Badian Island Resort is a beautiful, relaxing and welcoming place to stay. It is worth the three-hour drive from Cebu airport. You are welcomed on arrival with a flower garland and drink. My partner and I stayed in a pool villa, which was massive, with a stunning view from our private pool. Every day the staff decorate the rooms with flowers. There is only one restaurant on the island but dinner is served on the beach or by the pool. The staff will try to up-sell you meal packages which are quite expensive (but do include a large amount of food and drink). It is cheaper to order off the menu each day. Happy hour is between 4:15 and 6:15 at Shell Bar on the beach. There is also a games room where you can enjoy your half-price cocktails while playing a game of billiards. The resort offers a number of excursions off the island, including a guided tour of Kawasan Falls, island-hopping and whale-shark watching. It is worth saving some extra money if you wish to partake in more than one of these, as they are quite pricey. The resort has a PADI dive centre. You can obtain your full diving accreditation in two days or do a half-day beginner course. The island is close to coral reefs filled with amazing marine life. The customer service is excellent; they will go out of their way to accommodate you. The island is great if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday; there were few other guests during our stay in August.
