The third and final installment of our Tagaytay trip where we stayed at Wilson’s Place and toured Yoki’s Farm. This time around, I’ll let you in on what to expect when you stay or do a day trip at Balay Indang in Cavite.
Balay Indang is formerly known as Red Ginger Farm. Balay means house & Indang is the town in Cavite where this 5 hectare bed and breakfast retreat house is. It has about 28 rooms with swimming pool, function halls and the main house which serves as the main dining hall. Among these facilities, they also have pocket gardens in almost every corner which gives you a chance to reconnect with yourself and with nature. It’s the perfect retreat place whether you’re alone or with a company. Come join the GJGs as we toured Balay Indang.
The main house is on the right from the entrance/ parking area.
“Mom, they have a table for kids!”
The waiting area that leads to the main dinning hall.
The common dinning hall where a wall is dedicated for mirrors.
The veranda of the dinning hall is also a good place to have your breakfast or dinner. But since it was summer and I have two ultra-sweaty kids, they placed us inside instead.
Like the food at Wilson’s Place, the menu is already pre-selected. Unless you have food allergies or special request, better to inform them a week before when you have you reservation just so they can prepare it for you. I don’t really know the name of each dish since I was too overwhelmed and quite frankly really hungry that i just took the photos and ate my way through the comforting food.
Carrot Fried Rice
Salted Dried Fish & Egg Pasta
Creamy Mushroom Cauliflower
Baby Back Ribs
My top three favorite dishes were the ribs, (tender, fall off the bone goodness) salted egg pasta and the wasabi tuna. I’ll come back for these dishes!
The library was converted into a living space since the weekend we went, Balay Indang was fully booked. So much so that they had converted the library for guests to sleep in.
The rustic feel of the place reminds me of the time of our grandparents. Di ba? Back when life was simple.
The shower in each room at Balay Indang is very much close to nature with the white rocks that filled the shower area.
There’s a pool table too!
During our visit, the Elizabeth Hall was being prepped for a wedding reception. I think about 200-300 people can fit in this function hall.

Outdoor play with my lil’ GJGs. Aaaah, eh gun ma-miss ko mag see-saw?! 😀
Bongga ng bougainvillaea!
Thank you so much Raquel and Marge for the lovely brunch and for showing us around Balay Indang. The GJGs had fun!
