Introducing the home to the sea of clouds in Negros Occidental, Jomax Peak! Located just one hour away from Bacolod City in Don Salvador Benedicto, Jomax Peak is owned by Atty. Jomax Ortiz. It’s undeniably one of the most instagrammable destinations in the region right now.

I got the privilege of seeing how this family rest house slowly turned into a cozy resort and wellness facility now. Atty. Ortiz’s daughter, Sofia, is a good friend of mine and I remember how she talked about their plan of opening their picturesque property to public. They have the best land area in Don Salvador Benedicto, I must say! The sunset and moonrise sit right at their balcony. The rich mountain range is simply their backdrop! Just imagine sipping a cup of coffee every morning with those views. Awesome!

When I was still based in Bacolod, our family would usually go to DSB to check on our property as well. Sofia and I will kid about how our rest houses are gonna look in the future. We also want to build a tree house beside each other. Anything that spells OUTDOORS is our idea of home. Hopefully, it materializes soonest too.

Right now, Jomax Peak is getting a lot of attention. I remember my Change Is Coming post was actually shot there. The Ortiz family invited people from their circle to visit their place for the soft opening. The next thing they know, Jomax Peak is positioned right now to be one of the region’s next top destination.

If you have been dying to see the sea of clouds in Mt. Pulag or in Sagada, Jomax Peak is a great alternative! I remember how Atty. Ortiz would say that the sea of clouds is nothing but an ordinary sight there especially during the cooler season.
