The Batangas Country Club was the venue of the team-building outing my company’s team participated in last year. According to a sign at the front gate, the Club styles itself as an international-class resort. Well, I personally don’t think the resort is that classy but there were foreign guests there during the time that we stayed. (Hopefully those guests weren’t scandalized too much during one team-building activity we conducted that had us scrambling all over the resort. Hehehe.)

The resort is located in Batangas City and is land-locked (so there’s no beach). The route going there is actually quite small and you’d probably get lost finding it unless you have a guide. Anyway, the resort has most of the amenities you’re looking for in a resort. It’s got nice and spacious air-conditioned cabins, gym equipment, function and conference rooms, various entertainment facilities like a KTV room and billiards tables, and of course a swimming pool. The highlight of the irregularly-shaped pool is a wooden suspension bridge (partially visible in the photo) spanning the main part of the pool. The resort advertises that they have broadband Internet available, but I couldn’t get to make it work with the netbook that I brought with me. (Yes, this is supposed to be a “vacation” of sorts, but I’m a certified Internet addict! )
