My friend Ana invited us to her birthday celebration and despedida at Roosevelt Mountain Resort in Barangay Busay. The resort, that is more of a vacation house, is one unobtrusive destination with a great view of the sunrise and the beautiful night lights of Metro Cebu.
The resort offers the same cool, breezy, and fresh feel of mountain destinations. The venue is perfect for those who wish to go for long bonding, eating, drinking, and some swimming. Not advisable for the adventurous who feel trapped in a house.
It can accommodate as many as 50 individuals for functions (but probably just about 20 pax for those who will stay for the night; cowboy style.).
Booking Roosevelt Mountain Resort will allow you to enjoy the whole area which includes the following amenities (taken from: http://roosevelt-resort.blogspot.com/):
- 2 Bed rooms; 1 room with aircon, 1 room no aircon

- Bar Area

First time visitors will easily miss Roosevelt Mountain Resort as one may find it as just one of those millionaire’s residences in Busay. Signages are also lacking.
Roosevelt Mountain Resort is right before a condominium that is being constructed supposedly owned by Queensland. (Update: The structure it turns out is not a condominium but the Temple of Leah.)
If you are familiar with Lantaw Restaurant and Mountain View in Busay, just take the route going there and go a few meters farther from the corner going to Lantaw.
When asking locals or habal-habal drivers, make sure that you don’t forget to mention “Resort” as they may mistake it for Sitio Roosevelt, the locality.
