There were a lot of different views from clients who visited the resort since their soft opening. Honestly, I also experienced a not so nice experience during our last visit. However, in light with some of the negative feedback, there are also signs that they are working hard to raise the level of their services. The staff are mainly locals of the city and are doing their best to be professional and helpful to the resort’s visitors, though apparently, they needed more training. Aside from this, the elderly can enjoy the place with the help of golf carts that the resort provides.
The resort aims to give its visitors’ great experience of the local scenery. To accomplish this, a lot of developments are still undergoing in the resort to better serve their clients. These includes:
- Glamping site
The glamping site of Ilaya Highland Resort can be an enjoyable experience for the kids. The site will be located behind the restaurant.
- Balinese-themed villas
This will be a big development for the resort since it will help them accommodate clients who want to stay overnight.
The entrance fee only costs 200 pesos per head and you can rent the resort’s canopy tent for 500 pesos. If you have kids with you who are three feet below in height, their entrance fee is waived.
Be reminded of the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”. The resort can be strict when it comes to their customs so make sure you are well informed of these and it would be best if you coordinate things appropriately with them to have an enjoyable day at Ilaya.
