It was over four years ago when we first held a birthday party at the Cattleya Farm Resort. We’ve rented the place many times since and we’ve always had a great time (see older photos). There were only two pools then, pools number 1 and 2, and the package came with the use of the guest house. Well, actually, to refer to the facilities as pool numbers 1 and 2 might be misleading. Pool number 1 actually means a big swimming pool, a children’s pool and a jacuzzi. We’ve never rented pool number 2 since it’s smaller than pool number 1. We prefer spaciousness so we’ve always gone for pool number 1.
Cattleya Farm Resort has expanded with pools 3 and 4. Haven’t seen pool number 3 yet but, upon the invitation of the owner, we spent a glorious day on pool number 4 yesterday to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
Cattleya Farm Resort’s pool number 4 is designed with three levels. On the lowest level is a covered viewing deck which offers a panoramic view of Metro Manila and the hills of Rizal.
Too bad the next day was a school day. The way the lights around the pools were set up, I bet the place would be dreamy at night. And with a view of Metro Manila’s lights, that view deck would be the perfect place to down a few bottles of wine.
The whirlpool and the children’s pool are also on the lowest level.
A few steps up is the big pool. For some reason, those water spouts were a big hit among the kids.
Farther up the steps, on the third level are the shower rooms and toilets (separate facilities for men and ladies). The entrance to the shower room for ladies is visible on the top part of the photo below.
The picnic huts, one of which has an airconditioned mini-bedroom, are also on the top level.
If you intend to rent Cattleya Farm Resort’s pool number 4, I advise that you request the attendants to lock the gate that connects pool number 1 and 4. Some people have no respect for privacy. The party that rented pool number 1 yesterday actually crossed the gate earlier in the day to gape at… I don’t know whether it was to look at my teen-aged daughters or the pool. So, we had the gate locked to keep them out. After that problem was solved, we went ahead and spent a wonderful day.
