Waterfalls are some of the most majestic and mysterious sites in the world, but getting close can not only be difficult, but also dangerous. The Villa Escudero Resort of San Pablo City in the Philippines offers a one of a kind experience for guests to get up close and personal with a roaring waterfall while enjoying their lunch! Their waterfall restaurant sits at the foot of the Labasin Falls where guests can enjoy local cuisine at handmade bamboo tables while clear spring water runs over their feet. The falls are so people friendly, guests can even lie against the rushing water covered wall for quick massage or post-lunch rinse off. This is one resort where no shirt and no shoes are no problem!
The entire villa is in fact a historical plantation surrounded by mountains and coconut trees. Once guests have dried off from their refreshing lunch, they can enjoy numerous local activities such as bamboo rafting, birdwatching, and can even venture off to nearby rural villages on a ox-drawn jeepney. Coconut harvesting lessons are also available on the plantation grounds.
The Villa Escudero resort is nestled deeply into its placid natural surroundings, offering breathtaking views of the Philippine countryside year round.
