(SPOT.ph) Nature isn’t always glamorous. For that reason, city dwellers might shy away from it—one reason why glamping's become popular, thanks to how it combines the comforts of city life in a place that’s far away from it all.

Located 14 km away from the highway in Mantalongon, Dalaguete, 150 Peakway Mountain Resort has three tents (starting at P4,000) and a dome (starting at P6,000) that are air-conditioned—if the mountain breeze is not cool enough—or for when you need the white noise of city life and want to keep bugs out. 

The best thing about the dome is the natural light it gets from the windows: great for letting in sunshine during the day, and perfect for stargazing at night. There are curtains you can close when you want a little more privacy, plus an en suite bathroom. The dome is outfitted with two queen-size beds, and a roof deck for you to truly immerse in the sprawling green that surrounds the property.

The Peakway Bell tent, which fits up to six people, is also air-conditioned, and is equipped with two queen-size beds and a carpeted living area. Although the bathrooms for the glamping tents are shared, you never have to worry about their cleanliness and maintenance because these are sanitized regularly. Each tent has a roof deck where you can dine and enjoy the great outdoors.

150 Peakway also has two non-glamping accommodations—the suite and the villa. The suite starts at P4,000 a night. It has one bedroom with two queen-size beds, a private bathroom, and a balcony. On the other hand, the villa, which starts at P8,000 for eight persons, is much bigger with two bedrooms with two queen-size beds each. The bedrooms each have their own en suite bathrooms. The villa also has a living area, a kitchenette, and a dining area of its own.

All rates are inclusive of breakfast. If you have more than four people in your group, an extra bed is P500 for children aged four to 12 and P1,000 for those 13 and above. Prices vary depending on whether you’ve booked on a weekday, weekend, or holiday.

Mantalongon, Dalaguete and Beyond

Dalaguete is right between Oslob, the southern edge of provincial Cebu, and the bustling city of Cebu. It's about a three-hour drive from the Metro but it doesn’t seem so long when you’re munching on crunchy delicacies from Carcar and cruising on the highway beside the clear blue ocean of Southern Cebu. Dalaguete is called Cebu's own little Baguio because of its cooler weather and all the fruit and vegetable farms there. It’s also called the Vegetable Basket of Cebu.

Southern Cebu is well-known among adventure travelers, who can opt to go trekking in Osmeña Peak, or swimming in Kawasan Falls.

The property on which 150 Peakway was built has been in his family since 1988, says owner Christian Vincent Cuenco. Guests can rent a tram to explore nearby destinations such as Osmeña Peak, Lugsangan Peak, Patimz Bistro, and the Flower Garden. The tram tour costs P1,500 a trip with a maximum of seven passengers, excluding entrance fees to the sightseeing spots. Make sure to let the staff know you want to use the tram because it only has two trips a day!

Aside from the tram tours, guests can bring along their bikes to cycle around the area. If you want to cool down after a day of sightseeing, you can hop into the pool for a swim or book the hot tub for P500 an hour.

Campfire Treats and Locavore Eats

What’s camping without s’mores? 150 Peakway has Fire Pit Packages for those who booked the glamping tent, the villa, or the dome for P600 for four guests. The Grand Campfire package, good for eight, starts at P1,200. These packages include camping essentials like marshmallows, graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate, bamboo sticks, and firewood.

They also serve meals in their in-house restaurant, where you can have meals like crispy pata (P250), a barbecue platter (P260), and Bicol Express (P250). 150 Peakway’s onsite restaurant also has a house special—the Peakway Rib-Eye (P1,200), 350g of certified Angus beef served with rice, fries, and corn and carrots. But while you’re already in the Vegetable Basket of Cebu, you might as well try the tortang talong (P120) and pinakbet (P150).
