In the sea

A coral reef extends about 100 yards from the shore, an ideal place for both young and old to explore the wonders of nature, particularly at low tide. The sea is crystal clear, ideal for snorkelling. A short walk along the beach and the reef disappears giving way to open sea ideal for swimming.


Adjacent to the beach, the restaurant is wonderfully relaxing, enjoying both the cool sea breeze and spectacular sunsets. It provides fine dining with optional seating in the gardens. Booking is highly reccommended and for groups of more than 4 it is essential. Our hotel guests have prority seating.

Spider portrait

The inspiration

The  creative design. art and ambience of the Resort was inspired by 'Spider' (Peter Maxwell Hindes). He lived and worked in Hong Kong for 35 years as a teacher of Art mainly in King George V School, He lived here in the Philippines from 2001 until his untimely death in 2010. The resort is a reflection of his artistic endeavours featuring many of his own creations. and also his personal collection of indigenous arts and crafts, giving the resort its own unique and distinctive style. We hope you enjoy the ambience he created and that the spirit in which it was nurtured will remain with us always. 


Sorry but no pets are allowed in the resort
