Prana Garden Villas is Cavite’s luxurious bastion of wellness
In today’s times, wellness has, all the more, become a way of life.
It’s a powerful movement that has been shaping not only lifestyles but also a diverse set of industries, as the concepts of balance and holistic wellness are inspiring many to choose well—from the food they eat, the hobbies they take up, even down to the kind of spaces and communities they would opt to live in.
Especially in the last three years, many have finally started to see how their surroundings can have a significant impact on their behaviors, lifestyles, and overall well-being. As such, homebuyers have become more discerning, favoring elegant designs and modern features that foster wellness, amid a backdrop of healthy and vibrant surroundings.
Natural way of life
In Trece Martires, Cavite, a subsidiary of property giant Megaworld Corp. is creating such healthy settings in a luxury residential village, where wellness will be a natural way of life.
The 41.8-ha Prana Garden Villas—which is being developed by Global-Estate Resorts Inc. (GERI), the Philippines’ leading developer of masterplanned integrated tourism estates—is envisioned to become a sanctuary of wellness, proactively designed to cater to this growing demand for healthy spaces.
The development’s name, Prana, fittingly represents this vision. After all, Prana is said to come from a Sanskrit word that means “life force” or “breath”. In some cultures, keeping the “prana” balanced is critical as this is seen as key to ensuring their well-being.
“Through this development, we intend to create a sanctuary of wellness that allows future residents to nurture unique, holistic lifestyles while living harmoniously with nature,” said Rachelle I. Peñaflorida, first vice president for sales and marketing of Megaworld Global-Estate Inc.
“We are very excited to showcase the elegance of living amid nature at Prana Garden Villas, which has been mindfully planned to blossom together with its surrounding landscape. The village will also provide easy and convenient access to the Sherwood Hills Golf and Country Club since it will rise just beside the world-class leisure development,” Peñaflorida added.
The Zen-Balinese fusion-inspired luxury residential village is set to rise within the 340-ha integrated lifestyle community, Sherwood Hills, it is a development by Global-Estate Resorts, Inc. Taking cues from nature and the laidback Balinese culture, Prana Garden Villas will afford future residents with a host of perks, stemming primarily from a seamless connection between the indoors and the outdoors.
Here, 40 percent of the entire village will be allocated for green and open spaces, including verdant thematic parks, that can serve as the green lung of this community.
A sprawling Grand Clubhouse will undoubtedly inspire an active lifestyle as it will give residents access to a multi-level pool, a wading pool, differently-abled pool, cabanas, meditation area, yoga and exercise deck, dry river walk, a sunken outdoor seating area, a courtyard, and covered walkways. A fitness center, a basketball court, pet park, and a children’s playground will further enable residents to indulge in healthy activities, whether alone or with company.
Other topnotch modern indulgences will have you wanting to stay at home longer. There will also be collaboration space, a daycare, function area, a number of aesthetic water features, as well as sand gardens, which are also referred to as Zen gardens, perfect for contemplation.
Prospective buyers and investors are given 178 lot options, with sizes ranging from 240 sqm to 513 sqm. This first phase of the project is expected to generate P1.3 billion in sales. It is expected that the lots will be turned over to their owners by 2026.
Although Prana Garden Villas is a beautiful nature sanctuary, modern creature comforts remain highly accessible. This up and coming wellness community will be surrounded by schools, hospitals, establishments, institutions and even leisure resorts. Soon, a commercial area will also be built near the development. It is likewise just five minutes away from a major thoroughfare like Governor’s Drive, an hour’s drive to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), and less than two hours away from the central business districts of Makati and Fort Bonifacio.
What’s good is that you can be well assured that such a vision can be achieved. After all, GERI has long been recognized for its innovative developments by prestigious award giving bodies. Just last December, GERI bested some of the top developers in the region to be named as the “Best Lifestyle Developer” at the Asia Property Awards by PropertyGuru.
It is indeed fortunate for homebuyers today that emerging enclaves like the Prana Garden Villas have gone beyond simply being residences, as they are also fast shaping up to be a smart investment on your health and wellness.
