TreeHouse

I personally think that this is the most beautiful accommodation of all. Additionally, this room is good for 6-8 persons. More to that, the room is spacious. Its interior is simple yet amazing! Thus, you would love to stay here for a long time. If you have decided to go staycation in Quezon and stay overnight, you can choose this option.

The air-conditioned works perfectly fine. It is cool inside which makes you feel more relaxed. In addition, the bathroom is nice. Its bathtub looks inviting. But, there’s something wrong with its hose attachment so you can’t use it well.

Not to mention, there are already cupboards inside that you can use. Also, the veranda is also wide. The wooden table and chairs are in rustic design. Certainly, it makes the place look classic. Above all, this treehouse is good for relaxation.

Elsa Cafe

This is the only cafe that they have in the resort. The staff is really accommodating and friendly. They serve Lucban Longganisa and other food at a reasonable price. Furthermore, the cafe is just outside the Tree House. In fact, the tables and chairs are also in rustic design. It’s amazing how the cafe looks aesthetically pleasing.

The Hanging Bridge

This is right next to Elsa Cafe. There are two hanging bridges in the area. They are both good for picture-taking. However, you can’t go to the first bridge and you can’t go across it. The thing is, the other one is the gateway to get down the resort. You may take the bridge to reach the first station of the cross as well as the “batis” and go swimming in the cold water of it.

Batis

Personally, this is my most favorite spot in the resort. I had fun swimming here! It is definitely clean. In the same way, its water is fresh and natural because it is coming down from the mountain. Similarly, you will enjoy dipping yourself in the cold freshwater of the stream.

In addition, you will notice the sculptures of the different animals surrounding the area. It feels like you are in a jungle.

Station of the Cross

As I mentioned above, there are two Stations of the Cross. That is to say, the first one is near the stream. By the way, you need to go up the hill from the stream in order to get to the other station which is known as the Cristo Rey tower. It surely is exhausting because going up the hill is no joke. Despite that, once you reach the top, you will realize that it is totally worth it!!!

If you are fortunate enough, you can get a chance to witness the breathtaking view of Mt. Banahaw. Needless to say, we have made it!!! We were able to see Mt. Banahaw’s beautiful landscape after the rain!!!

Mt. Banahaw

Get a glimpse of the beautiful view of Mt. Banahaw by visiting the Cristo Rey tower. You will get to fall in love with it. More to that, you will be able to appreciate more nature!!

Mini Amusement Park / Mini Playground

In addition, there are some sculptures of zoo animals. There are also swings, slides and a seesaw placed in the area. Thus, it is the best place for children and for those who are a kid at heart.
