Stayed for 4 nights and did not regret it. The place was great, clean and well maintained. Rooms are spacious and has a walk in closet. That helps me from keeping our room clutter free. It was very comfy staying inside that I do not want to go out. The FOOD, dah, it was awesomely delicious. Its what I miss... More

After suffering rundown mosquito-infested accommodation at Cloud 9, Buddha's was an incredibly welcome respite. Rooms are extra-clean, very comfortable and thankfully free of insects. I booked 8 nights here and would have stayed longer if the rooms weren't fully booked (so we moved next door to sister hotel La Luna, which I also highly recommend). Ashley & Chris were both... More

I joined Buddha’s Surf SUP Yoga retreat last July 2014. Was it awesome? Hell yeah! I’m a newbie for both surfing and yoga, I've never been to Siargao and I was totally nervous about going alone. But it turned out to be one AWESOME experience! I went to Siargao alone but came home with one of the most memorable trips... More

From the first moments you arrive at the resort, the welcome is just amazing, we were greeted by manager Chris and some welcome fresh iced coconut drinks. The rooms are spacious, well decorated, and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Nothing is too much trouble, and Chris deserves a special mention for his patience and humour, and his...

I moved here from another resort half way through my trip. This move totally transformed my trip! Chris and Ash were fantastic hosts who went out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. Chris arranged lots of trips so that as well as surfing I got to see as much of the island as possible. All... More

The tall palm trees, the refreshing greenery, and the native wooden fence, and the ivory concrete topped with traditional nipa roofing features make a good blend of modern design with rustic surroundings. We had fresh buko (young coconut) juice as welcome drinks. The superior room includes an A/C, hot and cold shower, a double bed, a flatscreen TV, an HD... More

Chris & Ash were awesome, most amazing hosts who went out of their way to look after me & everyone else there. Buddhas is a very cool place, accomodation is very comfortable, food is great. At first I thought it was a little bit out of the way as its 2km from Cloud 9, but it turns out to be... More

Buddha is the perfect place to chill in between surf sessons. The food's great and the rooms and really comfy, with air-con and a hard-drive full of movies to watch. We loved the slack-line and Indo board as well. Owner Ashley is a great guy and willing to help in any way he can, and stand-in manager Chris was also... More

We arrived at Buddhas at 4pm to be greeted by a very friendly Chris, the interim manager. Drinks were served and then we were promptly invited to join an impromptu SUP-yoga session by sunset. We surfed every day with Chris, some excellent local instructors and other guests and were able to borrow Chris's motorbike for a jaunt around the island.... More

It's all about the people. Chris and the staff were very accommodating with our requests, making the stay worth it. They were always open to answering questions about the island and what else we could do with our short stay in Siargao. When our flight got cancelled, Chris was very generous to let us all stay in the family room... More
