JVR Island in the Sky Resort


When one speaks of islands and resorts, the instant thought would be sands, beaches and the heat of the sun. Here’s a twist to that stereotyping of the two words: the JVR Island in the Sky Resort.

Cable Car? Try it here in JVR Island in the Sky Resort.

It is the exact opposite of the sands, beach and heat of the sun! JVR Island in the Sky is actually located in the mountainous portion of Barangay Gaas, Balamban. And since it is located in the mountainous area, with a bit higher altitude, you really won’t be able to feel the heat of the sun! It has a low temperature, gaining for itself the title of being the “Little Baguio” of Cebu. And of course, there may be no sand to speak of while there, but you will definitely appreciate the lushness of the green surroundings.

Know where this would lead you? To your next great adventure!

Firstly, by the entrance, you will be able to view the long slide that leads to a huge swimming pool a few feet below. Unfortunately, (maybe because it just opened), the pool was not ready for use during the visit. Moving towards the area where the other facilities are found, one must cross a hanging bridge. This is just the beginning of more adventures that you can enjoy during your entire stay there. There are a lot of cottages that visitors can rent to use for picnics with family and friends. You may pass by them on your way up to the restaurant. Reaching the restaurant, one will be able to see what is said to be the very first cable car in Cebu City.

Cottages like this can be rented by family or group of friends.

The cable car was said to be able to accommodate around six people at one time. It costs Php 200 for each person. It takes about 20 minutes all in all to reach one end and go back to your point of origin. Take note that no personnel accompanies you during the ride. You have to adjust the seat attached to the cable car once you reach the other end so you will be facing the direction where the restaurant is on your way back. The ride is really slow paced so there’s nothing to be scared about, instead, just enjoy the view of the mountains and some little cottages that are probably homes to long time locals.
