Mambukal Mountain Resort is located at the foot of Mount Kanlaon and is about 32 KM away from Bacolod City. It sits at about 1,200 feet above sea level and spans about 23.6 hectares of land. This establishment dates back to 1927, when it was started by a Japanese architect named Kokichi Paul Ishiwata. Originally, the resort only consisted of a bathhouse and picnic garden for Negrenses and their companions. Nowadays, it is now a full-fledged resort but it still features the original bathhouse that Ishiwata designed.
There are many attractions and activities that can be done in the resort. For adventure seekers, they offer ziplining and trekking up the seven falls of Mambukal. Visitors can also experience Japanese-style bathing in the bathhouse designed by Ishiwata, or take a dip in the sulfur pool which is known to be good for the skin. There is a butterfly garden in the resort where visitors can see different species of butterflies, and local guides also offer bat watching and bird watching to see the wildlife local to the area.
Tourists will need to pay a small entrance fee upon entering the resort.
As a popular resort in Bacolod, Mambukal Mountain Resort is open to travelers all year round.
