Bohol, Philippines — Like the Chocolate Hills, tarsiers, and those delightful peanut kisses, Loboc River Resort has emerged to be a popular figure in the province of Bohol. This riverside resort features the beauty of nature and the modern hospitality all travelers yearn.
1. It transforms to a ‘waterpark’ during high tide
During summer season, when the tide is high, the river water enters the resort grounds. This is why the rooms and facilities are built on elevated stilts. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a light play of fishes, colors, and reflections at night looking down from the boardwalk.
2. It has its very own Monkey Island
Surrounded by a water buffalo and swimming ducks, these monkeys inhabit the island and at times cross the water to look for food.
3. Secret Suite
Not known to all, LRR has a special river view suite room complete with a living room, kitchenette, and bathtub offered only their official website if you book direct; room may be subject to availability.
4. Hidden Bridge
Aside from the more popular Bilar hanging bridge (which requires an entrance fee), there’s a nearby hanging bridge that can be seen at the resort’s restaurant. And guess what? You can cross and take selfies at this bridge for free!
5. Next attraction
Loboc River Resort is currently building a unique jungle-themed pool equipped with an outdoor bar and lounge.
6. All the space you need
With a land area of over 10 hectares, Loboc River Resort has a remaining 5 hectares of land with preserved nature. This is perfect for bird watching, trekking, and jogging.
