Visiting Mambukal Mountain Resort (Updated 2016)

Visiting Mambukal Mountain Resort can be very exciting especially for those who are first timers. But even for a Negrense like me who frequents the place, the resort still has a magic to offer to her   every  guest.

Mambukal Mountain Resort was  originally developed by a Japanese architect named Kokichi Paul Ishiwata in 1927, the resort started as a bathhouse and picnic garden. The Ishiwata bathhouse is still there and was repaired a few years back.

The resort is situated in an almost 24-hectare land area and blessed with wonderful natural offerings. One of the most popular offerings of the resort of course aside for their swimming pools is the descending  seven (7) waterfalls. The water from the falls is  streaming into the center of the resort also feeding the water holes and a wide  boating  lagoon. I haven’t visited the falls for quite some time already, that’s why on my recent visit it was the first spot which I checked  upon my arrival.

I like the improvement the management did to the resort. There are uniformed, trained tour guide for the first timer visiting the falls. The pathways are well maintained and am glad that they did not cover it with cement, otherwise, it will look unnatural. But I love the metal railings they placed especially when climbing the falls.

On our way to the waterfalls, we passed by the area of canopy Walk and its walking bridges. We spotted some who tried it, but our time limits us, so we just went ahead to the falls. There were visible security guards even at the water falls area.

I just climb up to the 6th Falls because climbing the 5th up to the 1st Fall is already a big physical challenge.

Another  personal favorite about  Mambukal Mountain Resort  is a number of hot sulfur springs supplying a warm dipping pool and the Ishiwata Bathhouse. Many patrons  love these spots     as it gives one a relaxing feeling. I didn’t have the opportunity   to go warm dipping in my last visit due to lack of time. For those staying in the resort, The Blade Spa is there which offers massage for those who wanted to relax maybe after they dip from a sulfuric pool.

Atop the war dipping pool area are trees filled with bats. Mambukal Mountain Resort claimed to have more than 4,000 fruits bats in the area.

A few steps from the dipping pool area is an area for the ornamental flower vendors. For plant lovers, these are nice souvenirs to bring home from the resort.

For those who loves extreme  adventures, Mambukal Mountain resort offers     Wall Climbing or the Slide for Life facilities.

Mambukal Resort lies 1,200 feet above sea level and serves as a gateway to Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park.

I had conducted a series of training for various companies in this resort. I should say that Mambukal  Mountain Resort is  ideal for those inclined to mix business with pleasure. Mambukal has nice  conference halls that can accommodate a large number of guests  for various functions such as seminars, meetings, workshops, and conferences. Various overnight accommodation facilities are also available   —family cottages, standard rooms, dormitories, and campsites. The grounds are   definitely large for any team building or outdoor activities.

Picnic huts and canopies are strategically situated near the two swimming pool for excursionists.
