Situated about an hour away east from Manila, Antipolo city is known as a Catholic pilgrimage site. It was indeed an incredible opportunity to be part of Antipolo Media Tour 2019, all carefully designed by the one and only Mr. Mon of Bienvenido Tours. We were toured around the best parts of this city and experienced some of the interest things Antipolo has to offer.

Stay. Mount Purro Nature Reserve

Mount Purro Nature Reserve is a family-run eco-park, tucked away in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. It has a handful of rooms with protection from mosquitoes and other varieties of insects to make sure every guest will have a blissful sleep. It’s open for day trips and staycations. Here, one can enjoy the peaceful and serene side of Antipolo. Mount Purro Nature Reserve also implements a no-WiFi policy to encourage guests to disconnect for a moment from the noise of the modern world.

Mount Purro is an ideal hideaway for families, small or big groups, or even solo travelers. It offers carefully designed indoor and outdoor activities regardless of the season.

Eat. Loli’s Kitchen

Loli’s kitchen is Mount Purro Nature Reserve’s in-house restaurant. They strongly put into practice the “no use of MSG” ( Monosodium Glutamate) and only use organic ingredients to their food. This makes their food offering all-natural, healthy, and absolutely delicious! During lunchtime, they serve buffet that offers Filipino food, such as pinakbet, monggo, ensaladang talong, etc. They also prepare freshly harvested bananas and fried sweet camote from the Dumagat Tribe.

Don’t you all agree? As Loli’s Kitchen reminds us, let us be mindful of FOOD WASTE. On the right photo is a very sweet Turon! (banana rolled with spring roll wrapper and fried)

Eat. Tipulo Modern Filipino Cuisine

Tipulo restaurant (named after a tree that is native in Antipolo) will never disappoint you from satisfying your cravings for authentic Filipino food. All dishes are freshly cooked by their chefs who personally greet their guests to make sure they are happy with the food. Must-try dishes include their kare kare, deep fried pata, and sinigang na hipon.

Tipulo restaurant can be found inside First Pacific Leadership Academy. They only serve checked-in guests of FPLA. The place is very quiet calm and secluded, ideal for couples and travelers who want to have some privacy. The prices are affordable too! Tipulo deserves a two thumbs-up for serving one of the most luscious Filipino cuisines I’ve personally tasted.

Eugenio Lopez Center

Eugenio Lopez Center doesn’t have the ambitious entrance nor does it claim to stand out among hotels or accommodation that you can find in Antipolo City, yet, it has the perfect spot that offers an amazing view of the city. The view is especially wonderful at night.

It has over 38 guests rooms. Likewise, the center caters as a venue for special events like seminars, corporate parties, or meetings.

Eat. Oscar’s

I suggest going for dinner at Oscar’s which offers sumptuous ontinental and Filipino cuisine. Must-try is their monster burger and sinigang na bangus belly with watermelon. After filling your hungry stomach, indulge with their sweetest piece of cheesecake. I completely gave in that I couldn’t stand up from my chair anymore!

Furthermore, live jazz music is ready to serenade you while sipping your favourite glass of wine, enjoying the perfect view of Manila.

Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens & Spa

I guess many people have already heard of Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens & Spa. It is probably one of the most stayed accommodations and most instagrammable places in Antipolo. You will be welcomed by their well-groomed and warm staff. You will enjoy their spa facilities that include a heated jacuzzi, sauna, and infinity swimming pools. You will also set to have a good-night sleep in their rooms with beds that are very comfortable and cozy.

When you’re checked in as a guest at Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa, the breakfast buffet is an option, otherwise, you can have the plated ones.
