LORELAND FARM RESORT Antipolo has evolved into something "fresh"and "exciting".

It has been five long years since our last visit at this Resort.It was here where we celebrated our 8th anniversary in 2008. We were still dating that time.I actually wrote a "lousy" blog post about the place that time reflecting my humble beginning as a blogger and I am amazed (and partly embarrassed) whenever I read how I accounted our experience.

Loreland has caught my attention again lately. I've been seeing a lot of changes (through social media) so we thought it would be nice to come back and check the place again.It didn't disappoint.I realized that the resort has held a special place in my heart.Seeing the transformation made my heart silently cheer.

LORELAND FARM RESORT Antipolo has evolved into something "fresh"and "exciting"!

RECEPTION AREA
Starting with the reception area, you get a feel of a fresh start. Definitely sets the good mood.It's comfortable,clean,spacious and bright.

Receptionists are polite and quick.I love quick service. Especially if you are coming in from a public commute, the last thing you want is to get stuck with the check-in process,lalo pag lagkit na lagkit at swimming na swimming kana.

For those with private vehicles,there is a large parking area right next to the gate.

A RESORT in a FARM

The word "farm" in the name is there not because they want to make it sound better but because it really is a resort in a farm.That's one thing I like about Loreland. Once inside the gate,you can feel that you are in a lush environment.That you can have for a 30-45 minutes drive from the Metro.

FAMILY, BARKADA, COUPLE's Resort
Meet Angel, she is my wife's youngest sister.We decided to adopt her when my mother in-law died last year since nobody is to take care of her.You will be seeing more of her in our future travels therefore.

Loreland Resort was her first out of town with us and it was a fitting introduction since Loreland ---other than being a favorite destination among barkadas and couples ---is also a family-friendly resort.

POOLS, POOLS and more POOLS

If I could recall correctly, there are around 14 pools scattered all over the resort.Each with a distinct accent. 5 Big, 6 Small ones and 3 Infinity pools at Luljettas Hanging Gardens.

The terrain, with its slopes and a lot of greens give the resort more contour and therefore a different appeal.Flat is boring.

Children's Pool

There are also two children's pools with slides that kids will surely enjoy.Aside from swimming in our private pool next to our villa accommodation, this is where Angel played for around half an hour before we transferred to Luljettas Hanging Gardens and Spa which is a new section of the resort.

My Favorite Spot
We all have our favorite spot in a place.This pool is my favorite.(Or should I say was, coz Luljettas hanging gardens has recently captured my heart).I remember it was here where we had a late night dip one January night in 2008. Remember, January is cold season in the Philippines and we went for a night swim. Kami lang yung tao sa pool that time.It felt exclusively ours.Who would dare swim on a chilly night by the way except for some crazy "love birds" , at kami yun.lol

Cottages
There are more than enough cottages scattered in the 8-hectare property that you can rent out for day trips and/or overnight stay.

Children's Play Area
When the kids are already tired of the water, there is a playground section near Verde Restaurant where kids could hang out.

OUR ROOM 

I had issues with the room we stayed in five years ago.It could use a little renovation so I thought paying 2,500 php was a waste.Now, rooms are fully renovated.No more complaining for me.

We stayed in a Villa with a private pool.The room is spacious with a king size bed.Perfect coz we didn't have to request for an extra bed for Angel.Flat screen 32-in cable tv fixed on the wall, a dining table just in case you bring in food, hot and cold shower. What else can I ask for.

VERDE RESTAURANT


The common misconception is that resort food is expensive.Well that is mostly the case.You feel robbed each time.I also thought food at Loreland. Surprisingly, it's cheap.With the amount of serving and quality, I thought they could increase the price a little more and I wouldn't even complain.My wife had to go through the hassle of carrying in food eh mas mura pa nga dito kesa sa mga fastfood store sa labas.

I also like the way they renovated Verde Restaurant retaining it's kugon roof for a native appeal while adding some modern fixtures and nice furniture.It's al fresco setting and for the true meaning of al fresco ---ang presko  talaga given the farm/garden setting.

This big serving of kare-kare is only 395php.Good for 2-3 pax.

Try Loreland's signature Fried Suman (sticky rice deli) with latik (oil coconut muscavado) topped with cashew nuts for only 85 pesos.

BREAKFAST
Breakfast for two is inclusive of room rates for in-house guests.

Wedding Reception

A Garden Wedding Reception?
Loreland prides itself as a famous venue for wedding and events.It's advantage is the big venue which could accommodate a large crowd.

LULJETTAS HANGING GARDEN and SPA
And now we have a new favorite spot in the Resort.
Luljettas Hanging Garden and Spa!
This place is a piece of heaven suspended on a hillside. Lulljetas is love.It is peace.It is exclusivity.

This section is exclusive for those who avail of Spa services.Meaning, not all main resort guests are allowed access to maintain the serenity of the place.One can go here either exclusively for Luljettas or as part of a package which includes the use of the main resort.
DSC_7521-1-2
I was amazed at how they were able to maximize the hillside space which was nothing but a cliff full of tress five years ago when we were here.

With Luljettas added to the attractions of Loreland Farm Resort, there are definitely more reasons to visit.Nothing that I have seen in the Philippines.It could definitely give expensive spa destinations a run for their money with its amazing location,awesome view and affordable quality services.As a consumer, it's one of those places you will willingly spend for.

I am excited to write a detailed post on Lulljetas next with tons of photos and I will link it here once its up.Please look for it soon!


CAMP TIPOLO ADVENTURELAND

For adventure lovers,Loreland is developing anothet section down the cliff they call Camp Tipolo Adventureland which is great venue for team building and recreation.It was already partially open during our stay.Unfortunately,we didn't have time to hike down.It would be great to try it next time we come back.

Five years and so many things have changed in this resort.All for the better. Loreland has been around for many years and whilst years of being in the business meant decay of facilities for many resorts,Loreland has shown how good management can well maintain a place and even evolve it into something fresh and exciting.This place is worth frequenting.

  13. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw
    away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to
    read?

  15. I believe everything said was very reasonable. However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added a headline to maybe grab people's attention? I
    mean "LORELAND FARM RESORT Antipolo has evolved into something "fresh"and "exciting"." is a little boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news titles to get viewers interested.

    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited
    about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it
    would make your website a little livelier.
