Located in Barangay Damires, Janiuay, is a great getaway from the crowds and overcast of the city, whether for a day or a weekend. Reawaken your zest for life with simple sensory pleasures. Soothe your senses in an Eden of lush greenery. Against the backdrop of mountains, relaxation comes easily in DAMIRES HILLS, Tierra Verde.

Damires Hills is an inland resort nestling in Barangay Damires, Janiuay, a 25-minuter drive from The New Iloilo Airport and an hour from Iloilo City. The place offers the perfect introduction to the municipality with its steep mountain backbone, slopes carpeted with lush plantation of banana, papaya, pomelo, lanzones, rambutan, calamansi and mahogany trees. Since the resort is located only a 5-minuter motorcycle or motorbike-ride from the poblacion, it is not uncommon for its adventurous locals to frequent the resort.

The resort covers an area of approximately 40 hectares with a fabulous farmland frontage and stands as a vision of a typical family-owned rest-house by the heirs of the late Federico Tirador, Sr. Newly-opened in October 10, 2010, it has since been contributing to the tourism attractions, and is one of the must-see inland resorts of Iloilo.

Damires Hills provides a rare taste of paradise with cogon huts that can accommodate 10-15 persons; 2 family rooms for an overnight stay; 2 function rooms good for trainings and seminars for a maximum of 70 persons; and a stunning pool---the social epicenter for the resort for guests of every age and a magnificent sight to behold and hypnotizes you with its rhythmic play of the elements.

The design of the structures combine contemporary, 'plantation' d├ęcor of bamboo and wood with high sloping ceilings and airy verandas providing a true sense of place that allows its guests to experience Damires Hills’ signature blend of romance, rejuvenation and plenty of space to stretch out and make oneself at home.

If you want lots of rest and leisure, physical activity, lots of privacy, travel with groups, re-bond with your child or mate, bond with nature, take photographs or celebrate an occasion, Damires Hills is the place to be.

One cannot fail to be enchanted by the sights and sounds of the resort---from the powerful swell of the mountain to the refreshing breeze. There is something sensual and romantic about the resorts’ lush fertility and diversity. It rekindles passions. Feel almost like your relationship is part of nature's forces. The serenity and happiness of others at the resort add to your sense of being in a good world.

Tourism in Janiuay is beginning to slowly take off now with a government who is finally beginning to realize how much the sector can help boost its local economy. Although the municipality is not famous for tourism, it has a rich tapestry of attractions and products based on the unique and rich heritage, nature, traditions, people and culture, now extending a warm welcome to its visitors.

Damires Hills, Tierra Verde is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every weekdays; Saturdays at 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. till 8 p.m. For more information please call 09096991390/ 09176325901 or email at
