Thunderbird Resort- Rizal

March is one my favorite month because this month we will celebrate our 10th year anniversary :) and we decided to celebrate it at Thunderbird Casino & Resort-Rizal we celebrate it last March 9 &10 but actually our anniversary is March 19 we just celebrate it advance on it's actual date and because it was just an hour away in the metro and in a reasonable price the superior room we got is spacious and clean , the hotel staff are very accommodating they see to it that we had a wonderful stay.




SERVICE & STAFF:
From front desk they welcomed us with warm greetings the check in time is 2:00 but we arrived earlier and allow us to check-in about 1:20 the room boy accompanied  us in our room bring our luggage. The guard, house keepers are so welcoming they always greeted us ''good afternoon mam, sir'' which what we really like. there are some glitches like what happen to the Koi restaurant but the receptionist apologize to us which is forgiven.

THE ROOM:
 The room is spacious it supposed to be two queen beds but i request to change it into king size bed instead, it has mini ref and a snack bar. our room is facing the car park but we still had a great view at night. the bathroom  are clean and spacious too with complete set of toiletries and towel. I love the bed since it was neat, soft and clean and it had 5 pillows which b & i really like.

THE FOOD: 
Thunder bird has three restaurant The Koi Restaurant, Pool Bar and Cabana Bar (which we haven't try) we had this snack at Pool Bar and i love the food the chef is the one who prepared the food which is really great.
But we were disappointed at Koi Restaurant there's is no slot available when we arrive there it was 8:00 and the restaurant is still full  the receptionist asked us if it is okay if we will just order there and the food will be deliver at pool bar since there's is no available table for us. We agree to that but i saw that a family finished already and there's available table so i insisted to eat there, we were sit there for 20 minutes waiting for someone giving us a menu to my surprise we were the one who approached the receptionist and she's who will take the order from us :/ imagine she keep us waited eh she's the one who will take the order naman and not the waiter who seems so busy but not i estimate the there's 30 people inside the restaurant compared it to the fast food chain and you will see the different i think they can manage that number of people, the food is not presentable the food that my mom cooked is much better :/ and guess what our bill is 1000 :O for that kind of food a sweet and sour and a tempura (see the photos below).
But Breakfast buffet which is in Koi Restaurant also, has more organize compare to their sit down dinner set up.

THE SPA: 
I love Zaphira Signature Massage i really love massage and i'm glad that Thunderbird had this Spa, read more about Zaphira Spa.

THE SWIMMING POOL & JACUZZI:
We love the swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi, the pool is crowded from 4:00-6:00,  b and i decided to swim at 5:00 it's not crowded only few bunch group of friends and family are there we love dipping in outdoor Jacuzzi i spend most of the time there. Actually the pool is an Infinity pool but it doesn't look like maybe because of it shape.

Zaphira Spa

Part of our Travel Bucket list is to try signature spa in a specific place like what we did before in sonya's garden.

This time we tried Signature Zaphira Massage at Thunderbird Resort-Rizal, Zaphira Spa. we choose to have massage outdoor which is very relaxing and the sound of waterfall makes us feel safe and sound.
First you have to book an appointment at hotel front desk which b and i almost forgot we got the 12 midnight slot since it was fully booked they let us choose whether to have an in-room massage or done it outside they have a secluded area for massage with white drapes and waterfalls backdrop it also have mini pond.

We highly recommended this place the therapist are very accommodating the pressure of massage is exactly what i really like it's not hard neither soft, we rate them 10/10 the price worth it and almost exceeded our expectation they deserve a reasonable tip. It makes us decided to try zaphira spa at Thunderbird Resort Poro Point.
