It’s only this time of pandemic that I was able to explore Laguna, my birth province and where I currently reside. Due to restrictions implemented, traveling around became difficult and limited but I am happy that at least I was able to discover hidden gems of my other home province. One of the places becoming popular in the province is the municipality of Cavinti which is now being tagged as the “Glamping Capital of the South”. Glamping sites now herds around Caliraya Lake and Lumot Lake that offers various activities and camping setups.
King’s Landing Waterfront Camping Resort:
I scrolled over my facebook feed looking for an affordable glamping offers and found King’s Landing. Of course, aside from the affordability I took consider also the view, service and feedbacks by its previous visitors. King’s Landing Waterfront Camping Resort is located in Brgy. Bukal, Cavinti, Laguna.
How to get there?
Ride a bus (from Buendia) bound to Sta. Cruz, Laguna. Travel time is around 2 hours and tell the driver to drop you off on jeepney terminal bound to Cavinti (It’s just near the DLTB bus terminal in Sta. Cruz). Upon riding the jeepney, tell the driver to drop you off in Jonson Cavinti. From Jonson, ride a tricycle that will take you straight to King’s Landing in Brgy. Bukal.

King’s Landing Waterfront Camping Resort is being owned by a foreigner known as “Mr. King”. He stays on his house on the same compound so he checks all his visitors from time to time. He’s so friendly that he would talk to you when he’s out and makes sure that you are having fun.
Not only Mr. King but I would like to commend as well all the staffs of the camping ground as they will cater all your needs and makes sure that you are comfortable on your entire stay!
The camping ground lies beside the beautiful Lumot Lake, so you could just sit from your tents or camping chairs and stare on its allure to relax yourself. I definitely felt the calmness of the place. You can also have a view of the more famous glamp site, Bloc Camp Site, on your right and simply relish yourself with a site of fishing boats passing by.
The resort also serves food upon order and I definitely recommend their burgers. They use homemade patties that certainly one of the tastiest I ever tried. Plus, the servings are worth for its price.
If you wish to relax away from the city, connect with nature without settings aside comfort, go ahead and book an overnight glamping on this camping ground.
