Tapao Mountain Resort

Tapao mountain resort is the place perfect for those who want a calm and relaxing environment.  It’s called Tapao, meaning top, because the resort is situated on top of a mountain. Sometimes, mostly during weekdays, you can visit the place when there are no customers other than you. It will feel like you own the whole place.

They have 7 feet deep pools which can be used by those who love to dive. They also have three kiddie pools so your children can also enjoy the place.

Their facilities are well-maintained and the pools are really clean. For those who can’t swim, you can rent life savers for fifty pesos each. They also have billiard facilities.

    Good to read your article about Tapao Mountain Resort. I have a plan to visit Tirad Pass in Cervantes then go directly to Vigan(Tapao Mountain Resort). Hope you can help me to figure out how much will it cost me for the hotel. My colleague will be with me(I think 5-6pax). For Tapao Mountain Resort, do they have cottage(bed to rest)? Would you mind telling me more about the details? Please do circle back if you have time.(We are her in CLARK PAMPANGA)

      Hi Waldeo. Yes, they have rooms for rent. But sorry ’cause I wasn’t able to get the list of room prices. But I think a room costs around 1000 to 2000 per night.

      Hi Jons. The entrance fee is around 150 pesos. And yes, you can already use the pool once you’ve paid the entrance fee. 🙂

      Hi Marjorie. Sorry but we’re not connected with the resort. I’m not sure if they’re open but currently, it always rains in Cabugao so I think it’s not the perfect time for swimming.

      Hi. If there are no price changes, room for two is 800 pesos per night. I think entrance fee is already included in the 800 pesos fee.
