If you and your significant other aren’t the type of couple to do the traditional chocolates-flowers-dinner routine on the 14th, go on a romantic weekend getaway instead!
Here are a few locations along the outskirts of Metro Manila that can offer you a one-of-a-kind Valentine’s experience!
Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa
Loreland Farm Resort, Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo, Rizal
12:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Call to reserve: 570-2532, 695-1965
If both of you can get the entire weekend free, don’t miss your chance to recharge at the Philippines’ only hanging gardens and spa in Antipolo City!
It’s about a three-hour drive away from Metro Manila (factoring in traffic), with all the amenities you could wish for, including three infinity pools, Filipino-inspired massage cabins, cozy group lounges, fish pools, jacuzzis, saunas, and an in-house cafe.
Don’t miss their Romantic Getaway for 2 package for February, which includes an overnight stay in romantic accommodations, free snacks, and five-hour access to Luljetta’s Place Garden Suites and Hanging Gardens Spa. You can also opt for add-ons like a romantic dinner for an additional fee.
This package is available for the whole month of February 2018 for just P6,888!
Guest slots are limited and you need to reserve three to seven days before your preferred dates, so book now via call or email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Pinto Art Museum
Grand Heights Rd, Antipolo, 1870 Rizal
Tuesday-Sunday, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Call to reserve: 697-1015 (Walk-ins welcome)
Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City is a 1.2-hectare compound composed of six individually themed galleries, outdoor art installations, decorative wells and fountains, and well-tended pocket gardens.
The museum’s galleries and gardens are all camera-friendly, as long as you don’t disturb or disrupt other guests—perfect for your next IG couple shot! Sit at one of the many shaded seating areas or make your way to the Pinto Cafe for a comfortable break.
Guests are encouraged to wander and visit whichever section of the museum they please. Pick up a printed map of the museum at the entrance to make you don’t get lost!
It should take you about three hours to drive from the metro to the museum. Rodel Flordeliz at the Nognog in the City blog also created a commuter’s guide to Pinto Art Museum for those coming from Metro Manila.
RAVE: Rainforest Adventure Experience
Francisco Legaspi, Pasig, Metro Manila
Monday-Saturday, 8:00 AM – 12:00 AM
Call to reserve: 642-5280 (Walk-ins welcome)
Formerly known as the “Pasig Rainforest Park”, RAVE is a big park in Pasig with a wide range of available attractions and activities to appeal to different types of couples.
Their Adventure Park is a sporty couple’s dream, complete with zipline, wall climbing, rappelling, obstacle course, and off-road biking track.
Visit the aptly named aMAZE Garden (a maze bush garden a la Alice in Wonderland), rent a pedal boat at the Boating Lagoon, or picnic and relax at the picturesque Flower Park.
RAVE charges an entrance or usage fee per attraction, so it’s important to know beforehand which of them you want to visit and buy the corresponding tickets at the gate in one go. (Pasigueños get a special discount on all entrance and attraction tickets!)
Check out their online map beforehand to familiarize yourself with the layout of the park!
