Secret Garden: Sonya's Garden, Tagaytay

“How to get there: From South Superhighway exit Santa Rosa and turn right towards Tagaytay. Upon reaching main Aguinaldo highway, turn right toward Nasugbu, Batangas. Go past Tagaytay Rotonda and proceed for 10km. After Splendido Golf course and Sunrise Hill make a right turn on the Buck Estate. Drive for 2km and watch out for Sonya’s on the left side. Use the first gate and drive towards the end of the driveway and make a right towards parking lot”. –

We’re able to reach the secret garden through this useful instruction guide. Sonya's Garden, which is situated at Barangay Buck Estate, Alfonso, Cavite, is a secret garden that offers an eat-all-you can, fresh and organic cuisine that will satisfy your cravings.
