Everyone needs a break. As one popular advertisement goes, “Have a break, have a K—k-t”. So, the Finance and Accounting Department had a #teamrampa #teambuilding last June 24 – 27, 2016 to reward ourselves and have a break from work.

Tribu de Matabungkay Resort was not our first choice because our original plan was to have it in Puerto Galera. But because the rainy season has already started and we were concerned about safety (exaj!) and possible delays due to bad weather, we looked for an alternative. On our search for the best yet affordable summer getaway during the rainy season, my colleague Richard came across Tribu De Matabungkay. The rest was history…narrated in this blog post.

Tribu De Matabungkay is a private resort located at Lian, Batangas, a mere 2-hour drive from Manila. The name of the resort started in Tribu because the resort cottages were constructed from a mix of bamboos and wood—similar to what indigenous “tribes” use. The rooms were clean and quite okay but the shower in our room was not working. The resort had a swimming pool, billiards table and a basketball court you could use during your stay here.

What’s nice about our stay here was that we were allowed to cook whatever we wanted for a minimal fee of Php 200.00. Luckily, we were the only group booked at that time and so we had the entire resort to ourselves.

Here’s are some photos of the resort:

We spent Php 7,600 for a 3 days and 2 nights stay in a Barkada room (2 queen size beds good for a maximum of 4 pax). No toiletries and towels were provided so better bring your own. No meals are included in the price as well but there are nearby stores and a public market nearby. Tribu de Matabungkay is by no means a high-end resort but it is definitely worth your bucks. It is an affordable place to chill or relax over the weekend.

Tribu De Matabungkay is always open.
