    Nature’s Eye Resort Guimaras: Secluded Paradise for Lovers
    Posted in: Guides, Guimaras Guide 2017, Travel

    If you follow me on social media, and you definitely should, you’ll know that I went on a short trip with other bloggers to the island of Guimaras. It was my first visit, and thanks to Nature’s Eye Guimaras, a resort on the far side of the island, I got to see how beautiful Guimaras really is.

    A Guide to Nature’s Eye Guimaras

    Nature’s Eye Guimaras is a resort that offers tranquility and privacy. It’s located in Brgy. Tando, Nueva Valencia Guimaras. It’s not as accessible as other resorts but the seclusion of this hidden jewel is part of the package. From my experience, it’s a resort designed for adventurers, nature lovers and honeymooners.


    Should I Go to Natures Eye Guimaras | Mea in Bacolod


    How to Get to Nature’s Eye Guimaras from Bacolod

    1. Take a fastcraft from Bacolod to Iloilo. Ticket prices vary depending on the fastcraft you are going to take.
    2. From Iloilo pier, you have to go to Ortiz Wharf. You can do this on foot or you can ride a taxi.
    3. Take a pump boat/passenger boat to Jordan, Guimaras.
    4. From the Jordan wharf, you can rent a tricycle or a multicab for you to get to Brgy Tando (where the resort is).

    Don’t forget to take a picture here. Ask your driver! He will gladly stop and take a photo of you and your group.


    Brgy Tando to Nature’s Eye Resort

    Nope, you’re not done traveling to the resort yet. From Brgy Tando, you’re going to take a short hike to the beach shown above. From this beach, you will have two options (whichever is available):

    • If the boat is NOT available, you will continue your hike to get to the resort. The terrain is, I would say, somewhere between easy and medium.
    • If the boat is available, you’ll take it to the resort’s jetty.



    Arriving at Paradise

    Nature’s Eye Resort – Dining Area

    When you arrive at the gate or jetty of Nature’s Eye, you will be directed to the dining area where you can rest before going to your room. At this area, you will see the owner’s, Rowena Amancio, cottage, tables and benches, and her unique outdoor bathroom (which you have to see for yourself).

    Check-in Time: 2PM

    If you want to go straight to your room, you can as long as you arrived during the check-in time which is 2PM. No worries if you arrived early because that’s what the waiting area is for – sit yourself down, have something to drink, and take in the view. You can also explore the resort if you’re not tired.


    Food at Nature’s Eye Guimaras

    As you may have noticed, the resort is not easily accessible which means that you can’t really go out and then go to the nearest “tiangge” to buy something. But, you don’t have to worry about food because the packages the resort currently offers include breakfast, lunch and dinner. Click on the photo below to know more details about the packages.

    Me and my blogger friends stayed there overnight and we got to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort. The food is A+! Of course, it’s not gourmet but Manang Indang’s cooking may, very well, compete with the home-made dishes prepared by your mom or grandmom.


    Accommodation at Nature’s Eye Guimaras

    Nature’s Eye Guimaras currently has four (4) accommodations that you can enjoy. Each room is Instagram-worthy. The structures have been strategically built to cater to the majestic view from the resort. Staying in one of the rooms will make you feel closer to nature. The bathrooms are especially note-worthy and you will see why from the pictures.

    What to Do at Nature’s Eye

    What to do at Nature's Eye | Island Hoping

    There are a couple of things you can do when you are at the resort. You can go exploring, swimming or island hoping. I’d recommend island hoping so you can make the most out of your trip. The packages the resort offers currently have island hopping as an inclusion so, again, please do check the latest offers on their Facebook page by clicking on the photo below.


    What to Know Before Going to Nature’s Eye

    The resort is expanding so you can look forward to other amenities in the near future. It’s also important to remember that the owner, Rowena Amancio, is a nature lover herself, and this love of hers translated into how she built the resort. Please remember:

    • That the resort is a place to relax. Be courteous of other guests.
    • That one of the resort’s aim is to encourage guests to be close to nature. Do not liter nor pick flowers.
    • Manang Indang (the cook) is at your service. If you need extra rice, ask.
    • The signal isn’t going to be very good but if you stay at the dining area, you will get a bar or two.
    • To talk to Ms Rowena. She is very accommodating and she will gladly sit with you after you’ve eaten to tell you more about why she built Nature’s Eye.
    • Disclaimer: My stay was shouldered by Nature’s Eye, however all statements I have on this post have not been influenced in any way.

    Don’t Forget to Bring

    1. Bug Spray
    2. Sunblock
    3. A hat
    4. Reliable flip flops/shoes
