The resort does not cater cash on hand payments but only with this cash card to which you can also avail at the Lakawon Port.

The huts, made extra special with its curtains.


Well, woudn’t even like to miss a shot from that area.


Another one, with my sunglasses on. Hi there, Mr. Golden Sun!


And of course, a full body shot.


If you plan to rent a shade, the Cottages there costs P1200 whereas the Umbrella Huts are at P600. Energy outlets are also conveniently installed in each.


The number of cottages made available is obviously due to the increasing number of tourists year by year.


Strolling around the island made that huge smile on me.


When every direction leads you to one thing – paradise.


Life Guard on duty.


Bamboo huts in every corner for those who want to stay the night.



The long ramp along the sea could be your next hot spot for your IG- worthy shots!


Did mine there too.


Swinging like I ain’t on a beach.


Another spot in the island to lay down and rest.


A mini souvenir shop to take home with you the Island experience.

The place even gave me an ‘A-lister’ feels that day.


Holding my breath for about five seconds to achieve that angle.


The ambiance and my feelings were in harmony.


this place = perfect tan


The barrel, placed in purpose as a prop.


Two floors with one purpose – to give relaxation and rejuvenation. Just a  fast  fact,  Taw hai is a local  term in  Negros  which  means  “relaxed”


Choose your color, dear tourist!


I could sleep all day long here while hearing the crashing of waves to my eardrums.

Food and drinks are also available there at an affordable  price. Food rate starts  at P150 and drinks  at  P100.


Buffalo Wings with fries for P190 (marinated with garlic and calamansi, salt and pepper to taste with hot sauce and tomato sauce)

As deep as the sea are my thoughts.
