Two years ago, we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Club Manila East Taytay. The original plan was Boracay but due to financial constraints, it didn’t push through. Still, we had fun that day because of Club Manila East’s great water attractions. Below are photos and updated Club Manila East Taytay review that will guide and help you decide to visit the place.
Club Manila East Taytay is a seven-hectare resort situated inside the village so you have to ride a jeepney from the village gate to the resort. If there are no jeepneys available, you can ask the security guard at the gate to call the resort and the resort service will fetch you from the gate. Or if you want, you can walk from the gate to the resort (about 1 kilometer) like what we did because there was no jeepney available and we didn’t know that we can be fetched by the resort’s service.
Upon reaching the resort, there was the reception area, the cashier and the aviary. It’s very simple place outside. We could hardly believe that inside is a seven-hectare facility. The best resort we have visited so far in Manila’s suburbs.
Before you browse the pictures below, please read these:
1. Bringing of food inside the premises is not allowed. You can bring your food provided you will eat them in the parking area (inside your vehicle). Club Manila East has in-house restaurant that serves Filipino and continental dishes.
2. Like in any other resorts, you can only wear proper swim suits plus you have to wear a wrist tag while inside the CME premises. The wrist tag is water proof and will be given to you upon payment of the entrance fee.
3. Entrance fee is P350 per person. Children below 3 feet is free. Day accommodations ranges from P1,000-P1,500 and night accommodations from P3,050-P3,300 or click here for the updated rates.
4. All accommodations have locks so you don’t have to worry about your things and you do not need to leave a person to look after them. You just need to deposit P300 for the keys so don’t lose the key or there goes your P300.
There are 100 Cabanas available surrounding the gigantic lagoon which is a scaled-down model of Laguna de Bay. This is good for up to 20 persons complete with sink, shower and bath.
Sorry, I have no picture to share for this one as it was deleted from our camera. The hut I think is 2.5 x 2.5 square meters with monoblock table and chairs. Good for 10 persons.
Beach View Cabins
You can stay here if you want the view of the beach. This is facing the beach wave pool. Can accommodate 10-12 persons.
Would you believe you can use these picnic huts for free? So if you are alone and just want to swim, do not bother to pay for big cottages. Don’t worry about your valuable belongings as there are lockers for rent. I just don’t know how much is the rent for a locker.
For Overnight Accommodations:
Doña Luz Hills View Villas
Can accommodate families and barkadas. Each Doña Luz villa is furnished with two single-beds, a sofa bed, hot and cold shower, bathtub, a mini-bar, a microwave oven, and a dining area.
Don Renato Garden Villas
Perfect for couple who want some quiet moments. Don Renato rooms are available with one matrimonial bed or two single beds, a dining area, hot and cold shower, a microwave oven, a huge mirror by the bed, and an outdoor mini pool.
The Gigantic lagoon is a 9,100 square meter that holds the Sun-screened Pool, The Boating Area for the kayak and wake boarding, The Kiddie Pool (hope this one is shaded too just like the other pool) and the Giant Slide Pool.
The Kiddie Pool…with fountains and waterfalls.
The Sun-screened Pool…for those who are afraid of sun burn.
The Boating/Kayaking Area
The Buzzy River
A 600-foot stream of gently flowing water across 16,000 square feet of land. Guests can ride in rubber tubes and go by its riverbanks, thru waterfalls and under bridges, and just relax and enjoy the sounds and scenery. My husband really wanted to try this but unfortunately it was closed.
The Lap Pool
The Beach Wave Pool
A 19,000 square feet pool with waves of 8 different patterns and with maximum height of 4 feet.
Ocean Waves is the biggest wave pool and the first surfing pool in the Philippines. Its size is more than ten basketball courts combined. It is divided into 3 parts, the Diving Pool, The Family Waves, and the Surfing Pool. Sadly, it is closed for cleaning when we went there.
Their latest attraction is the 6-storey high (320 meters long) zipline that will take you across the entire resort. Teehee! Can’t wait to be back there.
