Courtyard

A vine-festooned trellis shades a stone walkway that leads to an old well, part of the ruins of an 18th century Capuchin chapel. In the coolness of an early morning, when the dew is just lifting from the garden, breakfast with the birds and indulge in hearty Filipino or Spanish fare. At dusk, when the trees are glittering with fairy lights, the courtyard makes a romantic setting for wedding receptions or cocktails for two. The garden is unique as it is a haven for only indigenous Philippine flora that include the fragile, sweetly-scented sampaguita, dama de noche and champaca blossoms and other plants with uniquely Filipino names like manaog ka irog (descend my beloved) , kahapon ngayon at bukas (yesterday, today, and tomorrow). Seating capacity: 400
