Weekend Getaway: Vista de Puente

Hi Guys! How are you? Hope your are doing well and your day is full of colorful stories . 😊

Today, I gonna share to you my recent and first trip this year with my ever lovely friends. We usually avail tour packages, but this trip we decided to commute. (Thinking it was a good idea and more fun) 😁

Our destination is Vista de Puenta in Ilijan, Batangas. We just found this through facebook. And my workmate told me also about this place and gave me a good feedback so it help us choose this place. So booked an overnight stay in the resort (February 16-17).

We travelled from Manila to Lemery, Batangas (Bus Terminal) on February 16 at 5:00 AM, we thought we will arrived there by 7:30 AM but we got stuck in the traffic jam in Turbina (part of Calamba City in Laguna). So we were in Lemery, I think past 8:00 AM. Since our check-in time is 2:00 PM we had our breakfast first then decided to look for other place to visit to kill some time. And that place is Fantasy World. 

Fantasy world supposedly an abandoned theme park but it became a tourist destination on its own. That may be because it look like a haunted Disneyland. 😁

Though it doesn’t have any operating rides, we still enjoy our time we spent in the park and we have lots of photos taken but I’m not going to share it all here. 😜 We left the park around 12 NN and travelled going to the resort for almost 3 hours.

It is so tiring and the weather is too hot that we really want to be in the resort as soon as possible. When we arrived at the resort, we didn’t waste our time. After we check-in, we changed into our swimming wear and heaavvveeennnn… the water. 😍😍😍

We stay in the pool for half an hour then go to the beach for like 30 minutes. We didn’t stay long since it was rocky and waves are too strong. But it still had fun!

Quick Dip Before The Year End

My colleagues and I decided to go out-of-town instead of exchanging gifts and dinning out as our Christmas celebration. We agreed to visit the Bakasyunan and Conference Center in Iba, Zambales.

They have 17 rooms and suites to choose from that suits to your liking.

What we booked is the Beach Side Room which cost Php 3000.00 ($ 59.73). It is good for three person, it’s already air conditioned with three beds so you don’t need to share and a shower room. (Sorry I don’t have the actual phot of our room. It so messy to post it here 😅)

The resort features lots of fun facilities like their mini golf, freedom wall, table tennis, billiards, ATV, and many more to make sure that you will never run out of things to do. Though we only tried the ATV and water bike, since we only stay for over night, but I can assure you that Bakasyunan and Conference Center is perfect for families looking for a weekend getaway to create fun and loving memories  and it also ideal for team building.

You can bring you own food but they have a food corkage of Php 200.00 ($ 3.98). They also have their own restaurant inside which serves a really good dishes, though you need to place to your order ahead of time for them to prepare it. I have no photos of the food we ordered since we are too hungry to take pictures of it. 😂

what I really loved in our trip is this…

the beach. After months of working we had the chance to take a break and enjoy ech others company. All thanks to our boss for letting us do this and to our dear almighty for giving us this such beautiful scenery of beach.

Its my first time to post about my travel experience but I hope that it kind of help you in some ways. Anyways, if you like to know more about the Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center, you may visit their website or contact them at (02) 668 8986 (Zambales) / (02) 440 1230 (Head Office).
