Sierra Madre Resort and Country Club Tanay Rizal

Our First Year Wedding Anniversary is fast approaching and since it will fall on Holy Week, I'm looking for a place to stay where in we could relax and have some sort of a retreat. I know everybody goes to Boracay and other famous destinations this season but we wanted to stay to a more serene and quiet place on Holy Week, we don't want to do any activities we just need to be together and reflect to respect the Holy Week Traditions. We are not used to go out during these days for the reason that our family is very traditional but it's our anniversary so we still decided to go.

I remember a place in Tanay Rizal that we usually see when we pass by the zigzag roads. It's the Sierra Madre Country Club in Tanay Rizal. It is literally in the Sierra Madre Mountains build on the top of the mountains having a spectacular view of the mountain range. I didn't know that they have accommodations there until my husband confirm to me that they allow overnight stay there. It was a perfect getaway for us this Holy Week simply because there's no traffic on our way there coz we will be passing by a mountain range zigzag roads going to Sierra Madre, it's not the main road so I guess I can expect lesser traffic. The area is cold coz it is elevated it's a perfect place to chill out and the place's ambiance is soothing with a great view of the Sierra Madre Mountains.

We then have an ocular last week to see the amenities. I took some pictures to share with you in case you want to see the place too.


This hanging bridge is one of the nicest view in Sierra Madre Country Club, there are some family rooms that are facing the same view which is a very nice room to occupy.


Gazeebo


Patio or Walkway


There's another bridge going to the gazeebo
This horse was so camera shy he hid his head in the tree when he saw me that I'm taking pictures...hehe...cutie...by the way they also have a horse back riding included in their amenities in case you wanna try.


Pine Trees & the Sun, this only proves that the climate is cold coz there are Pine Trees.


This is the Spring Valley Pool I'm just not sure if this came from a Spring but there are 2 pools here. There's also an accommodation near the pool. The area is so big and the pool is located downhill, if ever you would want to swim you will have to pass through several staircase or you can bring your car down there but the road is too steep and tight.


This is the bridge to the Ecumenical Worship Chapel, I think this is where they celebrate the Mass. When you walk up to the left there's a Station of the Cross up the mountain and when you go to the right there's a Waterfalls.

This is the view from the Pool, there are lots of activities that you can do here. Good for team buildings, conference and retreats. There are obstacle course, firing range, children's playground, jungle trek and a lot more activities that you can enjoy.

Hi Sis..Yup the place is so nice, mostly you will see a mountain range sceneries.Sorry I forgot to take pictures of the room,Ive only seen the standard room and its kinda big with twin beds and bathroom with no Aircon coz its cold there imagine it as a typical standard room in a resort but I think the room that's overlooking the mountain is much better it's elevated with a great view of sunrise & I think it's their family rooms so its bigger.
