Pitstop: NAILON Beach Resort

Indeed hideaways are true to its name. They're isolated and built away from the city, making them difficult to find, but that surely didn't  stop us from discovering and staying in one of Cebu's distinct hideaways. 

Yes, we spent two nights and three days to conceptualize, at the same time relax in Nailon Beach Resort located in the far north of Cebu - to Bogo City, Philippines. 


Leaving North Bus Terminal occupying a V-hire at 9:30 am, we arrived at the resort at around 12 nn of Friday. That's a three-hour ride plus the traffic. We were charged Php 150 each as we requested the driver to drop us inside the resort, it was  supposed to be just P120 but it would still be equal to our total transportation expense since we still have to ride a motorcycle to get to the resort. When we arrived there, the owner of the resort gladly welcomed us. Coincidentally, the owner's from the same university as we are from.



We occupied one of the resort's superior room that could accommodate 14 people that makes one person per bed. We found it nice that in a single comfort room, there's two toilet and two shower cubicles where we could simultaneously take a bath and stuff. The room is fully-air conditioned and has a TV set with cable.

(from Nailon's official site)


Nailon Resort has one big pool which is 4 to 5 feet deep and beside it, just few meters away is the shore where it's also free to swim. There are 19 fully air-conditioned rooms in the resort, all with twin beds and private shower rooms - ready with hot and cold water.


 We used the resort's function room for our conceptualization. There's a projector, microphone and stereo in the room that guests could use. Probably, 15 to 20 people could occupy the room. The first five hours of use is free, and there'll be additional fees if there'd be an extension. If you choose to include in your package one round of coffee or other food and snacks, you could always do so.






Meals are served thrice a day (Breakfast, lunch, dinner) and snacks, depending on your package, but in our case, we didn't add it in our inclusions. I think their meals are really delicious, though you need to pay for your additional rice and drinks. That's P16 for every cup of rice.




Perfect for team-building, it is. Nailon offers its guests a wide space for recreation. Thus, here we are, enjoying their offer. We had fun playing dodge ball and volleyball when we got tired of swimming. There are swings in one corner for kids and kids at heart.



Well, I'll tell you beforehand, that the resort's waters(from sink to pool) tastes a little different - can't describe it really. It's already the start of summer when we went there, but there's only a few guests and that's great...I think.

FORWARD SUMMER '13


I personally love that the resort's facilities are just available at the corner.

We've been to different resorts before and I personally believe that this is one of Cebu's best. Just perfect for relaxation and team-building!!! Teehee.
