A total of 80 percent of the development’s land area is dedicated to world-class amenities including swimming pools, clubhouse and a basketball court, a tennis court, an amphitheater, yoga deck, meditation area, nature trail, and a jogging path, among others. A perimeter road was also constructed to allow for safe movement of residents, particularly children, in between units and amenity areas.

Ready for occupancy Anala features studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units in every floor. Each floor only has an approximate of 20 units, and each unit has a kitchen, a toilet and bath, and a laundry area. One-bedroom and two-bedroom units will have a balcony.

When we developed Anuva, we focused on low density living to make sure that our residents have a home that truly feels like one,” John Paul G. Reyes President, SOC Land Devt. Corp said. “We believe that sustainable living is possible even in a condo living set-up. We pride ourselves in providing homes that work with nature, not against it.”

To help bring the distinct condo living experience to its residents, SOC Land teamed up with the country’s leading broadband and multimedia services provider, PLDT HOME, for the installation of PLDT HOME Fibr in all of Anala’s new units. PLDT HOME Fibr is PLDT HOME’s most powerful broadband with speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

Our residents deserve nothing less than the best-in-class services, and we definitely think that PLDT HOME Fibr will be able to provide the most powerful broadband at home. Their service will fit in right with our own suite of world-class amenities,” Reyes added.

Three high-speed elevators and staircases serve the Anuva building. Residents also enjoy the protection and convenience of a 24-hour security service, fire detection and alarm system, and centralized garbage collection system.
