Luljettas HANGING GARDEN and SPA Antipolo

This  is what I mean when I said something "exciting" has arrived at Loreland Farm Resort Antipolo, the newly developed section on the hillside they call Luljettas HANGING GARDEN and SPA.

Heaven Suspended on a Hill

They did great in transforming this hillside property into what it is now.It took years to develop and that's the good part of it because it was well thought of.

I was already aware of this new development before coming here but I was still blown away when I saw it in person.I used to have a favorite spot at the main resort but this one is now my favorite place.I call it "Heaven Suspended on a Hill." Luljettas is love.

Luljettas HANGING GARDEN and SPA 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.


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.

For somebody to conceptualize and create something this beautiful, there can be only one explanation ---that this is a result of LOVE'S LABOUR.


I took the libertyof dividing the area into 4 sections for easier description.

--Sauna + Jacuzzi + Infinity Pool

The uppermost level is where the reception is.This is also where services like pedicure and foot spa are done.One can instantly notice classy white tents complete with wooden chairs and table setup.At the end is the outdoor Jacuzzi, small infinity pool and a cottage housing the sauna.

It was here where we stayed for a while.My wife and Angel enjoyed swimming at the infinity pool.The pool might be small but being located at the corner with a giant tree on the background makes for a romantic swim.Feels like a private pool in an exotic setting.
Sauna anyone?

2. LOWER LEVEL--Fish Spa
The Lower Level is more of a transition area to the Lower 3rd and Lowermost Level. Stop by a small pond and experience "fish spa".From here,one can see more clearly what lies below and for sure you will get excited to go down another level.

Feel free to slow down and rest in one of these benches and appreciate the view.There are many of these meditation spots where one can just relax and clear ones mind.

3. LOWER THIRD LEVEL ---Hydro Pool + Zen Lounge

The Lower 3rd Level is where things start to get exciting.I consider it the heart of Luljettas being the section with he largest infinity pool and the most panoramic view of Luljettas. And it's not just an ordinary infinity pool, it's a hydro pool similar to that of Ace Water Spa.Imagine Ace Water Spa in an outdoor/nature setting.That's quite a luxury. Kulang nalang hot spring water para Japan Japan na ang peg.

This section is also the most photogenic area with the three huts (used for massage therapies) cascading as if hanging on a cliff.

Another favorite spot of mine is Zen Lounge which is an open air hut with a romantic, native feel.Sarap tumambay dito.

Because of it's kugon roof, the shade remains cool even during noontime. Presko ng hangin.Probinsyang probinsya ang dating. This is where we had dinner too.Very romantic place.

there are restrooms at Zen Lounge for your convenience

---Buddha Lounge + Infinity Pool

Below Zen Lounge is Buddha Lounge which I consider part of the Lowermost Level.Same comfy, native feel but more exclusive as it is an enclosed space.

It's more spacious than Zen Lounge and more intimate in appeal.A more private space perfect for honeymooners.There is a day bed which is very inviting.Being at the lowest level, it feels like you are deeper in the forest and the peace you get is really something yo ucan hardly achieve in any place this close to the Metro.
Furniture and other interior accents are sourced from Palawan and Benguet.They are quite exotic (especially the ones from Palawan) and are consistent with the Asian theme of the Spa.Another strong point of Luljettas ----consistency.
This is where we decided to have our pedicure session at night before moving to one of the massage huts which is also in lowermost level.

There are a total of theree (3) Infinity Pools at Luljettas and this is the third one located at the lowest level right below Buddha Lounge.


An area for weddings and events is also located at the Lowermost Level.One can reserve the place partly or wholly. Here, a birthday or wedding of your dreams can come true.



There are still no accommodations at Luljettas.The option is to book a separate accommodation at the main resort.One can have a room for two for as low as 2,500php.I highly suggest this because that way, you can prefer to stay until the Spa section closes at 11pm and there's no need to rush.In my case, I prefer having massage at night when everything is set and there's nothing else to do but go to bed afterwards.I think we finished having foot spa and massage at around 10pm. Our Villa accommodation was just a couple of meters hike up.


Luljettas is indeed full of surprises.As of the moment, food served for Spa guests still come from the main resort restaurant ---VERDE.If you are staying until closing (11pm) or overnight,it's suggested that you place your orders before 8pm.

Pretty soon though, Luljettas Hanging Gardens and Spa will have its own F&D. And this restaurant will soon do the job.

It came as another surprise.The setup here is indeed unique.You can hardly find this kind of setting in the Metro and surrounding area.Ibang level to.


We had something light for dinner thinking that we needed to have massage afterwards.Some pasta and fruits from Verde restaurant and an intimate setting at Zen Spa. Sarap!


I was a bit apprehensive about the Spa services at Luljettas thinking that the place is newly opened.The physical environment might be good but it will be useless if one of the main reasons why you are ---Holistic Pampering---fails.

It was comforting to learn that their therapists have been doing what they do for years.My wife's therapist said she has been with Loreland for 5 years while mine has been working with them for 3 years.Turns out that they have been offering Spa services even before Luljettas was completed and they surely delivered the quality service we expected.

We had foot spa first at Buddha Lounge with the night view of Metro Manila from its wide glass window.The place really felt high end. Parang nasa exclusive resort lang or private house lang kami :)

After our foot spa, we transferred into one of the three huts specifically designed for massage.Again, beautifully designed huts with attention to detail.We stayed in a 4-bed massage hut complete with a shower area.

My masseur was surprisingly good.I initially told het I needed deep tissue massage and that's what I exactly got.I like the way she combined strong-slow presses with quick but on-the-spot strokes.Hindi porket hard massage is hagod lang ng hagod.It's really about hitting the right pressure spots and nodules.

I would therefore give Luljettas my #3 Best massage ever in terms of the Therapy itself and #2 Best when it comes to overall experience given the amazing setting.Aum Spa at Crimson Resort Mactan still holds the #1 spot.

this view from the massage hut

Php 500.00 per person at any of the following choices

Package 1:
45 min foot spa and 1 hour full body massage
Package 2:
5 hour stay and use of water amenities at Phase 1 of Spa (sauna, hydro pool, heated jacuzzi and dr. fish spa)
Package 3:
Consumable of food and beverage at Verde Resto to be served at Luljetta's Hanging Gardens

Now is the best time to go because they have the above package promos until August 31.

Reward yourself with this amazing view of Manila's expanding skyline.

There.I have said so much about the place.I assure you though that despite all the superlatives I used to describe Luljettas and all the juicy photos, the actual experience will still be different.

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, quality services and affordable rates.As a consumer, it's one of those places you will willingly spend for. They can increase their rates a bit higher and I will not dare complain. The place has all it takes to be a high end Spa destination.

  9. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
