Trip to Safari & Adventure Park Cebu: I know instead of I should have known! (Part 3)
Have you ever wondered how it feels to witness a sunrise and a sunset while in a serene environment? Worry no more because I have found the exact place suited in this description! And I'm excited to share the Serenity Farm & Resort with you!
I know I just uploaded my Cebu Safari blog last week, and yet, here I am again to offer you a breathtaking place where you can go to escape the buzzing city life of Cebu! (I hope your finances are not negatively affected by my blogs, good thing Hive is here to support our travel goals!)
I am deeply amazed at how Serenity farm embodies its name – serene. Look at those greens! By merely looking at this scene, it really calms my nerves!
By traveling only 30 minutes away from the City, you can wipe your worries away. It's funny how we ended up discovering this majestic place. It might be the same as why you are here reading my blog. My sister, @gerel, and I were actually on a mission of unwinding that day, and there are many places to go to, but we have trouble deciding.
And I actually want to thank Rica (@sassycebuana) because it just so happened that when I was scrolling through my feeds, I saw Rica's blog about “Experience Liel's Kitchen an overlooking restaurant in Cebu, Philppines”, which is a part of Serenity Farm. The image of a green environment caught my attention. I wanted to witness that mountain horizon before my own eyes. And there is something in the choice of furniture and interior designs that makes the place cozy and exquisite. Plus, the place is closer to where we live, and that's when my sister,@gerel and I decided to be like Dora and have an adventure that day.
We booked a Grab to get there since both of us do not know how to drive, only my partner. I have yet to book my driving lesson and get my driver's license soon. So, stay tuned because I'll surely blog about that my driving skills. Anyway, we didn't let the driver wait for us since we had a plan to stay there and appreciate the nature all day.
While we were on our way, I noticed that the road is quite steep and too narrow for two cars to pass each other, especially if they're driving in opposite directions. I'll suggest that if you were to be here, make sure to have a skilled driver for everyone's safety. You also have to note that there are no PUVs that can directly bring you to the Serenity. So, you may be needing your own or rented car to get there. No worries, parking is FREE!
The Serenity Farm & Resort
Upon the resort entrance, I noticed that the resort's theme is Zen, which is related to nature. They incorporated rich wooden designs and indoor vertical gardens that bring an elegant aura to the resort.
A golf cart will be there to transport you to the resort's different areas anytime for FREE. But, you can walk if you want to. As for us, we chose to walk to fully enjoy the view.
Serenity Farm & Resort caters to your needs for an event place. It could also serve as a bonding place for barkadas out there! They offer three (3) event house resorts with pools at different prices. For more information, you can visit [their Facebook page. They also have an ongoing promotion at this date. They offer a 10% discount on the whole house rent and karaoke use on weekdays, excluding holidays from July 18 – September 18, 2021. This is a great timing for those who want a quick escape from stressful zoom meetings! So go and have fun with your family or barkadas!
Aside from offering event houses, they also have four (4) restaurants within the property’s vicinity that you can dine in! I'll be providing a sneak peek of their menus. But, stay tuned as I will be uploading my next blogs regarding each of the restaurants!
