Experience kawa bath in Tanay, Rizal

Updated. October 30, 2020. Are you familiar with Kawa Bath? Have you ever heard of it? Kawa Bath is an activity that you can get cooked alive by dipping yourself in a big hot kawa. Filled with warm water, flowers, and milk that originated in Tibiao, Antique, kawa bath is one of the must-try activities that would probably make you feel alleviated. Actually, you don’t need to fly to Antique just to experience a kawa bath. El Patio Razon is a resort in Tanay that will let you try this traditional hot water bath.

Things to Do and Expect at El Patio Razon

Go glamping

My friends and I decided to go glamping at El Patio Razon. We decided to stay overnight and spent the whole night together in the resort. It was a chilly night. The place looks dark and peaceful. The only thing that you could hear was the buzzing fireflies around the area. We loved how serene the place was at night, but we felt a little comfortable. We actually didn’t know that there was no electricity at the resort. It was kind of uncomfortable for us.

The good thing was, we enjoyed making a bonfire and taking pictures at night. I tried to do the astrophotography but I failed. Besides this, the staff treated us nicely although sometimes we couldn’t really understand each other. It seemed that the staff wasn’t really paying attention to what we were telling him.

Take a kawa bath during day time

As we got up early in the morning, we fell in love with the spectacular views of the mountain ranges and the sunrise as well. The best time to visit El Patio Razon is in the morning right after hiking. You can have a good breakfast here while appreciating the beauty of nature.

Apart from that, the highlight of the place is apparently the Kawa Bath. Most hikers visit this place to experience Kawa Hot Bath. There are over six pieces of kawa that are good for 3-4 people. Yes, one kawa is good for a group of people. My friends and I really had fun dipping our bodies in the kawa. It was totally relaxing and it felt like we’re being cooked alive over those burning firewood while in a kawa.

Get to see the Hobbit House

The Hobbit House

The hobbit house that you can see and visit at El Patio Razon is just a resemblance to the house from the movie “The Hobbit”. It looks as tiny as what it is in the film. It is possible to stay overnight in this tiny room – but this is only good for 2 pax. We didn’t get to see what’s inside the room since it was closed, but we loved taking pictures from the outside of the house.

Take pictures at the Heart’s Lane

The Heart’s Lane

The Heart’s Lane is like a mini garden that you can find right down the area of the resort. You will notice some flowers that are apparently formed in a heart-shaped. Unfortunately, when we got there, there weren’t many flowers in the area – they looked really dry probably due to hot weather. The Heart’s Lane is just right in front of the Hobbit house.

Apart from these things, you can also do other activities like playing basketball and go bungee jumping. However, they seem not in good condition when we were there. Some of their amenities need to be fixed yet.

El Patio Razon is one of the side trips that you may visit when you go hiking in Tanay, Antipolo. For most hikers, they usually visit Treasure Moutain – a mountain that you can get to see the sea of clouds. It is just a 5-minute ride away from the resort. El Patio Razon is the first-ever resort near the metro that offers Kawa Bath! It is so affordable that anyone can get to experience it.
