Wondering if you thought if I had a splash and plunge moment at the resort, but I did not, even if I wanted to. And besides, due to time constraints, my endmost intention that time was solely capturing insights of this particular resort. And it never fail.
Anyways, it was late Saturday afternoon at past 3:00 pm when my estranged husband and I arrived at Villa Teresita Resort all the way from the office at I.T. Park, Lahug Cebu City.
Actually it’s one of my desire to visit the place once again. Then it was timely and privileged because we were invited a double birthday celebration of my dear aunt-in-law and her adopted child. Upon arrival, we settled at the counter and paid the entrance fee of Php 90.00 per head.
On the other hand, we did not pay for cottage rental because my aunt had already paid the cottage just enough for the two of us to get an inclusion of number of heads per cottage. Thankful! 🙂

Right before heading closely in our cottage, a space caught my attention (image above) and I guess this cool area is good for holding programs and other activities. And as such other means there’s also a stage present the one that has an art and painted with Villa Teresita and their logo.
The picture above is shower area and beside it are comfort rooms. Way across that open gate is a 3-storey building – an extension of Villa Teresita resort. Haven’t got the chance to roam that place, although I tried a furtive look right at the gate but to no persons available. I guess the building is not fully operational that time.
Let’s get to know how is the place evolved into a must-visit resort in Talisay City. Villa Teresita was named after their mother Mrs. Teresita Santos. The Santos family was formerly from Bulacan where the family always love of going out together for leisure. Then it came up started to business here in Cebu during the early 90’s. They built a house at Barangay Biasong Talisay then the latter it developed into a sophisticated resort.
How to get there?

The most convenient way to go through there is obviously by private vehicles or by hiring a taxi cab since the place is situated a great distance from the highway. If you take the public transportation (i.e. jeepney, bus, V-hire) from Cebu City or South, you need to drop off at the Tabunok-Talisay public market and or beside Gaisano Grand Mall – Tabunok then hire a tricycle and inform the driver to take you through the resort.
