My sister had her wedding in Cintai Corito’s Garden. We stayed there overnight. 

It was a beautiful wedding. And it was memorable to stay with the whole family in Cintai (pronounced chintai). It’s a Bali-inspired resort located in Batangas, Philippines. It takes only two hours by car from Manila.

Cintai is the Indonesian word for love. The resort is built in memory of a woman who died of terminal illness. Her family built this in memory of her.

There were many wooden structures like this in the resort. Indonesian-inspired.

When we were there in January 2012, there were still ongoing construction in some areas. We stayed in a big villa, amidst rolling hills, coconut trees and pools of blue water.
