Garin Farm Iloilo City

The resort is beautifully designed for every one built-in with good customer service and amazing amenities waiting for you with your family and friends.

The resort will also give you a delightful experience of farm, leisure, and pilgrimage-together These three will tie up to become your most beautiful stay and unforgettable travel experience only in Garin Farm Inland Resort."My home is in heaven. I’m just passing through this world.” - Billy Graham

Upon entering Garin Farm, a long green vegetable tunnel will be your first sight. On the sides are different farm animals they take care of. Experiencing Garin Farm with my SFC Santolan-Greenpark Chapter family.

After a long tunnel of green vegetables, you can see a pond at the center of Garin Farm, wherein it offers activities such as zipline.

There is also doves' cage near the pond, so when all of them are flying, it was really fun to watch. After a not-so-long walk and sight-seeing.

You can also try the pilgrimage and experience heaven afterward. Gate to Garin Farm Pilgrimage. As you climb take time to stop and meditate on different scenes of  Christ’s life. Pray and feel God's holy presence.

Reaching the top was not that easy but a very satisfying moment for us, as we finally reached the inspiring Divine Mercy Cross and seeing the big image of the Divine Mercy was a great relief. One of the glimpses is when you enter a very dark room.

It recalls our challenges, dark times in life, and the moments when we don't know where's the light anymore.

Praise God! As the light appears and the tunnel takes you toward the light and into heaven. HEAVEN ON EARTH! The place is so bright that we could hardly open our eyes.

I had to shield my eyes from it until my eyes adjusted to the brightness. The light-filled me with the rapture of love, peace, and joy, it was so intense and so beautiful.

There are angels blowing their trumpets who stand beyond the gate of heaven as you can see the Throne of Light and Glory. Heaven is so beautiful, my heartfelt very peaceful.
