The mountains of Cebu are famous for having some of the most picturesque and breathtaking views. Many businesses have taken advantage of the relaxing atmosphere in these areas and provide beautiful tourist spots for everyone to enjoy. One good example is the Ring Resthouse in Tisa.
Located in the barangay’s mountainous areas, this is among the lesser-known budget hotels in Cebu City with a swimming pool. It has a view and there’s more than one pool to choose from.
A tricycle will cost you less than ₱50 to and from, but you will have to take a short walk to the resort’s entrance.
So what makes Ring Resthouse a great find?
For one thing, it gives you a sense of privacy and a great view of the city that you won’t otherwise find in other mountain resorts or establishments.
There are two swimming pools, one for adults and one for kids. They are 4 to 6 feet deep, with platforms on the side for you to jump from.
The location, which is pretty close to the city, makes it ideal for summer weekend getaways.
Several cottages and tables right next to the pool can accommodate a variety of groups. If you and your friends are looking for an affordable day use pool in Cebu City, this place will definitely fit your budget.
There’s a minibar and a grilling station if you want to cook. Take note that there is a ₱100 corkage fee for soft drinks. They also have a live band performing every night to make evenings a little more exciting. They also plan to open a soundproof karaoke room in the future.
