Badian Island Resort and Spa

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary a month ahead of our actual 10th year in this little island paradise in Cebu. This place is just perfect for that second honeymoon that we’ve been dreaming of having. It was made possible by Cebu Pacific, who held a contest a couple of months, from which I emerge as one of the winners.

as we were approaching the island

Badian Island Resort and Spa is part of the rural town of Badian which is situated southwest of Cebu. It is a good 2.5 hours travel by land from Cebu International Airport and 5 minute boat ride from the drop off point. At the onset, I was a bit apprehensive about travelling that long since it was our first time in Cebu and we really don’t know much of the place, but all my worries flew out the window when we started passing by quaint rural towns that I used to hear only in the news like Baliri and Carcar. I happily took in the sights like a little girl out on her first ride.

Badian Island Resort and Spa is, what can I say, simply breathtaking. It is like nature’s perfect canvass where the elements of sun, sand and sea clearly mixed very well together. It is postcard perfect, weather and all.

We stayed in this beautiful island resort for three days where we were cocooned in one of their pool villas, which is spacious, warm and cozy. I liked the thoughtful way they left tropical flowers everywhere, giving the whole room that intimate “Aloha” feel.

I super loved our room which has its own mini-infinity pool with the perfect view of the landscape at the deck area. I also enjoyed taking endless showers (with hubby*wink*) in this sun bathroom.

We stayed out during most of the days though, dipping in the pool, frolicking in the sun, and swimming in the beach.

On our first night, the resort hosted a “South Sea Evening” dinner where we were entertained by the island’s resident crooner and booty dancers. We wined, dined and danced the night away. It was truly an enjoyable night.

On our second day on the island, we hopped on the boat and proceeded to the Coral Garden on the opposite side of the island, where we did some serious snorkeling since this is the best site in the whole island for that. There was indeed an amazing garden full of the most beautiful and colorful corals that I have ever seen in my whole life in there. They are even better than the corals of Palawan. Some are as huge if not bigger than me. We also had the most romantic lunch by the sea courtesy of the resort.

Back in the resort, we also tried the spa in their Natural Thalasso and Spa. I had the Baidan Island Spa and my hubby opted for the Badian Hilot. It was heavenly, we were treated by expert hands indeed.

We super loved our stay in this beautiful island. We had the most romantic time. It truly is the perfect getaway for honeymooners and for those married couples renewing their vows. The place really grows on you. I was teary-eyed when the whole staff serenaded us with their send off song as we were leaving the island. It was a memorable three days for me, something that my husband and I would always look back to when the going gets really tough and we need to hold on to some happy memories to keep us moving.:)

    Hence, the heart has to work so hard to get the blood pumped through those arteries that it can actually enlarge and damage the
    heart, eventually causing a heart attack, stroke,
    aneurysm and other heart problems if left
    untreated. Add essential oil drops to a bowl of steaming water.
    What if you save $ 150 for hospital visits and give medical advice.
    The course of action of garlic is that it causes thinning of blood and
    reduces the chances of blood clotting. There are quite a lot of antihypertensive medications out there, and they have different mechanisms of action.
