Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away!

This seemed to be the little boy’s chant as he felt every drop of the refreshing rain on his skin. For tropical countries like the Philippines, June marks the end of the summer season and paves the way for the rainy days.

Little boy-next-door playing in the rain

I’m sure a lot of people look forward to bidding the intense-37 degree-Celsius heat goodbye, but of course don’t want a catastrophic typhoon like Ondoy. The rainy season has its own perks and downfalls, but like the little boy, may we always take time to enjoy the simple pleasures of rainy days.

Nueva Viscaya: The Adventurer’s Paradise (Featuring Prianas Farm and Resort)

This northern jewel reminded us that an idea of paradise doesn't always include beaches and soft sands. It was the cradle of lush mountains, rolling hills, winding rivers and streams that appealed to the adventuresome like us. It was truly a relaxing experience to be up close with nature and its marvels.

Being a frequenter of the North (including Viscaya), I came to saw this province in a different light. Thanks to Prianas Farm and Resort – a wellness paradise in Masoc, Bayombong, Nueva Viscaya. Prianas Farm is an ideal place to relax, unwind and de-stress with the beauty of nature at its best. It offers a great Biscayan experience! :)

Welcome to Prianas Farm!

Such a homey accommodation. Look out of the window and feel at ease.

You may choose to dine inside...

...but dining outside is even more inviting.

Trailing and plunging into the fresh water spring is a most-loved experience.

The infinity pool offers a natural running fresh-spring water bath.

There's even a dip pool for kids.

Sun bathing or nature bumming?

Health and wellness is really a must, so go for long morning walks on the therapeutic path.

  • Infinity pool
