Bakasyunan Resort in Tanay Rizal
There’s no better word to explain the happiness when you hear of vacation, team-building, or outing. Yes, that feeling when finally, you will be with your friends at work not for work but for an all-out fun and excitement. Is it me, or is it really hard to think of a place to go when it comes to outing and stuff? You know, all of you get excited but when deciding on the place, all of a sudden, a silence comes in like an angel just passed by. Fortunately, we’ve been wanting to go to Tanay, Rizal. So we decided to go there to experience the popular Bakasyunan Resort.
GOING TO TANAY RIZAL
Tanay, Rizal is very accessible via jeepney ride from EDSA Shaw or Cubao jeepney terminals but if you have a car, it is going to be a joyride. For about 2 hrs travel time, you’ll arrive in Tanay, Rizal and there will be tricycles to ride on to get to the resort.
“As the name implies, Bakasyunan is an authentic ‘vacation place.’ Its abundant flora and fauna, its back-to-nature ambiance and breathtaking panoramic vista — all have a calming effect on the soul. At Bakasyunan, one gets to harmonize with nature and to liberate one’s spirit . The forest appeal has a strong impression. Its cool climate is a big attraction. Windy mornings make one oblivious to the summer heat.”

Once you get inside, you will be welcomed by a huge playground where most of the team activities are done.
The activity area
I had fun watching them while taking pictures. Look at that giant ball for a group volleyball. The hanging bridge seems scary but I didn’t see anyone tried it, so I didn’t get a chance to see them screaming. The activity area is wide enough to cater for these games and events. This is a great place for team building to have a strong foundation while having fun. If participating in this stuff is not your cup of tea, you can just play around and have a moment with their other facilities.
POOLSIDE AND INN
Located past the activity area are some other amenities like the conference building, pools, and inns for an overnight stay.
As we walk and find our way to our cottage, you will definitely feel that the place is huge because our cottage is very far away from the entrance, so it is tiring especially that you have to pass by a lot of stairs being in a mountainous vicinity. But that’s the only tiring part – to go back and forth bringing your food and stuff.
FUN BONDING MOMENT
Before we start getting wet and wild, we prepared our food so that we are energized. Thanks to these folks who prepared our mouth-watering food for this day.
And so, the fun starts! Luckily, the place isn’t crowded yet when we arrived so we had the chance to take nice pictures and enjoy the place.
EXPENSES (BAKASYUNAN, DAY ONLY)
- 250 – Entrance fee
- 300 – Food per head
- 750 – cottage rental
Everything has been fun all day because of this great place, of course! Seems like you’ll never go wrong if you plan to visit this place soon. Also, there are other activities that you can try like ATV, zipline, rappel, mudslide, and much more if you browse Bakasyunan’s amenities page. This will surely be a memorable place for us and for you too. So go ahead and try this out!
