Our Trip to Balay Indang
We were so lucky we found a vacant room at Balay Indang in Cavite (20 minutes from Tagaytay) for Holy Thursday. I didn’t want to spend the Holy Week at home because of the weather plus I badly need a break from everything. I found Balay Indang from Anton’s blog, called them up and to my surprise, they still have one room left! We paid per head (Sandy was free) for 5 meals – breakfast, lunch, dinner, 2 snacks. They have a pool, billiards table, karaoke and plenty of day beds, hammocks and meditation areas.
I think they were trying to replicate Sonya’s bed and breakfast with their gardens, wedding amenities, etc. Although the services are almost the same, Balay Indang is bigger and have more rooms, around 3-4 rooms per house. One thing they sure have in common are the bugs because of the plants, flowers surrounding the place.
Check out our food here and some of our photos below.
Swimming after lunch. They were fully booked so I asked Sandy if she wanted to swim, knowing we might not have a chance to have the pool to ourselves later.
The resting area near the pool. Love this nook.
Took a nap after swimming. It was a very relaxing afternoon for me and I was so thankful we managed to snag a room even if it’s the peak season and we booked late.
More resting areas.
Drawing in one of the tables in the huge garden. The pool was filled this time so I was right to take an early swim before it gets too crowded.
Sandy loved the place! She kept saying how nice Tagaytay was and how fun that there were so many places to explore. As you already know, she’s our little critic when it comes to hotel accommodations. And although Balay Indang is far from a hotel, I have no doubt she’d love to go back with her baby sister next time.
