This is the perfect holiday location for everyone who just wants to relax in a classy yet homey setting: Far away from the fuss in Moalboal The Blue Orchid offers a beautiful garden, big and clean rooms, outstandingly friendly staff and a first class snorkeling reef just in front of the house. We didn't mind that there was no sandy... More

The Blue Orchid Resort is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed in. The room was comfortable and clean, with a massive bed and a lovely balcony facing the sea. Food was good, and it was great to chill in the restaurant and chat with Michael, the owner, Melissa, the manager, and the other guests after my daily... More

This is the place that I've dreamed about... The beach is beautiful, on the north of white beach, and also private, the icecream-sellers cannot disturb you. The apartmans are big with a huge bed :) the staff is very nice, the manager and the owner are very friendly and helpful. The food are very tasty and they have also european... More

This is a perfect getaway from the busyness of Cebu. The staff are relaxed and friendly, the food is delicious and fresh. The rock pools this time of year are magic and the snorkeling is great too! We stayed just two nights but would have loved to stay longer. There is quite a bit to do in the area and... More

I got curious about this resort after reading all the positive reviews. When we wanted a place to just chill, relax and get away from all the stress, this was my first choice... and I'm glad we went there. The place was right beside the sea. You can literally walk into the open sea one minute after leaving your room.... More

The Blue Orchid Resort is just awesome. We were looking for something that was quiet, homey and a resort that looked like it “belonged” on the island. The great reviews of the place are absolutely accurate and we were beyond happy at the hospitality, food selection and preparation and the overall feel of welcome at The Blue Orchid. Both the...

By far the best resort we stayed in, in the whole of South East Asia, The management and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Its such a relaxing awesome place to really unwind and chill out. The food was incredible and the service was second to none we couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Well where to start. Maybe with a fact, that I regret rating any previous accomodation with 5/5, because now Blue Orchid deserves not only 5/5 but at least 6/5. It really is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. Yes, it is located right by the sea and the resort is spacious and well maintained. Yes, the views are spectacular.... More

I planned to stay for less then one week in the Blue Orchid Resort, but eventually stayed for two weeks, I just couldn't leave... It's a small resort, beautifully located on a coral riff, with a lot of trees and a nice garden. Waking up with the sound of singing birds, looking from your balcony over this garden and just...

We stayed three nights at Blue Orchid Resort. It's a small hotel with a very good atmosphere (maybe around ten rooms I guess), not so many guests so you can quickly know everyone. Rooms are big enough, bathroom is correct and included air condition. View of the sea behind tropical trees is beautiful and we heard many birds because it's... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong at the end of and just 5 minutes walk from the 2km White Beach. With just a short drive away from Moalboal, and Panagsama it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn’t get any better for diving in the Philippines as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of the resort with dive boats anchoring there daily. All you have to do is walk down from the private man made beach with your gear on and start your dive, which is perfect for beginners and also for snorkelers. The resort’s architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day’s dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. ... more   less
