Filipinos love going to the beach, especially when there are special occasions; and Kagay-anons are no different. We are constantly on the lookout for new beachfront venues for our parties and events so we can go swimming right after the program. One such venue more and more people in the city are talking about is Sonrisa Vista in Barangay Bayabas.
In the past, beach resorts in this part of the city weren’t so popular because people considered the place too inaccessible. These days, however, more jeepneys are plying the Bayabas route, which has made it easier to get to any of the resorts there. The question now is no longer whether Sonrisa is easily accessible, but simply whether you and your family/friends will like it there.
The resort has various cottages and halls for their guests. Their picnic cottages, which can accommodate up to 15 people, can be rented for PHP500, the shell cottage for PHP800, and the function hall (25 people) for PHP1,500. They also have three gazebos that can accommodate up to 15 (Gazebo 3), 30 (Gazebo 2), and 40 people (Gazebo 1). Their reception hall accommodates up to 50 people and is rented out for PHP3,000, while their largest function hall can accommodate up to 80 people and is rented out at PHP5,000.
Sonrisa also has cottages that you can rent in case you want to stay overnight – the Western Country Room (Php2700 per night), the Bahay Kubo Room (Php2500 a night), and the Indian Tepee for Php1500 a night.
The resort’s amenities include picnic areas, barbecue grills, a mini swimming pool with sundeck, an aviary, a bar with a pool table, and Indian huts and villas for guests who want to stay overnight. The resort is also just a few steps away from the souvenir shop and restaurant with the same owners. They are currently planning to add Banana Boat rides, Floaters, and Jet Ski rentals to their services soon.
The Sonrisa Vista management has indeed thought of everything their guests might need, which makes it easy to understand why their popularity is growing among Cagayan de Oro residents. It is also a plus that they are keeping the place clean and maintaining a very cozy ambience. That, coupled with highly affordable rates for their cottages and function halls, certainly makes this beach resort a go-to place for parties and events.
Whether you’re organizing a birthday party, a Christmas party, or a business meeting or seminar, this could be the ideal venue. It is distant enough to keep you away from the usual hustle and bustle of the city, but accessible enough not to make traveling to and from the venue a major hassle. You can truly enjoy whatever occasion you’re celebrating at Sonrisa.
