A scenic 4-hour drive from Bacolod City (or 3 hours from Dumaguete) will get you to a paradise that is Sipalay. Tucked in a beautiful cove, this resort in Campomanes Bay is the perfect getaway for those who want to escape the city rush, disconnect from the outside world (although WIFI is complimentary), and hopefully reconnect with themselves.
Bugana means abundance in Ilonggo. And it is only fitting because of the richness of marine life and the beauty of nature that surrounds Bugana Beach And Dive Resort. This place is love at first sight. Planning my next trip there as we speak.
The spacious Terrace Rooms (PHP 2,200) have their own private balconies with a view of the pool.
Their luxurious villas (PHP 3,500 per night), on the other hand, are perfect for families. These rooms can accommodate up to four people, and feature a private dipping pool with an amazing view of the sea.
Bugana is a stunning, family-friendly beachfront resort. And even if it is situated on a public beach, the beach is clean and tranquil. Although, take note that the resort does not have a private parking area. Cars are to be parked at the port, a short 1-minute walk to the resort.
Aside from its excellent amenities and service, I am singing my praises for its food. Don’t miss their pizzas and specials for the day. Everything is just top-notch!
Explore the islands nearby. With so much to see in Sipalay, it would be a shame to skip snorkeling, diving or island hopping. The hotel can arrange a trip according to your liking. Or, if you prefer to stay in the resort, they also have paddle boards and kayaks for rent.
