Bacolod called is “The City of Smiles”. It is the capital and the largest city of Negros Occidental. Bacolod is the only city that wins a grand slam being the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines. Home of the world-renowned “Masskara Festival” and “Pana-ad Sa Negros Festival”. Bacolod is rich in cultural and architectural heritage. It has many marvelous landmarks that were constructed in the time of Spanish regime but until now it is still standing. Its land area is over 23.6 hectares. Mambukal is blessed with numerous beautiful natural resources: a huge mountain stream flows down in a series of seven falls and flows through the center of the resort, feeding the swimming pools, and boating lagoon. The Mambukal Mountain Resort has many beautiful sites, both made by man and by Mother Nature.

The Hot Springs with sulfuric soda water is one of them. Mambukal is also the home to 4,000 fruit bats which live freely inside the resort. They say that at Mambukal Resort,G there are already 3 endangered species of bats – the Philippine Flying Fox (Philippine Giant Fruit Bat), the Philippine Bare-Backed Fruit Bat, and the Little Golden-Mantled Flying Fox. These bats produce guano, a nitrogen-rich organic fertilizer. Bats are included in the list of animals protected by Republic Act 9147 (Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act).

Mambukal Resort is the best place for nature-lovers, a perfect site for eco-tourism guaranteed to relieve the stresses of urban life. Mambukal Mountain Resort has many beautiful sceneries to offer, both man made and by nature. Mambukal Resort lies 1,200 feet or about 366 meters above sea level and serves as a gateway to the Mount Kanlaon Volcano. Kanlaon Volcano is one of the prides of the Visayans because of its exceptional beauty. Mount Kanlaon is the highest mountain peak in Visayas or the Central Philippines. It has a height of 8,088 feet or about 2,465 meters and a base diameter of 30,000 meters. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the country and is part of the Negros Volcanic Belt. Mount Kanlaon is surrounded by volcanic
peaks and several craters. It is also the host of many waterfalls such as the two waterfalls of Quipot and the Sudlon Falls. Mambukal Mountain Resort with a land area of over 23.6 hectares, Mambukal is blessed with numerous beautiful natural resources. A huge mountain stream, fed by several water channels, flows down in a series of seven falls and flows through the center of the resort, feeding the swimming pools and boating lagoon.

II. Background
Located in Barangay Minoyan, municipality of Murcia, Negros Occidental is a famous 23.6 hectares Mambukal Mountain Resort managed by the provincial government. Mambukal Resort lies 1,200 feet above sea level and serves as a gateway to Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park. Originally developed by a Japanese architect named Kokichi Paul Ishiwata in 1927, the resort started as a bathhouse and picnic garden and has provided cool haven for Negrenses and their guests. Spread over 23.6 hectares, Mambukal is blessed with exceptionally beautiful natural features. A big mountain stream, fed by several tributaries, descends in a series of seven waterfalls and cuts through the center of the resort, feeding the water holes and boating lagoon.

Mambukal boasts a number of hot sulfur springs whose medicinal waters are a balm for the weary flesh and continually feeds the warm dipping pool and the newly renovated Ishiwata Bathhouse. Its slopes and dips house interesting rock formations and lust forests of tropical and semi-tropical trees as well as a variety of pines, ferns and orchids that thrive on its cool climate and rich soil, known as Mambukal clay. The resort has strategically located viewing decks or for more intimate encounters with nature, the Canopy Walk, with its hanging bridges or go all-out and challenge yourself on the Wall Climbing or the Slide for Life.

For visitors who wish to take time, various overnight accommodation facilities are available to suit their needs—family cottages, LGU cottages, standard rooms, dormitories and camp sites. Picnic huts and canopies are strategically situated near the two swimming pool for excursionists. Mambukal is also ideal for those inclined to mix business with pleasure. Versatile conference halls that can accommodate large number of guests are available for various functions such as seminars, meetings, workshops and
conferences. To rejuvenate one’s spirit, and touch base with Mother Earth, there is nothing like trek to Mambukal’s seven (7) breathtaking waterfalls, a close contact with the abundant species of butterflies and an impressive new of more than 4,000 fruit bats around the area.

The annual Mudpack Festival is an event one should consider coming back for. It’s a unique event as it celebrates the harmony of man and nature, featuring Mambukal’s distinct multi-colored clay to stir the people’s awareness of the importance of our environment. Artists from all over the province gather to exhibit their respective artistic talents in ethnic music, dances and crafts. No other resort in the Visayas gives one a holistic experience of nature that invigorates the mind and the soul, transporting visitors to the realm of peace and tranquility – and the journey starts from the gateways of Mambukal.

