As Metro Manila becomes congested once more with traffic and pollution, given the post-pandemic resumption of businesses, its denizens would get away to the provinces where the air is clean and the atmosphere is peaceful. Batangas is one of those provinces that provides these features. If there is one thing it is famous for is its beaches.

As such, real estate developers have built homes in Batangas to give prospective residents the peace of mind they seek, not to mention the chance to soak up the sun at its beaches and at the same time, enjoy the perks of modern living. On a luxury level, Landco Pacific Corporation, the premium real estate developer known for pioneering landscapes for more than 30 years, just unveiled its latest luxury beachfront condominium in Batangas – The Spinnaker.

The Spinnaker at the 23-hectare Club Laiya in San Juan, Batangas is a medium-rise residential condominium-hotel or condotel with a breathtaking sea view. What makes this project unique–it is eyed to be an iconic architectural landmark as its exterior is shaped like the front sail of a yacht, thanks to its terraced levels.

"The Spinnaker stands out for its iconic architecture. The way we gauged it, 50 years from now, it is still going to be iconic. Second, it is strategically located right in front of the white sand beach and the sea. It is a driving distance from Metro Manila, and you do not need to take the airplane to reach the beachfront condominium," stated Landco President and CEO, Erickson Y. Manzano.

"The third important factor that makes The Spinnaker special is sustainability. As far as I know, it is the first residential condominium to feature a double-piped waterline system to use non-potable water for toilet flushing and irrigation," he noted.

In keeping with the need to be sustainable and environment-friendly, The Spinnaker is proudly gunning for an EDGE Certification from the World Bank as it seeks to meet its standards of saving water and energy. The condotel will also feature a charging station for electric vehicles to help further reduce carbon emissions.

"Sustainability is in the DNA of Landco's latest development of premium properties not because we have to, but because it's the right thing to do," Manzano said.

He also shared his insights on the opportunity to own a beachfront property, "Real estate is a solid investment. It is a great store of wealth. It is historically proven that real estate keeps appreciating through the decades. While it appreciates, it is something that you can enjoy now and leave as a legacy for the next generations."

For amenities, The Spinnaker features an exclusive 250-square meter (sqm) infinity pool on the 6th floor, giving off Miami vibes. Its distinctly curated 247 units provide a panoramic view of the sea by Tayabas Bay and some units will have the scenery of both the sea and landscape punctuated by Mt. Daguldol.

Being a condotel, The Spinnaker offers hotel-like amenities and then some ― commercial spaces for dining and leisure activities, a well-designed lobby, drop-off area, common and podium parking, meeting rooms and storage rooms, gym, and spa, infinity lap pool, a separate swimming pool for children, lounge area, bar, play zone for children, ballroom for social and corporate functions, a sky bar, and a helipad for a quick flight to and from Metro Manila.

One of the perks of owning a unit is access to Club Laiya amenities and activities; benefits under the Landco Privilege Program and hassle-free investment under the optional lease-back program with certain conditions.

A few commercial units are made available at the lobby level ranging from 51 to 279 sqm. Property investors have the option to select from the curated residential units ― 34-37 sqm studio units, 44-52 sqm one-bedroom units, 86 to 123 sqm two-bedroom units, 91-225 sqm three-bedroom units, 70 sqm one-bedroom bi-level units, 130 to 198 sqm two-bedroom bi-level units, and a 315 sqm three-bedroom bi-level unit. In addition, there are parking spaces for both cars and big bikes.

The Spinnaker is only two hours away from Manila if one is to take the South Luzon Expressway if one wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. It also has excellent road access from other cities such as Lipa City, Batangas City; San Pablo City, Laguna; and Lucena City, Quezon Province.
