November 26-27, 2011
It was the last weekend of November, we went to Bakasyunan Resort in Tanay, Rizal which was a getaway passed Antipolo and near Daranak Falls; and is situated at the highlands of Rizal near Mt. Sembrano. The air was cool and fresh, and an activity for the weekend awaits us.
There are two Bakasyunan Resorts owned by the same company. One is in Zambales and this one is in Tanay, Rizal. The resort is a 3-hour drive away from Metro Manila on a normal traffic via Manila East road and is about 54 kilometers away from Manila. This facility was previously a mansion that was sold and turned by the company as a resort. We were here last year for a company-sponsored event.

The area is large and the resort can be used as a wedding venue due to the scenery around or as a family/company getaway due to the large area and facilities.
It a has a zip line, obstacle course, mudslide, KTV, ATV rental, and pool overlooking Laguna Lake. From here you can view the grandeur of Laguna de Bay and the serene Mt. Sembrano and Mt. Tagapo from afar.
