Balinese inspired staycation experience at Cintai Corito’s Garden

BATANGAS – Nestled on the uphill of Lipa along Leviste Highway, Cintai Coritos Garden is a haven for those who want to detoxify from the hassle city life. The resort is only two to three hours away from Manila, making it one of the closest place for a quick break.

Me and my travel buddies giving our best pose in front of this beautiful door.

The Balinese inspired resort has a well attended garden which is graced by various kinds of fruit bearing plants, trees and orchids. Free roaming animals can also be seen around the ares and the Alpaca is something you shouldn’t miss. The management is planning to hang names and description of the plants here which is great for people who haven’t seen this much of various kinds of vegetation. 

Moving on, the villas are well maintained and crafted with Indonesian inspired interiors and exteriors. The rooms are not equipped with televisions nor Wifi service. I know… I know… we had the same reactions. But its one of their ways to help us to appreciate the place more without thinking about Twitter or Instagram. Yes, this is a place where netizens build real world connections.

Cintai has 18 villas total, classified as Deluxe Villa, Terrace Villa, Garden Villa, and Executive Villa. The Deluxe Villas has one queen-sized bed, personal bathroom, bar refrigerator, and its own terrace. The Terrace Villa has two queen-sized beds, and pretty much has the same amenities as the Deluxe Villa.

The good-for-six Garden Villa boasts of three queen-sized beds (two regular beds and a poster bed), a day bed with table setting, a personal bar ref, and an outside terrace. The more fab Executive Villa is the largest of the four types. It has its own jaccuzi and pocket garden. A butler shows up to assist. Meals are served straight to the terrace so guests can dine al fresco and in style. 

Everything here seem to be like an art waiting to be photographed, touched and appreciated. Food is great, especially the Balete Suman, a rice cake coated with creamy tablea chocolate sauce.
