as I said, the sun came out as soon as we got to
Tagbilaran port. I thought it's an indication
of good things to come. Sure did.
Teary eyed, I immediately fixed myself
and looked around for our resort service while Teresa kept herself busy getting brochures of resorts and other attractions in the island. As soon as I stepped out of the terminal, the driver was waiting for us. We were the only guests to be fetched that time, 9am so it felt more of an exclusive service. Gave me a lot of chances to talk to the driver and ask millions of questions about the area. Twas a smooth 15-20 minute ride to Bohol Bee Farm Resort and Restaurant.
The moment you enter the vicinity, you immediately have this homey feeling. The place is beautifully nestled in a quiet area and there are trees all around. My idea for a retreat. I think I mentioned several times that I want to loose myself in an anonymous place where I cam leave all my worries behind. Well, this is it. Sorry for the comparison but reminds me of Sonya's Garden minus the congestion. Here, you will really feel that you are at peace with nature.
the eggplant room.....
now you know why it's called the eggplant room....haha
As I was saying, instead of downgrading our room, they allowed us to stay in the bungalow at barn rate. Cool. That is even without me asking. Thanks a lot.
We immediately unpacked our things and explored the vicinity. Going trough the trees is like going trough a maze with a lot of surprises in store. Bohol Bee Farm is simply amazing!!!
We finally realized that we were starving so we ordered some lunch. The menu book looks plain with no pictures at all so I ordered something generic like Spare Ribs and Honey-Glazed Chicken. Both served with organic red rice, ginger bread and organic garden salad so we just added Peanut Butter Shake and fresh buko juice for our drinks.
As a bonus, they even have this Spacious Wooded Platform Right At The Beach for sun Bathing And Lounging . We spent a few minutes here after eating lunch in the restaurant nearby. A good place to enjoys the sound of the waves as it hits the cliffs. Very good for relaxing.
On our way to Panglao Island Nature Resort ans Spa (PINR) and back, our driver told us a lot of tales about bee farm and Ms Vicky. The employees in bee farm are well treated, properly compensated. They feel part of a big family. I guess that's the reason why people are innately kind.
Sure enough, the decision was a good one. Will tell you more on the next post. cheers!!!
note: I would like to thank my friend Chyng for all the tips. Really helped a lot. We might have missed a lot of things if not for you. And, we stayed in the same room pala. Odd, hehe. Thanks again.
