Summer Getaways – Water Parks and Resorts near Metro Manila

What a hot day!!! How I wish I was lying around in some pool instead of sitting here in my office working.  It’s a slow day today, so here I am, surfing the net for great places to go to.  Only one requirement needed – WATER!!! Lots and lots of it.

Here’s a list of water park websites I found.  These resorts are great for day trips as well as overnights.  (A warning though, the SLEX traffic was horrible last Saturday.  So, its best to plan ahead on which route to take).

Splash Island (Binan, Laguna) –

Island Cove (Kawit, Cavite) –

8 Waves Water Park (San Rafael, Bulacan) –

9 Waves – Ciudad Christa Resort (San Mateo, Rizal) –

Club Manila East ( Taytay) –

Thunderbird Resort (Rizal) –

Amana Waterpark (Pandi, Bulacan) –

    it’s nice to have a break once in a while and i can’t agree more on taking that break during summer! i was wondering whether there is a new list of resorts near metro manila for 2009 including newly-opened ones?.. this is helpful for those with lots of kids in the family (they don’t fare well with long travel time)and for those who can’t afford to take long vacation leaves because of work demands. nice job on the compilation anyway!

  2. i heard that there’s a WATER PARK (with large pools and slides with tiangge around and resort with entertainers and party events) to open at Boom na Boom, CCP Complex by December, 2009. It was reported to be housed in about 10,000 square meters at the corner of Roxas Boulevard and Buendia.

  3. I don’t know about others but to me when I bring my family anywhere for a getaway or just to chill out, it is not just the amenities of the resort or its price that are important. It is the safety factor. On the recommendation of a good friend who happens to be a frequent tourist from Korea, I visited Clark Freeport and stayed at a really interesting place called Clearwater Resort.

    This is a very large place, a big lake, beach, lots of grass, trees, picnic grounds, a small number of hotel rooms of different styles. This place reminds me of California, not the big cities but the suburban towns.

    This is now my favorite weekend destination. It is clean, easy to get to – just 75 minutes from Manila, all highway not a single town, exit straight into Clark where there is really no traffic to speak of. But one word of advice – obey traffic rules because this is as strict as Calfornia, so take it easy and follow the rules.

    I also found an excellent place to wine and dine. It is in Mimosa and it is called Yats Restaurant & Wine Bar. This is 5-star and the prices are not as expensive as the hotels. You should try it but you have to put on something smart casual at least.
