Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours.

My friends and I really enjoy the atmosphere in this Arcadia😌 It takes 15 minutes by tricycle from the moalboal town. I took the diving course, and my diving instructor guided my patiently and systematically. They even give a short lesson to the discover diver, and that makes

Went there on honeymoon. Even before our arrival everything was handled professionally and promptly. Airport pickup was on spot. We arrived really early and awfully jet lagged, and were very quickly arranged accommodation even before our check in time. This type of treatment

Hi Mor & Roi, Wow, what a review - thank you so much for taking the time to write such kind comments! We have shared this amongst all of our staff as it really shows that hard work pays off, and we're so happy to know that you had such a good stay with us.

Hi, not in the Deluxe rooms, only in the honeymoon suite we have a personal safe fitted. There is a safe in reception which is availble to guests, we have staff working 24 hours and as our former guests mentioned it is a very safe resort - forgive the pun ;)

Hi Melicor, The price of the airport transfer depends on whether you require a car/van, and how many people it will be for. Most of the ride is on good roads, but the last part (5 minutes) of the road leading to the resort can be a little bumpy. All worth it once you arrive, though! Warm regards, The Blue Orchid Team
