The Rancho Cancio getaway experience

FacebookGoogle+LinkedInStumbleUponPinterestDiggTumblrDeliciousEmail


To be honest with you, the city life is not that bad, but of course, we sometimes need to get rid of the hustle bustle of the busy streets, hectic work schedules and traffic. Here in Cebu City, we just found a new place to spend a closer encounter with nature and to enjoy a relaxing feel-at-home scenery away from home. This is my experience with Rancho Cancio.

The infinity pool touches the tip of nature. A very breath-taking view at Rancho Cancio.

Rancho Cancio is a private rest house located at the mountainous barangay of Adlaon, Cebu City. It is kilometers away from Ayala Heights in Busay and it’s quite far as it took us around an hour and a half to travel. My colleagues from work and I met at Cebu IT Park and we rented a jeepney to go there.

The travel makes you wait and wait and really wait until you will arrive to a wonderful place, a Japanese, zen-inspired house in white and black, and dark chocolate frames, surrounded with glass windows and the green marks of nature.

The wait from the traveling is worth it.

Just amazing exterior design of the Japanese-inspired house.

When you arrive there, you will be greeted by the very hospitable and skilled house staff. Also, this little fellow will welcome you warmly to his humble home in the mountain view of Adlaon. I would like you to meet, Snoopy.

Snoopy, the cutest, littlest friendliest dog.

Not only that, the sapphire water of the infinity pool will really attract and attempt you to jump right away and touch the tip of the pool and watch over the view of the greenest mountains of Adlaon, which is 33 kilometers away from main city Cebu.

Rancho Cancio is a private-owned, exclusive getaway place for the family and friends, ideal place for parties, team building, and vacation destination. One of the house helpers informed us that there will be an upcoming wedding reception in September, which I believe is a good pick to spend time with the newly wedded couple and their families.

The infinity pool is really infinite relaxation with jacuzzi on both sides at the end of the pool. Fantastic!

Relax! Enjoy a stress-free life at one of those near-the-pool chairs and enjoy the cool breeze and fresh air with the green background.

They serve breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. You can also avail their buffet services or you can bring you own food with additional charges. Servings are international and fusion cuisine from Mexican, and Italian. They also offer Filipino dishes. They even serve home-made cookies like cinnamon and oatmeal for dessert which I really love.

Chicken in garlic and onion with potatoes.

Fish fillet (Dori) in dark soy sauce with red bell pepper

Cinnamon cookies. Minutes later, they’re all gone.

Right after you have lunch or dinner, you can walk around the place and enjoy the view of the mountains in Adlaon so green they are like paintings in the living room. You can also feel the touch of the soft breeze to get rid of your stress (but it’s so cold at night the pool will be covered with fog that when you breathe it feels like it’s snowing. It usually happen around midnight so don’t forget to bring your jacket and long pants).

All green, like a bowl full of veggies.

Rooms are available in family size or huge groups of 20’s. Since I went there for a team building, we took the room with many double-decked beds like the army bunkers.

Orange and chocolate brown linen-covered double deck beds.

We paid P/650.00 per head for the accommodation. Food is around P/250 per set (breakfast, lunch or dinner) and the management can give you their menu of many choices.

Anyway, these all here are for breakfast: scrambled egg, fried milk fish, spicy and sweet chorizo, fresh pineapple slices, fruit juice. Good morning!

This place is so relaxing I don’t want to go back home yet.

      Hi Ripinskari,

      I would like to inform you that Mr. Mark Cancio
      is a businessman and sometimes very challenging to reach through the
      mobile indicated on the post.

      I will try to look for other
      options for you to contact the management of Rancho Cancio. Updates will
      be posted soon. However, for the meantime, that’s the only contact
      detail I can provide.

      I apologize for the inconvenience.

      Thanks.

      Yes, because Rancho Cancio is rented exclusively. If you try to do a walk-in there, and the place is currently used, you will not be entertained by the caretakers.

      Reservations must be made all the time, as per experience. Thank you.
