Anyone who’s ever built a career on hard work and a firm network of contacts will no doubt know the value of stepping back from time to time, to stop for a while, rest, and re-charge for the next tasks. A place where one could continue to think about what lies ahead while the body ensconces in luxurious relaxation would be perfect. Plumeria’s Premium Room offers such comfort, with an added sofa/bed convertible for a third guest, and still with the basic inclusions of cable television, free Wi-Fi, a personal fridge, and complimentary breakfast.

PADRE PIO SHRINE (15 minutes by car from Plumeria Hotel)
From a small chapel, St. Padre Pio Church has grown into a shrine with the altar bearing a huge crucifix and a painting of San Pedro by Jun Torres. This Holy Week more devotees are expected to visit the shrine to reflect and pray the Stations of the Cross, a Lenten reflection on the Passion of Jesus Christ.
Last September 23, 2013, about 10,000 faithfuls and devotees flocked in the Parish and Shrine in San Pedro, Sto. Tomas Batangas for the feast of the Franciscan stigmatist, Padre Pio.
Padre Pio was born in Italy in 1887 and adopted the name Pio when he became Capuchin priest after Pope Pious V, the patron saint of Pietrelcino- his home city.
Padre Pio, being the patron saint of the church was world famous for carrying the stigmata or wounds of Jesus Christ in the crucifixion and the miracles attributed to him.
