Subic, Zambales: Get Wet and Wild at Whiterock Beach Hotel & Water Park
Looking for a place to cool off after exploring Subic Bay, Zambales? Check out Whiterock Beach Hotel and Water Park, a seven-hectare resort with cream-colored beaches, sprawling lawns, leisure facilities and aqua-themed amenities. Only two hours drive by private vehicle from Metro Manila via the SCTEX highway, the resort is located in Subic, the town just north of Olongapo City (not to be confused with Subic Bay Freeport Zone). The 221-room resort offers a range of accommodation. A new three-story wing has 21 deluxe international suites, furnished with contemporary comforts such as flat-screen TVs and jacuzzis. The tropical villas, on the other hand, provides a more festive Mediterranean take with cottages clustered around grassy courtyards, each replete with their own outdoor whirlpool and barbecue area.
Around the resort, a wide range of thrills and spills await. Guests can get competitive with team sports such as beach volleyball and soccer, or opt for zip lines that give a bird’s eye view of the resort. Besides outdoor activities, Whiterock offers indoor entertainment at the Family Fun Center that includes 10 bowling lanes, darts, billiards, table tennis, and a KTV party room. Moreover, the water park is the only one of its kind in Subic, offering a place to satisfy your “aquatic adrenaline fix”. Swirl around the Big Bowl slide solo, or rush down the Rampage slide with a partner. And try surfing at a safe and controlled environment at the two wave pools. At the beach, one can also enjoy riding jet skis and kayaking offshore.
The beach and water park are open from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM. For day visitors, the entrance fees are PHP 650 for adults, PHP 325 for senior citizens and free for children aged three to seven years old. Picnic tables, beachside pavilions and beach tents may be rented at additional rental fees.
