La Vista Pansol Resort Team Outing
Our team decided to have a get together outing for all that have been part of the group / company, simply to bond and have fun! Each of us contributed PHP 800 which is already included of resort entrance fee, accommodation, transportation, food and beverages.
Since we’re on a tight budget we ended up in Pansol, Laguna. Pansol is known for private / public pool, hot spring and resort that accommodates big and small groups for gathering, overnight, outing, and team building. La Vista Pansol Resort is nestled between the Laguna Lake and Mount Makiling, that has the relaxing back to nature ambiance.
We hired a jeep that took us from Makati to the resort and took us back to Makati the next day. There are also bus-lines that will take you to Pansol Laguna, you can ride HM Transport bus at Cubao Terminal or Greenstar Express bus at LRT Buendia.

We arrived at the resort pass 12:00 PM, we ate our packed lunch first at the holding area since we can’t check in to our room yet. Afterwards, we prepared the foods and everything that we will be needing for our dinner and socials later. Each of us has its own task and must help each other, do your task or else!
It was hot and humid. Most of us didn’t have enough sleep yet, so yung iba naiirita na pero go pa din. We’re all here for fun! 🙂
Moving on, we checked in our bags to our room and moved some things and food and beverages in the hut that we reserved (near the pool). Dun na din kami nag-ihaw and nagluto ng ibang pagkain! Because we’re on a tight budget, we only rented one dormitory room that could accommodate all of us. It’s a big room with 16 beds, 2 toilet and 2 shower room and 2 sink.
Afterwards, we went to the La Vista Wet N’ Wild area.
I like it! There are slides, and the water is warm! Lamigin kasi ako kaya mas gusto ko yung hindi malamig ang tubig! 🙂
Some of my office mates took a dip in the pool, already. I don’t want to join them yet because I want to take some pictures first of the surrounding, people and us, of course! 🙂
I can’t resist anymore, I took a dip in the pool afterwards. Then we went slide! I love it when there’s a slide in the pool!
Afterwards, kainan na! We had chicken barbecue, liempo, grilled tilapia, salted egg, fruits (mango and watermelon), sandwhich and chips. Of course, papahuli pa ba ang liquor – tequila, vodka and beer! 🙂
Time check, 6:00 PM! I was awake for 26 hours already! 🙂
After kain, simulan na ang tagay! Ang init sa tyan ng tequila! After two rounds, I asked my office mate na mag-swimming ulit kami, para maka-pass din sa tagay! 🙂
Slide ulit! Then we played some games, yung umiikot habang hawak kamay then itataas ung paa – ang sarap and saya pala nun! Eto na ata ang pinakamahabang pool time ko, kasi di masyado malamig yung tubig! Plus there’s a live band performing in front of the pool. We’re having so much fun and going crazy. Wet n’ wild! 🙂
At 10:00 PM, we went back to our cottage, nakakagutom! I ate then afterwards I decided to wash up! I just want to chill out and don’t want to take a swim anymore. So I went back to our room and took a shower.
Afterwards, I went back to our cottage. We continued drinking the remaining shots of tequila then we had beer! 🙂
My office mate brought her underwater cam, kainis naka-pagshower na ako! Di tuloy ako nakasama sa picture. People in the pool are going crazy and dumami tao sa pool and it’s already 11:30 PM. 🙂
Since most of my office mates were in the pool, and I didn’t have much things to do than drink, we just took some pictures.
I asked my office mate to look for a videoke machine. We went to the reception area and the receptionist lead us to the videoke area located at the other part of the resort, more private and less noise.
We didn’t have much coins in our pocket so we went back to our room to get some. When I finished my song, one of the occupants nearby went out and asked us if we can just have our karaoke sessions in the morning. So we respectfully stopped and went to the reception area to ask if there’s a time limit for the videoke machine. When we’re about to go, one of the occupants on the other side told us that they wanted to sing to. This is place for fun and noise, so if you want to take some rest go to Tagaytay and hotel for you to have a serene and peaceful night.We asked the receptionist and told us that there’s no limit for the karaoke machine, so we brought along our other office mates with us and went back to the karaoke area and continued our felt-short jamming awhile ago.
Kami na ang nang-iinis sa occupant! We were also guests here, so she doesn’t have the right to stop us from enjoying! Let’s just have fun! By the way, the occupant didn’t go out of her room anymore! Wala na syang laban, natulog na! 🙂
At around 2:30 AM, I fell asleep at the table! Di ko na kinaya, nakatulog na ako! After awhile, me and my office mates went back to our room, then slept! Three of my office-mate were left in the karaoke area and continued their karaoke until 4:30 AM!
Good Morning La Vista. At 7:00 AM, most are already awake! Grabe 3 – 4 hours sleep lang? I’m still sleepy but we need to get up by 8:00 AM since we need to check out by 9:00 AM. I joined my office mates who were in the lobby, drinking coffee.
At 9:00 AM, we left La Vista Pansol and had our breakfast on our way!
The resort has a lot of attractions to offer like basic pool, wet n’ wild, zip line, tree house, animal park, obstacle course to name a few. But the pool, slide and videoke are already enough for me to enjoy this outing. This is not for relaxation and de-stressing, it is a place for fun, party and noise. Though the place is so-so and usual, I still enjoyed this outing a lot, happier than the last time.
