The Philippines is flourishing with opportunities. One of the prominent reasons behind this progress is expansion and development in the fields of business and investment sectors.
Golden Haven Memorial Parks is a real estate company specializing in the development of memorial parks. Golden Haven was established in October 1984 by the MB Villar Group of Companies headed by our Chairman, Former Senate President Manuel B. VIllar Jr. Our first project, Golden Haven Las Pinas, a 14-hectare property devoted for the southern communities of Manila, nearby cities of Paranaque, Muntinlupa, Bacoor, Pasay, Taguig, and the more accessible municipalities of Laguna.
Golden Haven now has over 30 Memorial Parks and 34 developments all across the country. We grow at an average of 3 to 4 new projects per fiscal year. The company is geared for vast expansion with the vision of having a themed memorial park in every hometown, as every Filipino dreams of retiring and enjoying life’s peaceful dusk in one’s hometown.
Golden Haven is dedicated to create a lasting memory for every investor and client alike with its various concepts in memorial park establishments. Our internationally acclaimed themed parks are designed to communicate sophistication and class, unlike no other within the industry.
