ABOUT THE RESORT
Nicolas Island Resort is a private and relatively uninhabited which makes the Resort a tourist haven. Situated in the heart of Caubian Daku Island Lapu-Lapu which is only 12 kilometers away from Punta Engano and 15 kilometers from Jetefe, Bohol. It is approximately 40 minutes from either Angasil Port or Hilton Port by boat.
The Resort is owned and operated by Paz Matbagon Espinosa and her family, the same people who own and operate Maria’s Escape (Travel & Tours). It is named after her father, the late Nicolas Matbagon, who was one of the seven children of Felipe and Vicenta Matbagon who owned the whole Island.
Nicolas Island Resort is perfect for couples, families and friends who would want to have a different kind of bonding. With the island's raw beauty and the resort's high-quality service, I assure you there is nothing like it in Cebu.
The peacefulness of the place is beyond words. And if I could give an example of pure tranquility with privacy, without a doubt, Nicolas Island Resort is the perfect one!
The resort has 2 fully furnished houses with complete amenities. The interiors are simple, and oh, there’s no WIFI. You must connect yourself with the people you’re with and with the nature. This is totally a unique staycation!
