Spending time in Sta. Rosa, Laguna is not complete without a side trip to Nuvali. The prestigious eco-community is starting to be more than a pleasant dwelling place for those working in the area and neighboring cities like Makati and Muntinlupa. With the presence of numerous outdoor attractions in the 2,290-hectare property, a visit is worth a stay at Seda Nuvali (where I stayed overnight) and an experience of wakeboarding at Republ1c Wakepark.
Breezy For The Adventurous
The wakeboarding attraction had a lot of guests that day. An outdoor swimming pool was available for kids to swim in near the restaurant and the crowd was a great mix of locals and foreigners. I was thankful that it was breezy all over the place even without the presence of several trees. The movements of different people within the compound helped build an active ambiance which was appealing to adventure seekers.
The riding hours at Republ1c Wakepark extended up to 10:00pm during weekends. On weekedays, make sure to beat the 5:30 end time. The park opens at 8:30 in the morning.
So-called cable rates comprise the experience package with hourly variants for day and night rides. Gears are provided but you can bring personal ones at the site for use or you can purchase radical versions at the souvenir shop by the park entrance. A budget of no more than a thousand pesos is enough to make a memorable immersion of the place, including snacks at the restaurant.
The park is affiliated with an accommodation service but I stayed at the newly-opened hotel, Seda Nuvali, when I visited the place.
Interestingly, Nuvali is not far from Metro Manila. It's just less an hour away on a good day from Makati City and a cinema will soon open in the shopping district near the hotel.
