Amazing Weekend at Sinagtala Resort in Orani, Bataan | Travel Guide + Tips

Weekend trip to Sinagtala Resort in Orani, Bataan
Share this:

Sinagtala Farm Resort and Adventure Park is hands-down one of the best resorts you can find in Bataan. This 60-hectare mountain resort has lovely swimming pools, an adventure park and great views of the surrounding forest. It’s a perfect getaway for families, friends and even couples!

Hali and I went here on a weekend in March and we had a really good time. Although most people go here on a day tour, we opted for an overnight stay via Labuyo Villas and made sure to experience all the resort has to offer. I feel that their slogan “Where nature blends with adventure” perfectly sums up our experience here. There’s enough activities to keep us occupied and at the same time we felt relaxed as we were surrounded by a tropical rainforest, which is also home to various wildlife.

Here’s our guide to Sinagtala Farm Resort and Adventure Park!

How to get here

Sinagtala Resort is located within the Bataan National Park, at the slopes of Mount Natib, in Orani, Bataan. It’s about 2-3 hours away from Manila.

Address: Barangay Tala, Orani, Bataan 2112

Via commute:

  • From Cubao, board a bus en route to Balanga or Mariveles. Get off in Orani Crossing (1.5 hour, P170+).
  • Ride a tricycle to Sinagtala Resort (30 minutes, P150/way).

To get back, ask the resort’s guard to call a tricycle for you.

Things to do in Sinagtala Resort

Enjoy the infinity pools

There are 3 infinity pools in Sinagtala Resort, called Infinity Pool, Sky Pool and Lagoon Pool. Each pool has a different mountain view.

We like the Infinity Pool the best because it has the best mountain & city views. Also, for most of the afternoon that we were here, there were barely any people — I’m guessing that most people tend to stay at the Sky Pool, which is conveniently located in the Sinagtala Adventure Park. Speaking of which… we noticed that there were fewer guests here despite the fact that it was a weekend. We learned that the resort management prefers to limit the number of guests per day. I love that.

Anyway, here are some photos from the Infinity Pool.

Here’s the Lagoon Pool, which is the newest addition to the resort.

Overall, we enjoyed the cool swimming areas in Sinagtala Resort. We also appreciate that each pool has a different view and that there are lounge decks where we can lay down and relax after the swim.

By the way, the pools here are totally kid-friendly since there are small sections dedicated for kids.

Experience the rides at Sinagtala Adventure Park

The Sinagtala Adventure Park offers different sorts of rides: Sky Bridge, Sky Bike, Sky Swing and Zipline (children and adult). There are fees for each ride or you can get an all-ride package for P750 per person.

We first tried the Sky Bridge. This one is easy peasy but still enjoyable. You just have to cross a hanging bridge and then back.

Meanwhile, the Sky Bike is for the more adventurous. You need to pedal the bike and then hit the break once you’re at the other end of the rope. The bike is securely attached to the ropes so you don’t need to balance it. Hali and I were supposed to ride together but I chickened out at the last minute, so Hali went alone. He found it fun, but the ride back was rather challenging since the rope turns slightly upwards and requires harder pedaling.

I was looking forward to trying the Sky Swing because I thought it would be chill and I could get a really good view of the forest below, like in the famous swings in Bali. I was wrong. Hali and I went on a tandem seat and we were pulled above at an almost 90 degree angle before being let go. It was very, very scary and felt like when a roller coaster goes down. If you’re a thrill lover, you’ll like the Sky Swing.

There’s an adult zipline and a kiddie zipline. In the Adult Zipline, you’ll be secured in a harness with a small parachute on the back as you lay on your stomach and wait for the staff to release you. This ride is short and fun. Once you arrive at the other end, you’ll be assisted by the staff and a service vehicle will bring you right back to the adventure park.

The Cable Ride is the tamest ride in Sinagtala Adventure Park. You just have to lean back and sit while you cross to the other side of the mountain. The ride is slow and takes 15 minutes, so you have time to enjoy the view of the forest and surrounding areas from above.

Among all the rides, I like the Cable Ride the best while Hali’s is the Sky Zipline. It took us 1.5 hour to experience all these rides, with minimal queue. On busier days it might take you 1.5-2 hours to do everything. Also, there’s a photo service offered in every ride. You can pay for soft or hard copies of the pictures.

Aside from the ones mentioned here, you can also do paintball, river trek and waterfall trek.

Relax

Sinagtala Resort offers a lot of cottages, view decks and lounge beds if you just want to relax or enjoy the view.

Explore the resort grounds

There are other places you can check out at Sinagtala resort. There’s an events hall, chapel and open activity field used for football and team buildings. There’s a fish pond and open spaces where you can see sheeps, horses and a pony named Ponyang.

Hali and I initially explored via golf cart. 🙂 Hali says this is the best part of our day, although we had to give it up soon since Hali wasn’t used to it and couldn’t restart the engine after our first stop.

Where to eat

Bringing of food & drinks is allowed in Sinagtala Resort. It also has 2 in-house restaurants: Sinagtala Cafe and Tampay Cafe.

We had our breakfast and dinner at Sinagtala Cafe. We love the look and ambiance of the cafe, but we find that the food needs improvement. Their breakfast set was just acceptable (we had tapsilog and cornsilog), the serving was small for me. For dinner, we had nachos, crispy pork binagoongan and pinaputok na tilapia. We like the nachos and crispy pork binagoongan, but the tilapia was tasteless and didn’t seem that fresh. So for me, their food is a hit or miss.

Overnight stay: Accommodations

Overnight accommodations in Sinagtala Resort are independently owned and operated by the residents living in this resort village, which means you need to contact each property separately.

Labuyo Villas

We highly recommend staying at Labuyo Villas. Labuyo Villas offers comfortable accommodation perfect for families, friends or large groups of people.
