With its rich cultural traditions and natural attractions, more and more tourists are visiting Lake Sebu in South Cotabato. Dubbed the Summer Capital of Southern Mindanao because of its cool climate, Lake Sebu is a peaceful, idyllic fishing town, and the ancestral domain of the indigenous T’boli tribe. If you’re heading to Lake Sebu and looking for a place to stay, here are two places worth checking into.

Estares Lake Resort

Estares Lake Resort is one of oldest lake resorts in the area, that showcases the traditional crafts of T’bolis. The lobby is decorated with native touches, like a t’nalak wall covering, a hand-embroidered sign of the resort and carved wooden sculptures. Cottage rooms are located on an elevated hill which offers a good view of the lake. The place also offers basic rooms for backpackers and budget travelers right beside the lake.

Punta Isla Lake Resort

Punta Isla Lake Resort is another popular hotel in Lake Sebu, and is the usual choice for events and conferences in the area because of its amenities. Aside from the main restaurant with a good vantage point, Punta Isla has a floating restaurant right on the lake. They serve over 50 different tilapia dishes here including tilapia fuyong, tilapia kilawin, paksiw na tilapia and their specialty, tilapia chicharon (crispy tilapia rinds).
