Enjoy the naturally refreshing and naturally thirst-quenching waters of Mt. Uragay Spring Resort in Carmen, Cebu. The pristine waters of this refreshing spring is a great alternative to hot, open beaches. For those who prefer to cool off and are fine with not having a tan on their skin, then this spring resort is definitely for them.
The spring of Mt. Uragay Spring Resort used to be the water source of the bottled water company, Nature Spring, until they were able to find another source of their own. After the bottled water company left the spring, the spring was left with no use so some people took the initiative and turned it into a resort.
Just like how the bottled water refreshes the body, the 2 spring pools present in the resort also provide the same cool feeling to those who take a dip in it. The pools are covered by the canopies created by the branches of trees thriving within the vicinity so the heat of the sun rarely finds its way into the pools.
Due to the shade offered by the various flora, the pools stay cool and fresh all throughout the day so no matter what time the guests visit, the guests will be greeted by the same refreshing water. The resort is also located in the mountains so rest assured that the breeze blowing into the resort is pure and clean.
The water from the pools comes from a tubod or spring which is how the spring maintains its cool and refreshing temperature. Although small, the crystal clear pools are more than enough to entice visitors to stay and take a dip. Aside from swimming pools, there are also 15 cottages that could accommodate small to big groups.
For those who want to stay for a few days to bask in the natural atmosphere, there are 3 overnight rooms for the taking. Kiosks are also present in the resort and they sell snacks and refreshments but if guests are looking for heavy meals, then it would be recommended that they pack their own meals before travelling to the resort.
This nature-filled vacation spot in Carmen will surely melt away all your worries and replace it with relaxation through its pools and natural surroundings.
