escape to thunderbird

when i am back home, there are just moments that i just suddenly decide to leave the house and go somewhere without telling anyone.  i then decided to visit a place which is only about a 30 minute ride from our house in binangonan, rizal which is thunderbird resorts.

Perched in a highland valley along the Sierra Madre range, Thunderbird Resorts – Rizal is more than the usual quiet mountain sanctuary. It’s a luxury getaway that provides a spectacular setting for you to relax, rejuvenate, and rediscover yourself.

this resort has been featured by some local bloggers including my friend, chyng.  i did called their reception and checked if there were rooms available and there were vacancies.  a special rate was offered by the receptionist as i checked-in wherein an overnight accommodation included an a’ la carte breakfast, a complimentary 15 minute massage, P300 worth of fiesta match play in their casino and free wi-fi.  just take note that they will require you a refundable P3000 damage fee which can also be used for any charges you acquire during your stay in the resort.

they also have an infinity pool and an outdoor jacuzzi.  i took a dip in this pool at night-time and enjoyed a scenic view of the manila skyline.

there is a pool bar beside the infinity pool where i sang my heart out (i did, haha!) with their free use of videoke.

the room i stayed in was cozy and spacious but i think they have to ‘upgrade’ their television set.  after staying at oakwood premier, i will never forget a suite with three lcd televisions!

a distinct asian fusion cuisine is served at koi, one of the resort’s restaurants.  i had vegetarian penne and pizza (i had to remove the pepperoni, and did i just said asian cuisine? lol!) for lunch, fudge chocolate cake for dessert, tofu with mix veggies for dinner and daing na bangus and sunny side-up eggs for breakfast.

it was surely an indulging escape to stay even just overnight at thunderbird, my parents did not even know i was there until i told them the next day when i went back home – good thing they don’t use facebook, haha!
