An hour away from Manila in Calamba, Laguna, a different vacation awaits at Doña Jovita Garden Resort – Nature’s hot spring at the foot of Mt. Makiling.

Enjoy nature’s best in two different settings – a Garden Getaway and a Mediterranean Escape.


“We stayed overnight at Dona Jovita Garden Resort and I was transported to a hacienda. The place is really a garden with lots of trees and plants. I just wish there were more trees and plants also by the roadside to minimize the noise from the highway. Our room was very clean and spacious and smelled really good. The pool was also very clean. Would appreciate more lights for night swimming. Hospitality was excellent from the guards to the groundskeeper and the waiters, everyone was smiling and greeting us. Food was delicious, choices were just enough not to overwhelm you and everything was delectable from breakfast, lunch, merienda and dinner. I liked that it was not crowded and gave me the space I needed to relax and unwind and have fun with friends. They offer a lot of activities also such as hiking, trekking, horseback riding, rappelling, zipline, karaoke, mahjong, and a lot more. Good for team building activities. They also have several function rooms. I plan to bring my office staff here for team building sometime soon. Would highly recommend this place. I have been to other resorts in this area, this one is the best.”

“Awesome place to stay. Huge room for the family of 4 at Mediterranean area, specifically Pamplona room. Nice and neat beddings, amoy malinis. Cleanliness at its best. You will feel closer to nature with tall trees and some fruit bearing trees surrounding the resort. We enjoyed dipping at warm water of the pool, wherein you can smell the relaxing scent of Ilang ilang tree near the pool. Food is delicious and affordable. Highly recommended.”
