Weekend Day Trip: Sierra Madre Hotel and Resort in Tanay

An easy weekend breather is possible even with a minimal budget in hand - thanks to Sierra Madre Hotel and Resort in Tanay, Rizal. It's not your luxury resort with high-end amenities, but its surroundings are enough to bring sanity back to your senses.


Instead of plying the busy expressways, take the road less traveled in the East. From Cubao, board a jeep to Cogeo Gate 2 and alight at the market. Ask where the jeepneys for Sampaloc, Tanay are (it's a 2-minute walk from the busy intersection).

Board the jeepney and pay (more or less) PHP 54. The trip will take an hour.

Ask the driver to drop you at Sierra Madre Resort. The resort is located just along the tranquil highway of Tanay, Rizal.

To go back to Cubao, wait for jeepneys along the highway where you got off. Jeepneys pass by every 25-40 minutes, and are only available until 3 or 4 in the afternoon.


Relax and have fun. Give yourselves a break. Have a hearty barbecue session by the pool or grill some onions and burgers for your picnic. Have a cup of coffee by the mountains, or go crazy with photography. Camping can be exciting too - the resort has special rates for this.

If you want to get wild, brave their zip line for a minimal fee of PHP 100 or 200/pax (rates below). Horses are also present in the area; better ask their staff if these are for rent. There is also a path towards the bottom part of the resort that is accessible by a golf cart. I believe more outdoor activities can be done there.

If you are into shooting, a firing range is available for use (bring your own firearms and ammo).
