Best Places to Do Outdoor Teambuilding In Luzon, Philippines

Wanna go outdoor team building this summer? Let me share with you some of the venues I've visited and facilitated team building in Luzon. For those who have seen better venues in the Philippines, I welcome you to share those places with my readers by writing in the comment section.

If you're looking for a team building facilitator or very effective team building program, please check out my program by clicking HERE.

Here Goes...
Hotel La Corona de Pagsanjan
I've facilitated workshops there more than a dozen times. They have low and High Ropes facilities, two decent-sized swimming pools and very good customer service and offers tasty native dishes. I've also facilitated a couple of paintball games there. Only problem is that they are so in demand that if you plan to hold your team building there, you should make reservation well ahead of time.

Meralco Management & Leadership Development Center Foundation, Inc.
MMLDC has the best accommodation among the team building venues that I've been to. they have an excellent paintball set-up, low and high events, great function rooms, huge space for pretty much everything that you can think of. You know what comes with great quality... right... price.

Eugenio Lopez Center (Can't find the website) is another Lopez property situated atop the hill in Sumulong. Picture MMLDC on top of the hill and you'll get ELC.

Caliraya Recreation Center,
Another spacious resort that offer a lot of flexibility for your outdoor activities. They have some set-up for low events, there's rappelling as well, horse back riding and a host of others. Price is fair. Food choice is kind of limited and drinking of alcoholic beverages is not allowed. Rooms are not that good.

The Forest Club, Bae Laguna
It's a small resort that can probably house just up to two average sized groups at a time. They have a set-up that I used to facilitate amazing race type team building. they also have a nice warm pool. The function room is not that great. Accommodation is composed of Huts with very limited number of air conditioned rooms. Customer service is excellent.

Sitio Lucia Garden Resort, Bulacan

If you are in the Bulacan or Valenzuela Area and looking around there to go team building. This is the place to go to. They have a small setup there that you can use for your team building activity, plus they have a lot of swimming pools. The accommodation is OK. Food is average. I suggest that you go there on a weekday as it can get pretty crowded there on a weekend because it is open to walk in clients who want to enjoy their pools.

Chateau Royale Resort, Batangas

Chateau Royale has some set-up for low events, there's a paintball field that you can use. Function rooms are great. I've never slept there so I cannot say anything about the accommodation. Food is OK.

Lake Island Resort - Binangonan
This is a nice place located in Rizal. I've not gone there for a very long time so I can just hope that they were able to maintain its beauty. They offer a lot of amenities there. I think the ropes course is being offered by LUBID, I'm not sure. I remember that the food was really good.

Bakasyunan sa Baybay Dagat:

Bakasyunan is found in Iba, Zambales. It is now more easily accessible via SCTEX. They have a lot of rooms for big group, a lot of open spaces. Customer service is great. They go the extra mile to let you get what you need.

Matabungkay Resort and Hotel

I haven't gone here but I will be in the near future. I'll update this after I am able to facilitate a team building workshop here.


This is a great place to have not only your team building workshops but any training programs you can think of. They've got a great facility and the staff is very flexible and willing to help make your program a success. I strongly recommend this venue.

I know that there is a resort in Subic that also offers ropes course but I have not done any team building there and don't know the name of the resort. If you know it, please add it to my list.

As I said, if you know of other sites here in Luzon or in Cebu and Mindanao, please add it here. It would be good to discover other venues that team building facilitators like me can use.

    We've also done teambuilding at Sitio Lucia. Definitely the only place to go in Bulacan for teambuilding or trainings: good facilities, comfy accommodation, and super-friendly staff. Price is not bad either.

    I think their site is:


  7. Thank you Ed. This is helpful. You inspired me to share also my teambuilding venues (and stories). The first quarter of 2010 is a very hectic schedule for me. I will be having teambuilding sessions almost every week starting the second week of January. I will look into this list again and contact the venue owners when I have time.

    Thank you.


    P.S. My site has a new look. I invite you to see and leave your comments;

    We've had some pretty good venues for teambuilding for our companies such as:

    Corregidor - nothing beats amazing race types of teambuilding among historial ruins.

    thunderbird report in rizal - amazing view. very good rooms. food ok. this is more for indoor type of team building.

    punta de uian in san antonio, zambales. 20+ hectare resort. new rooms, good view, not so good food. nearby isolated island good for day trekking.
