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

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


Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort (San Fernando, Cebu, Philippines)

Hidden Paradise Mountain Resort is located in Barangay Ilaya, San Fernando town in Southern Metro Cebu, Philippines. The resort features several swimming pools, hotel rooms, conference facilities, a restaurant, and other recreational amenities.

Hidden Valley Mountain Resort and Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort (Pinamungajan, Cebu, Philippines)

The Hidden Valley Mountain Resort and the Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort are two resorts owned and managed by the Lamac Multi-Purpose Cooperative. Both resorts are located in Barangay Lamac, Pinamungajan town in Midwestern Cebu, Philippines. 

The Hidden Valley Wave Pool Resort is the first of its kind in the entire Cebu province. It only opened recently last December 18, 2014. Currently, the resort is still adding several other features such as 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 training or conference facilities.



Paradise Valley Mountain Resort (Barili, Cebu, Philippines)

Paradise Valley Mountain Resort is located in Barangay Paril, Barili town in midwestern Cebu, Philippines. The resort did some aggressive marketing in the 90's as they had frequent commercials on television then.


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