Relax at Marugo Mountain Resort


Located just three kilometers away from the town of Tapaz in the Province of Capiz in the Philippines is a lake known as Marugo. The lake is actually a dam, made to irrigate the nearby San Juan, San Antonio and San Pedro farm lands. The enterprising Palomar Family, who owns a 38 hectare land right in front of the lake, created this peaceful resort right in the middle of the green mountains and hills of Capiz on September of 2008.

To truly savour the tranquil environment, hop on  a floating cottage (Php 500) and let yourself be transported to an entirely different world and swim to your hearts delight in the blue green water of the lake. The floating cottage can accomodate up to 15 persons. The swimming pool situated on top of the hill is presently restricted to visitors.

Side cottages (Php 200) are also available for the faint of heart. Your experience will not be complete without food, so bring your picnic baskets. The resort has no restaurant (yet), but there is a small sari-sari store where you can buy chichirias (junk food), sodas, plastic cups, etc. Note that the resort is only open for day tours until 6pm daily.  Click here for more pictures.

Getting There:

Iloilo City is the best jump-off point going to the town of Tapaz in Capiz. There are several airlines with routes going to Iloilo daily. From Iloilo City, take a Tapaz-bound bus (about 1.5 hours). RoRo buses from Manila pass by the town of Calinog, the town adjacent to Tapaz. From Calinog, take a Tapaz-bound bus (about 30 minutes). The lake is not accessible to the highway, hence it is best to bring your own or hire a vehicle from the town Tapaz or Calinog.
