Quick Getaway at Club Manila East

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:

Kiddie Pool

This 100% child-friendly pool includes a kiddie slide, fountains, and waterfalls. 

Kayak Area

Also known as Boating Area, I really enjoyed paddling here. :)

Shaded Pool

Want to have fun swimming while staying out of the sun? CME has a Shaded Pool for you. 

Adult Pool 

Includes a three-story giant slide. 

Lap Pool

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. 

Our surfing instructor Francis teaching us the basics

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 

Beach Volleyball

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 scoreboards 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-story building, you'll experience adrenaline rush!

  1. Wow, it's like an ultimate vacation, there's a wave pool, where you can surf, there's the boating pool, and zipline? I think I should plan a trip there, looks like I'm going to have my money's worth.

  2. Wow, Swimming trip sa panahon ngayon... Brrrr

  3. I always hear about this Club Manila East but I havent gotten the chance to visit. I think I am not in the mood for swimming in this cool weather. Maybe if they have thermal pool :)

  4. The pools look very inviting! Kaso parang mas maganda pag summer na it's kind of cold these days lol.

  5. I've heard of Club Manila East before but have never been there. Looks like my kids will enjoy it there. :)

  6. Wow. I didn't know that this resort has more to offer. I just always saw the pool pictures whenever my FaceBook friends update their getaways. I hope I can visit the place this coming summer and experiencing those fun activites!

    1. I really hope you'll visit CME this summer, Janine! :)

  7. Do they accept people kahit di member? Medyo confused lang kasi may word na 'Club'.
