It was my 26th birthday and the original plan was supposed to go out of the country, but had to cancel for more important matters. So, I searched for a place where I can go for just a day tour. Luckily, Luljetta’s is just an hour (or even less) away from where I live and since I’ve been wanting to visit the place, I decided to go. Thanks to Bienvenido Tours as I was able to book hassle-free! Check them out as they offer different tours around Rizal all at affordable price. ❤
HOW TO GO TO LULJETTA’S:
- Via Public Transportation:
- Ride the jeepneys bound to Antipolo Simbahan or Antipolo Shopwise/Tanay.
- Drop off should be: Antipolo Simbahan or Unciano/Shopwise
- Ride the tricycle and tell the driver to drop you off at Loreland Resort
- Via Private Car/GRAB/Angkas:
- Location is accessible via WAZE 🙂
In my case, I took the Angkas going to Luljetta’s and it was less than an hour motorcycle ride going up and it cost me like 120php one-way.
Luljetta’s Hanging Garden is the first and only gardens and spa in the Philippines. You will enjoy the amazing view of Laguna De Bay and the Metro Skyline while dining or swimming in any of the infinity pools just like I did.
Here’s what welcomed me:
The receptionist asked to check the copy of my reservation and gave me instructions on where to go next. I decided to order breakfast first while waiting for Luljetta’s to open as I arrived an hour early, there are several guests who’s having breakfast too, as the place also now offers rooms for those who would like to stay overnight. They offer lockers for those (like me!) who will only be staying for a day tour. There’s also a designated room on where you can change clothes and where you can take a bath. You’ll be given a basket that has a key (for the locker), a towel and a traditional bathrobe.
Before I left the room, I was told to always turn left to make sure that I will be able to check out all the amenities. Luljetta’s has a lot of pools and lounges to hang out.
I suggest that you visit on a weekday like what I did, as I was able to have the place all to myself. All staff is very accommodating and they’re so nice to take photos of me. LOL “Kuya, sige pindot lang po ng pindot. Ako nalang po mamimili mamaya. 😛” I guess this is one thing you’ll learn by traveling alone, aside from using a tripod, you might want make use of anything or anyone around you so you can have your photos taken. LOL
The place is ideal for relaxation. There are several pools and the view of the hanging garden was so nice. I also liked the sauna and the Jacuzzi even though I thought that it would burn me alive LOL as it was seriously hot so the staff asked me to try the mini infinity pool first which was so cold, but it gets better once you’re already in the water. Another thing I enjoyed was my free snack which was Antipolo’s suman with cashew nuts and an iced tea. It was so tasty!
If you would also want a quick escape from the Manila traffic and work/school deadlines head over to Luljetta’s Garden as its really a nice experience. I would definitely love to go back here! ♥
