Wonderful Vacation
This was our families second stay at Kandaya and it is still just as wonderful as it was for our first stay last year. From the second you walk in, you’re treated exceptionally well and check in is a breeze. They are expecting your arrival and basically everything is taken care of before you even arrive. After having one of their larger suites last year and realizing we didn’t need all that space, we booked their “deluxe” room (which is a great room as it is), but because this was our second stay, they recognized that on booking, and upgraded us to a “premier” room on the second floor with a large balcony looking straight at the ocean for free. It’s things like this that will have us coming back for years to come. It seems like November is not their peak season, which was great for us because it felt like we had to resort and spa all to ourselves. The cuisine at Kusina, their restaurant, is varied and fantastic, so you won’t ever be bored during your stay. The bartender makes some great drinks as well (a mojito with calamansi can’t be missed). The spa gives some of the best massages and body treatments in the Philippines. All in all, from the staff, to the dining, to the activities available, to the rooms, Kandaya is really a 5 star experience. If I have one complaint, it’s that the kitchen staff would call our room every night at 930pm after our 2 year old daughter had fallen asleep to see if we wanted anything from the kitchen before they closed, which was annoying. I mentioned this after the first time it happened, but we still received calls on our next two nights. Each time it woke up our daughter (when we were trying our hardest to get her over jet lag). Having family in the neighboring area, we had some meals outside the resort, which I guess is rare for the typical guests that stay here, so I understand their concern, but they should be calling so late, especially after I asked them to stop. Lastly, I’d also mention that the resort is about a 3 hour car ride from the airport, and I recommended the hotel provided shuttle service if you don’t have established contacts in Cebu. If you’ve never driven in the Philippines, get ready for the experience of a lifetime on your way to the resort. I promise in the end it’s well worth it. I’m already looking forward to my return trip next year. Thank you Kandaya for another wonderful vacation.

Beautiful secluded resort
We started our honeymoon in Kandaya and we could not have been happier to do so! People went over the top with excitement to please us and our needs! And extra praise for the restaurant which is organic and all of their dishes of the highest quality! We got an upgrade to a beautiful room and that was just the beginning of our excellent stay. We enjoyed their stables and rode horses by the beach, had an extra hour of horse riding lessons and were very well looked after. There is a beautiful small farm and I was flabbergasted to see everyday their chickens and rabbits and exotic birds! We went to Malapascua which was an amazing experience too! iIts definitely woth the ride, you will have an excellent time!

We stayed in Kandaya Resort last August 2017 for 3days and 2nights. it's a 3-4hrs drive from Mactan airport. we hailed a taxi going to the resort and paid, 2k pesos. if you want cheaper option, you can opt to ride a bus or Van. The moment we stepped inside the resort, I was astounded by how beautiful the resort is. The staff were very accommodating and the GM were there to welcome us. They even served us with a welcome drink, fresh buko juice to be exact. We arrived an hour early so we decided to grab our lunch in KUSINA. I love how you can see the ocean view from where you are dinning in. I immediately fell inlove with their infinity pool facing the ocean. Our room had it's own swimming pool. The room was very cozy that you'll want to lay all day. The bathroom had 2 separate sinks and a bathtub. It was so spacious you can sleep inside the bathroom. we also have our coffee maker (which i had fun using), our mini refrigerator. The Resort was so quiet it felt like we had the resort to ourselves. We also enjoyed the complimentary Kayaking. Unfortunately, we were not able to experience the SUP as it was too hot and low tide during that day. Our kandaya experience is one for the books, and we would love to go back there. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful and uncrowded vacation, consider Kandaya on your next vacation. :)

An Oasis on Cebu
I save my 5-star ratings for those special resorts that have it all - location, luxury, and service. Kandaya fully deserves the rating in my opinion. Although the location, in absolute terms, isn't the most attractive, the owners of Kandaya have created a true oasis within their 14 hectare property. A gorgeous modern Asian minimalist design throughout gives the entire resort an open and relaxed feeling. Although my wife and I were there in a low season and it seemed we had the resort almost to ourselves, I feel that the design and layout of all the facilities won't feel crowded even during the busiest times. We had one of the ocean-view suites, which was quite spacious, beautifully decorated, open, light, and airy. Really a pleasure to spend time in the room or on the large veranda, although with many activities available you probably won't want to. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool and beach areas - the large pool is very nice and although not a true 'infinity' pool it's unique design makes you feel that it's on the edge of the ocean. The well-spaced lounges are comfortable, and the poolside food/drink service was most welcome. The natural beach isn't the greatest but is nice at high tide. Although the winds of the season blow both natural and man-made debris onto the beach, the staff did a nice job of keeping it clean. Low tide however is very low, exposing hundreds of feet of unattractive mud flats. I think for that reason the resort built it's own central 'beach', elevated from the ocean by a wall. Many activities are included, such as water sports (use of kayaks, SUP's, various paddle boats), a full gym, morning stretch and yoga sessions, etc.. Extra cost options including martial arts training, spa/massage in a beautiful facility, snorkeling/dive trips, and even horseback riding are available. While walking around one day we were fortunate to meet Michelle, who manages resort operations and the equestrian center - one of the few places in the Philippines to offer riding lessons, trail rides, and such. One wonderful program she's implemented is a 'pony day' where children first learn about caring for a pony, then are rewarded with a ride. She also has a small 'zoo' with various birds and small animals. Unique experiences offered by a unique woman! One thing about Kandaya is that you're pretty captive in terms of food - there are restaurants in the nearby town but I think they'd be a pretty sketchy experience for most people visiting Kandaya. Considered on it's own I wouldn't give the restaurant 5 stars - it's a difficult job to please people from all over the world and their culinary tastes, but I think the restaurant does a pretty good job, offering a variety of dishes from Filipino, American, Italian, German, Thai cuisines and more. Everything we had was well-prepared and tasty. All the fish served in the restaurant is fresh and locally caught; a majority of the vegetables and herbs used are grown in Kandaya's own gardens. Making (or breaking) a resort experience is always the staff. Everyone we met at Kandaya was most friendly and helpful in any and every way. I especially commend the restaurant and bar staff who were very knowledgeable about the menu, and very comfortable communicating at least in Tagalog and English. I wouldn't be surprised if they can handle other languages as well. Very well trained! Thank you, Kandaya, for a memorable experience. We will come back some day!

Good to bad experience
Where to start. i was there beginning of 2017 stayed for 3 days. the hotel is 3 hours away from the airport once i stepped in the hotel i was amazed on how beautiful is the resort. i booked a villa with a private pool its was really beautiful i enjoyed it with my husband. the breakfast was ok my husband didnt like it because he is not familiar with Felipino food. the in room dining was good but the menu was limited, if the food is not available why put it in the menu. the food and the drinks we ordered had coconut plus the welcome drink. all of that coconut made me really sick. the pool was clean and beautiful. i didnt like the beach it was dirty. The wifi connection was really poor in the villa so i had to sit outside at night while mosquito's biting me to use the wifi lol.anyways on my last day i got really sick i was vomiting the whole night until i checked out from the hotel to the airport i was sick for 3 days also on my last day while my husband was packing my stuff he said your watch is not here. i am really upset that they stole my GC watch worth of 817 dollar in this 5 star hotel i mean come on. Do i recommend this hotel? (Yes) but be careful from the food and keep your eyes on your stuff even if its in the safe box. would i come back to this hotel again (of course No) so please if you found my watch please message me. الصراحه ما انصح هالفندق
