Travelgasm: Kuting Reef, Macrohon, Southern Leyte

The south part of Leyte has been blessed with beautiful and crystal clear beaches. Its pristine forests and abundant flora and fauna make it more interesting. Hence, it comes to no surprise that a lot of tourists and locals alike visit this gorgeous place.

Considered as one of the gems of the province of Southern Leyte, Kuting Reef Resort is a place every traveler should see and stay at for a while. It is located in a private and peaceful cove at Barangay Asuncion.

The intimate place is consisted of a 3-hectare land covered with verdant lawn, more or less 30 tall coconut trees and a fine pebble beach, which makes it a perfect place to chill and relax privately. Moreover, Kuting Reef is also a perfect getaway for family and friends who want an exclusive and luxurious (yet worth it) tropical resort experience.

Trusting to its claim of a safe haven for the distressed, my friends — Jamoi, Naomi and Earl — and I decided to pay this place a visit after one long week of dreary and stressful grinding.

Coming from Ormoc City, my squad and I started the 5-hour drive at around 10:30. Most locals say that it would only take for a van or bus 2 to 3 hours to reach our end point. However, since it was all our first time to go out of time by ourselves, we failed to arrive to Kuting Reef at the usual travel time.

We stopped at Mang Inasal in Baybay for a while to take our lunch and buy some body essentials. Then, we drove straight to Maasin City and made a stop at Andok’s to pee.

Since we do not really know where we are going, we also took the opportunity to ask to some Maasinhons on how to get to Kuting Reef. Then, we were told that we are a few minutes away already since it is located in the municipality of Macrohon, which is located next to Maasin City.

By 5 PM, we arrived at Kuting Reef and immediately checked in. I was so tired that afternoon and I even felt more tired when I remembered that I will still have to edit a number of news articles (since I work as a news editor).

While Jamoi, Naomi and Earl were enjoying posing here and there, I was at the resto working! Hahaha! The place was perfect for reading and editing, nevertheless.

I don’t want to delve into what happened that day as it may bore you all and no one’s asking me anyway. So, here are the things we experienced in Kuting Reef:

Unfortunately, most of my photos during this trip were lost since I changed my phone. I’ll try to retrieve everything in the coming days.
