Invading CATTLEYA RESORT


Every year,  Acierto Clan traditionally brings the whole family for an out-of-town summer escapade. We usually go to Pansol, Laguna and enjoy its hot springs but this year we preferred to go somewhere near like Antipolo.

Because of our large number, we can only afford an overnight or two-day stay to any private resort.  We usually make the road trip on January to search for clean and spacious rooms that can accommodate the entire clan. Once the reservation was settled, we start the countdown

This 2012, we invade the cold waters of Cattleya Resort.  Came March 31, more than 60 of us headed for the hills of Antipolo, Rizal.


Our meeting place was Jollibee-Tikling Branch to have our breakfast. We were the first customers of that morning.  While waiting for our orders, we took some photos.

After eating...took more photos.  "STRIKE a POSE"  Never got enough of pictures here... picture there. Fun fun fun! The closeness between our families are just incomparable. Everywhere we go and whatever we do... we share moments with so much joy in our hearts

We've reached our destination at around 7:30 but we stayed outside and waited until the maintenance people had  finished cleaning up the clutter left by the outgoing occupants.

The playground was the crowds' favorite spot while trying to overcome boredom and withholding their growing anticipation of the refreshing experience awaiting inside.  Just look at these two BIG men... playing like kids.  Good for them, the swing were able to carry their "quite" heavy weight. QUITE heavy weight??? They could hardly move the swing.

We've waited around 30 minutes and the children were so excited to get inside and plunged into the swimming pool.  At last, their enthusiasm was finally reciprocated when the maintenance staff signaled the group to enter the premises.

The four sisters brought  a special dish of their own and the rest of the foods were prepared by the ENRIQUEZ family.  My Mom's "bopis" was so savory that it became the bestseller but I wasn't able to take a photo of it. SAYANG!   :(

  8. very detailed ah, hehehe. anyway, it's really great for families to have some sort of get together annually as a way of relaxing and bonding together.

    dropping by here marri. :-)

  9. Wow! The rates are quite affordable, given that you're more than 60 who's staying in the resort? Have you tried Loreland's in Antipolo? We were about less than 20 people (family members).

    ReplyDelete
  10. Looks like this is a nice place. And malapit lang from Manila.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Fun time with the whole clan! Funny to see even grown men enjoying the swings :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow an out of town family outing, fun! We rarely go out of town coz our kids are still so young and it's not easy to bring them all the time. Hope to have an activity like this soon too with my relatives, I have not attended our reunion for a very long time.

  18. Sa dami ng pictures na kuha mo, I'm sure sulit na sulit ang stay nio.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I felt like a stalker looking at your family pix. :)) Nice personal touch though, better than just showing brochure-worthy photos of the resort. I guess more than the facilities, the smiles of your family members would really sell this place.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, lots of photos and you guys seem to really had fun! :D I still haven't gone out swimming, busy kasi. But hopefully our family get to go on an outing too before summer ends.. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  21. looks like a really fun place, I laughed hard at the swing were two guys were sitting ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  22. the pools look well-designed. :)
    based on the number of photos, it's really clear that you enjoyed the place with your companions. :)

    cheers.

  24. I love big family outings! I usually plan quick getaways with 16+ family members in tow. Anyhow, for your next trip, you might want to try Loreland. It's also by Antipolo. It has a lot of pools and affordable lodgings. Ü

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like that the place has an overlooking view of nature and pool at the same time.

  26. Ang saya namang tignan ng bawat pics... halatang nag enjoy talaga lahat. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. looks decent resort for the whole family. the price won't matter compared to the enjoyment you had in the place and with the whole clan ...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ive been traveling a lot, and mostly by my own or with my travel buddy.
    I missed doing activities like these were I can let go and have fun with my family...
    Nowadays, time with family can be a priviledge.
    the palce is also interesting, me price ranges pah..
    Think I'll show your link to my team mates..
    this place seems liek a perfect team building location.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You are all look have a lot of fun. I wish I could do this to my family this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's really a good activity for a close family ties to have outings regularly and strengthen the bond of family relationship within the clan. We do also the same with out clan.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Judging from your photos i'm sure the entire clan had a great time during your reunion and Cattleya Resort was a perfect venue with all the amenities..

    ReplyDelete
  38. you look like you had so much fun...I wish we had a large family like yours too and get to bond like this. The place looks really clean and well furnished...the last time I went to Pansol was in the 80's.

    ReplyDelete
