Family Swimming Getaway Near the Metro ~ Cattleya Resorts Antipolo

I was the designated scout for a recent family swimming getaway.
The task was simple enough
Find an affordable, clean private pool venue for a 20+ persons, near the Metro (with no more than 30 minutes to 1 hour travel)... GOODLUCK ME!  
So where do I find one?
We are from Taytay and my bets are private pool rentals in Tanay and Antipolo.   
Our search led us to Cattleya Resorts in Antipolo, just 30 minutes away from where we live. Cattleya Resorts as of writing is made up of nine (9) private rental pools. Rental price range from P4500 to P12000 for day (9am-5pm)use and P5500 to P14000 for a night (7pm-7am) use. 
  1. Corazon - day P12000 / night P14000
  2. Isabel - day P10000 / night P12000
  3. Cristina- day P7000 / night P9000
  4. Dominique- day P10000 / night P12000
  5. Maricor- day P8000 / night P10000
  6. Catherine- day P7000 / night P9000
  7. Arabella- day P7000 / night P9000
  8. Patricia- day P4500 / night P5500
  9. Imelda- day P4500 / night P5500
Pools 1 to 7 are good for 50 persons, while pools 8 and 9 are good for 12 persons.

The package comes with:
  • Free use of a videoke machine (but may be used up to 12midnight only in observance of the barangay Noise Ban Ordinance);
  • Barbeque grill (bring your own charcoal);
  • Air-conditioned rooms (number of rooms depends on the pool you are renting);
  • Private restrooms;
  • Kitchen (with refrigerator and stove);
  • Children's playground
We have checked out two of Cattleya's pools: Cristina and Catherine. 
Cristina has a more scenic view, as it is located at the top most portion of the resort with plenty of trees to block off the scorching sun, however, I find it a bit dated (I think it is one of the first pools to be built in the Cattleya resort's complex).
Pictures of the Cristina Pool
The bedrooms and bathroom were clean and spotless.
Our choice is the Catherine. It has the same facilities as the Cristina, but is newer built. It is located a bit downhill from the resort entrance. Which was fine as it offered more privacy.
Plenty of tables and chairs.
There is also  kiddie pool.

My first boodle fight experience - Fun but such a Riot! 

You need not go far to have a wonderful summer getaway. 
  • Cattleya resort offers affordable and clean private pool for family enjoyment. 
  • We love that it is very accessible to where we live, meaning more time spent bonding and swimming over travelling.
  • Booking was easy and transaction smooth.  
  • We had a real good time and would not hesitate to come back.

  1. Usually when we rent private pools we go to Laguna because it's nearer to us but I guess next time we'll check those near your area para maiba naman. :)

  9. Got the number already. Will inquire for pools 8 or 9 as we are seven only and my boys are very eager to swim. This is perfect as our last hurray before summer ends. Super thanks for this.

  10. I noticed the Room names they got. All starts with "C". Well anyways, there place is great for family gathering. I bet that boodle fight was a great experienced for you too.

  11. Looks like worth it naman the place, although sayang kasi a bit far from us. Great that you can bring in food and also use a videoke and their grill super okay yung bayad!

  12. It is a fun job to look for places to go for your family vacation. We have just gone back from our 3-day vacay and I cannot wait to plan the next one. This looks like a lovely place to visit in Antipolo. Hopefully, we can visit it one day.

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.


Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.

Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Club Level BenefitsComplimentary Deli at Kingdom Club Lounge (730am to 10pm) which includes assorted fresh pastries, cereal, fruit, hot breakfast selections and beverages in the morning; Selection of scrumptious appetizers with your choice of complimentary beer and wine late afternoon and light snacks night time.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.

If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
