Agua Villa Resort is an exclusive resort located in Panalipan, Catmon, Cebu. It is about an hour drive going up north. You can rent the whole place for only 10,000 (overnight) and that is already good for 10 to 15 people with accommodation and facilities included already.
We went to the place for our team building. This time, I was not able to travel with my girlfriend because of our schedules. Anyways, the place is indeed a good venue for group outing, team buildings, small group reunions, and even family outing. They have a kitchen where you can cook your meals, indoor and outdoor dining area; they also have parking space enough for two cars or van; the place has a gate so it is quite safe; they have a living room where you can have your siesta; they have 2 air conditioned room and 1 big dorm-type room. The whole place is really nice and I can say that it is very “sulit” having it for only 10,000 bux. If you are a group of 15 then the damage would only be 600 plus per person. Not bad at all for such experience.
How To Get There: From Cebu City, take the North bound bus in North bus terminal. Just tell the bus attendant to drop you off at the said resort in Panalipan, Catmon; just a few kilometers from Carmen. Fare would be 65 php as of this posting.
Here are some shots of the place. (Photo Credits to Moc and Flesy.)

Resort Balcony & Activity Area
This is how it looks like outside the resort: The resort is just along the way so it is not that hard to locate. It is on the right side if you are going up north from the city.

Virgin Beach Resort is a budget-friendly tropical paradise. This place is ideal to every human being who seeks escape from the reality of a stressful job, who seeks to pamper themselves, who seeks adventure, and who needs enough brainwashing (emptying their minds through meditation with peaceful and tranquil environment). This place is also perfect for lovers who needs to unwind and spend some romantic time, and I mean lovers of all ages; you might be new lovers or lovers for decades. If you are a company or a group of 20, 50, 100 or more people, then this place is just right for you! There has already been a lot of team/company outing that was being held at Virgin Beach and that is because of the amenities and its enough space that could cater up to 300 people (in my own estimate). You can actually have a lot of activities there for your team, and I am sure not a single person would get bored (unless that person is a loner); see their amenities as shown below. For families, yes indeed this place is perfect for families. The pool is the favorite place of the children.
How To Get There: From Cebu City take a cab going to the North Bus Station. At the bus station, you can choose different bus companies but I prefer Ceres Tours (for safety and comfort). Take the Maya-Bagay route and tell the bus driver or conductor to drop you off at the corner going to Virgin Beach Resort in Malbago, Daanbantayan. From the national road going to the resort, you can ride a motorbike (habal2x) for 50Php (good for 2 pax already).
If you cannot find an aircon bus with Maya-Bagay route and you prefer aircon bus, you can just ride an Aircon Bus with any route going to Bogo, but be sure to transfer to another bus (Maya-Bagay Route) when you arrive in Bogo City.
For private vehicles, it is best if you bring a map with you if you are not familiar with the place. The place is located in Malbago, Daanbantayan, Cebu.
Accommodation and Amenities: Virgin Beach Resort’s Superior Room
The Swimming Pool
Mini Wall Climb with Zip
Entertainment Hall (movies, karaoke, board games, mini stage)
Island Hopping (Malapascua & Capitancillo Island)
The Food: Virgin Beach Resort offers a wide variety of food in their restaurant. From Filipino to American dishes. They give excellent value to food. Here are some images of their food: Chicken Afritada
Chopsuey and Chicken Tinola
I love my overall experience in Virgin Beach Resort and I would highly recommend the resort to those who seek a break from his/her usual routine in life. I guarantee that you will really enjoy your stay at the Virgin Beach Resort!
