5. What makes Playa Laiya different from other Second Homes in Batangas?
Playa Laiya can be distinctly differentiated from other Second Homes in Batangas in terms of Product Concept, Location, and Product Quality.



In terms of Project Concept, Playa Laiya has a unique concept and theme wherein it integrates an Asian Tropical Contemporary Residential Resort Subdivision with a Leisure-Tourism Estate. Other developments employ a club membership scheme wherein lot owners have to but a country club share and pay monthly membership dues for the use of its amenities. In Playa Laiya, residents will only have to pay village association dues for the maintenance of the village and its amenities. Exclusive village amenities such as pools, bathhouses, and parks will be operated by the Village Association. 

On the other hand, commercial operations such as dining establishments, accommodations facilities, and merchant outlets shall be located at the Leisure-Tourism Estate. These establishments shall be offered to 3rd party commercial locators who specialize in these types of services.

The second level of distinction is its beach. Playa Laiya is located on a contiguous 7 kilometer white sand shoreline with diverse marine life and a growing beachside community. 

Lastly, as in its other projects, Landco focuses on the quality of the product it delivers. Therefore, one can expect top quality design and service for its valued clients.


6. How is Playa Laiya similar and also different in Playa Calatagan?
The “Playa” brand is what makes the two developments similar. In terms of concept, both offer an integrated Second Home Residential Resort Subdivision and Leisure Tourism development, with similar amenities and land development specifications. There may be differences in terms lot packages and price but both have the same brand that offers similar lifestyle experiences.
Amongst its differences are: size of development, location, and level commercialism. In terms of size, Playa Calatagan is 92 hectares while Playa Laiya is 144 hectares. Playa Calatagan covers a little less than a kilometer or beach frontage while Playa Laiya controls almost 2 kilometers.

Location is also considered a major difference. Laiya is in the south-east side of Batangas facing Tayabas Bay which opens towards the Pacific Ocean while Calatagan is in the opposite south-west side facing the South China Sea.

In terms of commercialism, the Laiya area may be considered more advanced with the abundance of resorts along its 7 kilometer shoreline. The Calatagan area, on the other hand, is a more secluded community given the privacy of the Calatagan peninsula.



7. What is the average lot cut?
Playa Laiya offers 220- 350 square meter lot cuts.


8. How much are the association dues?
Association dues vary depending on how much it is to maintain the various facilities and amenities a village has. This is usually determined by the Homeowner’s Village Association once it is established. Thus, it would be premature to state an exact price per square meter to date. As a reference, however, our Terrazas de Punta Fuego Residential Resort subdivision development charges PhP 3.50/ square meter for association dues.


9. Who can use the amenities?
Ownership of village amenities is a function of the formal turnover of the property by the Developer to the Village Association. 

Thus, ownership of the amenities prior to turnover belongs to the Developer. The Developer may prudently implement rules, guidelines, and rates it deems fit and necessary for the proper function and maintenance of the amenities before the turnover. It may also be used by anyone the Developer deems fit for it to be used.

After the turnover, the ownership of the village amenities is turned over to the Village Association. The Village Association will then charge association dues and rates, impose rules and guidelines it sees fit for the proper operation of its facilities and amenities. Only village owners and their accompanied guest may use the facilities, unless otherwise allowed by the Village Association.


10. When was the project launched?
Playa Laiya was launched last April 19, 2008.
