BALAY NI TATAY FARM RESORT: A BUDGET ROAD TRIP in Babatngon Leyte

BALAY NI TATAY FARM RESORT

I was scheduled to renew my PRC license in Tacloban City. Being the “gala” myself, I thought of going a day before and bringing my siblings and friends with me since we’ve never been anywhere this past month. So why not hit the road and drive?

Where? BALAY NI TATAY FARM RESORT in Villa Magsaysay, Babatngon Leyte.

We left Santa Margarita Samar – Sunday around 6 AM in the morning. And then arrived in Tacloban City at 11:00 AM the same day. We basically roam around the city that afternoon.

The idea was to go on a budget road trip. We looked for a nice place where the entrance fee is affordable. We drove to Batbangon Leyte to visit Balay ni Tatay Farm resort. It has a nature view, and fresh air and is near the metro.

BALAY NI TATAY FARM RESORT : How to get there?

For commuters: Take a jeep bound for Babatngon at Robinsons north terminal all the way to Pagsulhugon. Stop on the 2nd corner ( left side) after the Department of Agriculture office. Then ask a habal habal to take you to Balay ni tatay Farm.

For private vehicles: The best option is to use the WAZE app or Google Maps and pin “Balay ni Tatay Farm Resort”. You can also take Babatngon road if you are in Tacloban. Then after the Department of Agriculture office, make a LEFT TURN on the SECOND CORNER where you will see Balay ni Tatay small Signage. Asking locals is also an option while you’re on your way because the direction is a bit sketchy. It’s a 30mins drive from Tacloban City if there’s no traffic.

If you’re from Samar after the San Juanico bride take the right road going to Batbangon Leyte instead of going left to Tacloban City proper.

ARRIVING AT BALAY NI TATAY FARM RESORT

What amazed me was the greenery you can see around the resort. It was so relaxing to just feel and smell the fresh air. The resort was so wide. It can be rented for team buildings, weddings, birthdays, and other celebrations that needed a wider venue. It’s also a great place for prenups or other nature-themed photoshoots. They are open 11 am – 7 pm every day.

They also have ponds that have coy fishes and swimming pool.

Prayer Mountain

This is a very nice view from the top of a small hill. A Bali-inspired place that has a heart, nest, star, cross, and a door. It has a separate entrance fee from that of the resort.

We really did enjoy this Bali-inspired hill. It was a bit cloudy when we visit but it’s ok. The view is still amazing. We can see the panorama scenery view around the resort. It would be a challenge though I think if it’s sunny because there’s no tree cover.

Look how wide it is on the top of the hill.

I would recommend this as a side trip if you’ll go to Tacloban City. Such a nice place.
