Spring Park Mountain Resort - Lutopan Toledo City, Cebu

I spent a portion of my life living on the hills of Lutopan Toledo City. This humble barangay is located South of Cebu and it will only take you 1 1/2 hours to get there. I always remember Lutopan having a cool climate because of the number of trees surrounding the place. People there are simple and as early as 6 or 7pm, the streets are already quiet. Though we completely left the place after everyone moved to the city, we still have our house there and some of our relatives. 

I usually bring my wife to Lutopan especially if we want to unwind and relax from our busy lives in the City.


The rusty signage attest the time it endured. 
A good place to stay in Lutopan is the Spring Park Mountain Resort, located in 157 R. Duterte St. Cantabaco Toledo City. Though not your ordinary resort considering the place is old, it is still decent and provides an acceptable services to their visitors. I remember my aunt spent their wedding reception here years ago, it was the first event Spring Park Mountain Resort hosted. Compared to the resort's condition years ago, the place is quite different now with old fixtures, unattended pathways, empty pool, empty fishing pond and bushy surroundings, this might not be your ideal resort. 

























However if you are like me who is into simplicity and tranquility, this place should be perfect. Despite Spring Park Mountain Resort's bare grandeur, the plants, the cold water from the natural spring, and the music from the singing birds are more than enough to fill your longing for a laid-back life, even for a day or two.


a mountain just across the resort, good for rough climbing.
