Photography Lessons & Photowalk. Basic Culinary Lessons. Woodworking. Pyrography. Painting Lessons. Swimming.
These and more were the fun activities that Green Canyon Resort prepared for the press during its media launch last Friday, October 10.
“We developed and built the resort using sustainable and efficient techniques that are environmentally friendly as well,” expressed Green Canyon’s Brand Manager Abel Jose.
Green Canyon Resort is located at Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City, Pampanga – just less than one-and-a-half hour drive from Manila. The 29-hectare green property offers the best seat to watching the interplay of nature and art with the breath-taking Sacobia Valley as natural background. It’s the best weekend getaway to commune with nature and appreciate art with the whole family and friends.
The resort not only serves as relaxing sanctuary, but also as pampering venue for corporate and special events. Guests get to enjoy the exclusive amenities that include an events venue pavilion, a large outdoor resort pool, a family-friendly wave pool, a massage salon, an activities center for children and art workshops. And for those who love adventure, explore the rough terrain using the ATVs (all terrain vehicles), walk through the hanging bridge, pedal your way around the biking trail or hike through the scenic canyons. The adventure makes it more fun with the sumptuous Asian-fusion dishes served by its signature restaurant, Palette.
On top of its green environs, Green Canyon Resort takes pride in its 60-room boutique art hotel. It houses artworks and furniture designed by its resident artist and furniture designer Niccolo Jose. The US-educated artist is known for his pyrography, the art of decorating wood with heated tools.
“Wood is very versatile. For me, it’s about development...,” shared the multi-talented visual artist.
Niccolo boasts that no two rooms in the hotel are alike as each room is carefully designed making it truly a masterpiece. Even the sculptural pieces and art installations found in the resort are nature-inspired masterpieces. And it makes you feel like walking through an art gallery.
“The resort started before I even started my art career, four years ago. I do a lot of thinking in this place.”
This premiere city getaway and recreational destination gives you the symphonic harmony of art and nature.
After all, Green Canyon Resort is not branded as the country’s first-ever eco-art resort for nothing.
