The Best Resorts Near Manila for Family Fun

R&R for the whole fam!

Finding the best place for a family outing can be a challenge. The solution? A getaway spot where everyone can enjoy their time and has a little bit of everything for everybody—and that means you need a lot of activities to choose from.

Monte Vista Beach Resort

Bignay 2, Sariaya, Quezon | Website

This is an ideal place when everyone in the family wants to take a break. It’s far from the noise of the city, but you’ll still have the complete amenities for a relaxing getaway. The vibe of the place is homey—like having your very own beachfront house—and there’s a lot of exciting activities to keep everyone entertained, too.

There’s a mini golf area, football field, giant chess board, billiards table, pool, and their own version of the love-lock bridge like the one in Paris. You can also rent a bike or go horseback-riding to go around the 30-hectare resort. For those who prefer a quiet trip, you can simply find a spot by the beach where you can enjoy a sundown family portrait or after-dinner digestifs.

Here, it’s all about good adventure, good food, and fresh sea breeze.

Green Canyon Eco Art Resort

Bamban, Pampanga | Website

Green Canyon offers a unique mix of nature and art—a perfect place when the family has someone who loves the outdoors and someone else who likes spending quiet time. It’s a nice hideout away from the concrete jungle where you can enjoy different activities like hiking, jogging, biking, or riding the ATV.

It might lack sand but the resort does have a wave pool that imitates the rise and fall of the sea. Foodies will also have a great time here with a delectable spread of choices in their restaurant.

Pico Sands Hotels

Pico de Loro Cove, Hamilo Coast, Barangay Papaya, Nasugbu, 4231 Batangas | Website

While it’s a hotel, the place has a relaxed vibe. There are lots of trees in the area and the contrasting view of the lagoon framed by the hotel with mountains behind it is just fantastic. It’s equipped with facilities for a leisurely stay like spa, fitness center, kid’s club, and even a game room. Make sure to get the room with the view of the lagoon. They have a beach area but there’s also something so relaxing about having everyone at the balcony (with a great view) and sharing some laughs.

Aliya Surf Camp & Resort

Baler, Aurora | Website

This place is for “aspiring surfers of all ages”—definitely a fun bonding activity for the whole family. If you’re not into surfing, though, you can still enjoy chilling out at the beach front (which has an acoustic bar) or taking a dip in the pool. Each room is decorated with a surfing vibe and the place has a real artsy feel!
