An island that decided to fully convert the place to become one of a perfect getaway destination in the east coast of Samal.

Beautiful Resort, beautiful people and beaches are the real deal to have a leisure at its best.

The resort is scenic with multiple pristine water with soft white sand beach (some parts of the beach are too rocky) and a clear turquoise ocean.

Come and meet new friends, and have lots of fun and vibrant nightlife.


Amenities that are great.

HOW TO GET THERE? (Taken from their site.)

When travelling by private car:
It would take you between 45 minutes to 1 hour to drive the 24 km. cemented 
road from the Caliclic ferry boat wharf to Kaputian proper and the 
12 km. all-weather dirt road to the resort, passing thru 
Barangays San Isidro and Libertad. After the gas station in Kaputian there 
are signs guiding you to the resort.

For the first - timers to the resort, we can arrange somebody to guide 
your way from Kaputian proper upon request. Just locate the only 
gas station (Holy Infant Gas Station) at Kaputian, a few meters from the 
bus terminal area, as the rendezvous point.

Passenger (More than 1 pax)     -       10.00/pax
