Kandaya resort is a new luxury destination located in Daan Bantayan, north of Cebu. It's about a 3-hr drive from the city (depending on traffic) and is a perfect spot for a weekend getaway to enjoy a spectacular view of the beach.
The property is very exclusive and you need to have a confirmed reservation before you can go in. At the lobby, we were greeted by their staff with scented wet towels and a refreshing glass of buko juice.
After checking in, we were led to our room. I love how spacious the room is (and mind you, this is just the deluxe room). The room also has a Nespresso machine, perfect for those who need a caffeine fix before soaking up the sun :)
Even the bathroom is quite big and they use Malin + Goetz for their toiletries which i super love (yes, i'm in love with everything associated with New York LOL!)
The far end of the room also opens up directly to the resort's spa.
But what sets this resort apart is the stunning landscape of the pool against the backdrop of the white sand beach which is super Instagram worthy!
Dedon furnitures are also strategically placed in the beach and pool side area. This gives you the perfect excuse to chill and just kill time :)
Their Kusina restaurant also did not disappoint and surprisingly not too pricey. The standout for me was the pork porchetta, similar to a lechon belly, only fancier :)
Overall, i had a grand time and would definitely recommend this resort. It's definitely worth coming back to :)
