As the rains continue this month, travelers can opt to stay in lodges or retreat houses for a relaxing vacation. Cintai, (pronounced “Chin-tai”), Corrito’s Garden in Balete, Batangas offers an eat-pray-love kind of retreat to persons seeking leisure, whether they be couples, family, friends, companies, or solo-goers. The Balinese-inspired retreat house resort is just an hour’s drive from Manila, best traversed via the Sto. Torribio exit after taking the Alabang-Calamba-Sto.Tomas Expressway-Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (ACTEX-STAR) track.
