Chill Out, Feel the Love at Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa
By Trisha Mendoza
Do you want to unwind after a long and tiring week? Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens And Spa, which will host the romantic Valentine’s dinner in PropertyAsia.ph’s Valentine’s themed Facebook-based contest, is the perfect place in Antipolo City to chill out and forget about your worries.
Set in a mountain resort Loreland Farm Resort in Antipolo City, near Manila, Luljetta’s is surrounded by lush trees and landscaped gardens, the Laguna de Bay, and the Metro Manila skyline. It’s a spa like no other—being the first hanging gardens spa in the country—and has been named one of the Top 15 Summer Destinations Near Manila by OutOfTownBlog: “Nothing compares to Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa…its distance from Manila is perfect for a weekend getaway. It’s a hidden paradise where anyone can easily visit and relax.
“From its guest rooms to its beautiful water spas, everything has been carefully designed to be as enjoyable as possible.”
Luljetta’s, in fact, hangs over a mountain ridge; its spa facilities are meticulously carved into the mountainside.
In a recent interview with Manila Bulletin, Bienvenido Travel and Tours Managing Director Ramon Marinas, who’s also a part-owner of the resort, said, “Loreland Farm Resort has been here for 19 years. Back in the 1970s, the place was just a mango and kasuy plantation. The property has always been with my mom’s family for the past 40 years. It started out as a family resort until we all decided to open it to the public—hence, the birth of Loreland Farm Resort.”
He added, “The construction of the hanging gardens began four years ago; it officially opened in 2013.
“The hanging gardens’ name, Luljetta, is an Algerian name, which means ‘flower of life.’ Since my mom’s name is Lulita, my family thought ‘Luljetta’ would best fit my mom’s most beloved garden. However, guests often ask us how to spell or pronounce Luljetta because it’s not a common name in the Philippines.”
Luljetta’s spa facilities offer body polish, massage, spa enhancers, and a private pool party venue, among others. Romantic dinners and prenuptial shoots are regularly held here.
“Pamper yourself for seven hours at Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens And Spa. Take a dip in one the infinity pools; try the hydro massage, and end with a relaxing foot spa and body massage,” travel TV show host Carlo Lorenzo suggests.
Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens And Spa is located at Loreland Farm Resort, Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo City. Operating Hours: Monday-Friday, Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
