Pyramid Sheds

Don Emilio Botanical Garden has a total of 20 sheds and can accommodate up to 2-3 people. The shed is not well-equipped and we advised you to bring your own power bank, as the shed doesn’t have an available electric socket. And when you visit the resort, be sure that all your gadgets are fully charged.

If you are planning to take a night at the resort, it is advised to prepare a blanket as the night gets colder. If you are the type of person who likes a cold mountain breeze and having a cozy night, then this is for you! And what’s more interesting, you’ll get to see a stunning view as the sunrises, embracing you with that warm glow.
