New nature-themed attraction in Manila welcomes corporate events
Rosa Ocampo, Manila, April 20, 2017

Newly opened Haranah Eco Park offers business events an alternative venue combining nature and the outdoors, a rarity in metro Manila.


Jasmine S Tan, managing director of Haranah Tours and whose family owns the eco park, said that just a couple of hours away from Manila, the 16.2-hectare site is in Tanay in Rizal, an unspoiled and beautifully landscaped province that’s still unknown to tourists.


Tan said that while 60 to 70 per cent of Haranah Eco Park is untouched forest, its open grounds can accommodate up to 2,000 pax for teambuilding.


Facilities for corporate meetings, seminars and conferences include a solar-powered multipurpose hall for 200 pax, a conference hall for 40 pax, a view deck and lounge for 15 pax, an outdoor amphitheatre, three geodesic domes for planting herbs and spices, and a traditional Filipino house.


Activities can include outreach with the indigenous Dumagat community, rock balancing, camping, hiking, trekking and Filipino games.


Tan believes that the new attraction will appeal to planners who prefer spacious and natural settings outside the city confines.


Villas and dorms will be added later.
