A place of respite
(The Philippine Star) - February 5, 2016 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Nestled among the rolling hills of Binangonan is a place where one can spend a quiet staycation far removed from the worries of city life. Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos-Rizal offers a relaxing respite, with plush club amenities and accommodations that guarantee a comfortable cocooning experience. It makes for an ideal vacation destination because of the serenity of the surroundings, where one can enjoy a calming scenery of lush greens.  

But serene doesn’t mean there are no exciting activities that one can enjoy with friends and family, with facilities not usually found in resorts. Aside from a sparkling pool and an outdoor jacuzzi, the resort has an archery area, with a trainer to help you hit the bull’s eye. Nearby is a paintball area where friends can team up for a friendly game of warfare. Two-wheeled action can be found on the challenging bike path that winds around the property, and you don’t have to bring your own bike. Bike rentals include a pretty sweet tandem bike for couples who want to pedal together.

Team-building activities can be held at the obstacle course and on the grassy lawn that is also a favorite venue for garden weddings and receptions. Those courting Lady Luck can traipse over to the casino to play the tables or simply take in the live entertainment during weekend evenings. Guests who want to make their own music can take advantage of karaoke rooms big enough for the whole barkada. The resort also offers meeting venues for small groups or larger conferences. 

Kids who want to learn new crafts can check out the daily activities conducted by friendly resort staff.  







But you may not even want to leave your spacious room, where the crisp bed linen, firm mattress and soft pillows ensure a luxurious afternoon nap or a good night’s sleep. A soothing massage at the Zaphira Spa can add to the complete pampering experience.  

On top of the many activities available at the resort, there are special day tours to places of interest in nearby Antipolo, Tanay and Angono in partnership with a local tour operator. Guests will thus be able to experience the rich art and culture that the province of Rizal has to offer.

Thunderbird Resorts & Casinos-Rizal is located at Eastridge Avenue, Binangonan, Rizal. For reservations, email rizalreservations@thunderbird-asia.com or call 651-6888 or 0917-625-7868.
