It is about time to indulge in an elegant mountain resort !
At about 2 hours of a short off-road experience from Cebu to Bohol, you will arrive at the port of Tagbilaran, capital city of Bohol. And it takes 30 minutes from Tagbilaran going to Marqis Sunrise Sunset Resort and Spa by car.
On the way to the resort, there are some famous spots that you can pass through, like "Blood Compact Shrine" and "Baclayon Church". So let's have a short sightseeing first.
This iconic bronze sculpture done in 1999 by world-renowed Boholano National Artist, the late Napoleon V. Abueva, commemorates a very significant event in Philippine history – the friendship sealed in blood by local chieftain Rajah Sikatuna and Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Considered as the first treaty of international friendship in the country between two different races, religions, cultures, and civilizations. It was a pact based on respect and equality. This event commonly known as “Sandugo”.
The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Baclayon is one of the oldest stone churches in the Philippines and is located in Bohol, in the Visayas region. It is also known as the “Baclayon Church”. Construction began in 1717 where some 200 native forced laborers (obras pias) cut and dragged coral blocks from the sea, using only bamboos in moving and lifting the stones in position. Baclayon Church was crumbled to the ground after the magnitude 7.2 earthquake last 2013, and now fully resorted after how many years.
Now let's go to our main destination !
Yes, that’s right! The cottages are amazingly built on the top of a hill.
A Mountain resort with an infinity pool !
On your way up to the resort, you will have an astonishing arduous ride. As you can see, the hill is surrounded by giant trees and much elevated from the ground. With that, it can give you a nice scenery of the mountain and ocean. Along with the wind and sun, the place is bright and cool.
The 6 feet deep infinity pool is facing the ocean, it makes the small islands and Panglao visible. Not all hotel and resorts of Bohol have this kind of scenery. If you are planning to stay in Bohol to release stress and to relax, Marqis Sunrise Sunset Resort and Spa is the best place to stay. Due to its peacefulness, it’s more like you own the place.
They are all detached cottages, each of which is built along the slopes of the mountains, so they are made to look out of the cottage without any obstructions and a spectacular view!
There are 5 types of cottages depending on the number of people. Every cottage is very spacious, so even family and group with young children can relax without worrying about the surroundings. You can even have a movie time inside your scope.
It is a cottage that emphasizes native sensation, but there is a sense of cleanliness, discretion, freedom, and the nature feels like soaking inside you. There are steps that leads to each cottage so you can expect a very private accommodation. The shower is made in a garden style to feel more of nature, but since it is properly enclosed, there is no need to worry that it can be seen from the outside.
The Restaurant of the Resort
This is one of the greatest part of the resort. In here, you can taste the most delicious dishes that Bohol has yet to crack and it’s about time to scream how amazing is the taste of the food of this one of a kind restaurant. You will surely have a remarkable meal when you dine after a calm day at the resort, it is a small restaurant with enormous number of meals that will leave a mark in your mouths concluding, “they serve not only just a meal to boost your appetite but to give you a food that is worthy of your money, time, effort and even worthy of your mouth to chew".
It is an open-air restaurant on the side of the infinity pool with the entire view on sight. For now, the restaurant can only accommodate the in-house guests but soon they will open it to the public so even locals can dine and eat. The resort momentarily aim to expand and add one more pool twice and a half larger than the existing one, they will also offer day-use to both local and foreign guest in time. Now, allow me to show some dishes that you may want to taste at the restaurant.
HEWING’S ROASTED CHICKEN – P 585 (Whole chicken)
PRAWN SPECIAL with spicy sweet and sour sauce – P 770 (good for 2 persons)
* You wouldn’t notice that it is spicy because the sour and sweet taste of the Mango Coulis will explode in your tongue.
