The nearest operating commercial airports are in Silay City, Negros Occidental (Bacolod-Silay International Airport) and Sibulan, Negros Oriental (Dumaguete Airport).

Meanwhile, the best way going to Sipalay is thru land travel and it  will take 3 hours using a private vehicle while 4 to 6 hours when commuting.

Take note: Travel time is 10 to 15 minutes and expect a bumpy ride especially at the end part before reaching the resort as roads are still unpaved.
