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. As years go by we tend to be choosy with our summer getaway place and ask ourselves questions like where can we plunge our stress away? 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.
Only two hours away from the hustles and bustles of the country’s capital, a sliding roughed-wood gate at Brgy. Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas awaits us people whose minds are mostly drowned by the everyday toxicities of sky-high walls and impassable traffic congestions. Walking inside opens a sloped terrain of a budding paradise of fruit-bearing trees, flowers and gardens that hide a budding paradise of infinity pools and leisure activities for the weary. The place’s feels is amplified by greens and peace that it is named Serenewoods Farm and Resort.[gallery link="file" ids="50864,50860,50859,50865,50866,50867"]

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.
