Ten Cents to Heaven Resort in Tanay, Rizal

Updated March 2016

Ten Cents to Heaven Resort is the kind of place you’d go to just to meditate amidst nature. With its cool climate, manicured gardens in front of a sea of hills, stairways lined with pine like trees and wooden cabanas shrouded in vines, this resort and leisure camp in Tanay, Rizal offers a serene respite from city life. Best of all, it’s not that far from the metro.

The resort is located along the Marilaque highway in Tanay, Rizal, which is my favorite getaway for weekend road trips. I first spotted the place during a random solo ride in 2014 to check out some of the new restaurants in the area suitable for road trip pit stops. Since then, this has been one of our choices for quick breakfast rides during the weekend. The sprawling 30-hectare mountain resort provides a 360-degree view of the Sierra Madre mountain ranges and Laguna de Bay. What I like most about it is it doesn’t get as crowded as some of the more popular pit stops for bikers.

Getting here is pretty easy if you have your own private transportation. Their official website claims they’re just a 45 minute drive from Ortigas. By motorcycle (passing through Marikina and Cogeo traffic), it usually takes me 1.5 to 2 hours to get here from Quezon City. The whole resort has well-maintained facilities and some extreme activities available to guests.

The resort has sprawling grounds with lots of different areas where you can hang out. There are several camping decks (they can provide the camping setting and sleeping bags or you can bring your own camping materials), a recreational hall, and rows of open air view deck cabanas with wooden curtains where you can just relax during the day. If you want to stay overnight, they also have family rooms, communal dorms, full house rentals (for 40 pax), and night cabanas available.

Ten Cents to Heaven is mainly a venue for special events like weddings, birthdays, family reunions, parties or retreats. They have a large recreational hall / function room for indoor events and a courtyard garden for outdoor events. The place even has its own pavilion and chapel.

The scenic view, all the rustic wooden details, and fresh flowers in bloom make the place an ideal spot for pre-nuptial pictorial sessions. There are very nice landscaped walkways in the outdoor gardens, while the pavilion and private deluxe room offer nice spots for photos.

In front of the enclosed pavilion are two swimming pools, with stunning views of the Sierra Madre mountain range. Construction was still ongoing in some of the buildings during the time of my first visit, but they’ve since finished most of the work.

The swimming pools are a bit small, but they are very well maintained.

A new addition is the fish spa therapy in the ground floor outdoor deck area of the restaurant, where you can sit on benches and have doctor fish clean off the dead skin of your feet. This costs P200 for 30 minutes.

Ten Cents to Heaven was mainly designed as a team-building event venue, so there are a lot of activities you can do here around the grounds.

There’s a 1.2 km long zipline (which they claim to be “the longest zipline in Luzon”). You can ride here superman style or sitting down, either one-way (with pick up on the other side) or two way. There’s a shorter junior zipline that’s more suitable for kids. Here’s a video of the actual zipline.

There’s also a cool 150-meter long hanging bridge leading back from the zipline to the obstacle course.

If you’re not planning to stay the night, you can just stop by for a meal at the Camp Cafe Resto Bar, their in-house restaurant, which has a pretty good selection of Pinoy and International cuisine (most are good for sharing).

    • Hi Jessa, here’s a map from Ten Cents to Daranak Falls. It’s about 18.4 km via Marcos Highway & Tanay-Sampaloc Road. Have not tried commuting here, as motor usually dala ko, but other bloggers say you can hire a tricycle from the Tanay Public Market in Brgy Sampaloc to get to Daranak (P50-100/person depends on usapan niyo ng trike). Entrance fee for Ten Cents is P100/person. Entrance fee for Daranak is P50/person while it’s another P100/person for Batlag Falls.

      • Hi! Sa pagpunta ba sa Daranak malapit na lang yung 10 cents at di ba kami mahihirapan matunton yung 10 cents for first timer? TIA. 🙂

    • Hi Jeanette, the road going to Ten Cents is fully concrete/paved and accessible to all types of vehicles. May konting stairs lang papuntang cottages since resort is located on the side of a hill.

  4. hi miss kara. would like to ask if mahirap po kaya mag-drive going there from QC? Nakita ko po kasi sa Google Maps, parang Baguio po ba ito pataas at maraming sharp turns? Thanks po!

    • Hi Anne. The road going there is twisty, but that’s what makes driving there fun. It’s easy enough to drive if you’re taking a car or motorcycle (steep lang yung ibang parts for those on bikes), but the scenery is great.

  5. hi? can i ask a question? sa per activity ba like rappelling? hanging bridge? may bayad po ba yun? sight seeing lang po sana ko kaso gusto ko rin mtry yun hehe thanks

    • Hello. Entrance fee just to go in and do sightseeing is P100/person. The activities all have different rates and separate ang bayad. Please check the “Travel Tips & Useful Info” section at the end of the post.

      Good luck getting home kasi madalang ang jeeps. It’s better if you have your own transportation.

  7. Hi I’m from San Beda College Manila, the current vice president of the San Beda Outdoor Club. We are planning to execute an activity inside the school so I just wanna ask if there are instances na you will bring the rappelling, wall climbing and other activities that is possible to transfer in other places like here in our school.
    It’s like advertising your resort and the activities and we can talk about the other details if its possible.

    • Hello Madelaine, I’m not connected with Ten Cents to Heaven, but the wall there is not something you can take apart. For mobile wall climbing and rappelling activities, you should get in touch with Power Up Climbing Philippines. This is their Facebook page.

  9. Planning to go to 10 cents during Asean holiday and side trip to Daranak Falls. Would you recommend 6 year olds to hike going to Daranak or Batnag Falls? Is it safe?


    • Hi Carol, yes the hike to Daranak is very easy for kids. Batlag requires a bit of a tiring walk, but short lang. The area is safe since. I’m just going to warn you that Daranak Falls gets crowded during weekends and holidays.
