Fur parents rejoice as we found a pet-friendly resort in Bulacan! San Rafael River Adventure (SRRA) should be on your bucket list. With its proximity to Metro Manila, SRRA is perfect for summer adventure.
We’ve listed below some of the reasons to visit San Rafael River Adventure:
- Infinity Pool
- Floating Pool
- Children’s Pool
- Slide and Blob
- Wildlife Park
- River Cruise
- Ihaw-Ihaw Buffet
Bonus: There are lots of Instagram worthy spots around the resort like the Reflection Island.
Air-conditioned rooms / villas
We tried SRRA’s Glamping day tour experience. For only P2,000.00 (2 pax), we stayed in their Gamping Tent with mattress, lamp, and electric fan. Their glamping tent can accommodate up to four guests because of its size. What we also liked with their glamping is they provide a vault inside the tent so the guests are comfortable to roam around the resort.
For big families or groups, they have Glass Villa (maximum of 16 pax) or Glass Cabin (maximum of 14 pax) that ranges from Php 12,000 – Php 25,000.
SRRA offers various packages for couples, family, barkada, and even big groups. Guests can choose from the Kubo, Glamping and Villa. Honestly, their packages are a bit pricey but it’s already inclusive of the entrance fee, access to Infinity Pool and 1-hour kayak.
One good thing with SRRA is they don’t charge a corkage fee. Guests can bring food and drinks inside the resort. They can also lend griller upon request and availability. However, if you wanted to just enjoy, they offer a river cruise with lunch as well as their in-house restaurant.
Some of San Rafael River Adventure packages you can choose from:
- Day Tour (7:00AM – 6:00PM) – P750.00/pax minimum of 4 pax with Kubo Cottage, access to Infinity Pool and Floating Pool plus free 1 hour use of Kayak or Paddle Board
- Night Tour (7:00PM – 12:00MN) – P500.00/pax minimum of 4 pax with Kubo Cottage, access to Infinity Pool
- Glass Cottage (Day Tour / Night Tour) – P5,000.00 good for 4 pax/plus P1,000.00/extra pax | (Overnight) – P10,000.00 good for 4 pax/plus P1,500.00/extra pax
All guests are required to book prior to your trip. They recommend at least 1-2 weeks before your desired date because they usually get fully booked especially on weekends. Don’t worry when they say fully booked it’s just around 80 guests for the entire resort and you won’t even feel that they’re fully booked because they have wide space and lots of amenities for every guests.
How to go to San Rafael River Adventure
Ride a bus going to Baliuag. Baliuag Transit terminals are located in Cubao and Gracepark (2nd avenue).
Once you reached Baliuag town proper (Bayan), ride a tricycle (TCP Toda) or jeepney (via Pulo) and tell the driver to driver to drop you off at San Rafael Riger Adventure. (The tricycle and jeepney terminal are located across San Agustin Church, in Petron gas station)Advice: Tricycle fare in Baliuag is expensive. Make sure to allocate an extra budget. Fare might start from Php 200 (one way). We cannot provide exact fare as we hired a trcycle service because we brought our pets.
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts, beautiful photos, and great reviews of San Rafael River Adventure lately. I really want to go pay a visit. ? Was there a lot people during your stay?
They were actually fully booked when we went there (Saturday). 80pax. But we were surprised that despite they told us “fully booked”, the venue is not crowded at all ans you can still enjoy all the amenities freely.
Wow an affordable way to enjoy Summer. I was surprised that this is just at Bulacan. Will.keep this on my bucket list.
I’ve heard about San Rafael River Adventure before but still haven’t tried it, considering that my parents are from San Miguel, Bulacan. But definitely adding this to my bucketlist, siguro kapag lean season na. 🙂
Cool! Good thing that the place considers fur parents with their fur babies. I don’t own a pet now but I did in the past and having them during vacations and staycation is definitely a good thing!
Good thing the resort is pet-friendly and would allow furbabies. I also appreciate that they do have a vault for the safety of their guests. Looking forward that I can see this promising resort soon!
