My mom and her churchmates like Sonya's garden so much that they go there whenever they have an outing or reunion. She keeps on telling me how beautiful their garden is and how much she wants to get the plants there. (She has different variety of plants in our rooftop which I wanted to sell online. JK ma!) :-p
I got curious with all her stories and reviews online, so my friends and I decided to go there. According to their website, Sonya was an expat in the US and Europe. This place was her private paradise until she opened it to the public in 1998. Now they have a restaurant, bed & breakfast, spa, bakery, country store and they even offer a wedding package. Tan tan ta tan!
from parking lot to the entrance, it's green everywhere!
spa area, reminds me of Aladdin and princess Jasmine
We had a late lunch there, the menu served in sit down style. Rate is Php 610 per person. (All you can eat with refillable freshly squeezed dalandan juice) Nom nom nom!
