Soon to rise on the pristine shores of San Juan in Batangas is The Spinnaker, a 22-story architectural marvel that brings you the elegance of a modern beachside community.

Exclusive for those with discriminating taste, this premium beachfront condotel offers a luxurious resort lifestyle with its unique architecture, curated units, impeccable amenities, and breathtaking coastal scenery along the magnificent white beach.

Stunning addition

The Spinnaker will no doubt be a stunning addition to Club Laiya, a 23-ha masterplanned resort estate by Landco Pacific Corp. Resembling the headsail of a yacht, this mid-rise condominium will gracefully adorn the skyline of this vibrant beach community. Its tasteful design and terraced levels offer every unit sweeping views of the Tayabas Bay, while some units will offer panoramic sceneries of the seascape and the sun-drenched landscape showcasing Mt. Dagulgol on the horizon.

Kenneth Yu of Visionary Architects designed the iconic structure of The Spinnaker, which embraces a life-centric approach that ensures balance between form, function and a sophisticated resort lifestyle. His Asean architecture firm, which is based in the Philippines, is included in the prestigious World Architecture Top 100 (WA100) and BCI Asia’s Top 10 in the Philippines.

Yu’s design for this enriching, modern beachfront condotel promises the full spectrum of a luxurious beachfront lifestyle that incorporates business, family, community, rest and relaxation, harmony with nature, as well as health and wellness.

Well-appointed units

A total of 247 curated units in varying configurations will be on offer. These include studio (34 to 37 sqm), one-bedroom (44 to 52 sqm), two-bedroom (86 to 123 sqm), three-bedroom (91-225 sqm), one-bedroom bi-level (70 sqm), two-bedroom bi-level (130 to 198 sqm), and three-bedroom bi-level units (315 sqm).

Each unit comes with a balcony; a generous floor-to-ceiling height of 2.8 meters; pre-wired cable TV and telephone outlets ready for internet access; individual intercom facility; pre-installed ceiling LED lighting fixtures; cove ceiling on strategic locations, automatic smoke detectors, and fire alarm sprinkler system; main door security view hole feature; and a washing machine area.

Exceptional finishes and essential appliances, like a split-type aircon, inverter-type refrigerator, induction cooktop, rangehood, and multi-point water heater, are also to be expected.

The Spinnaker will likewise offer a few commercial units, with sizes ranging from 51 to 279 sqm, for enterprising investors. Shops here can cater to future residents and guests not only to this beachfront home but also to the other developments within the expansive Club Laiya.

Modern indulgences

While the beautiful beach of San Juan serves as the centerpiece of the community, future guests will also revel in the modern luxurious indulgences offered by The Spinnaker.

Expect hotel-like features and amenities to warmly welcome you here, starting with its well-designed lobby that will beckon you to a relaxing time in your home by the beach.

Enjoy leisurely pursuits as it will host a gym, spa, 250-sqm infinity lap pool, a kid’s pool, a lounge and bar, a kid’s play zone, a ballroom for social and corporate functions, a sky bar, and a helipad. Retail and dining spaces can be found on the ground floor. Meeting rooms and ample parking spaces are provided as well.

What’s even better is that residents and investors will have access to the amenities and activities at Club Laiya, and will get to enjoy benefits under the Landco Privilege Program.

Sustainable features

Other features of The Spinnaker will meanwhile echo the same sustainability thrust that Club Laiya and Landco espouse. The Spinnaker is pursuing an EDGE Certification from the International Finance Corp., a member of the World Bank Group. It targets to generate at least 20 percent savings on its use of water and energy.

For instance, this premium beach condotel will be the first to feature the double-piped waterline system to use non-potable water for toilet flushing and irrigation. It will also have an electric vehicle charging station.

Club Laiya itself—similar to other beach towns of Landco—is registered under the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) green building program, as it seeks to curb its carbon footprint. This eco-friendly development has a double-piped water management system, environmental conservation efforts, livelihood projects for the local community, as well as tree-lined walkways, pedestrian routes, bicycle lanes, common areas that offer conducive spaces for work, and 24/7 security with CCTV, among others.

Sound residential condotel investment

Investing in the premium condotel units of The Spinnaker is indeed a smart move in more ways than one.

Essentially, this up-and-coming beachfront project will enable buyers and investors to realize their dream beach home and business ventures in a single setting amid the calming sound of waves, picturesque sunsets, and fine white sand.

It also gives you convenient access to other facilities of Club Laiya, a master-planned resort estate destination in one of the most beautiful locations south of the metro. There’s Plaza Laiya, an upcoming community plaza; Laiya Beach Club, which features a restaurant, pools and unhampered views of the ocean; Cocoons at Club Laiya, cylindrical sleeping pods that have become a favorite among tourists; Camperisti, which comprises modern “glamper vans” by the beach; and Captain Barbozza Restaurant and Bar.

What’s great is that Landco offers an option to enroll your unit in the rental pool in the future, making your real estate assets earn for you.

It’s worth noting that Landco is a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), which is led by tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan, who has sought to strengthen Landco’s commitment to delivering outstanding new lifestyle products and experiences that will revolutionize resort living.

And The Spinnaker will no doubt provide exactly that—distinct luxury resort living experiences and lucrative investment opportunities well suited for the discerning few.
