If you plan to stay in Lucban for a couple of days, there are hotels and B&Bs around town that you can rent out:
Freshen up at the Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel.
This resort is just right across the Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church. It’s perfect for families who crave for a piece of peace in the midst of a bustling highway. You can dive straight to its pristine, natural pools after a hike up the popular grotto – plus, you get to have a scenic view of the sacred mountain, Banahaw.
Take a bit of history at the Patio Rizal Hotel.
Situated in the middle of the town plaza, Patio Rizal sits in front of Lucban’s Rizal Park and beside the Municipal Hall. It is a quaint bed and breakfast that is reminiscent of Europe’s colonial architecture. Being at the center of the buzz, Patio Rizal is probably the easiest way to get around the Lucban.
Be one with nature at the Samkara Restaurant and Garden Resort.
A sanctuary tucked away in the middle of the greens and fields of Lucban, Samkara Garden Resort is like a refreshing drink after a long, hot day under the sun. Take a dip into their cool, blue pools and take your much needed break from the summer madness.
How to get there:
Take the Calamba Exit at the South Luzon Expressway. You have to pass through the towns of Calamba, Los Banos, Bay, Victoria, Pila, Sta. Cruz, Pagsanjan, Cavinti and Luisiana. Lucban is the first town in Quezon you’ll reach via this route.
