After your driver fetches you from Starbucks at SM Mall of Asia Complex Harbor Drive, you will head south to the province of Quezon, where the resort is located. Villa Escudero is one of the Philippines' premier resorts. It was originally a private plantation of sugarcane in the 1880s, owned by Don Placido Escudero and his wife Dona Claudia Marasigan. By the 1900s, their son, Don Arsenio Escudero, began converting the farm into a coconut plantation, and it had remained that way until today. Villa Escudero features coconut groves, a waterfall restaurant, a private museum, and a Philippine experience show, where both local and foreign visitors can discover the Filipino culture.
Once you arrive at the resort, you can visit the large 2,000 acre of the plantations. You will also see the performances of a local band and take a look at the historical artifacts, antique furniture, and World War II relics from the Escudero family at the resort’s museum. Feel free to go bamboo rafting at the resort, as well.
After exploring the plantation, go on and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the restaurant with the Labasin Dam Cascade in the backdrop. Dig into the hearty meal consisting of chicken tinola soup, a roast chicken salad, beef caldereta, tilapia grilled, and pork barbecue, as well as a delicious dessert. You can then walk around the villa again before taking a dip in the spring pools.
