Developer begins Calatagan leisure tourism venture


LANDCO is set to welcome its newest seaside offering—midrise condo Playa Calatagan Residences, described as the perfect vacation home that offers the convenience of modern beachside living.

UPSCALE property developer Landco Pacific Corp. recently announced the development of its Calatagan property in the province of Batangas where it intends to launch Playa Calatagan Residences and Aquaria.

Belonging to the company’s Leisure Tourism Estate, the Playa Calatagan Residences is the latest seaside condominium within the 74-hectare seaside residential and mixed-use development.

Built around a leisure tourism estate, the developer will be inviting locators to build boutiques, restaurants and retail stores. Its first tower, called Nautilus, is set to groundbreak by the fourth quarter of this year.

The 95-room midrise condominium is designed to be the next-generation beach community, featuring world-class lifestyle amenities.

“The Playa Calatagan Residences condominiums will be right on the beautiful white sand beach of Calatagan. There is nothing like it available to the Metro Manila market,” said Landco president and CEO Alfred Xerez-Burgos III.

Complementing this latest project is Aquaria, which is set to serve as the main amenities and activities area of Playa Calatagan Residences.

Composed of various facilities such as a welcome center, bathhouses, a kiddie pool, cove pools, wooden cabanas, cove pool cabanas, a sunken pool bar, a food and beverage area, and a giant pool slide.

Highlight of this area is the giant three-story-high pool slide that is set to attract kids and the young at heart.

Soft opening

According to Xerez-Burgos III, the Aquaria beach resort will be ready for its public soft opening before the end of the year. “We hope families will enjoy the expansive 1.2-hectare development including a 1,600 square-meter pool and a three-story-high giant pool slide.”

He related that for the less adventurous, the development also offers jumbo umbrellas for those who just want to lounge sans the harsh afternoon sun.

Aquaria also features a huge dining pavilion called “The Sands” as well as a welcome center and a bathhouse.

Not only will Aquaria be open to Playa Calatagan homeowners and lot owners, but to the public as well (visiting guests will be charged a minimum fee for the use of Aquaria’s facilities while home and lot owners will enjoy special discounts and privileges).

As the anchor amenity of Playa Calatagan’s Leisure Tourism Estate, Aquaria aims to attract local and foreign tourists.

“For more than 20 years, the company has made its mark in Philippine real estate and is widely acknowledged as one of the leading leisure developers. As the purveyor of resort-living experiences, Playa Calatagan is envisioned to be a world-class tourist destination within driving distance of Metro Manila,” said Xerez-Burgos III.

Landco Pacific (customerrelations@landco.ph or www.landco.ph) is behind high-end leisure communities Peninsula de Punta Fuego, Terrazas de Punta Fuego, Leisure Farms, Ponderosa Leisure Farms, Hacienda Escudero and the Playa Series namely: Playa Calatagan, Playa Laiya, Playa Azalea.

    Home buyers in QC had a blast dealing with Carmelita Pujeda (of Tierra Pura Scam fame). PUJEDA BUILDERS & CONSTRUCTION SUPPLY of Culiat, QC.  The deals which involve millions of pesos get botch.

    The deal is to pay Pujeda millions of pesos for some dubious properties in Kamias, Tandang Sora and Culiat.  The properties are now in Sulit and AyosDito.

    When you are all excited about the acquisition, Lita Pujeda will kill you and prevent the buyers from the properties.  She would simply disappear.  If followed-up, her attack dogs and pal friends (as in palamunin) will bark at you and would simply pan “ano’ng deal”?

    Complain to QC Hall?  Forget it.  Some heavy weights are actually involved in this scam.

    Tell all home buyers and friends.  Easy targets are OFWs and Balikbayans.
