THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS OF HOT SPRINGS:

At a constant temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit or 48 degrees Celsius, the water flowing from Mount Makiling falls under the category of ‘hot springs’. A hot spring is defined as hot water, vapor or gases that is issued from the ground with a temperature in excess of 25 degrees C (77 degrees F) and contains prescribed amount of designated substances.

Unlike some areas in Laguna where only cold or warm springs are abundant, Pansol is lucky to have an unlimited supply of pleasantly smelling sulfuric hot springs which is believed to have healing properties.

In Japan, bathing in hot springs is hailed as the favorite activity for relaxation, enjoyed mostly by the rich.

Onsen, Japanese term for hot springs, are still major attractions for vacationers. However, here in the Philippines you need not be rich to be able to experience an invigorating hot spring dip. There are countless public resorts where you can spend an entire day swimming in hot springs.

Its popularity is attributed to the relaxing effect and the beneficial properties of the water. Many people attest to the physical replenishment they get after a hot dip. Some doctors even prescribe hot spring treatment to cure certain conditions.

  • Chronic rheumatism
  • Neuralgia
  • Chronic diseases of the stomach, intestines, liver & gallbladder
  • Hypertension
  • Hemi-plegia
  • Glucosuria & gout

 

It is also used for treating external injuries and for post-operative treatment and rehabilitation.

  • Soothes tired muscles and aching joints
  • Cures skin tissue problems
  • Calcium in the water eases swollen limbs
  • Iodine-ion lowers blood pressure
  • Sulfur strengthens the joints

At Rockpoint, we give guests the option of experiencing the wonderful benefits of hot springs either in the outdoor swimming pool facilities or in the private bath areas in the guest rooms which are equipped with large tubs (for two), in the sunken Roman baths or in the higher end rooms with private jacuzzis.

 

HOW WE GOT OUR NAME:

Rockpoint is located at the foot of mystical Mount Makiling, a dormant volcano, from where an abundant flow of hot spring water comes from. Legend has it that this volcano is the home of a beautiful deity, Maria. Thus, this private village where Rockpoint is situated is aptly called Maria Makiling Hot Springs Village, named such to pay homage to its legendary goddess who lives in infamous mountain. (Click here to know more about the Legends of Maria Makiling)

As you enter the village entrance, you will find, looming in the distance, a unique rock formation made of red cinder that towers over the many houses and resorts of Maria Makiling Village. Looking like a cathedral spire, this gigantic rock with its mysterious features, was the inspiration for the name of Rockpoint.

Some folks say that the rock is enchanted, for no amount of digging, quarrying or dynamite explosives could shake it from its existence. Decades ago, when the rock was much smaller in size, there were talks by some local folks who swear that if you looked closely at one side of the rock, it will reveal the silhouette of the face of a woman. Locals believe that this is the face of Maria Makiling, watching over her beloved followers. Whether this story is true or not, we can say that just by looking at the rock formation, it will really intrigue you. Its sheer size alone is breathtaking.

In truth, this rock formation that seem to point upwards to the skies serves as the landmark that leads guests to Rockpoint – the premier resort-hotel, spa and conference center in Pansol, Calamba, Laguna.

MISSION STATEMENT: 

Our commitment is to provide hotel amenities and facilities at par with star-rated hotels and training centers in the metropolis. We strive to provide a unique ‘back-to-nature’ experience where guests can enjoy dedicated service in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

As a conference center, Rockpoint’s aim is to help organization in accomplishing their goals by providing an ideal set-up conducive to learning and training, which will help facilitate improved communication and increased productivity.

The people behind the concept of Rockpoint are pillars in the Life Insurance industry. Their own felt need for a seminar venue away from the bustle of the city yet accessible enough to their homes and office sowed this innovative idea. It was in 1985 when construction of a rest house-cum-seminar-house started. Called Antonio Seminar House, it was for the personal use of the owners to train their insurance agents. It did not take long before others found out about the good facilities of the place. Soon, people were asking how they could rent the facilities for their own training activities. What was once a private rest house was later opened to the public. At that time, only the most basic amenities were available — an air-conditioned theater-style conference room, four (4) dormitories as sleeping quarters, one adult outdoor swimming pool & one (1) kiddie pool with natural hot springs water and a game room with billiards, table tennis and mahjong. Kitchen staff that were ‘on call’ prepared home-cooked meals. There was no service staff except for the caretaker who maintained the upkeep of the seminar house.
