a SAFE place to have your family vacation without the crowd. It is like owning the island by yourselves where you can feel and breath in the sea breeze without having second thoughts.

Hands down to all staff who was very friendly and approachable during my stay. I felt so safe when i knew their staff are staying in-house and having quarrantine before they can report back to work.

Food was superb and the rooms was great but It can use little bit upgrade. The Spa was amazing (a must try)

We travelled in several countries already and stayed also in 5 stars resorts. But this is the first resort, where we came now the third time and will come for sure every back. The Manager Ryan takes always care, that the guests are 100% happy and get a unique service. The food is not only one of the best we ever got in a resort, it is also very healthy ( own organic garden). We can only recommend this special place in the south of Cebu.
Thank you very much dear Ryan, that we could stay again with our family in this fantastic resort.

I have been wanting to visit the resort since I saw one Instagram account post a photo of their place. Visited their website and saw that the price was a tad bit too steep, until they came up with their February promo of 65% off on their room rates. The timing could not have come at a better time since my mom, who was back in the country with her US non-profit organization, just finished their outreach and medical missions in Cebu, and we could not wait to culminate it with a relaxing weekend after 3 months of planning and hard work.

Booking direct on their website was a breeze, and paid via PayPal. Upon arrival at their port at the side of Badian, Cebu, the security personnel assisted us right away in calling for the boatmen to help us with our luggages. We needed to use their boat to transfer us to Zaragosa Island, where the resort was located.

We were immediately greeted by Ronnel, who was their OJT personnel, with leis made out of the Kalachuchi flower, and with that top-dollar Filipino hospitality. He took us to the front desk where we met 2 more very friendly personnel who assisted us with our check-in (sadly, I totally forgot their names). We were greeted with a cold towel and their very refreshing welcome drink.

Everyone in the resort was so happy to see us and greeted us with big smiles -- from the porters, to the gardeners, the massage therapists, the restaurant staff, activities staff, everyone. Their resort was very clean and well maintained. Their rooms were also amazing. We stayed in their family room and their precise attention to detail was very well noticed by my family, as we are very critical to the little things.

We had our massages and a dip at their man-made Talaso pool. Their massage was two thumbs up. Their therapists were simply amazing. They even decorated a bowl of water with their flowers and leaves and placed it under the hole of the massage beds, so that we would be looking into the colorful flowers instead of their floor.

My family and I really had a wonderful time at the resort. And let me just add, the food was scrumptious! It was also reasonably priced considering that we did not really have an option to eat anywhere else but the resort's restaurant or room service.

It was a memorable stay, and I would love to bring my friends over for another relaxing overnight stay. Apparently, the resort has been around for 30yrs already, and I only heard of them early 2019s. I would definitely be back for more.

Thank you, Badian Island Wellness Resort!!

If you're looking for island living experience with city life convenience you are in the right place. If you're going to choose the pool villas is even more perfect, your own pool is situated over looking the sea facing the beautiful facade of the mountain.

You're ideal dining experience will never be the same once you experience the island beach dinner. While having your wine the young talents of the island will showcase Filipino folk dances which you are welcome to join them after their performances.

You can also enjoy the other world below the ocean together with the island's own licensed scuba divers or you can arrange tours to enjoy nearby Kawasan Falls.

Truly this island has a lot to offer but I will never forget the warmth Filipino hospitality of the staffs.

I'm coming back soon.
