Nestled on a white sandy beach amidst the northern tropical landscape in the island of Cebu is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Land, sea and sky meet and blend seamlessly to form the postcard-perfect backdrop of KANDAYA Resort, an idyllic, luxury destination located in the coastal heart of historic Daanbantayan. Named in homage to Datu Daya, an ancient brave tribal chieftain whom once stood as protector of old Bantayan, this piece of paradise located north of Cebu, offers an enviable mix of serenity, adventure, relaxation and tradition to reinvigorate the body, refresh the mind, and uplift the spirit.
Kandaya Resort’s wide and vast expanse of powder white sand makes it by far the best beach resort in Cebu at the moment. Notwithstanding the high thread count sheets, the in-room Nespresso machines, the Illy coffee served in every cup or the heavy weight cutlery. The state-of-the-art gym with adjoining boxing and crossfit facilities. A spa surrounded by koi ponds. A horse stable. A basketball court and a tennis court. A dive shop with boats to nearby diving sites like Malapascua Island. Or the army of smiling staff happy to see you there.
There’s nothing quite like the conformed mix of relaxation, nourishment and revivability that pretty much sums up a break at the Kandaya Resort. The exclusive 7-hectare paradise (plus, another 7-hectare plantation) nestled in the coastal heart of historic Daanbantayan is a serene haven for those who wish to recharge and rejuvenate away from the hustle and bustle of the metro.
It isn’t a surprise that Kandaya Resort has rapidly become one of the favorite go-to places in this part of Cebu. The resort is an intimate utopia where one can unravel from the daily redundancies of living in the fast-paced metro, and it’s extremely stunning picturesque scenery is one of the hotel’s ascendancies.
Kandaya is properly one of the Best Resorts in Cebu. Arriving at Mactan-Cebu International Airport, there is approximately 3 hours transfer to the resort. Kandaya located up north on the island. But as this drive is in a comfortable luxury van with refreshments, you are relaxed and ready to enjoy Kandaya at arrival. As a part of the welcome ceremony you get the a wet towel and drink, before the key for your paradise villa is handed over.