III. Industry description
Mambukal Resort 31 kilometers east of Bacolod is surrounded by therapeutic sulfur springs, leisure trails leading to the three waterfalls, mountain streams, lush valleys and hiking trails leading up to Mt. Kanlaon. A perfect place for eco‐tourists, the resort has accommodation facilities, swimming and therapeutic warm dipping pools, picnic huts, bat watching, boating facilities, wall climbing, slide for life, canopy walk, and camping grounds, overnight cottages and a food court. Main issues and challenges facing the industry are the following: Current downward trend in average expenditure per visitor

The need for more effective and cohesive image, market positioning, and promotion The need to expand tourist season and reduce seasonality
Wide variances in quality of products and services as well as the need to align these to market requirements and standards The need to create industry synergy and higher level of cooperation between and among public and private stakeholders within and outside the province (especially with neighboring tourism destinations The need to strengthen environmental management to conserve and enhance the vital natural and heritage of the province, and that sustainable tourism development practices are observed Product and Infrastructure Development

IV. Product and Infrastructure Development
Development of a compelling brand and product portfolio, which meet the desire for a distinctive, authentic and uniquely Negros Occidental experience Development of cultural, sporting, and social events that would contribute to the extension of the tourist season and the achievement of higher yields, improved profitability, and increased employment in the industry Improvement of tourism related infrastructure

Improvement of waste management
Promotion and Market Development
V. Improvement of destination marketing of Mambukal
Availability of tourism information at major gateway points (e.g., airports in key cities in the Philippines, international airports in other countries) and in strategic locations within Negros Occidental Development of tourism internet portal for Negros Occidental — a well-designed full concept one-stop tourism virtual mall that provides visitors access to information and reservation as well as links to various tourism intermediaries Better use of travel agencies, tour operators, and other local/regional/international tourism intermediaries to promote and distribute Negros Occidental tourism products complemented by publicity in appropriate media to create awareness and establish credibility within the segments

VI. Recommended Fields of Change and Improvement
1. Improvement of destination marketing of Mambukal Resort
a.) Use of market intelligence and consumer feedback in the preparation of communication and promotional plan as a means of improving quality of info content and the relevance of information to targeted markets. Generic destination awareness campaigns should gradually shift to featuring a range of motivations and allied leisure and business products. b.) A focus on best prospects market sectors. Given the limited marketing resources, the industry has to focus campaigns to markets and consumer segments that will offer best returns on investment. c.) Expansion of range of promo collaterals both to induce visit and reinforce holiday experience such as: Pictorial references and souvenirs to reinforce image of holiday experience
‘Tangibilize’ offer in brochures, CDs, and videos – visual displays of the real things d.) Marketing along the lines of product themes built around the destination positioning would help to get across the diversity of products which are available within Negros Occidental e.) Upgrading of marketing capabilities of tourism businesses including advertising agencies and providers of tourism promotion services

VII. Problems and Obstacles
Bat Conservation Education at Mambukal Resort
Many species of large flying foxes are endangered, mainly due to habitat loss and hunting. Although hunting and logging are prohibited in many areas in the Old World Tropics, numbers of flying foxes are still decreasing. The best compromise for the welfare of both local residents and flying foxes in many areas would be ecotourism. However, the effect of human activities on the welfare of flying foxes is unknown and needs to be investigated. Using non-invasive methods, stress levels of three species of flying foxes (Pteropus vampyrus, Pteropus hypomelanus and the endangered Acerodon jubatus) in two tourist areas in the Philippines were investigated, one of the area is Mambukal with intense and large variations in human activities.

Fecal samples were collected in the most disturbed area, Mambukal, while the flying foxes were out foraging and concentrations of glucocorticoid metabolites (GCM) were measured. Stress-related as well as other types of behavior, environmental conditions and human activities were measured. The results suggest that flying foxes have habituated to the presence of humans. (1) They found no overall differences in behaviors between both study sites, which differed significantly in human numbers and activities, and during days with disturbance and days without disturbance. Flying foxes behaved identical in both study sites. (2) No behavior correlated with measured GCM.

(3) Despite the large variation in human activities in the study site, we found no effect of human activities on glucocorticoid metabolite concentrations. However, GCM was lower in the center of the colony than in the periphery. (4) Some environmental factors like disturbance and distance from the colony center had an effect on behavioral factors like ‘uneasiness’, ‘body care’ and yawning. If disturbance has no effect on
flying fox stress levels, ecotourism would be a good solution to preserve the habitat of endangered flying foxes. However, one has to realize that the influence of human presence on bat behavior might be more complex than outlined in this study which is based on visible behaviors, and that disturbance should always be kept at a minimum. Mambukal Resort, known as a gateway to Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park on Negros Island, is a popular tourist destination.

