My 2 sisters and their family living in Australia and Riyadh went home for the Christmas holidays few years back and it was the time we're all complete (sans my dad). Nothing compares to the bonding times that we had as a family. Since we are complete, we decided to have a family portrait that we all can keep. Looking for a place where we can have our photoshoot, my sister stumbled upon LOUISSE PRIVATE RESORT online, which happens to be just near our place. She browsed their website and inquired while she's still in Riyadh.
I was the one who was assigned to contact them through phone and I immediately book a slot for us. I called them via phone, reserved a slot and paid the downpayment at BPI. We took the 22 hours reservation that is from 7:00pm-5:00pm for P21,000 and luckily we got the DEC. 25 (yes, Christmas day) - Dec. 26 slots for our photoshoot and swimming too. We also did visit the place few days before our reserved date to see if it nice and we're impressed upon closer inspection of the place.
We had our Christmas Party at the resort: opening of gifts and family picture taking were indeed so much fun. A karaoke was also available for us to sing while wi-fi is available but it is weak that we can't even connect. We stayed up a bit late singing at the karaoke and exchanging stories, jokes and all.
Since we are having a formal photoshoot the next day, we woke up early around 5am because the make-up artists are already there. We are clad in red formal dresses and with our nice make-up on. We took the photography services from GREAT IMAGE at SM Taytay. A professional photographer and his assistant came to the resort as well to take photos of us. (Sorry, but i will not be sharing our family photos here). Their service took around 2 hours.
After the photo session, we are already itching to dip and dive into their pool. In no time, most of us are rushing and swimming at the resort's pool.
We had up until 5pm to stay at the pool swimming, singing and having fun at their nice resort. The water was a bit cold at their infinity pool that time so I didn't stay much in the pool, but the kids and the teens have so much energy swimming and staying in the water.
We got 3 rooms during our stay (1 master and 2 guestrooms) which are all air-conditioned and spacious. The kitchen was also spacious and we had our dinner and lunch at the gazebo where we had our buffet. There are quite numerous no. of toilets there, if I'm not mistaken there are 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs.
