After graduation, he thought of investing for the betterment of the place and eventually developed it into a restaurant. He is also fond of organic farming, the herbs that they are using for their dishes are found within their backyard. As for the meat and seafood ingredients, they purposely restrict the number of inventory to guarantee the quality of every dish. Customers may call ahead of time to secure a specific meal.

Where can we find serenity while relaxing and indulging ourselves in nature? Or where can we find a place to chill or relax and have fun with the family? Luckily, we find all of these in a semi-private resort in Brgy Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas named Serenewoods Farm and Resort.

About the Owner:
Serenewoods Farm and Resort is owned and managed by Mr. Lino Buenafe, a business-minded father of two who lives in Balete, Batangas City. Mr. Lino is a car enthusiast that’s why his first venture is a Car Accessory Business and through those businesses, he is able to provide the needs for his family and acquire a property in Brgy Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas.
He later decided to convert this property into a resort and a vacation place for his family use but later on, friends started asking if they can rent it to have their vacation or events held in the resort. Upon establishing the business, problems occur because it is inevitable, Mr. Lino has been stressed when it comes to the allocation of budget, to the development of the resort and its design, and he noted that it is way harder to develop a property on a slope land but he keeps on bringing bright ideas to maximize the slope area and added more features to the resorts. He realized that education and patience are what an individual needs to be successful in life.
