Santerra: A Wellness District Rises in Bicol

Wellness has been a buzzword for quite some time now. Its steady popularity, especially in the healthcare and hospitality industries, is due largely to life’s daily stresses—from traffic to pollution, inflation to health concerns—and people wanting to break free from them.   

The real estate industry has joined the bandwagon, with wellness communities sprouting across the globe. Despite its reputation as a fad, the wellness industry is oftentimes well meaning. Backed by proven methodologies, from the traditional to the esoteric, it is an attempt to bring back a sense of balance in an otherwise chaotic world.

While many believe wellness deals largely with mental and physical well-being, the philosophy behind it is holistic, always with the end goal of enhancing an individual’s quality of life.

Inspired by the concept of wellness, and its vision of improving the lives and enriching the future of Filipino families, Vista Estates has chosen to build the very first nature and lifestyle estate in the country in Naga, the beating heart of Bicol.

Santerra: Right in the heart of everything

Aside from being Camarines Sur’s largest city, Naga is also Bicol’s business, educational, and cultural center. It is also a tourist destination, known best for being a pilgrimage city and the region’s adventure capital.

Naga is the perfect choice, then, as the site of Vista Estates’ Santerra. A city where the past and the present coexist in harmony, and where the rejuvenating beauty of nature is within arm’s reach. 

Santerra by Vista Estates is strategically located in the middle of Naga, which itself is in the center of Camarines Sur. Situated at the heart of Bicol, it is the hub for goods from Metro Manila, other parts of Luzon, and the Visayas. It is also at a most convenient location between uptown and downtown Naga.

Downtown Naga to its left is the city’s central business district (CBD). To its right is uptown Naga that boasts natural attractions such as hot springs, waterfalls, and the imposing Mount Isarog.

A development for holistic wellness

Dedicated largely to nature and designed to foster holistic wellness, Santerra is a portmanteau of the Latin words sani, meaning “health,” and terra, which means “earth.”

Terra is also the Roman goddess of the earth. Thus, Santerra is a tribute to the goddess and Vista Estates’ dream to elevate the lives of its residents, with the 64-hectare development being blueprinted as a nature reserve within which residences and commercial hubs will rise.

Anchored on wellness and inspired the bounty of Bicol’s nature, Santerra will be where city living perfectly melds with the great outdoors.

Central to the development are spaces which have been master planned to cater to the many aspects of wellness. Physical wellness, for example, will be nourished by places where an active lifestyle can be maintained. Groceries, restaurants, and shops will offer healthier and sustainable options.

Nearby are the region’s top educational institutions that can help in providing mental wellness. One’s emotional and social wellness can be nurtured by a sense of community among its residents. Places of worship which will rise in the area can enhance the spiritual wellness of its residents.

Santerra will be a place where nature is regarded with utmost respect. In response to today’s need for environmental wellness, there will be materials recovery facilities around the estate, as well as recycling, segregation, and carbon emission reduction programs.

Santerra, then, will be a haven for those seeking overall wellness while surrounded with modern conveniences amid nature’s majesty.

An investment toward a better way of living

Vista Land is investing in these master planned developments, making good on its promise to its homebuyers and investors to continue to create superior offerings and deliver excellent long-term investment growth.
