Finding Hidden Island Resort

Filed under: Travel Experience — Tags: , , , , , , , , — scarletnii @ 12:21 am

December 2010, when my family had our Christmas Holiday non-stop travel and tour from Dahilayan, Bukidnon to Surigao sponsored by our very own Manang Babets and Jo. What inspired me to blog this place, it’s because of their preserved and untouched environment .

Going to Sohoton Cave about 30 minutes boat ride from the resort

To give you a map on how to get there here’s how. From From Surigao City, 1 hour land trip to Hayanggabon, Claver then 30 minutes boat ride to the Island and if your from Dapa Siargao Island, 1 hour boat ride to Hidden Island Resort. If you’re from Cebu you could have a daily flights of Cebu Pacific and Air Philippines or an overnight boat ride of Cebu Ferries and Cokalion Shipping.

 I definitely find the place so serene and private. For those people who want to escape from their busy work and city life, you don’t need to go further Hidden Island Resort is the best place for you. It’s breathe taking, soul captivating and relaxing. You could clearly see underneath the water fishes, turtles, millions of jellyfish and more marine life. They has great diving spots, one of it is the Sohoton Cave. I find it very exciting since it’s my first time to do caving and diving. Yes! I able to conquer my fear after almost an hour deciding if I will dive or not 🙂 They have a sanctuary of jellyfish too and I able to hold them. Wow amazing that’s all I can say! Oh FYI the place is so safe from heavy rain and storm since the island is surrounded with mountains.Jelly Fish Sanctuary

Aside from great spots, they served bunch of sea food too. Yummy! Clams, shrimps, squid, lubster and more take note they’re all big. Can you imagine that? Not a in a day that I felt hungry 🙂 >> Guys I only have few source of food photo here, I’ll add if I find more.

 The facilities and accommodations is worth every penny. From their rooms, stilt retro bar, hallways and bridges which every tourist would enjoy viewing surrounded with live corals and marine life. Definitely, my eyes was filled with beautiful and refreshing scenarios of the place.

Anyonghaseyo Everyone!

Janice and I spent our weekend with a treat to ourselves. Funny, because it was out of planned when we abruptly decided to take our lunch in a Korean Restaurant.  Since, were hooked to Korean movies we even tried to eat Korean food once in a while like Kimchi. It’s our first time to taste such Korean food signature. Guess what? It’s spicy and sour in taste, good thing I can’ resist spicy food.

Aside, from Kimchi we’ve taste other Korean food too but I can’t remember their specific name though. Mabye you could figure it out from the images below.

We really enjoyed our weekend treat. After that full lunch were off then to a relaxing spa treatment at La Cabana Spa.

Hope to be there in Korea so soon Wish..wish 🙂
