When In Manila, and aching to travel somewhere beyond the city to celebrate something special, then Doña Jovita Garden Resort is the destination for you. A drive for less than 2 hours would take you to its resort filled with food, pools (including a hot spring), a lush mediterranean or garden getaway (you can choose from either of these) , and a short hike up in the hills right behind it.
It was my first time to visit the place and the first thing that caught my attention was this elegant and simplistic all-white set-up in Tita Lettie’s Grill. It’s not the usual sight you see in other resorts in Laguna, thus this was something I noted for future reference. (Perfect for a quick romantic getaway, perhaps?)
Later did I know that the set-up was actually new and specially designed for the night’s event– a humble celebration of the Earth Hour.
This was just a portion of the beautiful interior I saw that night. The lights were gleaming and the whites exuded a relaxed and peaceful vibe during the entire night.
Of course, the kubos looked extra posh that night as well. Perfect for those who want a more intimate gathering with a glimpse of the program.
