Buracai de Laiya Hotel – For travelers who are looking for a budget-friendly resort in Laiya, Buracai De Laiya is worth checking out. It’s a 5-story resort with rates that are relatively low compared to others in the area.

After a pleasant but long bus trip from Manila, we finally got off the tricycle in front of the resort. It was nice to get away from the stress of Makati and Manila living and find some peace and quiet. On first appearances we were impressed!

This resort is situated in the mountainous part of Laiya featured views of the mountains on one side and elevated beach views on the other. One thing I did notice was the lack of a cellphone signal (I used Globe and had a lot of trouble getting a signal).

Sometimes you should be a little cautious with “Cheap” hotels and resorts. Far too often a holiday can be ruined by booking a resort that is far too cheap and nasty. If you’re looking for a good, inexpensive weekend getaway that is comfortable as well as affordable…

The name “Buracai” came from the surnames of the original owners. The “Bura” came from Burabod and “Cai ” came from Cay, hence Buracai. Buracai De Laiya Beach Resort is located in the Barangay of Hugom, San Juan, Batangas. Being part of the beautiful Batangas, this resort was designed to reflect the ambiance and feel of Baguio, Tagaytay, Boracay, Pagudpod, and Palawan.

From what we saw and experienced we think it does a good job. The atmosphere was brilliant. If you love snorkeling you will like it here. There are a few beach resorts in this area but this is good for a budget and good for a family.

Buracai De Laiya Hotel And Resort Review

We spent a day at the resort giving us included access to all the resort amenities including breakfast. We were warmly greeted by the staff and made to feel at home.

Diamond Restaurant

On the lower ground floor of our resort, you can view the ocean as well as the refreshing splash of the infinity pools. They serve Filipino dishes including the

Batangas’ special recipes and an array of Asian and Italian cuisines. They offer a mandatory dinner buffet for 500 pesos. Food is okay but it’s only limited to 5-6 dishes so I think you’re not getting what you paid for. The breakfast buffet is good!! (In my opinion) definitely way better than the dinner buffet.

The food was good for the price, we even ordered seconds of Batangas Lomi we liked it so much (LOL)… I wanted to try one of their Halo Halo’s but they had run out of ingredients at the time.

Our room

Stairs ONLY: Be advised, the hotel is 5 stories high without an elevator so if you have a problem with stairs then a lower floor room would be better for you.

The hotel, being fairly new, is in good order and well maintained. We found our room to be pleasantly clean and comfortable. The bedding and linen were fresh and clean with no “sickness” at all.

The Platinum Bar on the viewing deck is a great place to be at sunset. Relax back with a drink, good conversation, amazing views, and take in the sunset.

What I loved about the Buracai De Laiya Resort was the ambiance. The beachfront views are lovely, the cool ocean breeze set the mood for relaxation. We loved the layout and feel of the resort. It was an easy place to just chill, lay back, and unwind.

If you like to snorkel then make sure you bring your gear. You can snorkel right off the beach behind the resort and the water is full of fish and coral in easy reach… no need for a boa!!!! – Buracai De Laiya
