Paraiso ni Baste at Canumay East, Valenzuela City: A Quick Getaway from the City in the City

Yehey! It is summer once again! For a quick respite from the sweltering heat, One Valenzuela and Little One Valenzuela woke up early on a Friday morning to swim and  have some fun at Paraiso ni Baste Resort. It is a fairly new getaway located at Canumay East. The resort had its soft opening last April 9, 2013. 

One Valenzuela has already asked for directions via Paraiso ni Baste's Facebook page a few months ago, thinking that she will have some free time during the last leg of the semester. Hehe, guess things did not go as expected and so she had to wait (and work, work,work) until the first week of April.

Here's where you pay for the entrance fee and cottage rental. You will also see that a large parking space is available.
One of the many kubos in the resort. It can accommodate 10 to 15 persons. And yeah, they are guarded by dinosaurs! 
Viva Valenzuela! Now wearing Paraiso ni Baste's waterproof wristbands. The day of fun starts here!
There are several types of cottages available for visitors. Paraiso ni Baste has Tables, Cottages, Kubo, King Kubo, and Function Hall. One Valenzuela decided to get a table (Php300.00) since they do not need so much space. She chose a table which has a view of the kiddie pool and the middle pool.

Going around, One Valenzuela took several snapshots of the various cottages. It is a big plus to see a trash can and a metal rack in each one of them.  
Got a table which can accommodate 4 to 5 persons (Php300.00).  The staff were very helpful to the point where One Valenzuela no longer have to ask for help in adjusting the umbrella. They instantly came and offered their service.

Meet and greet the King of the Huts
Cottages which can accommodate 8 to 12 persons. One Valenzuela liked that there are trash cans and metal racks.  Lets you focus more on having a great time minus the hassle of  figuring out where the nearest trash bin is or where to put your wet stuff .
There are several life size animal and dinosaur statues in Paraiso ni Baste. Unlike other resorts which have their displays painted so-so, Paraiso ni Baste's statues look more real than One Valenzuela expected. You will also see small laminated cards with information beside the dinosaurs.
Once those vines grow a bit more, this pathway shall be covered with foliage and flowers.
Wonderful attention to detail. See those whiskers?
Rules and regulations of the resort are placed in various areas to inform the visitors. Lifeguards and staff on duty, who wear yellow shirts,  are also visible. From time to time, some of them would check the cleanliness of the pool water and its surroundings.
Visitors are reminded to follow the rules and regulations imposed by the resort. These are actually very generic and are for everyone's safety as well as to maintain the resort's ambiance.
Lifeguard on duty.
One Valenzuela saw how courteous the lifeguards are when they ask visitors to follow the resort's policies.
Yes, she heard them say "po" and "opo". ^_^
Paraiso ni Baste has three swimming pools. One for kids, another one built with batong buhay (that was how the lifeguard described it), and a lap pool. Manong  security guard said that Paraiso ni Baste will be building more pools in the future. 

The middle pool in the resort. One Valenzuela loves how warm the water is. A staff told her that this is the effect of the natural stones which were used here.
The King of the Jungle and a lifeguard take watch. This particular pool has a depth of 4 to 5 feet.
The Kiddie Pool which is 3 feet deep. See the famous Hello Kitty design?
Slide for children. Can't count how many times Little One Valenzuela went up and slid down. Inggit si mommy. ^_^

A short video of the two pools

Paraiso ni Baste's lap pool is 4 feet deep. One Valenzuela did a few laps of backstroke and breaststroke here. 

A short video of the lap pool area.

Shower area and comfort rooms. Another one is located near the kiddie pool. Hands down for the cleanliness! 
Little One Valenzuela in her full water gear. 
Little One Valenzuela stayed much of the time at the pool intended for children. Here, she practiced her flutter kicks in preparation for her swimming class the next day. She even taught her mom how to do some mermaid moves! Alona, is that you? 

Overall, mom and daughter really enjoyed their stay in the resort. One Valenzuela believes that Paraiso ni Baste has a lot more to offer in the near future. She highly recommends Valenzuelanos to visit the resort. After all, who doesn't want a quick escape from the city IN the city?

How to reach Paraiso ni Baste via Public Transportation:
Here is the response to One Valenzuela's query for commuting directions from Brgy. Malinta to the resort: "Sakay po kayo ng jeep papuntang Novaliches Bayan tapos sabihin ninyo sa driver na Metrobank Bagbaguin lang kayo. Pagdating ninyo po sa Metrobank, may terminal ng tricycle doon. Sakay po kayo at sabihin ninyo lang po na sa Paraiso ni Baste po kayo. " (Ride a jeepney going to Novaliches Bayan and tell the driver to drop you at Metrobank Bagbaguin. When you reach Metrobank, you will find a tricycle terminal. Ride one and tell the driver to bring you to Paraiso ni Baste.)

Kuya was very alert and even managed to pose as One Valenzuela quickly clicked the camera.
By the way, One Valenzuela saw several children taking up swimming lessons at the resort under Coach Rod Sacdalan
of Modern Aquatic Swimming School, Inc.
Paraiso ni Baste's front gate. Construction of another building is taking place within the vicinity.
