Here Comes Summer: Ibabaw Mountain Resort Liloan

Who isn’t excited for summer? Yeah? Well I think it is not too early for us to start our summer vacation. First stop, Ibabaw Mountain Resort. 🤗

We chose this to be our first stop well because this is actually for our belated Anniversary celebration. I saw the photos taken by the co-worker of my boyfriend and took my attention. Aside from their eye-catching photos, the place is so nice as well. The ambiance is nice. In this post, I will be sharing to you our overall experience, how to get there, and the overall budget needed.

How To Get There? 🤔

You have 2 options in going to Ibabaw Mountain Resort. This is a little bit far and might get lost especially if it is your first time. On our travel, we didn’t use car because we chose to commute para joy ride hahaha. So here it is:

📍Ride 13C at University of San Carlos Main Campus or at Colon then tell the driver to stop you at Tintay. [EST 30-45 minutes | Traffic around the area]
📍From Tintay Jeepney Terminal, ride a tricycle going to Canduman.
📍When you are already at Canduman, you have to pass by the overpass for you to cross highway and ride a jeepney. Tell the driver to stop you by Yati Elementary School. The driver will stop you somewhere in Yati, then ask someone there where to ride going to Ibabaw Mountain Resort and they will guide you.
📍In our case amo gipakyaw ang tricycle hahaha so we paid 100 for our fare for the 20 minutes travel from Yati Elementary School to Ibabaw Mountain Resort.

Overnight Stay + Rooms and Cottages Reservations 👌

Now we have arrived after an hour and a half of travelling. GRABE ANG INIT SUMMER NAJUD hahaha. So we will be having an overnight stay at Ibabaw Mountain Resort. When we arrived, there are indeed a lot of people. Before I proceed, I am going to tell you that we had done our reservation a week before. Why? Kay perme fully book. We were supposed to book last March 10 unfortunately fully booked jud sha so I moved it to March 17.

We were so tired from the trip + the heat of the sun makes us lose our energy, we decided to take a nap for at least 2 hours. Our check in time was 12nn and we have arrived at 11:45am. There is no food corkage so we bought Shawarma Rice for our lunch. After eating, we took a nap and woke up by 2pm.

2pm, where we roam around the area, we ate our snacks at their canteen. We bought Iced Coffee and a Clubhouse sandwich. The whole place is so refreshing, you can feel the coolness of the air. The staff there were very accommodating and so nice. After we ate our snacks, we took photos around the area. 📸

3:15pm, went back to the room to charge our cameras and all and took a rest. We didn’t swim around that time yet because there are lots of people using the pool and it is too hot outside (hadlok muitom bes hahahah). We decided to swim by 5pm because that is the time that people will be going home.

There is also a small sari-sari store there too. Below are the photos we took at the pool. Around 5pm to be exact. 💑🤭

Ibabaw Mountain Resort has only one pool for everyone. I love how the place looks like, you can really feel that you are really away from the city. You feel relax and takes away your stress. We ate our dinner at their canteen. There is a live band as well! While eating you can jam with them too. 🎤🎼

Overall we had fun with my boyfriend on our first Summer Vacation this year. You can check my vlog that will be linked below to see our whole experience at Ibabaw Mountain Resort. Bring your friends, partner and family here! You will surely enjoy and love the place.
