LOOK: This ‘Friends’-Themed Resort in Bacolod Would Make Any Fan Swoon
One location worth adding to your Bacolod travel itinerary.
by Ina Louise Manto | September 17, 2021
When we enjoy a movie or a show, there will come a time where we add its filming locations to our travel bucket list, especially when it’s a show known globally and has studios you can easily visit, just the hit 90s sitcom Friends. While we wait for international travel to return to normal to visit the Central Perk Cafe in Singapore or Warner Bros. Studios in California, you can still have the same feeling of entering the set of the show in Bacolod.
Limewood Residences at 25th
Nestled right in the heart of Bacolod City, Limewood Residences at 25th is the home of the viral Friends-themed resort and it would make every super fan swoon. The cast may not be there (wink!) waiting for you, but you can still enjoy taking photos at familiar filming scenes such as Monica’s iconic purple apartment door, couch at Central Perk, and fountain seen in the show’s intro.
The owners are (quite obviously) avid fans of the show, and they designed and decorated the resort to resemble famous filming locations. One of the best places to take photos is by the pool, where they’ve installed a giant Friends logo on the wall.
Unlike in Singapore where there’s an actual Central Perk Cafe, the replica at Limewood is simply for picture-taking. It’s actually a part of a function room, which is perfect for when you rent the resort exclusively. If you want a Friends-themed celebration, there’s no need to spend additional fees on decor anymore!
Limewood has exclusive rooms available for day tours and overnight stays, with rates starting at P995 without pool access.
