Green Canyon Eco Art Resort
Reviewed May 10, 2016

I really enjoyed this hotel. If you need a little nature escape in luxury, this is your place.
It is quite expensive, but rooms are beautiful and comfy.
The lobby is like a furniture art museum.
I came for a 2-day conference and enjoyed the food.
I really enjoyed the sunset hike.
Staff is kind and helpful.

CONs
-The wave pool wasn't working when I stayed there in March 2016.
-Weekends may have special events, such as weddings, that may detract from the quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

Stayed: March 2016

I am very unhappy with your services. See reasons below:
1. The moment we drove into the compound we were welcomed by a hovering guard that would not even help us with our heavy luggage. He just kept staring at us and saying we cannot check in yet so why don't we just leave our bag in the car. I asked him if we can leave the bag in the front desk and he said we can, we opted to leave it in the car because he was hovering and it made all of us(4 women) uncomfortable.

2. Once inside the lobby, we were then ignored by the front desk receptionist who was counting money. Upon checking in, these said ladies were not helpful at all.

3. Room was nice but why do you provide ONLY 2 water bottles for a room of 4? Not only that but when we asked for service water you could not be bothered to send us some at all? It had additional charge which I don't understand since your rates are premium. And apparently only your restaurants which is a few meters away is the only place to get water.

4. Palette Restaurant has the worst service, we waited 1 hour for our dinner to be served, no apologies and it was even served cold. Even when waiting for the bill we had to wait another 30 min. What kind of place is this? I don't see any manager around to escalate this problem. The least they can do is issue an apology. Admittedly they said that they forgot our order.

Customer experience is one of the reasons that you go back to a resort or restaurant. They score 0/5 for me. The only nice thing about this place was the room. It's also not as big as it's advertised, there's bikes but most of them are worn out and frankly,the distances are very near for you to even need a bike. Where's the trail? I did not see any. Very underwhelming place. Definitely won't be back.

A respite from the hustle and bustle of workload. If you are looking for a near yet relaxing nature and art inspired place to stay, Green Canyon is highly recommended. Very relaxing, youll wake up to the sound of chirping birds. Food is good though quite pricey. Clean pool and friendly staff.
And to add fun, Deca wakeboard park is just a few minutes away.

The moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the friendly staff. They were very accommodating. Even the guards were helpful. Since it was really hot and humid during day time they would lend umbrellas to the guests who wanted to go to the restaurant and pool area. The art work displayed in the lobby was very impressive! I loved the idea that all the wood from the trees in the property was put to good use. At that time there was a wedding going on late in the afternoon and the place was fantastic as a wedding venue. We were allowed to use the swimming pool till late at night since all the guests seemed to be attending the wedding. Overall it was a very nice experience.

I want to live in a world designed by Niccolo Jose - a world where all furniture is magically transformed to art, where art expresses different emotions, and where chairs are anything but ordinary. I suppose my wish got granted when our teambuilding for this year was held at the family resort of the young and talented woodbender and visual artist.

Located in a 29-hectare property that was once devastated by the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption, Green Canyon, which is about two hours’ drive from Manila, sits prettily in the middle of a lush green canyon near the Clark Freeport Economic Zone. It opened in late 2014, and has earned the accolade for being the first eco-art resort in the country as it combines the elegance of art and beauty of nature to give people a rejuvenating experience.

The three-storey main hotel is a redesigned farm warehouse, partly made from boulders sourced from the nearby Socobia river, volcanic ash and lahar. As part of its green initiative, it uses solar panels as backup power source and a reverse osmosis water filtration system that makes water clean and potable. The pathway leading to the entrance, made of bricks from sugar mills of Negros, is lined up with bicycles, which guests can freely use to roam around the resort. I also spied wooden Mokujins, one of which is carrying a board with a Proverb quote “Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.”

Upon entering the main lobby, I was amazed by the preponderance of wooden artworks and furniture sculpted and painted by Nico and his team. They are all over the place - from floor, counter, walls, stairs to ceiling – and they have elevated an otherwise typical lobby into an art gallery, showcasing the artistry and ingenuity of Nico.

Some of Nico’s intrepid and extraordinary creations are mostly made from recycled and salvaged woods. The most notable of which is the 7-foot Think Big Chair made from over 5,000 pieces of century-old mahogany, tamarind, narra, tangili, kamagong, molave, palo de china, ipil, cherry, cedar, and palo ropa woods. His chairs may look quirky and whimsical but most of them are ergonomically sound, as if hugging whoever is sitting on them. Moreover, he wants every piece he makes to have soul so that the person who will be using or seeing it would feel an undeniable connection. A chandelier made of used bottles hanging on iron racks that used to be part of an old train, on the other hand, is the masterpiece of his father, Jojo Jose. The artistry really ran through the family bloodline.

The hotel has 47 unique rooms and a few stand-alone casitas good for couple, family and barkada. Most of the furniture inside the rooms, including bed frames, were made out of trees that got washed away by Typhoon Ondoy back in 2009. I was assigned, together with Ate Ivy, in the Upgraded Standard Room. Minimalist in design, the room is spacious and the bed soft and fluffy.

The Pavilion houses their all-day dining restaurant Palette, function rooms and a main hall for private events, and the open-air terrace Boulders View Deck. The restaurant serves home-cooked cuisine prepared with produce grown at the resort's organic farm.

There are several physical but fun activities to do within the resort – biking, swimming, and mountain trekking. And even if it was exhausting being in action due to summer heat, the open layout of the resort ensures a green and relaxing vista from all directions – still a good trade-off. The golden hour also offers spectacular sunrise and sunset views.
