About Us – a few things about our lovely hotel and team

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

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.

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.

“Being at Rockpoint almost every year is a very unwinding experience for me and my family. We usually stay at their dormitory, giving my whole family that time to relax and bond. It’s our home away from home. We We most especially enjoy the good food and the quiet ambiance of the whole place. Our kids enjoy the swimming pool but my husband and I enjoy the Karaoke room where we get to stay up to sing till the wee wee hours of the morning and not worry about our kids since they’re just a few rooms away. Rockpoint’s service is personalized. I even get the pampering of a massage therepist. And before our weekend ends, my whole family is recharged from our experience there. One of the best things about the place is the convenience of its location.”

“I had the pleasure of staying for two weeks at your lovely Rockpoint Resort in Calamba in January 2008. This lovely small Resort is an ideal place to relax, or do business without the interruption of noise and music like so many resorts in your area. I was there to do some training and consulting and I found it an ideal environment for business or pleasure. I observed many small conferences there also receiving great service and being very happy and yet not disturbing those of us who had to have an early night’s rest! Your wonderful friendly staff are what really makes a stay so special, they are so motivated to please and go the extra mile to ensure all needs are met and make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive to your last day of departure. I wish you, your wonderful employees and the Rockpoint Resort every success for the future.”

“I was in the Philippines to visit my sick mother. During this trip I suffered from swollen limbs. The doctor told me it’s very common for people to have “manas” especially when you travel by plane for long hours. So my in-laws suggested we go take a quick trip to Laguna to dip in the hot springs water of Pansol. Of course, I was a bit skeptical at first but that night we went swimming in your hotspring swimming pool. It was only for 45 minutes but by the next morning, I noticed the swelling on my legs and arms had subsided! And I felt rejuvenated! Too bad we couldn’t stay longer because I had to leave the Phils. in 2 days. Now I’m a believer.”

Ms. Ofelia de Veyra (Philadelphia, USA)

“This country, the Philippines, and especially this hotel had plenty of very nice people who received me with warm smiles. I am very happy to have visited your country for the second time and I’m glad I stayed here in Rockpoint. I enjoyed your food, your swimming pool with hot springs, and most especially your hospitality. Thanks a lot. I’ll miss you all.”
