Me and my friend arrived as early as 4am, glad we were able to get a nap on their waiting area until 6am. When the tender is already available, we took two tickets for a day tour. Good thing we ask how far is the whale shark watching from sumilon and we were surprised that it was like 5-10mins away...

We had a day tour in Bluewater Sumilon Island last month. The best part in our day tour is the trekking. I did not expect that there's a great view from the peak. The food from the buffet lunch is good, the customer service is exceptional and the staff are very accommodating. If you are planning to visit South Cebu,...

The resort's main selling point is the beauty of the island. However, there are a lot more things to be happy about this resort. The sand bar is amazing, the food is great and safety is always a priority. There is no reason for you not to enjoy your time here. It's definitely worth the price.

Can't complain of the island-- it was beautiful even if it were challenging at times to reach a certain destination. Management just took in a lot of guests that day and boy, did the restrooms stink! There were a couple of times that toilet paper ran out and the serving staff were running around the whole time, obvious that they...

Awesome service and very nice rooms, money well spent on this island resort. We were well taken cared by the resort's attentive staff inspite of the rainy weather and rough seas crossing from mainland to the island and back. The buffet spread has significantly improved since I last visited the place.

Nothing grand, our priority was just really to bond & relax. But it offered enough activities for us too. The trekking path was interesting, there's the lighthouse, the view, the fort, the cave, the marine sanctuary...it equals ADVENTURE! Though it was a series of unfortunate events for us at the start... service was truly frustrating & disappointing! But as I...

I was really excited for my stay at the Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort because of the fact that there is only one single resort on the whole island. That’s a huge private island! And I didn’t get disappointed. Throughout the entire time I was really impressed by the resort, staff, rooms and food. First of all you check in on...

The best part of this resort is the natural beauty of the island. The water is crystal clear and has an almost unreal turquoise color. The sandbar is great to hang out and the marine sanctuary is perfect for snorkeling. You need to swim from the sandbar to the sanctuary but it's not far. The sanctuary is just full of...

Upon reaching the resort, I was thankful that we will only be there for the day. The facilities were average and the general upkeep of the surroundings was below what I have expected. If you check their room prices online, their rates are unreasonably high! The beach, of course, was amazing! The buffet food at the beach side area was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 24-hectare coral island, located on the Southeastern tip of Cebu, is home to Bluewater Sumilon. Pristine white sand beaches abound. Its sandbar is known for its changing shapes and shifting locations around the island, depending on the season. There is a natural lagoon teeming with high mangroves. On the south side, a lighthouse rests on a protected tree park and a "Baluarte", a 19th century historical watchtower. It is also home to the Philippines' first marine sanctuary.At Bluewater Sumilon, let the islander's easy-going friendliness shine through and keep the pace low-key enough to let you feel pampered. ... more   less
