Little Santorini Mountain Resort: Liloan’s Hidden Hotspot

Little Santorini is a hidden resort in the mountainous areas of Liloan, perfect for any occasion.

The luscious green mountains of Cebu are ideal spots for trekking, camping, and exploring. The cold breeze and the magnificent view make it a perfect weekend vacation spot.

This kind of atmosphere has inspired all sorts of establishments to set up resorts situated within the island’s many mountain ranges. The Cebu Transcentral Highway has many visitors because of the abundance of these relaxing spots, but the northern municipality of Liloan also has one that is frequented by many.

The Little Santorini Mountain Resort is located 20 kilometers away from Cebu City. It is inspired by the island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea, a Greek tourist spot where one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history took place, which left a crater of ash several meters deep.

This mountain resort is inspired by the beauty and overlooking view of Santorini, Greece.

The recreational hotspot borrowed the iconic white architecture of the famous Greek island, with its facade, walls, and amenities covered in whitewashed stone.

The resort’s main attraction is their two swimming pools. The main pool is big and spacious, perfect for a casual swim. You can lounge in the poolside while enjoying the view of the sunset behind the lush green mountains.

LITTLE SANTORINI AMENITIES

Not many resorts in northern Cebu offer breathtaking views such as this one.

The kiddie pool is right above the main one, with a small slide set in the middle.

Even the kids can enjoy the amenities of this awe-inspiring Liloan resort.

Just like other mountain resorts in Cebu, you can book an overnight stay here. The beautiful architecture paired with a mountainous backdrop makes it a photogenic location.

Be aware that the resort is usually packed on weekends and holidays, so if you want a more peaceful experience, it’s best to visit the place during the weekdays.

This mountain resort in Liloan can be packed with people, as it's a great place to bring your friends and family.

Little Santorini is definitely a place to visit when passing by the mountainous parts of Liloan.

The town of Liloan is where you will find the famous Titay’s, also known as the Queen of Cebuano delicacies – they are particularly known for their Rosquillos. However, the town is more than just a place to get some snacks. You can also visit other hotspots like Papa Kits, the Dragonfruit Farm, and the Bagacay Lighthouse.

The Little Santorini Mountain Resort is definitely a great attraction with its combination of beautiful aesthetics and fun atmosphere. The road trip to the destination is already a rewarding experience in itself, and it’s a great stopover for those residing in the northern part of Cebu or for anyone who’s looking to have an out of town mini vacation.

You can bring your friends and family and bask in the beauty of the island’s skyline. This is also a great addition to the many things you can do in the uphill areas of Cebu. Whether you’re interested in a quick swim or a quiet afternoon in the mountains, this family-friendly resort will be all you need and more.
