Laguna: NUVALI

Located within the jurisdiction of the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba, and the municipality of Cabuyao in the province of Laguna, NUVALI is a mix of residential, recreational, and industrial developments that is already becoming a popular weekend getaway destination not only for those living in Laguna but also for those living in the neighboring provinces and cities.

Long before NUVALI even became a name, the lands which it occupies now were actually once part of the land owned by the friars during the Spanish Colonial era. It was then acquired by a group of American entrepreneurs after the Spanish masters were booted out of the country. They then developed the lands as a sugar plantation and in 1948, it once again transformed ownership-this time to a Filipino statesman named Jose Yulo.

Years later, his family would collaborate with Ayala Land Inc. which would eventually give a new purpose for the said land. This "purpose" would be the beginning of NUVALI.

Today, the former Friar land -turned- sugar plantation-turned high-end community is one of Laguna's pride. It doesn't stop there though, NUVALI is continuously being improved to satisfy the needs and the wants of its community and also the community around it.
Tons of carp!!!
Usually, when we say community, we'd be reminded of houses, streets, roads, and also buildings, but even if it is a high-end community, NUVALI is known for being a haven where man and nature coexist. Its 1860 hectare property is still covered with at least 80% nature. NUVALI's infrastructures were designed and built so that it would compliment with the beautiful scenery that surrounds it.
