I recently visited a vacation house named Villa Elisha in Antipolo. I actually fell in love with the place and I thought that it is a great place to get married. In this post, I will give you three reason why you should choose it as your wedding venue.
1. They can provide you a perfect rustic wedding.
Although I went the for an overnight staycation, I roamed around the place and found some wedding setups around.
They can provide you with an intimate wedding setup. This wedding setup can cater 20 guests. Imagine getting married with just your immediate family members and closest friends around. I bet it will really be good seeing how genuinely happy the guests are.
At the back of Villa Elisha, I also saw another wedding setup. I think this one can cater around 30 guests. What I love about this venue is that you are surrounded by nature.
In addition, you also have an exclusive use of the venue. It is best if the ceremony and the reception is at the same place. No one would have a hard time finding the next venue. It saves time and gas!
2. They have a cozy accommodation for the guests.
Villa Elisha can cater up to 15 guests. Besides that, there are also other cottages available near the area. All your family members and entourage will definitely have a great place to stay. People can book Villa Elisha on AirBnb.
It has three bedrooms but I love the sleeping area on the living room. It’s so nice to wake up and see the lush forest view on your window with the sound of chirping birds.
Guests can also access other amenities like the swimming pool, hanging bridge, fishing lagoon, and trails for biking. There are also chapel, picnic areas, and children’s playground in the area.
3. There are many fun activities to do at Villa Elisha.
To be honest, Globe signal is not good inside the Villa. If you want to be experience an unplugged wedding, this is the place to go! There’s no WiFi in the forest but you’ll find a better connection. I think it’s nice when the guests are living in the moment instead of busy posting photos on social media.
Feed the Farm Animals
The animals around the Villa roams freely. If you want to feed them, you just have to buy animal food from the staff. I actually enjoyed this experience because not all farms offer this kind of activity. In addition, you may also visit their farm and do some fruit picking!
Ride an ATV
They have a couple of ATV’s for rent. Wouldn’t it be nice to enter the wedding area using an ATV? LOL. I know it’s crazy but I’m just giving you an idea. Haha!
Make a Bonfire
Whether it’s the a night before the wedding or your wedding night, I think it’s great to experience bonfire with your closest friends and family members.
They have an in-house restaurant where you can order samgyupsal. For as low as 399 pesos, guests can eat unlimited beef, pork, and chicken.
If you don’t feel like going to the restaurant, you may also have it on your accommodation. They will pack the side dishes and the meat for you.
Sing at the Videoke
What’s a party without singing and dancing? Guests can rent the videoke at the Villa. You can sing your heart out because no one can hear you when you’re in the middle of the forest.
Do some Obstacle Courses
They actually offer a team building package. You may inquire about it on their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/villaelisha
