Last-minute Holy Week plans? We’ve got you, fam!

But hurry because other procrastinators might beat you to these!
The Wild West
Want something thematic for a chill night with your friends or family? Check out this super cool condominium in Circulo Verde, Quezon City. On top of the very cool decorations and prison-themed bedroom, it also comes with a lot of activities like a poker table, flatscreen TVs with Netflix, playing cards, chess, telescope, darts, and even a pool table. Surely, no dull moment inside this 2-bedroom unit! Guests will also have access to the swimming pool and gym.
Designer Loft at Gramercy
Gramercy Residences is one of the tallest buildings in the metro with breathtaking views of the cityscape during the day and at night. For couples looking for a staycation, the loft is perfect as it lends romantic views at night, and a cozy, designer-style atmosphere throughout the day. For a bigger group, the loft is also equipped with two air mattresses and couches that can easily accommodate. For beating the heat or lounging around, there’s also entrance to Gramercy Residences’ beautiful sky pool.
Experience the beauty of nature without having to sacrifice comfort—this is the thrust of a glamping experience. And for a glamping getaway this holy week, check out Domescape, which is the first of its kind in the Philippines. Located in Batangas, the domes for rent can accommodate six guests and are equipped with your usual hotel needs. But step outside and you’ll have access to a serene atmosphere, raw nature, and a natural swimming pool.
For something more private but not too far from scenic spots, check out La Finca Village. Spanish for “The Farm,” La Finca offers a restful and healing experience away from the hustle of the city, but just a few driving minutes from Tagaytay, the Taal, and a tour of Lipa city. The whole villa is pretty spacious and can accommodate a couple looking to disconnect and recharge, with access to a private pool and sports amenities like golf and tennis. Trees and foliage surround the property, adding to the healing atmosphere and giving couples the chance to reconnect with nature.
If you’re looking for something relaxing near Mt. Makiling, you can totally disconnect and relax here at Tierra De Lago. The cottages for rent are littered strategically around the property and guests can access the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and stretches of garden and manicured lawns. There are also activities to enjoy like ping pong, darts, basketball, fishing (where you can eat what you catch), mahjong, videoke, and even spa services.
How cute are these colorful neo-Victorian townhouses in Batangas? These residences are located inside Pontefino Hotels and Residences in Batangas, and are “designed to evoke the vivid colors and unique adornments of a bygone era.” Basila's Residences is one of the many townhouses that are for rent inside the residence area, and can accommodate a maximum of eight guests. Guests can also enjoy the Residences pool for free.
Beat the summer heat and visit Baguio this Holy Week! Since Baguio is home to high-demand properties, especially during the summer, it’s really amazing to find a nice forest cabin still available during one of the busiest days of the year. The entire cabin is huge can accommodate up to 12 guests, equipped with a Jacuzzi, BBQ area with a beautiful garden, and a swing-seat gazebo. It’s also close to many tourist destinations like the Tree Top Adventure, horse riding, archery range, and mini golf.
To take the nature experience further, there’s also the Prado Farms Eco Resort, a bio-dynamic farm and eco-resort in Lubao, Pampanga where people can stay to experience nature, appreciate the beauty of upcycling, and start on their journey to a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Gas tanks are upcycled into an iconic gate, the food is a produce of the bio-dynamic farm in the facility, and the atmosphere generally just invokes learning, reflection, and mindfulness. There’s also a Hacienda Day tour to get a deeper look at what Prado Farms does, a pool for swimming, and space to bike around.
Landscape and seascape meets here at Verde View Villas, located in nearby Puerto Galera. A short drive and roro from Manila, Verde View Villas offes an experience of the sea and the land with its comfortable rooms, beautiful property, and different activities. There’s a pool and Haligi beach for guest access, ATV Mud Kart, Go Kart Racing, paintball, and spa services. You won’t run out of amenities to enjoy and activities to try!
Level up your staycation this Holy Week with a dive package at Haybols Scuba Hub. Haybols whisks you back to your provincial home, where bamboo slats on the floor and tapayans are incorporated into the rooms. And in the middle of your relaxation, check out their scuba diving services, open water, and rescue courses.
