Lava Mountain River Farm: A Perfect Spot for Soul Searching in Cebu

Tucked in a secluded part of Cebu City, with travelers given a treat of landscape views, of farms full of blossoming red roses and white chrysanthemums, or perhaps hanging violet eggplants on the way. Its challenging rocky path is all worth it when you finally lie under one of the farm’s Balinese inspired open-air loft, gazing at the blinking stars, listening to the crickets and wild creatures around the surrounding, gently pulling the edges of the white thick linens to cover yourself.

The signal bars are blank and no wifi zones around. This is definitely a perfect place to unwind, the literal meaning of getting away from the busy city streets and escape the sound of beeping notifications on your mobile phone.

The perfect definition of detoxification from the internet and the city pollution.

Lava Mountain River Farm is a four-hectare mango farm and private villa which has its own free-flowing swimming pool, villa huts, rock house and lounge which can accommodate a group of at least eight. There are several things that can be done inside the farm like river trekking towards a waterfall, swimming at its free-flowing swimming pool, bon fire at night, watch fireflies flicker its light and move among the mango trees, get a good massage, read a book or sleep under the tree on a hammock or simply just do nothing but appreciate nature!

True serenity, offers pure relaxation and nature appreciation!

It is highly recommended that you don’t miss waking up early in the morning as nature unfolds its beauty, from fog sitting beneath coconut trees and other lush greenery surrounding the mountains to sun rays striking through the farm’s yellow bell flowers, the clucking of in-house Serama roosters to the clear sound of the river water rush breaking into its rocks, this is definitely a serenity you would love to go back every now and then.
