Balay Indang - 20
" Balay Indang is a garden refuge comfortably located in Indang, Cavite. The wide, expansive gardens are filled with some of the finest flowering plants, trees and cacti making them some of the most relaxing and beautiful settings you could ever imagine. Our sanctuary boast of a variety of amenities including a large, well-maintained swimming pool, a luxurious and airy pool-side pavilion with billiards, mahjong and a collection of classic board games, a fishing pond with Red Kingfish Tilapia where you and your family can enjoy hours of fishing, and a well-stocked kitchen and restaurant specializing in local and foreign home-cooked meals.

Balay Indang is a simple bed and breakfast place. It is perfect for corporate events, retreat, or if you want to simply escape from the busy city life. You can eat for P600/head and they serve simple home-cooked food (nothing to rave about). You can stay overnight complete with meals for P1,850/ head and you add P1,000/room if you prefer the air-conditioned room.

We want to be thorough in helping my brother in selecting the best reception place for their wedding so we had to check this out. I was only able to took pictures of the main Balay Indang house since we arrived late at night. Overall, it has a nice ambiance, a friendly staff and a relaxing eclectic atmosphere. This is a good place to escape with the family or go for a team building session.

The Food

Balay Indang - 5

The meal starts with a simple salad with ranch dressing similar to Sonya's garden in Tagaytay. The meal comes with ordinary powdered ice tea and brewed coffee. Everything is home cooked so don't expect a gourmet dining experience.

I've heard a lot about this place and I've always wondered what it looks like. Your pictures are perfect. What are the rates like though? And what else is there to do there?

hi anton! i just want to ask if there are divisions in one room. aside from my hubby and me, i will be bringing my mom and dad and my father-in-law with us. so it's kinda awkward if there are no divisions per bed.

Hi Anton,

Nice post, would like to give directions also going to Balay Indang...

From Edsa take D. Macapagal Highway and exit in Coastal Road
From Aguinaldo Highway you'll pass Bacoor, Imus and Dasmarinas
Turn right to Pala-pala before Robinson's Place Dasmarinas
Drive along Governor's Drive then reaching Trece Martires City turn left going to Indang (landmark is 7-11)
Drive along going to Indang town proper
From Indang town proper turn left, Balay Indang wooden gate would be 1-2kms away by then.

Travel time should take you 1.5 hours only...

Hi! My friends and I are planning an outing this summer, and we're choosing between this place and Casa San Pablo in Laguna. I see that you've been to both places already. Which of the two would you personally recommend?

Now, it is 2,200 per person. The food was just okay but the place is definitely peaceful and good if you want quiet time with your loved ones. I would suggest the rooms without aircon so you can enjoy the night breeze. It is a wonderful experience.

Thanks Anton!

nice, thanks for all the info but where is ginger garden or ginger plant........I'm interesting the ginger plant.

Thanks anton!

i am planning a weekend trip and it's a toss between balai indang or Coco Grove Resort in Laiya Batangas. which would you pick?

i was there yesterday. really it's an interesting place.:) the concept of the place is really unique.

um, parang rip off to ng sonya's garden...

hi anton, nice pics there. anyway, any available email address of this place? i want to know the amenities. accommodation and rates. please help. thanks
