Jessy & Luis’s wedding at The Farm at San Benito

Through the years, we’ve seen how Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano have had their share of heartbreaks after their break-ups with their fellow celebrity exes. So seeing the two tying the knot to live happily ever after is giving fans all the feels. 

If you’ve been wondering where their recently announced secret wedding in February was held, they’ve just revealed that it was in the Filipino-themed resort The Farm at San Benito in Batangas.

Located in Lipa City, Batangas, the resort is known for their unique wooden suites and villas showcasing the intricacies of local architecture, blended modern features. For instance, the resort’s Sulu Terraces offer air-conditioned, rice barn-style modern treehouses with wood-beamed ceilings and thatched roofs.

This type of accommodation is the resort’s most affordable, starting at P14,640 per night (~USD301 including taxes, good for two), with a healthy vegan breakfast.

And while the houses might seem small, they actually have plenty of amenities. Each house has a shower area and free WiFi, for example, and underneath the houses lie outdoor lounge areas, where you can dine while surrounded by nature. There are seating areas on the houses’ upper floor as well.
