Last week I was invited to visit Loreland Farm Resort. Clueless on what the place will offer, I glanced at the internet and found that there is this much talk about Hanging Garden called LULJETTAS HANGING GARDEN and SPA. So I said yes! Fast forward to Saturday afternoon, I met with 9 other blogger friends and all I know that time is that, it will be a rocking experience.
I’m not really familiar with Antipolo. All I know is that when I was a kid, we joined a neighbourhood trip to go to Antipolo church and Hinulugang Taktak where we had our lunch and that’s it. In this trip, I will share something good—no one of the greatest weekend getaway I had.
But before anything else, here’s a quick tip on how to get there:
I took a van at Shaw Blvd til Ynares then ride a tricycle to Antipolo Churc. Alternate: Take a jeep or FX in Cubao plying Antipolo Simbahan (FX/VAN costs Php50.00) 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 resort
If you’re coming from Marcos Highway:
Turn right at the Sumulong Highway intersection upon reaching Masinag Market (located on your left). Follow the Sumulong Highway until you reach the Circumferential Road. Make a right turn. Go straight, and then make another right turn when you reach the first Triangle. Go straight again before making a left turn at the Hamaka Park Triangle near Ynares Sports Center. Follow the road until you reach Unciano Medical Center then turn right. Simply follow the signs to get to the Loreland Farm Resort.
We met Ramon Marinas, Managing Director for Bienvenido Tours and a very dedicated working boss. He ushered us to the resort and we were welcomed by a very freshly brewed Iced tea and very delicious Suman. He toured us from the reception to pools.
Some of the rooms and amenities are on the photos below
Actually, the Farm Resort is soo big. There are different phases you can go aside from the outdoor activities that you can do. Aside from the pools which you can enjoy unlimitedly, there are also ziplines, playgrounds, sports and recreational areas that you can freely trek on.
I don’t recommend resort much but I can actually consider sharing this beautiful getaway to friends. Especially to my celebrity friends and people in the industry who are having a tiring day and to corporate buddies I have who needs a relaxing weekend, Loreland Farm Resort is the place to go.

Also that afternoon I was able to see how beautiful view it has.
More than the resort itself, what I’m more excited to share is the LULJETTA’s Hanging Gardens and Spa. This new area is named after Lolita’s spanish name: LULJETTA’s. It has amenities for one’s ultimate pampering and relaxation. It has infinity pools, heated jacuzzi, sauna, pocket gardens, lounges, locker rooms and hanging restaurant.
The concept of having hanging gardens ans spa in one is probably one of the first if not the only hanging garden concept of its kind in the country. Ramon explains that their goal is to provide venue for guest who wish to have a more private or exclusive accommodation at the resort.
After our tour, we had our hot tea. The place is so unique makes me wanna call it the sanctuary. During our dinner we had our intimated conversation about what ourselves. It is indeed like a chill version of retreat.
Tropical and Asian Inspired, the hanging gardens and Spa boasts of furniture pieces from Marinas’ family trips across Asia. Some of the synthetic rattan weavers were made by craftsmen of Pampanga. Here are some healthy dinner we had at night.
After dinner, we went on swimming at the hanging garden and proceed with their signature massage. We were offered to wear these awesome sarongs.
After our dinner, we tried the signature massage and I can say that this is one of the best massages I had. During our stay, they have an ongoing promo worth P500 in which you can avail the full body massage plus the foot spa. I think I am going back. I will!
The next morning, we went to Camp Tipolo Adventureland. Camp Tipolo is on the lower part of the resort where teambuilding happens.
Going down to the ponds and its areas, we braved the stairs and what surprised us is another dimension of the farm where there are outdoor facilities designed for exciting outdoor physical activities.
I really wanted to try the Tarzan-ish but soo scared to launch my youtube debut falling in between the water but I will try that on my next visit. Camp Tipolo is a perfect for Team Building Venue.
So I suggest If you want to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city life and have a short getaway at a place that will provide you everything that you desire, visit Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Indeed, Loreland Resort is Built for all, The Venue, most especially its newest Luljetta’s Garden and Spa, is the best option for intimate gatherings like weddings, prenuptials, family events, private and/or spa parties, teambuilding and above all, rest and recreation.
