Vista Venice Resort - Morong, Bataan

The team had the first team building for the year 2011.

We invited Ed Chan, the ex-team lead of the team, and Ian from our Dev team.

This is the second time we venture out in the North side of Luzon, well for the past years we are always on the south...


We found this place Vista Venice, over the web...
And immediately liked the facilities they have.

Wall Climbing...
Rapelling...
Zip Line...
Best for team building activities...

As we enter the resort, we are all wandering, and asking each other...where's the beach? We all thought that the resort is just a few meters away from the beach. But sad to say, the beach is more than a kilometer away from the resort, and you need to pay additional 200 pesos each for the entrance.

We are a bit disappointed, since what we really love is to dip on the beach and enjoy the sand and the waves.

Since we don't have a choice, the team just check-in and rest for a while.

Before the sun goes bye bye, we headed to their adventure site... (yay, im so excited!)

We are so amazed on how tall there wall climbing/rapelling facility is...
For just 250 pesos, you can try all of the 3 adventures: Wall Climbing, Rapelling, Ziplining...

First, we all tried the wall climbing...
Only 3 out of 10 who tried this was able to finish it up to the top (well, i'm one of the 3... ^_^)

 Next is the Zip Line...
The distance between the starting point up to the end point is not that far, but the speed it takes was the one makes my heart beats fast!

 And the last is the Rapelling...
I'm a bit nervous to try this one, since I need to control my weight going down the rope. It's in my hands to control the rope for me to be able to go down. And one missed movement will cost my life....

After the super tiring yet super fun adventure, we all headed to a sumptuous dinner.
Vista Venice food is great, unlike the other resorts that only provides food just for the guess to have something to eat. They serve very delicious food!!... i love their pancit canton, beef, chicken...i can't remember the other entree. Though food service is a bit lame, because it took us an hour before we are able to have our dinner...

After the sumptuous meal, we all headed to the pool. The water is a bit cold since we are at the top of the mountain, yet the temperature eventually subsided once you get into it...

They are currently renovating the place, and adding spa services on their list. They said that when you avail their spa you can gain access to their infinity pool free of charge.
All in all our experience to this resort is the best...
Good Service...
Nice staff...
Nice place...

 
If you'd like to take the adventure, delicious food, and very calm and quiet place.
