After Holy Week, NegOcc plans to reopen Mambukal Resort.

BACOLOD CITY, Philippines – After months of recovery from the devastation caused by Typhoon Odette, the provincial government-owned Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary in Murcia, Negros Occidental, will reopen after Holy Week.

On Tuesday, Provincial Tourism Officer Cheryl Decena indicated that they will first allow visitors for day excursions, with overnight accommodations coming in May.

“We’ll open the resort to the public after Holy Week, between April 18 and 20, as directed by the governor (Eugenio Jose Lacson).” She told reporters after the hearing on the proposed ordinance for tariff changes in the use of the resort facilities that “it will be from May onwards” for overnight stays.

Decena stated that charges for lodging and recreation facilities have not increased since 2003, while the entrance fee was last raised in 2011.

“It’s to make it easier for clients because it’ll be all-inclusive.” They can save money by doing this rather than paying for separate services or facilities,” she added.

Adults will pay PHP120, up from PHP50 before, and children will pay PHP60, up from PHP20 previously, which includes access to the swimming and dipping pools.

Decena stated, “We’re hoping to get this cleared before the re-opening.”

Almost two years after it was shut down due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, the provincial administration reopened the mountain tourist attraction, renamed Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary, on December 1.

It has used as a quarantine and isolation facility for Negrenses and Capitol staff who have tested positive for the virus.

Mambukal, one of Negros Occidental’s most popular tourist sites, was among the province’s structures and amenities damaged by “Odette” last December 16. The resort’s electricity supply was only restored in March.

Lacson’s Executive Order (EO) 21-45, series of 2021 designated the Mambukal Resort as a wildlife sanctuary and marketed it as such.

Several wildlife species are protected in the area under Republic Act 9147, often known as the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act.

“Hunting, hurting, taking, or killing any endemic or wildlife creatures within the said territory/and or the destruction of any vegetation/or any act causing the disturbance of the habitat of the wildlife thus protected are hereby forbidden,” according to the EO.
