I was glad to stumble upon Jordan's place as it allowed our family to have that well-deserved bonding time. The place is HUGE and the decor was truly BALI-INSPIRED.
We were allowed to check-in as early as 8 am since there were no tenants prior us. However, due to the horrible traffic (road construction), our trip took longer than expected. BUT, it was very scenic as you can see the mountain while on the road and we were still able to arrive earlier than the published check-in time.
We were greeted by the caretaker and immediately given a tour of the place. It was MAGNIFICENT. The 2 air-conditioned rooms were SPACIOUS, the was bathrooms were well-kept (yes, hot shower is available), and the pool is BIG and DEEP (do not leave kids unattended).
The caretaker recommended for us to have lunch in Arabela, which is in the town proper. It was a quaint little resto that serves good food (price is reasonable too). For dinner and breakfast, we ate Jordan's place and coordinated with a customized menu with the manager. The food was fresh, tasty, and well-prepared, it honestly EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS.
If you LOVE NATURE, OPEN SPACES and are LOOKING TO ESCAPE MANILA but not willing to go too far, this is the place to be.
-You get the whole place when you book.
-Since the place is like a big garden, strange animal noises can be heard at night (don't freak out haha)
-It's pretty secured (we were told that there's security at night and the whole place is shut tight)
-The caretaker and manager are very pleasant and easy to talk to.
