Antulang Beach and Apo Island

We were in Dumaguete last weekend for our annual company outing. We stayed at Antulang Beach resort.

Nestled 40 kilometers south of Dumaguete City, Philippines, ANTULANG BEACH RESORT is proud to be the first Philippine resort to offer private pool villas to guests.  Each of the flagship accommodations comes with its own swimming pool (no plunge pools here), heated Jacuzzi and luxurious, spacious rooms all decked out in Canadian pinewood.

Suspended on ten sprawling hectares of sheer cliffs peppered with a kaleidoscope of bougainvillea blooms, swimming pools and premium rooms are positioned right at the cliffs’ edge, ensuring guests a commanding view of an endless sea, while winding staircases lead directly to a kilometer’s stretch of isolated white sand beach strewn with large, natural rock formations.  So on any given evening, let the gentle lapping of waves caressing boulders on the beach lull you to sweet, glorious slumber, and catch up on unhurried, leftover dreams of Antulang...

There's a winding staircase on the cliff; crystal turquoise waters--I am in love!

We also visited Apo Island via a yacht ride. Sosyal! The lovely Annabelle Lee!

At the island, we were greeted by these:

Snorkeling at the Marine Sanctuary is a must! The Apo Island is one of the top ten diving sites in the country and the world! A multitude of marine life awaits one's eyes!

The place is very much preserved, a diving instructor told us the view underwater was replicated somewhere in US! Big time! It was low tide during the time the we dipped at the waters- we had several bruises on our legs. You can't step on the corals-- one small step may crash them.

On our last day, we had a yacht cruise to Tambobo Bay.

It was so picturesque, you thought you'd only see it on postcards! =)

I had a great vacay at Antulang-- one of the best I've been. BTW, according to this site, Antulang belongs to the Top 10 Luxury Resorts in the PH! Winner!

I also had my several FIRSTS here:
- yacht ride

- finally tried kayaking

- dipped in an infinity pool

- rode a horse

Plus -- buffet meals for two days! Can't ask for more!

Antulang is the best-- spectacular views, amazing and warm staffs, excellent food-- I give it 10 stars!

Such a lovely place..such a lovely place.. =))
