Sun Xi Mountain Retreat is a socio/eco-tourism project that started in 2006 - up in the cool mountain village of Lepanto, Alegria, Cebu - and is ongoing.
The concept is to nurture and develop the existing beautiful and rich natural resources of the local people, flora and fauna in their own environment, and allow the visitor a unique opportunity of experiencing this in accustomed comfort, peace and security. Your stay at Sun Xi Mountain Retreat, whether for a few hours, days or weeks, will undoubtedly enrich your lives and others.
The ambience of Sun Xi Mountain Retreat is akin to "Glamping" or "Glamorous Camping". In every guest room 24 hour electricity and room service, luxuriously appointed comfort rooms with hot showers. In most rooms LCD/Plasma television, DVD, in-house movies, wireless (complimentary) internet access, bathrobes, non-smoking rooms, mini-bar, coffee/tea maker - are just some of the other facilities at your disposal.
Outside the grounds of Sun Xi Mountain Retreat, the lands are how they have been for hundreds and hundreds of years - nature on your doorstep. Throughout the day you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the gardens, surrounding farm-lands and magnificent 360 "heaven on earth" scenery. Have a massage, read a book (or 2 or 3), listen to music, write a song, paint a picture, bird-watch, weather-watch, star-gaze.
If you like to "do stuff" as part of your vacation, you are most welcome to join the project with some farming, gardening, animal husbandry, constructing, landscaping, teaching at the local elementary school. We can accommodate school, religious or charity groups.
Or if you are the more active adventurous type, then hill-walking, mountain-biking and caving are just some of the activities we can readily accommodate on premises.
Surrounding Sun Xi Mountain Retreat are literally thousands of hectares of natural "Karst" landscapes providing endless adventure activities for walkers, bikers, cavers, hand-gliders, golfers, fishing, canoeing (at Lumpan Lake), climbing and absailing waterfalls, bathing in thermal hot-springs.... The list is endless.

Great time as always
Отличный опыт - на яхте есть все что нужно, никаких проблем с горячей водой, отоплением, электричеством. Поездки на сампане оказались не столь проблемными, как казалось сначала - приезжает через пять минут, даже в 11 ночи. Хозяина не было в городе, но это не прблема - все было готово к приезду
Waouh, we stayed for 10 nights on board And it was great !! All you need is on board, very quite place, very easy And fast access to the citycenter with bus (And the sampan !!!!!)
Thank you also Maribel for your help
We Will be back That's sure, we Will keep a marvelous memory of our stay !
It validly a cabin in the boat. Real adventure. Was the fine decision to meet there New year. In the boat there is everything that is necessary - a shower, warm water, a toilet, the conditioner. There is no TV, but unless behind it it is necessary to spend night in a cabin?
The region of Aberdeen where there is Boat Club is rather removed from the center of Hong Kong, but the bus for 5 HKD there goes, and the trip from the center by a taxi won't cost to you dearer 60-70 HKD. In the area it is very quiet and peaceful.
That Ocean park is nearby located and in the water area of the same Aberddeen Boat Club there is a known floating restaurant Jumbo.
From minuses - need peculiar paid "a water taxi" which will take you to the boat. In the afternoon there is a lot of who goes by small boats and can throw you where it is necessary for 7-10HKD, and here at night the price can grow considerably as you should call specially the woman by this boat.
Nigel & Lani Ford - beautiful and sympathetic people who helped us as could.
I recommend strongly to visit this boat to all fans of non-standard places for a stop in Hong Kong.
Nigel & Lani are very kind hosts. During our stay we have had some troubles and they have done everything to resolve our problem.
The journeys on sampan are very funny and the view of town from the boat's deck is suggestive!
Very nice experience at What's Next !! Truly nice and enjoyable room in a boat. We spent a couple days in Honk Kong for business, and this was the perfect place to rest.
One thing that must be kept in mind however, is that the boat is moored away from the pier which means that one has to use a sampan (local taxi-boat) to access the boat. It adds a couple bucks per night (10-20 HKD per pers). Quite an experience thought!
We loved it. Exactly the experience that one can live only with AirBnb Thank you Nigel and Lani!
