Hello everyone, my family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Badian Resort and Spa most recently. I'm saddened by the harsh reviews I have read in regards to this property. Our experience was nothing but wonderful! The property was very well kept and the staff was amazing! I have never received such service as I did at this resort. Yes it is pricey and yes it is remote, but perfect for the traveler who is looking to get away from people and the hustle and bustle of busy day life. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of our holiday. First of all, we flew into Cebu and had a transfer (purchased with the resort) pick us up. I loved the 2 hour drive though the island, it’s amazing and crazy how everyone drives. We really got to see the city and its people, hundreds of little shops filled the streets with all sorts of smells and colors, but keep in mind this is a poor country. My family and I felt very lucky to be living in Canada, especially since we saw how other people live across the world. Once we made our way out of the city we drove through little towns and up through hills, it’s very beautiful. Before we arrived at the Badian Resort we hopped on a boat which is maybe 2 minutes to the property. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome with song and dance as well as a refreshing beverage and cool cloth. Check in was very quick and easy, the very friendly staff took care of us right away. We were then escorted to our "Badian Suite", which by the way is huge! What a marvelous room!! We were all very impressed by the size and especially the open concept bathroom (flower pedals filled the tub). Also this suite has a balcony with table, chairs and hammock. We spent mornings drinking coffee and eating fruit on our balcony. If we weren’t eating we were enjoying there spa, wow I can’t say enough about Badian Spa! I also went to the spa at Plantation Bay and El Nido during our Philippines trip and they pale in comparison to Badian’s Spa. The food was wonderful and we really enjoyed the poolside dinners and of course the beach party dinner we went to on our last night there. The service we received at Badian was amazing, the staff really goes out of there way to may there guests happy. We also had the pleasure of dinning with the owners, they were wonderful company and really want all there guests to have a memorable experience at there property. I can’t possibly write about all the wonderful things Badian has to offer, I’ve just listed a few that my family and I had the opportunity to share. I would go back here in a heartbeat and recommend Badian Resort and Spa to anyone who is looking to be treated like gold and relax in pure paradise!!!!
