You can call me a lucky girl because I had the opportunity to explore Siquijor without spending too much. I was able to visit majority of its tourist attractions in terms of beaches, waterfalls, churches, caves and many more. Aside from that, I can say that I am fortunate enough to do a ‘resort hopping’ in this beautiful island of Siquijor. If you’re looking for a possible destination for couples, I suggest that you consider staying in some of the best resorts in the Island of Fire. Rawr!
NOTE: This is arranged according to the date of visit! Thanks to Dylan! 😀
KAWAYAN HOLIDAY RESORT – San Juan, Siquijor
It is the first destination in Siquijor that we’ve been to. I didn’t really expect much about this place when we were in the gate entrance, but got really surprised when I finally entered the resort and saw its breathtaking view! The fifty pesos entrance fee is justified.
There were a number of couples checked in when we went there. I can say that it is the best honeymoon spot in Siquijor. Who wouldn’t fall in love with this kind of resort? Check promo rates!
THE DANISH LAGOON – San Juan, Siquijor
The Danish Lagoon is owned two Danish-Norweigan couple. It seems like they brought Denmark in Siquijor by naming their villas based on the books of Christian Andersen. One of the resort’s attraction is the statue of The Little Mermaid. Check for discounted rates!
The staff on duty who accompanied us was friendly and nice. No need to pay for entrance fees and they even allowed us to check the rooms. It is also a good place for couples or large groups who would rather stay in one place than gallivant around the island. I think they offer some diving lessons too.
THE FIREFLY COVE BEACH RESORT – Enrique Villanueva, Siquijor
If you want a more personalized service and in a way live like a local – the luxurious way, I suggest that you check out The Firefly Cove Beach Resort. We were lucky because the owners were there that day and allowed us to enter and take pictures. According to them, they do cook and serve for the guest. They treat every visitor as a family member.
It is also said to be one of the places in Siquijor with the best sunset view. I checked some of their rooms and they’re pretty nice! They also allow other visitors to do snorkeling and kayaking in the beachfront.
LAZI BEACH CLUB – Lazi, Siquijor
Getting there is quite a big challenge – liblib kung liblib! Â We almost got lost and wanted to go back to the main road. If you want some time alone to write and reflect, I think the Lazi Beach Club is best for you. The sister of the Filipina owner made us feel at home and introduced us to the Canadian owner. For promo rates, go here.
It is a place best for writers especially if you want to finish one novel. Writing with the clear beach as your view is just too ideal. In a way, Lazi Beach Club is also perfect for lazy people… like me =))
VILLA MARMARINE RESORT – Siquijor, Siquijor
Based on my observation, I think Villa Marmarine is popular to tourists and locals alike. It is one of the most established resorts in Siquijor and the Japanese owners have contributed a lot to the success of the place. I’ve also read a number of blog entries with positive experiences in the resort. We asked if we can possibly check the rooms, but they were fully booked that day.
When in Villa Marmarine, you can take a leisure walk and explore Â Candanay Sur and Norte beaches. This place is best for families and even for solo travelers. The cafe facing the beach is just inviting for bloggers who want to work on their blogs while on vacation.
So there you have it! Although budget traveling is recommended if you want to explore more places without spending too much, I guess it is ok to spend on luxury travel from time to time as a reward to yourself… or for that special someone. There’s a number of good holiday package deals that suits you and your partner anyway. Because of this Resort Hopping activity of ours, I can now safely say that Siquijor will soon be the Top Honeymoon Destination of the Philippines! Why not? <3
