Villa Escudero Plantation & Resort Day Pass

    What to Expect
    Welcome to Villa Escudero. About two hours away from Metro Manila, this convenient, refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of city life is your chance to recharge your batteries. Guests will tour the plantation on board a carabao drawn cart while being serenaded by a native band.

    A whole day tour to this popular tourist destination will offer you a glimpse of history, custom, cultural heritage and a taste of delectable Philippine cuisine. 

    It features a museum which houses the Escudero family’s vast collection of historic, religious and cultural artifacts, some dating back to pre-Hispanic times. 

    The highlight of the day is a sumptuous lunch, kamayan style (eating with your hands), served at the Labasin Waterfalls Restaurant. Bathe your feet in cool rushing water from a nearby lagoon. Immerse yourself in fun-filled outdoor recreational activities such as bamboo rafting and of course, a swim in Villa Escudero’s spring-fed pools to complete this memorable visit. In addition, enjoy the entertaining Philippine Experience Show which showcases the country’s rich culture through native dances from all over the Philippines.

    Yes, there is. The rooms are overlooking the lake, where you can ride a bamboo balsa and paddle through the lake. It’s a good experience. All in all excellent.
