Jardin de Miramar Antipolo – Not only great for Events

Updated: Mar 8

Gushing with exceptional luscious greenery, this garden-like scenery is what makes Jardin de Miramar Antipolo a perfect getaway for the nature-loving guests who want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Metro.



On our last trip to Antipolo, we wanted to find something different. We had seen the views from Cloud 9 and visited Hinulugang Taktak falls and so we were both delighted and eager to discover Jardin de Miramar Antipolo. Not the easiest place to find, but it was well worth the effort.


Love the gardens

Jardin de Miramar Antipolo Review

Antipolo is home to two spots that have endeared the city and the province to its visitors: the once-majestic Hinulugang Taktak, arguably the closest waterfall from anywhere in Metro Manila, and Mystical Cave, said to contain “healing water” because of its ties to local Christian beliefs. These two may be the crown jewels of Antipolo, but the city has a lot more to offer, especially if you are willing to venture outside the city limits and explore its neighbouring towns within the province of Rizal.

Jardin de Miramar Antipolo Review


Now, as I mentioned previously, Jardin de Miramar was not the easiest place to find. From Makati, we had to ride the LRT, a bus, a taxi and a tricycle to get there. And even then the tricycle driver had problems finding the place and actually dropped us at the back entrance.


But, with all this said, I must say that security was helpful and friendly and the staff in the site office were friendly and obliging. The grounds were lovely, peaceful and interesting to explore. It was quite easy to spend an afternoon here.

Jardin de Miramar – driveway

There are so many gems in Metro Manila. How will I ever even scrape the surface? Jardin De Miramar is a three-hectare beautiful garden complex in Antipolo with several venues with different themes. The Jardin brings one away from the noise of the metropolis and into a fresh and genteel country atmosphere. Its different venues are ideal for weddings, receptions, birthday parties, seminars, summer outings and many other events. Among these unique venues is an outdoor space with a re-constructed 50-year-old fishing boat, a replica of Intramuros (where a lot of prenup photoshoots are held), a Bahay Kubo-inspired thatched pavilion, and Casa Santa – a museum of over 3000 Santa Claus figurines and statues.

Jardin de Miramar Parking 2

When we arrived, we were struck by two main things: the vertical rhythm that the coconut trees on site made, and the ever-changing pattern of shadows that their foliage created. We used these cues from nature to give shape to our structure. With the full green surrounding and a picture-perfect location, make sure to load your camera’s batteries into 100% because every corner of the place is a great area to capture. Jardin de Miramar is open to any ocular visits to all travel bloggers. just go directly to the reception area and tell them that you’re a blogger and they will assist you the most.
