This is a review about the talk of the town, I guess. I was curious of that “amazing place”that they have mentioned. And you won’t even believe a thing that I just wrote on the title of this post, right? The cool thing about this adventure is that we had the whole place to ourselves and relaxation is really our mantra of the day. Oh yeah!

Arrrgh. I’m ‘zi Pirate who just ruined a pair of wayfarer sunglasses. Great landscape view at Damires’ Hills!

It’s all green.

Going up to this place of wonder takes about an hour from the city via a local jeepney transport and of course a short rocky road tricycle drive from the Janiuay Plaza. It was a gloomy Thursday morning when we packed our things and went off for a trek. It’s a weekday so we really expected a few guests at the resort and surprisingly, we were the ONLY guests there! Me and my friends RJ and Lica had a great and happy time chillaxin’ and embracing nature’s beauty. Drama? Nah! :D

One of the cottages.

It was a place of lush green grass, tropical trees and fruit trees, blooming flowers, fresh air, and vast rice plantation. It looks as  though every photograph is a postcard shot in every single angle. The pool amazingly caught our eyes including the contrast of the blue and green. Not your typical scene compared to a seascape back, but it works. The resort has a lot of huts to get acquainted to, cottages and a bar for convenience. They even have rooms for night bookings. Such a place to collect your inner peace.

Oh and the FOOD was great and very affordable! Coffee and “turon” worked best for me! Haha. Did I mention that they haveziplines there too? Oh how wonderful life is if it thrives with simplicity.

Good thing we don’t have an underwater cam. Else, you’ll see my body “flaws” (fats) lol!

The pool and us.

If you are feeling stressed, a few ways to make you feel better is a quick dive on a hill, friends, and comfort foods. Don’t mind my brown bikini. I seriously hate the fact that my well-carved abs are still hidden beneath my abdominal adipose tissues! 😆

Janiuay is 30 minutes away from Iloilo City. In order to reach Damires Hills, you can take a jeepney at Ungka Terminal with a fare of Php 30. In the town of Janiuay, hire a tricycle going to Brgy. Damires and the driver will take you there in no less than 10 minutes. 🙂
