MABUHAY ! A warm welcome to our “Tropical Hideaway” on the island of Mindoro – isolated enough to spirit away the every-day-hectic of busy city life, Tuko Beach Resort is set on the fringes of a jungle-like forest, nestled within over 4,000sqm of lush tropical gardens and with direct access to a picturesque natural coastline with several white sandy beaches and bays.
To emphasize this “Robinson-Crusoe” – feeling, the resort itself is kept deliberately small: only around 20 guests at any one time, may enjoy this cozy, intimate atmosphere and experience truly Mindorenean hospitality.
All cottages and rooms are of superior standard, fitted to provide spacious and comfortable living in close harmony with nature.
Besides surf, sun and sand, our guests are welcome to choose from the resort’s various other facilities, services and activities.
Restaurant, Coffee-Shop, BBQ-pit
One of the focal points amidst the resort’s tropical garden is the Restaurant – an airy, grass-thatched structure with openings on three sides to catch the cooling sea breezes. Dining at the restaurant is an almost ‘al-fresco’ experience: set meals or buffet – there is always plenty of food!
Merienda, cakes and other snacks are available throughout the day at the Lanai – don’t miss our regular ‘Jungle-Pizza’ nights !
The BBQ (adjoining the Lanai) is designed to easily fit and prepare a full-sized ‘Lechon’, a traditional and tasty Pinoy dish of roasted pig. BBQs on a smaller scale may also be arranged.
Abra Walk; Kalong River Trekking; Latag Trail; Agbalala Falls
Guided tours can be arranged: from a leisurely morning walk to a full day hike. For a very special experience, we recommend ‘Kalong River Trekking’ – hiking through plantations and along rice fields, crossing the river several times before taking a picnic break at a sandy river bend. From here, you’ll have to swim through two natural pools of cool crystal clear water to reach the waterfalls ! |Rates depend on group size and must be booked in advance – please contact us for the price list.
Beach Club; Jacuzzi
At the Beach Club you’ll find everything for a fun or relaxing day at one of the beaches: snorkel, mask and flippers; body surfers; life preservers; kites; soft tennis; beach towels and lots of other water toys. The use is free-of-charge for our guests on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Enjoy a leisurely afternoon in and around the Jacuzzi ! Set back into the garden, there is also a private rest area with sun umbrella and comfortable lounge chairs. Reserve our ‘Afternoon Sunset’ Package incl. drinks at only
