Secretly yours, Cala Perdida

OMIGOSH!  I am so ridiculously awesome at planning family outings, I can just hug myself.  Lol!

Introducing a new player sitting comfortably at the top of my Family Adventures file folder --the ultra-amazing Cala Perdida in Calatagan, Batangas!  *fanfare*

Our front yard
Our backyard
Uh, never heard of it?  Of course, you haven't!  THAT is where my brilliant family outing planning prowess comes into play.  I had wanted a no-technology, nature trip for the tail end of summer and so I googled 'Swanky secluded private beach house in Calatagan'.  And voila!  Cala Perdida appeared.

Our house
Ok, ok, Googling isn't really impressive.  But Cala Perdida is.  It's a finely-chiseled diamond nestled in the bosom of the pristine beach and the wild forest, with the nearest neighbor located far, far away.  It's your own nature enclave.  The authentic 'your home away from home, get away from it all' reality.

Our very own private beach
Our garden
We spent the weekend here and the experience was just beyond beautiful.  It's teeming with multi-colored birds diving into the pool every few minutes.  Interesting-looking bugs fluttering about in the foliage.  Fish flying alongside of us in the ocean.  And don't get me started on the surrealistic beauty of the rest of the marine life.  The colors in this place are just severely amped, you wouldn't believe it.

Our very own mountain
Cala at night is equally mesmerizing with the sounds of nature --whistling winds, soothing waves, interspersed with wild calls from the woods.  Having no TV and no internet gave our weekend a completely adventurous spin.  And discovery!  Like when we found 2 to 3-foot long salamanders living down the beach, and a bird's nest right in our porch.  My boys have learned so much about animals, rock formations, and the ecosystem in just a span of 2 days!

To be honest, I had wanted to be selfish and make Cala Perdida our little secret.  But, to my dismay, a secret this astounding just can't be contained.
Spend your next summer here.  It's all yours.  Just as someday, it will be all ours again.

    1. Hi Chie! The main house has one bedroom. There are 2-3 bahay kubos around it that serve as mini bedrooms. The dining area is also in a separate hut. But they're all surrounding the house in a cluster. It's really very, very nice!

    1. Hi Anon! It really depends on how many you are. You may contact Mr. Francisco Delgado at +63-922-878-2858 or info@calaperdida.com. He's cool. Have fun!

  3. Hi Karen! I would like to ask how did you made your payments to Mr. Delgado? What's the terms and the process he gave you? Kasi, we contacted Mr. Delgado for our reservation on December. It just made me think why he is sending his messenger to get the 50% down payment instead of just sending his bank account number so we can deposit our payments directly to his account, we think it's more convenient and secured that way. We're worried kasi baka our payment will go to the pocket of some guy instead of Mr. Delgado himself. I told him but he said that we can be rest assured because we will have a contract, but I'm still wondering though...

    1. Hi rhaznaey! If I remember correctly, we did the exact same thing. Their system is kinda unconventional, but as long as you get the receipt and the complete name of the messenger, it should be safe. You can email a screen shot of the receipt to Mr. Delgado, too. Have fun in December!

  5. Hi,
    We found Cala Perdida on the internet too and saw your blog about your stay too..i think what you wrote about the property and your experience was the answer that we go pick cala perdida as our destination..its been ages since i had gone to the beach there in the Philippines and i wanted to ask you about the place's safety both the property and beach...any news about accidents happening there and any weird sightings of the unknowns? Being far from home and not well versed with all pamahiins people i talk to about the resort just tells me stories that are unbelivable..i hope you'll find this comment and hear from you..

    1. Oh my God! I cannot believe I missed this comment for an entire year! :( I deeply apologise. But for all its worth, we didn't encounter anything weird during our stay at Cala Perdida. We did go around in circles 3 or 4 times on our way there which got us joking about the Kapre playing tricks on us. lol! Other than that little silliness, the place is completely safe.
      Thank you for liking this post!