We went ther last 2017. Under construction pa yung ibang activities nila. But now, sobrang daming bago. I want to go back haha
The place is so nice. Now ko lang narinig to pero I am interested to go there. Thank you for sharing.
This resort looks awesome and glad it is pet-friendly. Still hard to find resorts that accepts pets as guests.
I love the glamping concept. If I get to visit Bulacan, which we pass when we go home to Cabanatuan, I would love to try this glamping.
I can’t remember the last time I visited Bulacan. When I was young, we used to visit Biak na Bato whenever we visit my great grandmother. I think it’s about time to explore Bulacan again! Thanks for the detailed review!
I never tried glamping yet, but with this blog, I just called my parents and set a glamp event for our reunion. We will definitely try this!
Good thing there are more pet-friendly resorts nowadays. Now our little furry friends can join in on the fun!
Wow, I love it! We need a family getaway place this summer. I just showed it to my husband. Is going back to manila just as easy as going there? I don’t mind paying 200 for tricycle, after all, there’s 5 of us riding it. Sana lang safe. 🙂
May mga naka-abang na trycycle outside the resto. Though may dumadaan na jeep going to Cogeo, madalas puno na kaya if marami naman kayo best to ride the trycycle na. 🙂 it’s safe naman, may mga zigzag lang at mataas kasi mountain side na, just remind the driver to be careful especially may kids kayo 🙂
This is one of such places I would always love to visit on a daily basics I love the photos of the Place the resort look so amazing.
When adventure meets the pleasure of a great and relaxing vacation between nature and beauty, the balance is perfect!
This looks like a gorgeous and peaceful location. It is awesome that you can also bring your furry friends along and know their experience will be as positive as yours!
This looks like such a great time! My family always loves being by the water, so I’m sure we’d have a blast here.
I love it when you find a pet friendly resort – there is nothing quite like being able to spend some time away from home with your pets so you know they are safe.
That place looks amazing! Such a peaceful and tranquil resort. Glad you had an amazing time!
I don’t have a pet, but such a resort would be a real paradise for all the pet lovers! The views are just wonderful. I’d love to visit that place one day, too! 🙂
This would be a great way to camp. I like that they have glamping tents
It looks and sounds like you two had a really great time. It also looks gorgeous!
Looks like you and the pups had a great time! I would love to take a trip like this. I love that they are pet friendly!!
It is such a resort that looks so relaxing for a day trip. The amenities are also very attractive. I am definitely interested in the Wildlife Park and River Cruise. I wished you had shared photos of the glass cabin and their buffet.
I’ve never taken my doggos on a trip before. This would be so much fun to bring them along.
That sounds like a really good adventure to do for couples. I have been to so many places in the Philippines but I haven’t been to Bulacan. Will add that to my places bucket list.
Let us know when you’re in the Philippines and if you want to travel around Bulacan, we’ll tour you in our province 🙂
That’s so cool that you had this kind of pet-friendly resort there. I am not sure I would want to be gone for so long from my dog either and great to know places which allow them. It looks beautiful there.
This was such a helpful article! And your puppies are too cute!
Uy balak namin magpunta dyan for a family staycation!!! Ang ganda!! Gusto ko sa glass cottage mag-stay!
Wow! Good for you that you found this resort. I am not a pet person though. 🙂
High quality resort with low quality staff. In May 2019 we made arrangement to get the Stilt Glass Cabin Overnight Tour. San Rafael said it was available on the date we requested and sent us confirmation that we did in fact have the cabin on the date requested. A few hours later San Rafael called up and told us we were not getting the cabin because they already booked it.
In Nov 2019 We made arrangements with San Rafael to get the Stilted Glass Cottage Overnight Tour. We were told it was available on said date and we got a confirmation message from San Rafael saying the cottage was ours on said date. The about 4 hours later San Rafael once again calls up and tells us they booked the room and we are not getting it
I expected better service from a high end resort such as San Rafael. But it looks like I expected too much.
Do they allow dogs to swim as well?
Hello Algie, they don’t allow dogs to swim. They don’t have pool for dogs yet. Hopefully in the future, they’ll consider.
