WHERE TO STAY IN ANTIPOLO: Loreland Farm Resort - Little Paradise in Antipolo

Loreland Farm Resort - the place to be.


Loreland Farm Resort is a perfect weekend getaway for friends, family or even office mates. Being an ultimate resort that offers superb amenities this is a must place to be if you are tired and just to be relaxed with trees and birds ready to hum you with fresh natural blow of the wind. This resort was built to pamper people from all walks of life. Whoever you are, simple office employee or an affluent person who wants to hide in nature, Loreland Farm Resort has something for you. You can book Loreland Farm Resort, Antipolo City with Traveloka.






Loreland Farm Resort is an eight hectares hectares paradise with nine swimming pools each of which are located in a different area slowly developed as the place progress. It also has cottages and villas ready to accommodate guest with their preference depending on location in the resort and of course budget. Cottages for day or night guest are also available.



When we were planning this weekend getaway, we were thinking of a horror night. But Loreland Farm Resort is just too beautiful and alluring place to be the venue of our teeny plan of horror night. Before Ramon, the operations manager toured us around we were greeted by a delicacy of Antipolo and my favorite suman or sticky rice wrap in banana leaves dip in sugar or chocolate.













Breakfast 



After having a good good talk with friends, Ramon started to show us the resort. Loreland Farm Resort was then a rest house of Ramon's family. When his parents – Lolita and Renato - saw the potential of putting up a place where everybody can enjoy the good weather of Antipolo and escape the heat during summer they came up an idea of converting the place into a resort. Thus Loreland Farm Resort was born. I don't need to explain where Loreland came from. Hehe...

Before we proceed to our tour of the place we first dropped our bag in one of the resorts accommodation. We were placed in the main building where the reception is located.





Since we are in a group we were provided with a four bed room with clean linen and soft pillow. The room doesn't have a private bathroom. It has a flat screen TV and a mini fridge with complimentary bottled water.



It was very evident that Loreland Farm Resort is a must place to be for those who wants a complete rest and peace of mind as the lush vegetation will surely provide that atmosphere. The resort has a lot of fruit bearing trees as well as flowery plants which will make you feel that you are in a garden and not in a resort. Oh that's why its called Farm Resort.




















The resort can also accommodate events such as weddings, christening, birthdays and some corporate events. It has a a function area which can be rented for Php40,000.00 inclusive of all the materials needed for an event.






Loreland Farm Resort as I have said is a place were you can relax and have a peace of mind. Nature alone cannot justify a worthwhile retreat. It is customary for the Filipinos to asked or to talk to a supernatural being while at rest. Thus Loreland Farm Resort built a place where we can meditate and commune with God.



Disclaimer: I am not Catholic though i believe in the commonality of God with the Catholics, Born again and Baptist. 




Loreland Farm Resort is divided into two lifestyle center, the Loreland Farm Resort which I have showed you in the pictures above and the Lujetta's Hanging Garden. What I like about the Lujetta's Hanging Garden is that it has an overlooking view of the city. It has a spa, a Jacuzzi, a salon, hydro massage and infinity pool. Though staying here entails much cost than staying at the above shown accommodations and swimming pools, the service, relaxation and peace in a more privately secluded area cannot be matched by any other material wealth.

After the tour Ramon showed to us a restaurant which is similar to Ka Lui Restaurant of Palawan. The place captured us all. The dim lights perfectly matches the serene surrounding fixed with wooden tables and chairs. The wooden table is perfectly designed by a native-ly designed material from Mindanao. By this Ramos felt, I guess, the need for us to stay here for maybe a couple of hours. Our dinner was served here. Perfect!    










While having our formal-Italian inspired dinner we had a round of discussion where in the topic was our blog and our travels. I felt the genuine hospitality and interest of our host in which he asked us to tell something about ourselves and our blog. But before that we already had a good laugh doing our "monsary-cheer" boys versus girls. Its actually our sixth monsary since we (those people on the group picture above) met last January in Binondo.
