Thunderbird Resorts Rizal : Serenity at its Best

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"It's the stunning mountain views we really wanted to see. It's something we believe is the property's strongest asset. This, plus its accessibility from Metro Manila, makes it one of the better-value choices for harrowed city dwellers for the weekend. The surroundings have cool mountain air around instead of smog just like the splendid mornings of Baguio."

That is how a friend describes the Thunderbird Resorts hotel in the Rizal province. Just a stone's throw away from the always busy streets of Metro Manila. Plus with hotel shuttle vans available to pick you up from certain Metro Manila locations and back, there's no excuse in not being able to visit this luxurious travel, vacation or resting destination.

"The major amenities of the resort is the infinity pool, a casino, and a golf course next door where a round of 18-holes can be packaged with your stay at the hotel. The facade of the resort looks brand spanking new, very clean and well maintained. It’s not a very big resort, in terms of number of rooms available, which works to the guests’ advantage since you don’t see too many people loitering around the common areas." comment a blogger.

All 41 guest rooms are housed in two main wings, all of them facing the glamorous lake. Guests who prefer a direct casino access can book one of the Deluxe Rooms, but other than that, the Deluxe and the Superior Rooms have the same amenities every traveler with discriminating taste will appreciate.

"One of the resort’s jewels is its smallish, but very good looking infinity pool, which overlooks and seems to spill into, the Eastridge Golf Club right beside the resort. The pool’s depth though is quite curious,  with the main pool only 4’6″ at its shallowest and 5 feet at its deepest, a bit too deep for non-swimmers, yet too shallow for those who can. The attached kiddie pool meanwhile is 2 feet deep throughout. There’s also an open-air jacuzzi nearby, which actual warm water and functioning jets, perfect for those aching muscles of novice golfers, caused by repeated grounded swings." comments the same blogger.

The infinity pool is huge, warm and soothing for a relaxing dip during the day or night. There is a pool bar beside it that serves snacks and drinks, and even meals for lunch or dinner. You can either try out the buffet or order on a per meal basis.

The interiors of the hotels are equally classy and sophisticated. At the front lobby you will be greeted with a list of shows and activities happening at the hotel for your entertainment and pleasure.

These rooms come in a clean, understated vibe: the interiors have mostly earthy tones, and room has two double beds, making them ideal for families taking the kids for the weekend. This is not to say that friends cannot have as much fun with an impossibly huge bed to themselves.

The room amenities are superior among many other hotels I've visited. An indication that the hotel management takes good care of their guests and offers the best possible conveniences.

Complimentary slippers for two, and even laundry bags for your dirty clothes are available.

There's this personal fridge filled with drinks including beer...and some snacks and chocolates at the table. But they're not for free.

There are even coffee table books for some relaxing reading. There was a wedding suppliers coffee table book and a book all about the Thunderbird Resorts hotel and its history.

Key cards are given to guests to gain access to their rooms and also serves as the key to power on the electricity inside their rooms.

The view from the room upstairs allows you to see the huge property fronting the hotel. You can see the parking lots where you can park if you traveled by car. There is also a golf course infront where you can get a discounted rate if you are guests of the hotel.

More amenities of the room include a hair dryer, tissue dispenser,a bath tub to try out some bubble bath, a safe for your valuables, two extra pillows, a tray holder for some room service meals, plus some painting on the walls to add some artistic beauty.


I almost forgot to mention about the shampoo, conditioner and lotion - plus toothbrush, toothpaste and cotton buds! There's also glasses that you can use in gargling water after brushing your teeth.

Oh, and the key card comes in pairs, and comes in a sort of holder, so just in case you're a couple or sharing the room with a friend, business associate or colleague.

More pictures form up above our room:

The amenities and decor at the pool area consists of comfy poolside seats, a replica of a sand castle by the beach, a bubbling warm jacuzzi, dining tables for some snacks or drinks.

A staff gave us some orientation about the hotel and its amenities, plus answered some of our questions. Though he cracked a joke that he'd have to kill us to get the answer when we asked about the previous and current guests of the hotel.

There's also this great spot where you can exchange bows - ideal for weddings and other celebrations.

I mentioned about the golf course. Its getting kinda dark already when I took this picture but the terrain was really challenging.

"Many would troop to Thunderbird Resorts Rizal for its casino. The concept itself is rather uncommon - you don't see most hilltop resorts with their own casinos. This is the same concept that the resort has in La Union which in turn is done in that distinct white-and-blue palette inspired by the hillside town of Santorini in Greece." declares one friend.

I guess the casino is actually the highlight and biggest income-generating source of the Thunderbird Resorts hotel. The rooms are there for the convenience of the guest so they'll have a place to stay after a night of playing and trying their luck at the casino. Taking pictures were not allowed inside the casino so I could not show you any.

The restaurant like the Pool Side Bar and Koi restaurant, plus the pool are added amenities to improve their stay.

There is also a huge function room that can be rented for big occasions like summits, conferences and fora.

More views from our room:

This is where the spa and massage services are being provided. A complimentary massage was given to us. We had a choice whether to have it at this location or inside our rooms instead.

The room we got was room 220.

I got to like these interesting lizard decors on some of the walls of the hotel.

They also have this small room where the kids can play some video and computer games. Ideal to leave your kid while you take a dip in the pool or play at the casino.

What really got me sweating for was the bike ride amenities where the hotel lets you rent a bike so you can roam around the hotel property or at the bike trail, or even go as far as the Petroglyphs site.

I would loved to visit the Thunderbird Resorts hotel in Rizal province once again. I enjoyed my stay there and can't wait for a return soon!
