Ibabaw Mountain Resort: A Relaxing Overlooking View

The island of Cebu is blessed with easily accessible hills and mountains that offer breathtaking views of the city, the sea and the aspiring horizons. Among these is Ibabaw Mountain Resort in Liloan, Northern Cebu.

The resort was once a simple rest house situated in a quaint position on the top of the mountain but due to its friendly atmosphere to welcome unexpected guests, the owner then decided to turn it to an overlooking view resort.

Let me give you a quick tour to one of your new summer escapade this year!

Ibabaw Mountain Resort is 3 and a half kilometers from the National Road. It would take you approx. 15 minutes coming from eskina Yati, Liloan.

From the intersection in Yati (from the city, before the big RC Cola billboard on your right), turn left near MLhuiller, drive up to San Vicente. You’ll then pass by the San Vicente Barangay Hall; just a few meters after, take the sharp right that will take you to Sta. Cruz. When you reach where the road splits, keep left (don’t take the asphalt road going up the hill). And just opposite to Sta Cruz Barangay Hall, turn left. You will then arrive at the resort after 50 meters. You can either follow the the resort’s tarps posted along the road.

For the commuters, take a habal-habal from the Yati intersection – just a few meters from the entrance of Yati Elementary School. Ask the driver to take you to Ibabaw Mountain Resort. Fare is only P40 good for 2pax – if you’re alone, you still need to pay P40.

The resort also offers official transportation van that can accommodate up to 18 persons.
