to reach Lakepoint Manakah, a lakefront property perched at the side of an elevated island. After enjoying your complimentary snacks: a local specialty binalot and buko juice straight from the coconut fruit, you can take your corner at their viewdeck or up their Tanawan treehouse and just let the sunset unveil its beguiling beauty; its glow slowly pulling a blanket of orange hues over the far-reaching Taal Lake, opting anyone who sees it to just unwind and let time flow without worries in their mind.

The Sunset Cruise is priced P4,200 per person, inclusive of snacks and a Steak Dinner once you get back at Lima Park Hotel’s Garden Room. To some who would prefer to cruise under the bright sun and wish to see Taal Lake in its sparkling emerald glory, you can also avail their Morning Cruise, inclusive of snacks and lunch at Amore Point, all for a price of P3,240 per person.
 

Fly Over Taal’s Awe-Inspiring Caldera

The sky’s the limit to the dedicated adventurer, and ticking “travel via helicopter” off your bucket list can now be done over the weekends, thanks to Batangas Lakelands' Sky Adventure package! With the price of P9,600, it is inclusive of a lunch or steak dinner at Limapark Hotel’s Garden Room, and a 12-minute helicopter ride from the hotel to the crater of Taal Volcano and back.

You’ll be riding the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X. Bell is a US company which for over 80 years now, has been producing helicopters for both military and commercial use. The Bell 505 model is a five-seater helicopter which can accommodate four passengers at maximum, one sits beside the pilot while the other three can be seated at the backseat. When riding the chopper, turbulence is reduced to a minimum while its wide windows will give you an immense view of the stunning scenery outside.

The trip takes off at Lima Park Hotel’s helipad. After passing over the clusters of urban houses and the now-minuscule structures of the Marian Orchard, you will be then flying over the vast Taal Lake and the lush jungles of its islands. The climax comes in the form of the Taal Volcano’s caldera, which looks over the sky like an eye of grandeur surrounded by verdant land. The whole experience is nothing short of breathtaking, and neither photographs nor footage can contest to seeing such a mesmerizing sight in real life.

It is always most rewarding when you treat yourself with the adventures that you really deserve. So if you're looking forward to more remarkable experiences before the year comes to a close, plan ahead and make reservations with Batangas Lakelands!
