Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park: Homey Experience at General Nakar

Share this:

One of the reasons to visit General Nakar is its small town charm, and in my opinion the best way to experience that is to stay in a local accommodation. We’re lucky to spend three days in Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park, a homey resort owned by Tita Fely.

Here’s our experience at Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park in General Nakar – and why you should consider booking here too!

Our stay at Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park

Located in Sitio Kuyapi, Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park is a resort with pool, surrounded by lush greens and forests. Come here if you want to take a city break or want to mingle with Tita Fely and her local patrons, who often visit in groups on weekends for family bonding.

There are plenty of outdoor tables, seats, and even a hammock outside.

There are different accommodation at Kubo Hideaway, including small and large cottages and airconditioned rooms (the Eco Lodge Garden Rooms). We stayed in the latter. Our room was simple but has everything we need — a double bed with a pull out, a private bathroom, and complimentary toiletries.

Outside, there’s a huge open cottage that serves as a place to hang out, chat with each other, and enjoy food. Our best memories are in the restaurant where we had all-day access to hot kapeng barako and Tita Fely prepared and served us home-cooked meals. My friend Jan even watcher her make sinantolan — a beloved dish in General Nakar composed of santol cooked in coconut milk, with slices of siling labuyo for spice. We also had other familiar comfort food like sinigang, tortang talong, and fried fish.

We were very pampered when it came to the food, that we’d look for Tita Fely’s cooking whenever we were outside!

Tita Fely also asked us to join her in a “patimtim,” which means sharing a local drink (typically lambanog), or “tikim-tikim” (sipping a drink to taste it). One of the things we discovered about Nakarins is that they sure love their drinks. It reminds me of the “tagayan ritual,” which I also experienced in another part of Quezon.

We also chatted with other local guests. A group of senior ladies booked a cottage for a birthday celebration and they offered as lambanog. We exchanged pleasantries and when we said we don’t know what a “binagkat” is, they offered us a hot plate of food. (As we found out, “binagkat” is sweetened kamoteng kahoy.) I love the warmth and hospitality of the ladies and I swear this only happens in the province.

Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park also has a swimming pool with cover, so you can swim without it getting too hot even during the day. There is a 3-feet kiddie pool and an adult section that goes from 4 to 6 feet. The water here is as cold as a spring water but truly refreshing! Remembering about it just makes me want to go back and take another dip.

On the course of three days, we enjoyed the comfortable rooms, delicious home-cooked meals, the cold pool, and Tita Fely’s warmth and hospitality. Even though we’d also stayed in more modern accommodations, our experience at Kubo Hideaway Zone Eco Park is truly one for the books and encapsulates what it feels like to visit a small town in the province.
