Whenever you daydream about escaping the city, what immediately comes to mind is gearing up for a lengthy road trip somewhere to the North or down South. Sometimes, it gets tiresome just thinking about the long drive ahead when all you want to do is unwind. Well, what if we told you that your next weekend go-to is just 30 minutes away?

Nestled in the hilly terrain of Antipolo, LeBlanc Hotel and Resort is the prime spot to relax and laze around after a busy week.

With a pool, an indoor basketball court, a billiard table, and seven spacious bedrooms, the resort has been a popular event venue since 2012.

The rooms are cozy and inviting—with furniture and accessories in calming neutral tones. It's easy to see hints of Scandinavian influences, as seen in the chosen pieces with clean lines.

They also opened a new building in September to accommodate more guests looking for a simple escape from the city. The white and neutral-toned furnishings of your room coupled with the natural light peeking through the curtains is enough to get you started on your de-stress session.

You can also chill poolside under the canopy of their lounge chairs. Spend the afternoon getting a tan, reading a book, or taking photos that are sure to get you those likes!

While Antipolo definitely has a lot of food options to check out, there's no need to head far to grab a bite. Le Blanc's restaurant and bar, The Bistro, has superb must-tries, whether it's a hot serving of bulalo or a plate of creamy pasta.

Aside from their spacious function rooms, they have a SkyTent that can accommodate up to 180 people and its glass windows allow a wonderful view of the Metro's skyline. The brand-new SkyGarden located right next to the SkyTent is also a great vantage point for a beautiful sunset by the hills.

Rates start at P4,000++. LeBlanc Hotel and Resort is at 3 Taktak Road, Antipolo City, Rizal. For more information, visit LeBlanc Hotel website or log on to LeBlanc Hotel Facebook page.
