Badian Island Resort is an exclusive luxury resort in Cebu’s south. The resort is a few minutes boat ride from the mainland of Cebu, Badian Resort has its own helipad allowing for a quick 25 minute ride via helicopter from Cebu Airport. Most people though will take a taxi either from Cebu’s airport in Mactan or from Cebu City. The trip will take you around 2 and half to 3 hours. Expect to pay around 2500 -3000 PHP. Alternatively you could take the bus from the Southern Bus Terminal and get off at Badian Town. The actual turn off is a couple kms out of town but there are no waiting habal habal drivers on the corner. Once you arrive at the pier, a staff member will call the resort’s boat to take you across to the island (5 minute ride).

On arrival, staff great you with some friendly singing helping you get you into the mood for your tropical vacation on the island. Here you will get a welcome drink and you will be offered a pre-paid meal package. Basically this allows you to pay for your main meals upfront. For the lunch and dinner inclusion when I stayed was 3200 PHP. This allowed you to eat up to a maximum 1600 PHP worth of food each meal (1600 x 2). This meal plan actually favours the resort. If you eat over this amount you need to pay the extra amount. But if you don’t eat up to the set amount (i.e. 1600 PHP) you don’t get any of this credited, you just lose out! My recommendation is not to take this and just pay the meals as you go.

Relax at the resorts natural SPA. Enjoy their massages, wellness and Thalasso treatments. Their signature massage is Badian Deluxe Four Hand Massage. They also have Hilot, traditional and seaweed massages. The spa also has pools using ionized seawater as well as sauna. Again in the pricey side.

Badian Island Resort also offers plenty of activities. There are water sports such as scuba diving, snorkeling, hobby cat, aqua cycle, banana Boat, windsurfing or paddle-boats. Day trips can also be arranged to popular places as Kawasan Falls and the whale sharks in Oslob.

Badian Resort has its own private white sand beach as well as a swimming pool in which guests can swim or just chill under the sun. The beach area just looks picture perfect and definitely one of the highlights of the resort.

For dining the resort has the Panorama Restaurant located next to the pool. The food I found to be generally pretty good just on the pricey side (you can see the video for Badian Island Menu). Some nights (weather depending) they set up tables on the beach front. Here they had live singing and sometimes dancers (again see video). I found this quite nice while I ate. If you’re up for something a little more romantic try dining on board their yacht. For those wishing to cool off from the tropical heat the resort has the beach bar to refresh yourself with a cocktail or beer. Head here after 4.15 pm for half price cocktails.

For the actual rooms the Badian suites are luxurious and large, although somewhat dated in appearance. They and all come with their own private balcony with sea and mountain views. The Pool Villas coming with the luxury of a plunge pool. The suites come with king size or twin beds, air-conditioning , hot and cold water showers, bathtub and shower, minibar, hairdryer, bathrobe, slippers, tea/coffee Maker, telephone and in room safe. The suites do not have any TV. They have access to free Wi-Fi.

Although it is the only resort on the island, there is a small village behind the resort that you can walk to. The island is quite small and it easy to walk around and meet some of the friendly locals.

Badian Island resort is a perfect place for you to relax and pamper yourself.

My Review of Badian Island Resort

This is my second time to visit. I did it a few years ago, not a lot has really changed since my first time. The most noticeable difference was having the Wi-Fi to the rooms. The rooms still look a bit old, though they are a good size and I love just chilling out on the balcony. The beach front area is just beautiful, just what you dream about when taking a tropical vacation. The staff are so friendly and helpful with the warm Cebuano hospitality. As I have said in the video, the biggest let down for me is the price. If you have the cash then this is a place definitely worth checking out. I give it a rating of Above Average.
