We are always in search of comfort places to go to without having to travel long and slow. Because yes, excruciating travel time and effort is a major downer for us and yes we can be as lazy as Bruno Mars in his lazy pants. With all the noise from the metro, we have found the peace and quiet not too far from the city lights and it is just an hour or two from Manila – The Greenery in Bulacan.
The Greenery is a popular pick for couples preparing for their big day and having prenup photos and videos. But no it is not just for couples, large groups of people can also enjoy the place as it is pretty big and perfect for company outings and team building (they have some obstacle course available for use). It is anything but crowded, as most of our complains from the usual go to resorts. For accommodation, they have Villas available instead of the common hotel type rooms which is a break from the usual and brings a homey feel into it. For a moment there, we felt like we own the place which is nice if it’s true. But unfortunately, we’re just as broke as a joke. That’s the feeling the place can give you, it makes you want to live there.
Since the place is a venue for different events, they have a lot of cool stuffs to look out for.
Once you reached the place, you will be welcomed in the classy old fashioned pavilion to check in and this cool train that is actually operational and can tour you around the place. A reservation is needed prior to coming to The Greenery.
Next is the pool, and what makes it better than the others? Privacy. There are times you can have the pool to yourself or just share it with a few people. Tranquility. It is an infinity pool with all the beautiful cottages and decks perfect for a laid back hot afternoon and a cold drink on hand. Though, they don’t serve any sort of shakes or smoothies which is sort of a bummer.
Lastly, of course, the beauty of nature. The name is not The Greenery for no reason. They have this lighthouse that you can climb into for a bird’s eye view of the place. The bridge that leads to a dock in a river or a bench surrounded by colorful flowers. The open garden where you can just run around, play and enjoy the breath of fresh air.
If you ever feel hungry, they serve good food and most of them are fresh. It is quite pricey but a fast-food delivery is not an option if you can have home cooked meals. They also serve breakfast buffets but don’t expect too much from it.
We will definitely go back and bring some reinforcements to appreciate the beauty of the place. Having said that, let’s go to:
How to get there
If you’ll bring in your car, then just google it. For the others like us, take the bus going to Baliwag from the Baliwag Transit bus station in Cubao. The last stop of the bus is where you get off and the landmarks are a really tall church and the public market. Take a tricycle ride from there going to Rio Vista Subdivision in Sabang. The Greenery is inside the subdivision and more likely than not, the driver knows the place.
Hi! The Greenery has updated their Day Tour package. For 1,200 per person, Day Tour (8am-6pm) now includes the use of pool, tram ride, and a lunch buffet. Overnight accommodation for the villa is now at 4,400 good for 2 pax. Thank you!
