The Casa Amara View
From the main highway, we turned left going to Brgy. Imelda. The access road is rough, but our companions who were in their subcompacts easily handled the terrain. A few meters from Casa Amara, an overlooking view of the sea will greet you and we immediately realized then that this will be a different San Juan experience. Casa Amara itself looks like a castle from afar, situated on top of a cliff, right beside the sea. We get mixed feelings of excitement, anticipation, and fear because of how high the house in relation to the sea below.

Batangas is well-known to be one of the favorite summer destinations here in the Philippines. Many tourists and locals plan to go to beaches and resorts here in Batangas.

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.

He saw the potential in the place and created multiple services such as a restaurant, events place, and a resort inside.
Today, Bambu is a family-owned business not only known for its exclusivity, but also for its delicacies such as Tahong Sisig, Hamonado Crispy Pata, Garlic Rose Mary Pork Ribs, and Kalabasa Cheesecake.

Mr. Abraham Arayata is the owner of Bambu Cafe Bar and Events, a young businessman who has a bachelors degree in Business Administration and he also took up a culinary course in order for him to pursue his passion in cooking. Aside from being the owner, he is also the head chef of Bambu. His love for cooking was the influence of his mother and his grandmother.
His passion for cooking was influenced by his mother and grandmother. At first, the place was just a farm and a rest house used by the family. 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. Menu Chef Abe is very fond of Filipino cuisine and a fan of the dishes cooked by his mother and grandmother thus giving him inspiration for the menu plus some twist to entice your palate.
Bambu Cafe Bar and Events also gives opportunities to local talents as they are open for local bands to perform on the restaurant and local entrepreneurs as they have a corner for local products here in Batangas.
