Casa San Pablo have been home to many honeymooners, vacationists and have hosted a number of extremely fun team-buildings. Having heard so many praises for this bed and breakfast place in San Pablo, I have put it in my Bucket list and it took me by surprise that I would be able to visit the place and experience a slice of lifestyle they offer.
It was actually the second stop of our CALABARZON Kulinarya Tour hosted by DOT Region 4-A (also known as CLABARZON).
There's nothing more you could ask for when booked a stay-cation here. Doesn't this pool just invites you? Only an hour and a half from Manila, you can either stay for the weekend or make this a night place when you need to explore the different provinces of Laguna and Quezon.
What used to be a coconut farm had been transformed as a mini-Bagiuo with pine trees distributed around the lush land.
One has to walk towards the main office for a luxurious 10-minute tour passing through the swimming pool and across a suspension bridge.
Endowed with a sprawling sheet of green grass and spruces of flowering plants and fruit trees, the land owned by the Gomez' it serves to be a serene place, somewhere you just needed o escape the hurried city life to.
Though made for the modern way of life, it has evidences of what it used to be like during its past cocolife, after all San Pablo used to the center of coconut production, thus the invention of Buko Pie.
The mild breeze coming from Mt. Makiling and the pine trees surrounding the hacienda make this place a haven for people looking for time to laze around and enjoy nature or with a book.
Casa San Pablo also houses unique collections from the original owners up to the children who now manages the place.
I love the eclectic mix of artworks, vintage collections and local products from Laguna.
For a more productive stay, you can ask the staff or book some pre-arranged farm-activities inside Casa San Pablo. Activities such as San Pablo culinary (like how to make Kulawo), paper mache and pottery.
Dining here takes your palate and food knowledge to a different level. You get to learn about how Laguna boasts about their manner of eating, with "Pantapik." These are side dishes that usually comes when you eat your viands.
This stand-alone casita is our most romantic suite. A large oil painting of Casa San Pablo’s pavilion by Malyn Banayog welcomes guests to the room. Two sets of sliding glass doors open to a great view of our palm garden. The spacious room has a large bed, a small day bed, as well as a cozy sitting area. Nude charcoal drawings by members of the Saturday Group adorn one wall.
I'm also loving their retro-country inspired interiors.
Here are some "taka" paper-mache horses being sold at their store.
Above the cafe is a communal room best for a big group.
With 18 different and uniquely designed rooms, you'll just fit right at home and feel like in a hacienda relaxing and enjoying meals cooked the way your mom and grandparents would.
