The Philippine Star – January 8, 2012
MANILA, Philippines – Lot owners of Playa Laiya, the premier luxury leisure-residential development in San Juan, Batangas have one more reason to be happy about their residential tropical paradise: the exclusive Playa Laiya Beach Club is now open to give them more relaxation and fun in the sun.
The Playa Laiya Beach Club launch gathered together lot owners and selected guests at a beach party that allowed them to enjoy the Beach Club’s amenities which include kiddie pools, a Jacuzzi, and an infinity edge lap pool. There are also several cabanas, located either by the pools or the beach that can accommodate five to 15 people.
Guests also enjoyed various activities such as kayaking, massage treatments and boat tours of the coastline of Laiya, while kids loved designing their own flip-flops and making Hawaiian lei necklaces and bracelets.
In addition, the Playa Laiya Beach Club has a bathhouse, a veranda and a pool deck for lot owners and their guests to enjoy.
“The Beach Club is an exclusive amenity of residential lot owners of Playa Laiya. However, guests may be allowed usage if they are endorsed by a lot owner,” said Albert Villa-Real, VP for sales.
Playa Laiya’s Beach Club
Now that the Playa Laiya Beach Club has been launched, lot owners may already enjoy its amenities.
“Due to the high demand for Playa Laiya lots, we recently launched a new phase located in the northern portion of the property,” Villa-Real said. Lot owners in some phases may start their house construction in the first half of 2012.
Playa Laiya has a unique concept and theme that integrates a residential village and a leisure-tourism estate. This creates a more convenient and less costly arrangement for its residents who wish to enjoy the leisure component of their residential property.
“Other developments employ a club membership system, but our system in Playa Laiya is better. Our residents will only have to pay for usage of the amenities and, of course, the village association dues for the maintenance of the village and its amenities. There is no need to pay for a country club share and monthly membership dues,” said Villa-Real.
Resort party place
Playa Laiya’s tropical paradise setting and its Beach Club amenities are exclusive to lot owners and residents so they could fully enjoy their privacy and the amenities the Beach Club offers.
Playa Laiya also has a commercial and tourism component in its development through its leisure-tourism estate. It is envisioned to have commercial operations such as dining establishments, accommodations facilities, and merchant outlets. Third-party locators and business owners will have the chance to purchase commercial lots at the leisure-tourism estate. Being commercial in nature, it will be open to the public.
The Beach Club’s bathhouse features a contemporary tropical Asian design.
“We envision this place to be another Boracay here in the Philippines or like Costa del Sol in Spain. But instead of taking a plane and a boat to an island resort, our guests can come here by car. We are just two and a half hours away from Alabang. It’s very convenient,” said Rachel Quinto, project head of Playa Laiya.
“Playa Laiya features a fantastic beach located within a seven-kilometer white sand shoreline with a huge beachfront area measuring about one kilometer. The beachfront on the west side has fine white sand that looks really beautiful especially in the summer,” added Quinto.
