I was visiting Manila and was totally bored of the city scene. Without knowing where to go, I asked the girl I was dating at the time who found this place. Scandi is tucked away in a land far-far-away. It's located on beautiful lagoon. Absolutely spectacular views, spare no expense. The best part of my trip was the scuba diving!...

Visited Scandi Divers Jan 2017, and stayed there for a week. Lovely people, cozy atmosphere and skilled dive instructors. I took an underwater photography course with Roni who works at Scandi, which is highly recommendable if you want to take better photos under water. Very enthusiastic guy, who knows everything about photography ! Would love to visit Scandi again.

In and out of the water, they took care of me. Conon (our instructor) was the best. He made sure that we had everything we...

I and my brother went to learn Open Water in Scandi Divers and we had a great time there. Richard Morante is our instructor and we feel lucky to be his students. I think it is pretty important to find a good instructor because during Open Water courses you will learn all the necessary knowledge for dealing with dangerous situation...

We spent 10 days at Scandi and despite the conditions not being the best after a major typhoon, we had a lovely time! The area is super nice and quiet (not like horribly loud nearby Sabang).
