The Tran Central Highway of Cebu just got more colorful with the newest botanical garden in town – Lakeview Le Jardin.
Lakeview Le Jardin is the new botanical garden in Brgy. Tabunan, Cebu City that treats its guests with a scenery of the gardens filled with colorful plants and a view of the lake through the mountains. It just had its soft opening last March 16 to showcase thousands of flowers and plant varieties that will surely tickle the plantita and plantito spirits in us.
Cebu’s tourism industry is booming, and we can’t deny the fact that the blooming gardens scattered all throughout the Trans Central highway have attracted more and more tourists every year. For sure, we have already seen our friends flaunting their beautiful photos online with backdrops from Sirao Flower Garden, Terrazas del Flores, Buwakan ni Alejandra, Evo Nature Camp, or MSDEA Ornamental Garden to name a few.
Lakeview Le Jardin is a new spot that’s worth a visit. It will treat you to an IG-worthy setting and a relaxing environment bursting with sweet floral scents and stunning view of the nearby mountain ranges. A day of walking around their hectare-wide garden will never go to waste.
Aside from visiting beaches, a stroll with your family and loved ones around botanical gardens like Lakeview Le Jardin is also an effective way to strengthen family ties, not to mention that this can be a good avenue to raise ecological awareness and increase appreciation for environmental conservation efforts.
A RESTAURANT TOO
Lakeview Le Jardin is not just a botanical garden but a restaurant too. In fact, this garden comprises two levels – the main level where the restaurant is located and the botanical garden. This makes this place a perfect place for our next weekend excursion since it allows us to munch on delicious food while enjoying the fullness of what the place can offer.
The best deal? They got the best chefs in town. Enjoy an array of mouth-watering dishes that are perfectly seasoned to satiate our cravings right in the heart of a wide garden. The restaurant’s interiors are designed to highlight a cozy façade and other horticultural elements, blending well to the breath-taking view of the surroundings. Their food choices are also said to complement the tropical conservatory climate abundant in these higher parts of Cebu.
If you’re looking for a place that can give you not just a serene and fresh embrace of nature but also delicious food, visit Lakeview Le Jardin.
