Nuts Huts Retreat Bohol
The Nuts Huts Retreat Bohol is a mountain resort set on the lush banks of the pea green Loboc River run by a Belgian couple named Rita and Chris. The resort has developed a tropical garden on the waterside and built thatched huts on stilts under coconut trees. A restaurant is built 150 steps up the mountainside. This thatched hut is an open terrace lounge with a majestic view of the opposite mountainside and the green river below.
You never get bored viewing the valleys below and opposite. Lights and shadows cast upon the mountainside changes constantly, from the time the sun rises until it sets. Aside from the jungle environment, guests can explore the countryside by hiking, biking, boating and swimming. The owners have thoroughly explored the region and are willing to give information, guidance and assistance to guests in quest of adventures.
Others who want to just relax and take a much needed rest can laze away in a hammock and enjoy listening to good music or read books from the resorts’ library. An herbal sauna is also available for those who want to indulge and soak up natures’ bounty.
Nuts Huts Retreat Bohol is located on the eastern part of the Loboc River and a three-hour drive inland from the port of Tagbilaran City, the only city of the province of Bohol.
