Cintai Corito's Garden: Bali in Batangas.

I brought my friends for a day trip to Cintai Corito's Garden, a Bali-inspired garden situated in Batangas. It was supposed to be my birthday treat but because of our busy work schedules, it got postponed two months later. By then, T and I got engaged so it became more of our mini engagement lunch instead. I chose this place because T and I really enjoyed our trip to Bali (read about the highlights of my Bali Birthday Trip).

Cintai Corito's Garden used to be a private home belonging to a family whose matriarch Corito was diagnosed with a terminal disease. To help her recuperate, the family would bring Corito to the gardens but a few years later, she passed away. The family converted the property into this beautiful garden resort to honor her memory. Cintai means 'love' in Indonesian so Cintai Corito's means for love for Corito.

How To Get There

From Manila, take SLEX all the way to Star Toll Expressway.  On Star Toll Expressway, take the fourth exit Sto. Toribio Balete and turn right after the toll booth. Go straight for around 4km until you see the gates of Cintai Corito's Garden on your left. 

Day Tours

The day tour rate is PhP1,850 per person which includes lunch, snacks, and access to all facilities such as pictorial sites, swimming pools, playground, and shower rooms from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Like I mentioned, T and I were with my closest friends Di, Ara, Gene, and Gene's husband Gilbert. As soon as we arrived, a lady at the entrance instructed us to go to a pavilion for our welcome drinks.  

Everyone was hungry so we first had lunch at Abadi Restaurant. The day tour comes with a set menu consisting of soup, main course, and dessert with the option to upgrade to a buffet.

There are four swimming pools in Cintai Corito's Garden and swimming was included in the package I got but none of us felt like doing so that day. It was too cold! So we just explored the grounds and took photos. Keep your eyes peeled for the free-roaming animals around the gardens such as  donkeys, ponies, chickens, geese, and peacocks.

After we're done with our photo taking, we went to a pavilion overlooking the forest to have afternoon snacks and coffee.

Prenup Shoots and Weddings

You can also have your prenup in Cintai Corito's Garden but this will be subject to different rates than the ones I mentioned above. Cintai Corito's Garden also has two pavilions which can accommodate weddings. Below is their biggest ballroom called Pavilion Tresna with a maximum capacity of 200 guests.


There are 18 villas in Cintai Corito's Garden grouped into Terrace Villas, Garden Villas, and Executive Villas. The room rates range from P11,500 to P27,500 per night but you can get discounted rates up to 50% off below.
