Balay buhay sa Uma or literally "House of life in the field" is so laid back that it is where time stands still...
A site for agri-tourism, the 2.5 hectare sanctuary is owned and operated by the Gambas. There are no road signs that point to the farm (hard to navigate), but it is well known by the locals. You can opt to rent one of the huts overnight, pitch a tent, or merely enjoy the streams and have lunch amidst the greenery...
There is no TV, no radio, no soda and no beer in this place. No cell signal either. You are literally cut off from civilization and I'll be honest-- it was refreshing! Flowers and trees in every corner with occasional fish ponds that are filled with koi-- that is what you can expect in this place. They grow sting-less bees that are only as big as flies... Beehives are made of coconut and old bird houses.
Follow the path to enjoy the falls and stream. This ends in pool that is filled with cold spring water that trickles down from the mountains... Take a dip, the water feels so good!
Everything they serve is all natural-- the tinola and tilapia were very light and fresh... No preservatives in sight. They served us with pandan juice and banana... Everyone had a pleasant time eating lunch amidst the lush greenery... I actually took a nap by the pool because the place was just super relaxing... No need for your white noise machines-- the sound of running water and the chirping birds were very real!
The self-sustaining farm sells products straight from nature... Honey, propolis, and fruits are being sold by the pound. Or you can choose to purchase soaps, teas, or oils made by the staff... Whatever you choose to do, I assure you it will be a slow and lazy stay in this bee farm...
Take note: make reservations. They do not always entertain walk-ins...
