VISITING CEBU CLUB FORTMED RESORT, BOLJOON, CEBU (Updated 2016)
To visit at least two new places (each year) I’ve never been before is always part of the goals I set for myself. And with my consultancy business, this goal just comes easy.In fact, I considered traveling each time I would conduct a seminar as part of the compensation package.
Recently, I conducted another training for the Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) for their staff in Boljoon, Cebu Area.
The venue of the training was Cebu Club FortMed Resort. I suppose the place was one of the best place offered by Boljoon.
As always, NWTF really treated me very well. Miss Mercy Panisa would always make sure that I am fed well…I really appreciate her buying me healthy food, sugar-free coffee, is theetc. They also gave me the best Villa of the resort which was located right in front of the pool and beachfront. In fact, I learned from the resort staff that my cis theone being used by the owner whenever they visited the resort.
The resort is home to many foreigners who visited Boljoon to dive.
While the sea was very inviting because of it’s clear water, I wasn’t able to take even a dip because I was always tired in my entire stay for I was conducting a seminar. Besides, It seemed quite awkward to think that I would face my participants in my business attire in one time and they would see me in my trunks after a while. Well, maybe if I have the body to flaunt — I might have plunged into the pool or sea water, hahaha.
After the three days training and while all the participants went home, I thought of dipping into the pool in front of my room. But I noticed that the pool wasn’t really that clear…hmmm maybe the filter was not working very well. So I decided to just stay on the veranda of my cottage and edit my photos.One thing I like about the place is the smell of citronella oil which they put in their lanterns all over the place- for the mosquitoes.
While I like their staff because of their warmth, but I guess the resort owners should invest on training them as they seemed to confuse at times what to do. I like their food, it’s not really spectacular but they taste well, especially their native chicken tinola. They just have limited choices on their menu and they don’t have an intercom installed in their rooms so don’t expect for a room service…Their resto closes early too! 🙁 So better armed yourself with food if you are the type who used to the midnight snack.
