When people think of Balamban, a common misconception about it being dangerous usually comes to mind because of its steep and blinding curves. However, a number of entrepreneurs have seen the municipality’s potential and decided to take advantage of the silence and the cool temperature which makes it one of the best places to free one’s mind.
Below is the list of places that one may check out:
West 35 Eco Mountain Resort
A café that offers a 360-degree viewing deck makes your day extra refreshing with nature’s pristine state as your surroundings.
With over five different rooms to choose from, this ensures a quality stay that’s within budget. The glass windows create a full view of the surrounding mountains nearby and one may relax in a private bathroom with an indoor Jacuzzi. Function rooms are also available for your special occasions with your loved ones, while a kids’ playground is sure to keep the little ones hyped all afternoon.
Felixberto’s Burgers & Hotdogs
This stall can easily be spotted along the Transcentral Highway. It’s considered as the pit stop for motorcyclists and bikers alike who want a bite of their famous burger made with homemade patties and hotdogs as they quench their thirst with soda. If you’re not a fan of cold beverages, they also offer hot drinks like tea, chocolate and coffee as the temperature drops especially during the rainy season.
D’ Village Antique House and Diner
If you are a fan of history, then you are surely going to enjoy coming to this place. They display prehistoric artifacts and other vintage materials shipped all the way from Indonesia and other neighboring countries. The house’s rich architectural design is also bound to give you all the feels as you enjoy their homemade dishes and street food. What’s better? They serve food perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you wish to stay the night, you may also bring your tent to camp right outside the area.
The name speaks for itself as one may experience zip lining, wall climbing, rappelling, caving, trekking and throwing plates to release their anger onto their stress walls, aside from enjoying the sumptuous food and beverages. The parking space is not a problem, as they have designated parking spots for any type of vehicle. Should one want to immortalize their experience with their loved ones, then a lovelock can be placed along the staircase.
An infinity pool located within the mountains is definitely enticing in itself, but the addition of an entertainment area and a multipurpose space surely seals the deal. Though none of the rooms have an air conditioning unit, nature sure has its back, as the refreshing air completes the much-needed break. However, a minimum of 20 guests are needed in order to avail the amenities and should guests want to extend their stay, the private guest house is ready to provide the necessary items for maximum comfort.
