Recent guest reviews
Such a romantic place to stay!! Away from all the pollution from the city centre. Great evening shows where it highlights the Filipino cultural dance which makes me proud as a Filipino wherein foriegners was active to join the cultural dance.
This Resort would be a great place to hop in after swimming with the whale sharks at Oslob. The Island has its own charm that really lures you to stay longer and detach yourself from the city life. Rooms are perfect and huge together with their signature flower on your bathtub and bed. What I love the most was their goodbye song during departure which made me cry and hopefully I would never leave the resort again.
Never expected a luxurious resort here in Badian which was around 15 minutes away from Kawasan Falls. It was a phenomenal experience, riding a speedboat to reach to the resort pump my adrenaline with excitement. Expect a fresh flower lei, cold towels & fresh juice upon arrival which was an excellent touch. The rooms will really blow you away! It is literally huge with and design has a touch of Filipino materials. This is the place where you can find peace for your soul and mind.
This is the perfect definition of paradise! It is an escape to another world just to have the perfect quality time with my husband. Wish I knew the place earlier, we might consider the place as our honeymoon😍 Really had a excellent stay. Hoping to see you soon in my next visit
Overall very nice experience On the positive side, the rooms are very big and clean and the resort grounds is beautiful. The restaurant food is very good and he hotel offer some entertainment during dinner. The staff was all good as well They have a snorkeling spot next door but it's nothing special and they have a good dive shop in the resort itself. Value for money is OK as it is a bit pricey (I guess you ph for the location) and the hotel rooms could use an upgrade (even though you pay shangri-la prices, the amenities can't be compared.
Badian's popularity has spiked for the last two to three years since the outdoorsy adventures became established, mostly comprised of the kawasan falls canyoneering, osmena peak hike, oslob swim with the whale sharks, moalboal swim with school of sardines and turtles, to name a few. For travellers seeking a luxurious accommodation whilst completing the whole tour, badian island wellness resort is perfect as it is sitting right in the heart of all the adventure spots. A quite location with splendid views, very hospitable staff, the Badian suite was a very spacious romantic room, pretty landscaped gardens and great food and cocktails choices to boost. While the resort needs a bit of a modern touch to it (dont bother thinking about buying souveneirs from their shop), its gradeur remains after 34 years of being in business. Sadly, the thalasso spa has not been maintained and not anymore serviceable. But the main swimming pool is there, around where they sometimes serve romantic dinners and host entertaining shows at night, like firedancers, the harp player and cultural shows.
Prepare for a time-consuming trip from Airport to resort.It's good for us since we book a private shuttle from the airport going to hotel. The hotel will charge you for a certain amount depending on the number of persons. The picturesque view of the island gives me such peace. A very good stress-free holiday from the point of getting burden at work. You’ll experience the flora and fauna setting that you haven’t seen in the City. The room is huge. The Spa which certainly helps relieves our stress.Beautiful corals and very good for snorkeling. The evening shows were definitely awesome with guest participation program. The food was superb. The restaurant's staff were excellent from the chefs to the waiters, very friendly and attentive.
The perfect place for a getaway. A paradise where you can forget those unwanted events in your life. My friend suggested to go for a short vacation after a long set of exams and school works so why not try Badian Island Wellness Resort. Though we never thought we would ride a boat going there but hey it's an island so what do we expect... Upon arriving to their wharf 2 beautiful ladies welcomed us and have given us a flower garland or is it called flower lei, not sure..Then there's scented towels and welcome drinks. Then at night they have this evening entertainment that includes fire dancing...The staffs are very welcoming and the food is great...Their rooms are big and the food is great... Me and my buddy Mason really enjoyed our short vacation...
Nothing was too much to ask, friendly and fun loving staff made our stay such a joy. We had chosen Badian Island Wellness Resort as a pitstop for our Kawasan Falls canyoneering and was glad to do so. The food served at Panorama was top notch. It was many times better than the food we had on the previous day at another top resort in Oslob. Returning to our pool villa after a long day was lovely and there were fireflies right in front of the tree outside our villa. Cons: Lots of ants, lizards and mosquitoes. Nothing out of the ordinary for a tropical island getaway. You get the birds and the bees.
Truly a wonderful experience. As you go down from the mini port they will give you a lei. The staff are welcoming with their bright smiles. I love the rooms! Specially the Badian Suite and the Pool villa. It stays true to its concept. Paradise! Right when you enter the room - the sheets have a good thread count number and the interior is refreshing. It is a secluded place and you will forget your busy life in the city. You have everything you need in the room. They have a panorama view of the sea from the restaurant. The food is prepared with love by chef Chu and is very tasty. They have an oragnic garden if you want to visit. I love staying in Badian. You are truly on a holiday. For those who wants a lot of amenities it will not give you the sense of calmness and worry-free time. Spend your day walking at the beach and going to the spa. Be on the hammock and read books. Stop and smell the flowers.
