Negros Occidental: Campuestohan Highland Resort

TRAVEL DATE: January 2, 2013 

Campuestohan Highland Resort is located in between the mountain ranges of Bacolod City and Talisay City, Negros Occidental. It is a newly created highland resort to offer more sights and places for tourists visiting the province.

You can visit the place from either two routes, one from Brgy. Alangilan in Bacolod City, and the other one is through Concepcion, Talisay City. From Bacolod City, it is roughly an hour ride.

TRAVEL TIP: Better to bring your own car because there is no local transportation yet going to the resort and the roads are still not yet furnished. Bring some anti-dizziness medication if you have low tolerance on rough roads.

The place looks clean, fresh, and relaxing because of the mountains that surround the highland resort and the picturesque view of Bacolod City from afar. You will surely realize how rich and untouched the Philippines is.

On the eastern side of the resort, facing the mountains, they have the "Lord of the Rings / Hobbit-like houses" that served as their overnight cottages for tourists. It's like a piece of New Zealand to which the movie was taken and surely it was superb!

Together with the Avengers, they also have the most epic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Michael Jordan, and Elvis Presley. They also mounted a "ruined-like scenery" that served as the background of the life-size figures.

Beside the "Hobbit-like" cabins you can find a dinosaur which will make you feel like going back to the "Land Before Time". Cool, huh?

On the western side of the resort, they have their 5ft. swimming pool, children's playground, and some cool life-size statues. Since it was the Holiday Season, they featured Santa Claus and some of his reindeers that served as the resort's center of attraction.

TRAVEL TIP: The resort doesn't serve much food yet so better bring your own packed lunch or dinner and of course, don't forget to bring refreshments to hydrate yourself under the sun's heat.

  3. A great place. Your photos are truly wonderful. Actually, we have been hearing about this place and so I googled them and I stumbled on their website at When I was done browsing through their site, I called one of their numbers and made a reservation. We actually went up there last Wednesday, June 12, and I must say the place is really great for a family get-together. Aside from the cool atmosphere, we enjoyed the majestic views of the nearby rainforest and the distant horizon. Simply amazing!
