Merry Christmas guys! I can’t believe it’s 3 nights til Christmas. Earlier this morning, I was organizing our family year-ender then I realized I haven’t posted our mid-year travel yet. I still have a lot to blog about this year and I’m not sure if I will be able to finish before 2017. So, enough of the chitchat. :D
[July 23, 2016] Since my sister had been busy with her classes, we don’t have much choice on where to go during her “summer” break. I’ve been eyeing Luljetta’s since March for our office team building but because it was out of the alloted budget at that time, it didn’t push through.
Good thing my family was eager to explore Antipolo for a change.
We booked our reservation via Bienvenido Tours. At that time, we tried the COMFORT Package at Php 2,450 per pax which already includes the following:
- Snack of Antipolo’s Best Suman
- Set Meal (soup, salad, pasta and dessert)
- Choice of Luljetta’s Signature Massage with Ear Candling
- 7-hour access to Hanging Gardens Facilities (Locker, Sauna, Dr. Fish Spa, Heated Jacuzzi, Hydro-massage Pool, Infinity Pools, Meditation Lounges).
- Traditional bathrobe (batik) and towel for use
NOTE: At the time of writing, they had already increased their rates to Php 2,575.00 per pax.
Though we only booked a day tour, it was still a very relaxing experience, different from our previous family travels. We left Cavite at 8:15 AM and arrived at Luljetta’s a little past 9:30AM. The location is out of the main road so better use Waze. The spa itself is situated inside the Loreland Farm Resort (hence the photo below).
Before you enter the hanging gardens, you will be given a basket with your batik robe, towel and locker keys. We left all our belongings at the locker area and just brought our towels, phones and camera.
Most of the time we stayed at the pool which we have for ourselves. The water was cold but we had no choice but to get used to it. :D
Aside from the different pools and jacuzzi, they also have different “kubo” with board games, fish spa and a huge common area they call as the “Movie Lounge” where you can watch movies or play video games.
Our snacks and lunch are superb! The massage was okay (not best), but not bad for the price and overall experience.
And did I mention, the place has full of inspiring and motivating quotes?
I am sure our family will be back one of these days.
Have you considered this as one of your Christmas plans? Tell me about it!
That’s it for now.
