Finally, the day I was looking forward ended up well. The curiousity I had in mind was finally answered.
The Perth Paradise Resort became one of my bucketlists when I saw one post in IG last year. I got so amazed that I showed it to my sister. She was also mesmerized with the photo. The Pert is located in Sipalay. If you will check the map, it is quite far bound South from Bacolod.
We left the dorm at 6:20.Headed to South Bus Terminal.When we arrived there, we asked one ceres staff If there was any van available for Sipalay, he said “i don’t know”. We didn’t want to waste time so we just opted the bus.Luckily it was also an air-conditioned bus.
The bus left the terminal at 7:15. Travel time was more than 5 hours. The bus stopped in two different stop overs. Third is Sipalay.
We arrived in Sipalay bus stop past 12. By the way, while I was in the bus I already communicated with our driver Kuya Dado. He is quiet famous for bloggers .
Kuya Dado mobile # 0921 786 5615.
Tell him you got his number from this blog. His trike can accommodate 6 people. But I think due to the rough road it will be difficult to go up easily. 😂
Some parts of the road going to the resort is not well maintained. It was a little bit bumpy ride that my sister and I told kuya Dado we will just get off from the trike. 😂
HELLO PERTH!! 😍
As soon as we arrived in the resort, we approached the front desk right away. We paid the entrance fee. Oh before I forget, you have to pay an additional fee if you want to swim in the pool. It’ll cost you 100php.
The resort has accommodations as well for those who want to spend more time here.
After paying the fees,my sister and I started looking around. We took the steps going up in order to find a more beautiful view of the islets.
I should have counted how many steps it was going up. 😂 😬
We took some more steps in order to see the pool. The views are to die for…👍😍
The accommodation is very near the pool.
The cottages and a bar.

**The information I will be sharing is based on my experience.*
>> Take a jeepney bound for SOUTH BUS TERMINAL. We hired a trike to take us to the terminal.
>> Find the CERES bus with the HINOBA-AN /SIPALAY sign. Buses can be air conditioned or none. In our case the air conditioned bus was available. We were lucky. Tell the ticket collector to drop you off SIPALAY BUS STOP.
>>Travel time : 5-6 hours. 😂
>> From Sipalay bus stop you can take a trike, or motorbike.There are some waiting in the area. Or you can take the resort’s transport service and pay the same. The resort is more or less 5km. According to Kuya Dado.
*These data are also my personal experience *

( The usual fare going there will only costs 100php,So 200php RT, but we gave Kuya Dado a tip. He took care of us. He wasn’t just a driver but a guide and a photographer as well. I guess he deserved a little bit for his effort )

You can also go to THE PERTH via DUMAGUETE. The travel time I’ve heard was 3-4 hours.
It was really worth the long hours travelling. I had an awesome and a wonderful short stay in the place.
