Emelia Hotel and Resort, a not-so-hidden gem in Medellin, is beckoning Cebuanos to come and visit.
It is a small and humble resort in Brgy. Kawit, Medellin. Although quite a ways away from the metro, the combination of its tranquil atmosphere and refreshing pool makes it a perfect destination for a vacation with friends or family.
The resort has a very welcoming atmosphere with its neatly arranged buildings and well-kept surroundings.
An ample amount of plants and trees is also present all over the resort that just adds to the beauty and cleanliness of the place. The resort entrance is facing a developed road but at the back of the resort are thriving flora that serve as a natural backdrop for the pool which is a testament to the natural beauty of Medellin.
The highlight of this simple sojourn is the enormous swimming pool that can accommodate large groups of people. Just right beside it is a kiddie pool where the kids can safely splash about with other children.
The design of the pool has a hint of playfulness to it that will surely bring the fun side out of everybody. Connecting the pool at two ends is a bridge and at the other tip of it is a water slide that the adults can enjoy.
Adorable nipa huts circle the outside of the pool and it comes in small and large sizes that could accommodate and provide shade to varying group sizes. On the little gardens around the pool area, there are fun human-sized models for cute Insta-worthy shots with your favorite superheroes.
The comfort rooms and shower areas are all spotless and comfortable to use as well. Snacks won’t be a problem as there are food stalls and snack bars inside the resort selling munchables.
The great thing about Emelia Hotel and Resort is its simplicity partnered with well-maintained facilities and a budget that’s light for the pocket. The small size of the resort also makes everything easy and within walking distance of one another. It offers a pleasing experience to its guests with its quality service and truly eases the mind from the stresses of the city.
