The Hidden Valley Mountain Resort in Pinamungajan might not be the easiest resort to reach but once there, if you love nature and all her glory, this place will definitely not disappoint. Then of course, the resort boasts Cebu’s first and only wave pool at the time of this writing.
The pool itself is massive by Cebu’s standards with an estimate area of about 2,000 square meters. Unfortunately however, if your looking for a pool that you can enjoy diving into (AKA deepe), this isn’t going to work for you. But hey, did I mention it has artificially generated waves that can go as high 2 meters if the operated so desires? That’s right! Higher than you most likely they want it to.
But of course, given the family and recreational market of the resort, you don’t expect surfing waves on here anytime soon unless maybe you can talk the owner into doing so. The whole gentle to moderate waves experience is no doubt an experience to write home about especially since this is the only place in Cebu that you can experience such.
The pool itself has an amazing backdrop of Pinamungajan’s mountain formations and if you get lucky, you might even chance upon a part of it where water falls.
All around the pool, there are also cottages and accommodations of various sizes. The cheapest cottage can be had at 600. There are bigger ones that are naturally more expensive.
The place actually is composed of 2 resorts which can get confusing. We ended up paying the PHP 150.00/head fee which gives you access to the wave pool as well as all the other parts of the massive area the entire resort has to offer. I believe if your just interested in going to the wave pool, it’ll only be PHP 100.00/head.
They have plenty of choices when it comes to day use and overnight accommodations as well. A room for 2 would set you back about PHP 1,400.00 for day use and PHP 2,000.00 for overnight. They also have bigger rooms and even dormitory like accommodations for team buildings and larger groups. Here’s an estimate of their pricing although this is not updated by no means so best would be to try and get a hold of them through contact details provided later on this post – although you should be patient because getting a hold of them is not the easiest of feats.
