One of the places we visited during our vacation is Tuburan Mountain View Resort.
Tuburan is located at Sitio San Roque, Bgy. Bolol Mala, Tupi South Cotobato. (Yep, we went as far as South Cotobato during this trip!). It’s about 1 hour away from General Santos airport. From Davao proper, it took us about 4 hours by road.
I didn’t complain (much!) of the long road trip. I was with family and we were enjoying the view. I have not seen a lot of green in the desert so this was definitely a huge change. It was already almost dinner time when we arrived at the resort so we didn’t see much. We ate and stayed inside the room for the night.
We stayed in a big room with about 12 beds. Good for sharing with friends and families! They also have cottages for those who just want to stay during the day.
Wake up call came early next morning (when I say wake up call, it’s my aunts and cousins knocking loudly at our door, calling us for breakfast … LOL).
We took the chance to roam around the huge property and check out all the amenities.
This is the fish pond where they have kois and Tilapia.
This is a closed function room which can accommodate 25 – 30 people. Good for conferences and retreats.
This is the bigger (open) function room which is good for reception venues.
This is the glorious pool. I love that it is not treated water. This is deep well water that’s so clean that you can drink! The pool is also not stagnant. It over flows to other parts of the resort like a stream. A very nice concept, right?
Flora and Fauna
Aside from swimming and fishing, there’s more to see around the resort. They have a lot of animals roaming around …
And different kinds of plants and flowers… (love love this pic … can you see the fly?)
There’s also a river within the vicinity. It’s only about ankle deep. Really nice place for meditation.
And finally, you can see the whole resort and have an awesome adrenalin rush at the same with the Zip Line.
That’s me going for the first time. I should have put this on my bucket list I am crossing this off my bucket list (ssshhh.. I just added it recently. HAH!!) Who knew I would have the guts to do this??
This is definitely one of the highlights of my vacation!
