These ‘Hobbit Houses’ Aren’t in New Zealand, But in Lucban, Quezon!

It looks ~magical~

The Lord of the Rings filming locations are some of the biggest draws of New Zealand. But you don’t have to go all the way to New Zealand to visit the Shire — you can find hobbit houses in Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel, which is just in Lucban, Quezon!

 

Teresita’s Garden

The reproduction of “Hobbiton” is found in a portion of the resort called Teresita’s Garden.

Teeming with rows and rows of colorful flowers, Teresita’s Garden is the perfect place for photo ops.


Apart from Hobbiton and the field of flowers, you can also get your photo taken in other IG-worthy spots, such as this heart-shaped sculpture, an old VW Beetle filled with flowers, and a rainbow-roofed shed!

You don’t have to book a stay at the hotel to visit Teresita’s Garden; you can opt for their day tours.

The day tour rates are:

WEEKENDS
Adult P200 Kids P170

WEEKDAYS
Adult P170 Kids P150

 

Staying at Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel

Batis Aramin is a stone’s throw away from Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church and Via Dolorosa Grotto. It’s also located near Mt Banahaw National Park, and on clear days, the beautiful mountain is easily visible from almost anywhere in the resort.
