Vel Garden Resort - Dasmarinas, Cavite

Looking for a place in Cavite that's perfect for day tours, a place to chill for an overnight swim or longer chat time with friends over beers? Just a few minutes away from Aguinaldo highway in Cavite lies a hidden getaway named Vel Garden Resort to enjoy your stay!

Accommodations

They have rooms for those planning to do overnight trips or would like to get a room for their day trip and take some naps in between your swim time and departure time. Then I suggest that you actually rent a room. If you have the budget, it's best to get one so that you are pretty sure that your things are actually safe.

I think the room size is just enough for two to three people (request for extra bed) and the bathroom is for sharing. It is perfect for couples or family members since the glass door is quite a silhouette and you can see the vague image of the person inside the bathroom. If you are coming with your friends, it's gotta be awkward.

Each has a personal care kit containing a toothbrush, toothpaste and shampoo, 2 towels and a blanket. However, since it was a huge hit when we visited, groups of people were present at the place and they lack towels for my group.

Amenities

We had the chance to try one of their rooms located in a separate area from the pool even though it's just a few steps away. What I love about it is that the colors were quite pleasing and each room has a designated table and chairs so that you have a place to eat, drink or chat if you want to stay outside your room.


Vel Garden Resort also caters huge events like weddings, corporate-related receptions, and other huge parties, in a garden like an area and this space can be designed to your desired theme. The best part is that when you rent for the venue and you'd like to have it all in, you can also avail packages for their partners and have an all-in set-up.

Swimming pool

Vel Garden Resort also allows night swimming too so if you don't really want to experience getting tanned or having sunburns, then it's best that you do your swim at night. Aside from that, there's lesser people here so the pool isn't as crowded as it is in the morning.


This is the morning view of the pool. In fact, the place is also used for water zumba and was surprised that there's a group of girls doing their morning routine and they have a coach and a huge speaker for this exercise.


This resort is actually spacious even for people who plan to have day tours, Aside from their overnight room accommodations, you can also rent their cottages or just tables if you plan to have day tours only.


They have numerous cottages that you can rent so there's nothing to worry about not being accommodated when you walk-in. A long table and number of chairs are already included if you avail their cottage.


As for the slide, only the kiddie pool has the slide yet and that if you are up for some Instagram-worthy photos, the best spot to do it is here.

Proper Swimming Attire

The resort follows a strict rule on their guest so you must be ready for your summer outfit if you plan to swim here!

Ella's recommendations

1. So far, I could only recommend day trips for this resort since I'd like to see more improvements for their overnight facilities yet but getting a room for a day tour to store your things and food would be better than getting a cottage since cottages require someone to stay and get left out whenever the whole barkada goes for a swim.

2. There are no corkage fees for your food because they don't really sell food items on the resort. However, alcoholic beverages requires you some amount for corkage. They don't serve breakfast as well for those having overnights but you can also approach their cashier for their partnered restaurant that can cater to your needs.

3. If you are visiting on peak season or peak days, it's safe to say that you bring your own toiletries and towel just in case they'll lack items to give you when the place is a full house.
