Bonista Resort, Escalante, Negros Occidental

Last February, I brought my family to Bonista Resort, Brgy. Buenavista, Escalante City in Negros. They visited my father who was still in a hospital in Sagay City, just a few kilometers away.

This is the main attraction, a big pool lighted with different lights at night.

We stayed in one of the rooms here, overlooking the sea. P1,500/night, children below 10 years old are free, P300 extra per head for those above 10 years old.

The sea viewed from the building.


At the back of the building there is a wide, open space, good for team building or simply running/playing area.

I forgot to take photos of this area, got these from the web.

Nice white sands.
Our two girls enjoyed the pool a lot.

The sea itself is not good for swimming though, very shallow water even during high tide.


There is a protruding rock behind the open, grassland area shown above. Views on the left, and the right of the rock.


Late afternoon, low tide, one can walk far away from the pool area. High tide returns at night, then recedes again by morning.


The next day, 6-7am, low tide.

The place is about 17 kms. from Escalante city proper. 5 kms. on the highway, then 12 kms. going to the barrio, towards the beach. Cemented road but many parts are damaged and dilapidated.

See that tiny spot on the map above Bonista, that's Jomabo island, another attraction in Escalante.

No time to visit that island, we headed back to the hospital and visited my Papa again.
