Recently, I was invited to be part of a little get-together for bloggers in one of the resorts in Batangas. The resort that is not that known much as a travel destination but more of as a wedding destination is no other than, Abby’s Garden Resort.
Arrived just in time before the gathering started, I was surprised that the place doesn’t look like a resort at all. Thus, it seems like I entered a huge private property where a mansion was built and surrounded by lush green view with flowers of different shapes and colors.
Mr. James Hernandez, Abby’s Garden Resort’s General Manager, was there to personally give us a warm welcome. We were immediately led by their friendly and courteous staff to our respective rooms located at the second floor of the hotel.
Abby’s Garden Resort was established on March 06, 2009. It was intentionally designed for weddings, corporate events, seminars & meetings, debut, anniversaries, birthday parties, school picnics and team building activities. The resort also caters to a camping style vacation for huge group activities.
A family-oriented resort, Abby’s Garden Resort also provides a relaxing haven for parents and kids with its Mediterranean/European inspired 3-storey hotel rooms that lavish comfort and style. Its leisure facilities include family and children’s pools few meters away from the garden where they could run through a retreat with nature after a refreshing dip.
The place may look so-so but here’s some photos from a recently concluded wedding (and reception) that will prove you wrong.

If you’re looking for a venue for your corporate events, Abby’s Garden Resort can be one of your options too as it provides a huge function hall and a gazebo right beside the garden that can accommodate 150-200 participants.

You might wondering how much a night would cost you when you stay here, eh? I was able to get the full price list from the management so, below table can be your reference:
|Family Suite 1||5 pax (standard);
12 pax (max)
|1 King Size and 1 Queen Size Bed||Php5,000/night||There’s a Php250 payment for every additional single mattress and Php300 per queen size mattress|

|Deluxe Rooms 1||2 pax (standard); 6 pax (max)||1 Queen Size Bed||Php4,000/night||There’s a Php300 fee per additional queen size mattress; located at the 2nd floor of the hotel building which has a great view of the garden and swimming pool.|

All rooms are air conditioned, has private toilet & bathroom, television, and refrigerator. Please take note that rates posted are exclusive of breakfast but they can serve complimentary one upon request.
If you do not have any plans on spending a night at the resort but just wanted to take a dip in the pool, you may have an all-day access on their pool for only Php150/head if you’re an adult, and Php75 for children.
A strong Wi-Fi connection is available but it’s only accessible at the Ground Floor of the Hotel Building. It’s a good factor for me because that means I can have real face-to-face conversations with friends. Aside from being a wedding destination, I recommend this place to people who just want to get cozy and have a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s very affordable and definitely family-friendly.
