(SPOT.ph) It’s almost ridiculously easy to unwind around these parts, whether you’re in dire need of a quiet weekend away or dying for some retail therapy. But some of Nuvali’s best-kept secrets also might be its most fun, and we’re willing to bet it can bring out the daredevil in almost anyone.
It’s not easy being green, but Camp N makes it fun again. Camp N is an incredible place for bonding with family and friends, team building, or simply challenging yourself. In the age of escape rooms and indoor trampoline parks, it’s nice to know that there are still al fresco spaces—if you will—that don’t necessarily require you to scale mountains. Open to the public from Tuesdays to Sundays, you can “create your own adventure”, ranging from a full Aerial Walk (P200), Long Roller Coaster Zipline (P190), Wall Climbing (P80), and Obstacle Course (P80), among others. There are also Group Rides (P900) and an All-Challenge Package (P850) for you and five friends to really get the heart pumping.
The sheer vastness of the entire Nuvali property is, to put it in human terms, at least mildly insane. But we rest easy knowing they’re really putting all that space to good use without putting the land itself through its paces; this is best demonstrated by Greens & Patches, the sustainable gardening project that’s only a short drive away from Seda. Open for as long as the sun’s out for educational tours, all you’ve got to do to get your explorin’ on is to head over to the Evoliving Office—a short walk from the hotel—to sign a waiver. This wide expanse of crops and little gardens is a gorgeous sight in and of itself, but the friendly experts who work at Greens & Patches are just as much the stars as the actual produce.
It’s a lot to wrap your head around; thankfully, at the end of a long, rigorous day of adventures, Seda will still be standing there with open arms. More than just a home away from home, it’s really all you need in a proper getaway, and again, it’s looking to expand even further. According to general manager Jeffrey Enriquez, early 2020 is the date to keep an eye on—top execs and vacationing families alike have created an ever-unfolding demand that’s proven to be enough to warrant a second pool, a lobby twice its current size, and another edition of Seda’s own signature rooftop bar, cleverly dubbed Straight Up.
Long story short—too late?—Seda Nuvali and its surrounding attractions are, even now, more than worth the drive. If it’s good enough for those head corporate honchos, it’s good enough for us.
