For your next getaway, avoid the big spending and airport anxiety that comes with a distant destination. Instead, pack a weekender bag and head just outside the Metro for a staycation that is easy to plan and easy to get to. Whether you’re looking for a solo trip to recharge yourself, a romantic getaway with someone special, or a fun excursion with the crew, Antipolo has a lot to offer. Here are a few of our favorite spots in the area.
The HiveRate: Starts at P1,018 per night
The Hive is technically located in Taytay, which is at the foot of the Antipolo hills, but it is worth mentioning on this list. If you are looking for that luxe condo life, but aren’t ready to break the bank, this is the perfect staycation. The residential midrise boasts refreshing pools and stunning views of the city.
Timberland HeightsRate: Starts at P3,450 per night
Get back to nature at Timberland Heights. Set in a breathtaking mountainscape untouched by urban decay, this mountain resort offers rooms—and even entire houses—for rent. A weekend of breathing in the clean, crisp air while surrounded by greenery will undoubtedly raise your spirits. This getaway is especially favored by athletes looking for a comfortable space to swim, bike, and run.
Loreland Farm ResortRate: Starts at P3,428 per night
This sprawling resort offers a variety of accommodations to fit your needs—from budget-friendly dormitories to luxe villas, and everything in between. Additionally, their facilities include kid-friendly waterparks, meeting and events halls, gardens, and lounge pools. It’s a great place for big groups of friends, or a family trip.
Villa ElishaRate: P18,000 per night, good for 15 guests
This forest hideaway is a unique way to experience Antipolo. Tucked away in the Phillip's Sanctuary Eco-resort, this house-for-rent offers privacy unlike any other. With a stunning view of the Sierra Mountain range, this resort can accommodate up to 15 people in its three bedrooms and loft area. If you're feeling active, you can experience the breathtaking hiking paths nearby. The best part? This location has spotty cellphone signal, so you'll be forced to unplug from the real world.
Luljetta’s Garden SuitesRate: Starts at P4,000 per night
This idyllic staycation spot is for those interested in recuperating. Established in 2016, this resort offers health and wellness services set in a verdant landscape surrounded by mountains. Their holistic approach to health includes spa services and locally-sourced food. It is possible to make a day trip out of an excursion to Luljetta’s. However, true to their mission to balm both body and soul, the rooms here are just as serene (and Instagram-worthy) as the rest of the resort. This staycation is best experienced with a loved one or a couple of close friends.
Maniquiz Resort - One AntonioRate: Starts at P2,600 per night
Located in Tanay, just beyond Antipolo, this is the perfect place to set up a weekend base as you explore what Rizal has to offer. Located near natural gems such as Daranak Falls, Masungi Georeserve, and several worth hikes, you don't have to spend all your time at the resort. But we wouldn't blame you if you did. Its comfortable rooms, refreshing pool, crisp mountain air, and lush green setting make for a perfectly satisfying break from the city.
Bosay ResortRate: Starts at P3,821 per night
Bosay is a Waray-Waray term that means “waterfalls.” So, it’s no surprise that this resort boasts not one, but 10, water features—including kid-friendly pools, an Olympic-sized lap pool, a private jacuzzi, a wave pool, and more. Bookmark this spot for those sweltering summer months.
Altaroca Mountain ResortRate: Starts at P2,477 per night
For a no-fuss weekend away, book a stay at Altaroca Mountain Resort. It provides everything you want from an ideal vacation, including outdoor activities and a reliably good restaurant. The rooms here range from a 10-person dormitory to a sprawling suite—meaning staying here can fit every kind of budget.
Villa Jhoana ResortRate: Starts at P1,134 per night
This resort is located in Angono, just outside Antipolo. To stay here means essentially residing in a beautiful mansion with an equally gorgeous pool fitted with multiple slides. Plus, if you make a reservation during the rainy season, you can accommodate up to eight people for just over P600 per head.
Ocean & Mountain Breeze Camp ResortRate: P15,000 per night, good for 30 guests
Planning a trip for a big group? Ocean & Mountain Breeze Camp Resort is the place for you. Set on 3,000 square meters of tree-lined land, this resort blends relaxation and adventure. It is located in the province of Real, Quezon. However, it remains a doable two-hour drive from Metro Manila. This means you can easily enjoy what Antipolo has to offer as you drive to or from the resort. So, if you are looking for quality accommodations that are affordable, safe, fun—and can host thirty people or more—this is it!
