Team Building At Canyon Woods Residential Resort

It’s been more than two years now yet the memories from the last team building I had with my dear colleagues in the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) remain unbroken.

It was 18 May 2011 when our big boss was finally granted a, for lack of a better term, free rental for one of the beautiful houses in Canyon Woods Residential Resort—courtesy of her big gun crony. We were grateful that we didn’t prowl the internet for special deals and promotional discounts just to get to the place, and we are fortunate that all the Solicitors General fully support company outing. It should be noted that team building greatly helps in strengthening the organization’s team spirit because it fosters better communication; contributes towards motivation; and builds trust among employees. All of which result to a greater productivity that corresponds to the success of the organization. No wonder, OSG en bloc remain one of the most steadfast and prolific government agencies in the archipelago.

I’m proud to say that I got to the place because of this staff outing that was jam-packed with physical activities last May 19 to 20, 2011.


So much of that, let me turn the page to what my featured tourist spot has to offer.

The Canyon Woods Residential Resort (Canyon Woods) in Tagaytay City was the first to introduce the concept of a residential resort in the area, and nature and health are their twin themes according to their website.

Canyon Woods is tucked in the middle of a quiet surrounding of tall trees and rolling greens. It offers various amenities for the residents and tourists’ pleasure such as a golf course, fitness center, indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, spa with a special Thai massage room, outdoor pool, indoor courts for badminton and basketball, bowling center, salon, mini theater, coffee shops, restaurants, clinic, gift shop, library, and function rooms.



Canyon Woods is approximately a two-hour drive from the metropolis. What will greet you at the entrance are the cyclopean, coniferous trees situated on both sides of the road. They collectively form a hugging canopy for arriving tourists and residents. The trees’ sweet smell circulated through the gentle morning breeze provides that rustic, New Zealand-like ambiance. And if you add to that the prevailing cool clime, you will unconsciously spell heaven out. City dwellers are likely to bask under the sun or saunter through the woods upon arrival–which we, of course, did.




And here’s one big catch for travelers, especially suckers of panoramic views: Canyon Woods gives spectacular sceneries of Taal Lake and the famous active Taal Volcano in it.

      So am I, bro. That’s why I took a photo of it–hoping na may magaya man lang kahit konti sa itsura niya.

    Went to Tagaytay the last time I was in the Philippines, but my pictures and our view of Taal Volcano was not visible that day. 😦 Nice setting, very nice compositions.


    1. Sony Fugaban says:

      Thanks, bro. Much as I want to show you a decent view of the lake and the volcano too, I failed. Wish I could go back there and use what I have now to correct that. hehe
