Hidden Valley, Hidden Paradise, Paradise Valley: Which is Which?

It's funny how there are three mountain resorts in adjacent towns in Central Cebu that have almost similar names. It is not difficult to interchange and be confused with the names of these places. So for the interest of the confused tourist, let's take a look at these 3 mountain hideouts: Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort, Hidden Valley Wave Pool and Mountain Resort, and Paradise Valley Mountain Resort. And no, all 3 businesses are separately owned and managed. By the way, credits for the blog post idea goes to Janine Ella Anongos. She left a comment in a previous blog post stating she got confused which mountain resort is located in which town in Cebu.


Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort 

Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort is located in San Fernando, Cebu. The mountain resort features several swimming pools, hotel rooms, and conference facilities. They also have a full-service restaurant and other recreational amenities. This place really gives guests great privacy. It is very secluded hideout in the mountains of San Fernando. It is a good place to take a break from the spoils of the urban environment.

Hidden Valley Resorts

The Hidden Valley Mountain Resort and the Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort are two entities owned and managed by the Lamac Multi-Purpose Cooperative. Both places are located in Lamac, Pinamungajan, Cebu. 

The Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort is the first of its kind in the entire Cebu province. It only opened recently last 18 December 2014. The highlight here is a spring-fed wave pool. Waves in the swimming pool is generated by a machine. Currently, they is still adding hotel rooms and an open air spa. Plans are also made for a skybike and zipline.

On the other hand, the Hidden Valley Mountain Resort has been in operation for the past 17 years. It has several swimming pools, hotel rooms, and conference facilities.




Paradise Valley Mountain Resort 

Paradise Valley Mountain Resort is located in Paril, Barili, Cebu. The business did some aggressive marketing in the 90's. They had frequent commercials on local television back then.


So there, Hopefully this post helps in addressing some of the confusion.
