Camiguin is one of the most tranquil places I’ve visited and it’s but correct to choose a resort of utter peace and quiet. Barely fifteen minutes away from the airport, I imagined the Agohay Villa Forte Resort to be a rustic, laid-back, and relaxing haven. And I wasn’t at all disappointed. Upon entering its approximately two hectare simple but verdant gardens, I immediately knew I’d have an enjoyable hang-loose stay.
With only four air-conditioned cottages plus an enticing swimming pool located beside the island’s shoreline and a charming restaurant (which serves delightful Japanese, Continental, and Filipino dishes) cum reception area just a few steps away, Agohay comes across as a friend’s extremely welcoming vacation home! Native roosters and hens and tame dogs strutting about the spacious greenery minding their own business are likewise a refreshing, amusing sight.
Do not expect 5 star service but the staff (only a handful) are all most attentive, efficient, and warm. Kudos to the leader of the pack – Rose, and her team composed of Noel, Maya, Dodong, Romeo, Ana Leen, and our tour guide/driver Roland! Most important of all, bravo to Mingming the adorable resident guest relations kitty who charmed us effortlessly!
Raring to visit this magical island again and throwing all caution to the wind with Mingming at Agohay Villa Forte!
