For the past 3 years traveling around the Philippines, it has always been my goal to visit all 83 provinces in my home country. Very few provinces I’ve visited in the northern Luzon and good thing, I was invited by my Blogger colleague Bobby of Travel Tayo Sa PH to travel to Nueva Ecija.
One of the promising and known resort in Talavera, Nueva Ecija is the Crystal Waves Hotel and Resort. A 3-hr bus drive from Cubao during weekdays and perhaps lesser time on a weekend. This isn’t your ordinary pool resort with basic room accommodation and public swimming pools.
The resort doesn’t just have the basic amenities of a pool resort but they also have pavillions and a large event center that can accommodate hundreds of guests and many of the local artists had held concerts in the Crystal Waves Events Center.
Here are my Top 6 Fun Things To Do in Crystal Waves Hotel and Resort
For 150 Pesos, you will experience a rush of their 300-meter long zip line. I have a huge fear of heights and I had to back out right when I was going up the stairs. I insisted on the staff that I will take the lower zip line. Lol.
Watch our video:
2. Enjoy their 3 swimming pools
They have 1 Olympic size / Mickey Mouse figure swimming pool, 1 kiddie pool with fountain, and 1 wave pool.
3. The high and long slide
Unfortunately, I cannot do this that time when we’re here because my monthly thingy came and I cannot do any water activities so I just let my friends enjoyed it and take drone shots of them.
You have to climb up the stairs for about 5-storey high and slide down for about 5 to 7 secs.
4. Team building activities
During our stay, the staff of Mang Inasal was there for their staff team building. Lots of activities you can do here because the resort has a huge space for such activities and soon the resort will add more team building activities probably late this year such as scavenger hunt, add some ropes and old tires, etc.
5. Wall Climbing
For 200 Pesos, you will get to experience to climb up a 5-story wall with staff assisting you at the top and on the ground.
