Check This Instagrammable Team Building Venue in Rizal With Unobstructed View of Laguna de Bay

Looking for company outing locations near Manila? Forget the crowded resorts of Pansol in Laguna. Give Lily Vacation Farmhouse in Rizal a try, one of the most promising team building venues near Manila I super duper recommend. Last weekend, I decided to skip a day of work from my online tasks to join a group of bloggers to spend overnight at this Instagrammable accommodation. And yes, I never regretted my decision.

As a travel blogger who have slept in so many accommodations from hostels to luxury hotels, I somehow  developed high standards when it comes to choosing a place to stay for getaway purposes. Lily Vacation Farmhouse exceeded most of my expectations. Only three hours away from the metro, Lily's is worth every second of travelling to get there. From Starmall Shaw, we took an FX to reach Tanay for two hours and another one hour to reach Jala Jala.  The way to Tanay did not impress me at all but the way to Jala Jala was a delight. I left Manila a bit groggy but the sights along Jala Jala's roads kept my eyes wide open! Those tall acacia trees that are lined up both sides  are such a relief to see. Not only that, the biggest ones spread their branches and creating a roof under the road. The best part is seeing a small farm of sunflowers in full bloom!

Introduction to Lily Vacation Farmhouse   
Lily Vacation Farmhouse is a family business named from the owner's mother-in-law. It is less than 2 years old but I am hands down to its efficiency from the physical attributes to the warm service we received. 

I love the setting of Lily Vacation Farmhouse. Surrounded by white wooden fence, everything is covered with green grass except the pathway, the swimming pool and the basketball court. Like Jala Jala's roads, Lily Vacation Farmhouse is also home to some of the most sturdy acacia trees I have ever seen! There are petite mango trees from a distance as well and other types of trees that this lady in me who loves nature so much felt like a ton of stress she feels inside was gone in an instant. 

I quickly put my bag inside one of the bungalow's three connecting rooms. After making sure my belongings are safe, I went outside only to be surprised more. The view of Laguna de bay providing an undulating silhouette of Mount Banahaw and Mount Makiling almost swept me away. Not to mention the swimming pool that is just a few steps away from me.

Lily's target market are companies looking for places to do team building activities near Manila. It is actually also open to big families that can afford the price. I was told that Lily's Vacation Farmouse can accommodate up to 25 persons. So if you plan to go here with your partner, you'll have to pay for the rate of the whole place and not just for the room where you'll spend a night.

The birds chirping in the morning were my alarm clock. I woke up with my ears receiving soft melodies from these gentle creatures that really made my stay here extra special. I was able to catch the sunrise super early in the morning because I was the first one to fell asleep. Lily Vacation Farmhouse is one of the best events place near Manila for any special occasions or as a team building venue.
