Kandaya Resort is a fairly new luxury destination located at the northern tip of Cebu called Daanbantayan. It’s a 3 hour drive from Cebu city and a boat ride away from Malapascua Island.


The resort was very nice and new, complete with gym and spa facilities, a gaming room, a cross fit and boxing ring, tennis and basketball courts, a horse riding venue and a number of private pools outside the beach front and garden villas.

The bed was very comfortable, room was indeed spacious and everything you need or expect from a luxury or 5 star hotel, you will find here.






The resort is exclusive to the guests so you won’t really see a lot of people walking around… perhaps during summer it will be more packed.

The sand in their beach area is just okay though, not like the world famous Boracay sand. But the beach is clean and it’s actually good for families with children. Also, you can go paddle boarding or kayaking for free, or take a boat ride to Malapascua Island for some snorkeling or diving.


We visited over the Valentine’s Day weekend and it was really nice and relaxing. Always good to check out different spots in the Philippines. Kandaya is perfect for a weekend away from the city especially if you just want to relax and unwind. ‘Til my next trip… Summer is coming and I am very excited! 🙂
