Aloha! Lā maikaʻi, maayong adlaw ninyo.

We all know Cebu is wreaking with the island vibes from north to south. I just feel so blessed and grateful to have grown up here and to be close to nature as often as I would want to. We have so many places to go to, so many options to choose from as to where we’d stop for a while and appreciate nature.

Relax your mind and visualize your plans for the good future ahead ~

Today, we bring you Hale Manna Resort and Coastal Gardens in Moalboal – a sweet place in the south where you can enjoy peace and quiet while you revitalize. Be one with the ocean and breathe all that fresh sea breeze. Have quiet evenings with your significant other or with your family.

Hale Manna ~ House of God Energy

Hale Manna is a Hawaiian term which means ‘house of good energy’ in English. Take care of your energy, that prana – the one that flows inside your body. Nourish it by taking some time off from the busy city life and slow down. I can already imagine how an hour at this place would seem like it’s been three hours. The art of slow living, it’s really amazing and refreshing.

Such a lovely place to just be ~

Enjoy fun activities – go swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, stargazing, reading, sunbathing, beachcombing or simply just doing nothing. Meditate and be in the present moment.
