The second leg of our family get-away last weekend was far more different from the unplanned Benguet trip. This time, we booked in a resort and events place in Metro Manila suburb called The Greenery. It’s a hidden place from the busy city, roughly an hour and a half drive from Metro Manila for first timers.
Unknown to many, The Greenery, Inc, in Baliuag, Bulacan was formerly called The TGI Pavilion. The place is not new, but it is well-maintained. I agree that it is a perfect location for pre-nuptial photoshoot and also for weddings because of the elegance and the breathtaking amenities. Actually, by the time we reached the place a wedding is about to happen.
We booked for two villas with extra bed. Accommodation per single villa during our stay, which is still considered lean season, costs around P6,000 plus P1,000 for extra bed. Don’t worry,it comes with free breakfast. The room is clean, cozy and the bathroom, spacious. You can enjoy the free wifi and cable television.
After we fixed our belongings, we ride on the TGI train. Yes, it is operational!
The train ride is a quick tour inside The Greenery. Every scene is great aside from the lagoon which I believe needs some attention from the management.
The largest villa with 5 rooms with C.R., kitchen, living room and balcony costs around P23,000 per night.
From the villa, you can see the tower and the lighthouse. I immediately went up the tower and took a picture of the scenery below.
The lighthouse bar.
The weather became a little gloomy in the afternoon.
The gazebo view from the tower.
Swimming started as soon as the kids saw the infinity pool.
Aside from swimming, The Greenery has facilities for team building. It has a vast space for jogging and golf.
You can also enjoy water sports like kayak and jetski. Yes, you can do these activities in the river.
They offer overnight accommodation, check-in time is 2:00 p.m. and check-out time is 12:00 n.n.
Only light snacks are allowed inside The Greenery. Corkage fee applies to food and liquors. Cooking inside the villa is strictly prohibited.
Foods for dinner/lunch costs P350.00 per head for a complete course.
NOTE: Their foods are really good, we enjoyed it and it’s worth the price.
GREAT TIP: To those familiar with NLEX-Bulacan, you can reach Baliuag in an hour if you travel through the bypass road upon exiting Balagtas toll, instead at Sta. Rita exit.
