Ever wondered where to stay when visiting Siargao Island for the first time? :)
Buddha's Surf Resort is strategically located in Catangnan, General Luna between General Luna town proper and a few minutes bike ride away from the infamous Cloud 9 spot and other surf breaks. The Resort is pretty ideal for first timer- tourists or surfers alike. Buddha's Surf Resort has this very unique laid back feel . The whole resort premise is very quiet and solemn, perfect for the travelers who wants to fully enjoy their "me-time" or simple have a precious moments with their family.
Buddha's Surf Resort has a two-storey restaurant which usually serves Thai cuisine (heey, they have pancakes as well, so don't you worry you, non-thai eaters.) The upper deck is so nice, you can actually have a glimpse of the ocean while dining. The upper deck also serves as the bar. Every Thursdays, Buddha's Surf Resort has "Acoustic Nights" where both locals and tourists flock their ways to enjoy the night with some booze and some feel-good music. A number of rooms and also a house rental just within the Resorts grounds.
Upon Checking in :) Mandatory post with a Buddha carrying a surf board. How genius! Whoever idea is this, man, you are such a genius!
I stayed at Buddha's Surf Resort for 3 days and 2 nights. This review is basically from a simple backpackers point of view *wink*
I love how it is located in between the town proper and the famous surf breaks. However, I always prefer a place near the beach for my daily dose of sun,sand and sea. Buddha's Surf Resort is situated just right though.
The place is so so good. It is relaxing. Also, a great place where you can meet great people! (Cheers to the Buddha's Guests I made friends with)
Amenities/Facilities & Services 4/5
Amenities/Facilities & Services are just so fabulous. I had all the basic amenities that I needed. Buddha's Surf Resort also offers tours and other activities (Aside from surfing) such as Caving, Island hopping, Golfing, Boating ETC. Just tell them what you want and they would gladly help you with your requests. You may also rent a motorcycle with or without surf racks.It usually priced at 450/day but I guess you can negotiate with them for a discount if you're going to avail their long term rentals.
The Restaurant& Bar Area
Pretty neat corner at the Buddha's surf Resort's Restaurant.
The garden.. Volleyball area.. etc
The other door of my room <3
I got their Standard Room and I totally loved it. Airconditioner, A Flat screen TV (Which by the way, I didn't use. Im not fond of TV's when traveling), hot/cold RAIN shower, FREE wifi throughout, and a Private Balcony with deck chairs.
I was assigned to this room. Look! How lovely, isn't it? :)
1,950 Php for the Standard Room.
TWO DOORS. On the left is the main door and on the right part is the door that leads to a second balcony which I believe would be so cool for private Yoga Classes.
There goes the bed(s) <3 Pretty huge and very comfortable.
I really didn't have backpains/neckpains issue every waking morning (Which I usually get from other hotels bed... oppps!) Clean and good smelling pillows and blankets.
I love the room colors!!! It will give you the "Happy vibes" once you enter the room. plus, my room smelled so so goood! :) Clean towels and linens were provided. The room is pretty spacious for a
lonely solo backpacker like me.
I love this corner too! Just beside the spacious and grand comfort room. I actually plan on reinventing this thing in my own room. woooza wooza! :D
Favorite part of the room. This Front balcony was my lazy spot. I spent so many hours there just eating and reading!
Yoga Classes starts at 4.30pm Tuesday-Saturday (5 times a week)
I Really had a great time. I love the place and I can see myself spending another memorable days at this resort in the future. I made new friends, I learnt a lot, just what I exactly needed. A home away from home.
Thank you Ashley (Resort Owner) & Pannie (Resort Manager) for giving me a memorable stay. I definitely enjoyed my three days stay at your Surf Resort. I will surely come back soon :) You guys are the best! Infinite x'sand o's from me!!! See you soon!
