Gatubod Spring Resort | Review

In a tropical country like ours, cold spring resorts are really helpful to escape the heat. No wonder why mountain resorts are thriving nowadays. One is Gatubod Spring Resort in Compostela, Cebu.

Gatubod Spring Resort is located in Barangay Basak, Compostela, Cebu. It’s actually just one kilometer away from our house. This resort is owned by the famous Quiño clan in the town who also happens to own Green Lagoon Park.

The Resort:

The resort has three pools. The first pool is what welcomes you upon entering. It has a depth of 7ft. The second pool is the kids’ pool which also serves as the launching pool for the slides. The third one is the widest and has a depth of 2ft to 6ft. It also has a mini waterfall for those who wanted a water-massage.

The resort has two long slides that guests could enjoy. As of this writing, they have the longest slide in the northern Cebu. During our last visit, only one slide is operational due to some accidents and complains about the steepness and shape of the slide.

There are cottages for rent and tables for rent but no rooms for overnight stays.

No corkage. Grilling station is also available.

They have a wide car park across the resort.

REVIEW:

Gatubod Spring Resort like Green Lagoon Park is also a family-oriented resort. However, it could be crowded during weekends and holidays. My advice is to book in advance or go early.

They don’t have rooms or at least lockers to leave your important belongings. Therefore, you have to take turns in swimming so someone could look after your things.

The resort doesn’t have a restaurant so better bring your own food. Good thing because there is no corkage fee. 😀

 The staffs are friendly and approachable.

How To Get There:

*From Sm/Mandaue, just ride a jeepney or bus going to Compostela or Danao. Ask the driver to drop you off in Compostela Public Market or in Guimbal, corner going to Virginia Foods Inc.. There are motorcycles for hire (habal-habal) and will take you to the resort. The travel from the market is 15-20 minutes.

More Information:

 *Entrance Fee — Php30 (Kids) / Php60 (Adult)

*Cottages: Ranges from Php250 – Php500

*No corkage

12 Songs I Wish I Could Sing For Him.

And suddenly, all the love songs were about you.

20170518_172924
One year down!

Okay, so today is our anniversary. I want to sing him a love song but my voice makes it sound like a nursery rhyme. 😥

I have to admit it, singing was one of my BIGGEST frustrations until life hit me and made me realize that I was just adding ‘problem’ to the society. 😀 Anyway, yeah I did not finish the song because I don’t want to make the hubby sick.

 

Daot, if I could sing for you once more, here’s 12 songs I wish I to sing:

1. THIS IS WHY I NEED YOU ~~ Jesse Ruben

You make my weakness less weak.
You make the bottom less deep.
You make the waiting feel shorter.
You make my crazy feel normal, every time.
You are the who, love is the what, and this is the why. 

 2. PILLOWTALK ~~ Zayn Malik

Nobody but you, ‘body but me
‘Body but us, bodies together
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you

3. COLD WATER ~~ Major Lazer (feat. Justin Bieber & MO)

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

4. SAY YOU WON’T LET GO ~~ James Arthur

I’m gonna love you till
My lungs give out.
I promise till death we part like in our vows.
So I wrote this song for you, now everybody knows
‘Cause now it’s just you and me till we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

5. LET ME LOVE YOU ~~ DJ Snake (feat. Justin Bieber)

Don’t fall asleep
At the wheel, we’ve got a million miles ahead of us
Miles ahead of us
All that we need
Is a rude awakening to know we’re good enough
Know we’re good enough

6. PERFECT STRANGERS ~~ Jonas Blue (feat. JP Cooper)

Who knows the secret tomorrow will hold?
We don’t really need to know
‘Cause you’re here with me now, I don’t want you to go
You’re here with me now, I don’t want you to go

7. THINKING OUT LOUD ~~ Ed Sheeran

Darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

8. ALL OF ME ~~ John Legend

Cause all of me, loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges,
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning

9. SWEET CREATURE ~~ Harry Styles

Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of road, you bring me home

10. SHAPE OF YOU ~~ Ed Sheeran

I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

11. IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW ~~ Brett Young

You’ve got all of me
I belong to you
Yeah, you’re my everything

In case you didn’t know
I’m crazy bout you
I would be lying if I said
That I could live this life without you

12. ISSUES ~~ Julia Michaels

‘Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you.
