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!

The lush green, sulfur spring and challenging falls are a must see attractions here. Also, don't forget to dip in the natural thermal pool after hiking the 7 falls. Your body will definitely thank you. The food is forgettable so don't expect to much. Go here for the adventure and not the food.

Mambukal Mountain Resort came as a surprise since I've always though about it as an overly hyped nature resort with not much to see/do. Loved their warm dipping pool and the trek to the falls. Wildlife photography enthusiasts are also in for a treat as flying foxes hang around the resort's tall trees.

What a great place. Hot springs, waterfall water swimming pools and fruit bats. I've been going here since the 80's as a child and it has really improved recently. A must visit if you are on Negros Island.

This place is an hour (or less?) bus ride from Bacolod City. The entrance is cheap (P50) so it suites budget travelers. Here you'll find hot springs (one you can swim in and one you can boil eggs with...lol), big falls, japanese spas, a little lake, mini falls and a lot more! It is a haven for flying foxes as...

Best Natural Hot Spring. Great way to relax. Some say the hot spring is medicinal and good for the health. The restaurant(Food court type?) are also something we look forward going there. flowers.... fruits.... They also have pool and cabanas if you want to sleep there.
