The Water Park of Antel Grand Village Clubhouse

For this Lenten season, we skipped the out-of-town getaway for we opted to stay indoors. But we are a family who loves to swim, so we can’t stop ourselves from escaping the scorching heat of summer. We were given a complimentary ticket to the Water Park of Antel Grand Village Clubhouse by my brother who purchased a property there. So on Black Saturday, we went there to enjoy a whole day water fun.

Antel Grand Village

I had been to several subdivisions in various parts of Cavite during our tripping in search of a house and lot, and as I observed, Antel Grand Village is the grandest when in terms of recreation. It is an exclusive subdivision covering a total land area of 140 hectares and is divided into seven villages. As we roamed around, I was overwhelmed to see beautiful houses in various style and color. It was a serene community with safe environment as it is being manned for 24-hour security.

We also explored their clubhouse which features the Water Park, Gym, Ballroom, Day Care, Game Room, Aerobics Area and Coffee Shop. For us, the tranquil feel of the swimming pools especially the Beach Pool beckoned a comeback, a one-day family getaway to be exact.

Water Park

The Water Park consists of 9 gazebos and 7 interconnected swimming pools: Lap pool, Beach Sand Pool with 2 slides, Children’s Pool, Fountain pool, Activity Game Pool, Party Pool, Spa Pool with 4 Message Beds and the Lap Pool.

it is so relaxing to idle away the time in the sunken benches

Food and drinks are allowed inside the Water Park so we bought our complete meal from rice, viands, fruits and water.

The Fee

Since we had complimentary ticket for the pool entrance we only paid for the gazebo. We arrived almost 10:00 am, unfortunately, there are no available Sunbrella (the cheapest gazebo) anymore. But lucky for us, we got the last Luxu Tent (netted) or else we have nothing to place our stuff.

The Luxu tent was enough for small to medium-size family. It has two soft-cushioned benches (perfect for a short nap) and a long center table. It is covered entirely with a net for protection against pesky flies and other insects. It was near the Beach Pool area.

After fixing our things we changed into swim wears and initially took shower to designated shower area. It was a downcast morning, but no matter how gloomy the weather is, we dashed excitedly towards the first pool, the Beach Pool.

The Beach Pool

This man-made white sand beach is dotted with palm trees giving you an island tropical feel. After an enjoyable swim, it’s nice to lay your backs in the beach lounger chair and relax. Aside from the pool the kids will surely love getting back and forth to the two water slides.

Party Pool

As water babies, we tried to swim to all the pools, but we stayed most of the day in the Party Pool. The pool area was wide so we enjoyed wading on the water. It has an adjoining kiddie pool where we transferred from Party Pool to enjoy floating in our backs. It has beach lounger chairs immersing on water where we stayed momentarily after swimming on Lap Pool. It has also a sunken bar where you can eat snack and sip cool refreshing drinks.

Pool Slides

The kids will surely love to frolic on the two slides and enjoy basking on sunshine. Our daughter Shen laughed with sheer delight as she slid several times, feeling like she was a child again.

Activity Game Pool

Kids and kids at heart will have a good time in the Activity Game Pool for it offers a water facility for creative games.

Kiddie Pool

It’s time for the kids to learn more to swim in the Kiddie Pool with parents spending quality time with them. It maybe for kids only to enjoy, but for the adult like us, we had an enormous fun transferring from the Party Pool to the Kiddie Pool if there are no kids around. Hahaha!

Lap Pool

The entire size of the Lap Pool is 25 meters long which is said to be half the size of the Olympic Pool. It was fun to do the swim laps but it was tiring especially for us because we are not professional swimmers.

for the swimming enthusiast the Lap Pool is for you! This is for Pao, a swimmer since three years old …

Massage Pool Beds

These four massage beds are submerged on the water. It has water jets that will massage you as you lie on the bed. So if you are already tired of spending time to swim the whole day, spare some minutes to relax here. My hubby did!

Our comments:

With its location in an exclusive subdivision, the Water Park is an ideal place for a family getaway because it is not crowded. The water isn’t formulated heavily with chlorine so it is so nice to swim under the water with eyes widely open. All pools are being cleaned on Mondays so expect that the water is clean and clear.
