I spent one weekend with my younger siblings in Club Manila East, Taytay, Rizal. Though the place is only a few minutes away from our home, I haven't been there before.
Club Manila East, opened in 1999, is a one-stop resort located in Rizal with amenities not only for swimming but also for surfing, zipline, beach volleyball, and even kayaking. Club Manila East is also the perfect venue for events like parties and other activities like seminars, team-building and conferences.

As soon as we arrived, we were brought to our Cabana. Our cabana has its own tables, chair, mini kitchen counter, fan, toilet and shower room. It can accommodate 10-15 persons.
Pools and Other Amenities
Here are some of the amenities that you can enjoy in Club Manila East:
This 100% child-friendly pool includes a kiddie slide, fountains and waterfalls.
Also known as Boating Area, I really enjoyed paddling here. :)
Want to have fun swimming while staying out of the sun? CME has a Shaded Pool for you.
Includes a three-storey giant slide.
25-meter lap pool for swimming programs and water sports training.
2 of main attractions in Club Manila East are the wavepools called Beachwaves and Oceanwaves, where can also learn to surf!
In partnership with PSA or Philippines Surfing Academy, you will be taught the basics of surfing by a certified surfing instructor. I was given basic surfing lessons during our visit, and I was quite nervous since I haven't tried it before.

The instructors were quite hands-on and would guide you on how to balance, how to keep safe, and many more. What's the verdict? Well, let's say that there are things I can't do, no matter how hard I try. :P
Want to play v-ball in the sand without having to travel far? You can do that in CME! They've just finished this beach volleyball court with fine sand, complete with score boards and referee stand. It was built according to competition standards for sports competitions or even just for fun. :)
Zipline the whole resort through CME Fly! With the length of 350 meters and the height of a 6-storey building, you'll experience adrenaline rush!
