According to Kabalarian Philosophy, the name 'Kandaya' means a happy person and desiring to see others happy as well. One who strives to inspire others through an engaging sense of humour. Someone whose fond of surprises and are quick to respond to spontaneous invitations which promise a good time because he has an expressive, fun-loving nature. I AM KANDAYA. It's ME! It perfectly described my personality and speak much of myself. Yes, that's exactly the same feeling and vibration I felt deep within me in the Kandaya Resort, the very moment I had my first step going to the golf car driven by Eduardo Condis Jr from the parking space. This 40 hectares postcard-perfect luxury destination is owned by Cebuana philanthropist Dame Mariquita Salimbangon Yeung, founder and chairperson of MSYCFI (Mariquita Salimbangon Yeung Charitable Foundation, Inc.). Nestled on a white sandy beach located in the coastal heart of historic Daanbantayan, the northern tropical landscape on the island of Cebu. This relaxing and serene paradise is a perfect haven for adventurous souls like me where the sea, the sand and the sun meet and blend seamlessly together to uplift my spirit, refresh my mind and invigorate my body. It was love at first sight and this is my perfect dream resort Staycation I've on my mind for my #BucketList2021. It feels like I was instantly transported to a world class tourist destination of another country outside the Philippines. My quarantined globe trotter soul leaped for joy filled with much amazement. We were in the midst of our Northern Cebu Visita Iglesia, when Drs. Michael & Michele Cotia surprised me and Kawi for a first class dining experience at Kusina Restaurant with my most favorite Filipino food of all time~ Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali among other Filipino dishes with the panoramic sea view and fresh air that makes our dining experience truly remarkable with the excellent customer service of Ms Joanna Geñete (Director of Sales & Marketing) and Marketing Specialist Ian Baol. One thing that truly caught my attention is the restaurant's interior features 'fishnet-like'. This is perfect for physical distancing among the guests following the standard health protocols. As if you're dining in a fish net bubble made of bamboo, especially now that Metro Manila is under the so-called NCR Bubble to ensure social distancing. One thing that I love in this idyllic resort is the picturesque main building which is overlooking the iconic infinity pool and the magnificent view of the sea. My resort day tour photos totally captured that beautiful scenery with the help of Janz Mondejar. On my next trip, I asked the universe that I will have my dream staycation in the Garden Villa with own private pool or Beach Pool Villa with private pool located on the beach front.

My bf and I had a wonderful time there. Pros: 1 - Awesome service, everyone was doing their best. Always smiling and providing personalised service. Apparently the owner used to work for The Peninsula Hotels before his retirement. Top-notch service! 2- Little incident on the room facility, they upgraded us to the pool view suite 3- The whole experience was very private and relaxing 4- a variety of activities, e.g. Snookering, water bike, horse riding, island hopping (highly recommended) 5- Had a very great time dinning on the beach. It was very romantic and personalised Cons: 1- The location is a bit far from the airport, 3 hours car ride. The hotel could arrange pick up 2- Only one restaurant in the resort. It was a bit hard especially we are foodie. In terms of food options, I think its a mix of local and international cuisine 3- Nothing much around the area. So if you don't mind staying in the resort during the whole trip, then this is the place for you. Honestly we found it quite okay coz we did a bit of island trip and water sport.

We had a wonderful time here. The beachside villa was modern and clean luxury with all the amenities. A giant bathroom, huge private pool, and a clean beach. The restaurant was delicious and had tons of local foods to try. And the staff helped us with any request They even arranged a pick-up from Cebu. Everything was excellent.
