TRAVEL: God-Color Blue is Showcased in Antulang Beach Resort, Dumaguete


Beyond this thick-bushed and comfortly-shaded pathway leads to an overlooking wonder that promises to exhilarate your jaded lives.


Antulang Beach Resort


Last Sunday at New Life Center (The Fort), Pastor Mitch preached about bringing out God-colors in the world.  As highlighted during the preach, this Bible verse aptly illustrates the inspirational message.
Matthew 5:14
The Message (MSG)
14-15 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! 
I believe exploring our country's grand resorts are great ways to enjoy and show the God colors in the world.  The verse can apply to many things, but certainly the beauty of nature is one of them, more so those that are not discovered and seen by many, those that are tucked away to be found like a jewel in grains of sand.
The majestic beauty of the rainbow marvels the love bestowed upon by God to us, however, as much as I would want to discuss all these colors, I will touch only on color blue.  Its meaning and significance, in how I see it in nature.

Philippines, being an archipelago of 7,107 islands is richly blessed with pristine beaches.

And one of the best that our family have unearthed is Negros Oriental's jem- Antulang Beach Resort.

See for yourself and be mesmerized...






Do you know why the sky and water blue?
Blue signifies hope and God's grace, oh so lavished upon us, His beloved.  Why is it that whenever we are down-trodden or hurting we look at the sky?  There we look for answers, we look for God.  And somehow it gives us comfort and soothes our aching heart.
Blue speaks to us of the eternal presence of the Lord.  It symbolizes the heavenly realm, prayer, authority, revealed God, divinity,  over comer, revelation knowledge.

Here at Antulang, blue is everywhere!

Antulang is cradled atop a cliff facing Sulu Sea.

Antulang's  location at the southern tip of the Negros Island is the perfect place for solace.  They have a lighthouse as well and this makes the resort even more unique and special in that one can see both sunrise and sunset.  Also, standing on the resort’s balcony at the middle and facing the sea on a clear day, Apo Island (on the left) and Dipolog (on the right) are both visible.
Here are my two kids preparing to snorkel and swim in the crystal clear water.


My cousins who are from Bayawan, Negros were having the time of their life catching the waves.  They never knew of the place with this beauty exists.


The only resort that has a salt-water infinity pool.  On the photo above is their kiddie pool, and my girls just loved every moment of that dip.

Waldo’s Bar offers meals and other beverages which may be enjoyed with an overlooking view of the seascape.  This is where we had our lunch.
The entrance for a day-tour is only P 250 which is consumable for lunch meals.  The day tour includes the use of the pools  and exploring the whole resort.




 There is something about plants, nature, all of the outdoors that reminds us that we are just a tiny dot in the universe and that we are all part of a greater plan, God's plan. Wherever you reside or travel to, take time to see, hear, and feel the gift of nature! And don't forget about the taste for the abundant food nature and the earth gives us!

  2. Those photos are taken good and you wanted me to explore this place - i am just sad that unlike other travel blogs they will also provide some general expenses and also the map on how to get to the place, if you have just included that we might consider this place as one of our choices for our family's summer outing but anyways, thanks a lot for your very nice post.

  3. I would be glad to be a light of the world. It's smart how you compared being the light of the world to the wonderful color of nature. Wonderful photos you have here. I love the colors and the exposure of your photography is just so perfect. It's awesome.
