I am making this review because, I truly believe that Labason has a great potential to be considered as one of Philippines’ tourist destination. Why? As I have mentioned in my first article about our pride Bayangan Island, this town has beaches that can be compared to other known resorts in ASIA. The Philippines is indeed a land of the sea and sand. Everywhere, you can find places with outstanding beauty.
In this small town, the building of the resorts, and pools is a sign of productivity. So let me introduce one new resort here in Labason that I think deserves popularity, not only here in Zamboanga del Norte, but to all tourists who happens to visit the neighboring towns and cities.
Bayangan Island Resort is not literally located in Bayangan Island. It is situated in Barangay Osukan. Perhaps, they just named it after the island because the resort area is fronting bayangan island. The resort has available air conditioned rooms, rates range from 600 to 1,200 pesos. The place is ideal for couples or family who wants to spend a night here or just come here to relax, bond, to swim and enjoy the day.
What I like about the place is that; they have plenty of shower rooms, so no overcrowding when taking a shower. One unique attraction of the place for me is the “Grotto of Virgin Mary”. The water in the pool is crystal clear, the kid’s pool, though smaller, it provides convenience for the parents to check and reach the children’s pool. From the terrace, you will have a bird’s eye view of the ocean and the Bayangan Island itself. They also have a small but nice cafeteria. I just hope that next visit; they will already have available food choices and drinks as the caretaker has promised.
The resort is nice, and the kids really enjoyed the visit. It is indeed an ideal place for family bonding or for those vacationers or maybe traveller who needs a place to stay for the night.
