Somebody posted a link on my facebook account regarding this retreat house located in Lipa City. The place is called the Capuchin Retreat Center. I guess this place is new since I grew up in Lipa and I haven't heard about this place. I clicked the link and visited their site. Here's some information about this place taken from their multiply site

The Capuchin Retreat Center provides guests with a time and place of serenity and quiet withdrawal from the busy noise of everyday life. The Center is a perfect venue for a spiritual get-away that helps people encounter their truest self and gain a fresh perspective of God’s presence and action in their life. A resident retreat team of Capuchin Franciscan friars are available to facilitate unique and effective programs as well as administer the sacraments like Confession and Eucharistic Celebration.

During their stay with us, our guests also come to appreciate our warm hospitality and competent service, as well as our clean and cozy private rooms, peaceful surroundings and delicious meals served by friendly and accommodating staff. What’s best, we are only a short ninety minutes away from Manila!


The Center, with 80 private rooms each equipped with toilet and bath, can accommodate as many as 220 overnight guests. Beddings and sheets are provided so that each room is ready for occupancy upon arrival. The Center has a spacious private Chapel, a prayer room, four (4) spacious conference halls that may be used with or without air-conditioning, and a modern audio-visual hall that may also be converted to a conference hall.
