  • Gratchi’s Getaway in Tagaytay: Get closer to nature the ‘farm’ way!
  • For some cities, nature can be likened to a delicate painting at a museum that you can appreciate from a distance but can never really touch and feel—so near yet so far. In a city like Tagaytay, however, nature is right at your fingertips. There are many beautiful attractions that not only show you a beautiful natural environment but also immerse you in it. One such place is Gratchi’s Getaway, a farm resort that lets you get closer to nature through various educational activities and fun adventures.

    Gratchi’s Getaway sits on six hectares of land, beautifully landscaped and designed with natural and man-made features that both nature-lovers and adventure-seekers are sure to enjoy.

    For nature lovers, the resort houses an animal farm, where you can meet many adorable farm animals like goats, ostriches, turkeys, Asian palm civets (locally known as alamid), native pigs, and more. You can even purchase feeds so you can bond with the animals!

    Gratchi’s Getaway also has educational farm facilities where you can have a KKK or “Karunungan, Kaalaman, Kalikasan” (Wisdom, Knowledge, Nature) experience of planting and farming. If you’re a nature lover with a creative itch, then you will enjoy drawing or painting at the Artist’s Nook as you draw inspiration from your surroundings.

    Groups and families who want to enjoy some physical games will definitely have a great time at the resort, too! There are many activities and challenges you can do at the resort’s outdoor facilities like going through obstacle courses, surpassing the high-rope challenges (Php 225/person, minimum of five), riding an ATV (Php 450/30 minutes), zip-lining (Php 200/person, minimum of three), and trekking (Php 170/person, minimum of five).

    When you get hungry, they can also serve you delicious farm-fresh Filipino dishes like Crispy Fried Mushroom (Php 210), 3-star Adobo made with chicken, pork, and mushroom (Php 200), and Bulalo (Php 450).

    If one day isn’t enough (which most likely it isn’t!) for you to enjoy the place, Gratchi’s Getaway has nipa hut-inspired accommodations that can cater to small and large groups. Room rates range from Php 2,500 to Php 11,600. Rates may differ for those availing of group and team building packages.
