Thunderbird Resort Rizal – Weekend at the Rizal Thunderbird Resort


Another one of my bucket list got unticked when my family and I finally got the chance to stay overnight at the Rizal Thunderbird Resort, after the many occasions that we’d be here for day tours. Fortunately, there was still room for us when we walked in without prior reservation.

My family’s main reason for this trip was really to relax, unwind and catch up with one another. So it doesn’t matter to us if there’s limited number of activities to do, apart from swimming, playing in the playground and lounging around, especially since we are not gamers.

A few things that stand out in this resort over the others is its scenic view and ambiance. The view allows you to lounge around and enjoy the view, emptying whatever baggage you have from the entire work-week. The infinity pool and jaccuzzi are both child-friendly since they are not quite deep (only around 4+ feet at the most).

Well-maintained despite being considered ‘old’ due to its long-time presence, it is one of the selfie-friendly places one can find.

Personally, I consider Thunderbird’s strength is the good quality of its beddings and pillows. You will love the freshness and cleanliness of the sheets and the fluffy pillows. If only for these, you will not want to go out of your room.

Our accommodation is inclusive of breakfast buffet for two. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I felt that the Tuscan-themed Olives Restaurant can still offer more variety in its food offerings, especially when it comes to its buffet offerings. Nevertheless, the accommodating  and friendly staff can make up for whatever I might be looking for.

It also has a shuttle service in prime locations around Rizal: Cainta, Taytay, Antipolo, Angono, Binangonan and Morong. For Metro Manila customers, it has shuttles available in St. Francis Square in Ortigas.

Summer in Manila means time to hit the beach due to the very hot season. It’s great to know that the Rizal Thunderbird Resort is just an hour and a half away from Metro Manila if the next time to visit this resort strikes.

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
