Lakawon Island is a white-sand cashless luxury resort in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental. It is around 1.5 hours drive away from my hometowne, Bacolod City. 

This modern island resort is a perfect get away if you’re looking for a tropical, sun-kissed and chill vacation. With friends or with family, Lakawon will help you strengthen your bond.

Imagine, it’s my first time there last March 23, 2019 just when my NOHS classmate Prem invited us. Here are the latest rates, fees, floating bar (tawhay), contact numbers and infos:

Via Private Car

Using a private Suzuki mini car, I was glad drive from Bacolod City to Lakawon Port in Brgy. Burgos Cadiz City. With only Google Maps and some previous knowledge of my NOHS classmate, Jorge, we reached Brgy. Burgos, Cadiz City welcome banner. You must turn left at the street with a mini town terminal and a welcome sign named “Welcome Brgy. Burgos.” 

As you enter that welcome signage, you will encounter signages like this and this, guiding you to Lakawon Seaport Pier.


  • From Bacolod City or any point of Negros Occidental, your goal is to reach this signage of Brgy. Burgos. This is before Cadiz City proper if you’re from Bacolod or Silay Airport.
  • From Bacolod City North Ceres Terminal, get to Cadiz-bound bus and go down at the Burgos Signage above.


  • From Silay Airport, get a tricycle outside the airport or a commuter van to Silay proper. Get to a Cadiz Ceres Bus or any that is northbound (except Victorias, Manapla). Go down to Brgy. Burgos above. Ride a tricycle to Lakawon Pier.
  • See my post for an in-depth guide from Bacolod Airport

  • Iloilo to Bacolod via Fast Craft
  • Once you arrive at Bacolod Pier, commute to Ceres North Terminal and take Cadiz-bound Bus.

Step 1

Get priority number. When we get there, there’s not much people lining up since it’s around 12:30 noontime. So we just went ahead to step 3. Priority Number Box:

Step 2

Heed some reminders while waiting to be called. I think step 2 is for you to read some important infos while waiting for your number. As a Graphics Designer I want these to be better presented 🤣

Step 3

Encode Passenger / Tourist Information. Here’s my classmate Jorge typing our group information which includes: group name, contact number of point person, names of guests. The interface will then project total amount of the entrance fee. 

Step 4

Reload Cash Card. Lakawon is a cashless society. Before you cross to the island, you will have to reload your card so you can stuffs in the island such as food, drinks and souvenirs. Don’t worry!!! You can also add-up load in the island itself. 

At step 4, you determine how much load you are going to put up to your card.

I think this is good so the flow and exchange of transactions are perfectly logged and the management can gain visibility.

If you are looking ways to save, bring marinated pork, chicken or beef and cook at the designated grilling area at the back of the dining hall.

Step 5

Wait to be called at the cashier. This time, it’s exchanging cash to load.

Step 6

Pay at the cashier. You can also have modifications at this step.  You will have your receipt and card.

Went here the 3rd week of March, so it’s really a climax or the denouement of the summer season. So my first impression at Lakawon is “it’s very hot” especially that we arrived 12:30 noon time and left at 5PM. So it’s basically just a half day trip. I was not able to appreciate a full sunset and night cycle but nevertheless here are my shots.
