Villa Escudero is located in Quezon Province, Philippines, offering a vast hacienda filled with comfortable rooms, and a museum of curious things. Perhaps the most curious thing at the villa is the amazing Waterfalls Restaurant, where lunch is served against an impressive backdrop of thundering clear spring water. Grass fringed buffet stations and bamboo dining tables stand steadily in just inches of flowing river water from the sparkling falls, as it washes around the feet of diners enjoying delicious local dishes. The experience of dining as water is running over your feet would certainly create a memorable holiday moment, and possibly one of your most unusual experiences ever, as they boast this â€œis a truly singular and memorable experience only Villa Escudero can offer.â€
The rest of Villa Escudero is equally nature bathed, with stunning views from bamboo decks overlooking the still waterscape of Lake Labasin, and the tropical Philippine countryside.
The luxury resort offers the chance to paddle a native bamboo raft over the peaceful waters or, if you’d like to get back on dry land for a while, a tour of the rural village by jeepney; you can even learn how coconuts are harvested in Villa Escudero’s own plantation!
