Christmas party is one of the highly anticipated occasions when it comes to the family celebration. Every year, one of us (my siblings) is appointed as the event host. The host is in-charge to look for the venue (where else, but our respective homes), food and program for the occasion. For the latest Christmas party, we decided to celebrate our family reunion differently.
We were so excited to plan out the venue of our 2019 party. So, as early as August 30, 2019, we were checking out resorts and hotels that could accommodate a group of 25 pax for a reasonable rate. My brother in law suggested a resort somewhere along Murcia but it was immediately crossed out because of transportation issues. Another family member suggested a resort along the national road going to Bacolod City. It has a swimming pool and hotel, wherein our little kids can swim and we may stay overnight in case the party extends up to midnight.
With many venue suggestions and discussions of each place, Jitaku Private Resort at 25th St., Calamba, Capitol Subdivision, Barangay 3 was the unanimous decision. Aside from its proximity to the city and the amenities for guests, it offers privacy because we had the resort by ourselves.
Jitaku Private Resort is a private modern house with a medium-sized swimming pool. It has a bar area near the pool wherein you can order hard drinks and beer. The exterior has a Bali or Korean vibe with a landscaped pocket garden. The cozy ambiance is highlighted by the various lights complimenting each other, even the pool is lighted underneath, so night swimming is safe.
Aside from the well-maintained swimming pool and landscaped garden, it has an open area for dining, a large airconditioned living area with a flat screen TV and videoke set, a kitchen area furnished with a rice cooker and refrigerator, an airconditioned bedroom and grilling area. There are two comfort rooms, one inside the living area and another one in the bedroom.
With the accompanying pictures as evidence, I am sure, we made the right choice. Jitaku Private Resort is indeed for private parties and intimate family gatherings. We spent the night singing songs from the videoke, exchanging gifts and eating lechon while drinking a few bottles of beer.
