Hacienda Darasa in Batangas

Last weekend (Jan28-29) our  team went to Tanauan, Batangas and stayed overnight in Hacienda Darasa Garden Resort Hotel. My second time to celebrate my birthday without hubby and my daughter.

Hacienda Darasa Garden Resort Hotel sits on a lush 4-hectare plantation offering an exclusive location for that perfect bonding experience. Within rows of Mahogany trees and amid fruit-bearing trees like Mangoes, Durian, Rambutan, Avocado, and rare ornamental plants, the resort's natural surroundings provide the best backdrop for activities that bring you closer to the people important to you.

From a couple's intimate respite, to a convention of up to 500 people, Hacienda Darasa has the ambiance, activities, facilities and services to ensure a most memorable stay. Aware of your essential needs, its 'no-frills' amenities allow for affordable comfort while keeping that distinguishing traditional Filipino character as venue for your special interactions.
For your stay for business, tourism, or even for a comfortable stop-over before your next destination-

With colleagues – for
Teambuilding Activities, Seminars, Conventions, Meetings, Product Launches, Outings, Retreats, other Events;
With friends and loved ones - for Birthdays, Weddings, Debuts, Graduations, Reunions, Parties, other Milestones-

At Hacienda Darasa Garden Resort Hotel, let Nature bring you closer together.

Kids pool

For sure all of kids will surely enjoy this pool because its so big.

Adult Pool

This was a hit from all of us.

During communication before the trip, they gave us the dormitory room but when we got there, they upgrade us to cabanas. The dormitory rooms were occupied by the ABS-CBN peeps, they shoot X-Factor in the garden area of the resort :)

This is the cabanas.

And our place in Darasa

The cabanas are so big. In their website, they offer this for 8 to 10 people pero kasya ang 15 people. Mind you were 15 pax pero maluwag pa rin kami sa unit. Unit is clean and well-maintained and i lurve their pillows.

View outside the cabanas units.

This area is for the teambuilding activities but we never dare try it kasi we prefer to swim and drink liquors. Upon settling to our place, we prepare ourselves to leave and go to Waltermart to eat and buy food. Waltermart is 5 to 10 minutes away from Hacienda Darasa.

Chucky and i are January birthday celebrant so we treat the team to dinner after doing the grocery. Restaurant choices in Waltermart are very few so we go with Mang Inasal. Gusto ko sana sa Jollibee para bago naman. haha

Early dinner in Mang Inasal. Akalain mo yun 2 tables lang kami.

Happy Birthday to us Chucky... Cheers!

Our food

Di naman kami obvious na matakaw sa chichiria no?

This is the loft of the cabanas unit. Sarap mag-stay sa loob kasi ang lamig :)

We started to swim late in the afternoon till night.

Since kami lang ang tao sa pool, dun na kami uminom kasi ang lamig ng tubig. Actually bawal ang food and drinks in that area pero matigas ang ulo namin ska wala naman sumita eh... hehe 

After swimming, we went back to our unit and continue the inuman session. Super saya lang namin nun.

Our overnight stay has a complimentary breakfast for 15 people.

My first time to try Kapeng Barako. I liked it but dissapointed with the food. I was expecting some bacon, hotdogs choz! choosy pa eh libre naman yun. hehe

Pictures taken at around 10am (Sunday) before leaving the place.

Teambuilding is really fun and i recommend Hacienda Darasa if you're looking for a place for team buildings, outings, or any occasion like weddings, birthdays etc.
