Escaping Manila: Quick Getaway to Thunderbird Resorts – Rizal

Looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city but don’t have much much cash to spend on a ticket? Well, you don’t really have to go so far because right in Manila’s backyard, is a quaint little getaway spot — Thunderbird Resorts in Rizal Province.

This resort offers so much — a relaxing stay, outdoor activities, a casino, and endless spa treatments. All you’ll ever really need for that much-needed quick escape can be found here!

Now, while my friend and I only stayed for half the day here to have lunch at Olive Restaurant (Php400-500 / head) and go tandem biking (Php150 / 1 hour), I can say with confidence that the amenities are top-class and are actually priced reasonably.



Experience the fun and luxury in a day for only Php900 / person!

Package include:

  • Php400 Food & Beverage consumables
  • Use of infinity pool (7:00am – 7:00pm)
  • Use of wifi

**Children 4 years old and above are charged full rate

**Children 3 years old and below are FOC

**Acceptance of Day Tour visitor is dependent on hotel occupancy. Kindly call Front Desk, at least 7 days prior reservation is required. (NOTE: They don’t seem to be too strict about this, my friend and I just walked in that day and had no issues whatsoever considering they were fully booked for Holy Week)

TIP: Get there early to get your money’s worth! Swim in between meals, work on that tan and just relax! 

Don’t have a car to get there? Thunderbird Resorts offers a FREE shuttle service.