Its large populations of flying foxes (Golden-crowned Flying Fox Acerodon jubatus, Large Flying Fox Pteropus vampyrus and Common Island Flying Foxes Pteropus hypomelanus) are the stars of the resort. Poor ecotourism practices and management were however threatening their survival, especially for the less tolerant and critically endangered Golden-Crowned Flying Fox. PBCFI in partnership with NFEFI, conducted a seminar and provided training for Mambukal’s tour guides to educate them about the conservation status and importance of flying foxes, identification, monitoring and rescue techniques, and ecotourism best practices. This activity also fostered a long-term partnership, allowing for continued monitoring and development of ecotourism. Mambukal Resort is now a showcase site for flying fox conservation in the Philippines.

Mambukal was formerly connected with Energy Development Corporation geothermal temperature gradient drilling, it is but proper that this author offer its technical comments on the resort for the interest of the public. The main attraction of Mambukal is its hot pools due to the geothermal deposits underneath the area. It is claimed by the staff that there is a reduction of hot springs in the resort the past 20 years due to drilling of PNOC some 5 to 15 kilometers away in search for the main steam deposit so it can install a power plant. This is not true. The reduction of hot springs coming out of the surface is due to reduce underground water regime. The intrusive or hot volcanic rock is still there and still hot, only there is a tremendous reduction of underground water moving in the area due to reduced rain infiltration. Outside the 24-hectare forest reserve, some areas are completely devoid of trees and now converted to farm and residential lots.

Because of this, the ground is compacted so that rain does not anymore penetrate the ground but flows overland, hence the reduction of underground water regime. Proof of this excessive overland flow is that when it rains,the river that passes through the resort is immediately muddy. In fact this erosion from nearby farm and open land causes the filling up of the resort boating lagoon with sediments that the resort has to periodically excavate the sediments for the boating lagoon to operate. As usual people and nature are never compatible with each other. The best way to preserve our environment is the absence of human activities. Since we cannot drive the people away, then we have to compromise with Low Impact Development (LID) that the people stay provided they adapt measures to preserve the environment. In other words we maintain the same hydro-geological conditions before and after the development by man.

Some of these LID measures are: prohibit rearing of animals like cows, horses and carabaos. These animals compact the ground as they move around resulting to increase overland flow and reduced rain infiltration. Instead, the resort should partially finance flower farming (the climate at 1,200 ft. is very well-suited for this) using the scientific slope farming technique. There are many more and the resort needs an expert to plan and implement all of this. VIII. Financial Issues

Valencia: We tried it once; it was a failure (2013 Panay News Philippines) BY EUGENE Y. ADIONG
Bacolod City – Should the provincial government kill the goose that lays the golden egg? Jose Ma. Valencia, chief of staff of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr., sees no logic in the proposal to privatize the Mambukal Resort in Murcia town. Mambukal Resort was once leased to NIDCOR, a private company. “It was a failure. Then Gov. Joseph Marañon (brother of the incumbent governor) took back its operation by prematurely terminating the contract with NIDCOR. It is making money now. I see no logic in giving its operation again to the private sector,” Valencia said. Reelection’s Gov. Marañon’s rival, Vice Gov. Genaro Alvarez Jr. believes privatization will improve the resort’s operation. He said he will privatize the resort if he wins as governor. Marañon, however, said the mountain resort is generating lots of revenue for the provincial government.

The provincial government has no business running a resort, stressed Alvarez,
and must concentrate in the delivery of basic services to the people. If Alvarez were to be believed, whatever revenue the resort rakes in is just enough for its upkeep. He also said privatizing the resort does not necessarily mean selling it; he said it can be leased out. Marañon denied the resort is not earning. He said it is making money and proof of this is its having been cited by “Go Negosyo” for its success. “Go Negosyo” is a non-profit organization that seeks to bring together all key stakeholders and enablers to generate competitive Filipino entrepreneurs. A fact sheet from the governor’s office stated that Mambukal Resort, which earned township status during the American occupation, drew close to one million foreign and domestic tourists over the past three-year period. The provincial government’s combined three-year profit from operating Mambukal Resort amounted to P29,037,361.44. In 2010, Mambukal registered a profit of P8,948,927.73.

Although a slight decline in revenue was reported following an increase in its 2011 expenditures – with sales pegged at P36,034,238.61 versus expenses reaching P28,909,244.59 – Mambukal remained fluid with a total cash profit of P6,966,476.02, the fact sheet claimed. The resort’s revenue last year totaled P44,306,698.42 against consolidated expenses of P30,989,770.73, resulting to a profit margin of P13,121,957.69.

