Dine At The Base Of A Waterfall At This Philippines Resort

One waterfall worth chasing.

There are plenty of places offering unique dining experiences around the world but, at the Labassin Waterfall Restaurant, guests can bask in the beauty of the Filipino jungle while soaking their feet in the cool, clear water.

Located at the bottom of a very active waterfall at theVilla Escudero Resort, guests indulge in incredible local eats.

The menu is mostly seafood, naturally, as well as a range of traditional Fillipino eats, all dished up on Banana leaves. It’s a more laid-back dining experience – after all, there’s a “no shoes” policy and chances are you’re going to get soaked.

The man-made waterfall isn’t just pretty jungle décor, it provides hydroelectric power to a nearby coconut plantation and acts as a natural air conditioner, giving diners a well-deserved break from the humid tropical climate.

If you’re in the area, be sure to take advantage of the stunning hiking trails and primo bird-watching opportunities.

You can book a full-day waterfall experience with lunch included at neighbouring Villa Escudero Resort for $130.
