I really feel bad to discover this place just very recently considering how close I am to it and I still can't believe we have such a beautiful paradise that many locals still have to experience. We arrived quite late in the evening yet everyone including the owners were there to welcome us warmly. We were greeted with live music,... More

Unfortunately our arrival at this resort pretty much coincided with the arrival of tropical storm Jiangu in the area, so this may have coloured our views, but we feel the following assessment is fair despite this. It is a hugely long transfer from Cebu airport, 3 to 4 hours being common in often dense traffic, weaving in and out of... More

Few hours’ drive from Cebu is this wonderful resort situated on the Badian Island. The island and the resort is surrounded by pristine clear blue water and white sandy beach. On arrival we were greeted by a singing troupe. After check-in we were taken to our villa that faces the ocean. The rooms have a very rich ethnic feel to... More

the Resort is neat and pretty, the food is delicious, the rooms are pleasant. But it's the people, who make this place feel like home and as if they really care about you. Rudy takes care of the corall garden. he walked us through the island, when we were strolling around the gates. he took care of us for 1,5h... More

Our family enjoyed our time at Badian Island Resort and Spa, but the rooms could benefit from upgrading, especially the a/c unit that didn't work on our last night. And there was no wifi in our room, only in the balcony. I think the landscaping around our villa was a bit untended. But the service was great. It is a... More

Me and partner were here from 10 to 13 Aug 2014. Was an unplanned holiday. We just decided to escape from the tiring city and tight work. We’ve been hearing about Badian but never considered it before due to its location and maybe some of the reviews we have read. Anyway, since we just need a quiet place to relax,... More

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD! The real Badian Island experience. A $500 a night resort with $50 dollar kind of service!!! No doubt the island is beautiful(as an island) but the resort lacks of many things to justify their $500 a night rate. Several points...First the bed is not even 5-star comfort (see picture) it's under manpower, the restaurant has... More

The resort is located at a very isolated but nice/pretty location, the entry to resort was superb and we got in with high expectations as they claimed it to be a five star facility. However, as we spent more time, we were in for more and more disappointment. We were finally glad that we had to spend only one night.... More
