the jungle or the beach? a few days ago, i would have assumed she would say yes to both but our recent malapascua trip has proved that she's not that fond of the beach. how can i not know that fact about my sister? and so she chose the jungle, and that's where we stayed in bohol for 4 days and 3 nights.
nuts huts is situated along the banks of loboc river and surrounded by hills. the huts are built on stilts and most of the huts have a veranda facing the river. all the huts are named after a movie and our hut's name was "rising sun". our room was very simple - 2 single beds with mosquito nets, an electric fan and a bathroom. it was perfect!
200+ steps to nuts huts
to reach the restaurant, you must climb 150 steps(we counted!). there were hammocks and pillows and books, they even got a table tennis table, we just chose our spot and relaxed. the restaurant had a great view of the surrounding hills and the river and when it began to get dark, some of the nearby trees were lit up with fireflies.
there was only one couple aside from us and they soon left so we had the restaurant to ourselves. our dinner was very good, price is ok and the serving is big. we had a lot of leftover and the staff told us they can keep it on their refrigerator and we can ask for it the following day, talk about service!
nuts huts is also an excellent jump-off for a lot of activities in bohol and they offer a lot of services: sauna and massage, hiking, caving, biking, firefly boat trip, motorbike rentals, etc. since i was planning to go diving in balicasag island the next day, my sister booked a guided cave hike for herself plus sauna and massage afterwards.
