(STAYCATION) A Relaxing Weekend at LULJETTAS Place Garden Suites, and Hanging Gardens Spa


0

We pinoys love summer adventures and when we say adventures we mean travelling, hiking, water sports and even visiting unique summer places that gives us that relaxation and contentment we want (or need). Though some of us wanted to just find a good place in town but to no avail, there are just very limited summer destinations and sanctuaries out here. Good thing Antipolo houses some of the wonderful tourist spots, including the famous Luljettas Place, a hanging Gardens Spa and Garden suites. It has amenities for one’s ultimate pampering and relaxation. Luljettas came from Spanish name of Lolita, the owner of the properties.

Well, this is actually not the first time I am sharing you about this place. Back in 2013 when Luljettas is on its humble beginnings, we got the chance to visit the place and I would say that A LOT HAS CHANGED FOR GOOD!

If you look at the 2013 photos here in my Facebook Page on Rod Magaru Show, you’ll see how big the improvements are. Surprisingly, The Luljettas Garden Suites is one of the most beautiful additions to the place. And because of the requests of the patrons and to cater to a broader range of market banking on the health and wellness offerings of the resort, they build the Luljetta’s Place, Hanging Gardens Spa and Garden Suites. Also very happy because they now have fully operational overnight accommodations, which I would love to share with you.

We arrived at Luljettas around after lunch and of course, since Antipolo is home of the most popular Suman in the country, Luljettas has its version of very delectable suman known as “SuMaka”, a sweet delicacy of Suman, Mango and Kasuy paired with refreshing lemon grass iced tea.

Oh by the way, let me tell you how to go to Luljettas Hanging Gardens Spa and Gardens Suite:

If you’re coming from EDSA, take a van at Shaw Boulevard to Ynares then ride a tricycle to Antipolo Church. Alternate: Take a jeep or FX in Cubao plying Antipolo Simbahan (FX/VAN). Travel time is 40-60 minutes.

If youre coming from Ortigas Avenue, go straight all the way to Ortigas Extension. Turn right when you reach the Ynares Sports Center. Go straight then turn right again when you reach Unciano Medical Center. From there, you will see Loreland Farm Resort’s directional signs. Simply follow the signs to get to the Gardens Spa.
