Protected by the mystical Mt. Banahaw, volcanic sister of Mt. Kanlaon, world famous Villa Escudero Plantation and Resort located in Tiaong, Quezon Province has always been a second home to the Haris.

The owner Don Ado Escudero (seen here judging at Hari ng Negros with Patis Tesoro) has always welcomed every year the new King of Negros Island to the Villa to experience Filipino hospitality at its finest.

Royalty is nothing new to Tito Ado, he is considered the Grand Patriarch of Philippine Society and has entertained many local and international celebrities, dignitaries and officials at the Villa. (Shown here with Prince Andrew, Duke of York, brother-in-law of the late Princess Diana.)

The Villa's charm is unique and extraordinary.

Visitors have a chance to get their feet wet while dining al fresco at Labasin Waterfalls.

Some of our best pictures are taken at this waterfall.

Or at rafts located adjacent to the Villa River Cottages.

There is something very special about the Villa, a certain magic that has changed the life of a Hari. It is here where Reiven Bulado hit rock bottom and started a brand new life. Mark Xander Fabillar decided to become a vegan here and champion the rights of animals, and where Paulo Mirasol found his true calling.

Thank you Tito Ado for taking care of the Haris and showing them purpose. Villa Escudero will always be the second home to the Haris.

Ralph, your destiny awaits.

Forever, Hari ng Negros.
