“An Island Experience - A Sagana Experience”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

I have bathed in the serenity of this amazing paradise several times ....... the allure of this beautiful little island and the hospitality of Sagana Resort keeps bringing me back. You are not a guest here ..... you're part of the "Sagana Family" .....no matter how long or short your stay. You decide your 'experience' - Whether its kicking back in the hammock with a good book, lazing by the pool, island hopping, learning to surf ....or charging the barrels right out the front @ Cloud 9 ..... its all about YOU! There is so much more to Sagana than what can be written in any travel brochure. From a massive breakfast menu (happily served in the viewing tower overlooking the surf) to the amazing and constantly changing dinner delicacies ..... it really is all about YOU!!!! To Gerry, Susan, Edna, Reggie, Marnie (TGAG) and the gorgeous Miss Lily ............ A HUGE thank you .......... you know I will be back AGAIN!!!

Room Tip: Let Gerry & Susan decide ............ just tell them what you are after!!!!

From the moment we set foot off the plane we were looked after and spoilt by amazing hospitality, spectactular views and quality waves.
The rooms at Sagana are huge en-suites, clean and spacious! The food served there is outstanding, but the best thing was the hospitality, nothing is too much to organise and Gerry and Susan will try and make your stay the best one ever and for me it truely was paradise. We can't wait to go back, white sandy beaches, warm tropical water and beautiful sunshine.

Sagana Resort was perfect for a last minute surfing holiday - only managed to stay for 3 nights but everything was perfect. Sagana is located right at Cloud 9, where a few more properties are now lined up along the coast, but it's quiet and peaceful in this part of the island - which you really get to appreciate when perched up in the open-air, thatch-roofed viewing area/extension of Sagana's restaurant, looking out over the reef and surf.

Sagana is deservedly well known for its food - great fresh fruit salad & pancakes to provide enough fuel for the day & great choices from the changing daily menu for dinner to replenish the body after a day of kicking back in the hammock or trying to stand up on a surfboard.

It's all pretty laid back (as you'd expect in Siargao) but it's also no trouble for Gerry or Susan (your hosts) to organise anything - surf board hire, surf lessons (with a former local champion, no less), news on events at the local feista (late Sept) and info on running around the island (8.3 km round trip from Sagana - Siargao - Sagana ..... only recommended in the cooler part of the day!)

I was originally a bit worried about the lack of ATMs on the island & limited ability to use credit cards, so it's quiet good that Sagana (& other resorts on the island) just let you run a tab for all drinks and pay with credit card or cash at the end.

All too easy at Sagana.

Soooo not being the most fwd of planners, my trip down to Siargao and Sagana was relatively last minute. That said, from first point of contact until stepping back on to the departure shuttle, it's clear that Susan & Gerry have a intuitive understanding of what hospitality is all about.
- Need a surfboard? Got you covered.
- Snorkeling gear? Here's some handy.
- Last Minute boat trip to nearby sites? Not a hassle at all...need a lunch to take with?
If you want a great experience where it all just 'comes together' here's definitely where you should stay.
Cheers and see you guys again!

Susan and Gerry made this trip much more memorable than it was already certain to be. Getting out of the hustle and bustle of the major cities and hiding out in small surrounding islands is the only way to truly experience the Philippines. This alone is guaranteed to be a memorable and amazing experience, as our entire trip was. We spent five weeks in the Phillipines, travelling from north to south and east to west. Now back home, a couple months after our trip, only one spot truly stands out as the highlight of the trip. Sagana. From the service, to food, adventures, to the rooms (plural, we tried out two, in what was initially supposed to be a 6 day stay, turned into 10 when we just didn't want to leave.) We couldn't have asked for more. I could go on and on, but think its just better that if your heading to the Philippines, definitely go to siargao (especially if you surf) and you MUST stay at Sagana. Comfortable, casual, clean, knowledgable, and inviting. Thanks to Susan and Gerry for making our stay so lovely.

This place is amazing,

we stayed in a cute cottage looking straight out to cloud 9...
the bed is comfy and you sleep under a net to keep out the mozzies
the staff organise anything and everything you need, i hired a board for the whole week, my gf had surf lessons... we hire motorbikes, went fishing, island hopping toured around the island... really felt at home here compared to anywhere else we went in the philippines.

getting up early and surfing, having an arvo sleep... what a life

and the food... OH MY GOD... breakfast lunches and 3 course dinners... wow...

Thanks Gerry, Susan, Lilly, Edna, Marni, Naoki and the rest of the staff

Coming here was the best part of our trip to the philippines

Room Tip: ask for the cottage 1 or 3

Without a doubt THE place to stay in cloud 9. Susan, Gerry & Naoki are the perfect hosts and their hand picked staff are second to none. Super friendly and relaxed vibe for the whole stay which is exactly what you want from a paradise like this. The hosts are also a wealth of information for local knowledge and are ready to organise day trips to islands, bike hire, boat trips to the reefs for surfs….ANYTHING!
The cottages are clean and comfortable (island style just as they should be), and fit in with the tropical garden setting looking out to Cloud 9. The bathrooms are contemporary and well equiped.
Onto the food – I can’t say enough good things about the food here. An extensive menu on offer every day, I didn’t have the same meal twice in a weeks stay. By far the best food I ate on my holiday was at Sagana.
You really feel at home here from the moment you arrive, it’s more than a resort, it’s an experience. It was sad to leave, but I left knowing that one day I’d be back for sure!

Ps. I noticed “Barry’s” review – may I suggest Barry that you email God in relation to the weather and condition of the roads (as I’m sure all the other resorts and accommodations suffered from the same problem at the time) At least he’s upholding the Pommie whinger flag :)
