7 Reasons why Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa is your next tranquil haven
Do you constantly feel the need to go out for pampering treats at malls and/or nearby hotels? the imploring want of booking a massage or body scrub session to release muscle stress from your everyday scheduled life? how about those planned dates at fancy restaurants?
What if I tell you, all the above-mentioned goodness PLUS more can be found in one destination? – Awesome right? how often would you find an all-in-one (and very unassuming) place where you can RELAX, PLAY, DINE, and have a GOOD TIME? That’s when we discovered Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa inside Loreland Farm Resort in Antipolo, Rizal Province.
While it is located on the same property as Loreland, Luljetta’s became a destination of its own. With its tropical themed cottages, water amenities, meditation lounges, lush gardens in its natural setting and a commanding view of Laguna de Bay and Manila, our dear guests would even name it as the Bali of the Philippines.
Luljetta’s is the FIRST AND ONLY Hanging Gardens and Spa in the Philippines.
Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa has two Infinity pools both overlooking the Sierra Madre mountain range. Picture perfect view!
..as I give you the SEVEN reasons why Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa is your next tranquil haven.
#1: You’ll want to have your me-time here
Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa is not only perfect for lovebirds, your group of friends, or families who’d want to have a dreamy getaway, but also for those who are into solo traveling (the single ones – haha) – everyone is welcome!
A getaway worthy of every peso spent, where you may even think the rates are too good to be true for all the inclusions! – I know I did. You’ll also not only have one, two, or three package options but FIVE! know more about the compositions on the last page.
Don’t feel like going by yourself, and would instead bring a date or your loved-ones? No problem at all! That’s actually a very good idea so they too could see and experience the only hanging gardens and spa in the whole country!
There are Hydrotherapy pools and other hydro massage amenities you, your friends, and your loved ones can utilize!
#2: The Dr. Fish pools are full of cute and hungry Garra Rufas
Aside from the fact that these pools (there are two, just a few meters away from the one you see above) help your tired feet get their much needed dead skin removal (naturally) – thanks to all Garra Rufas, you’ll also have the chance to release stress naturally because you’ll surely end up laughing your lungs out from all the ticking bites. Here’s proof:
Trust me – they pack tingling bites. Well, at least for the first 5-10 minutes, until your feet and soul get accustomed to the bites and instead of feeling ticklish, you’ll feel relaxed.
This area is also perfect for your next Social Media selfie or groupie! with little tweaks on your camera angle, your next photo could get your friends wanting the same photo/experience the soonest! Check out some of the angles you could use:
#3: Heavenly Spa Services
Luljetta’s “A Cup of Coffee Scrub” will not only make your skin smoother by removing dead skin to reveal the new, healthy skin underneath, but also aids in combatting the occurrence of varicose veins!
The caffeine found in coffee scrubs typically increases blood flow and helps the body to release toxins and fats held in the skin👌
These, plus more health benefits await those who choose to avail Luljetta’s Coffee Scrub. For only Php1200/hr, you will also get an Apricot Facial Scrub, Hair Scrub, Banana leaves wrap and Body Butter (after the scrub) for overall pampering. My skin felt so smooth and fragrant after the whole session!
Aside from Coffee Scrub, they also have Sweet Calamansi Scrub, Choc’late Scrub, and Red Wine Scrub.

#4: Antipolo’s Best Suman and Hearty Set Meal
After you’ve tried half (or all, if you’re that fast haha) of the amenities, you’ll surely get hungry. The best short break from your hanging gardens activities is indulging in their sumptuous suman (glutinous rice) paired with ripe mangoes, cashew and coconut sauce (latik). This dish is called “Antipolo’s Best Suman” or “Su-Ma-Ka” (Suman, Mangga, Kasoy). Best paired with iced lemongrass tea and the beautiful panoramic view of the Sierra Madre mountain range.
I have tried a lot of glutinous rice/rice cakes in my lifetime, but I can definitely recommend Luljetta’s for being uniquely delicious and addicting, yet healthy! This mouthwatering snack is included in all of their day-tour packages!
Luljetta’s set meal will complete your whole day of pampering with gastronomic pleasure. (Set Meal is included in all packages except Hanging Gardens Retreat Package) Take a look at all this goodness:
Pumpkin Soup, Salad, Tomato Herb Pasta, and Lemongrass Tea! Everything complimented each other perfectly – they were succulent!
And finish your meal with a rich chocolate mousse for dessert! (photo by Darwin Albasin of, edited by yours truly)
