Black Saturday at Balay Indang

It has become a tradition between my friends and I to meet on Holy Thursday for Visita Iglesia. Or if most of us are unavailable, we move it some other time like in this case, to Black Saturday. Prior to this, I got a text from my friend asking me if I wanted to go to Balay Indang. I've been to this serene place last year and I thoroughly enjoyed the brief time I spent there so I said, Yes!

Read my previous post on Balay Indang here.

Our initial plan was to spend the night here but later on decided to just go for a day trip since it's just an hour travel from home. Reservation is required as the food are prepared depending on the number of guests and day trippers they are expecting to arrive.

After checking my name on the list, the guard on duty instructed us to proceed to the main house which also serves as their reception area.

The living room is adorned with beautiful and extraordinary treasures bought by the owners from their travels abroad.

You have the option to dine by the lanai or in the (air-conditioned) main dining area.

The hot weather seems unbearable so we requested the food to be served inside the house. Day trip in Balai Indang costs Php600 per person which includes free use of their facilities except the swimming pool and sit down buffet lunch.

On the table

Fresh Dalandan Juice


Salmon Pasta


Shrimp Skewers

Grilled Chicken

Tuna Wasabi

Seafood Omelet

Everything were exceptionally delicious and well-presented! I especially like the slight kick of the Wasabi on every bite of Tuna which instantly became my favorite dish.

As with most sit-down buffets I've been, dessert is simple and ordinary.

Sweetened Banana

To burn off the calorie intake, I suggested for us to walk and explore the rest of the resort. We were surprised and delighted to see that there's a Station of the Cross on the far side of this vast property. Good thing my friend downloaded the Way of the Cross on his phone so we were able to complete all fourteen stations.

Balay Indang is like a lovely garden inside a farm with fruit bearing trees, beautiful flowers and lush greeneries. There's something about this place that will relax and calm your mind and body.

Our happy tummies and the breezy afternoon made all four of us sleepy and just wanted to lie on the ground to take a nap. Lucky for us we found this three-story tree house with a rocking chair and a sofa bed! A few minutes after we stepped in and we're off to la la la land.

For guests staying overnight, use of the swimming pool is free of charge. But for day trippers like us, there's a corresponding fee of Php100 per person and extra Php50 if you forgot to bring a towel.

I have yet to experience spending the night in one of Balay Indang's cozy rooms and I am definitely looking forward to trying out their other delicious dishes. Hope to be able to squeeze in another trip here before the summer ends.

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." -Micah 6:8
