Hie away from the stress and the hustle of citylife, unbelievably less than two hours of a relaxing drive away from Ortigas CBD. Trekking up hill, with verdant views of the mountainous silhoutte and the gentle hues of the ricefields, the smooth and winding road of the JICA-led Marikina-Infanta road will surely detox your mind of its toxic clutters or may even lull it to an envigorating nap.
Pit-stop: Km. 72 of Marikina-Infanta Road at the edge of the enchanting Tanay Rizal.
The five-hectare property was originally acquired intended as an exclusive weekend family get-away. Dozens of tropical fruit-bearing trees like; mangoes, coconuts, guyabanos, calamansi, guavas, jackfruit etc were painstakenly planted by the owners and their farm hands over the years. Lush greens and eye-gasmic colorful flowers also adorn the whole lanscape of the property. Soon after, a main guest house with five bed rooms and a functional full-sized kitchen and a ground floor social hall, was errected. Then, a resort-type swimming and kiddie pools complemented the perfect tropical vacay feel that completed the dreamy aspirations of the owners that started the day they invested in this mountain paradise.
Throughout the years, the family resort has welcomed a number of happily recharged individuals already, mostly friends and family guests of the owners. It has become a perfect venue of a number of company outings and a more intimate office R&R /bonding sessions already. The resort has also paid host to a number of small church retreats in the past and as a romantic backdrop of special and initmate garden weddings all these years. Requests for accommodation of similar activities have become frequent, as many have started to see online pictures of the resort, however, the owners wish to put the exposure to a minimum since it was not acquired for those purposes in the first place. The resort was informally called YO & MO Farm (after the initials of the owners).
