The Villa Marmarine is one of those places where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. It’s a uniquely satisfying beach resort for folks who desire a low-key change of pace. The staff is eager to please, the restaurant never disappoints, and a fine beach is just steps from your cottage. You can sleep soundly, knowing that just by enjoying Villa Marmarine's hospitality you are helping to fund improvements at local schools and vocational training for local youth.
Villa Marmarine is a happy blend of Japanese and Filipino ideas about relaxation. It realizes the vision of the Haradas, who after many years of teaching at schools abroad, set out to build a very special resort on the north shore of Siquijor Island. Neither too big or too small, low-key and friendly, distant from the buzz of motorbikes, the resort has grown cottage by comfortable cottage over the years. No two are alike; each is an exemplar of local craftsmanship.
The guests during our five nights at Villa Marmarine were a diverse group. We mixed easily, encouraged, I think, by consistently positive vibes from the resort staff and random wi-fi outages. My wife and I particularly enjoyed our meals. The restaurant is on a deck with a fine view of the sea. Service is attentive, the food fresh, and the cooking (both Japanese and Filipino) excellent.
