We have just returned from a holiday in South East Asia which included a 5 day stay at Bahura Beach Resort, where we enjoyed a superb break. Our main focus of the stay was to dive at Apo Island a World Heritage site as well as other dive sites around the area.
The hotel is truly boutique with tasetfully furnished rooms with sunken shower cubicles. I would recommend a premiuim deluxe room which has a small balcony. We upgraded as the deluxe rooms on the third floor although very nice are a little like garrett rooms. The staff are also very friendly and helpful willing to attend to all your needs although service is very slow - still you are on holiday. For those relaxing around the pool the furniture is a little uncomfortable some mattresses would improve the loungers, however the pool is spotlessly clean.
The food in the restaurant is excellent. The hotel have recently appointed a new chef (Warren) who is passionate about the local cuisine and very happy to advise on all dishes served. The choice of food in the restaurant is from a daily set menu and beautuifully presented. Currently there is a limited a la carte menu for those who like fast food. This I understand is going to change as the chef adds his own more adventurous and tasty recipes. The delicious home made breads served with the dishes are some of the first ideas to be put onto the menu and the packed lunches for hungry divers are something else!
The hotel has a dive centre where we booked all our dives (3 or 4 a day). We were a little apprehensive at first with a slight communication problem with the staff. However, don't be put off,after an orienteering dive and an inspection of the boats we were sold. Our dive guide took us to some really good sites where we were usually the only divers there. Apo island is a must for those like me love the coral gardens- current strong in places. We took our own gear but the centre had a supply of equipment for hire and after each dive the staff cleaned everything and hung it up ready for the next dive. The sunset dive off the house reef is a must for the mandarin fish.
Just give them a chance - ideal for divers, couples and those who are not interested in a lively night life.
