Samba Bluewater Resort, Subic, Zambales

The summer is back and I wanted my mother and my father to have the time to relax at the beach. We discovered Samba Bluewater Resort while our family is having our summer getaway last year. We past along on that resort that can be easily seen along the way. There are a lot of beaches in Subic, Olongapo but the Samba Bluewater Resort was the one who caught my attention because there are people lined up and it dawned on me that good stuff is where the crowd is. samba-bluewater-resort-front-2048x2000

Fast forward this year, I told my officemate that our family will go to Subic and my officemate recommended Samba Blue Water Resort since it is where the biggest
Inflatable Island in Asia can be found – a partnership or maybe owned by one company. Truly, I can say we were meant to set foot in Samba Bluewater Resort.

Here is the reception area. The beach admission fee is good for 12 hours to stay and the swimming time is until 7PM only.

Samba Thrilla Aqua Park

The first thing we saw is the Samba Thrilla Aqua Park. As I have said, we thought that this is the same with Inflatable Island but Samba Thrilla Aqua Park is a land-based inflatable slide and also the tallest in the Philippines. Expect Torpedo Slide that is good for 4 feet and above and Kid’s Place Wading Pool here. Below is the rate inclusive of beach admission while the check-in guests are privileged of 20% discount.

Verdict

It is 3 1/2 hour away in Quezon City so getting here will not cost too much of your travel time. Also, you can bring your own food and drinks without a corkage fee.
