For those of you looking for a quick getaway that’s only 3 hours away from the city. 

Let’s head out of the city and over to Calatagan, Batangas where Ybonita Farms and Villa is located.

It’s a place where you can unplug, unwind, and re-connect with people you care about. 

Let’s take a drive down south and immerse yourself in the diverse scenery you can only find in Calatagan.

Ybonita Farms is a 2.9-hectare farmland with an excellent view of the Calatagan sunset.

Think towering trees, green pastures, farm animals, hammocks, day beds, and an excellent host. 



Everything in this family-run villa by the Caunan family is well thought of- from the comfortable beds, interior design, and the way everything is set up.



Every little detail is taken note of, from how there are walkie talkies at the villa to connect with the staff, to how they prepare your meal.  It’s hard not to fall in love with the place.

The Yvatan Villa can easily accommodate 12 pax and once booked, it comes with a complimentary breakfast. 



Aside from taking the time to appreciate nature here are some activities that you can do with your friends and family.





Ybonita Farms and Villa is roughly 5 minutes away from the beach. You can easily arrange a tour at the nearby sandbar.




Cold crystal clear waters, white sand, and the warm sun set you up for a great afternoon.



Your lunch is prepared for you, as you dine in their boats. They serve you an assortment of Filipino favorites comprising of grilled meat, seafood, Ensalada, and of course, adobo.


One of the best things about being outside of the city is being to experience. Have your dinner arranged in the garden and you’ll be surprised at the feast that awaits you.

The twinkle lights, classy set up, and welcoming staff are enough to get you excited for your evening meal.

Sizzling Bulalo and homemade Chicharon

They have an array of Filipino classic dishes, prepared by Chef Monique Caunan. We recommend their Kare Kare, Crispy Pata, Sizzling Bulalo and their homemade Chicharon that is paired with their homemade Sinamak Vinegar.

Each of the dishes were well executed and stay true to authentic Filipino flavors.



End your night by sitting under the stars. This tradition of sitting around the fire as a sort of bonding has been around for ages. It’s a place of commune where you sit in a circle talk, eat, and stay close to the fire for warmth.

You can ask the staff to prepare a bonfire for you after dinner, and they’ll even bring out some marshmallows, chocolates, and sticks so that you can prepare smores.
