This Garden Resort in Cavite Is a Rustic Weekend Escape

It's just two hours away from Manila.

(SPOT.ph) With all the traffic congestion and pollution that plague Metro Manila on a daily basis, an easy escape to a land far, far away is always tempting. A quaint resort in Maragondon, Cavite, however, proves that you don’t have to ride a plane or file a week-long vacation leave to have some downtime. Riverfront Garden Resort is just a bus ride away from the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange, and it’s a great option for a quick weekend getaway.

Riverfront Garden Resort may have been around since 2016, but it’s been creeping up on our feeds these days, probably because of all the Instagram-worthy spots on every corner. It’s located right on Maragondon River, amid rows of trees, making it seem like you’re a lot more than two hours away from the Metro.
