Club Manila East

Club Manila East

Club Manila East is definitely the place to be during summer. In only the span of 12 short years, this resort has grown to be the multi-recreational getaway destination in humble Taytay, Rizal. What? Taytay, Rizal? Yes, in Taytay, Rizal which is only about 30 minutes from Pasig and an hour or two from Manila. The resort offers the ultimate summer fun experience with their 7 hectare resort and as a first timer, I thought I was going to get lost.       The Funtasy Lagoon is a 9100 square pool for the adventurous as this huge pool offers the chance to go kayaking or surfbiking, also known as water bicycles.

The answer to that was a lot – and I mean it, a lot. The surfing competition was scheduled at 1pm and bloggers had their own cabanas right in front of the Ocean Waves pool. The Ocean Waves pool, launched in 2009 has an area of more than the total area of 10 basketballs. If you’ve been to a basketball court, times that by 10 and you know what I mean. The pool was huge. This pool is also the first in the country wherein you can actually surf. How, you may ask? This is because the powerful waves in this pool rises up to a whopping 1.5 meters high which is yes, very much enough to surf in. The Surfing Competition is divided into three classifications: the kids division, women’s division and the men’s division.
