A visit to Bohol won’t be complete without visiting Loboc. This rustic town is home to the long, winding Loboc River which hosts lunch cruises and stand up paddling activities. The tarsier—the world’s smallest primate—and an internationally acclaimed children’s choir are also pride of this small town.
After the usual countryside tour, it’s best to get some rest in Loboc and wake up full of energy the next day for the river activities. Although there are several accommodations in the area, we recommend staying at Stefanie Grace Paradise Inn. It’s a colorful two-storey house along the river, a short walk from the Loboc Tourism Complex. Good location, good view, good rooms, and it’s 100% owned by a Filipino family.
During our visit, the owner, Sir Boyd, welcomed us. The place was very homey. The first floor has very good ventilation, you get enough fresh air and a view of the river. And the room, the bed, the bathroom were big. Very comfortable. The old television was a bit out of style, but overall the room looked fresh and modern.
At night we had dinner at a pizza place in town and decided to walk back to the resort and had a quick swim in the pool before calling it a day. In the morning, we woke up to a good view, even the window pane was foggy. We were also served a good breakfast while we enjoyed the refreshing scenery of the river.
