Last Friday, we went to a mountain resort in San Fernando for our yearly company outing. The name of the resort was Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort. I didn’t get the exact address of the resort, however, because I was asleep on my way there (and on our way back.) But my officemates said that there’s a huge sign along the National Highway so you won’t miss it.
Just a reminder for those who want to go there, though. The resort, according to some rough estimates of my officemates, is more than 10 kilometers from the Highway. And the road is small and quite dangerous (think of the road on the way to Sagada) if you’re not an experienced driver. But hey, our drivers managed to drive two big tourist buses and get us all there. So, yeah. I guess it’s still doable. :D And the place really gives justice to it’s name so I think you should check it out.
Of course you won’t remember how hard it was to get there when you’re actually there. Just look at that!
On our way to San Fernando. Satchmo is very excited!
We’re finally here! To the reception cottage of the resort.
This is the first pool of the resort. This is the one behind the reception cottage.
Some small huts with tables for day visitors.
Beside the first pool is a big pond where, they say, you can go fishing.
Going up a few steps, you can find the second pool. The pool was reserved exclusively for us. Satchmo looking even more excited.
The second pool is perfect for corporate events because it has a big function hall near it.
View of our pool from the third pool. Yes, there is a third pool. LOL.
This is the third pool. It’s very deep so you should be very careful.
Man-made mini-waterfalls. Very nice.
Rooms facing the third pool. Cool.
Some more rooms.
On the other side are more rooms. There is a volleyball court right in front of them.
Going up. More rooms up there!
This is the basketball court with some of the resort’s more expensive rooms. I heard that there is another pool up there.
Aside from swimming, there are other fun things to do there. They have a zipline! Coool!
Jenny checking out the zipline!
Can you handle it? Hehehe.
Alex Yap does the “Running Man’. Hahaha.
Vet doesn’t look scared here. Hehehe.
When you get to the other side, you can then try the monkey bridge.
The monkey bridge over the green pond.
Cel in action.
After the monkey bridge, you can go back to the platform using this rope. All three activities for just 75 pesos. If you have 3 other friends, you will only have to pay 350 for two rounds each.
After the party, Satchmo posed with some friends. Satchmo with Will.
Here’s Satchmo with Marge. By the way, Satchmo is now in Singapore with Vet and Dencio. I’m sure he’s having a grand, grand time!
