Alviera Country Club opens doors to premium northern lifestyle
The sprawling property is destined to be the region’s premium destination for family recreation and social interaction, the go-to center for parties, thrilling sports, formal affairs, fun times and quiet conversations. Located at the heart of Alviera in Porac, Pampanga, the club is a sprawling property topped with a defining roof resembling a leaf. The design by Leandro V. Locsin Partners is an homage to Alveria’s concept of urban development amid nature. Mountain views can be enjoyed from different vantage points of the structure. Alviera Country Club boasts of a network of pools that welcomes visitors right off the entrance of the club. There is a central lounge pool, a smaller lounge pool, a half-Olympic sized lap pool with six lanes, and a kiddie pool that functions more as a water park. Children will burst with excitement from their pool’s water jets and fountains. The kiddie pool also features a slide with an open area with water splash pads.
An indoor play area with lockers and changing room plus an outdoor splash park completes a virtual fun zone for children. Kids who prefer to stay dry and channel their energy through video games can do so in the game console room. KTVs and theater rooms round up the entertainment facilities. For more courtside entertainment, Alviera Country Club has indoor and outdoor courts where players can enjoy tennis and badminton, or basketball, and volleyball. The fitness gym comes with a dance studio for yoga, Zumba and jazzercise classes. Over the next few months, club members will come together for some exciting sports and recreational activities. Sports camps for individuals and families are scheduled for the last quarter, as well as darts and billiard tournaments. Members can soon explore more of the club’s grounds when they sign up for the Family Amazing Race. Kids and adults can test their agility or giggle their way through the upcoming inflatable Obstacle Course Challenge. There are yoga classes, pilates, aqua Zumba and aquatic fitness classes scheduled.
Alviera Country Club will also be organizing and launching its own tennis league, basketball club, and badminton club. The Porac mountain views will inspire the more artistically inclined. The club will host painting classes and exhibits, bag designing class and craft tutorials for Christmas décor.
As with other centers of social affairs, Alviera Country Club is prepared to host different types of events. There are three meeting rooms and a large boardroom on the ground floor. On the second floor are two ballrooms that can be combined into a grand hall that can accommodate as many as 500-600 guests. A pre-function area running the length of the hall provides a view of the entire club. The Club has three restaurants top-billed by Manyaman Restaurant, a 112- seater restaurant that offers Filipino and international dishes. The restaurant extends to an alfresco dining area by the central lounge pool.
Sabyan Café offers hot and cold beverages and a wide array of sandwiches, freshly baked bread and pastries, pasta, and crispy thin pizzas. Meantime, Galo Sports Bar features a bar menu with appetizers like sisig, salted pepper squid and cheesy baked beef nachos. Patrons can also enjoy darts, billiards and table tennis over drinks. “With the opening of the Alviera Country Club, we mark a huge milestone in the estate’s growth and development. We look forward to welcoming members and guests to experience Pampanga hospitality at its finest,” said Melanie Eugenio, the Alviera Project Development Manager. Alviera Country Club membership includes use of all the amenities within the Club, as well as the fun and excitement from the Sandbox outdoor adventure park and urban karting.
Over the next five years, Alviera visitors will have even more to look forward to as leisure developments are built up. These include trekking and “glamping” sites, a new hotel and more eco-tourism activities.
