Before the more famous MGM Mountain Resort, RR Family Spring Resort, Waig Crystal Spring Resort and Edlimar Farm and Spring Resort were developed, there was Luan-Luan. Located in Poblacion, Quezon, Bukidnon, this municipal-owned resort used to be the most famous destination in the southern part of the province. I could still remember the first time I went here was during our high school field trip more than twenty years ago. I recently had the opportunity to get inside Luan-Luan Spring Resort once again during one of my travels when we decided to stopped over and eat our lunch here.
Entrance of Luan-Luan:
Entrance fee, tables and cottages charges:
Luan-Luan has an abundant supply of spring water and its spillover is diverted to irrigate nearby ricelands. Motorists washing their vehicles outside the resort are also a common sight.
Inside the resort, I observed that it is still surrounded with giant balete trees:
These are two old swimming pools of Luan-Luan:
Sari-Sari Store/Canteen in a dilapidated building:
More swimming pools:
Except for the additional pools, nothing much has changed inside Luan-Luan. In my own observation, the resort is not managed properly as some thrashes can be seen scattered all around and leaves and twigs are also left floating in the water.
I hope the LGU would exert some effort in improving Luan-Luan. If improved and managed properly, it has the potential to be at par with privately-owned spring resorts in Bukidnon.
