There’s this Italian saying ‘Dolce Far Niente’ that means doing nothing. it’s actually an art, an active pursuit of rest, relaxation, and just never minding your problems and worries.
It’s hard sometimes, isn’t it? I must admit that I am one of those people who have to always do something to feel fulfilled. Until this year, I realized even more that rest is also productive. To be at your best, you need to rest.
For that much needed wellness getaway, I recently went to this relaxing place in Antipolo, just about an hour or more travel, and it’s the first-ever and only hanging gardens spa in the Philippines. They’ve been around for quite some time now and because of their proximity from Manila, they’re one of the go-to places for family getaways in Antipolo.
Here, you can enjoy their sauna, heated jacuzzi, hydro-massage pool, infinity pools, and meditation lounges where you can do absolutely nothing. They also serve soothing teas, good food, and of course, Antipolo’s best suman. They also have giant swing for an additional fee!
I’m talking about Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa with packages for as low as P1399 per person. They’re going to hand you a towel and this traditional bathrobe while you’re here.
Don’t forget to avail their Signature massage, coffee or chocolate scrub, and their other spa enhancers for the full experience. They also have great deals that come in couples or family packages!
You can also stay here for a night or more at Luljetta’s Garden Suites. They have rooms for couples and families with breakfast and access to their facilities.
In this time time and age, we all have this tendency to downplay our stress and tiredness that’s why often we postpone days off or activities that heal our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. So I say, give yourself a break, you deserve to mag-relax at Luljetta’s.
