- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Baybayon ni Agalon is a scenic picnic resort located in Malitbog, Albuera, Leyte, only 28.9 km from Ormoc City, the capital of Ormoc in the province of Leyte, Philippines. Set against a backdrop of misty mountains and tropical seacoast, Baybayon ni Agalon offers unique accommodations where nature-lovers can bask in unspoiled beauty while remaining close to the city. With pebble stones for the beach, the waters are clear and inviting for swimming. There is also a large swimming pool for those who prefer not to swim in the beach. Baybayon ni Agalon has a sprawling lawn which is nicely landscaped and suitable for sunny family picnics. A good number of beautifully thatched-straw-roof kiosks are spread evenly for shade and seating. Just near the entrance and by the swimming pool, there is a large fresh water koi pond with kiosk islands. A restaurant serves mostly Filipino cuisine, but guests can also bring in food without incurring any corkage. Children will find the outdoor trampoline and playground most appealing. Not far away, a mini-zoo with exotic birds like Mynas, Peacocks, Guinea Fowls, Ostriches, etc. and reptiles such as an Albino Burmese Python will surely satisfy their insatiable curiosity. A fish spa pedicure tank is also present in the resort and offers a unique treatment. Gara rufa fish, also called doctor fish, nibble fish, kangal fish, and bonefish (in New England) is a species of fish that lives and breeds in the pools of some Turkish river systems and hot springs. In modern times, they have been integrated as a spa treatment, where they feed on the dead skin of patients (exfoliation). There are at present twenty three (23) rooms that make up a mini hotel to cater those who would like for an overnight or an extended stay. The rooms are made up of twenty (20 deluxe rooms), two (2) family rooms, and one (1) tree house. Occasionally, function/conference rooms are converted to dormitories making for an instant hostel. Lastly, Baybayon ni Agalon is owned, managed and operated by the Iñaki Larrazabal Enterprises. ... more less
