2. Moon Garden


The charming Belgian and Filipino owners of Moon Garden welcomed me before with such warmth and good stories, making it harder for me to forget about this hidden getaway tucked in the quiet area of Tagaytay. It’s a romantic, quiet resort that’s done in a very artistic way with the paintings, sculptures and of course, their garden.
