Summer might be over but this should not stop you from enjoying Lakawon Island Resorts and Spa‘s fine white sand, crystal-clear beach, pleasantly windy air, evergreen palm trees and everything in this hidden paradise in Negros Occidental!

How to get there?

> From Bacolod City, take a Ceres bus down to Martisan Crossing for more than an hour. Fare : P 105

> From Martisan Crossing, take a motorcycle down to Lakawon Port for about 10 minutes. Fare: P 150 (good for 4)

> At the Lakawon Port, you need to pay the Island Resort’s entrance fee, terminal fee and the 2-way boat ride for P 380. 

>Boat schedule starts at 7:30am to 5:00 pm. So, from Lakawon port, it would take around 15-20 minutes to arrive at the picturesque destination.

And you have arrived!

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.

TIP: Upon getting the card, load it with some extra cash ahead of time to lessen the hassle. Worry not guys, for the unused amount would still be subject for refund by the time you check out.

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

The ambiance and my feelings were in harmony.
