I have a question for people over 25 years old: when did you start noticing the change in your travel preference? I’ve been thinking about travel a lot lately, but I can’t muster the willpower to act on it. There are days when I feel like going out but at the same time refusing to move a muscle. It could be that I’m transitioning into another travel style or I’m just becoming lazier. (And it’s funny that I call myself a travel enthusiast, eh?)
Some destinations require a certain amount of energy while others demand absolutely nothing. At this point in my life, I find myself on many occasions choosing staycations over backpacking trips. If you’re experiencing the same things, then read on.
February 4, 2019 — With my good friend visiting the Philippines, the spa seemed to be the right venue for catching up. It was a no-brainer to go to Luljetta’s Place in Antipolo where the cool mountain breeze and an astonishing landscape views welcome you.
On its soft opening, we learned that Luljetta’s Place has recently opened another wing in their resort premises — called Mykonos at Luljettas — that will surely give people a luxurious take on rest.
The Mykonos at Luljettas Place is a splendid vacation property heavily influenced by Greek architecture. Nestled on a quiet hillside in Antipolo, the beautiful holiday villa echoes the harmony of a sleek structure and the raw beauty of nature.
Just imagine having this entire place for a day, enjoying a gorgeous view of the forest from a considerable height while drinking a summer smoothie. Forget the world and readjust your focus. Whether you’re in the mood to go swimming in the pool or you just feel like flipping some pages of your favorite book under the sun, you can find inspiration in every corner of this villa!
The private villa has 3 executive rooms that can each fit 4 persons. Every room has its own air conditioning, two king-sized beds, a flat TV, a hot-and-cold shower, towels, cabinets, mini fridge, and a veranda. If you’re looking for a venue to celebrate special occasions, Mykonos at Luljettas is perfect for intimate gatherings such as birthdays and reunions.
The moment I walked into the room, the white clear-lined interior captivated me. The minimalist yet smart play on colors made a subtle yet bold statement. Plus, the distinct fragrance that emanates throughout the room creates a calm and uplifting mood. You just know you’re in a heavenly place!
My stay at Luljetta’s Place wouldn’t have been complete without spending a day at their hanging garden and spa, of course. I remember my friend, Gab of Out of Town blog, brought me here about this time last year, too. We had a superb experience at the garden and the spa which you can know more here.
I wasn’t really able to spend some time in the movie lounge before. So now I decided that I’ll use the chance to get to know the other facilities, like this one, better. Obviously, unlike the fish spa and the infinity pool, this part of Luljetta’s Place seem to be overlooked. There was no other person who took interest in this part of the gardens.
The movie lounge is not just a place for a movie marathon. It also allows guests to read books, play billiards, have a game of chess or try out the musical instruments. Just by observing this room, one would notice how each furniture pieces and design elements were handpicked to represent the rich culture of the Philippines. The woven garment with an intricate pattern from Zamboanga, for instance, is evidence of the owner’s passion for local arts and handicrafts.
As the world gets fast-paced, learn to slow down and embrace your own pace, your own approach to living each day to the full. I highly recommend going to this beautiful hillside resort to enjoy your personal time.
