Philippines: Afternoon at Luljetta Hanging Gardens, Antipolo, Rizal

By Tin Gallemaso - 5:37:00 PM

Can't decide if this afternoon in Luljetta Hanging Gardens was swimming, water spa, or pictorial. Okay, a little bit of everything na lang.

This was supposed to be that one thing that we're going to look forward to in February so we bought the tickets this month. However, when we called to reserve the date that we were intending to visit, it was already fully booked.

We were like, 
Siya: Puno na raw 'yung date. Morning and afternoon.
Ako: Paano na? Ibang date? March?
Siya: Ang tagal! This week? Isip na lang tayo ng ibang pupuntahan sa Feb.?
Ako: Ibang pupuntahan??? Oh sure. Okay. Let's go!

Madaling kausap. HAHA! At ayan na nga, mabuti pa ang mga biglaan e natutuloy. 😂


You can purchase discounted tickets in the link above. After purchasing, reserve your slots by calling or e-mailing Luljetta.

This was reserved three days prior our arrival. We submitted a photo of our ID and a Health Declaration Form via Google Forms a day before our schedule. Of course, we had searched about the risks of this activity (swimming) before going there. I also talked to a doctor friend and I was assured that safe naman mag-swimming basta iwas daw sa ma-tao. 

Upon registration, we were given this basket with two towels and two robes to use inside the hanging garden. We were then escorted to the locker room where we changed into our swimwear.

This remains my favorite out of all the pools.

At naghihila lang ako ng shorts niyan sa picture. There's a sauna beside this and using it is included in the package. I don't know why we didn't try entering the sauna room though.

While in the jacuzzi, we "planned" on how we're making the most of the next consecutive hours inside. We decided to walk around the whole hanging gardens first, take photos and if time permits, go back to were we liked the most. There's actually a signage asking guests to limit the jacuzzi stay for 15 minutes and we obliged.

Recreated this photo.
Had similar looking photo from the first time I went here in 2014.  The pools are still the same but there were a lot of improvements.

Fish Spa Area

This is not my first time trying a fish spa out but I couldn't last several minutes with my feet dipped in here. I don't know what happened to me 'cause this experience used to be enjoyable and ticklish but it's freaking me out now.

Hydro-massage Pool

We stayed there for several minutes. Hindi lang for photo 'cause we actually used the hydro-massage area. Haven't had a PROPER body massage since ECQ. Parang gusto ko ng Thai Massage!

There were other guests that day but we kinda avoided everyone and we were successful in doing so except at the infinity pool. It felt like we had the whole place to ourselves most of the time.

This "dinousaur" nest was placed along the walkway near the infinity pool. There was a group swimming when we arrived in this area so we decided to take our time by taking lots of photos AGAIN.

We placed our baskets here. Rehydrated ourselves since there's also a water station and took more photos.

We swam together with the group but they left after several minutes leaving only the two of us there. Lahat na ata ng angle e nakuhanan habang nandito sa pool na 'to eh.

The sun sets on that side so almost all photos taken here were silhouette shots.

Tinatanaw ko lang kung saan kami next. 💁🏻‍♀️ Nakikita mo ba ang nakikita ko? East pa rin ba tayo??
Hala ka! Ito na naman akoooooo. 😂

Had the entire area to ourselves for around 30 minutes our so. ❤️

Eto talaga 'yung na-miss ko eh. 'Yung mga kwento habang nasa labas at hindi lang sa chat. 'Yung totoong tawanan. Nakatingin sa kung saan, sa malayo, sa isa't isa. Doon sa tahimik, sa walang ibang tao, sa walang face mask. Alam mo 'yon. Kahit nanginginig na kaming dalawa dahil sa suot namin at sa lamig ng tubig sa pool at hangin, keri lang. 😂

Ginusto namin 'to eh. 😂

Tangkad yern? 
Hahahahaha. O diba, my photog. Galing daw sa ibaba para mukhang matangkad. Lahat talaga eh. 😂
Pero, tangkad nga yern?? 😂

I think this is the most famous photo spot in the whole of Luljetta.

As I mentioned above, we hung out for a bit while seated there. What really happened that afternoon was more kwento and tawa while looking at the view instead of swimming.

When other people arrived, we left for the restaurant to claim our merienda.

Tables are sanitized. 
Area is overlooking Laguna Bay.

There are two package options for day tours.

One is this, and the other more expensive one is a rice meal. We opted for this 'cause we wanted to eat somewhere in Sumulong Highway but yeah, we weren't able to do that since this was on a Friday and we noticed that most restaurants were packed that night.

Laguna Bay

After eating, we walked around again. We went back to the hydro-massage and infinity pools.

More and more people were going to the infinity pool so we decided to head back to this pool were we stayed until around 5 PM.

Take note, btw, that the water here is very cold. We tried staying by the ledge but we were both shivering while talking. We then stayed near the pool stairs and sat with only our feet soaked and it was more bearable.

Dipped at the jacuzzi again before going back to the locker room.

We shall be back for you again, Luljetta's Place.




This is near Cafe Agusta. Babalik dapat kami doon but it was past sunset when we left Luljetta so we opted for an overlooking restaurant along Sumulong Highway pero marami rin tao kaya wala rin. K lang. K lang. 


Seoul, South Korea: World Cup Park

The funny thing about travelling during this pandemic is how paranoid we are at the sight of a crowd. It's usual for me to travel to places that are not packed with people but it feels different now. Infairness ha, ang hirap ng may iniiwasan na hindi mo alam kung ano o saan ba 'yung dapat mong iwasan. Parang something's always there but there's nothing. Also, parang feeling that nothing's there but there is pala. AHAHAHAH. Kita mo. Kagulo! Praning!
