Ravanela Beach Bungalows, Moalboal, Cebu


Share

Here is another fierce find…

In my previous post, I mentioned that I had a tragic experience with Crown Regency Hotel (click here). However, my recent trip to Cebu was not awful all throughout. Well, thanks to our ever adventurous and spontaneous friend, he brought us to Moalboal, Cebu.

Moalboal is approximately 3 hours by car from Cebu Mactan Airport – passing by Carcar and Barili. It is a pleasant drive because of the picturesque landscape you’ll pass by along the way. It is indeed a haven for photography enthusiast. Do not worry if you didn’t bring food along the way, there are various restaurants. This is your chance to be adventurous!

Once you arrived in the resort, you will be immediately greeted by their very friendly attendant. If I’m not mistaken her name is Christina – a very sweet girl with a very infectious smile. We were ushered to check the rooms which are basically the same in terms of size. The only difference is the bed – either queen or 2 single. The rooms on the ground are either painted pink or green as the main colors. Furnishings include an imposing bamboo bed, low tables, wooden cabinet and an armchair. The bathroom is also decent with hot and cold water. There are chairs at the deck where you can relax and enjoy the fresh breeze.

The original price for an overnight stay was Php3,500 ($75.00). But with a lot of haggling, smiles and what have you, the owner gave us a sensible rate – Php3,000 ($62.00) - good for 3 PAX and comes with free breakfast.

One downside of the resort though is the food they served. Over breakfast, we were served with rock solid bread that could break your jaw and a margarine that was probably kept a hundred years in their fridge. Other than that, the food they serve is okay but nothing spectacular.

If there is any worth for our 3-hour drive is the white beach and white sands. Also, unlike most neighboring beaches; overcrowding is not an issue in Moalboal. In fact, we felt that we had the resort and beach all to ourselves.

So, if you happen to fly to Cebu and have the luxury of time, driving to Ravena Beach Bungalow is recommended.

Hi Enrico,

You really have the gift of writing... Interested to write for a foreign lifestyle magazine?

Anyway, I have been to Cebu 3 times but never visited this resort. It sure looks lovely!

you should try sampaguita beach resort in moalboal, but the water goes deep right away unlike the one in this post where the photos shows white sand and shallow water at the shore.
