Ocean 24 Resort - Let's Get Hot!

Yes! You're thinking right! I literally meant HOT. Since the weather is starting to get cold, swimming activities are no longer our options to spend out getaways with friends and families. Mostly, we do indoor parties and hang outs. 
There are two swimming pools - adult and kiddie pools.

 
The weather here is quite cold and windy. I shiver everytime I went out of the pool.
The air is humid and saturated. Look at that damp hair. errr
But no way! We have thermal spas and baths as our options. Among places in the Philippines, Negros Oriental is blessed with one. A Geothermal plant is located nearby. The place is safe and away from the hazardous chemical steam from the nearby plant.
I stiched these three photos to give you all the information ;-)
It was one beautiful (about to rain) Sunday, when the four of us went to visit Ocean 24 Hot Spring. It's a swimming pool developed to provide a very good thermal bath. It is in Caidiocan, Valencia, Negros Oriental. That's 26 km away from Dumaguete City, Philippines. Click HERE to know the place. I bet few of you guys who have been to a thermal swimming pool. Jacuzzi is no way to compare to a big thermal pool like Ocean 24 Resort. 

Shall I tour you around the place? The resort is not quite WELL-developed, but it's promising. Better be here while the entrance fee is cheap, right?! ;-)
These are the Rubber chairs for Umbrella cottages.
This is Walter. He's our photographer. He's 6'4, so he can definitely captures those scenic view. lol
This is Bacteria. He's posing in the resort's humble parking area.
This is blogger Xoxo_Grah posing before the Umbrella Cottages.

Behind us (Walter and Bacteria) are the Bamboo Cottages.
Of course, water activity. lol
There's no need for a swimming suit, because the pool is not chlorinated. It's also clean, because the water i's from a mountain spring. It's free flowing from the source to the pool and exit to the river.
It was raining the whole afternoon. We opted to stay under the swimming pool, and talked anything under the SUN? no under the rain. ;-) We're all talkative and hilarious, so boredom has no place.
The resort's cottages are named after signature brands.
We're actually hungry. We finished what was left from our lunch. We're so cold as well.
We're about to leave, so I took photos for my facebook friends.
I was wearing orange earlier. This one is hot pink.
The water is really hot, but not boiling. The first time you try to submerge, the water may be a little bit scalding. The cold weather is actually perfect if you visit Ocean 24 Resort. If ever you prefer summer days, I strongly suggest that you go there in the afternoon. 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you find and enjoy a thermal bath this cold season.


Just me,
Phioxee




P.S Thanx to Walter for some of the photos. As always dong, thank you.

  8. Good to know there is a thermal spa in that resort, enough to stay lukewarm underwater when wind starts blowing hard. The place is interesting, I can picture out this resort as an area where you can still be at the best of both world- meaning nature at its best while immersing to the physical facilities that this resort provide. I hope one day, I can visit Negros...it's a long delayed desire until now still not realized.
