Salamangka Beach and Dive Resort in Siquijor Island is one of the newest resorts on the island. It offers modern stylish rooms, some having some wonderful ocean views. The cheapest room type is its Garden Cottages. The rooms are although a little small, are modern, comfortable and clean.
For those looking for a bit more space and luxury they have their Ocean View Loft Rooms. These are more spacious and have the added luxuries of cable TV, mini bar and balconies (the Superior Ocean View Loft rooms having the best views in the resort). These bathrooms also have a Jacuzzi bathtub. Wi-Fi is available in all rooms.
The resort has a gorgeous swimming pool where you can relax, drink and chill out under the tropical sun. Unfortunately (as I have said in the video) the beach front is a bit of letdown. If you wish to swim you probably will be doing it in the pool. Salamangka Resort also has its own dive shop, gym and open air restaurant. I found the food pretty good (a touch on pricey side).
Overall this for me this is a well recommended resort in Siquijor. It is an up market resort on the island and I think it succeeds in this. It’s a great place to stay and a lovely resort to look at. Not only were the staff were good, the owners too were very friendly and helpful. It is a bit isolated, so you will need some type of transport to get to and from the place. Most resorts on Siquijor offer pretty simple cottage type accommodation, Salamangka Beach and Dive Resorts gives you a bit more luxury (although not 5 star), for Siquijor standards anyhow. If you are looking for a stylish resort in Siquijor this could be the place for you. I would rate Salamangko as good.
