Warm and cheerful hospitality in a rustic Philippine setting - this is the unique experience of Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort.
As the sun sets over the Mt. Malarayat Range, the Plantation takes on a totally new magic.Enjoy an overnight stay with a choice of four styles of accommodations to choose from - five star to rustic riverside houses.After dinner, served in the Coconut Pavillion on the shoreline of the Labasin River, await evening serenaders to put you in the mood for a restful sleep.
A favorite of visitors and a most memorable experience is to enjoy a lunch featuring special Escudero family recipes at the Labasin Waterfall Buffet. Delight in the sparkling waterfall and lush tropical vegetation. Most diners opt to dine at tables placed directly in the stream and enjoy the cooling spring water flowing over bare feet.
