Last week was a well spent long weekend for me in 3 resorts in Morong Bataan. From Manila going to the first destination we spent 4 and a half hour drive including stop over.
Day 1 in Morong, Bataan – Juness Beach Resort
Our company outing was held in this resort overnight. It has two swimming pools, beach access, team building area and plenty of rooms. But if you’re looking for an instagrammable beach this is not for you and your group. The sand is gray and the water is not so clear to take an underwater shot.
What I love about this resort is the accommodation. Rooms have enough space for maximum number of guests, clean bathroom and comfortable bed mattress.

After an overnight stay in Juness Beach Resort me and Brye went to our next destination while our officemates went back to Manila. Since we don’t have a car we just continue exploring Bataan through public transportation. The interval of mini buses takes 30 minutes to 1 hour so patience is a must if you will just DIY.
Day 2 in Morong, Bataan – Vista Venice Resorts
If you’re looking for a resort that can provide team building activities for your company or church outing, this is it my friend! With its 12-hectare area you will never get bored on this place because there are so many activities that you should try. Aside from 5 swimming pools, they also have wall climbing, rapelling, zip line (under construction), obstacle courses and many more! You should also visit their strawberry farm and feel like you’re in Baguio. Or have a 30 minutes therapy with small fishes on Dr. Fish Spa for only 50 pesos!
They can also bring you to near beaches such as West Nuk Beach and La Salle Beach via the resort’s shuttle. Just ask the front desk staff to assist you or contact them ahead to include it on your schedule.
