Restaurant: The Restaurant of Buddha is a nice Thai cousine with a good selection of meals. Going from breakfast to dinner.

Resort: The Resort has been the best place I've been to in my month long travel through the philippines, or as I would call it, home.
Everyone in Buddha will make their best to make sure you have the best stay in Siargao and always have a smile for you. From recommendations to just having a talk with you and telling you about the best places, they are always happy to help.

The accomondations are cozy and will be cleaned up daily. For people that like to stay in touch with there beloved ones, they also got wifi in the rooms and resort areas.
As I already have been surfing I booked a surf package for improving and had the best time in the water, always guided to good spots fitting to my level.

For me, that makes a highly recommendet stay!

We stayed at Buddha’s for a couple of weeks and couldn’t have been happier with it. The place has a really cool, relaxed atmosphere and one of the best restaurants in the island. The Thai food there tastes so good. Pad Thai and Massaman curry were my favourites - they were just as good as in thailand, and I’m not suprised. Apparently they import all their ingredients from Thailand and have a Thai chef there too.
If you’re looking for good surf then buddhas is a great place to start, no matter what your ability - their guides are ripping local surfers who know each break like the back of their hands and will take you out and push your ability while keeping you feeling safe. They don’t just take you to the same crowded breaks as well, we went all over and some days were the first boat there and had the wave to ourselves almost until we left!
Can’t rate this place highly enough. I’ll definitely be back!

Booked pretty much last minute with the awesome Bobbie via email. I was travelling alone and she made sure I was collected from the airport and well looked after. When I wanted to extend my stay and there was no availability, she made sure I was fixed up at the neighbouring guest house and made to feel super welcome when I returned as a “non-guest!” This place feels like a family both guests and staff each welcoming each other. Super location with easy access to the beach and there’s plenty of bars and eating joints (Buddha also has an epic Thai restaurant which I’d highly recommend!) within an easy walk. All in all a top place, highly recommended and I’ll definitely be back!

My partner and I recently stayed at Buddha's resort and absolutely loved it. We were greeted by the beautiful manager Bobbie who told us that Buddha guest and staff are a family, and it really was. The staff went above and beyond in making our experience enjoyable, they really made our stay in Siargao. From showing us the best places to surf and explore, organising trips and introducing us to their friends and family. The rooms are lovely and include all the amenities that you need. The yoga and restaurant are also a must!

I really enjoyed my stay in Buddha Surf Resort.
I spent 9 wonderful days in the standard room sharing with my brother.

The room was spacious enough, and the bathroom also. Neat and clean. They came and clean the room daily, offering new towels and bedding if it was needed.

Breakfast was included in the price. I choose Surfers brekkie which was perfect after a morning session in Secret Beach.

I did 7 days of private surfing coaching to improve my surfing skills and confidence.
My instructor, Kelvin was very professional and patience with me, choosing suitable board for my level and upgrading also when I got confident.

The Staff at Buddha was super kind, always ready to help, share some tips, good times with us.

We went on the 3 island hopping which is a must if you happen to be in Siargao. Gew Gew was our guide that day and made are adventure memorable.

I was really satisfied overall.
Thanks to Bobbie, who made sure everything is perfect during our stay and also recommended some cute coffee spots and restos around General Luna.

I can only recommend to stay at Buddha

Thanks everyone
I will definitely come back

My partner and I stayed at Buddha's Surf Resort back in november 2019. We had the most fantastic stay ever, the best of my 4 month traveling in fact. The resort has its own restaurant, the food is absolutely delicious and I loved the breakfast.
The manager, Bobbie, welcomed us with a big smile. She helped us with our stay in Siargao, always there when needed. The room was big and always very clean.

We took a few times surf lessons with the Buddha's surf coaches. The surf coaches were just amazing, we had such a great time.

We enjoyed our time at Buddha and made friends for life. We will definitely come back soon.

I called last minute to book 5 nights and ended up staying a whole month. Buddha was just so comfortable I didn’t want to leave. The place is extremely well managed by Bobbie and all her staff is awesome. They are super friendly and really know how to make their guests feel at home. We had such a great time together.

The rooms are spacious and very clean, the garden very well maintained, and the outdoor seating restaurant serves delicious Thai dishes. During my stay in Siargao I had online work to do and Buddha was perfect for this, offering the right balance between privacy and social life.

The main reason I chose Siargao as my destination was to learn surf. Buddha assigned me Daniel, an off the charts local instructor, and we had so much fun on our daily surf sessions. With him I went from being a total newbie to be able to ride pretty well sized waves.

I also went to the island-hopping tour with three other guests at Buddha. Trexia, a member of the staff, was our tour guide and she made sure we had a fabulous day out.

I stayed at Buddha for a week and booked the 7 day surf package.
The staff were so friendly and helpful, Bobby is an awesome host! The room was comfortable and big. Breakfast was good. They helped me to rent a scooter and also sent my laundry out for me. Also they have 2 super cute dogs and the place is really safe with a security guard at night.
The surf lessons were good but to be honest, I wouldn't book the package again as it didn't give me freedom to just rent a board and surf. The weather was so rainy during Feb so I didn't get to do all the trips but we had a island hopping day which was cool.

Would definitely come back! :)
