West 35 Eco-Mountain Resort!

Hey, guys! Went with the family on a road trip to Busay and Balamban today! We went to West 35 Eco-Mountain Resort. It’s located in Gaas, Balamban along with the other attraction sites like Adventure Cafe, K33, and Island in the Sky.

We left the house at around 10:00 AM and got to the place at around 11:30 AM. Most of you probably know that the drive going there is a steep and winding road. It’s a bit dangerous too, so better be careful.

One of the things I recommend on doing before actually arriving at West 35 is to buy corn at the small market place along the road. You can’t really miss it. Lots of vendors that sell fresh fruits and vegetables for prices much cheaper than that in the city. But I definitely recommend buying some sweet corn. It’s sort of what Busay and Balamban is known for. Kind of cheap too. Better take advantage while you’re there anyway.

We got to the place and it was really breathtaking. We got lost along the way, but there was a signboard which guided us as to where the place was, so it was all good. I’ll be posting a lot of pictures, so don’t worry!

West 35 Eco Adventure Park has several facilities which include: a playground, restaurant, viewing deck, trekking trail, zipline and villa accommodation!

My nephew, Enzo, had a fun time in the kid’s playground. I tried some of the obstacles, but then reminded myself that I didn’t fit into the 5-12 age category! PHP 50.00 per child and with the guardian, but luckily, we didn’t get to pay to use it today. Maybe because it’s Sunday? Check out the pictures. He’s starring in it! This place is good if you have kids. They’ll enjoy this area for sure!

That’s that for the kid’s playground! Let’s take a look at the restaurant and viewing deck. It was a bit of a climb, but it was really nice. Great design, nice furniture and it was really windy. That kind of cold wind that you can only experience in high altitude environments.

Let’s not forget to include the food! The name of their restaurant is Haven Cafe. Food was very reasonable with price ranges of PHP 120.00 to PHP 200.00 per plate of food. Surprisingly, the food was really good! We had fresh garden salad, baby back ribs, tinolang manok and pork barbeque. We also had a pitcher of their healthy iced tea at PHP 150.00 and it was pretty good! Sort of like a healthy version of C2. Let the pictures do the talking!

Did that make you hungry or what? Well, we had some good food and got to rest. The fresh air was so refreshing. We took a walk and got to inquire about their villa accommodation! If you’ve got some friends to bring, then it is a welcome place. I’ll list down the prices of their overnight villas later, but enjoy the pictures! No air conditioning, but you won’t need it as the mountain air will suffice as natural AC! There’s also a bonfire with a great view, so that’s another plus!

  1. i was there around 1st week of feb, it was awesome and freezing during the night time, spent 2 days but wished I knew about this place sooner!

    • Hi! I’m not exactly updated if they have a room for two, as I remember the rooms we visited were of a villa type, and they were kind of on the roomy side. But please do check the contact number information posted at the end of the post, and you can call them to ask and confirm. Thanks!

  2. Nice blog.
    Sir,
    Can you possibly give us directions on how to go there. Btw, is it safe for a lady driver who’s new in cebu to go there? Would you allow your own daughter to drive her car going there po? Hope to receive your prompt reply :)
    Thanx

    • I wouldn’t know because I don’t have a daughter? Haha. But it’s pretty straightforward to get there. Not that confusing. Just bring a car with a powerful engine so it’ll be easier for the steep angles. I think calling West 35 and asking for directions would be best. Good luck!

  3. Hi,
    The shuttle service fee mentioned, does that mean we can take their shuttle from cebu city? Or I totally took that wrong? :/
