Travel time from the airport to the pier in Coron is around 30 minutes. Then a boat ride from the pier to the resort is approximately 40 minutes. Upon arrival at the resort, Guest Relations will meet you at the beach and she will bring you up to dining area. A fresh coconut will be wating for you for a... More

Without a doubt this resort is one of the most beautiful I've ever been to - about 400yds of pristine palm fringed beach with the sea in front and a rocky cliff behind all sheltered from the worst of the wind. The staff were great - they didn't do the extra mile, they did the extra marathon, nothing was too... More

We were traveling on a private yacht and after some snorkeling around the local wrecks decided to anchor for the night. I'm glad we did. When we arrived on shore the staff were welcoming and friendly and just blew us away. The whole experience was perfect and we will definitely come again...but this time we will spend a week! The...

First off I read several reviews that were negative here, so arriving at the airport and being picked up by a van overloaded with 15 people I was nervous. Then we were transferred to a very small speed boat. Once we arrived at the resort it was dark but looked good. I mentioned to the resort owner about the overloaded... More

We initially planned to stay 5 nights and end up staying 8, because we liked so much the place (beautiful resort, well maintained, both authentic and comfortable), the people (the staff is very friendly, always smiling and willing to help you, diving masters, Jo and Luc, are really professional and of course, Andy, who runs the place and pays attention...

We spent a week diving thre and it was really great, thanks to Andy, JoJo and the dive guides, Caloy and Ed. The wrecks were really great, never climbed one before either. Totally good time and would really recommend it. When I have saved up the money I will be back.

We spent almost a week on Sangat Island, and really enjoyed our time there, thanks to Andy and his great and fun team: Very relaxed, yet well taken care of, great diving with Master JoJo (including a few amazing wrecks and a diving license for one of us), delicious food every day, beautiful, peaceful sunsets and nights at the bar....

I really enjoyed the resort. It's completely isolated from the main land and you are forced to totally unwind and relax as there's no internet, tv, radio, mobiles, etc. Between dives all there is to do is to lie in a hammock and read a book and have a drink. The resort is classed as an eco lodge and power... More

We spent Christmas on the island and it was a wonderful experience. The huts are lovely and the beach is beautiful. On our second night there, we got engaged! So lots of special memories on Sangat! The staff are so helpful. Jennifer was willing to take a few photos for us and Brian did an amazing job creating a champagne... More