There had been an offer from a private company to pay the province a lump sum gross income of Mambukal Resort – around P10 million a year. But the provincial government refused. Mambukal Resort has become one of the tourist attractions in the province./PN Mambukal Resort which is owned and operated by the Province of Negros Occidental. If one goes to Mambukal Resort for a vacation, it will immediately notice the efficient management that is inherent with private ownership. In fact, a supervisor of the resort told us that even Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo G. Marañon Jr. and family pay when they stay at the resort. Mambukal Resort as an economic enterprise made a profit of P9,332,884.68 from 314,412 visitors in year 2010 alone. Here in Iloilo City we have also the Economic Enterprise Department which manages the slaughter house among others. But can we be successful (make money for the City) and efficient as the Economic Enterprise Development Department
(EEDD) of Negros Occidental which has developed Mambukal into a premier tourist destination in the country. R.A. No. 1964 which established Mambukal Resort as a town site in July 22, 1957 is also a factor in the success of Mambukal because it does not have to share its income with nearby town of Murcia.

IX. Major customer profile
Mambukal is open to any guests, national or international. It has been a household name in the City of Smiles. A trip to Mambukal has been a sort of nature pilgrimage for the family every summer. A perfect place for eco‐tourists and adventurous tourist, they can try bird or bat watching and feel the excitement of unusual activities that can be found in the Resort and be close to nature. Mambukal Resort is also a sanctuary for the Philippine Fruit Bat or what we know as Flying Fox? Bats are a common sight in Mambukal, perching on tall trees and their usual spots are those near the Dipping Pool by the Bridge which happens to be one of the areas where these bats have their dwelling and proven by the deposits and stench of guano. The small river under the bridge is actually an upland body of Bago River which finds its source up in the mountains. The resort’s camping grounds and picnic huts for families who want to enjoy their company with each other. The resort has accommodation facilities and convention hall in which, business tourist and educational tourist can be accommodated for meetings, exhibitions and special events. The resort is famous on its hot springs and spas that invite health or medical tourist. The high sulfur content of the red mud by the Sulfuric Pool makes for a good mud pack. In fact, some tourists make it a point to take some mud for skin care use since sulfur mud is known to treat skin diseases and makes the skin soft and supple. They also encounter cultural tourist for the resort is well known for their festivals that invites tourist to discover the enchanting stories and history of the Mambukal. And lastly, the leisure tourist who wants to rest and relax and have a break from the usual routine, they can do activities such as swimming and experience therapeutic warm dipping pools and be away and unwind. Mambukal Resort definitely remains a top destination for both tourists and locals alike.

X. Market Strategy
“Marketing is a social and managerial process by which individuals and groups obtain what they want and need through creating, offering and exchanging products of value with others” (Kotler, 1991) “The concept of the tourist marketing consists of creating the supply (marketing mix) corresponding to the identified demand at the tourist market, while using product, price, place and promotion, which allow to identify, inform, motivate and serve these markets in the best possible way.” (P. Filatro, 2004) Recently, Provincial Planning and Development Officer (PPDO) and Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Division- OIC Marlin Sanogal (left) with EDP staff Ken Eliserio (2nd from left) and Jan Bilbao (right) present the Mambukal Resort Mobile Brochure App for Android to Gov. Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr at the Capitol, last March 2013. The new mobile app aims to promote the province’s Mambukal Resort to the global market. The new app is now available via Google Play for free and can be downloaded and installed on smartphones, tablets, and phablets that are powered by the Android OS. The project team is composed of Project Head Bjorn Aguilar, Project Manager/Designer/QA Ken Eliserio and Project Developer Jan Bilbao. Mambukal is well known as the “Picnic Capital of Negros”. Its market strategy is to held big events and conferences. Since it is connected with the Government officials, it easy for them to refer the said resort as a venue for any conventions and events.

The provincial administration of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. had been tapping investors for Mambukal Resort, to cater to a wider market for tourists, said Ellen Marie J. Vasquez, resort manager. “The governor had been inviting investors from the foreign business sectors and from the private companies to bring in new innovations that will improve the entire resort with attractive package and new tourism offers,” Vasquez said. A five-story hotel that will cater to high-end vacationers, picnic groups, both for local and regional clients had long been proposed by the provincial administration, Vasquez added. Recently, the resort constructed seven villas, out of 28, with complete amenities to accommodate increasing number of tourists, Vasquez said. In 2012, a total of 301,795 tourists visited the resort, most by the locally initiated gatherings, occasions, and events by the local government units for their official meetings, conference, seminars, and workshops, and other office-work-related functions. The government is exhausting effort to find ways and means to maximize resources to a highly competitive and attractive level of resort business operations, Vasquez said. “We are really expanding the resort into more viable tourism package so it can generate more revenues for the province,” Vasques said.
