If you’re looking for a scenic mountain resort and won’t mind too much to travel 2-3 hours from the hustle and bustle of the city, read on.
Situated at the high grounds of Argao — overlooking the sea between Bohol and Cebu Islands, the JSJS Mountain Resort is place where it has a pleasant environment and atmosphere — perfect for your comfort, relaxation and rest.
First considered to be just a rest house, it was then converted to an inland mountain resort. Soon after, plans for the developments and improvements in the surrounding area were initiated. Structures like big function halls, hotel rooms, cottages, restaurant and swimming pools with water slides were constructed. With these added features, the rest house turned resort can now cater and accommodate different outdoor and indoor activities and special occasions like weddings, birthday parties, clan reunions, school retreats, team buildings, galas, debuts, boot camps, homecomings, fundraising events, and many more. Exclusive use of the whole resort can also be accommodated.
