  • We held our office retreat here. We requested they provide us a Retreat Master and they gave us one of their monks. And the experience was truly enriching. It was light, heartwarming and we did laugh from the talks. We felt rested and reconnected to ourselves, to others, to mother earth and to God. The daily prayer with the monks was truly soothing and harmonious. They were very accommodating, they gave us copies and guide us as to what page to looked at. For their facilities: their common CR was very clean. Their bedrooms were also very clean and we were provided with 2 pillows and 2 blankets. Their brewed coffee was open 24 hours and you could bring some to your bedroom. Their hospitality was truly heartwarming and we couldn't ask for more but to be able to come back again.
  • This place is soooo solemn and peaceful. Love to go here when in need of reflection and self recollection. It's just 10 to 15 minutes away from malaybalay city center so why not drop bu when you happen to be in malaybalay? It's surrounded by natural forest and very spacious inside the church.
  • A peaceful place and haven. You'll feel so closer to God because of the ambiance of the place and this is one of the reasons why I fell inlove with Bukidnon and I'll come back to this place again...
  • To sum it all up in one word: SURREAL The facade gave me a sense of reflection. The entire place allowed inner contemplation. Center of the solemn atmosphere is the pyramid church structure surrounded by nature. There is an astonishing view of the landscape. The interior is as humbling as the outdoor ambiance. It is built with wooden ceilings, hardwood seats, and glass doors. Everything is simply put together in a very minimalistic approach. The church observes proper attire and it's important to avoid wearing shorts or sleeveless shirts in entering the Monastery. The Benedictine Monks established a souvenir shop for religious articles. It is the same store that supply the finest coffee in the province also popularized as the Monk's Blend. There are other local delicacies available at an affordable price. The best souvenir that every traveler can receive here is the opportunity for momentary stillness. A visit to the Monastery is a great break away from the city, a serene place to meditate and veer away from the noise of daily life. Monastery of Transfiguration is approximately 130km away from Cagayan De Oro, an ideal addition to CDO-Bukidnon itinerary. The location is a 15-minute drive from Malaybalay City via Sayre Hi-way.
  • A peaceful and serene place; great for personal reflection, nature photography, meditation walks and rest. Good food too. Not for those looking for a fun vacation.
