You need to book best at least a day before, although during the week you maybe able to get in without much notice; as the space is limited and the owner Esoy and his wife want you to have a chance for private time in any of the three pools. The number of pools varies depending on the season (up... More

Tranquility , quiet, in touch with nature. Bring plenty of mosquito repellant cause you are in the woods. Wear water shoes my feet were jacked up after climbing on the rocks with my bare feet. Cash Only site!!!! Take a taxi there no motorbike and have the taxi wait.

Esoy is about 15 KMs in to the mountains from Catmon and approximately 60 KMs from CEbu City along the National Highway. A truly amazing hot spring resort which is completely hidden from the commercial areas. Very peaceful setting amidst beautiful mountains and you can book this place all for yourself. It's a must visit attraction. The bonus is the... More

We got to walk across a broken (but still strong) wooden/rope bridge and we got to jump into different pools of water and swim as much and as long as... More

There is entry fees ( locals different than foreigners) you can contact the numbers in the photos below for more info. Hot spring very limited due to 3 years back... More

We went to Esoy last year and the owner was really friendly. The hot spring was soothing. I wouldn't recommend using your waterproof cam here because mine got totally busted. :( But anyway, you could go trekking and if you further down the end you can jump from their waterfall! If you are looking for a mini adventure then this... More

A lot of fun for both old and young. Very safety minded as you can see in the pictures. We had 16 family members and some of them were stretched beyond their comfort level a little bit. Great place to visit!

when we were there the first pool was empty. only one pool available and it wasnt even hot, just a little warm. nothing new with the place, nothing that impressed us. it was really boring. it needs a lot of improvement. a waste of money and time. wouldnt recommend it .
