Visited February 2009. Roughly 30-45 minutes south of Bacolod City. It’s a good idea to rent out transportation for the day, leave early in the morning for Mambukal, and then come back in the afternoon/evening. We rented out a jeepney for roughly 2,000 pesos and brought some food to cook. There’s quite a bit to do here at Mambukal, all on cash basis, with relatively low fees. Per the website: Hotel Rooms, Water Falls, Swimming Pools, Function Hall, Therapeutic Warm Dipping Pool, Picnic Huts, Overnight Cottages, Food Court, Bat Watching, Boating, Wall Climbing, Slide for Life, Canopy Walk, and Camping Ground.http://www.mambukalhaven.com/location.htmlFirst we rented one of the picnic huts and started cooking. After we ate, we checked out the water fall, swimming pool, therapeutic warm dipping pool, boating lagoon and bat watching ….Picnic Huts – Nice views with a stand to grill and a sink wash your hands. The water comes directly from the falls.Water Fall – I’d say about it’s about a 30 minute hike to the first waterfall, over uneven ground and a single pipe railing to hold on to. Certainly a workout, I wouldn’t recommend this to the less-adventurous. There are a total of 6 or 7 waterfalls you can hike to, each one a less safe hike than the one before. You should at least hike to the first waterfall, it will be worth the trip. Bat Watching – You can see the bats hanging down from the tall trees in the distance from just about anywhere on the resort. They have specific ‘bat watching’ signs though, on the route to the first waterfall. Boating – You can rent a kayak for 30 minutes to an hour, good for 5 or 6 people per kayak. Life vests and two paddles are provided. Nice lagoon, lots of fun and good exercise. Swimming Pool – Cool water, large pool area. Like any other swimming pool except that this water is from the falls!Therapeutic Warm Dipping Pool – Like a hot shower on a cold day, but in ‘pool’ form. If you’re not used to the hot water just give your body time to adjust and sink lower and lower …. The resort was lots of fun, don’t forget the suntan lotion. Easily took up a whole day. A must visit if you are in Negros!

We had heard so much of this resort when we we went to Bacolod last April 2015 so we decided to hit the place. The forest-like feel of the resort makes you want to relax and experience the beauty of nature. There are swimming pools, spa, restos, hot spring and of course the trekking of the 7 falls. We had...

This is a nature park up on Murcia, Negros Occ. You can do all nature trekking here. Bee honey are sold within the area (I doubt if it is a true honey, knowing that Negros is sugar capital or say molasses capital in the country). Molasses looks like a honey. What I love so much here is the hot spring.

Every year we visit the Philippines, my family visits Bacolod since it's where my mother comes from. We always go to Mambukal, ever since I was a very young child. It's not too far from everything, but it makes you feel as if you're way far away from your busy life. It's not expensive and you can make use of... More

Locals come to Mambukal for a retreat from the busy city of Bacolod. Rent a house near the man made lake and enjoy 2 swimming pools around the premises. There is a full service spa called Blade on the grounds as well. Watch the bats forage for food during sunset while soaking in the sulfur hot spring.

Mambukal mountain resort is definitely a highly recommended place to visit if you're in Negros! You'll love everything it has to offer - 7 Falls, Hot Sulfur Springs, Butterfly Santuary, Japanese Dipping Pool, Ziplines are just some of our favorites. Even before we were married, my husband and I often visited Mambukal whenever we have time. Now that we have... More

Lots to do in the place. You can drive in or take public transportation to go here. There are cottages and air-conditioned rooms available for rent. There are a couple of "canteens" here if you didn't pack food. You have to advance book though if you plan to stay overnight. There are a couple of pools to choose from. The... More

Mambukal Resort has been around for years already, which is why you will find a heritage site inside the compound - a spa built by a Japanese architect. There are many attractions inside - pools, lakes, butterfly garden, picnic areas, hiking areas, camping grounds, etc. You will find bats living here. There is also a natural hot spring that is...

The hot springs and water falls were good. But their other activities were closed like zip line, wall climbing, boating and the first to fifth falls.
