The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) is a non-profit organization established by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) in 1966.
The "new normal" conditions in Southeast Asia compels SEARCA and all of its key partners to initiate anew a paradigm shift towards accelerating transformation through agricultural innovation (ATTAIN).
Looking for a conducive and affordable place to hold your training activities, seminars, workshops, conventions, and conferences?
Just 60 kilometers from the international and domestic airports in Metro Manila, SEARCA is highly accessible via private and public transportation. It maintains lodging and conference facilities in support of its program and services and these facilities are also available to other organizations who share SEARCA's interest in agriculture and rural development.
SEARCA's lodging and conference facilities are highly suitable for small to large group functions; they are open for use by other development-oriented organizations that share the Center's interest in promoting agriculture and rural development in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.
Nestled at the natural landscape of the scenic and legendary Mt. Makiling in the province of Laguna, Philippines, and close to a bustling international and national science community, and within the campus of the University of the Philippines at Los Banos (UPLB), a leading agriculture university, SEARCA offers a place to focus on tasks at hand in a conducive environment.
Set on the rolling hills of Mount Makiling, SEARCA hotels provide a quiet and relaxing ambiance with nature all around. Just a short drive from the SEARCA Headquarters, the SEARCA Residence Hotel and Annex are great choices for guests attending business events at SEARCA or elsewhere in Los Baños.
SEARCA's Main Building has a host of highly suitable conference and seminar facilities made convenient by the proximity of food services and availability of ample parking spaces and public transportation.
