“Awesome place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Terra Manna is worth the distance. From Cebu, it will take about 3 hours if you take the bus. We spent half a day in Kawasan Falls and decided to stay overnight in Terra Manna. We were just in time to witness the beautiful sunset. It's definitely the place to go to after a busy week from work. Not much people stay here.Nothing much to do but you'll definitely love it there!

We stayed and went glamping. They have tents available for a very reasonable price which includes breakfast. After dinner, we went to our campsite and had bonfire plus the weather was very much cooperative and gave us a sky full of stars.

The next day, we woke up early to take a morning swim and had breakfast afterwards. We stayed around until noon before coming back to the city.

I talked with the owner and have learned from her that all of their staff are locals. It's her own way of helping the community of Badian. So, don't expect to get a 5-star resort kind of service. But they're all respectful, nice and willing to serve you as much as they can. Just let them know what you need.

The place to be. We stayed there for 2 nights last july1 and 2, 2013. Travel from cebu city took us around 3 hours. Upon arriving at badian market, we took trike going to terra menna. Quite a distantplace. But the resort is worth visiting. A neatly organized garden. A nice sea view, an access to the beach. Lots of greens and blues and yellos and red. 15 minute walk away from the resort is anice white sand beach (lambug beach). Going to the beach, we took the narrow road. Going back to the resort, givig favor to my adventurous side, we walk the shoreline of the beach. There, we hadnice view of the beach, nice rock formation. If you want to walk along the shoreline, do it in the afternoon, during low tide.

We chose bahay kubo as our accommodation. The best. Advise though, bring mosquito repellant. It was nice wak8ng up in the morning hearing birds chirping. And stepping outside our kubo, is a beautiful view of sun kissing the ocean, and a nice garden.

There are many things to say, but the keyword is awesome. Totally awesome.

It's beach allows for a spectacular sunset and the waters are really steady so its good to have a look at what's below. You can even request for a bonfire at night before lights off =) Since I went on my own and not familiar with the area, I was picked up at the bus stop and was dropped off until I got on the bus back to Cebu proper.

the danish owners attention to detail and customer service is amazing. the only advice I'd offer is to let staff know in advance dinner plans so can have cook ready ( as there are no formal nor really casual restaurants in town of Badian) this is important. Also inquire in advance if BYOB as may not have bar open. Has very small but very nice white sand beach area. The view from the outdoor living room near the restaurant is unbeatable

Room Tip: checked all 4 rooms out and camped. all the rooms very nice . Open air Coral room probably my favori...

i've been to this place in april with my family. we were lucky to be there with no other guest on the resort. we had fun the whole day. it was like we owned the place for a while. the staffs were friendly, the place was like paradise, the beach was clean, you can light a bonfire at night, the breakfast was superb! everything else was near perfect except for one thing... we didn't get enough sleep! i was aware that we will be sleeping in a tent becoz i was told so, in fact i was excited at the thought of sleeping in a tent becoz it will be my first time. i didn't realize that it could be so hot in a tent becoz the air can't get inside.

we were also unfortunate becoz there was electricity interruption which started at 7pm and lasted for 6 hours. too bad they don't have a standby generator power. it was too hot to stay inside the tent. we tried to sleep in their little bamboo house, it was like a little kiosk but the mosquitoes were feasting on us!

when we checked out the next morning, i told the frontdesk officer about our stay that night. it was only then that we were informed that we could have rented an electric fan (when the electricity came back) to be placed outside the tent. too late, we have already checked out.

Their receptionist are very accommodating they give us welcome drinks and tour us around the property. Very good for solo, group of family. Our camp is oceanview that is facing Tañon Strait that gives a great view on sunset. They also offers Free Breakfast. the Rates for the tents are good. The Place is awesome, a very good place to contemplate, photography, soul searching, stargazing...

The only thing that I dont like is our dinner, the cost did not compensate the food. they have sweet and sour that we dont have any idea that is because they are far from civilization or that is that they know about that recipe.
